Patio Market Umbrella

Decorative and functional Market Umbrellas shield your family from rays and raindrops. Adds elegance to your yard, patio or garden. What’s good about a market umbrella for Dad? He does not have to build that gazebo for family ‘al fresco’ lunch parties. Instead, he can just relax this summer, in the shade. $35 and up.

Complement this really nice gift, with some DIY gifts by the kids for their eco-conscious, nature-loving father: beautiful diy garden crafts, made with recycled materials.

3. Fathers Day Gift For the high-tech dad:


Kindle Paperwhite, 6″ High Resolution Display with Next-Gen Built-in Light, Wi-Fi

Since buying a Amazon Kindle last year, I’ve probably read three times as many books as in several previous years combined. Current Kindle models have several advantages, one of which would be: best ergonomics. They also have the best features and quality. For example, since Kindle 2, the device syncs your library to your Kindle 1 and your iPhone. This means (with Amazon’s free apps), you can read a book on your iPhone while commuting, and continue reading that book home on your Kindle, and it will know which page you stopped before. Don’t want to read but still progress? In a rather soothing (electronic) voice, later models Kindle can read many books to you. And these are just some of the features. Priced at $119. [ ..

4. For New Dads with Baby-feeding Night-Duty:

Bathrobe for Men, from Ralph Lauren

What can I say: a great gift from a new mom to a new dad. I love the look, love the quality of Ralph Lauren, and love the multiple times he can use it: at night, on vacation, by the pool…  Worth every penny and actually ALL dads will love owning one of these.

Quality RL cotton bathrobes are typically around $80.
