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 himÂ with our Suggestions for Father’s Day Gifts.
18 Holes or Bust: Gone Golfing? Do It Greener.
Greener Golfing Gear, $4 – $8,000
If you Dad lives for his 8 a.m. tee time, then golfing gear is definitely in order for Father’s Day. But how do you find the right gift for the golfer who already has everything, including a full set of TitaniumÂ drivers, irons, woods and putters? How about some golf tees?? Stifle your groans because these aren’t just any golf tees, these are Eco Tees. Made from corn, Eco Tees save trees – in fact, manufacturers estimate that switching over to Eco Tees will save 50,000 US trees a year. Plus, Eco Tees last longer than conventional wood tees. $4 for a package of 15 multi-colored tees. Of course, you’ll want to pick up some Eco Golf Balls for Dad to hit off his new tees. These patented balls literally dissolve in water after just 24 hours. They’re 100% biodegradable, non-toxic and water-soluble. Dad can safely hit (err, lose) these balls in salt or fresh water, glaciers, mountains or anywhere else.
For a bigger splurge, book Dad a tee-time at one of the growing number of eco-friendly golf courses across the nation (for the location nearest you, check out this list of the Audobon International certified courses.) Or for the biggest splurge of all, you can buy Dad his very own solar-powered golf cart – like the Sun Ray Cart from CruiseÂ Car, which comes in your choice of seven colors (Fire Engine Red or Military Camo are their biggest sellers). Eco-carts run $6,000- $8,000, but do come with an added incentive: A one-time tax credit of up to $900.
