It's that time of year that we celebrate our parents. First it was Mom, and now, it's time to give thanks and praise our dads. I always find Dad to be a little harder to shop for. However, I found five Character Approved gifts perfect for that important man in your life that aren't tools or ties--and aren't too tough on your wallet. It's the thought that counts, anyway, right? Check 'em out in the slide show below!
At the MoMA store, you can always be sure to find at least one perfect gift. These Wobble Cognac Glasses, $60, are not only sophisticated but are a great display piece. [Image: MoMA]
Imperial Barber is a line of shaving and grooming products for men that not only come in some gorgeous packaging, they're water-based, which means they rinse out easily and won't build up. Plus, they start at just $10, so you can give an entire gift basket and maybe something else, too. [Image: Imperial Barber]
Does Dad take the train to work? Maybe he'd like a fresh set of headphones for his morning tunes, like these Urbanears Plattan Headphones, $60. They're a super alternative to earbuds and they come in tons of funky colors. [Image: Urbanears]
We spend most of our day looking at screens... from TVs to computers to smartphones and tablets. But they get smudgy so quickly! Enter Declan, a company that makes design-themed microfiber cloths to keep all our iThings clean, including our eyeglasses! Starting at $10--grab a 2-pack for Dad. [Image: Declan]
For Dad's nightstand or for his business trips, Braun's classic line of alarm clocks are a modern classic. No iPhone will every replace the lull of a ticking clock, so get your fab father a timeless timepiece for around $30. [Image: Braun]
