Cool gifts to celebrate the dad in your life


From health, to leisure time, these will bring a smile to any dad

Father’s Day is today! Aaaaaah! A homemade card is†delightful but let’s put our heads together and come up with a cool gift to go with it. I love when magazines suggest BBQ sauce as the perfect present for Dad. SO bizarre, right? Would you ever give your mother pancake mix wrapped up with a bow? I didn’t think so. Here are a few items I found on the internet that I think will be a big hit:

● Fitbit Charge HR (click here: ) This particular wristband includes a heart rate monitor, tracks his workout history and has caller ID and a watch! Awesome, huh? It’s a bit pricier than the other versions, but worth it, in my opinion.

● Mitchell Bat Company ® click here: ) Sports paraphernalia on the walls as decor can be very, very bad. However, it can also be tastefully done! Do not get it twisted fellas, I am not suggesting hanging this over the fireplace, or anything drastic; but, these hand painted bats really do become pieces of art. Perfect for an office or man cave. You have to check it out.

Father's-Day-2015● Hammock (click here: ) Lounging is a hobby fine-tuned by the majority of father’s out there. What? It’s true. This beautiful hammock positioned under the shade of a tree in the back yard is like a little slice of heaven. Assemble it and surprise him with the newspaper and a cool drink.

● Polaroid Cube (click here: ) The cheaper alternative to the GoPro! I have never seen one in person, nor do I know anyone with it, BUT, I think for a trendy item it’s the way to go. It is magnetic so it sticks to any metal surface. I am sure that it will find its way onto a golf club in no time flat. Our family will be subject to endless footage of putting videos for months to come…
