Are you on the hunt for the perfect gift for your favorite grad or dad? With graduation season upon us and Father’s Day less than a week away, lifestyle expert Marc Silverstein joined me for an interview this morning to dish on his five must have fashion, tech and DIY gift ideas for the guy in your life.
Candace Rose: What are the hot items for dads and grads?
Marc Silverstein: “You can always get dad another coffee mug that says World’s Number One Dad or the grad a pen, but I’ve got some better ideas!
Whether you’re listening to dad’s music or a grad’s music, wouldn’t it be nice to come home and hear music playing wirelessly via Bluetooth throughout the house? Well, the LG Soundplate is a perfect gift for dads and grads. It features a 120 watt 4.1 channel robust sound system with dual built in subwoofers. It makes for incredible sound for watching television, watching movies, watching the big game with the family. It also serves as a pedestal for 32 inch and 55 inch televisions, but it’s compact enough to fit up on the shelf or on the TV stand.
Now, maybe dad’s working up the barbecue, while the grad’s off to the parties – in both cases you want to arrive in style. The big look this summer is color blocking. For that, Nautica has the perfect options, the Performance Deck polo shirt comes in a variety of colors. It features moisture wicking and quick dry functionality. It’s going to look perfect out on the golf course. Check out Nautica’s Colorblock Guard swim trunks with comfort stretch and quick dry – great for the pool and great for the beach.
Maybe dad wants to change his look and the key is to be clean and professional. Philips Norelco has the perfect tools to upgrade his shave. The Philips Norelco shaver 8800 provides its most advanced shave ever. It has unique Aquatec technology that allows dad to use it dry or use it in the shower with shaving cream or without for a refreshing wet shave. The advanced GyroFlex 3D system has three way pivoting and flexing heads for perfect face contouring.
Now for guys who are looking to maybe change their facial hair, there is the Philips Norelco BeardTrimmer 9100. This is the world’s first with a laser. You can change any look you want easier. It projects a sharp line onto the face so you can see before you cut the hairs that you’re going to trim- that is a really cool idea.
Maybe dad is a DIY guy working on a project around the house or working on the car or maybe needs something for a big event outside, the Stanley FatMax Tripod Light is a perfect gift. This is three LED lights (bright LEDs) with up to 10 hours of runtime. It runs corded and cordless with rechargeable lithium ion technology and the lights are adjustable and detachable so you can shine the light in any direction. You can find this at Sams Club.
