11 Gift ideas for Father’s Day

Last year I suggested we get together a list of what we’d resorted to for Father’s Day presents, so that THIS year we’d have more ideas to consider.

I continue to recommend the Click ‘n’ Dig Wireless Remote Finder (photo from Amazon.com). We’ve had it a year, and Paul still says “Best. gift. ever.” about twice a week. One of the four sensor thingies broke after being dropped one (1) million times, but we still had a spare so we just replaced it. We keep the remote itself nailed to the wall so it can’t get lost. If we broke another of the little sensor thingies, I would buy another set without even thinking about it.

Last year, Alicia mentioned getting a travel coffee press/mug (photo from Amazon.com) with fancy coffee, for good coffee at the office or on business trips.

Karen mentioned that she got a pack of men’s t-shirts and had each child design one. Then she went over their designs with Tulip fabric paint (photo from Amazon.com). The dad can wear these as-is—or if the designs are truly, er, TRULY wonderful, he can wear them ONLY “protected by” his button-down shirts.

Amanda suggested a themed Tervis tumbler (photos from Amazon.com; golf, Star Wars, Batman, Superman, mustache, turtle, tool belt—and there are a million sport-team ones) filled with a favorite candy.

(The rest of the comments and ideas can be seen here.)

Or there’s Darth Tater (photo from Amazon.com).

Or Lord of the Rings Pez dispensers (photo from Amazon.com).

Perhaps his very own Webkinz (photo from Amazon.com), now that everyone else in the family has one?

An updated World’s-Best-Dad-concept t-shirt (photo from Amazon.com).

Or a Dr. Who beach towel (photo from Amazon.com).

Or a Minecraft wallet (photo from Amazon.com).

Or Paul loves these things called Piperoids. I don’t know what they are. They’re like little models you build out of paper. There are a whole bunch of different ones (search “Piperoid” on Amazon); the picture above (from Amazon.com) is called Smoke & Bill. I don’t even know.
