Father’s Day is less than 2 weeks away. Have you found just the right gift? If not, don’t worry. There’s still plenty of time to score that one item that is sure to put a smile on Dad’s face, that tells Dad just how much you appreciate him. And it doesn’t have to be a tie! But if a tie is what he wants, there’s some pretty fun ones for that too.
So lets get shopping! Here’s ten ideas to jump start your own Father’s Day gift hunt.
Garden Sculptures For the Gardening Dad
These whimsical garden sculptures from Uncommon Goods are sure to make Dad smile every time he steps into his backyard domain. Each design is hand crafted by artist Chris Cooks and is then aged to achieve a bright rust patina. My persona favorites are the Sea Serpent Garden Sculpture and the Quails Garden Sculpture.
Chris Cooks garden sculptures range from $45 to $180 at Uncommon Goods.
Corksicles To Keep Dad’s Cool
Give Dad the afternoon off to relax by the pool, or lounge on the deck, time to enjoy a nice, tall cold brew or a favorite bottle of wine. Just be sure to put a Corksicle in it! Dad’s drink will keep it’s cool through the heat of the afternoon with these innovative chilling sticks by Corksicle. Corkcicles also made Oprah’s Favorite Things 2012 list. Just in case you don’t believe me about how cool these chilling sticks are.
Sennheiser Momentum Headphones
The music-loving Dad is sure to appreciate a supreme pair of headphones. Also great for the Dad who listen to audiobooks or enjoys watching movies from his iPad or tablet. One headphone sure to please is the Sennheiser Momentum over the ear luxe headphones. Super soft and super comfortable earpads will keep Dad’s ears super happy when he’s listening to his tunes.
Sennheiser Momentum headphones are $349.95 at Amazon and HeadRoom.
Feed The Sweet Tooth M&M Dispenser
Dad’s got a sweet tooth? Give him a personalized M&M dispenser and there’ll be no mistaking whose candy is in the jar! So let him know you are his #1 fan – who knows, maybe he’ll even share his M&M’s with you.
