Perfect Father's Day gifts take what you know your dad likes and capture it like a firefly in a bottle.
Whether he likes building model planes, working in the garden, fly fishing, or eating out, there is always a way to show your love.
If you can't afford to give your father a South Seas island vacation, let him daydream about it in a hand-crafted hammock with a tall glass of his favorite beverage in his hand.
You can buy hammocks and swings in a dazzling array of styles and colors at Novica.
Artisans from around the world use ancient crafts and update them to create 21st-century art.
Magazine subscriptions, fruit of the month club, nut of the month and other subscriptions are gifts that last an entire year.
Small craft breweries are springing up all over the country. That's one way to go for the Dad who loves a brewski.
Or perhaps your father wants to try his hand making some home brew.
Maybe your father isn't the type to sit around. Fishermen always need another rod or reel or fancy fly or a tackle box to keep it in.
Biking, flying model airplanes, and other hobbies lend themselves to buying that perfect missing tool or addition for your dad's collection.
Gardening is a much-loved hobby. The right tools can make the job easier.
From a Kindle to a camera to video recorder, digital products offer a wide selection of gift ideas.
There are dozens of kinds of add-ons, such as filters, tripods, additional lenses, and fancy camera bag straps -- something for most every budget.
Research shows that men bond and show they care by doing things. You may prefer to schedule a day at a ball game, museum, out fishing, or a one-day gambling cruise depending on what your father likes and the amenities where you live.
In the long run, the gift of your time means more than an expensive present. Call your father or maybe go out on that very special day.
