Seiko for Father’s Day

Seiko for Father’s Day

My husband has never been one to pay close attention to accessorizing.  He is the type of guy why will stride purposefully into a store for his semiannual shopping trip, select the same brands and sizes of various wardrobe staples he has always purchased, and head to the cash register in under ten minutes.  I remember gasping in shock the first time I accompanied him, “Aren’t you going to try those on?” He wears the same … Read entire article »

HP Mini 210 Review: Perfect for Dads and Grads

HP Mini 210 Review: Perfect for Dads and Grads

If you’re going places, you’ll want the HP Mini 210 along with you.  Weighing in at just over 3 pounds but fully loaded for social media on the move, the HP Mini 210 is a perfect gift this June for dads who travel on business or graduates starting on new adventures. What amazes me is that HP fit into such a portable size–proving good things come in small packages.  My favorite features are the nearly full-sized … Read entire article »

Boys and Their Dolls

Boys and Their Dolls

I’m a zealous convert to the play power of dolls.  As a kid I was not as excited about dolls but for my daughter it was love at first sight. Since my little boy looks up to his big sister, it was only a matter of time before he wanted to play with all of her toys, including the dolls.  So we got him a Corolle doll to call his own: the charming Blue Suce-Pouce in … Read entire article »

Dyson Transforms Your Home (Dyson Contest)

Dyson Transforms Your Home (Dyson Contest)

How’s this for the ultimate in chic meets geek? The Dyson DC25, which I was lucky enough to review, will be featured as a robot in the new transformers movie: Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. (Presciently, I noted last year that the DC25, “looks like a robot swallowed a volleyball.”) Now, some men actually like to clean–but for those who do not, maybe seeing this amazing transformer in the movie, debuting next week, will convince him vacuuming is … Read entire article »

What He Really Wants: Win a $100 Home Depot Gift Certificate

What He Really Wants: Win a $100 Home Depot Gift Certificate

Shopping for dad can be difficult. Many men view gifts of clothing much the way women view receiving small kitchen appliances and cleaning supplies as presents– way too utilitarian. Practical gifts are useful, but they are not exciting.   But who wants to waste money on frivolous things in this economy? Seriously….how many office toys and other useless junk does dad really need? For a gift both exciting and practical, consider a Home Depot gift card.  My husband’s eyes light up when he walks … Read entire article »

Give a Gift That Will Delight Dad This Father’s Day

Give a Gift That Will Delight Dad This Father’s Day

Traditional Father’s Day gifts like ties and wallets might be good enough for traditional 1950s dads, but what do you get a modern dad to say “Thanks for changing all of those diapers” or “I appreciate your help with nighttime feedings”? These cool dads deserve a gift as great as they are. My husband will be getting a Microsoft Zune for Father’s Day this year that will be perfect for listening to music … Read entire article »
