Dallas Mavericks Father's Day Gift Guide

Yahoo Contributor Network

"It's the thought that counts," when it comes to buying a Father's Day gift for your dad. That's a great sentiment, but isn't it time to go beyond something simple like a tie or cologne for Dad? Gift cards are great, too, but what ever happened to picking out a real gift? If your Dad is a Mavericks fan, then why not get him something he will really enjoy and use? Here's five suggestions that are sure to please, and practical to use, as well.

Travel Tumbler

My first gift idea is this 16oz. Ceramic Tavel Tumbler. It's $14.95. Dad can put his coffee in this, and take it on the road. It has a spill resistant lid, so he can even take it to work. This officially licensed tumbler has an easy grip handle, a snug lid for portability, and a very classic look. It even has the Mavericks logo, so it's a solid pick.

Pub Glass

Next up, at $14.95 as well, is the Dallas Mavericks 16oz. Pewter Logo Pub Glass. While this beverage holder is not so appropriate for work or travel, it is perfect for Dad's home viewing of the Mavericks games. Sixteen ounces of Dad's favorite beverage are all that needs to be provided, to make this the perfect home companion for watching the Mavericks play.

Vintage Shirt

If Dad has been a Mavericks fan through the good times and the bad, this $43.95 Mitchell & Ness Vintage Shirt will help Dad show off his loyalty, while showing some nostalgia for the early days of the Mavericks. Dad can wear a bit of the past, while the Mavericks fight for another championship this coming season.

Boardshorts

For $34.95, Dad can cool off in these Dallas Mavericks Team Fashion Boardshorts. These are a perfect Mavericks gift for the heat of the summer. They're light blue with white striping down the legs. Each leg has a cargo pocket, as well. While Dad cools off in the water, there will be no doubt who his favorite NBA team is.

Vintage Hat

If your dad ever wears a baseball cap, this one is an easy pick. This Vintage Logo Snapback Hat is $29.95. It's a navy blue hat with the classic Mavericks logo: the M with the white cowboy hat against the green ball. If Dad is a longtime fan, he'll look great in this high quality 100% wool adjustable hat. Even if he's only a recent Mavericks fan, this classic hat is a stylish way to show his support for Dallas.

Here's to next season, Mavericks fans, and happy Father's Day!
