Have a super dad, but unsure of what to get him? Don't want to offend him with some lame gift? Then you definitely need to tune-in to these cooler-than-cool gifts that suit the manly-man dad. These gifts won't go unused!
. Man and high-definition TV. It is a natural pairing. There is no dad out there that wouldn't go crazy for another HDTV in the house. This Acer 32-Inch 1080p LCD TV
would look great in his master bedroom, in the kitchen, in his mancave, in his office, in the bathroom or right alongside his other HDTV in the family room -- to be dedicated to say, gaming, perhaps? It's just $330, which is a great price for 1080p. If you want to surprise Dad with something bigger, get him the TCL 40-Inch 1080p LCD HDTV
for $399.99 (regularly $649.99). Both TVs qualify for free shipping and free 30-day returns. Now, if you thought this gift couldn't get any manlier, think again. Pair his HDTV with this Universal Remote Control + Bottle Opener
($29.95), and it will be like an extra scoop in his ice cream manwich. Mmmanly.
. Dad's natural scent may be manly enough, but it likely isn't one to be boasting about. Gift him with a cologne that will bring out a fresher, stronger, more sophisticated side to his scent. One that is not only masculine, but also alluring. You'll be doing him and everyone around him a favor! For a timeless scent that is fresh and deep, and smells great on both the young and mature, Ask Men
likes Irish Tweed by Creed
($130). If Creed colognes were good enough for past kings and Napoleon III, this one will be perfect for Dad. If you're looking to spend less, and want to get him a more trendy scent, Dsquared2 heWood 'Rocky Mountain Wood'
($59) is the way to go. The scent is strong, pure, earthy and mysterious, with hints of violet and musk -- popular ingredients for 2011.
. Dads love guy time. Guy time on camping trips, guy time at sporting events, guy time in the backyard -- it's all good. The one way that you could make guy time for Dad even awesome-r is to get him a grill that he can bust out at any of his guy time huddles. Something like this propane Coleman Road Trip Grill LXE
($139) would likely ensure you a #1 spot on his People Who Rock list. Nothing could make him happier than imagining all the meats he could grill for him and his guys to devour as they talk about sports, work, life and world events, thanks to your gift of grill. If it's a charcoal grill he'd prefer, this Weber 22.5" Kettle Grill
($89.70) will serve him well. And, if you're looking to get Dad a full-size gas grill to sit on the patio, this Uniflame 5-Burner 62,000 BTU Gas Grill with side burner
is a great value at just $250.
. The manly-man Dad is a carnivore. If he could have it his way, meat would always be on the menu. That's why you should seriously consider getting him a beefed-up gourmet variety pack from Omaha Steaks
. You'll find most of the selections on sale right now, and an additional promotion of $10 off your purchase of $75 or more. This is definitely a gift that Dad will want to sink his teeth into! Sets start from just $39.99 -- regularly $91!
. Dads and DVDs used to be best friends, but they've since grown apart. These days, Dad is pining for Blu-ray. And, who could blame him? Dads, like any dude, want what's newer, faster, sharper. A Blu-ray disc player would make his dreams come true -- especially one like this LG BD630 Network Blu-ray Disc Player
($96) that delivers astounding full HD 1080p performance, DVD up-scaling, Dolby Digital Plus surround sound and Internet access that allows you to stream Netflix, CinemaNow, Vudu and YouTube without a computer. Tuck in a couple of Blu-ray movies that dads consider favorites -- like Shawshank Redemption
, Field of Dreams
or The Dark Knight
-- and you're set.
. Year in, year out, The Man's got Dad workin' like a dog. Help him look a little more stylish, and a little less haggard, with a handsome Rugged Twill Briefcase Bag
from J. Crew ($98). The indestructibility of this bag will remind him of his own strength of will and determination -- helping him to power through his day, and look good while doing it. If your Dad's taste requires something sleeker, more professional, he won't say "no" to this Topman Leather Briefcase
in dark brown ($120). There's nothing like a Topman briefcase for a top dog!
. Dads are competitive. They like the adrenaline rush of sports and the thrill of a mission. And, most of all, they like to win. Getting Dad a gaming console would be a 'win' in his book. Gaming is a way for dads to escape the rigors of reality; a way for them to take a time-out. It's a fun stress-reliever, and it allows him to get in touch with his primal manliness without risking any real injury. Gaming is simply satisfying. But, make sure you get him the right console. The sexy, new PS3 Slim
is a great choice. It's now more affordable ($290-$299), it's slimmer, it's quieter and the games are in high-def. It also doubles as a Blu-ray player and up-scaling DVD player, it has built-in Wi-Fi, a built-in Web browser, a spacious hard drive and it even cooks you breakfast. Just kidding on that final one. If your dad is more of a sports gamer, go with the XBox 360 Slim
($299). Note that 'slim' is the way to go with these consoles!
. Of course, Dad's a busy guy. He'd like to be able to catch all of his favorite thought-provoking shows, chest-beating games and macho movies, but it's just not always possible. Life has a funny way of getting in the way like that! Give him back that missing little piece of his digital happiness by allowing him to record the TV that he's been making-do without. This TiVo Premiere
(now just $77) will replace his cable box and record up to 45 hours of HD programming for him to review and enjoy -- in slow-mo, if he wants -- when he gets a chance. There's full 1080i and 1080p HD support, and TiVo will even learn his viewing habits over time because it's smart. It's a cable box, a movie box, a Web box and a music box all in one. A monthly subscription is required, but it's just $20. If you want to get him a generous lifetime subscription, it'll be $499.
. Yes, you knew I would suggest this. That's because you know it's a great suggestion. If you can pony-up enough money ($499), you can get Dad the gift he and all of his guy friends want him to have. Does Dad need
this? No. No one needs
an iPad (first gen. or 2). But, many millions of people think they do! Your dad included. So, if you want to blow his mind this Father's Day, get him the iPad 2
. Oh, and don't forget about that nifty iPad Smart Cover
. Is there anything more satisfying to a dad than being able to fix a problem for his family with his own two hands? It's a short list. Help Dad become a better Mr. Fix-it with the powerful gift of tools this Father's Day. From now through June 19, you can save $20 on your $100 order of DEWALT power tools and accessories
on Amazon. DEWALT is a trusted brand offering some of the best quality and most coveted tools on the market. The better Dad's tools, the more he fixes, the more empowered he feels.
. Whether entertaining indoors or outdoors, Dad won't be satisfied without a little ambient music. A party's just not a party without the tunes! Give him the gift of better parties with a Wireless Indoor/Outdoor Speaker with Wireless Sender/Receiver
from Rocketfish ($184.99). Have him hook it up to his iPod, and guests will have nice background music to talk over. Have him play music through his receiver, and you're asking for a full-on dance party. For a lower-cost alternative, turn to the Avtek NXG Technology Wireless Indoor/Outdoor Speaker System
($49). This is also weather-resistant, but has an additional blue LED light that illuminates at night. And, it's these subtle details that all men love to show off!
. Men are always trying to improve their game. Whether it be on the dating scene, in the office, on the field, on the courts, in life. Now, with the gift of a poker set, you can help Dad improve his game at the tables. You'll also be offering him just one more way to unwind with his guy pals. This basic set of 300 suited pieces
will cost you just over $35, and a larger 500 piece Big Slick set
is just $57. If you want only the best for Dad, then shell out a little more for the 500 Piece Pro Poker Clay Poker Set
($92). Also consider getting him a Las Vegas Style Texas Hold'em Poker Tabletop
. What's a man without a beer? A man who needs a beer, STAT! Play to Dad's love of the brew by giving him the tools to make his very own "cold ones." This Mr. Beer Premium gold Edition Home Brew Kit
($43) comes with a 2-gallon fermenting key, two standard refill brew packs, and eight reusable plastic 1-liter bottles. Give him this, and you will be making him the most popular Dad on the block. If you think he'd rather have his beer made for him, sign him up for a Beer of the Month Club
. Each month, he'll receive four different beer styles. The 3 Month membership is $33.95 per month ($101.85 total), the 6 Month is $32.95 per month ($197.70 total) and the 12 Month is $31.95 per month ($383.40). You could also get him a membership for the Beer of the Season Club
, where he'll get a shipment of beer every third month (four times a year) for just $33.95 per month ($135.80 total).
