Gift Inspiration for Dad (& Grandpa Too!)

Tired of buying dad a new shirt or tie?? Father’s Day is next weekend and we stepped out of the proverbial box to find new gift ideas for the most important men in our lives.

Sports-Fanatic Dad
Summer means water sports, and whether your family is at the beach, in the pool or on the lake, dads are in the sun and surf while swimming, boating, boogie boarding and water skiing. It’s just as important for dads to be protected from the sun as the rest of the family, so help him do it in style with a cool rash guard and new swim trunks.

Golf-Obsessed Dad
For the dad that loves to golf every chance he gets, a new set of top-of-the-line performance golf clubs will make him jump for joy. The pro golfers and engineers at Parsons Xtreme Golf have created one of the best performing sets of clubs around, using high-performance alloys and elastomers along with a special weighting system that, according to the pros, delivers amazing results. PGA Tour Champion (and dad!) Ryan Moore is a fan. In addition to being available at Cool Clubs worldwide, clubs can be purchased directly from PXG. The company also offers a custom club fitting session by appointment at their Scottsdale National Research Center in Arizona.

Grill-Master Dad
It may be a bit stereotypical, but dads love grillin’ and chillin’.  Techy dads in particular will appreciate the iGrill2 Bluetooth Thermometer, which let’s them track the progress of dinner on their iPhone, while they’re busy prepping side dishes or margaritas. Hmmmm… our mouths are watering.

Health-Conscious Dad
We are personally fascinated with the Peak fitness and sleep tracker that tells us how much we’re moving and eating, when we need to get moving, and tracks our sleep habits. It’s like having mom in your ear, but without the actual nagging, and makes you more aware of your healthy habits (or lack thereof!) in a cool way. We’re buying one for our dads and husbands both.

Everyone loves a personalized gift, especially parents and grandparents, and Shutterfly makes it easy to create your own photo book or other photo gifts from coffee mugs to key chains. With family photos being the focus, this special gift is one he’ll keep forever. And, right now this top photo site has a number of sales happening for Father’s Day.
