Manly Gifts for Dad

With Father's Day quickly approaching, if you haven't shopped yet, you need to go now! This year, I decided to post a gift guide of some things that Dad really wants. Instead of ties, socks and pajamas, there are some cool gadgets and some other fun items that will help you get something a different for Dad this year. No returns, No exchanges. Give Dad what he really wants.

Here are a few items that my husband is getting this year:

Masterbuilt Digital Electric Smokehouse smokerMasterbuilt Digital Electric Smokehouse Smoker

With spring flying by and Father’s Day just around the corner, it's time to start talking barbecue. John McLemore, father, entrepreneur, Georgia resident and author of “Dadgum! That’s Good, Too!” knows a thing or two about planning a successful barbecue. In addition to his classic cookout recipes, John's secret ingredient is the Masterbuilt Digital Electric Smokehouse smoker. This product is easy to use and brings out those coveted smokey flavors in your favorite hamburgers and hot dogs (and would make a great gift for dad!).

This smoker has a black powder-coated body. The integrated, streamline control panel with blue LED display makes reading temperatures and cooking time in direct sunlight easy. With a redesigned front access drip pan and new smoother operating wood chip loading system, this smoker is ready for any challenge. The improved drip-catching system makes for easy clean up. The FULL foam insulation keeps the heat in, making for consistent smoking.

For the dad that loves his toys as much as the kids, look no further for the HEXBUG Spider XL then your local RadioShack.

These bright, remote-controlled, jumbo-sized robotic creatures are loaded with advanced design & engineering and are eerily mesmerizing to maneuver. Not only will they provide hours of techy fun with the kids, they also serve as great, desk-top distractions in the office.

The HEXBUG Spider XL is 65 percent larger than the Original HEXBUG Spider, and features 360 degree steering, an LED forward eye, and two-channel, user selectable radio-controlled remote control. The largest member of the HEXBUG family, the complexity of its internal mechanisms and six-legged crawling motion is simply fascinating to operate and watch.
