I’ve been a father for a decade now, so I’ve become accustomed to getting a lot of Father’s Day gifts from my wife and kids. At first it was the “draw something cute for Dad” type of gifts, or my wife took over and got me some really cool stuff. With the kids getting older, though, I’m entering the “typical gifts for Dad” era of my life, where I’ll end up with things like, “Hey, Dad, here’s a tie,” or “Hey, want this cool coffee mug?” even though I don’t wear ties or drink coffee.
With the explosion of “geeks are cool now!” over the past 10 years, there are tons of different Geek Dad-related gifts that can help you avoid receiving a tie, coffee mug, or “World’s Greatest Dad” statue this June 19 (although, I gotta admit, I loved buying that for my Dad when I was a kid).
