Dad Will Surely Appreciate These Last Minute Holiday Gifts

If we can have wireless phones, we sure as hell should have wireless snowblowers. No more unknotting and lassoing those long cords for dad. He can be the neighborhood blower with this lightweight, emission-free, 40-volt power tool. Then again, maybe “neighborhood blower” isn’t the best term to go with.
Cards Against Humanity ($25)
Don’t want to hear your dad make pervy jokes with your even more pervy uncle? ‘Tis the season to purchase him something else to direct his depraved mind at other than your mother.

Logitech Harmony All-in-One Remote ($119)
Both you and your dad have dreamed about this day.

Whether by the Harmony remote or app on your smartphone, you can control your entertainment system, TV and gaming consoles all from one object like it’s no biggie. Get used to being the favorite child.
Mr. Beer Home Brewery ($53)
The most affordable way for dad to kickstart his own beer brand is Mr. Beer, the startup kit that includes a reusable two-gallon keg, a pack of reusable beer bottles, carbonation tabs and everything else you need to make your own beer.

Bar10der All-in-One Bartender ($44.99)
On the other hand, this all-in-one kit has everything you need for tearing stuff apart later.

Dancin Dogg OptiShot Infrared Golf Simulator ($349.99)

With a library of worldly golf courses and a simulator that tacks speed and precision, he can explore an array of greens without ever leaving the house. Your mom might leave, though. They don’t tell you that on the box.

He’s not expecting you to get him a TV. But maybe you could check out some of the awesome deals from our Black Friday Blowout, some of which will likely be back up for sale the day after Christmas. Currently there’s an LG 98-inch 4K Ultra HD 3D Smart TV for only $40 grand. Maybe aim lower. There’s also still sales going on for Apple iPads, Apple TV and more.
Garmin Fishfinder ($80.99)
Your father always talks about how he loves to fish. You even got him that nice fishing rod a few years back that he hasn’t touched. Maybe he realized the thing he forgot about fishing is how much it sucks. Well, Garmin’s Fishfinder will change all that with its high tech beams and special fish trolling capabilities. Some are super affordable in simple gray while others can be high dollar trackers. You’re decision rests on how much your dad sucks at fishing or how quickly he quits and goes for the beer.
Finally, as a bonus…James Bond Cologne ($24.99)
Because hey, anyone could be in the running for the next 007. It’s the same cologne the real James Bond wears! No, no it isn’t.
