D&G's Medicine Man Watch

There's nothing like celebrating your father and Father Time with a watch upgrade. Every time Dad checks this chic D&G timepiece — complete with mod, multicolor graphic dial details and rectangular stainless steel case — he'll surely think of you. $215 at dillards.com.

FitFlop Dass Sandals

Toning shoes have been all the rage for ladies looking to tighten their bums and gams. Now, Dad can get in on the action. The men's version — available in black, brown, or chocolate — of the classic FitFlop flip flop has the same "microwabbleboard" technology as the original to help achieve such benefits as stronger quad and calf muscles. Plus, they reportedly reduce pain in the knees, ankles, and lower back instantly. What father doesn't need some good pain-in-the-ass relief? $59.99 at fitflop.com.

Jack Spade E-Reader Sleeve

Just because he's migrated from hardcover books to digital versions doesn't mean he prefers to store the works of Mark Twain and his favorite Benjamin Franklin biographies in a cold, faceless shell. Luckily, the blue and beige Dipped Industrial Canvas Cover, inspired by a traditional workman's glove and built with resilient materials for added durability, adds life to an electronic. $65 at barnesandnoble.com.

Help Dad start his day with a hot cup of whatever he likes.

Once the device's microcomputer detects the boiling point, it shuts off automatically. Plus, because the energy-efficient kettle uses only half the energy of one on the stove, you're doing him a solid by not adding to his utility bill. $99.99 at chefschoice.com.
