If you still have your dad, and are always wondering what to buy him, here’s a list. This is actually my list.
!. Aqua Velva. I know you think we like the expensive stuff at Nordstrom’s, but we don’t really. We are not really sure how much to put on. We don’t want to smell like Johnny going to the Prom and making everyone’s eyes water as he passes by. How much of that expensive stuff do you use? A dab, or five? With AV, we just splash it all over. Plus one bottle lasts exactly one year. $5.
2. Garage Art. This is this year’s version of the singing bass. Every man likes a gift that borders on being stupid. Compellingly stupid. This would be worth it if only for what the neighbors would think. This picture goes on your garage door. See more examples here. $229.
3. I saw this car/airplane video this morning and now I want it. Years ago, I wanted this car-boat combination but I didn’t get it either.
4. A Segway. I have wanted one since they first came out. No, I don’t really have a place to ride it. No, I didn’t hear that the owner of the company was killed riding his. No, I don’t care that Ellen DeGeneres fell 2-3 times on hers. I just want one.
