8 Cool Gifts for a Cool Dad

8 Cool Gifts for a Cool Dad

I’m married to a Cool Dad, but this Cool Dad is REALLY hard to buy for. I asked my hubby to help me out and hopefully help some of you out with a list of 8 Cool Gifts for  a Cool Dad. Here is what he came up with. Enjoy!

For The Tech Dad

1. Northface E-Tip Glove (Where to buy: Nordstom.com, Amazon.com)

With these gloves, your Cool Dad can text you the play-by-play action at your kid’s game without taking off his gloves.

For The Jock Dad

2. Nike+ Fuel Band (Where to buy: Nike.com, Amazon.com)

Not only is Nike+ FuelBand a watch, but it also tracks running, walking, dancing, basketball and dozens of everyday activities while measuring calories burned, steps taken and more. Have your Cool Dad sync with the Nike+ FuelBand app so he can see his activity history, stay motivated and connect with other Cool Dads.

For The Kid-at-Heart Dad

3. Huffy Green Machine (Where to buy: Target.com, Amazon.com)

Who’s that large kid barreling down the cul-de-sac on the Green Machine? It must be the Coolest Dad on Earth!

For The Green Dad

4. Nest Learning Thermostat (Where to buy: Nest.com, Amazon.com)

Most famlies leave the house at one temperature and forget to change it. Nest learns your schedule, programs itself and can be controlled from your phone. Teach it well and Nest can lower your heating and cooling bills up to 20%. We all know that Cool Dads love to save money.

For The Baker Dad

5. Band of Outsiders Cookie Cutter Set (Where to buy: Target.com, Amazon.com)

Only the Coolest Dads on the block use these cookie cutters and stampers. Watch out, the PTA will be knocking down your door when they see these!

For The Coffee Addict Dad

6. Bialetti Mini Express Stovetop Expresso Maker (Where to buy: ExpressoZone.com, Amazon)

What is better than an espresso maker, but a teeny-tiny espresso maker. The Bialetti Mini Express is a unique stove top espresso maker that brews directly into two espresso cups–one for your Cool Dad and one for you.

 For The Giving Dad

7. One World Futbol (Where to buy: OneWorldFutbol.com)

This is a great cause that any Cool Dad would be proud to be a part of. The One World Futbol is:

Virtually-Indestructible. Unlike any inflatable ball on the market, the One World Futbol never needs a pump and never goes flat, even if punctured. The ball is made using state-of-the-art technology that requires no stitching and is designed to have the same rebound characteristics as a traditional soccer ball. It’s the same size and weight as a standard soccer ball, but it can also be used for netball, volleyball, and many other games.

All-terrain. The One World Futbol is ideal for any playing surface, not just grass or regulation soccer fields: indoors, on concrete, on black top, on grass, on a beach, on dirt, or even on a rocky field. The ball can withstand the harshest conditions without deflating.

Sustainability. The ultra-durability of the One World Futbol also helps meet a significant environmental challenge by eliminating the waste of discarded, punctured soccer balls. In Africa alone, 20 million deflated balls make their way into trash heaps every year.

For every One World Futbol you buy through the “Buy One, Give One” program, they give a second ball to children and youth in need through organizations working in disadvantaged communities such as refugee camps, war zones, disaster area and inner cities.

 For The Rocker Dad

8. Ticket Stub Diary (Where to buy: UncommonGoods.com, Amazon.com)

With this Ticket Stub Diary your Cool Dad can preserve his precious memories from his Smashing Pumpkins and R.E.M. concerts and show the kids that he was Cool at one point.
