Why would you want to give your dad a boring old tie when you have this guide brimming with wisdom and experience? Consider this your map to a successful Father's Day.

Razor Adult and Kid Electric Scooters
Razor e300 e200 e100
What's better than watching your kids smile while they rock an electric scooter? Yep, that's right, dad being right there beside them on his own. Get dad and kids both a scooter to spend some quality time with each other. These awesome rides were so much fun for my daughter and I. Some of the best Father's Day gifts are the ones that the whole family can experience and bond together over. Also, an adult size electric Razor scooter will make your father the envy of every dad on the block.
Price: E100: $116.99 E200: $157.99 E300 $216.99

Wahl Custom Shave, Beard and Body Groomer, and Elite Pro Clippers
Wahl Custom Shave
Let's be honest, it's pretty easy for dad to work hard and let his beard and other body hair grow out of control. However, no one wants to see that. Ever. Seriously that nasty ear hair has got to go. The shaver was perfect for travel and home while the beard and body groomer was really easy to use to keep my beard in line. These Wahl trimmers are surprisingly inexpensive as well. They are the gift that keeps on giving. Your dad gets a great shave and you don't have to look at what's hiding in that unkempt beard anymore.

Sandisk iXpand Flash Drive for iPhone and iPad
Sandisk iXpand

Raise your hand if you have a dad who's phone or tablet is filled with pictures or video. Does he ever have to delete pictures just to take more pictures? The iXpand makes it so easy to take those photos off your phone and put them directly on your computer. You plug it into the lightning port, it tells you what photos have not been moved yet, and it copies them them to the flash drive. Then, you use the USB port to plug it into your computer and complete the process. Even the most technologically challenged dad can figure this out. The iXpand comes in 64gb and 128gb models.
Price $99.99-$149.99

STOK Quattro Grill
STOK Quattro grill
Are you tired of me talking about the STOK Quattro yet? I have mentioned it in a few other posts because it is the most convenient grill I have ever owned. The Quattro has four burners and countless inserts to help lift your dad to grilling greatness. You can insert a pizza stone, kabob/rib rack, smoker, vegetable basket, dutch oven, and more! I'm not saying this BBQ will automatically give your dad a "Rib Festival Championship," but I am saying it will be much more difficult for him to win without one. You don't want to be responsible for costing him Rib Festival glory do you?
Price: $299.99

Virtue 9000 Portable Battery for Phones and Tablets
Virtue 9000 battery
Has your dad ever run out of battery on his phone or tablet while watching the big game, taking photos of grandkids, or watching cat videos? I thought so. There are a million portable batteries out there but none are designed with the look of a vintage calculator or those old handheld football games. Not to mention it is half the cost of many of those other portable batteries and has a great touchscreen power level indicator. It will also completely charge your father's phone in 1-2 hours (9000 mAh) so your dad can get back to watching his cat videos...I mean taking photos of the grandkids.
Price: $24.99

Gourmet Gift Baskets

Bacon. Do I have your attention now? I thought so. I personally read any sentence that begins and ends with bacon. You know that guy that you never know what to get for Father's Day? Yeah that one. Guess what, gift baskets aren't just for the ladies. I had the privilege of trying out two of the gift baskets from I immediately thought of guys I know who would love them. They have microbrew baskets, meat baskets, cigar and beer baskets, chocolate baskets, and more. So where does bacon come in? I'm glad you asked. They even have popcorn tins with flavors like bacon, wings, buffalo, and loaded baked potato. Did I mention bacon? Go ahead and order now.
Price: $19.99-$399.99

Logitech Bemo Social Video Camera
Logitech Bemo
Why not just capture video with your phone? Well, anyone with kids knows the reason why you can't have nice things. You give your kids a camera to hold and they drop it in dirt, cover it with an impenetrable layer of something sticky, or spill your coffee all over it. This video camera is rugged enough to withstand everyday accidents, from kids and parents, plus is simple enough for anyone in the family to use. It connects to an app on your iPhone through bluetooth. The great thing is how is it is to shoot a video, trim it down, add a filter, music, a title, and share it on social media. I did it all in about 2 minutes my first time using the Bemo. It is also portable enough to carry in your pocket when your husband wants to start filming in a matter of seconds before the kids move on to something else.
Price: $129.99

Urban Accents Spice Blends
Urban Accents Spice Blends
If your dad loves to cook but doesn't love trying to pick out the right seasoning or rub, get him a gift pack from Urban Accents. You will immediately move into first position for child of the year. I have been using these spice blends consistently for about a year and I find that all my other spices suffer from loneliness because of lack of use. The great thing is the suggestions on each bottle for when and how to use them. It's like a spice blend guide for dummies. You know how some dads think they are pros at seasoning food, but they are the only people in the family who have that opinion? These are a great start in helping your dad become the cook he already thinks he is in his own head.
Price: $25.95-$150.00

Reliable Pronto Steam Cleaner
Pronto Reliable Steam Cleaner
How fun would it be to get a steam cleaner as a gift, right? I thought the same thing at first. Check this out though. You know how your dad can never get all the gunk off his grill? Is your dad a neat freak about his car? This can clean the BBQ and the gunk off the wheel wells. I have come to the conclusion that the way this works is that they mix black magic, and the tears of a unicorn, in with the water you fill it with. It's the only explanation that makes sense. I steamed the wrinkles out of my shirt. While it was hanging up. I love this thing now. It's the Father's Day gift that your dad never knew he needed.
Price: $99.99

Omaha Steaks
Omaha Steaks
Meat and Father's Day. Just say it a few times. It rolls off the tongue perfectly. It's almost as if you can't have Father's Day without a good piece of meat. Unless you are vegetarian. Then, well, I guess you can eat for the mashed potatoes and let the rest of us gorge ourselves on delicious meat candy. I was skeptical when my wife first ordered from Omaha Steaks. However, you can get some excellent deals and meat that works for any occasion. Mention these two things to your dad and he might just cry because he is so proud of you. Or he may grill you a steak instead. Either way is a win.
Price: Varies based on package you order
