It’s funny how when Mother’s Day rolled around, my mother always expected the world – and I can’t blame her, she was an amazing lady – but she wasn’t satisfied with many of her gifts. (This is the same woman who told me to stop sending flowers on her birthday and just send money.) Anyway, let Father’s Day come about, and it oftentimes seemed to be greeted with less fanfare.
This reporter doesn’t want to continue that tradition – nor would I want my readers to do the same, so for Father’s Day this year – which I just discovered falls on Sunday, June 15, 2014 – Best Buy has the same kind of gift center ideas that they had for Mother’s Day, ones that let users pick their “type” of dad and buy a gift accordingly.
For example, you can choose a “Gizmo Guru” from the drop-down menu for guys who like all things techy, and pick something cool, even if your budget is only from $50 to $100. There’s a Samsung Wallet Flip Cover for Samsung Galaxy S 5 phones that’s only $39, and pricier fare like an external battery case that I’d love for my iPhone 5 for $149.99 – but yes, I know, this is Father’s Day, not Mother’s Day. If you’re willing to go really all out and your guy is a techy adventurer type, they’ve got a GoPro camera for $399.99, so there are lots of choices for all budgets, and they’ve got their low price guarantee and free shipping options.
Even if he’s not technically oriented, you can find gifts that might meet his passion, like wine chillers, headphones, and full seasons of various TV shows on Blu-ray.
Of course, we know it’s the thought that counts, so it helps to start planning those luscious dinners, gifts and lingerie hookups (All the married ladies, all the married ladies…put your hands up!) right about now.
