What is better than getting Dad a great gift for Father’s Day?
Getting Dad a Great Gift for Free!
I am so excited that my kids just asked me if I need to sit in the timeout chair to calm down. Father’s Day, clearly the greatest holiday ever invented (thank you Sonora Smart Dodd, the “Mother of Father’s Day” – Google it) is quickly approaching and this year will be better than ever.
Dad Blog Declares War on Boring Father’s Day Gifts
As a Dad Blog, we have certain powers bestowed on us by the US Constitution (don’t try to find it, as a security measure we had all mentions of our powers removed from all copies of the Constitution). One of those powers is the right to declare war on boring Father’s Day Gifts.
We invoked this power by issuing two doctrines – our Ultimate Father’s Day Gift Guide 2011 and our Still More Fun Father’s Day Gift Ideas 2011. The guides are a great way to start our assault on boring Dad’s Day gifts – but we knew this war would not be won without….wait for it… free stuff!
The Great Father’s Day Gift Giveaway
It has come to our attention that the companies offering the gifts in our guide tend to want you to exchange money for their gifts. How outrageous! This is war, sacrifice must be made. We are happy to announce that after marathon sessions of negotiations, we managed to convince a number of the companies to join the cause and giveaway their super cool gifts.

#3. For the Dad Who Fancies Himself a Photographer
Portare’ Camera Bag
What We Are Giving Away? One Winner Will Receive a Portare’ Camera Bag ($139 Value)
Sure, we all have cameras built into our phones – but if Dad wants to take high quality photos of the kids, he is probably using a SLR or D-SLR camera. If Dad has a SLR camera, he will need a bag to carry in it – both the camera and the endless snacks and toys for the kids!
The Portare Camera Bag is a camera bag, diaper bag and laptop bag all in one. Dad can carry all his camera equipment in this bag and still have room for the necessities of life – like Goldfish crackers and wipes.

Some Dads can tell you every player on the 1950 Dodgers, while other Dads can tell you every Astronaut who has circled the globe. Maybe your Dad isn’t into sports or space – well how about Sci-Fi, Food or Pop-Culture? Basically, whatever Dad’s interests – You’ve Been Sentenced! has you covered with an Add-On Deck.
You’ve Been Sentenced! is a fun, family game where you make bizarre sentences and then have to defend them to score points. Sure, this game is for kids 8 and up, but Dads will love playing it as much as the kids and it will give Dad a chance to show off his bizarre knowledge in his favorite subject. This giveaway is for the original award winning You’ve Been Sentenced! game and all 6 additional add on decks.
#5. Gift Most Likely To Happily Drive Dad Insane
Tavern Puzzle Collection
What We Are Giving Away – One Winner Will Get One Tavern Puzzle ($25 Value)
Tavern Puzzles are reproductions of a type of puzzle traditionally forged by blacksmiths to amuse their friends at country taverns and inns. All the puzzles are handcrafted from mild steel and individually assembled in the USA. Each puzzle is mechanical in nature; removal of the object piece does not rely on force or trickery.
If the Dad in your life likes puzzles – these museum quality puzzles would make an incredible Father’s Day gift. Dad will love it, until he goes completely insane because he can’t solve it. At least he will go insane with a smile on his face.
#6. Top Gift for the Sports Fan Dad Who Still Wants to Be a Kid
Lil’ Teammates Sports Figures
What We Are Giving Away – 3 Winners. Each Winner Will Get 2 Sports Figures ($48 Total Value)
Lil’ Teammates are cute sports figures that are made for younger sports fans – kids ages 4-11. While our review showed that kids did love the figures, it was also clear that Dad’s loved them too!

#7. Top Gift For The Dad Who Wants a Bionic Arm, But Can’t Afford One
Djubi – A New Twist on Catch

You hook the ball on your racquet, pull it back and launch it over 100 feet to your son or daughter to catch.
Dad’s not getting any younger, but by giving him a toy that let’s him launch a ball 100 feet, he will feel like the athlete that he mistakenly thinks he once was.
