Food Network Dad, Netflix Dad, 5k Dad!
For the dad who likes Food Network!
While you may think dad knows everything there is to know about cooking meat, this book is guaranteed to teach dad a thing or two. Written by one of America’s premier butchers Pat LaFrieda, this book features tales from the meatpacking business, tips on preparing beef, lamb, pork, poultry and veal, and 75 family-old recipes for eating them.
A Good Egg
You love a veggie omelet in the morning, but stovetop cooking can be a little much when you’re still half asleep–and a hurried pre-work routine leaves little time for culinary bravado. Step up your breakfast game and make a hearty omelet in 45 seconds with this stoneware clay dish. Just place the ingredients and dish in microwave, follow the included recipe, and you’re well on your way to a well-balanced meal. Handmade in Texas.
For the dad who Netflix binges
Sometimes watching Hulu or Netflix in bed on a tablet isn’t enough. Google’s HDMI streaming stick allows media junkies to enhance their viewing by mirroring content from their smartphone or slate onto an HDTV. Chromecast supports all major apps: including Pandora, ESPN, Netflix, HBO, and several others.

Wellograph Wellness Watch
The activity tracker is a perfectly stylish fitness tracker for men, complete with a heart rate monitor, precision pedometer and stop watch, and the ability take a live pulse reading. It collects all your workout info (steps, distance, time, pace) like a souped-up running watch, and analyzes it to mark any trends in your activity levels. The Wellograph also automatically records your sleep — tracking the duration, restlessness and wake time — and analyzes that, too, throughout the night. We love that all of this health data syncs wireless via Bluetooth to your iOS or Android smartphone. Plus, with a choice of silver satin body, black chrome or white pearl set against a genuine leather or black nato strap, the watch can definitely complement a range of styles. (Wellograph, $299 for the body and $49 for the strap)
