100 Father's Day Gifts

From Hip Timepieces to Amazing BBQ Accessories

— May 20, 2012 — Art & Design
There is still a lot of time left to go shopping for your old man, and these Father's Day gifts will help you pick out something he would actually like.

Not all dads are sports fans and beer drinkers who think the kitchen is a barbecue set. Everyone's dad is different, and there's a way to pick out the best gift for the man who's been there for you every step of the way.

He might appreciate something like an amphibious car, but these Father's Day gifts are less extravagant and easily affordable for the sons and daughters out there. There are a variety of iPad cases that are eco-friendly and structurally functional with manly designs. From coffee makers to barbecue sets, watches and more, this list is sure to help with the shopping before the big day arrives.
