Father’s Day for the Distinguished Dad

Posted on May 28th, 2012 by annalemberger

Every year, Father’s Day seems to sneak up on me without warning. And unlike Mother’s Day, a last-minute run to the local florist is not usually a great option. To help you avoid impulse buys of poorly researched electronics or embarrassing neckties, I scoured our collections for some of my favorite dad gifts. In this roundup you will find gifts to satisfy even the most refined and discriminating tastes–gifts even the notorious 007 would appreciate. And what dad doesn’t want to feel like James Bond? Complement your gift with a truly elegant evening out. Once the kids are asleep and the babysitter arrives, slip into your best Bond girl dress, because a night of martinis, poker tables, and unexpected adventures await!

Camping food, like hotdogs and baked beans, is easy to make and feeds a crowd.
