This is the gift for any Dad looking to channel his inner George Clooney with golf by Italian Lakes. American tour operator Perillo released several new golf packages, but one of the standouts is the 9-Day Golf Highlights of Lake Region where you and your father can visit Italy's scenic Lake District, get in six rounds of golf at idyllic courses (Castelconturbia, Bogogno, La Pinetina, Menaggio, Carimate, and Villa D’Este round out the list), and stay in Stesa and Como. A 7-day car rental (manual transmission—you know, if you're feeling adventurous) or private transfers is included from/to the airport and between cities.
Begins at $2,154/person (international airfare is not included; price and trip can be modified based on the number of travelers), italyvacations.com
If Dad’s a scotch drinker, he’ll love this never-before-released single malt that comes in a special limited edition “Tome.” Inside, he’ll find his scotch of course, but also a hidden compartment with a watch and special Glencairn glasses.
If Dad’s a relentless adventurer, get him a camera that can keep up with him—through torrential downpours, hot and hazy heat, blizzards, even underwater (up to 49 feet for 60 minutes). The Leica X-U can handle it all; it's as rugged as cameras get. It seals out dust and water, and boasts a shockproof, anti-slip rubber outer with secure, simple handling so he can snap photos, even in precarious situations, under extreme elements, in a flash. After all, what’s an adventure of a lifetime without equally stunning photo proof?
VIZIO SmartCast™ P-Series™ Ultra HD HDR Home Theater Display™
The new VIZIO SmartCast™ P-Series Home Theater isn't like having an at-home theater experience—it's better. The 4K Ultra HD picture quality and High Dynamic Range and immersive Ultra Color Spectrum™ completely elevates the visuals, making them bigger and bolder than real life. You can also connect to a massive range of entertainment using the new VIZIO SmartCast™ Tablet Remote preloaded with the VIZIO SmartCast™ App. You'll never be able to top this Father's Day present, but Dad will understand.
If Dad always craves the newest, greatest tech there is, then gift him the Samsung Oculus Rift. The virtual reality headset changes what it means to be entertained. Dad can feel like he's stepping into his favorite game, watch a truly immersive VR movie, or travel to a destination on the other side of the world—all from his living room.
A high-performance turntable that plays records vertically through built-in, dynamic, full-range stereo speakers, this is a visually stunning piece of art and a seriously kickass piece of tech. Dad will be nostalgic, ecstatic, and grateful—all at the same time.
Filson, a brand known for its iconic leather goods made for outdoorsmen on the field, has also infused their fine craftsmanship into sturdy accessories for the suave kind of guy. This timepiece is constructed in a stainless steel case with an “anti-fingerprint” finish, a scratch-resistant crystal (the circular piece that tells the time) with an “anti-reflective” finish to reduce glare, a tough bridle leather strap that means business, and a green dial that oozes sophistication. It’s a classic that’s built to last and is damn well worth the price, but you may have to split the bill with your siblings.
If your dad treats his car like a second son, then you’ll want to check out Dyson’s new auto and boat vacuum. The cordless gadget features a bevy of attachments and can clean up even ground-in dirt for the dad who loves off-roading.
Ok, so this is seriously big spender territory but how cool would it be for him—or you for that matter—to meet this soccer great?
