For the dads who love HBO’s Games of Thrones what could be better than an actual Game of Thrones throne! Just $30,000 gets the dad in your life his very own replica of the iron throne from the series.
While that Throne is made out of swords surrendered by the first king’s defeated enemies and welded together by dragon’s breath, the at-home version is made out of fiberglass and resin. It weighs in at 350 pounds, stands 7’2”tall and is 5’5” wide.
Wives, just beware this gift could give your man delusions of grandeur. He might actually begin to believe that he’s the king of his castle when you and I know we only let him play king once a year on Father’s Day. Read more.
For the Met fan dads on Long Island why not buy him his very own stake in the ball club! Just 20 million dollars gets you a 4% share of the team and comes with prime seating, Dad’s own CitiField parking spot and the opportunity to mingle with the players.
Really. That’s it. For 20 million bucks I would hope you could at least get Johan Santana to come over and wash Dad’s car! Read more.
By the way if you don’t have a spare 20 mil to spend but you want to indulge Dad’s devotion to the Amazin’s, I highly recommend RA Dickey’s new book “Wherever I Wind Up: My Quest for Truth, Authenticity and the Perfect Knuckleball”
ESPN calls it "An astounding memoir--haunting and touching, courageous and wise."
The book is a real page turner and it’ll only set you back about $17 on Amazon. Read more.
Is there a dad on the planet earth that doesn’t have a healthy appreciation for all things Stooge related? Just in time for Father’s Day comes the 20-disc box set: The Three Stooges: The Ultimate Collection 1934-1959 (Sony Pictures, $95).
It includes all 190 film shorts the trio made for Columbia Pictures plus two feature films, 28 shorts starring later day stooges Shemp Howard, Joe Besser and JoeDeRita, and three animated Stooges shorts.
For all the guitar playin’ dads, why not surprise Pop with one of rock’s most iconic axes and get him a Gretsch! Musicians from George Harrison to Tom Petty, Brian Setzer Neil Young, Jeff Beck, Pete Townshend and many more have used ‘em to get “that great Gretsch sound.” I got the father of my children a Chet Atkins Tennessee Rose model G6119 and he never puts it down!
Plus the chrome hardware and Bigsby Tailpiece makes it one of the coolest lookin’ instruments around. More.
Finally, if you absolutely, positively insist on getting the dad in your life a tie, at least make it a cool one! Neckties illustrating The Beatles, Pink Floyd, The Rolling Stones, Elvis, Jimmy Hendrix, Bob Marley and more are perfect for rocker dads.
My fave is the Angus young devil horns AC/DC tie.
Dad will love it! Not sure about Mom though. More.
