Father's Day Gift IdeasFathers Day Gift Ideas

by Kerrie McLoughlin

It seems like shopping for Father’s Day gets harder every year. Doesn’t it seem like he either had everything already or he says there is nothing he wants? I sleuthed out 5 cool gifts that will make you and the kids a star this year. Check ‘em out!

1. JuiceBar® Multi-Device Pocket Solar Charger ($49.99) — Does Dad ever forget to charge his cell phone, and then it dies on him when he needs it? This handy little gadget solves that problem using indoor lighting or solar power (kinda James Bondy, don’t you think?)! It comes with a standard USB port so you can use your own charging cable. It’s also perfect for MP3 players and handheld games, so the whole family can borrow it.

2. “The Sanctuary” Power Charging Station and Desk Valet Combo (about $103) — At only 9” by 9”, this is like a little home for Dad’s devices, making it easy to keep everything (PDA, cell phone, MP3 player, keys, change, etc.) together. It has 12 built-in connections to make it work with over 1,500 different electronic devices. There’s also a USB connection. All this means getting Dad organized and keeping his stuff charged!

3. Cushioned 7-piece Hand Tools Set (starts at about $50) — It seems like my dad and husband are always working on car and home issues, and that’s where these tool sets (screwdrivers and nut drivers) come in. They have a cushion-grip for comfort and color-coded caps so Dad can find the right tool when he needs it. The cushion-grip also means the tool won’t be slipping out of Dad’s hands, causing him to cuss!

4. Pelican iPod® Micro Case (about $34-32) — No more cracked screens! Available in 7 colors, this case is perfect for the dad on-the-go. It’s crushproof (so the kids won’t break it) and watertight (ever drop a phone or iPod in the toilet or accidentally take it in the pool?) Hmmm, you might want to pick one up for yourself while you’re at it!

5. 02 Hurricane Canless Air System ($99.95) — One of these puppies is equal to 1,000 cans of that nasty, toxic canned air you get to clean your computer keyboards and other stuff, like vents, car dashboards, blinds, plants and more. I know this product, which uses no chemicals or freezing and is eco-friendly, would help my husband (who likes things clean) keep his boat spiffy and keep his truck sparkling. He can (no pun intended) also fill up his air mattress when he goes camping. I’m betting the kiddoes would have fun getting their hands on this, as well, and you might have a bonus clean house in no time while you sit around reading a book! Head to their website for the countless uses (nail polish dryer? Who is this present for, anyway?) and buy early for Father’s Day!

Kerrie McLoughlin’s husband would be very happy if his 5 kids and wife got him all 6 of these cool presents this year! Check them out at
