Top 5 Holiday Gifts for Dad
Heâ€™s your husband, your honey, your baby-daddy. No matter what you call him, chances are heâ€™s done good for you (even if heâ€™s driven you a little nuts at times) this year. Show your love and appreciation with some thoughtful gifts tailored to the harder-to-shop-for gender.
1) Instant Bartender Tool
A 10-in-one tool thatâ€™s the Swiss Amy Knife of cocktails will keep him making delicious glasses of joy this holiday season and beyond. Itâ€™s got everything from a zester to a corkscrew to a muddler. The Bar10der(get it?) is at Uncommon Goods for $50.
2) Skeledog T-Shirt
Maybe he needs another tee like he needs another tie, but Skeledog t-shirts are cool, with X-ray versions of commonly owned dog breeds, silkscreened on a high quality American Apparel t-shirt. Fun, useful, and even educational when the wee one inevitably says, â€śDaddy, whatâ€™s that?â€ť while pointing to the pup on his chest. At Skeledog.com, $25.
3) An iPhone Telephoto Lens
He can simply attach this new gadget to his iPhone and instantly give it a 12x zoom. Perfect for vacations, catching the little one from afar, and just plain messing around with a fun gadget.Â Make sure you get the version thatâ€™s compatible with his specific iPhone. At Amazon, $20.
4) Natural, Manly Skin Care
This gift set from Samâ€™s Natural on Etsy is packed with good stuff for groomable dudesâ€“aftershave, deodorant, lotion, and more. All in really stylie yet masculine packaging. At Samâ€™s Natural on Etsy, $35.
5) The iPad Mini
Has he been extra-good this year? Then hook him up with the new iPad Mini, a thing of technological beauty. He can watch movies, make movies, surf the web, read bedtime stories, and answer email all in one freshly compact device. And you get to â€śborrowâ€ť it too. At Amazon, starting at $241.99.
