Father's Day is fast approaching, and that feeling of dread is likely setting in. "What can I get dad?"
Not to worry, though. If dad is a Chicago White Sox fan, there are plenty of options in all price ranges.
What better way to make a statement and show your team colors than with a custom iPhone case? Available with a baseball pattern and Sox logo, with a view of US Cellular Field, or in gloss black, these covers make a practical gift at only $24.95.
Dads on the go are always losing earbuds, or in need of an extra pair for the gym or car. These stylish white earbuds with the Sox Logo are perfect at only $9.95.
As a son, and a father, I know it is a rule dad must receive at least one tie on Father's Day. Ranging from $19.95 to $75, and in designs from subtle to striped, Sox ties let dad show off his colors at work in stylish ways.
Perhaps if dad already has a closet full of ties and you want to spend a little more on something truly unique, consider adding a tie bar or cufflinks to dad's jewelry collection. The silver tone tie bar with black Sox logo is a great buy at $33.95, as are the matching cufflinks at $59.95. Or pair them for only $79.95 and receive a beautiful MLB gift box.
Cool Car Stuff
From car flags to license plate covers to key chains, dad's ride can be a rolling show of support for his favorite team. With most car accessories priced under $10, you do not have to spend a lot of money to make a statement.
I am sure dad already has a hat, but nowadays there are hats available to match any outfit. From the current black and white, to the old fashioned red, white, and blue (or grey and camouflage too), there are plenty of ways for dad's hat to be unique. With most styles under $30, you might need to get dad a hat rack for Father's Day next year.
Every dad needs a jersey. And if dad's Robin Ventura of Frank Thomas jersey is getting a little ragged, this Father's Day might be the time for an upgrade. Featuring both current and past stars, and in as many colors and styles as hats, you are sure to find something in your price range.
Perhaps the best gift you can give dad this year is you. Pick up some tickets and spend an afternoon enjoying the company and the conversation. That is a gift dad will be sure to love.
