Father’s Day is right around the corner, which means it’s time to start thinking about the perfect way to show your dad just how much he means to you. If you’re planning on buying a gift for Father’s Day – don’t leave it to the last minute, or you’ll probably end up with yet another boring coffee mug or banal pinstripe tie.

Whether the dad in your life is into high-tech gadgets, grilling, or sporting gear (or all three), you’ll find the perfect gift for him with our Suggestions for Father’s Day Gifts.

 Gear for the Daddy to Be

Diaper Dude Diaper Bag, $54

For new dads and daddies to be, a diaper bag is a practical gift. The key to making it a perfect gift, though, is finding a bag specifically designed for men – and hip men at that. In other words, no hot pink vinyl or happy little farm animals! The Diaper Dude Diaper Bag more than meets the bill! This sporty little messenger style sack features padded adjustable straps for extra comfort. Inside, the bag has a large open compartment and a zip-closed pouch for diapers. Outside, there are three zip-closed pockets for Dad’s wallet, baby’s wipes and anything else he’ll need easy access to, plus an elasticized bottle pocket and a cool removable cell phone pouch. The Diaper Dude comes in tons of cool color schemes, including the ever-popular Camo with orange piping. You can find the Diaper Dude on sale right now for $54 with free shipping at diaperbags.com.

Tuesday, June 3rd, 2008

As we count down to Father’s Day (T-12 days) – here’s our look at some of TV’s favorite fathers: From the 1950s cardigan-wearing, “Father Knows Best” types to the 21st century guys juggling dysfunctional families and questionable careers.

So lets begin our look at TV dads by going back to those black and white  happy days of the 1950′s & 60′s.

TV’s Top Dads (in chronological order)

Ward Cleaver (1950′s/60′s)

Played by Hugh Beaumont, Ward Cleaver was the model of fatherly patience on the hit sitcom Leave It To Beaver (1957-1963). No matter what calamity son Beaver embroiled himself in – and there were some doozies, Ward was always ready with an encouraging word and some life wisdom. 

Check back each day for another TV dad (or you can cheat and check out all our TV dads here).
