Sport Watches

Dad will love a sports watch. Sports watches are really cool, specially those that are multi-functional. The more functions, the better. Dad might not use all the functions but as long as they're there, everything's cool. Sports watches are not only for men who play sports, or run marathons, or go deep sea diving.

GPS Navigator

Dad hates asking for directions and you've heard Mom complain about him getting lost. Don't worry, Dad always finds his way but it just takes him longer to get there. So, a GPS navigator is a great gift for Dad. A GPS navigator can outsmart traffic and avoid delays for life with real-time information. It also calculates the fastest route possible based on time of day, saving you time, fuel, and money. To where? To anywhere Dad wants to go.. to gas stations, the nearest McD, to the closest ice-cream store, anywhere. Isn't that great? GPS navigators are usually expensive, but I found one that is under $100.

  • TomTom XL 335T 4.3-Inch Portable GPS Navigator - I like this navigation system because even though it doesn’t have all the bells and whistles, it at least has the Lifetime Traffic Updates included for FREE, which is one of the most important features in my opinion for a navigation system.
