It's a sad-but-true fact of parenthood: Dad often always plays second fiddle to Mom … even Father's Day is No. 2 in line.

Here, our suggestions (sans power tools — a cordless drill is on par with gifting Mom a blender) to make him feel like the man of the hour.
The cool, retro look will transport any dad back in time, and the crisp sound will keep him in the moment. Designed by the late Henry Kloss — the man behind the high fidelity loudspeaker technology — its analog dial allows for precise tuning but the auxiliary input makes it compatible with your iPod. $150 at roomandboard.com.
