It's almost Father's Day. So it makes sense to write a Father's Day post. But unlike every other tired worn out father's day gift list. This one is awesome. I'm only picking 3 things. The three awesomest things I can think of. Two of which I own or have bought for my Dad and used. One, I've got my fingers crossed that I might get.
If the Dad in your life is special, then you want a gift that makes him say "wow" when he opens it. But more importantly, you want to give him something that makes him smile and say "wow" when he's still using it 10 years from now.
If your Dad is not special, maybe he's kind of a jerk, then buy yourself one of these and send him a picture of you with it. (ps my Dad IS special, I'm very lucky)
Here's my very, very select list of Father's Day gift ideas:
The Sangean H201 Shower Radio
What? A shower radio? Seriously Jason?
If this is what you're thinking right now, I get it. It's a radio, an AM/FM radio, and it's $70. Yup, $70.
This thing is awesome! The sound is out of this world. The fit and finish are flawless. It's so water proof, you can throw it in the pool, it floats! Don't believe me? These things are selling like crazy and the reviews are great!
The best part - the connection system to the shower wall is perfectly thought out. You don't have to drill any holes and there are no suction cups. There are 3 sticky pads that hook to a bracket. The bracket let's you easily remove the radio from the shower so you can take it with you. It takes all of 2 minutes to install.
Sticky pads? Yeah, I know. I honestly was really skeptical about it sticking to the tile wall. But it's been up for months, even with our full-on steamy shower use and it's as solid as ever.
Mock me if you want. This shower radio kicks butt! Well worth the money. It should last a very long time. I love listening to baseball and the news and weather in the morning. Jenn loves it. The kids love our shower now because of it. Yeah, I sing in the shower---big time!
The Clink 'n Drink Bottle Opener
When he sees someone use it he goes…. "Hey, how'd you like that bottle opener, pretty cool isn't it."
This is one of those presents that when he opened it he was like "…. Uh...thanks, I guess?" I mean, it was bottle opener. But he didn't know yet how much fun it is to open a bottle with this thing and how much people talk about it at parties.
The real trick is the magnets. I'm not sure you're even allowed to have magnets this strong but somehow they got ahold of some. As soon as you open the bottle the magnet pulls the cap away, as if by magic.
They have a bunch of different designs, this is just one. Check 'em out.
The Leatherman Skeletool CX Multitool
No other contestants will be necessary.
You give a man, of any variety, a Leatherman Skeletool Multitool and a hand full of granola and he can survive out in the wild for 2 to 3 years.
I'll admit. This last suggestion is kind of for me. Jenn, if you're readying this, this is a "great" gift idea. I do not have this "Skeletool" yet. I need to be given it so I can use it and write a proper review for everyone who reads this blog.
Yes, my observant wife, I do have several knives and even several multi-tools. In fact I have several "Leatherman" multi-tools. But you see, a man cannot have to many knives or multitools. It's like saying, we have to many stars in the sky. Or, that you are to beautiful, it just isn't possible.
I would treasure and be wowed in receiving the Skeletool Multitool by Leatherman for Father's Day. Perhaps your dad would to. Did I mention there's free shipping under Amazon Prime?
Don't Forget Your Dad
He won't admit it. But if you forget your Dad you'll make a small tear well up in the corner of his eye. He'll never let that tear fall or even leave that big eye crevice, but it will be there. And it will be your fault.
So think ahead. Dust off that wallet of yours and get him something awesome.
I only had three ideas but I'm sure you guys have more. What's the best Father's Day present you've given or received? Tell me in the comments below.
