10 Sure Fire Father's Day Gifts (Books and More)

Here is our Father's Day gift philosophy : Don't get him a tie. Don't get him socks. Get him something he would never get for himself that once he has it, he'll wonder how he ever lived without it. Here are 10 items we sell that we think fit that description :

For the Carnivore : Steak Saws (set of 4)
Give him the joy of his workshop right at the dinner table.

For the Adventurer : Demon Fish by Juliet Eilperin 
An amazing look at sharks around the world.

For the Grill- Master : Blink Ketchup and Mustard
Why do they close their eyes when you pour these condiments? Is it pleasure? Is it pain? Are they just tired? Having a hot-dog just got philosophical.


For the Inner Geek : The Geek Dad's Guide to Weekend Fun by Ken Denmead
Is he the kind of guy who would enjoy making his own "Mini-Me" out of a lego action figure? Of course he is.

For the Lodge-Man : Moosehead Mobile Device Stand
His smart-phone has never looked classier.


For the Cowboy : The Sisters Brothers by Patrick deWitt
Did he get just a little too into the movie True Grit? This hilarious, violent and action packed homage to the classic western should get him back in the saddle.

For the Outdoors-Man Stuck at Work : Red Snapper Screen Cleaner
His monitor will never look better.

For the Beer Lover : Craft Beers of the Pacific Northwest by Lisa M Morrison
Simple - If he drinks beer, he needs this book.

 For the Envious of His Kids Star Wars Toys : Lego Yoda Alarm Clock
Like it he will.



For the Sports Junkie : Those Guys Have All the Fun by James Andrew Miller
All the ESPN he can handle.

All on our shelves now!

  1. I think cost never comes in among the happiness of you and your loved ones. The list of gifts are bit pricy but I think the best gift for Father on his day will be a hand written note that shows how much you love and care for him.
