Take him out to lunch? Sure... but again, not the most original of ideas. Movies are a good idea... but unless it's a drafthouse, it's really not that special.
So what to get for Dad on this Father's Day? Well, here are 8 ideas...
Whether your dad's a fan of Rocky Balboa or just likes to think of himself as a tough guy, there's one gift that will make him want to step into the boxing ring every time he rolls out of bed or steps out of the shower.

They not only help relieve your stress, they make you smile, and they are functional as well.

These clocks are sure to surprise and please kids and adults alike.
Usually for me hot dogs have to be grilled outside on a hot day and have been cooked in a manner that creates a lot of extra crispy bits. For anyone who feels similarly about hot dogs, the Spiral Hot Dog Cutter by Wynder may be for you. This would make a great addition to Dad’s barbeque gadgets, perhaps even as a Father’s Day gift.
