5 on Friday: Father's Day

Yeah, 5 on Friday is back! My Friday’s just haven’t felt completed lately.

I already celebrated Father’s Day with my day this year. We had such an awesome day starting with 18 holes of golf. Then we had lunch at a little sports bar with some 22 oz beers to cool off. After lunch, we played a game of pool which he was impressively good at. Then hit a bucket of balls and the driving range and topped it all off with a delicious ice cream cone. Not too bad for an old guy.

That was my gift to him since he’s the guy who has everything so it’s very difficult to buy him something other than what he always gets (books, golf shirts, etc…).

But I did come across some great ideas online:

1)    Magnetic Wristband. I think this is genius! When dad’s hanging up a picture or shelf or whatever, instead of having to hold nails or screws in his mouth or worry about dropping them, they stick right here to his wrist.

2) Trunk-It golf gear set. For the golfer, rather than throwing his shoes in the trunk or looking around for the sunscreen, he can keep it all organized in this trunk set.

3) Handy man BBQ grill set. You never know when day may have to suddenly fix something. With these tool/grill pieces he'll be ready for anything.

4) Nike dri-fit golf tee. My dad lives in these shirts. They are the perfect shirts for any activity. They wick up the moisture and keep you cool.

5) Watch. One can never have enough watches. Be it a leather, gold, or rubber watch, you can't go wrong with this gift. I love this Kenneth Cole watch from Nordstrom.com.

For dad's like mine, just spending the day together was great. Take him out fishing or even to see a movie. Just be sure to tell him you love him and that he's great.
