ROCHESTER, N.Y., May 23, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Though Father's Day falls at the same time every year, the gift buying public is often unprepared for the shopping occasion. What to get Dad outside of the usual neckties and aftershave? One online retailer has answered the call of confused consumers everywhere with an outside of the box Gift Buying Guide for Dad.
X-treme Geek looked to the founders of geek culture for inspiration when assembling their definitive list of Father's Day finds. Bill Gates, Bill Nye, Rod Serling, and of course William Shatner serve as muses, providing a top 15 list of products guaranteed to get that big reaction from Dad on his special day.
Among the products on the list are tech gadgets like a Wireless Luggage Finder. If Dad travels, this makes an ideal gift. The clever device features a wireless transmitter tag that attaches to your luggage and a wireless key chain recognition device that alerts you when your luggage is on its way to you on the carousel. Other gifts to make life easier include Survival Kit in a Tin – it's like having your own pocket MacGyver.
Additional items add a touch of fun in Father's Day. A Sabre Umbrella transforms any rainy day into a swash-buckling pirate adventure. The handle is shaped as a sword turning ordinary into extraordinary and ensuring Dad feels daring in any weather conditions. More whimsical gifts come in the form of Gangster Mug Shot Glasses and a Universal Remote Wizard's Wand.
