Father's Day Gift Guide

Here are some ideas of what to buy for Dad



    Father's Day is this Sunday and statistics show more than half of consumers, still haven't bought a gift.

    Is Dad "high tech?"

    NBC 7 got a sneak peek at Cube 7, which says it will be the first company offering Free Video Email.  Whether it's for Father's Day or any other holiday, video email is now making it easier to send well wishes.  It's also ideal for working Dads (and Moms) since  it makes face to face communication possible, with just the click of a button.  Find out more about how to get Free Video email by visiting their website.
    And here are more ideas for Dad, courtesy of Lifestyle Expert, Laurie Graham.

    Graham said Dad will thank you for Collective Cables.  They are USB cables that won’t get lost or mixed up with anyone else’s cords!  The cords work with your iPhone, Android, GoPro or Kindle...it’s the Father’s Day gift he will use every day!  They come in dozens of colors and designs and cost $17.95.
    Is Dad always looking for a place to put his smart phone?  Now there’s a company called I/O Denim.  It has created premium jeans that feature a dedicated smartphone pocket.  The pocket is on the left-hand side of the jeans, in between the knee and the hip along the seam. It is big enough to handle any of the iPhones with a slim case and also most of the Android devices.
    CableKeeps secure your USB docking cable to Apple power adapters so cable & charger stay together. The intuitive design will keep your cables tangle free when shoved in a bag or pocket and can shorten and organize when plugged into the wall. It’s priced at $16. 
    Does Dad need more ties? To help diversify their outfits, one entrepreneur decided to help guys out with a “Netflix-style service for neckties and menswear accessories”.  Tie Society follows pretty much the same distribution model as Netflix, just with men’s ties instead of DVD’s. With Tie Society, members pay a fee for the month, choose a tie and  when they’re done, just mail it back and Tie Society will send the  next tie in their queue. A membership starts at $10.95/month.
     Swiss Stays Collar Stay are the world’s first patented, adjustable collar stay. Shirt collars come in over twenty-four sizes, because Swiss Stays can be adjusted to fit any collar they ensure firm shirt collars for men to look their very best. A three-pack starts at $8.
    The Pocket Monkey is the most innovative utility tool to hit the market since the Swiss army knife. Weighing only one ounce, and TSA-compliant, it fits easily into a credit card slot in a wallet, purse or pocket. This durable and versatile 12-in-1 tool costs $14.95 and is constructed of hardened stainless steel. It also serves a variety of everyday and specialty functions.
