Cool things to get to give as Fathers Day gifts

We’re over the tie by this point, right? World’s best dad mug but you only need one… so what else is there, try these gift ideas on for size.

unnamedNew sneakers from New Balance’s newest addition to the Vazee collection. The Vazee Prism running shoe was engineered for those always in beta and constantly pushing to be better. Featuring a medial post for extra stability when you need it the most, the Vazee Prism was designed optimal speed and the superior support required for all the miles you have planned.

nanotex-sheetsNew bed sheets that help cool off, Nanotex sheets use  Coolest Comfort and Wrinkle Defense technology help you stay dry and comfortable all night long, while keeping smooth and strong. Their advanced moisture wicking system pulls moisture away from your skin and keeps you dry, helping balance your body temperature. These life-changing sheets are available at retail stores such as Wal-Mart and Cabela’s and in multiple colors (Coffee, Cream, Mocha, Aqua, Ivory and Taupe).

unnamedNeed help locating your car when you park in that giant mall parking lot? how about getting an actual charge from your car charger well then the ZUS Car Finder and Smart Car Charger is the solution for you. The ZUS chargers 2x faster then typical car chargers it split plug design give you two USB ports to plug 2 different devices into.  Plus remember when I said if you needed help finding your car… ZUS saves your car’s location automatically. To find your car, open the ZUS app and be guided back to your car.

tile-on-key-chain_centerIf you cant find your car then most likely I’m betting you’re always loosing your keys. Tile is the solution for that problem. This little square that you sync to your phone can be found within 30 feet with the simple touch of a button on your app.  Plus if you miss place your phone you can tap the tile and it’ll ring your phone (if the app is open in the backround). They sell them in different counts cause it doesnt just have to be keys a little tape or glue and you can stick it to a remote control or place one in a wallet maybe even hide one in your kids favorite stuffed animal 🙂 For more info on Tile check out their website or purchase from amazon.

I was recently gifted one from my friends at Huggies and its pretty awesome. The Amazon Echo comes in 3 different sizes the original amazon echo, the echo dot, and a portable version called amazon tap.

Father’s Day gift idea: Upgrading to the latest Microsoft Office

2013-05-29 21:20:18 +00001With Father’s day coming directly at us I know I’ve been asked more then once what can I get my husband thats practical?   How about upgrading that outdated copy of Microsoft Office – sure that 2003 edition is still working why do you need anything different? well one major issue is that schools and office environments upgrade to the latest and greatest editions – and learning and practicing at home is key to success in the office or school.

For less then $100 you can upgrade for the new Office 365 which will give you 5 copies of the latest Office during your subscription.

Thats the key to this gifts – its a subscription – you can go buy a license and thats it you’re locked into this version of office but with the annual subscription you’ll keep getting updates another different is with the subscription you get 5 copies between PCs or Macs or even select mobile devices.

Plus as a bonus an hour of Skype phone calls each month which is pretty solid for that want to keep in touch with those friends that live overseas and if thats not enough how about 20GB of SkyDrive (Microsoft online storage space).

Not sure he’ll like it? Try the free trial for a month.

Ok you’re totally sure he’ll love it? Here’s the purchase link.

Wondering how you can get in on the action – remember you have 5 installs of the latest and greatest version of Office he’s the how to… How to Install Office on more than one computer.

And we’ve got a download code for ONE winner to have ONE YEAR OFFICE 365 subscription in this giveaway!
