Dad's Day Gift IdeasPosted: Updated:
Are you ready for Father's Day because it is coming on Sunday, June 16th and that will get here fast. Here are some gift ideas for the different personalities on your Father's Day list that may include your husband, Dad, Father-in-law and others. Take a look and happy Dad's Day shopping...
*For the Stylin' Pop: Visit Kohl's to see all kinds of Dad's Day gift ideas and if the Pop on your list is a styling type of guy, check out the Marc Anthony Tight-Weave Fedora that sells at Kohl's for $34 or the handsome blue Rock & Republic Winger V-Neck Tee that goes for $28 at Kohl's. Remember to get on the Kohl's email list because since I joined (it is free), I constantly get coupons, so I always save at the register, too. Plus now through June 8th, get Kohl's cash for every $50 spent and that cool Kohl's cash is redeemable June 10th through June 22nd, 2013.
*For the Healthy Him: At some point in midlife, a lot of Dads decide to make healthier decisions. I've seen it with my own Dad and recently with my husband, so packing a healthy lunch, instead of getting daily takeout at work, is a better and less expensive choice, so surprise him with a nice BUILT Crosstown Lunch Bag ($19.99, builtny.com), but add a sweet twist. Pack it full with his favorite foods and treats and add a sweet Father's Day card. The BUILT Crosstown Lunch Bag insulates food on the go for up to four hours. To order and for more information visit www.builtny.com.
*For the Cookout King: The George Foreman 5 Serving, Removable Plate Grill ($59.99, Wal-Mart) -- This sharp looking red grill provides the power of precision cooking with its variable temperature, which provides endless meal opportunities. Dual cooking positions also tilt the grill for thick cuts of meat for hefty sandwiches, which is very manly, of course. The George Tough nonstick coating and dishwasher-safe removable plates make clean-up a breeze while the exclusive slope design removes 42% of fat from uncooked 80/20 Ground Chuck burgers. I like that part a lot and my husband will love the ease of grilling with this cool grill. I'm looking forward to suggesting that he make us thick Panini sandwiches with his new gift. Yum!

...And support a local business by adding the amazing OKB Old Kentucky Barbeque Sauce and a handsome OKB red apron to the grill gift, too. A good friend of mine (and one of my favorite mentors) DeeDee Crook tells me that this sauce recipe has been handed down in her family for 175 years, so she decided, along with her husband Mike, to keep the recipe a secret, as promised to her family, but they have bottled it for all of us to enjoy. So give the gift of a secret sauce that also supports a local business. Each bottle sells for $6.99 and the sharp apron goes for $21.95 at www.okbsauce.com.
*For the Well Groomed Guy: A Mitch Kit for Men (the Mitch products shown in my segment range from $13.99 to $16.99 in professional salons, Paul Mitchell schools and at www.mitchtheman.com) -- This sharp hair care line created just for men includes cool products like Construction Paste, Double Hitter, Clean Cut, Barber's Classic and more. Put together a spa basket for his handsome head.
*To Pamper Pop: LUSH Ka-Pow Wrapped Bath & Body Unisex Gift Kit ($86.95 at www.lushusa.com and LUSH stores) -- This fun gift, that comes in the perfect festive Father's Day box, pampers Dad because it is filled with nine of the most stimulating products that are made by LUSH. Some of the items that fill the fun box include the Wiccy Magic Muscles Massage Bar, which is an icy hot bar for sore muscles; Ocean Salt Cleanser, the Buffy Body Butter Bar, Solid Shampoo with stimulating spices for thinning hair and more. Great gift that will pamper Pop.
*For the Mixologist Master: Dial-A-Drink Cocktail Shaker ($19.99 at Bed, Bath & Beyond) - This cool contraption transforms him into a talented bartender in seconds, so if he likes to entertain, this is the perfect gift. The stainless steel shaker provides 15 cocktail recipes and the ingredients appear on the side of the shaker as the base is twisted. Fun and functional gift!
*For the Sports Fanatic Father: Various books at Walgreens that include:
*Par For the Course Golf Book ($9.95 at Walgreens)
*Baseball ($12.95 at Walgreens)
*ESPN Uncyclopedia ($13.95 at Walgreens)
These books are all nice hard covers and provide fun facts, details and stats about Dad's favorite sport. They are also packaged with a to and from gift label, which is a perfect grab on the go gift for Dad that is sold at Walgreens.
*For The Sentimental Soul: Father's Legacy Book ($12.95 at Walgreens) -- This special book enables Dad to record his favorite memories, his life's special moments, his history and more into a handsome hard cover book that can be kept forever by Dad's loved ones. Plus kids will enjoy interviewing Dad and filling in the blanks provided in this special keepsake book.
*For The Cool Camper: The Magic Mesh Hands Free Screen Door ($14.99 at Walgreens) -- This cool contraption makes a screen door appear instantly because this magnetic door cover fits over any single or sliding glass door frame and it works perfect for an RV, too. It can be set up in seconds with no tools required, so this gift works great for Dads who like to camp, cook and entertain since it can be used for an RV and at home. This makes carrying those grilled burgers in and out of the RV or house a breeze, while keeping the bugs out, too. I love this unique idea.
*For The Fix It Father: 8 n 1 Screwdriver ($5.99 at Walgreens) -- Dad gets eight different tools in one handy screwdriver and you stay on your gift budget since the price is right. Perfect for the fix it Father.
