I find that men are sometimes the hardest to chose gifts for. Sure, a video game, console or big T.V. does the trick most of the times, but what about those who like the fun quirky gifts? What then? You think outside the box. My dad loves practical gifts, and gifts that will provide him entertainment, so here are two that he has been enjoying:
A Multi-color LED Flashlight with 10 different LED colors; red, green, orange, turquoise, purple, yellow, light blue and violet. The flashlight is simple to use, one click on the buttom located on the bottom and the white LED automatically comes on. At the click of a smaller black button on the side you can toggle between the 10 different LED colors AND the last two settings are flash and fade modes. The output is quite bright, a 3W and takes 3 AAA batteries.
My dad used this to light up a hanging witch on out door during Halloween. It was green and we got a lot of compliments on the scary hanging witch! He mostly uses it to go do work on the outside of the house when its dark and surprisingly enjoys it to flash in peoples face, lol. The Multi-Color LED Flashlight retails for $24.99 at ThinkGeek.com This is one practical gift any father who enjoys flashlights that actually work and don't have a yellow-tint light :)
Next up is a fun little Shock Ball. Ever play hot potato? This is a fun new way to play, without the burns... or the potato lol. The Shock Ball is a novelty toy, not meant for children under 14. From the name of it, I'm sure you guessed its purpose. The Shock Ball is meant to be used in place of a hot potato when playing hot potato. The ball doesn't want you to win, so as you pass it around to your friends, it will emit random electrical shocks. The person who holds it the most without screaming out in
agonizing pain laughter (from the random shocks) is essentially the winner.
The random electrical shocks are not painful, they will most likely cause you to yell out in laughter than pain, but it is still not meant to be used by children under 14 or people with electrical devices like pace makers. My dad LOVED this gift, he has always been a practical joker, but he sure is mighty good at the game. Along with the electrical shocks, the ball lights up so make sure to play in the dark! The Shock Ball retails for $13.99 at ThinkGeek.com. GREAT. GIFT. IDEA.
