Thank you to the following companies for providing me with samples to review. All opinions are my own.
Father’s Day is June 15th and we all are looking for something unique to give to the Dad in our lives. I’ve found 5 great gifts that are sure to bring a smile to the fatherly figure in your life.
1. Dropcam Pro
Give Dad the gift of sight with the Dropcam Pro! Dropcam is a cloud-based Wi-Fi video monitoring service offering free live streaming, two-way talk and remote viewing. Now Dad can easily stay connected to his favorite places, people and pets, no matter where he is.
Review – After using the Dropcam Pro for myself, I have to say it’s the best Wi-Fi based video camera I’ve used! The Dropcam Pro was easy to install and downloading the app on my iPhone was a snap. The picture is very clear in both day and night vision plus the 8x zoom also stays relatively focused. The sound is great and having a 130 degree field of view makes panning the camera fun and functional.
The BACtrack Mobile Breathalyzer puts the power of control in your hands by pairing with your smart phone to give instant and accurate BAC results. Whether you’ve had 1 beer or a few cocktails the BACtrack Mobile Breathalyzer can easily estimate your Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) using police-grade Xtend® Fuel Cell Sensor Technology. This not only offers the highest level of accuracy and consistency available but also by connecting to your iOS or Android device, the free BACtrack app can save your results, estimate when you’re BAC will return to 0.00% and even help track your drinking habits.
Review – After testing out the BACtrack Mobile Breathalyzer, I’m definitely impressed. The device was easy to pair with my phone via Bluetooth and the results showed almost instantly on my phone. I like the ability to track your habits and that the BACtrack can help predict when your BAC is back to normal. The BACtrack Mobile Breathalyzer is small and easily fits into a pocket or purse making it nice and portable.
When it comes to men, every woman knows there’s one thing we wish we could cover up, the funky stench that leaks out of the bathroom after it’s been visited. Thankfully Poo~Pourri can do just that! Offering over 15 different scents, this before-you-go toilet spray is certain to cover the smell of any bathroom visit! With fun names like No.2, Heavy Doody, Royal Flush and Trap-A-Crap, Poo~Pourri is not only useful but sure to bring a smile to Dad’s face.
Review – Our household tested out Poo~Pourri and I have to say, it certainly lives up to it’s name! Just 3-4 quick spritz’s in the bowl before hand and your left with a pleasant during and after the “act”! I’ll admit I was surprised at how well it works and smells. I think my favorite is Royal Flush and the Lavender Vanilla scents. The bottles are small enough to fit into a pocket or purse and can come in handy if you have to go in a public place!
4. Man Crates
Give Dad the manliest of gifts with Man Crates! This testosterone filled gift service for men offers over 25 different themed crates that ooze manliness and include everything from golfing items to beef jerky, knives and fishing gear! Not to mention every Man Crate let’s it’s recipient show off their guns by having to open the wooden crate with the included crowbar.
Review – We tested out the Zombie Annihilation Crate from Man Crates and it certainly is steaming with man awesomeness! The crate including everything from Gerber knives and a machete to a Zombie Survival Guide book, flash light and even SPAM. The crate comes in, well a wooden crate that needs to be opened with an included crowbar which only adds to the guy fun.
Every man wants to have a great smile and we know they love technology, so when you pair the two together you get a great gift, the Oral-B Precision Black 7000 Rechargeable Electric Toothbrush. Now Dad can have the power of the dentist at home coupled with the professionally-inspired brush heads which allow the brushes to oscillate, rotate and pulsate to clean 2X better then a regular manual toothbrush. The brush comes with a rechargeable toothbrush handle, charging station with brush head storage, wireless smartguide, handle travel case and 3 Refill Heads – 1 Sensitive, 1 ProWhite, 1 Floss Action.
Review– If you are wanting a total dental clean at home, this electric toothbrush is it! The 3 different brush heads really give you a different at home experience and clean then I’ve ever had in an electric toothbrush. The timer is nice and I really like that it comes with a travel case, plus the brush stays charged for quite a while. It does take up a little space on the counter but it’s worth it when you’re able to get such a great cleaning at home!
With Father’s Day right around the corner, you’re sure to hit a home run with any of these fun and easy gifts! Wishing all the Dads out there a very happy Father’s Day!
