2011 Holiday Gift Guide: Gifts for Dad

2011 Holiday Gift Guide: Gifts for Dad

My husband’s Christmas wishlist pretty much consists of RC planes and parts, but I’ve searched high and low and talked to other dads (as well as my own mom, who is the gift buying queen!) to find even more great gift ideas for your husband, father, brother or friend!

Here are my gift suggestions for the special dad in your life!

The Syma R/C Helicopter is perfect for flying in the house during the cold winter months, and it’s also a fun introduction to the world of RC planes and vehicles (which may or may not be a good thing!). This is one of our favorite gifts to give, and it’s always a hit!
 

I’ve always thought these Joby Gorillatorch Adjustable and Flexible Tripod Flashlights were so cool, and they’re perfect for any guy who’s ever asked you to hold a flashlight just so for them!
 

This Denali 115-Piece Home Repair Tool Kit includes pretty much every tool you need for any household project in a heavy-duty nylon bag and organizer that is small enough to fit under the sink.
 

For the outdoorsman in your life, the Gerber Bear Grylls Survival Series Ultimate Kit is the perfect collection of survival gear — including Gerber’s miniature multi-tool, a fire starter, a survival blanket, and a wire cutter — to survive even in the toughest spots.
 

This Cap Barbell 40-Pound Dumbbell Set includes two handles, four 2.5-pound plates, four 5-pound plates, 4 collars, and a plastic storage case so that dad can enjoy gym-quality equipment in the comfort of his own home!
 

Garmin continues to be the industry leader for GPS Navigators, and the Garmin nüvi 5-Inch Portable GPS Navigator includes lifetime map & traffic updates, a large sunlight-readable touchscreen, lane assist driving directions and ecoRoute to help Dad choose the most gas-efficient routes.
 

How about a new watch? This gorgeous Brown Leather Watch from Fossil would make a stylish addition to any watch collection. It also boasts water resistance up to 165 feet!
 

Steve Jobs by Walter Isaacson is sure to become a classic biography as Apple enthusiasts, entrepreneurs and history buffs hope for a peek into the mind of Steve Jobs, easily one of the most influential businessmen of our time. The hardcover edition would make a great addition to any book collection.
 

Dads deserve to be pampered too, and these Cashmere-Lined Black Lambskin Leather Gloves are beautiful and comfortable, perfect for keeping his hands warm on cold winter days.
