AskPatty’s Father’s Day Gift Guide

Fathers_day_gift_guideDo these holidays sneak up on you the same way they sneak up on us? One day it’s Mother's Day, and it seems like the next day, it’s Father’s Day.

Don’t fret if you’ve let your Father’s Day gift-shopping lapse till the last minute! Here are a few ideas that are perfect gifts for your favorite car guy.

Whether you’re looking for something fun for his man cave, or something more personal, we’ve got a great assortment of ideas here.

Skymall_fathers_day_mapLooking for something personalized? Surprise Dad with an unusual and challenging puzzle from SkyMall and he'll be delighted to discover his own special place exactly in the center! He’ll have hours of fun testing his local hometown knowledge as he pieces the puzzle together. Maybe he'll let you join in! And when it's built it will reveal that all-important message - 'I Love You, Dad!' SkyMall uses US Geological Survey mapping, digitally seamlessly stitched together, to create a high-quality jigsaw puzzle centered on the exact address you supply. The map covers an area 6 miles East-to-West and 4 miles North-to-South and is made of up to 400 pieces. ($39.95)

Busted_knuckle_garageI’ve always been a huge fan of products from the Busted Knuckle Garage. If your favorite father spends much time in the garage, there’s something here for him. Among the many wonderful automotive related products in their lineup, my favorites have always been in their skin care line, which includes cleaners and balms meant to help protect and heal hands that are constantly exposed to gasoline, oil and solvents, as well as cayenne-infused balm that helps heal sprains, bruising and swelling. I keep a can of their lip balm and hand salve in my car and a tin of their muscle easing salve on my nightstand, so I know your favorite grease monkey will love it too. ($9.95)

Gladiator-tall_gearboxPerfect for any man cave, workshop, or garage, Gladiator’s Premier Tall GearBox is dad’s saving grace when it comes to minimizing clutter. Steel-welded in the U.S.A., the Premier Tall GearBox stands over five feet tall and comes with three full-width shelves. As an added bonus, this cabinet sits on heavy-duty casters to meet dad’s ever-changing storage needs. Plus, when you need to get your cabinets off the floor, the GearBox conveniently mounts directly to bare studs and drywall or onto Gladiator Wall Systems. ($399.99)

Gladiator-workbenchDad always has a need for a sturdy foundation when tackling that “honey-do list.” With the Gladiator adjustable-height Hardwood Workbench with Hammered Granite Finish, dads everywhere can now build in style. The heavy-duty steel legs and robust 1-3/4” hardwood top are as tough as they look, supporting up to 3,000 lbs. Available in 6-foot ($349.99) or 4-foot ($299.99) lengths.

SpeedvegasLooking for an awesome last-minute gift you can download in just a few minutes? Give your guy a world-class driving experience with high-speed track time in the exotic or muscle car of his dream at Speed Vegas. The full-throttle package ($345) will put dad behind the wheel of Lamborghini Gallardo or the Iconic Porsche 911 GT3 for five laps on their 1.5-mile racetrack.  Or, let dad experience the power and excitement of America's hottest performance muscle cars like the Corvette Z06 and Shelby GT with no speed limits. ($196) Individual laps in a broad assortment of exciting vehicles can be purchased starting at $49. Download a gift certificate in less than 10 minutes or call 702-874-8888  today for the most exciting Father's Day gift on this list.
