Give them something to smile about

1. Fishing Rod with underwater Camera

Here... fishy, fishy, fishy... Find the fish and see exactly what they are up to.

This fishing rod is equipped with an underwater video camera which allows you to see just exactly where those fish are or just to be able to see what is going on under the water. The video camera transmits live footage to your LCD screen which is located directly on the fishing rod.

2. Digital Camera Mask

Imagine swimming and taking video footage or pictures all HANDS FREE.

Discover the beauty of all the living organisms underwater you see.

This swim mask comes equipped with an integrated waterproof digital-video camera. The camera will take photos at 5 mega pixels and has a memory card slot to store the photos or video footage. Swim at a depth of 15 feet and capture all the under water beauty.

3. Solar Lantern

Harness the power of the sun and light your way.

The Energizer solar light is the most versatile light available. The power solutions on this lantern include solar, battery, car adapters and crank. The solar panel will give enough energy for 2 1/2 to 3 hours of light. Ideal for camping, power outages, emergency lighting or as a handy bright light for a job.

4. Popa... The BIG red button for iphone

So just exactly... What is Popa?

A textured grip and a big red button with an app which attaches to your iphone 4 or 4S. Popa makes taking pictures a breeze all with a cool retro feel. Never miss a great shot again, Simply push POPA on your iphone and the free app starts up and is ready taking some great shots.

5. Monty Python Box Set

Monty Python is one of the most classic and silliest comedian.

Give Dad something to laugh about with this three pack set of some of the funniest Monty Python movies.


Remember ... The Lumberjack Song, The Dead Parrot Sketch, The Dirty Fork, and the World Funniest Joke, well this is included in "AND NOW FOR SOMETHING COMPLETELY DIFFERENT".

The second movie and in my opinion is the BEST is "MONTY PYTHON AND THE HOLY GRAIL." In search of the Holy Grail takes you on a hilarious journey. Who could forget the Killer Rabbit or the Black Knight.

The final movie is "THE ADVENTURES OF BARON MUNCHAUSEN" which continues with insanely funny moments which are sure to keep Dad laughing in his seat.

6. The Art of Shaving

In Search of the perfect shave?

This kit includes The 4 Elements of a Perfect Shave. There is nothing sweeter than a close shave.

This unscented kit is geared to giving a man the best shave he has ever experienced. Included in the Art of Shaving Kit is the Pre-Shave Oil, Shaving Cream, After Shave Balm and the After Shave Brush. Heavenly components to create that fabulous shave he has been seeking.


Nothing beats Buckyballs for a bit of FUN.

Once you get these little balls in your hands, they are extremely difficult to put down. Squash them all together and form a long strand and then break them apart with your fingers. Beware these little magnetic balls are highly addictive. 216 balls with powerful Rare Earth magnets. Make a bracelet or a sculpture... Hey , remember the world is your oyster.

Buckyballs are a great item to have around, keep them on your desk and use them as a stress reliever.

One thing is for sure, Buckyballs are pure FUN!

8. Dead On 18-Inch Annihilator Utility and Wrecking Bar

This bad boy is your ticket to get the job done.

The Demolition hammer can be used as a general hammer or for breaking something down. The Nail ripper makes removing those difficult nails easy to remove. And the Demolition axe will rip right though anything. And there is even a bottle opening just in case you get thirsty. This is the tool to replace many tools and the one you will reach for over and over again.

So whether it is carpentry work or Zombie killing this is the only tool you will need.

9. Logitech Harmony One Universal Remote with Color Touchscreen

Reduce the remote control clutter and use one remote to control all your devices.

This universal remote will do just that and so much more. With just a click of a button, it will turn on the components you need to watch anything you want and in the proper order. Lets say you want to watch Netflix, just push a single button on the Harmony remote and your devices will turn on and Netflix will be waiting for your next command.

The programing of the Harmony Universal Remote is simple and is done right on your computer. Fully color screen and rechargeable batteries. Isn't it time you reduce the coffee table clutter and start channel surfing.

10. Sonos Play:3 Wireless Music Player With 3 Integrated Speakers

Music- Music - Lovely Music ... Stream it all and do it with NO WIRES....

The Sonos allow you to do just that. Listen to your itunes library, satellite radio or internet radio anywhere you want and be able to control it from any device which connects to the internet.

The sound quality of this 3 driver HiFi Speaker system is simply amazing and the ability to add more speakers to this system all without wires is absolutely beautiful. Moving speakers around is simple, just unplug and relocate, all you need is a power source. So what are you waiting for... Bring your music to the great outdoors and beyond and enjoy.

Are you still having difficulties finding that perfect gift for Dad?

Sometimes it is the most simple things which mean the most.

If your Dad is like mine, then he is a no nonsense type of guy who will appreciate something a bit more useful like a tool or household item. However if your Dad is more like my husband then he would enjoy a more fun gift which he would never have purchased but would enjoy having.

Maybe all he needs is a special day with you. Just spending some time hanging out or doing whatever could be the greatest gift of all. So plan that special day with your dad and have fun.

I hope I made your life a bit easier and less stressful in selecting something for that influential man in your life. Let me know what you think about these fun gifts for Dad or if you have any you would like to share.

I have so many favorites on this list, but I have definitely found the perfect gift for my Dad and my Husband and I hope you do too!

Have and great day and thanks for visiting!
