Only two days left until we honour all fathers out there and celebrate all that the relationships with our dads have given us! For those who are last-minute shoppers, here are some quick gift ideas that are either practical or entertaining and respect your wallet:
For dad – an iPod shuffle from Apple. This is a great pick because it is compact, clips on and can be used to pump up a great workout or act as a musical traveling companion. At $49, it is a great gadget at a great price and you can pre-load it up with your papa’s fave music to add a personal touch.
For grandpa – a leather wallet. This is a great pick because men’s wallets tend to wear down quickly, so you can replace your grandfather’s old wallet with something simple, stylish and has tons of pockets for his cards. I would say to hit up Danier Leather for this – great leather accessories at great prices, such as $35 for a nice wallet!
For the dad-to-be – a gift card from a book store. This is a great pick because when most men find out they are going to become a dad for the first time, they want as much information as possible. A gift card for books is a nice idea because it will help to educate the future dad and they can pick out the books they like the best. Indigo/Chapters is a solid pick – tons of books to choose from.
For the dad with a young baby – a DVD set of a great television show. This is a great pick because with those late night cries and feedings, the young dad may be up very late. As he rocks his baby back to sleep, he can pop in a DVD and watch an episode at a soft volume. Personally, I recommend the show The Newsroom – very topical, incorporates current events, great characters and witty.
