It’s that special time of year when we pause to celebrate our Fathers. Sometimes Dads can be tricky to buy for, so I did all the work for you. Here are some unique gift and gadget ideas that I shared on CBS Sports Radio, “The D.A. Show” to make your shopping easier. Be sure to follow me @katielinendoll for more innovative tech ideas!
starting at $20 with subscription model
Level up the fandom with an NFL razor from Gillette. Your team logo proudly displays on the handle and all 32 teams are available. Gillette on Demand also offers a subscription service for blade refills-- to keep the team spirit alive all year long.
The sun meets sound! These innovative sunglasses have a built-in Bluetooth speaker that connects with your smartphone to play your favorite tracks. Also, in a very James Bond-like twist, Dad can use sunglasses to also answer phone calls, as these glasses have a built-in microphone.
Since I got DA hooked on Duke Cannon’s lineup of patriotic products (from Smells Like Victory to Naval Supremacy), I knew that the News Anchor Hair Gift Set would be a must for Father’s Day. In words of Duke, “A man’s hair is his weapon and no hair commands more respect than that of a News Anchor.” Also check out their newly added special gift boxes – perfect for Father’s Day.
Perfect for the adventurous Dad on the go! This smartphone charger sets itself apart with the built-in micro USB and lightning cables. With this device Dad can get a charge anytime and anywhere without lugging or searching for extra cables. Sleek and powerful-- it comes in a variety of trendy colors.
With its new gear box, Yeti is expanding beyond coolers, while still keeping the same quality and functionality that their customers expect. Touted as “nearly indestructible,” the LoadOut GoBox is built to withstand the roughest conditions. It includes a divider, caddy and zipper pouch for ultra-versatile packing and organizing. Customers report using it for everything from a tackle box to a camping first aid kit.
starting at $19.99
Once Dad drinks out of a Yeti, he will never go back to a regular glass. In keeping with true Yeti style and quality their drinkware keeps cold drinks super cold and hot drinks super hot. Also has a hip look that will make Dad feel like a young adventurer. Choose from a variety of styles, sizes and colors.
$200 for razor and two blade refills
Why not give Dad the gift of some spa luxury with a tech centric heated razor? This razor heats up in less than a second and feels like a hot towel at the barber shop. With adjustable heat settings, a recharging battery and wireless magnetic stand – it will take Dad’s shaving routine into the 21st Century.
FORE! Since I showcased this speaker on the TODAY Show it’s remained a favorite gadget among my guy friends. It’s a golf club…no wait…it’s really a bluetooth speaker that easily blends with and travels alongside your clubs. With ten hours of battery life and a bonus of two USB ports for smartphone charging—it’s a gadget that will always keep Dad plugged in on the green.
starting at $19
Truth: Dads like the pampering of a good soap that doesn’t smell like flowers. Created by two brothers, who are also musicians, this line of products is made in the USA with natural ingredients and great manly scents. I’m a big fan of the Patriot Power wash soap which truly smells like the description, “Colony farmed fresh-cut tobacco blended with the smoke from a campfire on the 4th of July.”
Dad will be thrilled with his new D.A. shirt featuring a caricature of the one and only Damon Amendolara! P.S. - take advantage of the Father's Day sale!
