Beyond the Boring.
by Liz Gumbinner
Father's Day is nearly upon us, which means it is time to think of something fun for the father that isn't yet another soap-on-a-rope, mug or tie. (Although, the tie tack pictured at right is pretty flashy, don't you think? Dad can use it on existing ties.)
Cool Mom Picks has just released their 2009 Father's Day Guide with all kinds of unique items that will have Dad exclaiming "Wow!" instead of giving that courtesy sigh, "Oh, you really shouldn't have."
Star Wars cufflinks? A personalized baseball cap? Guitar-string bracelets made from actually-used strings from Dad's favorite artist? Yup, you'll find those in this guide - and more.
