Last minute gifts for cool dads

Instead of a car review this week, here’s my list for best gift bets for cool dads:

Computer Glove

Cool dads are too cool to make phone calls. With these touch screen friendly gloves you can use any of your smart devices in the winter element.

Give Him the Boot!

Keep his feet warm and his fashion cool. Cool dads know the right pair of boots can be worn with jeans, corduroys and suits. http://www.ssense.com/men/designers/all/boots

Power Move

Cooldads stay on the go and need their electronic devices charged.  This device looks like a cup of coffee but powers up your smartphone and laptops as you grind through traffic.

It’s in the Bag

Cool dads always need to carry something. From a six-pack of beer to kid’s clothes to a laptop, this large Chrome messenger bag is rugged enough to handle to load. http://www.chromebagsstore.com/

Plaid Boys, Whatcha Gonna Do?

Cool dads have a mean streak followed by other streaks that eventually become a pattern of plaid. A plaid tie will be appreciated, as it can be rocked casually or dressy.

Holiday Spirit

Most cool dads definitely sip. Can’t miss with (Belvedere) Red, it’s the perfect Christmas color, and 50 percent of the proceeds go to fight against AIDS. Slightly flavored with a hints of vanilla and soft cream that compliment juice well.

Find (Belvedere) Red at the any of these local stores:

Margruder -5618 & 5626 Connecticut Ave. NW (202) 244-7800

Ace Beverage - 3301 New Mexico Ave. NW (202) 966-4444
