2012 Holiday Gift Guide: Gifts for Dad

Surprise dad with a new toy — or a new tool — this Christmas, or pick up a piece of sports memorabilia just to show him you care! This year my hubby asked for replacement parts for his mountain bike (so romantic and exciting!), but here are some of our favorite gift ideas for the special dads in your life:

QuadcopterMy hubby is an R/C enthusiast, and earlier this year he picked up quadcopter — basically a 4-rotor helicopter — to fly inside. Everyone who sees it fly asks where he got it, either for themselves or to give as a gift. This Syma Quadcopter can fly inside or out and can do tons of tricks as well!

Dremel Rotary ToolA Dremel Cordless Rotary Tool is the perfect gift for your handyman. This versatile tool grinds, cuts, sharpens, polishes, sands, carves and cleans, and its lithium-ion battery means the battery will last for when you need it! Or pick up this Dremel accessory kit for the guy who already has a well-loved Dremel!

GuitarSean recently confessed that he’s always wanted to learn to play the guitar, and this Fender Starcaster Natural Acoustic Guitar Kit would make a great gift for someone with a desire to learn. You can find tons of how-to videos on YouTube so that anyone can learn to play the guitar from home with a little practice and determination!
