This is our archived 2007 Father’s Day Gift Guide:
Men are ultimately very simple in terms of their wants and needs…but we ladies feel compelled to shop for them, anyway. I’ve been pumping Super Dad for ideas and here are some of Mamanista’s picks for Father’s Day gifts for the Family Guy, the Father Who Brings Home the Bacon, the Father Who Cooks the Bacon, the Tailgating Dad, the Sharp-Dressed Dad, the Dad who Plays Games, the Daddy-To-Be, the Dad Who Deserves some Rest and Relaxation, the Dad Who is a Good Sport, and more!
|For the Family Guy: Dads love to show off the family, but they also like a neat desk. It will be easy to stay organized and brag (complete with a soundtrack) with an EDGE Tech 5.6 in Digital Picture Frame with MP3 Player ($125.45) or try the MediaStreet 7-Inch Pure eMotion Digital Photo Frame (MS411) ($129.95).For a picture Dad can take everywhere, get him a Digital Photo Key Chain ($50), or a Pewter Photo Key Ring ($19.99) with a picture of his adorable family–including you!
Put together some of Dad’s favorite photographs in a scrapbook. If you aren’t a scrapbooker, you can use Shutterfly to create a Pre-Made Baby Scrapbook ($49.99) or a Faux Leather Brag Book ($12).

|For the Father Who Makes the Bacon: Dad will always be ready for a cookout with the BBQ Apron Tote ($25 — on sale!). This apron wraps up all his BBQ tools in a convenient carry tote.Don’t forget to let Dad personalize his handiwork with a Barbecue Branding Iron ($39.95).
Dads who really love to cook will enjoy a knife set, sharpener, or another kitchen gadget: Shop Father’s Day at CHEFS Catalog.
|For the Tailgating Dad: Dad will be the envy of his fellow sports fans or beach goers in the Discovery Reclining UV Canopy Chair ($29.95).Or, if Dad likes to really sack out, try the Discovery Deluxe Portable Hammock ($99.95).Now all Dad needs is some cool tunes and drinks…and he can have both with the Rockin’, Rollin’ Radio Cooler ($39.99).|
|For the Sharp-Dressed Dad:
Consider a traditional gift with a twist. Uncommon Goods has ties, cuff links, and wallets that utilize unusual materials and unique designs. Dad will look really manly when he pulls out a Duct Tape Wallet ($20) or one made from woven steel. With a pair of Level Cufflinks ($80), Dad will always be on balance, even after a few beers or martinis; or perhaps he’d prefer cufflinks with baseballs, turntable adapters, or watchworks? Uncommon Goods has you covered. Checkout these and other Gifts For Him at Uncommon Goods.If Dad likes to stay spiffy and clean, get him an Engraved, Personalized Leather manicure kit/shoe shine kit ($30.59).Try Uncommon Goods Coupon Code: COMEAGAIN for 10% off (we haven’t tested this one)
|For the Dad Who Plays Games:
Now that Dad finds himself spending more time at home, encourage him to have a guys night in. Or play games together as a family–beats the television any day. To host the perfect game night, get a gaming table and a Poker Table Top Game ($39.99).Place your tasty beverages on these Poker Cards Glass Coasters (set of 6) ($10.95) and use these Poker Dishes ($18.95) in the shape of a club, heart, diamond, and spade for chips and salsa.
|For the Dad Who Deserves a Treat:
Bake him something special, like my favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe (Beth’s Chocolate Chip Cookies–soft, chewy, and tasty, the best!). Bonus points if you bake enough for him to bring into work on Monday. Bake an extra couple of dozen, put them in a nice tin (possibly decorated by the kids), and then he gets yummy baked goods AND gets to be a hero at work. If you aren’t a cooking cutie, consider buying him baked treats at David’s Cookies, like the Cookie of the Month Club (varies in price).Mama-To-Be raves about Dale and Thomas Popcorn, a celebrity favorite…and they have some great new flavors perfect for Father’s Day, like Buffalo Dale’s Hot Wing, Popuccino, and Country Smokehouse Cheddar.Click here for a coupon for $10 off a $60+ order from Dale and Thomas Popcorn!
|For the Daddy To Be: Get the future dad ready for his new role with a Daddy Bag by Diaper Dude, such as this Diaper Dude Camouflage Bag with Dragon ($54.95), and the The Baby Owner’s Manual ($10.85 — a Super Dad favorite)…or get both plus an “instructional kid t-shirt” in a Dad To Be Set ($84) from Uncommon Goods.|
|For the Dad Who Needs Some Rest and Relaxation:
He’ll have no trouble finding his clubs with this Golf Organizer ($79.99).Then, help Dad work out the kinks with great items at The Sharper Image’s Massage & Relaxation store and Great Gifts for Dad from Relax the Back.
