Since I spend an extraordinary amount of time on the web, Favorite Fridays is something I’ve been longing to do and share with my readers. I will try to pick a theme for every Friday with miscellaneous things that rock my socks. Also if the item can be purchased, the picture will link to the website, if you happen to be curious!
This weeks Theme: Father’s Day – And yes I acknowledge the fact this is cutting it close to Father’s Day 2011 but hey, there’s always next year!
1. Smartbox.com Adventure
For the a unique gift, try Smartbox.com where you can buy an “experience” for Dads who don’t like the typical tie or mug. You buy a package like “Adventure” or “Adrenaline” and Dad gets to choose from over 25 different adrenaline rushing activities across California like motorcycling, kayaking or ATVing. They also have romantic getaway packages and family friendly ones to choose from. Although the package doesn’t cover getting to the destination, it’s a fun idea for thrill seeking Dads.
2. ThinkGeek – Floppy Disk Sticky Note
When I found these online, I ALMOST bought these for my Dad. He was/and still is a complete computer geek (Love you dad!) and I remember having a ton of floppy disks laying around the house before CD-Rs and USBs. How much fun are these post it notes? (Have I mentioned my obsession with post it notes?)
3. Gift.com Portable Stadium Sippin Seat
For the Dads who love to party, comes the Portable Stadium Sippin Seat. I don’t know how this works if you weigh more than 90 lbs, because I would imagine sitting on booze could result in some interesting mishaps but I love the idea behind it. There are more than a few Dads I know that would love this!
4. Fred & Friends – Tank Up Coffee Cup
For the avid coffee drinker Dads. It’s got a manly name like “Tank Up” and it has a function besides being a normal coffee cup. Win.
5. Gifts.com – NFL Toaster
2 ways to a sports-oriented man’s heart – food and his favorite NFL team. I love that this exists because only in America would we want our toast imprinted with a sports logo. I mean obviously an NFL loving Dad would prefer tickets to a game but hard core fans could not live without this toaster.
Have a Fabulous Friday and Happy Father’s Day to all the wonderful Dads out there!
