TO KEEP DAD Entertained
Since most dads are spending a lot more time at home, give him something to help pass the time, stay entertained (and even have some fun)! Whether he’s into books, music, movies or games, we’ve got products to fit the bill. The newest model of Kindle (now with a front light) will provide hours of reading enjoyment, while a Bluetooth speaker will allow him to take tunes anywhere. For a dad who’s into the classics, give him an updated record player (that also connects to Bluetooth) a striking set of playing cards, or a handsome cocktail shaker for mixing up his favorite drink. And for outdoor entertainment, try a smart-looking ladder toss game, a wood paddleball set or a projector to turn his backyard into his very own movie theater!

TO KEEP DAD Stylish & Comfy
Let’s face it: every dad wants to be comfy, but sometimes style is an afterthought. So why not give them a gift that’s not only comfy – it’s also stylish. A pair of felt slippers will help him start his day fashionably, while a grey t-shirt or patterned socks lets everyone know he’s one cool dad. For something a bit dressier that’s still super easy, get him a camel-colored polo (made of a soft moisture-wicking fabric to keep him dry) and a pair of drawstring linen shorts. And for easy accessories that he’ll love, go with fun blue sunglasses, a classic leather wallet or an aviator style watch.

TO KEEP DAD Feeling Handy
Even if your dad isn’t particularly handy, he probably still wants to be. So give him something to tackle home projects, get crafty and have plenty of ways to fix things. Give him some help with a ‘How To Fix Anything Book’, or a bright blue toolbox is a great way to help him get organized. (You can even fill it with a few other tools – like a laser tape measure, wooden multi-tool and silver carpenter’s pencil). A headlamp will come in handy whenever he needs hands-free light, and a knife sharpener is super useful in the kitchen. For a dad that’s a bit more crafty, go for a DIY leather journal kit.
