Men are funny creatures sometimes. There are things that all of them would love to have, but keep hoping someone else will give them. And, they’re too shy to say so. This Father’s Day, make his day by reading his mind and surprising him with one of these universal man-must-haves.
A secret superpower
He probably wouldn’t enjoy having claws like Wolverine, but what about being able to charge his phone no matter where he was? With the Red-E RS40 LED Solar powerbank, he’ll never have to worry about missing an important phone call again. The high powered, portable power source has a 4000mAh capacity, can be recharged via USB or the sun, and can charge two devices simultaneously. So, he’ll be able to help out other powerless people too. A true hero!
A trusty sidekick
Every hero needs a loyal sidekick, and there’s none more reliable than a Leatherman Sidekick. It has those legendary pliers for the things that his office fingers might be too soft to do, as well as 12 other useful tools, including wire cutters, a saw, bottle openers and blades. And, thanks to Leatherman’s 25-year warranty, this sidekick will stick with him for life.
A big, bright diamond
No, we’re not suggesting your dad’s into bling. But, like any man, he appreciates owning things that do the job properly. And the Black Diamond Spot is one of the best headlamps around. It has a precise and powerful 300 lumen beam that can instantly transition between full and dimmed power, and a waterproof design that means it can be used in heavy rain, or even under water up to a meter. Whether he uses it for trail running, night fishing or climbing up into the roof to do DIY things, this diamond will definitely brighten his life.
A way to stay sharp
Like it or not (and they really, really don’t) every man will suffer from a blunt blade at some point. It’s an affliction that makes them very miserable – but with the Lansky Blademedic, help is always at hand. This clever little kit can do instant field repairs on just about any knife or blade thanks to its two tungsten carbide ceramic sharpeners, ceramic serrated sharpener, and diamond tapered rod.
An all-day hug
Isn’t a hug from dad one of the best things in the world? But sometimes dads need hugs too - and there’s nobody around to give them one. So, if your dad doesn’t already own one, be sure to get him a K-Way Men’s Drake Down Jacket or Meru Down Vest. Tell him to put it on whenever he needs a hug from you. Of course, the lightweight, high quality down will also keep him toasty warm and comfortable on cold winter days.
