These gifts might not be considered good presents for Father’s Day in the traditional sense, but somehow they’re so bad, they’re actually awesome. Break free from the traditional boring ties or tools, and embrace the unique and unusual — Dad will thank you (maybe)!
1.Meggings (Man Leggings).
A garment of controversy, leggings walk a fine line between pants and undergarments, but why should women be the only ones to push the boundaries of appropriate apparel? With Meggings, leggings specifically designed for men, fellas can liberate themselves from conventional dress. Great for the hipster dad or any father who just doesn’t give a flying fashion statement.
2. Denim Bikini Swimwear.
Speaking of pushing the fashion envelope, Dad will be making waves this summer in these denim swim briefs! Nothing is more manly than a pair of waterproof jeans, so hang on to your banana hammocks because this swimwear is “sexy.”
3. Cruzin Cooler.
Does the dad in your life hate walking, but love cold beverages? Well, with the Cruzin Cooler, your dad can enjoy a cold beverage while cruising along at distances of up to 10 miles on the electric models. Great for sporting events, hunting, fishing… and I know my husband would have loved one of these on our recent trip to Disney World.
4. Uro Club.
Dads who golf are going to have to pee, that’s just par for the course. But now Dad can do it discreetly while on the course with the Uro Club! He just needs to clip on the privacy towel, unscrew the cap and go! It’s public urination at its finest!
Showering can really get in the way of enjoying a cold brewski — but not anymore, thanks to the Shakoolie Shower Beer Holder.
6. Loo Read.
Like many other spouses, I always find myself asking, “How can I get my husband to spend more time in the bathroom?!” Well, with this handy dandy Loo Read, dads everywhere can enjoy even more time alone on the throne!
Since Dad will be spending all that extra time in the bathroom, best to ensure he’ll be as sanitary as possible. With these mitten-shaped wipes, he can get the benefit of a full hand cleaning without the crappy contamination.
8. Knight Sweatshirt.
Is the dad on your shopping list a huge Game of Thrones fan? Let him feel like he’s part of the King’s Guard in this armored sweatshirt! He’ll be as comfortable as he is brave, and it’s only around $220!
9. Wearable Sleeping Bag.
Similar to how I feel about letting my husband spend as much time as possible in the bathroom, I want him to be able to lie down and rest whenever possible. With this wearable sleeping bag, he’ll be ready to sleep like a baby no matter where he is!
10. Human Slingshot.
How could this be a bad idea? Dad and several of his friends (or kids) can bounce around on the inside of this giant stretchable band like a bunch of human pinballs! Grab your friends and medical insurance cards, and let’s go!
So what do you think? Will you be giving or hoping to receive any of these gifts on Father’s Day?
