Father’s Day Gift Guide: Celebrity-Inspired Ideas For Dad
It’s the one day of the year Dad’s all around the world are celebrated for their selfless role in the lives of their children, yet it also seems to be the day of disappointing gifts. Father’s Day is notoriously tough on kids and mother’s as they struggle to find the “perfect gift” that doesn’t include socks and ties.
Well, this year you can rest easy as the gifts have become more elaborate and affordable for your loved one. Every Dad is different and thus their gift should fit their personality and lifestyle. Also keep in mind that any gift from the heart, whether it’s a new tech toy or a pocket square, is what matters the most to him. uShop has some ideas for these Hollywood Dads.
David Beckham is already known for his work on the field but off, he can be quite the dapper Dad as well. He enjoys dressing up in tailored suits by famous fashion designers. Like many Dads, he likes to keep in fashion and look his best when ever possible. For this type of father a stylish watch is a great gift. Try this one by Macy’s that features a bold white-and-red print and a slim design. This watch will add color to any suit and will have your Dad feeling loved every time he looks down at the heart shape engraving on the inside of the watch. Watch, Macy’s, $80.

Will Smith is a regular on the action-film circuit starring in some of the most successful films to date. He’s starred in blockbusters such as Bad Boys, I Am Legend and Independence Day. The 46-year-old is like most Dads, juggling raising kids with wanting to stay in shape, which is hard even on the easy days. For this type of Dad, try a Fit Bit. A wrist-monitoring device that tracks steps taken, calories burned, distance traveled, stairs climbed and active time on a daily basis. The device takes all the stress and thinking out of exercising without having to worry about going to the gym or keeping a strict diet. The bracelet also features a clock and alarm, notifications for incoming calls and connects to any smartphone or computer. Fit Bit, Amazon, $124.99.

Usher has been in the music business for over 20 years, but he still enjoys listening to his favorite songs when he has a little bit of free time. The R&B singer has had more than a dozen Billboard Top 100 Singles, including “U Got It Bad,” “Yeah” and “U Remind Me, “but is always willing to give another artist a chance to be heard. For the Father who has a big music collection and listens to music around the house, try this Aether Cone. The cone is a “thinking” music player that is voice-operated and learns your musical preferences so that it can customize your listening experience. The cone allows you access to Rdio’s free library and hundreds of internet radio stations so it can play more of the songs you love. Aether Cone, Amazon, $399.

Brad Pitt not only has six children but also runs his own production company, Plan B Entertainment, on top of the family’s philanthropic role through the Jolie-Pitt Foundation. Pitt is a very busy man to say the least and has an even busier personal life. Like most modern Dads multi-tasking comes with the territory. However, if you get your Dad this portable keyboard, working from home or while at a family function becomes much more plausible. This wireless iPad keyboard features precision holding magnets, large style keys and holds over 160 hours of battery life, so it can last as long as they can stay up. This accessory also comes with its own case and folds flat at exactly 6.4mm to be an easy travel companion.
Thank you EVERYONE for the Bday wishes! This year, I’m getting the GREATEST GIFT EVER. CAN’T WAIT. #BoyOrGirl #YouNeverKnow #WeDontEvenKnow #WeAreTakingBets A photo posted by Justin Timberlake (@justintimberlake) on
Justin Timberlake and Benedict Cumberbatch are just some of the new inductees into Fatherhood for this year and the list is growing. Timberlake welcomed a son Silas back in April and Cumberbatch welcomed a baby boy just a few days ago with fiancée Sophie Hunter. These stars are celebrating their first Father’s Day. Like all new parents, these men have a lot of new skills to learn. For these Dads, you try getting them this Travel Backpack Diaper Bag that comes with a changing pad. This practical bag is functional while still slightly trendy with its black hue. This bag is easy to carry with its two-strap backpack design and simple enough for a man to understand and pack. Also check out his Clip Camera that’s a light-weight wearable camera. The small size makes it unobtrusive, so the baby won’t wake from a nap or get frightened but still allow you to capture all those “first” moments in their young lives. Diaper Bag, Amazon. $49.99. Clip Camera, Amazon, $148.91.
Father’s Day is Sunday June 21, so get shopping!
