For the Dad who is forever misplacing his glasses, take the struggle out of the daily glasses location game with this nifty hard-carved wooden statuette. No more Dad searching around blindly, or trying to remember where he last put them down. This gift has extra feel-good brownie points because it was created by HSSS, a non-profit in India that helps underprivileged artisans, who suffer hardships with physical handicaps, illiteracy, extreme poverty, or being in lower castes, find markets for their wood products.

For the day dreaming Dad

Got a Dad who is often away with the fairies? Well why not send him to the stars with his own personal planetarium a.k.a. this augmented reality viewer and audio guide. Once he inserts his smartphone it overlays constellations, galaxies, planets, and cosmic factoids in six modes across the night sky, much like his own personal planetarium,  taking him from our little blue dot to the far reaches of the universe. Super cool no?

  1. I like the popcorn popper too. Really fun novelty gift. I also really like the coasters, at least they won’t disintegrate and look like a mess after two or three uses…
