Candace Rose: What are the must have items for Father's Day this year?

Manoush Robin: "Well, I've got gifts for every kind of dad and every kind of budget. I want to start out with the gadgety dad – this Android phone is the first with a dual-touchscreen. The Kyocera Echo has two 3.5-inch screens so you can run 2 apps at the same time or you can use the whole phone as one big screen which of course is great for apps.

    It's going to let dad multitask but if you're looking for a gift that's not just great for the dad on the go but also for the whole family, think about the Blackberry Playbook. This is a super portable tablet, it's just 7 inches, it weighs under a pound but it's a tablet that's also super powerful, so it's great for games, it supports flash and it's going to keep the kids busy on summer road trips."

CR: Do you have any ideas for the music lover? 

MR: "I do have something for the music lovers, this is the Seagate GoFlex Satellite, this is a new wireless mobile storage drive that streams content to any device with Wi-Fi, so that means you can upload over 300 HD movies on there. This is great for smartphones and tablets because they have limited storage, so you can have 3 different users accessing all your music, your movies all at the same time.

     Now sometimes dads are a little bit more traditional, maybe this is for grandpa – from the inventors of the no. 2 pencil, Graf von Faber-Castellat they are marketing their 250th anniversary with these luxurious pens. They are just beautiful – the classic Anello and the Titanium Anello. They're handmade in Germany, this is really a gift that dad is going to keep forever, it's really an heirloom gift.

Maybe dad loves to barbecue or maybe you're in charge of this years barbecue, this is the 'Thrill the grill package' from Omaha Steaks, it literally has something for everyone – chicken, chops, steaks, all delivered right to your door for under $50, so you could feed the neighborhood practically with the amount of food that they have here.
