Why He Will Love It: For a dad who has never been afraid to tell people what he thinks, we recommend a subscription to a news and politics magazine from Magazines.com.

Give your dad something to talk about and you can earn Cash Back at Ebates, too.
Why He Will Love It: This guy has been everywhere and done everything. Some of his stories are unbelievable. Like really, not believable. For a dad who’s a living legend, we recommend this stylish and sturdy satchel.This burly yet butter-soft, 100% leather pouch is small enough to fit in the glove compartment but big enough to hold all the absolute essentials for a life of adventure.
Why He Will Love It: If you can keep pace, he will show you how to get more out of a weekend than you thought possible. This is a guy with goals and a will of steel, a guy with a great resume. For a dad who works hard and plays hard, we recommend the stainless steel and silicon ESQ watch by Movado. The ESQ keeps perfect track of hour, day and month all inside a sleek face. Plus it’s both durable and stylish so dad can keep track and keep up, from the boardroom to the boat.
Why He Will Love It: His favorite saying is, “If you’re not early, you’re late.” For the guy who never misses an appointment, knows the birthdays of all the neighbors and wants to keep track of all the local events and happenings, we recommend this classic leather planner. He can make notes about all the local happenings with this stylish ledger.
Why He Will Love It: In every family, there’s a record keeper. For the dad who knows where everything is because that’s where it belongs (and for heaven’s sake, don’t move it!) we recommend this incredible gadget that converts most films into digital files and automatically archives them. Preserving the past has never been so futuristic nor so compact.
Why He Will Love It: Has your father ever made a dish that had the word “surprise” in the name? That’s the hallmark of a man with a passion for food. For dads who could give Gordon Ramsay a run for his money, we recommend this 13-slot Cutlery Block by KitchenAid. This cutlery storage block helps keep his most frequently used knives sharp and close at hand.

It has every tool a tinkerer could ever want in one pocket-sized package. Plus, it looks like something Chuck Norris would use.
Why He Will Love It: His idea of unwinding at the end of a long day might include a comfy chair, the remote control, a libation and a tasty snack. That’s all the man needs for a recharge.
