Some say Dads are tough to shop for–  I don’t agree— I’ve got more “non-tie” gift ideas !!

First up, check out this LED TV from Sunbrite (46”= $2895; 32”= $1495, 55” and 65”).  Designed for outdoor use– SunBriteTV’s are fully weatherproof against rain, snow, salt corrosion, BBQ grease, and works in temperatures as low as -24 up to 122 degrees Fahrenheit.  (pour water on TV) I would never do this with regular TV—With Sunbrite, backyard fun with Dad will never be the same!!


You’ve got a great TV—and whether it’s on a TV or a tablet, with a click of button, you can buy a digital movie to watch with Dad starting at $14 from iTunes, Amazon, VuDu and others—Some great movie titles for Dad include:

–Lone Survivor


–Jack Ryan:  Shadow Recruit

–American Hustle

–The Monuments Men


–The Lego Movie


If you want to make your own movies take a look at this camcorder from JVC It’s called the Everio (Eh-very-o)

Starting at $400 — uses SD card–not included

$450 with 8GB built-in memory plus SD card slot

$500 with 32GB built-in memory plus SD card slot

It’s an All-weather video camera ideal for outdoor activities—especially when shooting with a cell phone is too risky.  It’s waterpoof to 16-feet, shock-proof, dust-proof, freeze proof — and it FLOATS   Perfect for boating, hiking, camping, water parks or the pool.   (Long-life battery — 4.5 hours, perfect for extended use outdoors).


And so Dad looks good in those home videos– check out Gillette Fusion ProGlide with new FlexBall Technology—($11.49) –this first of its kind razor hits stores today (June 9th).  It has a new handle that pivots and responds to the contours of Dad’s face to shave more hairs comfortably.  AND with Gillette’s Blade Subscription—for about $1/week– Dad will get new cartridges all year round.


And finally so you can stay in touch with Dad—think about getting him a smartphone— and with Straight Talk you can pick from some amazing phones such as Samsung Galaxy S4, iPhone 5S and Androids under $100—AND with Straight Talk you’re looking at just $45/month UNLIMITED TALK, TEXT or DATA—and no contract ever—that’s half the price of most contract deals.
