Best Gifts To Give This Father’s Day 2015
Wondering what to get the amazing dads in your life this Father’s Day? Daily Mom has got you covered. We have scoured high and low to bring you a great collection of gifts to give this year. This guide has something for everyone. Whether you are shopping for the hard-working dad who needs a new travel bag, the dad who still can’t give up video games or even the dad who seemingly has everything, we have something for you! This year, there is no need to settle for a boring gift that will go unused.
With all that Dad does for the family, he deserves nothing but the best – including something extra special, like the Distressed Mod Watch from the Dakota Watch Company. The Dakota Watch Company is a family company that has been creating quality timepieces since 1945, known for providing top quality, innovative, fashionable, yet affordable watches.
This watch really makes a statement, with a large face in a striking cobalt blue, and distressed top-quality extra wide leather band – it’s even more stunning in person. The unique style of the Distressed Mod watch is appropriate for any kind of dad – from the rough-and-tough outdoorsman to the businessman, or something in between. With a rugged, broken-in look that’s right on trend, Dad will be fashionable and functional, and each watch is backed with a 100% money-back guarantee.
Most modern dads do a fair share of housework, and vacuuming is a very common “dad task.” Gift Dad with an efficient and versatile new vacuum this Father’s Day and you can be sure that your floors will be spotless; he won’t want to stop using it! Any parent of girls will tell you about the mess of hair that ends up wound into the vacuum. The Eureka Brushroll Clean vacuum removes tangles from the brushroll with the touch of a button, cutting edge technology that will ensure you’re never sitting on the floor with scissors to cut hair out of the vacuum!
This vacuum has intense cleaning power as well, with SuctionSeal® Technology with All-Surface Suction Plates, the Eureka Brushroll Clean concentrates airflow for deep cleaning suction power. The vacuum also includes a variety of attachments and a cord that retracts with the touch of a button, removing the tedious task of cord-winding.
Suitable for both hard and soft flooring, the Eureka Brushroll Clean is the perfect vacuum for your space and will leave Dad anxious to vacuum again!
For dads who love tech and cool toys, the newest robot by Sphero won’t disappoint. Darkside Ollie is an app-controlled robot great for tricks, racing, and all around fun that dads and kids alike will love. Just charge Darkside Ollie out of the box, download the control app, and you’re ready to go. The robot pairs instantly with your phone via Bluetooth (and has a range of up to 100ft). Use the track pad in the control app to drive Darkside Ollie and discover hundreds of trick combinations like spinning, flipping, and even jumping (and unlike RC-cars, this guy won’t get stuck upside down). A demo mode in the app is helpful for getting started but not necessary as controlling Darkside Ollie is intuitive enough for adults and kids to get the hang of quickly.
Made with a polycarbonate shell, this robot is rugged yet powerful. Darkside Ollie can cruise up to 14 mph and even power up steep inclines! Included are two sets of interchangeable tires as well as flexible hubs great for off-road terrains and sharp cornering, but you can also race without either on smooth terrain. Darkside Ollie comes in black with a colorful glowing LED light so he can also be controlled at night (color settings can be customized easily in the app). What makes Darkside Ollie even cooler is the hackable and programmable inner robot. For dads that love hacking, Darkside Ollie can be programmed with MacroLab or OrbBasic. This makes this little robot not just a ton of fun but a great way to introduce children (or even adults!) to programming!

If Dad is working from home, then it may be time to upgrade his office chair for Father’s Day. And, what better place to shop for an office chair than Staples! We particularly love Staples’ Montessa II Luxura Managers Chair in black.
The black manager’s chair is covered with Luxura upholstery that looks and feels like real leather for a comfortable feel and professional appearance. It also offers resistance from liquid stains, dirt, and dust, making this chair easy to clean. The padded arms add luxurious comfort.
This lumbar support chair is built with a tilt tension lever for easy tilt customization. When he’s satisfied with his position, the tilt lock will prevent the chair from leaning too far. This chairs pneumatic height adjustment provides easy changes while the self-adjusting headrest will support his neck, reducing muscle pain.
We all know that Dad is working hard to support the family. He deserves to stay comfortable throughout his day so he can be ready to play with the family when he’s done.

Whether or not Dad considers himself a photographer will be irrelevant when he sees the Lomo’Instant Camera! The Lomo’Instant is the perfectly sized Instant Camera for him to enjoy wherever the family takes him and we love it because it’s the most creative way to take fun photos that can be shared anywhere and with everyone in a snap!
This camera works with the high quality and widely available Fujifilm Instax Mini film (known for creating bright colors and clear images) to product credit card sized snapshots that will perfectly fit into his wallet.
3 Shooting Modes
If your man isn’t into photography as much as you are, this camera makes shooting super easy. The Lomo’Instant has an auto flash shooting mode so you can easily shoot fantastic instant photos with flash in the touch of a button. With this mode, a sensor on the flash detects the brightness and the camera’s light meter will automatically produce just the right amount of flash. In this mode, the aperture is automatically set for f/16 and your exposure compensation can be adjusted.
However, if he wants to get creative or experiment a bit, there are two manual shooting modes that will really open up your shooting opportunities.
- Flash On Manual Mode: This mode is great for shooting indoors. The flash is on and you can switch between N for normal daytime shots and B shutter for long exposures.
- Flash Off Manual Mode: This mode is great for long exposures at night. The flash is switched off and you can switch between N for normal daytime shots and B shutter for long exposures at night.
3 Ultra-Advanced Lenses
What we love about this instant camera is that it allows you to change your lenses which will give Dad complete creative freedom if he wants to push beyond “point and shoot.” The camera has a built-in Wide Angle lens. However, this kit also includes Fisheye, Portrait and Close-Up lens attachments.
- Wide Angle Lens: This 27mm equivalent wide-angle lens captures more than your eyes can see and allows you to shoot uber-cool up-close-and-personal shots with the 0.4m closest focusing distance. Its perfectly suited to spontaneous instant shooting and we love using it for selfies!
- Fisheye Lens Attachment: Get hooked, lined and shamelessly sinkered for wonderful circular instants with the 170° Fisheye Lens Attachment.
- Portrait Lens Attachment: This 35mm equivalent lens attachment is incredibly versatile and gives great results indoors and out. It’s great for portraits as well as street photography and landscape shots.
- Close-up Lens: This lens is allowing a 10-15cm closest focusing distance, can be attached to the LomoInstant Cameras built-in Wide Angle lens for a taste of macro photography.
Shoot Unlimited Multiple and Long Exposures
With its maximum aperture of f/8, the Lomo’Instant Camera has the largest aperture setting currently in the instant photography world. It’s also the only modern Instant camera which allows you to shoot unlimited multiple exposure instants. This means you can combine numerous shots on one frame for show-stopping effects!
On another note, it’s a great camera for creating super l-o-o-o-o-o-ng exposures. The N setting on the Lomo’Instant is perfect for daytime shots and night shots with a flash. Using the B setting, Dad can hold the shutter open for as long as his heart contents to create stunning light-streaked photos that are perfect for low-light or night-time shooting.
Finally, he’ll enjoy adding color filters (choose from included blue, red, purple and yellow color gels) over the flash to give an artistic flair to his instant shots.
The possibilities are truly endless with the Lomo’Instant Camera and we think Dad will love it!

Women aren’t the only ones who care about having nice skin. Dad’s skin takes on all the same wear and tear as Mom’s but sometimes they just need a little direction on what products to use. Well, since you only use the best for yourself, the same should be true for Dad. This is where RSVP Skincare for men comes in. Did you know that men and women actually have very different skin? And they need to find products that work for their skin, accordingly? Men have higher levels of testosterone which actually cause a denser and tougher epidermis. Also, their sebum production levels are much higher which can lead to issues like excess shine, acne and clogged pores. RSVP designs their products specifically for men using some of the highest quality ingredients on earth.
RSVP formulates their products keeping their very high standards in mind. They use only high quality ingredients and formulations. Their products are:
- All-Natural & Certified Organic
- Fragrance Free
- Paraben Free
- Dye Free
- Gluten Free
- Not tested on animals
- Alcohol Free
- Phthalate Free
- Sulfate Free
- DEA Free
- Manufactured in a Solar Powered Green Facility
A gift set from RSVP would make a great gift this Father’s Day. They have multiple kits in an assortment of price ranges and something for everyone. One of our personal favorites is the Sunday’s Best Kit which includes Exfoliating Bamboo Face Scrub, Hydrating Green Tea Moisturizer, Repairing Anti-Age Face Serum, Rejuvenating Anti-Wrinkle Cream, Restoring Anti-Age Eye Serum and Soothe & Smooth Shave Cream. This is everything Dad needs to kick-start a new skin care routine. If you purchase this gift set you also receive an RSVP 3-Compartment Zippered Travel Satchel and their Organic Hydrating Lip Balm as bonus gifts! If you don’t need an entire kit you can also pick and choose from their collection. Their Dragon Blood Foaming Cleanser is a best seller and is fantastic for all skin types. Being a parent can be exhausting and take a toll on those eyes. Consider RSVP’s restoring eye serum to keep them looking bright and fresh.

Surprise dad this Father’s Day with a superb cup of coffee from this French Press by OXO. It brings a European barista’s perfect cup of coffee right to the comfort of your kitchen–an experience that coffee lovers are sure to enjoy. The OXO French Press extracts more from your coffee than a drip coffee maker because the water remains in contact with the grounds for as long as you decide. This not only allows for a completely customized extraction of flavor with each brew, but also ensures you get the most economy from your coffee grounds, something Dad will love, too. Mom will love this french press because it adds an extra touch of class to your kitchen. Dad will be pleased that it’s compact and doesn’t need replacement filters. The stainless steel and tempered borosilicate glass holds 8 cups, is heat-resistant, and is lighter than a drip coffee maker. OXO’s French Press is also made with soft-grip handle that is comfortable and non-slip, so even pouring your coffee is a delight.
One of the distinguishing features of the OXO French Press is the ease with which the coffee can be made and simplicity of cleaning the used grounds. To make coffee with this french press, you lower the stainless steel and silicone grounds-lifter into the carafe body and then add your favorite coffee grounds. Next, add a corresponding amount of boiling water into the french press, wait a few moments for the desired coffee strength, and finally lift the grounds-lifter up and out–and voila! You are left with a superbly flavorful brew that could make even a Monday morning sound great! To clean, there is a one-step process of simply lifting the grounds out and rinsing the carafe. Try this coffee maker and you will be pleased with the results.

The Dreaming Tree Wine is a collection of California-based wines from world-renowned (and dad, himself!) musician, Dave Matthews, and a team of celebrated winemakers. Whether the dad in your life is an avid wine collector, or the casual sipper with his dinner, The Dreaming Tree Wine is the perfect pairing, at any time. We thought that the Pinot Noir was delicious, and agreed that it “hits all the right notes.” It has a fruity taste that isn’t overpowering, and it’s just a bit sweet, while still maintaining a full-bodied red wine taste.
Even better, the Dreaming Tree wines are committed to sustainability as the cork closure is both natural and recyclable, the label is made with 100% recycled kraft brown paper, and the bottles are a quarter pound lighter than the average wine bottle, making the Dreaming Tree an eco-friendly way to celebrate fatherhood. The lightweight bottles are manufactured with clean-burning, natural gas, and they use black ink printing, which means no bleaching, and it reduces toxins. These wines are tasty, and paired with eco-friendly packaging, they truly are the whole package.
Clean and warm, Clean for Men, Classic will be a welcome surprise for even dads who shy away from scented toiletries. This scent features a mild combination of notes of bergamot, basil, juniper berry, violet leaf, vetiver, and oud, resulting in a scent that is fresh, yet distinctive.
Clean perfumes, a leader in crisp and non-frilly scents has been given rave reviews for this simple compilation of masculine fragrance. Even more than the delicious scent of these toiletries are the extra care put into the ingredients for Dad. The body wash is paraben and sulfate free, while the deodorant is void of aluminum and parabens. A perfect way to show Dad that you care!

Fred & Friends is one of the perfect spots to shop for any gift occasion, but especially Father’s Day. With a wide selection of man-friendly items, from silly to masculine, and always functional, there’s plenty to pick from for Dad this year.
Let’s face it: is there anything more manly than power tools? Fred & Friends has created the perfect tool for mealtime: the Pizza Boss 3000 Pizza Cutter – a pizza cutter in the shape of a circular saw. Dad can zoom through pizza cutting and feel like he’s the master of a tool shop – or in this case, the kitchen. Made from tough engineering-grade plastics and a sharp laser-etched stainless blade, this pizza cutter can cut through any kind of pizza with Dad’s favorite toppings, and it’s just all-around fun to use it.
Fred & Friends’ Hopped Up beer glass is a fun novelty item, perfect for the beer-loving dad.

Each Hopped Up beer glass is hand-blown and made from borosilicate glass.
Dad will love the Top Tool bottle opener from Fred & Friends. Created to look just like a tool from Dad’s toolbox, but it will actually open up a cold one with the flick of the wrist. This bottle opener is chrome-plated and zinc die-cast, and will stand up to even the heaviest user.
