Father’s Day Gift Ideas

If your dad is like mine, he’s nearly impossible to shop for.  I’ve seriously bought the man at least 15 navy blue and/or black Lacoste shirts and at this point, I was almost totally at a loss for ideas.  I decided to get a little creative this year and here’s what I’ve come up with that will work for MOST dads.

CaseMate Waddler iPhone Case: My Dad carried around a Zack Morris cell phone for years and I admit, he still hasn’t upgraded to a Blackberry or iPhone but if he did, I’d totally get him this hilarious case.  Who doesn’t love penguins, right?

Crate&Barrel French Fry Seasoning: I’ve inherited a lot from my father – my nose, my feet, my face shape, my freckles…and, of course, my love of all things potatoes.  We share a mutual love of french fries and I remember him making them in the oven growing up (and then the sweet potato version as we got older and more health-concscious).  These amazing seasonings would’ve been the icing on the cake, so to speak.

Violight UV Cell Phone Sanitizer: Pretty innovative, if you ask me.  We spend hours upon hours man-handling our cells every day and when I think about all the bacteria the screen receives, I kinda get nauseous.  My Dad has always been preachy about germs and keeping things clean so I know he’d totally get into this little gadget.

Jack Spade Bacon Money Clip: Money clips are “so money,” no pun intended.  And men love money…and bacon.

Contest Alert: Curve for Men

So who doesn’t love a good contest, right?  I remember falling in love with Curve when it first came out…when?  Was it the 90s?  Oh god, I just dated myself so bad.  But guess what…the hot new Curve campaign is now going full blast on social networks and they’re giving away a bottle of Curve for MEN fragrance and duffle bag to 10 winners in celebration of the sexiest scent in history.  Hello- free Father’s Day gift.  All you have to do is re-tweet and follow @ImaVixin by Tuesday, June 15th at 4PM EST.  Do it now!  Check out THIS LINK for to enter.

Redken For Men Father’s Day gift set

So when it comes to buying my Dad a Father’s Day gift, my motto is skip the ties, open the wine.  This is exactly why I literally laughed out loud when I found out about the Redken For Men Father’s Day gift set that includes essential haircare and styling products PLUS a handy wine corkscrew!  I’ll admit that I can’t actually get one of these awesome kits for my Dad because…he doesn’t actually have hair anymore, LOL, but for those of you who have Dad’s who do…you should do it up.  The kit is valued at $41 but is selling for only $25!  Quite a bargain indeed…your Dad would be proud.
