Great Gifts for Dad!

Whether the Dad in your life is a sports lover, an outdoorsman, wild about technology or loves a good movie, we found Father’s Day gifts ranging from the newest and coolest to tried and truest activities you can do together. After all, some of the most lasting gifts are making memories with the ones you love!

The Perfect Father’s Day

Forget the golf shirt and take your dad to the IMI Motorsports Complex in Dacono. Just six miles due east of Colliers Hill in Erie you can rent Honda karts that will go up to 90 miles per hour! Okay there are also karts that go 20 to 40 miles per hour, too, if that makes the hair stand up on your neck. Helmets, driving suits, neck collars and gloves are all provided, and you can spend the day zipping around the track and pay by the lap or by the hour!

Also in Dacono (they really know how to have fun there, right?) is Colorado’s premier – so they say – paintball field. Why not challenge dad to an unforgettable (and exhilarating) afternoon at the Blitz Paintball field with a two-story castle and seven playing fields this weekend? Watch this video to see just how much fun you can have on Father’s Day stalking and painting your dad!

Gifts for the Geeky Dad

Dads who love techie-type gadgets will love their own DJI Spark Portable Mini Drone. Even if he hasn’t been itching for one, imagine the fun he’ll have capturing aerial photos and videos. Controlled by his phone, or even through HAND GESTURES! – this entry-level drone is more than a toy but more affordable than the commercial varieties.

Or how about an Olloclip lens for an iPhone, a Grippy Pad to hold a smart phone on a vertical surface, even a Lav Nav Motion-Activated Toilet Night Light. Who wouldn’t love THAT, right? 

And if he loves watching a little TV to unwind at the end of a long, hard day, the RIF6 Cube Pico Projector can stream video from any HDMI-compatible device onto a wall in a huge 120-inch display. It works indoors or out, comes with a flexible mini tripod, plus a remote control, charger and USB, HDMI and MHL connectors. Oh, and did we mention it fits in the palm of your hand?

For the Manliest Men

Have you seen these Man Crates? It’s like a gift basket for guys with every possible combination of stuff in them – from cooking, drinking and grilling gifts, to project kits like knife-making, pipe-carving and the New Dad’s Tactical Crate featuring ear plugs, caffeine-infused Perky Jerky, a mustache pacifier and Baby Owner’s Manual. If you don’t know what to get the dad in your life, opt for the Smash and Grab – a concrete brick and hammer that contains a gift card! 

And lastly, because we all want one of these, the Hamilton Beach Breakfast Sandwich Maker. What could be easier? Pop in the English muffin, an egg and whatever else makes your heart and belly happy and push down. And because it has over 2,000 positive reviews on Amazon and a 4.6 rating, we think it’s a great get for the guy who likes a hot breakfast!
