Give Dad classic shave kit


L'Occitane en Provence has a choice of two smooth shave kits on sale for Father's Day (June 20): the Classic shave for $45 and Cade for $50.

I smelled both at a L'Occitane store this weekend and I prefer the Classic Shave, but chacun pour soi (to each his own). The kits include a shaving gel, after shave and shea milk soap.

In South Florida, L'Occitane stores are located at The Mall at Wellington Green, Town Center at Boca Raton, Galleria Mall in Fort Lauderdale, Sawgrass Mills in Sunrise, Aventura Mall and Village at Merrick Park in Coral Gables.

Dad will rest easy at his next meeting with the Pillow Tie

If your dad has to endure endless hours of meetings and business functions, give him a Father's Day gift he will really appreciate: the Pillow Tie.

A hilarious twist on the traditional gift, this good-looking silk-blended tie contains a PVC insert with a tiny valve on the underside that Dad can blow up in one breath and then get his 40 winks because, as the company's slogan goes, "Most functions that require a necktie...deserve to be slept through." The clip-on tie works great a church, too.

Once the gag's over, he can remove the PVD insert. Or not.

The ties sell for $19.95 at But I found them at Deals.eBay for $11.99 with free shipping. There are 30 styles to choose from.

Let's hope he doesn't snore too loudly.

Dad can party on with these fun Father's Day gifts


Forget the tie and the shirt for Father's Day on June 20. Here's a few gift ideas Dad can use to get the party started.

How many times has Dad asked you to get him a beer? Well, this Remote Control Cooler from Sharper Image will bring him a cold one (it holds a 12 pack) and he'll never have to leave the recliner. It's soft-sided and collapsible so it stores easy. It's $49.99, batteries and beer not included. Click here to see a hilarious video demonstration.

Score a hole in one with the Designated Driver Kooler Klub from Tucked in his golf bag, this above-par drink dispenser is disguised as a golf club and holds 48 ounces of cold or hot beverages for $49.99. After a couple of shots, maybe he'll finally land it on the fairway. See it in action here.

He'll arrive in style on the Motorized Cooler from It's a little pricey at $1,895, but he'll have the most tricked-out 6.5 horsepower Coleman in the neighborhood.

What dad wouldn't love a talking Homer Simpson beer bottle opener? Pop off a cap and Homer says "Mmmmmm.....Beer." Perhaps he'd like a Three Stooges or Family Guy opener. From NASCAR to NFL to MLB, this site has cornered the market on talking bottler openers. They're $8.95 at

Put his favorite scotch on the rocks with Whiskey Stones. These Vermont soapstone cubes won't water down his spirits. Pop them in the freezer, then use them in place of ice in a highball glass. A set of nine is $19.95 at Sur la Table locations in Coconut Creek, Pembroke Pines and Palm Beach Gardens and at

Ok, I'd say Dad's drunk enough for now. Cheers!
