Father’s day: classic dad jokes and better gifts

How do you make a Kleenex dance? Put a little boogie in it.

Did you hear about the guy who invented Lifesavers? They say he made a mint.

I had a dream I was a muffler last night. I woke up exhausted.

Dad jokes are the worst but fathers are such a blessing. Your father might be the most important person in the world to you, but sometimes life speeds up and you don’t realize that Father’s Day is around the corner. Don’t fret, you’re not the only one looking for last minute ideas. Luckily we have a few products that could make your Dad’s day. Whether he’s the musical guy, stereotypical Dad or Mr. Travel himself, there’s something in here for everyone.


Haven’t you always wondered how your Dad gets that clean shave or “scruffy” look? The fairy godmother doesn’t do it for him, and he most likely could use a set that has everything he needs. Jack Black has created the All About Him Set that includes all the tools to cleanse, shave, energize, and moisturize. It’s a travel set that’s compact and comes in a custom bag that can be used at home and on the go. If your Dad travels a lot, this could be a great gift for him. 

The products are friendly to his skin, containing pure ingredients that won’t irritate or dry out his face. The daily facial cleanser contains aloe and sage leaf, to remove dirt and oil. The beard lube is a pre-shave oil and cream that contains jojoba and eucalyptus. The Turbo wash works for both hair and the body with rosemary eucalyptus and juniper berry to wash away the dirt buildup. Finally, the set contains an oil-free moisturizer that can be used daily and this can all be bought here for the low price of $39. Not too shabby if you ask me.


Let’s be honest, Dad doesn’t quite look like he did when you were five years old. Maybe his hair is thinning out, or the barber snipped a little too much off. It happens, and that’s where Toppik comes in. They have nine common shades, one of which should match his hair color and help with any problem areas in addition to the two tools. He’ll be giving you a big hug and many thanks because this set makes styling much easier. It’s no secret men like to keep things simple. So why not keep his hair routine simple?

Toppik’s Hair Perfecting Duo includes a patented spray applicator and hairline optimizer. The pair works to create the look of fuller-looking, thicker hair by using these two tools with Hair Fibers. The Toppik Spray Applicator uses precision to cover the desired areas. Meanwhile, the Hairline Optimizer has a unique design with irregular teeth to resemble a natural looking front hairline. Dad will be ecstatic when he opens this up because quite honestly, he might need it. You can purchase this fantastic product here for only $20, what a steal!

The fibers themselves are made of colored keratin protein, blend undetectably with existing hair strands to instantly create the appearance of naturally thick, full hair. The Hair Building Fibers resist wind, rain, and perspiration for long-lasting results in all conditions. Like mentioned before, they come in nine shades that can be mixed to match virtually any hair color. They’re great for all hair types and textures. They work especially well for part lines, covering extension tracks and touching up roots between hair color appointments. The fibers can be purchased here and the price ranges anywhere from $7.95 – $79.95.

Men, have it so easy right? All they have to do is put on a pair of pants and a shirt, then it’s out the door. But the reality is just “that pair of pants and shirt,” aren’t always easy to find, might not be comfortable and almost definitely not conducive to transitioning from a busy, active day, to a night on the town. And are said clothing items high quality and fashion forward? Perhaps not. I can’t stop picturing the stereotypical Dad outfit that includes a Hawaiian shirt, khaki shorts, and socks with sandals. It makes me cringe just picturing it.

Luckily, astrneme is here to save the day. They alleviate all those problems and even help the most fashion challenged dad with a line that’s clean, cool & confident. The brand is hand-crafted for daily living, made for passionate people that live their craft. Dads tend to live their craft well, it’s like this line was made just for them. Astrneme’s pieces are practical, comfortable and stylish. Your Dad might be the nerdy engineer, but chances are astrneme has something for him too.

Let’s be honest; Dad’s are hard to buy for and they tend to lean towards something technology oriented. If your dad enjoys music and technology in general, this is the gift for him. Get him the Helix Cuff, by Ashley Chloe.
The Ashley Chloe Helix Cuff is a pair of wireless headphones that are both easy-to-use and tech-fashionable. They make a great gift that’s perfect for the stylish Dad in your life who loves both music and technology. They come in all sorts of colors and look good on everyone.
Your Dad is a busy, modern guy who has better things to do than deal with tangled headphone cords. The Helix Cuff is unique because it keeps earbuds on your wrist, within easy reach at all times, and it uses Bluetooth to connect to your cellphone, meaning no more tangled cords! It’s perfect for commuting to work, walking in the park, and listening to your favorite music or audio books. You can even make phone calls with it. When done, the Helix earbuds are stored back in a sleek, cutting-edge cuff.
The Helix Cuff is equipped with the most advanced sound technology available in a Bluetooth wearable tech gadget. It uses Smart Multipoint Connectivity that allows Dad to connect to multiple devices. The headphones also feature AptX technology, cVc noise reduction, and Bluetooth 4.1 to give you the most premium sound experience. You can buy them here and he’s going to love this practical innovative product.


Whether your dad has taught you a thing or two about personal style, or you had to talk him out of wearing a bucket hat and Hawaiian print shirt to your cousin’s wedding, he would probably opt for sleek furnishings for his man den over another cooler for Father’s Day. Ties can be a great gift too, but you can only have so many ties. Mugs are nice as well, but those get old very quickly and fill up mom’s cabinet space. Why not get him something he’ll use and enjoy for a long time?

His man den could probably use some updating, and Father’s Day is a great excuse to buy him some quality pieces to make a killer man den. LuxeDecor has a large selection of high-end brands and products that he’ll display proudly next to your macaroni art from elementary school. They have bookends, chairs, serving trays, and all sorts of manly room accessories. You can browse all of the options, like the ones shown and buy them here. He’s going to love these ultra-masculine pieces to spice up his favorite place to watch all the sporting events.



If your Dad loves his country, he needs this phone case. If his favorite line is: “the fervor of my patriotism keeps me going” get him this fully American case. It will definitely keep him going with the special design features. The NewerTech NuGuard KX iPhone Case is rugged without the bulk. It’s military drop tested for iPhones, including iPhone 7, 7 Plus, 6S, 6S Plus, 6, 6 Plus, 5S & 5C, and Samsung Galaxy S4. It’s perfect for fathers that travel or work/play outdoors. It comes in black, red, and blue, with unique design options, such as a U.S. flag. It can be purchased here for the small price of $29.75-$34.75 depending on what you get.

No matter what type of guy your Dad is, you can’t go wrong with any of these products. Your Dad will love that you took the time to pick out a cool gift, even if it was a little last minute. Happy Father’s Day everyone!
