Celebrate Dad With Father’s Day Gifts He Will Cherish


Through the years, he’s always been there to help you along. Show your appreciation for dad with special gifts he would love to receive. Check out these gift ideas to make this Father’s Day one he won’t forget.

Give a Moment, Not Just a Gift
Louis M. Martini Winery reminds us to “Seize the Cabernet” and share a moment over a glass of wine this Father’s Day. Give the wine, share a glass and enjoy a special moment with your dad — or any dad. For a limited time, the winery is offering two Seize the Cabernet collections: a Seize the Cabernet Trio ($100) and a six-bottle, Ultimate Seize the Cabernet collection ($375), each with a collector’s box and available at www.louismartini.com.

Ultimate Gift for the King of the Grill
Give dad what he really wants this Father’s Day — steaks fit for a king. Make him smile with Omaha Steaks King Cut steaks, which include a 36-ounce New York Strip, 48-ounce Ribeye on the Bone, 48-ounce T-Bone and 72-ounce Top Sirloin. Available in cuts as thick as 3 to 6 inches, this is one gift he’ll love so much, he may feel generous enough to share. For information, visit www.OmahaSteaks.com/KingCuts.

The Gift of Smart Home Safety
Give dad peace of mind when he is away with Kidde’s RemoteLync. The Wi-Fi enabled remote notification device plugs into a single outlet and listens for a home’s existing smoke or carbon monoxide alarms. A patented technology distinguishes between alarm beeps and background noise. When triggered, RemoteLync alerts you and your designated contacts through a free app on iOS and Android devices, email and text message. There is an option to call 911 directly.

Sound on the Go
A portable speaker is the perfect gift for a dad on the go. Kinivo’s ZX100 mini speaker is small enough to fit the palm of dad’s hand so he can take it anywhere he goes. With a price as modest as its size, this portable speaker offers the quality and features, such as a rechargeable battery, to make it a sound gift dad will surely appreciate.

With its stunning picture quality, vibrant display, incredible audio capability and a sleek, 5-inch edge-to-edge HD screen, AQUOS Crystal revolutionizes the mobile phone experience.
