 By: Valerie Outmezguine

If you’re like me, then you find buying a gift for Father’s Day a difficult task. What do you get him when he’s got everything? I’ve come to the conclusion that while it’s amazing to buy dad something he doesn’t have, it’s also great to find him an upgrade to the products he does have. Here’s a list of 10 items you probably didn’t know Staples carries, and one just might be the perfect gift for your dad.

1. Garmin® Approach S1 Golf GPS –The perfect gift for golf aficionados. This watch measures individual shot distances, tracks how far you’ve walk on a course, and comes preloaded with more than 19,000 Canadian and US golf courses.

2. Danby™ Wine Cooler with 35-Bottle Capacity – Whether this cooler is used for wine or beer is up to you! Dad will never say no to a nice cool beverage on a hot summer’s day.

3. i-Grill 5 Piece BBQ Tool Set – BBQ sets need updating from time to time, as they can get a bit grimy. These tools come in a heavy duty stainless steel case making it easy to store.

4. Logitech Harmony 650 Universal Remote – If you’re like my dad then technology is everywhere. This piece replaces 5 remotes, meaning dad (or you) will no longer have to hunt for the DVD remote, and the colour screen has icons with for favourite channels and commands needed for the device you’re using.

5. iGo Electric Titan Electric Bike (E-Bike) in Black – It’s time to innovate. This electric bike features a Direct-Drive System, Rockshox front fork suspension, Shimano 8-speed Alivio derailleur, front and rear Tektro disc brakes, a 36V/10Ah Samsung Lithium Polymer battery pack and 3 modes of power assist. What more can dad ask for?

6. Edifier S550 Multimedia System with Multifunctional Wired/Wireless Remotes – It’s time for dad to have some fun and blast his tunes. Is it classic rock that he jives to, or perhaps a little country? Either way dad will have a serious stereo setup with this multimedia sound system.

7. Keurig Special Edition Brewing System – A coffee system that requires no cleaning, enough said! All dad has to do is pop in a serving of his preferred beverage, pick a temperature and sip away.

8. Sonax™ Milan 3-in-1 TV Stand in Gun MetalThis entertainment stand is slick and provides options for dad’s television. He can choose his style: a wall mounted TV, a back brace swivel mount or a sitting television.

9. Dirt Devil® Leaf Blower – If your dad has a sore back then you know raking the leaves in the fall is a tough chore for him. Become dad’s favourite by getting him a leaf blower. The speeds are variable and the fine-tip allows for controlled blowing.

10. Sonax™ Creekside 4-Piece Patio Lounge Set in Charcoal Black – It’s time to get dad to relax a little. He should enjoy the outdoors in style and comfort. This patio lounge set will do the trick, and I’m sure he’ll be grateful.
