Father's Day is just a couple days away, but it's not too late to get that gift for dad!

It's the one day where we say thanks to dad, but whether it's expensive or not, we have some ideas your dad is sure to love.

We headed to Brookstone at University Park Mall in Mishawaka to find the perfect gift for pops.

Derek Salazar, the manager at Brookstone, says men just can’t avoid the store, “pretty much when the family is doing the shopping in the mall this is where the dads come to either hide out or just spend a little time. This is really a store for dads.”

We all know our dads work hard and getting them to relax can be quite a challenge. "After a long day at work you kind of want to kick back, relax, read the newspaper, maybe take a little nap. That's kind of what we focus on more - things that benefit everyday life," says Salazar.

Here are some relaxing ideas:


  • A hammock - one of the most popular father's day gifts here and they're selling like hotcakes at $99 each - $299 with a stand and pillow.
  • While lounging you need something to listen to - weatherproof outdoor wireless speakers - the cost: $125.

    “You can take that out on the deck while you're grilling, your music source can remain inside, it's weather proof, goes up to 150 feet,” says Salazar.

  • Nap slippers are one of the hottest sellers year round for Brookstone - the $40 slippers are made of pressure releasing foam that forms to your foot.
  • The power nap pillow is a gem and a steal at only $25.
  • The U-Harmony massage chair may be pricey, but does the job. It prices at $3,700.

Some other ideas:


  • If your dad is handy, how about a tiny 6-in-one tool - complete with light, knife, and screwdrivers - it's only $12.
  • If dad is a griller a chef's fork tells the temperature of your food and how much longer it needs to be cooked - no more charcoal chicken or burgers that look like hockey pucks!

So whatever you get dad this Father’s Day, just give him something that says “you’re appreciated”!
