What Dad Really Wants This Year on Father's Day

We’ve compiled a list of the Coolest Gifts for Dads this year. We asked all the dads at RepairLabs what’s on their wish list for this Father’s Day, and here are some of the ideas that they gave us.

Mouse Armrest -$30

Repetitive stress injuries are a real concern!

This is an ergonomic attachment for Dad’s office chair or desk. It will help reduce the possibiltes of bad posture and repetitive stress injuries from using a mouse.

BioLite CampStove- $129

CampsStove

Roast marshmallows and charge iPhone.

This little beauty also charges devices. If Dad’s a camper, this will be on his list. (It’s good to keep a phone around even when you’re unplugging– in case of emergencies.)

A Gadget Grip Mat – $11

Grippy-Pad-for-Car

The things he’ll stick to this are limited only by his imagination. Grippy Pad holds all sorts of things in place with an advanced silicone material. (I.e., stolen from aliens.)

DIY Gadget Card – Free

Dads love things you made for them. Even if you’re 30.

A fantastic tutorial and a really creative idea for a card for dad that you can make yourself, with the kids. Look inside each of the “apps” to find a cute personalized message.  From Charlottes Fancy.com

We <3 Daddy DIV Photo –Free

We-heart-daddy

You are now dead of the cute.

We think it would be relatively simple to take some posterboard and an iPhone and shoot this picture on a sunny afternoon. If my calculations are correct, the kids need to hold the signs upside down.  You stand facing them. Print it on photo stock pop it in a frame for his desk at work ~and  best part, it’s Dad’s favorite gift of all.  Laurie, the fantastic blogger  at Tip Junkie , provided this great picture, but was unable to find the source of this beautiful  image.

Hope these ideas get you going to show Dad how great he really is.
