Unique and Luxury Father’s Day Gift ideas

Father's Day gift ideas.


Father’s Day is approaching, so it’s time to start thinking about how to honor the dad in your life. Start him off with a hearty breakfast and cards, then present him with his gift. If you need a little help thinking of ideas, I’ve got your back. Since men don’t fall into a one-gift-fits-all category, I’ve come up with unique tokens of appreciation for many personalities. For more gift ideas for every budget, check out last year’s post.

Libation Vacation

Skills that Thrill

  • America’s Cup Charters – Charter an America’s Cup winner out of Newport’s beautiful and calm Narragansett Bay, or purchase tickets for an evening cruise.
  • Skip Barber Racing School - Give him the adrenaline rush of racing with open wheels. Formula One racing is at the Lime Rock Park circuit in Lakeville, CT.
  •  Air Combat USA - He can be a fighter pilot for a day.  The 2012 dates are Aug 4 – 6 at Woodbine Municipal Airport near Atlantic City, while the Lancaster Municipal Airport in PA is scheduled for Jul 27 – 29. Other locations and dates are available.
  • Tandem Sky Diving - Fly to 10,000 feet, free fall, and enjoy the view as you glide back down. Kingda Ka at Six Flags can’t even compare to this rush! Not far from Flemington.
  • Nassau Helicopters - Helicopter flight lesson out of Princeton Airport.
  • Raritan Valley Flying School - Introductory flying lesson out of Princeton Airport.
  • Stormin’ Speed Boat - Head down to Ocean City for a speed boat ride.
  • New Jersey Rafting - Whitewater rafting. Choose anything from class I on the Bush Kill to class V on the India Brook.
  • Obstacle Apocalypse - A challenging obstacle course with an Oktoberfest after-party.

Seek Geek

  • iPad 3G on the Cheap - iPad 2 + Android phone + Android app.
  • Opulent Items  - They have an inflatable water orb that will allow him to literally walk on water.
  • i’m Watch -  Their watch is a more sophisticated version of an iPod Nano with a watchband accessory. A custom version of Android in this Italian smartwatch gives you access to music, e-mail, text messages, inbound calls, Facebook, Twitter, and other apps from the i’m Market.
  • Kennedy Space Center - This Astronaut Training Experience (ATX) will allow him to realistically train like an astronaut.


  • Mrs. G. TV & Appliances - It’s BBQ season, so what better gift than a brand new grill? Did you know they match prices?
  • Garage Craft Interiors – Give him a custom garage.
  • Brookstone - If you’re planning a snorkeling adventure, an underwater camera mask would make a great gift.
  • In Flight Balloon Adventures - A hot air balloon ride will provide amazing views.
  • DeTours Touring - Try a segway tour in Philadelphia.
  • PhotoTrek Tours - Customize a NYC tour with a photographer who captures you (and others) in specific places. Give your favorite photo as a digital file to Image Arts, and have them make a poster of your image (and frame it).
  • Name a Star Live - His star name would be launched into space with a rocket!
  • J. Hilburn - Order custom clothing including suits, shirts, and pants. Contact Vicky Corrodi.

Love the ideas! Sometimes it's so hard to think of what a guy wants!

Thanks Laura! It's really hard for women to figure out what guys like. I have to do a lot of research, and ask questions.
