So what do we get for Father during father's day? hard question. Father's are usually the strict and strong figure in the household. Gifts are not usually their thing, since they're the ones earning most of the money around the house. Although they would accept any father's day gift you give them, a well thought of gift could mean a difference between you getting the next car, or not. (kidding) Seriously though, father's may seem strict in the outside, but deep inside they're like jelly and thanks to President Nixon, who signed the Father's Day Law in 1972, Father's have their own day to feel mushy and no one can judge them for that.
Here is Top10evrything.com's Gift Ideas for Father's Day 2011
Mimobot USB Thumb Drive
MIMOBOT (pronounced mee-mo-bot) flash drives are a line of collectible designer toy USB flash drives launched in 2005 by Mimoco, Inc., It has long been the company to beat when it comes to cool and funky thumb drives, and their latest Star Wars and DC Comics licensed drives only reinforce this line as the sweetest around. The way it works with Mimoco is that you can choose whatever design you want, and then decide how much storage you need with options from 2 to 16 gigs. Mimioco usb has an ironman, luke skywalker and even batman. Roar.
Gunnar Optiks are high performance computer eyewear optimized for the digital screen. It is comprised of a proprietary lens material in an advanced geometry tuned for specific distances from the computer. In other words, this is one heck of a gift you can give to your dad’s aging eyes, and prevent him from getting further eye strain when looking at those computer p@rn.. Ehem. Pictures from windows, which we all know they love.
5.11 Tactical Gear
Cost: Depends on what you buy.
I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: I love 5.11 Tactical clothes and accessories. I wear and use their products every day. The tactical pants and shirts are well-made, and have a plethora of pockets, tabs, and flaps that are hugely useful for geeks who want to be able to carry their technology around in an organized, accessible manner. Their various bags are the perfect solution for dads who need to tote computers and cables with them without being accused of murse-usage. But this year, I want to focus on two more general-purpose projects.
First is the Chameleon Soft-Shell Jacket. It’s the perfect middle-weight jacket, good for chilly days down to freezing, but okay for when the sun comes out. It also has pockets and secret compartments where cell phones, wallets, earphones, mifi cards and so on can all be stashed and carried easily. Second, myShear sunglasses. They’re not terribly geeky, but they are the best pair of shades I’ve ever owned. That’s not necessarily because they’ve got some magic super-glass, or a designer name on them, but because they’re the right balance of lightweight and sturdy construction. I’ve had too many expensive pairs of sunglasses fall apart on me over the years, and too many cheap pairs just feel cheap. These achieve a middle ground that feels just right.
Cost a Lot: 499$
So if tactical wear is not your thing, and your dad is more of a home buddy, then the ipad 2 is the right gift for him. Once you pick up iPad 2, it’ll be hard to put down. That’s the idea behind the all-new design. It’s 33 percent thinner and up to 15 percent lighter, so it feels even more comfortable in your hands.2 And it makes surfing the web, checking email, watching movies, and reading books so natural, you might forget there’s incredible technology under your fingers. The best and probably the more expensive father’s day gift he’ll ever get.
Wrap a Nap
Costs a lot less: 15$
Okay so your dad isn’t the outdoor type, and isn’t the geeky type, so why not get him something that he is good at? A Wrap a Nap. It's cushy like a pillow, isolating like ear muffs, and blocks out light like a blindfold. So I guess it's also good for your dad to get that sound sleep he always wanted before but never got a chance because as a kid you kept running around him. Time to pay back the sleep he deserves.
I don’t have time to buy those things you mentioned! What do I do!!!
What can you do. The cheesiest thing that you can do is to make a photo collage of your dad. Awww Sweeet. It’s a gift any father’s heart would surely melt on sight.
But how do you do a photo collage? Well Simple. Use Photoshop!
I don’t know Photoshop!
You clearly lack skills for the modern world.
Nevertheless you’re lucky! This website does it all for you http://www.photovisi.com/
Harley Motorcycle / Accessories
If you’re Father is the Bad boy type or is again in that middle life crisis, and you have enough cash in hand, get him a Harley Motorcycle. To be specific get him that Tri Glide Classic. Three wheel motorcycle, that even the most unbalanced father can learn how to drive. If he can’t drive this thing, then no one else can.
NBA Finals Ticket
Cost: No Idea
Still nothing yet? How bout an NBA Final 2010-2011 Ticket. By Father’s day this june 19, 2011, Dallas and Miami would assumingly be playing (provided it reaches a game 7), but if not, then you could always celebrate father’s day a week early?
Hugs and Kisses
