Father's Day gifts that aren't lame

Dad has excellent taste. He did, after all, have a hand in making us. But, we admit, shopping for the old man can be tricky. While you don’t want to repeat gift him with a boring striped tie (or some other equally cliché gift) like you did last Father’s Day, you didn’t inherit his innate ability to navigate the men’s department.
