Father’s Day Gift Suggestions

Fathers day photo

When it comes to Father’s Day, we’re not a go all out kind of family. It’s really a day for CycleGuy and BabyGirl to do something special together. But I know that it’s important to have something for dad to open.

Car Wash KitPut together a Car Wash Kit and include a few homemade coupons for a free car wash in the driveway. This could be a great bonding time for the kids and dad!

BBQ Tools imageBBQ Tools – A quality set of BBQ tools can make grilling much nicer. We grill all year, so when I was looking for a quality set I knew what I wanted. They may looks nice, but the real measure of BBQ tools is how they perform day in and day out.

Sports equipment – Whether the dad in your life could spend all day out on the green, loves the batting cages, or could ride his bike for hours, some new athletic gear could be just the thing for active fathers.

Sports apparel –  Every dad loves to root for “his” team, and with some new team specific garments, he can really get into the spirit of the game!  Tickets to a game in your area would go great with this gift as well.

New wallet – Treat the dad in your life to an awesome wallet. This one isn’t expensive but it is so cool. Called The Big Skinny because it is amazingly thin, you’ll feel good knowing he’ll be more comfortable carrying his wallet. CycleGuy has had a few of these over the years and he swears by them!

Home Entertainment – Gather some of the best new DVDs together, such as American Dad, Street Kings 2, and of course, Big Momma’s House; Like Father Like Son, and combine them all together along with some popcorn to create a fun package for a family movie night on your couch

The May 25, 1977 theatrical debut of Star Wars – on a scant 32 screens across America – was destined to change the face of cinema forever. An instant classic and an unparalleled box office success, the rousing “space opera” was equal parts fairy tale, western, 1930s serial and special effects extravaganza, with roots in mythologies from cultures around the world. From the mind of visionary writer/director George Lucas, the epic space fantasy introduced the mystical Force into the cultural vocabulary, as well as iconic characters such as evil Darth Vader, idealistic Luke Skywalker, feisty Princess Leia, lovable scoundrel Han Solo and wise Obi-Wan Kenobi. Since its 1977 debut, Star Wars has continued to grow, its lush narrative expanding from modest beginnings into an epic, six-film Saga chronicling the fall and redemption of The Chosen One, Anakin Skywalker.
