The Daddy (Hubby) Wish List

It's time for the man of the house to have HIS day on Sunday.  Though, honestly, I've noticed that Moms' day has always been a bigger deal than Dads' day don't you think?  :-)

Anyhow, for this Father's Day week, I have compiled some really cool stuff that has ranked high on the daddy / hubby 'wish list' poll I did the past week.

Samsung LNT5265F 
52-Inch 1080p LCD HDTV
I must admit, most of the items here cost an arm and a leg.  If you're on a budget but still want to give (or receive) any of these, then I suggest you save (or no gifts at all) on all the annual occasions (Father's day, birthday, anniversary, Christmas, etc.) to afford one big-ticket item at the end of the year that your spouse or father truly desires and would definitely appreciate.  That's what J & I actually do.
So here are some great gift ideas to consider on Father's Day. It was not surprising that electronic products topped the list.


GADGETS AND ELECTRONICS

1. Wide Screen HDTV 
No. 1 on the Daddy/Hubby Wish List random survey I've conducted among a bunch of my friends.

Samsung 55-Inch 1080p 240 Hz LED HDTV
Samsung 55-Inch 1080p 240 Hz 3D LED HDTV
Samsung LNT5265F 52-Inch 1080p LCD HDTV 
Samsung UN55B8500 55-Inch 1080p 240 Hz LED HDTVSamsung UN55C8000 55-Inch 1080p 240 Hz 3D LED HDTV

And since the dads are on a wishing spree here, I'm quoting one dad who texted me thru his wife, that aside from a BIG TV, since this is just a wish, might as well add "a kick-ass home theater system" too!

We are very happy with our Samsung LCD like that first photo up top, but hubby wishes for a bigger one still! What is it with boys and their TVs? They can't seem to get enough and want to go bigger and bigger! 

(The following items were also "wished", and in no particular ranking.)

2. Game consoles like XBOX, Playstation 3 and Nintendo Wii

PS3 250 GB Father's Day Bundle (with LittleBigPlanet and HDMI Cable)
Xbox 360 120GB Elite Spring 2010 Bundle

3. Apple iPhone 4g

4. Apple iPad Tablet

5. Digital Camera

FASHION

1. Wrist Watch

A classic or rugged timepiece is always a wise choice.

3. Clothes & Accessories

Update his wardrobe with the latest trends. Or better yet, give him a fashion make-over (if he needs it) with his favorite clothing brands.

Plaid shirts are still in vogue, which ranks high in GQ's Top 10 Spring Essentials.

For the active man, a new set of sports apparel is going to be a winner.

World Cup 2010 Navy Hoodie
Adidas Singlet
World Cup 2010 Navy Hoodie adidas Adizero Singlet - Men's ( sz. L, Signal Blue/Acid Buzz )

Hip belts and sunglasses to complete his look:

Ray Ban Aviator Titanium Sunglasses
Ray Ban RB 8041 Aviator Titanium Sunglasses

4. Travel and Relaxation

Surprise your main man to a romantic getaway or adventure trip over the weekend, or simply book him a full body massage to de-stress and rejuvinate that hardworking body at a relaxing spa.


Gift or no gift, a quiet dinner or a mean breakfast in bed would surely put a smile on his face and make his day complete, especially spent with loved ones.

For the fathers, grandfathers, and husbands out there, have a great week and hope you get all your wishes!
