FATHER'S DAY GIFT GUIDE 2011

Get Dad the gadgets he’s been waiting for all year with our Father’s Day Gift Guide for 2011.

Of all the holidays, Father’s Day is the one when Dad expects to get something he actually wants. And let’s face it: What he wants is some sweet new tech. But with all the great gadgets out there, narrowing down the possibilities to a solid short list can prove daunting, even for the most prepared gift givers amongst us. Luckily for you, we’ve already done most of the work.

Here are the 9 highest rank gifts for dad.

iGrill digital thermometer & iOS app, $99

For dads who love to cook

The iGrill turns pop’s BBQ into a veritable space ship of outdoor cuisine creation. Used as a stand-alone device, iGrill serves as a digital thermometer that adds a splash of 21st Century style to the grilling operation. But fire up the Bluetooth-connected iGrill app on aniPhone or iPad, and a world of useful features reveals itself. The multiple-meat temperature monitoring system allows the chef to cook everyone’s cut to his or her exact specifications. A highly handy “estimated time to completion” function makes serving all the food hot at the same time a breeze. And if your old man gets caught up in an exaggerated fishing story, an alarm will sound through both the app and the iGrill device, just to make sure he doesn’t have to deal with an over-done T-bone.

Scottevest SeV Revolution Plus gadget jacket

Scottevest SeV Revolution Plus gadget jacket, $200

For dads who travel

One of the few bad things about the wealth of spectacular gadgets now available to the modern man is lugging the dang things around. The SeV Revolution Plus gadget vest from Scottevest just makes that problem go away. Packing a whopping 26 various-sized pockets, the SeV Revolution Plus’ meticulous design lets dad carry everything from car keys to a water bottle to an iPad 2, all without looking ridiculously bulgy or uncomfortably weighed down. The waterproof and breathable jacket is insulated enough for a snowboard trip to the Rockies. And the zip-off sleeves enable it to quickly transform into a vest for warmer conditions. The jacket’s “Personal Area Network” hides all his pesky wires, and the collar loops make it simple to stow away his headphones. In short: This is the only jacket dad will ever need.
