Dear old Dad deserves a totally
terrific token of your appreciation this Father’s Day, and we’re
here to help. We scoured the ‘net for some truly perfect prezzies
sure to get a grin (and a hug) out of our favorite guy ever. Read on,
If he’s gaga for gadgets…
When parents discovered smartphones,
they discovered the joy of cell phone games. Let Dad turn his iPhone
into an arcade classic with this so-cool gizmo that lets ya play
pinball. When is it my turn?
If he’s all about sports…
Yankee lovers, Red Sox die-hards,
football fanatics and b-ball addicts alike will adore this new
hardcover classic that brings the fans inside ESPN.

the World of ESPN, $15, amazon.com
If you call him the “Grill
Help Dad spice up your next meal with a
sampler of different spice rubs. He’ll love experimenting with
fresh flavor combos, and you’ll get to be the guinea pig. Yum!
If he’s big into movies…
OK, this gift might have a li’l
something for us in it, too, but dad will get a kick out of the
remake of True Grit. He can enjoy Jeff Bridges stellar
performance, and we’ll watch our girl Hailee give her
Oscar-nominated performance. Everybody wins, right?
If he’s a total Mr. Fix It…
Whether he’s restoring a classic car
or oiling that squeaky screen door, we love the idea of supporting
dad in his hobbies. And hey, if he wants to use it while making
another bookshelf for all of our novels, so be it.
If you’re teaming up with yours
Chip in and grab something that you can
do together. Maybe you’ll treat Dad to tickets to a local baseball
game or a movie he’s dying to see. Maybe you’ll buy him that box
CD set he’s been eyeing. Or maybe you’ll grab a video game. Who
doesn’t love Mario Bros.?
