Ultimate Father’s Day Gift Guide (for Cool Dads Only)

[ 0 ] May 31, 2011 |

No matter how old we get, our daddies watch over us, whether here with us on Earth or somewhere else. Dads are fabulous! This Father’s Day, we’re going to help you make him feel just that.

Welcome to our first-ever Fabulous Father’s Day Gift Guide. Forget the ties, PJs and all those other blah gifts. This guide is full of the hippest, coolest and most fabulous things on the internet. No messin’ around.

Cool Jewelry

There’s no better way to make sure Dad looks cool and feels hip than with a bracelet. Plus, every time he looks at his wrist, he’d be thinking of you and how fabulous you are.

One that immediately comes to mind is the Links of London Friendship Bracelet. It’s hand-woven and made of sterling silver. A grow-up take on bands we made as kids. Maybe wrap it up with a picture of you as a child. Gotta love it!

Get it at Links of London here. Price: $260.00.

Another awesome bracelet is the new David Yurman Spiritual Bead Bracelet. Talk about cool – it’s something Dad could pull off casually or at work. This year they have black onyx, tiger eye, red coral, river stone and so many other cool combinations – all in David Yurman style.

Get it at David Yurman here. Price: $395.00.

If these don’ t work, there is always another option: cufflinks! Bluefly has an amazing selection of the Funkiest, Coolest, Hippest and Fabulous Cufflinks I could find in one easy click. Fabulous brands such as Paul Smith, Gucci, Robert Graham and Prada all at least 20% off.

The Art of Shaving

Shaving is something all fathers have to do. Even the dad that has it all still needs to shave. I was introduced to the Art of Shaving, and I think it is the coolest thing ever, a throwback to the old school of getting a hot shave at the barber shop… but at your dad’s house!

The Art of Shaving Kit includes the “the 4 elements of the perfect shave”: Pre-Shave Oil, Shaving Cream, Badger Brush and After-Shave Balm. It comes in four fabulous aromas: unscented, lemon oil, lavender and sandalwood.

Get it at Nordstrom here. Price: $100.00.


It’s not just for teachers.

The iPad2 is probably the most amazing technological gadget ever – it has something for everyone. I personally cannot leave home without it; it is just that cool.

Whether he is an avid reader, golfer, gamer, etc., the app store has everything: Kindle, MLB and even Angry Birds will keep your father feeling fabulous. He can catch up on his email, surf the net, and even facetime with loved ones far away on the iPad2’s camera.

Get it at Apple Store here. Price: from $499.00.

He already has an iPad or iPad2? No prob – I have something that is perfect for him: the Hugo Boss “Galat” Leather iPad Case. The fabulous textured leather case fits both the iPad and iPad2. It converts into a horizontal or vertical stand and zips closed with a snap tab closure. You can even get it embossed at a local leather store to complete it – now that is fabulous.

Get it from Nordstrom here. Price: $145.00.

Another Apple favorite is the Apple TV – small and compact but packs a powerful punch in value and accessibility. I have had Apple TVs since they first came out. It was a mass storage device that enabled watching my iTunes library on my TV.

But the new Apple TV has come a long way from there. First of all, it streams wireless in your home – a big difference. And now it has Netflix built in plus many other goodies like sports scores and the iTunes movie store.

You can load it up with all your pictures and use Dad’s TV as a big photo frame. And he can rent movies through Apple, watch YouTube or stream Netflix on his TV. Fabulous! Take advantage of a free month trial at Netflix, too.

Get it at Apple Store here. Price: $99.00.
