A (slightly) less cliche father’s day gift guide (for geeks)

We’re linking up with Mama Kat’s Writer’s Workshop this week with the prompt:

4. Create a Father’s Day gift guide.

Let’s be honest: All Father’s Day gift guides are basically the same. It’s not our fault – guys are really pretty simple creatures. They don’t want for much and they tend to buy the things they want before we get a chance to splurge on them (at least mine does) – but we can do better than your basic Father’s Day gifts, right? This year for Father’s Day…

Don’t just get him a coffee mug, get him:

A Superhero Dad Mug - $19.99 | ThinkGeek.com

Don’t just get him another grill set, get him:

Don’t just get him a cell phone charger, get him:

Don’t just get him a tie, get him:

Don’t just get him a watch, get him:

Yes, all the gifts on my “guide” are from ThinkGeek.com. No, this is not a sponsored post. My reasons for being so exclusive here are 1) I’m too lazy to go to a bunch of websites looking for stuff and 2) ThinkGeek.com is such a one stop shop for all things geek. If you are shopping for a Geeky Dad, you really don’t need to look any further. 3) This is honestly where I get almost all of the gifts for the geeks in my life. 4) I feel like there should be a fourth thing, but there isn’t.

What are you getting your dad / husband / grandpa for father’s day this year?

I promise I won’t tell.

  1. I particularly love the idea of the tactical DAD apron….I think it will really go well with my husband! Stopping by from Mama Kat’s.
