Looking to get dad something a little nicer than a tie?  The following gift ideas may not necessarily be nicer, but they certainly show more thought!

When doing research for this post, I planned on searching the internet for cool gift ideas.  Little did I know, my first Google search would bring me to a one stop shopping ground!  The items at gifts.com are perfect!  I would appreciate getting any of them as a Fathers Day gift!  My personal favorites after the jump.

Indulge Him

Beer of the month club - Gift recipients receive 12 bottles of premium micro-brews (4 different kinds) every month from award-winning breweries nationwide. Available in 3, 6, 12 month and quarterly lengths.

Flatter Him

Personalized Stuffed Animal "Buddy" - You send in a picture of dad and they will will turn in in to a stuffed "Buddy" in the likeness of your dad!  OK, kind of cheesy, but creative and shows some thoughtfulness!

Light Up His World

Cordless LED Grill Light - Grilling in the dark just isn't smart. You can burn your food, or worse, yourself. Add some light with this sleek Grill Light. The four LED bulbs will bathe your grill in 50,000 hours of brilliant white light. No need for outdoor outlets -- 3 AA batteries (included) provide up to 6 hours of use.

Remind Him

Protect your dad's phone and let him show off the family at the same time!  You can upload your own photo, or choose from hundreds of fine art prints to contemporary designs to give dad's phone just a little "bling."

Help Him

iPhone Case Bottle Opener - Nothing is worse than being ready to crack open a cold one only to find there is no bottle opener handy. A hard rubberized iPhone case with a built-in bottle opener, this cellphone accessory can literally start a party in your ear. Convenient and cool, this nifty iPhone case bottle opener takes the already adored iPhone to unprecedented levels of sensationalism.

These are just a few of the gifts that caught my eye.  The most important thing to remember, in my opinion, is to give a gift that comes from the heart.  Dad's can tell when a gift is given as a "have to" as opposed to a "want to."
