Ale Sharpton’s Annual Last Minute Father’s Day Gift Guide

My favorite TV dad, Fred Sanford (Redd Foxx). Make your dad smile like this!
Here is Part One of a few gangster gifts for ya.
What’s up!
Come on, hook a dad up! If he’s yours, your husband, or just a good father in general who means something to ya, show him some love and consider one or a few of these awesome gifts below. Yes, the selection is random and not all beer related, but they still kick ass. Please believe it, a drug store greeting card and a clown tie are so not cool!
Look for where to treat him and his belly throughout Atlanta (including my beer dinner on the 19th) in Part 2!

Cheers!
Ale


Wherever Dad goes, the party goes!
Tego Audio: CERA Wireless Portable Speaker
With effortless pairing to any Bluetooth device with 3.0 technology, this small, space-age, easily portable speaker with stellar sound gets the party jumping from as far as 33 feet away! I love how at the press of a button, it pops up smoothly like something from the Jetsons. Actually, we're in that era now. Welcome to the future!
$89.99, $199.99 for the three-pack

See if Dad is royalty!
FamilyTree DNA
Now this is a meaningful gift. With this super simple test, I am sure Dad would love to find out where he comes from by ordering a DNA kit from FamilyTree DNA. Who knows? Trace his family’s migration routes, learn origins, etc. Heck, he could even be a descendant of royalty! Honestly, I just took the test and can’t wait for the results. Dad will feel the same. Make sure you have him sign a contract first stating you get a percentage in case he hits a jackpot! ($79 to $199)

Keep Dad well-suited!
Suitsupply.com to the rescue!
Want to make Dad really smile? Have him suited and booted with Suitsupply’s Spring and Summer 2014 Collection! And this chic Buckhead Atlanta retailer may make him look like a million dollars, but the cost is truly a fraction. “Suitsupply combines craftsmanship and the best luxury materials with a fresh and exciting take on the sartorial world,” says founder and CEO Fokke de Jong. Trust me, their stuff is fly!

Help Dad get his phone’s Grove on!
Grovemade: Bumper Case
Made exclusively for the iPhone, hand-sanded and oiled, this Grovemade Bumper Case is the “world’s first and only all wood bumper iPhone case crafted from maple and walnut.” Trust me, it is pretty smooth looking. And for a lil' beer element to it, this case is birthed in Portland, Oregon, which is arguably the craft beer capital of the U.S. $39

Poppin’ bottles!
The Beer Popper
With this gangster Beer Popper made of “solid 6061 billet aluminum construction and a replaceable stainless steel prying surface,” all those cheap key chains Dad has piling up in the silverware drawer will meet their fate. Plus, it ships free up until Father’s Day and hey, it says “BEER!” $25


Time for a beer literally!
Happy Hour Timepieces: The Ish
Is Dad super serious about getting his sipping on when work is over? Well this watch actually has an opener built in its buckle and a highlighted 5 to make Happy Hour his weekday priority! The strap is calfskin and the watch’s case is 316L stainless steel, plus water resistant up to 100 meters. Now he is telling time classy and practical! $99.99


Look for Part 2 featuring Beer Books!

Happy Father's Day to all the dads!
Cheers!
Ale
