In just a few days, it’ll be Father’s Day (yeah, this Sunday — panic now), when we honor our dear old dads, without whom none of us would exist. Doesn't he deserve something better than a tie? We've got you covered, picking out ideal items for five entirely different dads. And if our picks aren't perfect, each one comes with an alternate suggestion that might do the trick. Whether your dad's a shutterbug, country-club type, or couch potato, you'll find great gifts as soon as you click Continue.
Let’s say Dad is an al fresco chef extraordinaire, but his grill has seen better days. Consumer Reports raves about the stainless-steel 42,000-BTU Weber Genesis E-320, topping its ratings for medium-sized grills. But we say save $50 and get the $650 Genesis E-310 pictured above, which is the same grill but without that rarely-needed side burner. Either model is available for LP or natural gas, in lots of swank colors. Not good enough? Put some sizzle on the steak with a 124,000-BTU Wellbas Water-Cooled Barbecue System for complete control of the animal flesh-searing ritual, but look out, it’ll burn you for $4,300.
Pop can’t keep his eyes off the boob tube? Maybe he also needs a smaller one for his office or shop. This aptly-named Sharp AQUOS LC-20D42U 20-incher made my dad’s eyes pop; none of us were believing how sharp HDTV looks when it’s shrunk down to a smaller screen like this. It gives you a lot of HD for $469 (who knew HDTV would ever be this cheap?). Too cheap for you? Qualify for sainthood by giving Dad the best HDTV we've ever seen, the $5000 60-inch Pioneer Kuro PDP-6020FD plasma display.
