Cut The Ties

Last-minute gift ideas for Dad

There are five days until Father's Day: no time left to shop, and you still don't have a clue what to get the old man. We've got some ideas to get the ball rolling.

Grillin' with It
The Grillslinger keeps Dad quick on the draw, whether he needs a spatula, tongs or a basting brush. It's like a Bat Belt for the barbecue, complete with a holder to keep a cold drink close at hand.
$99 at grillslinger.com

Golfin' with It
Even if he cusses out his car’s GPS system, Dad will welcome any golf advice he can get. The Sureshot Golf GPS uses satellite technology to map out the course as well as keep a record of Dad's stats. Bonus: if his preferred course isn't in the Sureshot's system, it will be online by request within seven business days.
$400 at thegolfcollection.com, (866-626-9517)

Goin' for It
Xperience Days
will get Dad out of the recliner and into mid-air. Take him on a Red Baron-style biplane ride, or if his heart can handle it, put him in a fighter jet for a simulated dogfight. Back on the ground, satisfy Pops' need for speed in a Land Rover off-road driving adventure, or in an Indy car doing 150 mph on a superspeedway.

Greasin' It Up
Give Dad the gift that says, "Live for today." "Throw caution to the wind." "Piss off Mom." Give him the gift of bacon with Bacon of the Month Club. He'll get a new gourmet flavor every month for a year. He really shouldn't eat it. But you know what? It'll be a gift he never forgets.
$140 for one package per month for 12 months, at gratefulpalate.com, (888-472-5283)
