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 2012 and our Still More Fun Father’s Day Gift Ideas 2012. The guides are a great start to our assault on boring Dad’s Day gifts – but we knew this war would not be won without….free stuff!
The Great Father’s Day Gift Giveaway 2012
Want to hear something bizarre? The companies offering the gifts in our guide tend to want you to exchange your hard earned 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.

There is just something about giving Dad his Father’s Day gift…and then handing him a crowbar to open it! Yes, Man Crates are actually sealed wooden crates, stuffed with things Dad will love like beer, snacks, video games or beef jerky…if he can ever get it opened! Luckily, a crowbar is included. This ain’t Mother’s Day anymore – no bows, ribbons or wrapping paper on Father’s Day!
#2. Perfect Gift For Music Loving, Baseball Addicted Dad
BiGR Audio MLB Headphones
What We Are Giving Away? One Winner Will Get Their Choice of BiGR Audio MLB Headphones ($199 Value)
The best Father’s Day gifts are ones that are personalized to Dad’s interest and tastes. Let’s say Dad is a die hard Yankees fan, but also a lover of music and high fidelity. Do you go with a nice Yankees shirt or a high quality pair of headphones? Why choose? With the BiGR Audio MLB Headphones series you can pick from 30 different Major League Baseball team branded headphones. The headphones look fantastic, come in a Bambo collectors box, but most important of all – the headphones that have incredible sound quality.
#3. Perfect Gift For Music Loving, Martial Arts Addicted Dad

#4. Perfect Gift For The Music Scene, Music Loving Dad
BiGR Audio Rolling Stone Headphones
What We Are Giving Away? One Winner Will Get The BiGR Audio Rolling Stone Headphones ($139 Value)
Perhaps Dad is more of a music purest. He doesn’t like mixing his love of music with baseball or martial arts. He believes in the music and the message of the music man! For this rocking Dad, you need to go with the Rolling Stone Headphones from BiGR Audio.
#5. Perfect Gift to Keep Dad on His Diet
What We Are Giving Away? One Winner Will Receive a Rockboard Scooter ($199 Value)
We told you this Father’s Day Gift guide was going to be different – and this one proves it! The Rockboard Scooter is an awesomely fun scooter for kids. Instead of kicking to go, you keep both feet on the board and just rock back and forth to propel you forward at up to 10 MPH.
So, what is a kid’s scooter doing on this Father’s Day list? The scooter will hold riders up to 200 pounds, and with its adjustable handle bar, Dads will have no problem riding this scooter and having a blast. Father’s Day should be about fun and this is fun. Once Dad enjoys riding the Rockboard around, he will think twice about going off his diet and passing the 200 pound mark. Bonus, riding the Rockboard is great exercise so Dad will stay in shape as he has fun scooting like a kid again. See, you just need to think outside the box a little!
#6. Top Gift For The Dad That Loves Gadgets, But Hates Wires
iDAPT i4 Universal Charger
What We Are Giving Away? 1 Winner Will Receive The iDAPT i4 Universal Charger ($59 Value)
Dads tend to like gadgets. iPhones, GPS, digital cameras, Android tablets, music players – the more the merrier when it comes to these beautifully designed pieces of technology. However, there is an ugly dark side to all these cool gadgets – the ungodly mess of charging adapters and cables that come with each new gadget.
This Father’s Day help Dad (and the rest of the family) kill the beast of wires with the iDAPT i4 Universal Charger. Simultaneous charge 4 different devices and lose all the ugly wires. Interchangeable tips mean the iDAPT works with over 4,000 gadgets. We know, how fun can a charger be? Well, keeping all Dad’s nifty gadgets juiced up will let Dad have tons of fun!
#7. Perfect Gift For the Fun Loving NASCAR Dad
Air Hogs R/C NASCAR Replica Car
What We Are Giving Away – One Winner Will Get The Air Hogs R/C NASCAR Car and Spin Master NASCAR Diecast Collectible Cars ($50 Value)
Does Dad put on his driving gloves, strap on his sporty driving sunglasses and then hop behind the wheel of the minivan and start to sob? Clearly Dad is suffering from a severe case of race car driver envy. Make Dad happy this Father’s Day by giving him the Air Hogs R/C NASCAR replica toy. Yes, yes it is a toy made for kids – but who cares, Dad wants to have fun and live out his dream of being a NASCAR driver. Spin Master also is giving away a number of other collectible NASCAR cars, so if Dad is a fan of NASCAR, make it a NASCAR rich Father’s Day!
#8. The Ultimate Gift To End Family Fights When On Vacation
Hub Innovations PRIZM Stand
What We Are Giving Away – One Winner Will Get The Hub Innovations Large PRIZM Stand ($35 Value)
You plan the ultimate family vacation, a small hotel room but with endless white sand beach to frolic on until the sun goes down…and then the rain hits. Suddenly you are living the parenting nightmare, trapped in a small room with limited entertainment options. Sure the iPad is loaded up with some movies, but of course the kids will fight over who gets to hold the iPad and get the “best” view.
Enter the Hub Innovations PRIZM Stand. The PRIZM is so light and thin it will takes up just barely more room in your suitecase than a piece of paper and that is why you will ACTUALLY bring this iPad stand with you. Snap it together in seconds, place the iPad in it and suddenly peace is restored…until the battery dies on the iPad.
#9. Best Place To Get Dad a Gift Card Without Being Labeled a Lazy Bastard – Part 1
Owen & Fred
What We Are Giving Away – One Winner Gets One a $50 Gift Card o Owen & Fred
Let’s be honest, normally when you get Dad a gift card to some major retail store it means you were just too lazy to find him an awesome father’s day gift and took the easy way out. Well, not all gift cards are created equal. Get Dad a gift card to a super cool store that specializes in awesome Manly gifts and suddenly you go from lazy bastard to thoughtful super shopper.
Owen & Fred is a manly online store that specializes in hand crafted, small batch, made in America products. We tested out a very cool wooden iPhone case, a beautiful wooden pen and a lovely smelling white pine shave jelly – all would make great Father’s Day gifts.

#12. Top Gift For the Dad Who Believes iPhones Should Be Used for Flying Not Phoning
Griffin Helo TC
What We Are Giving Away – 1 Winner Will Get a Griffin Helo TC iPhone Controlled Remote Helicopter ($50 Value)
I think the Federal Department of Dad Giveaways would shut us down if we did not have a remote controlled helicopter in this giveaway. There is something about Dads and R/C helicopters – we are completely addicted to them. The Griffin Helo TC takes things a step further by allowing Dad to use his iPhone to fly a cool helicopter around. If you win this one, better put the good China away now, Dad is going to be a flying maniac!
#13. Ultimate Gift For the Timeline Loving History Buff Dad
What We Are Giving Away – 1 Winner Will Get a HistioGraph ($30 Value)
Stereotypes just never hold up for everyone. Not all Dads want to spend Sundays watching football and drinking beer. There are Dads out there who get more of a kick out of debating who was the best Emperor as opposed to who was the best quarterback.
If Dad loves History, he will have a blast with the HistioGraph. The HistioGraph is a world history timeline chart that depicts the rise and fall of nations, peoples and cultures from 1500 BCE to the present day. Just be warned, if you win the HistioGraph for Dad, he will become a non-stop history trivia asking machine.
