Father's Day Gift Ideas

Like it or not Dads, we are often the go-to resource for projects around the house.  Whether it’s keeping the lawn mowed and the garage clean, or replacing a toilet and hanging pictures, Dads are called upon to keep the home working and maintained.

Here’s a few things that the home maintaining Dad will love to make projects of every size a little more fun.

Cordless Electric Lawn Mower


Mowing the lawn is one of the most routine of projects around the house.  With the Worx Eco 24 volt electric lawnmower, you can cut up to 12,000 square feet on a single charge of the battery.  No gas to spill, no emissions, no waking up the baby at nap time because the mower is too loud.  Love your yard and the planet all at once.

Asus Eee PCNetbooks

Netbooks are ultra-lightweight PCs that allow you to surf the web from just about anywhere.  Dads can check email, update social media sites and research information about DIY projects from in the garage, yard or even the Home Improvement Store (with the right internet access provider.)

Netbooks are available from nearly all the major PC manufacturers, including Dell, HP, Asus and Acer, and since they are less than half the cost of a typical laptop or desktop PC, they will fit right in to your Father’s Day gift budget.

Cedar Grilling Planks

After a hard day’s work around the house, the Grill become’s Dad’s domain.  Cedar Grilling planks let Dad infuse the distinct flavor and aroma of smoked cedar in to fish, poultry or veggies.

In the end, though, most Dads would say that one of the best gifts they could receive on Father’s Day is actually a day without any projects to do.  No matter how you celebrate, be sure you let Dad know that you love and appreciate all he does.

Father’s Day is June 20th.
