Father's Day is coming up on June 18, so it's about that time to figure out what you're going to buy the dad in your life. Gone are the days when the best option for a gift for Dad was either a neck tie, a pair of novelty socks, or a "World's Greatest Dad" coffee mug. If you're going to spend the money, you might as well buy him something he'll actually use and enjoy, and even better if it's something he wouldn't think to buy for himself.
So, whether you're shopping for your dad, husband, relative or a friend, check out our list of some cool, unique, and thoughtful gifts to get him.
