(Editor: This article was originally published for Father's Day 2006)

Father's Day is the worst. Every year, it's the same lame presents. Come on, you know what I am talking about!

8 Great Gifts For Dads For Father's Day 2013 And Beyond

Father's Day.  When you get to my father's age, it becomes quite difficult to find something original as a gift.  Ties, while quite nice, are well-overplayed and no longer an option.  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...

Not Guilty... By Reason Of 'To-Go Ware Utensil Sets'

A danish, a yogurt, lunch... to go.  They all come with plastic knives, spoons, and forks. We accept them, but always with that little nudge in our minds and that pang of guilt.  I've actually been saving the plastic throw-aways, washing them, and re-using them.  No more guilt for me though - I just received a set of RePEaT To-Go Ware Utensils as a thank you gift, and I'm never going to set my teeth on another throw-away-and-destroy-the-earth plastic utensil again.

Feeling Hungry? Try These Video-Game Themed Bento Boxes

For the uninitiated, Bento is a type of lunch-time meal which consists of rice, meat, and vegetables, the whole array arranged together in a box. It's a fairly traditional dish, often prepared for school and work lunches; it's also available at most restaurants which serve Japanese food.

Add The Spiral Hot Dog Cutter To Dad's Barbeque Gadget Arsenal

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.
