Father's Day

15 Father’s Day Gifts Inspired by Your Favorite Characters and Celebrities

Poor Dad. He takes care of everything, but to thank him for all that he does, one day a year, we surprise him with…another tie! Don’t you think there’s a better way to show your father how much you care? With Father’s Day just days away, here are some great gift ideas inspired by this motley crew of actors, celebrities, characters and more.

Arnold Palmer


Palmer was more than a man who inspired a cool drink: He was one of the greatest golfers of all time! If your father aspires to golf greatness, too, he’ll love the Garmin Approach S4 Black GPS Watch, which comes preloaded with guides to 32,000 international courses. So whether your dad prefers the links or your own backyard, he can track the best courses in the world, his own game statistics, or calculate yardages for his shots.



It’s basically a given: if you’re a rock star, you’re licensed to wear sunglasses most of the time. Since your dad is the rock star of the family, it’s only fair to treat him to a pair of shades from Otis Eyewear

Laird Hamilton


Big wave surfer Laird is something of a god in surf circles. If your father is happiest when splashing around, he’ll love the Vivitar DVR 787HD 12 megapixel camcorder

LL Cool J


LL Cool J is frequently photographed in hats, but he’s one of the hottest bald guys around. If your father is proudest of his shiny pate, you might want to splurge on this Dylan dopp kit by Jack + Mulligan. It’s made of waterproof canvas, includes antique brass hardware and leather accents, and best of all, it’s proudly made in the USA.



With little more than a rubber band and a shoelace, this TV action hero could extricate himself from any dangerous situation. If your dad is crafty like MacGyver, get him Blendtec’s new all in one Designer Series blender. Basically the Swiss Army Knife of blenders, this gadget has a 1700-watt motor that easily whips up fresh-squeezed juices, smoothies, soups, salsas and more. The machine also serves up recipes and nutrition tips.

Mr. Rogers


It’s hard to think of anyone who was better loved than Fred Rogers, with his soothing voice and nurturing style. If your own father is as lovable as Rogers was, you’ll want to treat him to this super soft Peruvian Pima cotton Javier cardigan by Bolivares. It’s light, breathable and more of an investment piece than a closet filler. Splurge on Dad!

Rick Grimes


It’s not easy trying to save, much less feed, your loved ones during a zombie apocalypse. If The Walking Dead’s Rick could only find a FoodSaver 4850 Series Vacuum Sealer

Steve Jobs


If you’re concerned that your dear old dad is becoming something of a couch potato because he’s always tapping away on his Apple, like the company’s late CEO Steve Jobs, you might want to treat him to a stand up desk with a twist. The Workfit-P by Ergotron has a sleek, minimalist design and fairly big workspace that can support his Macbook. It’s easy to assemble and has a height-adjustable platform, so your dad can switch from sitting to standing several times throughout his workday.



Back in the day, mild-mannered Clark Kent could slip into a phone booth and emerge as Superman. Well, phone booths are long gone, but the SodaStream high gloss Play is a streamlined design by Yves Behar and comes in bright superhero red, white or blue. Faster than a speeding bullet, the SodaStream transforms ordinary carbonated club soda to full-fledged yummy sodas in a variety of flavors.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles


If you’re trying to find a way to get your introverted father out of his shell (get it?), consider the Turtle Shell 2.0 outdoor Bluetooth speakers. Rugged and shock proof, and available in colors to match nearly any décor, these speakers are super stylish.
