Father’s Day is only a few days away…do you know what you’re getting the special man in your life? If not, no sweat. We’ve got you covered.
For the Fitness Fanatic: Fitbit Flex
Finally, give your dad the gift he’s actually always wanted: sleep. Fitbit’s new Flex Wireless Activity & Sleep Wristband will help him maximize his ZZZs by monitoring his nightly sleep schedule for interruptions and silently vibrating in the morning to wake him. Best of all, he can log workouts, sync stats to his phone and challenge friends online. ($99.95; Fitbit.com)
For the Golfer: Garmin Approach S3 Golf Watch
Usually find dad on the golf course? Get him the latest innovation in snazzy golf accessories. This GPS watch comes packed with features, including access to over 27,000 worldwide courses, customizable distances and yardage points, score cards, and a function we love most: an odometer! ($349.99, Garmin.com; Get free shipping on all orders over $100, now through June 30th! Checkout code: ShipFREE)
For the Beer Man: Samuel Adams Beer Lover’s Box
Craft beer savants will delight in this surprising—yet totally tasty—beer and chocolate combo from the makers at TCHO chocolates. The Love of Beer chocolate gift box contains 12 PureNotes Dark “Chocolatey” bars that have been expertly paired with Samuel Adams Boston Lager for a truly unique taste. ($16.95, TCHO.com; beer not included)
For the Kitchen Dweller: Claude Cookbook and Tablet Companion
Too many cook(book)s in the kitchen? Not with this nifty little dude. Claude is designed to hold up cookbooks, magazines and—for the modern-day kitchen whiz—tablets, so dear ole’ dad can whip up his trademark dishes, worry-free. (Need healthy recipes this Sunday? We’ve got you covered!) ($34.99, Amazon.com)
For the Runner-at-Heart: Zazzle Pop Art Tie
Put a crafty spin on a classic Father’s Day gift with this silky running tie. We love the little running-man print, but if you’re not crazy about it, you can customize the tie with your own photos, patterns and colors. It’s as close to handmade as you can get, without the glue and Popsicle sticks! ($38.50, Zazzle.com)
