Fabulous Friday: Father’s Day Gift Guide

Posted by: Josh

If your dad threatened to hang himself with any tie he’s given this Father’s Day, you may be in the market for something a little more thoughtful. Here are some gift ideas for that weird guy sitting on the couch! These are decidedly skewed toward my own end of the dad spectrum (i.e. youngish & nerdy), but if that doesn’t fit your needs, at least we’ll get your brain working. Tip: dads like things that they like. What? Yes. What? Okay. Here we go!

Comics Dad – Jimmy Corrigan, The Smartest Kid on Earth$23 – By Chris Ware, the most beautiful & depressing graphic novel ever.

Photography Dad – GorillaPod , $20-90 – Little portable camera tri-pods.

Typography Dad – Ampersandwich Tee, $23 – Typography t-shirt!

Reading Dad – Amazon Kindle, $114 – My sister & sister-in-law gave me one of these for my birthday, and it’s pretty cool. Great for commuters (at least the public transit kind)!

Vegan Dad – Vegan Dress Shoes, $39+ – Delicious shoes made of tofu! Mmm, comfortable!

Sporty Dad – Klipsch Earbuds, $97 – Put these in your head while you’re jogging!

Toy-Loving Dad – Parrot AR.Drone, $300 – Its a flying helicopter you control with your iPhone. Whaaa?

Cycling Dad – Chamois BUTT’r, $12 – Grease up your bottom, cause, um, things get burny after a while.

Coffee Snob Dad – Hario v60 Cone, $19 – For the true coffee engineer. Hat tip to @mic_dee for this recommendation!

DVD Dad – RipIt, $25 – Okay, also need to be a Mac dad. DVD ripping software, for putting all your DVDs on your computer.

And if all else fails, and the dad you’re shopping for is your husband, you know what to do. YOU KNOW. Wink. Nudge. Nudge. Toot. Cough.

Happy Father’s Day!

Happy Father’s Day Baby! Thanks for taking care of us, always doing the grocery shopping, giving Eleanor her baths, putting her to bed, and taking her to the park every weekend (no wonder she likes you so much better than me)! Also we’re big fans of your sassy attitude! We love you!

Father’s Day 2009

We had a pretty low-key Father’s Day this year. In the morning, Eleanor gave Josh his gift–a couple pairs of socks, one of which was argyle, of course. Josh is known for his argyle socks. He has quite a collection. After Josh had opened his gift, Eleanor demanded that he give her the gift bag so that she could carry it around like a purse. We finished the day with our second annual Father’ Day photo shoot.

Eleanor decided the photo shoot should be over so she grabbed a big handful of mulch from the planter.

And where else would you put mulch but in your hair and mouth?

And here’s what we were up to last year on Josh’s first Father’s Day.
