Gifts for the Super Dad

June 14, 2011

He changed your diapers faster than a speeding bullet, he came to your rescue when you scraped your knee and he used his superhuman strength to lift those heavy boxes when you moved out. Help him celebrate Father’s Day (without unveiling his secret identity) with these gifts for the Super Dad!

What’s that you say? Shipping deadlines? Never fear, good citizen! Order by June 16th to send gifts home in time for Father’s Day using our special flat rate!

Super Dad will look super stylish in these collectible cufflinks. Made from authentic game-played helmets, these cufflinks feature sterling silver findings and have the school name stamped on the back.

The Batmobile has nothing on the desktop Dadmobile. Available in Vintage Thunderbird or Vintage Mustang, these paperweights are made using pieces of actual classic cars.

Handmade by Lori Burley, the fire hoses used to make these wallets have seen real action. Many even bear distress marks from being in service and passing quality testing. But, wallets aren’t Lori’s only creation. There’s still time to tell us why your Dad’s a hero for a chance to win a Fire Hose Belt.

Give your Dad of Steel this cloth of silver and help him fight off unwanted calls and texts. When wrapped tightly around the phone, the cloth creates a phenomenon that is known in science as a “Faraday Cage”. Any external static electrical field, such as a phone signal, will cause the electrical charges within the conducting fabric to redistribute themselves so as to cancel the field’s effects on what’s inside—it’s not the plot of a comic book—it’s the Phonekerchief!

Armed with these accessories, Super Dad saves the day again! His secret identity is safe, and although he must don the costume again when trouble nears, for the time being he can relax and enjoy his alter-ego as a New Dad, Handyman Dad or Geek Dad.

Gifts for the New Dad

June 13, 2011

Father’s Day is less than a week away, and for those first time parents it’s an extra-special day. Since we’re featuring gift ideas for of all kinds of fathers as we count down to Dad’s Day, we’re glad to share our top three gifts to help make the new daddy’s duties a little easier while he’s heating bottles, changing diapers and buttoning Babysuits™.

The newest dad in the UncommonGoods family, our Chief Technology Officer Casey, took a moment to tell us about his experience becoming a proud papa:

“Becoming a father three weeks ago to my little girl, Elle, was the greatest change in my adult life. To see that I created a life I am responsible for has really opened my eyes to another world,” he said. “I’m very happy I read several great books ahead of time as it has allowed me to understand her needs, so most of the time it is a lot of fun watching her be curious and discover the world. I am very excited to watch her grow and have a couple more!”

From baby books to diaper cream, here are our favorites.
