Father's day gift giving made easy
(ARA)- Finding the perfect Father's Day gift can be a challenge. After all, how many neckties or personalized golf balls does one guy need? Luckily, the Internet brings all types of exotic gifts right to your computer (and dad's door). Here's a look at some of the standout gifts we think any dad would love to receive.
A remote for your remote- Does your dad have a reputation for misplacing things? Whether it's his eye glasses, the remote or the car keys, the Now You Can Find It! Ultra 8 Wireless RF means dad will instantly be able to track down these and other lost items. This universal paging system makes it easy to instantly locate those items that always seem to "walk away." Find it at gifts.com.
Never be intimidated by the sommelier- Whether dad is a knowledgeable pro or just learning about wine, the Wine Master will be a hit. This electronic pocket guide, available on redenvelope.com, was created in partnership with Wine Enthusiast Magazine to provide instant access to more than 10,000 wine ratings and reviews. It includes a wine glossary and tasting terms, complementary food and wine pairings, wine basics for the novice, best buys, editor's picks and cellar buys. Its compact size makes it easy to take to the store or restaurant.
Be a man of the world- "Our Write-On Map Mural is great for political junkies, world travelers and for presentations," says Ross Silverberg of Hammacher Schlemmer (hammacher.com). Originally published under the direction of the U.S. Department of Defense and the CIA, this is the world's largest, accurately detailed, eight-color wall mural of the world, covering nearly 9 by 13 feet of wall space. Capitals, countries, major cities, up-to-date political boundaries, time zones, shipping lanes, nautical miles, ocean depths, elevations and more are all clearly indicated at a scale of 160 miles to the inch. The laminated surface makes it possible to write on the map time and again with a dry-erase marker (one included). "This map is equally at home in a den, a home office or in the executive suite," says Silverberg. Printed on heavy 80-pound paper stock, the mural is 8 separate panels that can be hung as one piece or individually. Mounting is easy; simple step-by-step instructions and adhesive for hanging are included.
Put your poker face on- Poker is all the rage these days. Celebrities play on television; with the Authentic Poker Dealer Pack (also at hammacher.com), dad can play like the pros. The sturdy aluminum felt-lined case contains 500 metal-weighted chips (150 white, 150 blue, 100 red, 50 green, and 50 black), two decks of professional coated playing cards, and marker buttons for blinds and dealer.
How about a Lamborghini?- Oops, just kidding. After all, how many people have that in the budget? But if dad has always wanted an exotic car, give him the next best thing-let him drive the car of his dreams for a day. Most major cities have a car rental agency that specializes in expensive cars. For example, Beverly Hills Rent-a-Car offers a Porsche Boxster for $189 a day or a Ferrari F355 for a mere $999 for a day. If dad's a muscle car kind of guy, Dream Car Rentals in Las Vegas has a 1968 Camaro SS Convertible for $325 a day.
With a little creativity and some time in front of your computer, the perfect Father's Day gift is just a click away.
