Reader Gift Guide: What Are You Buying for Dad This Year?


Black Friday draweth closer and with it, the intensifying pressure to get a leg up on your holiday shopping. You know the routine: unload your wallets and stuff those stockings.

Every year at Jezebel we do our own special, kooky series of gift guides, and this year will be no exception. But you guys are probably already putting together your shopping lists or making purchases, so this week we’ll focus on what you, the readers, are giving this season. Ideas aplenty! Today’s installment: gifts for dad.

This is going to work just like our Fall Fashion Shopping List. The rules:

1. Please don’t leave regular/direct comments on this post. Shopping submissions only! You can, however, comment on the submissions.

2. Items should be available online. We want to buy the cool trinket you found! Give us the link!

3. Avoid duplicates. If someone posts the thing you were absolutely planning on buying too, please avoid making a second entry for it. Instead, just chime in beneath their comment.

4. Follow this format for your entries:


Description of item, price, link to/name of retailer.

Additional notes.

For example:

Four Day WiFi Weather Forecaster, $59.99 at The Sharper Image

It is one of life’s indisputable truths that the older you get, the more you’re actually interested in weather, and this is definitely true for my father. Sure, he can pull up forecast info on his iPhone or whatever, but it doesn’t satiate his need to be surrounded with METEOROLOGICAL DATA-TYPE SHIT at all times. Putting this on his desk will help.
