Los Angeles Lakers Father’s Day Gift Guide

Yahoo Contributor Network

The Los Angeles Lakers may have broken Dad's heart during the 2012 playoffs, but he is not a fair weather fan. A concise Father's Day gift guide for the fan who already has all the team t-shirts he needs, makes this year's day of honoring Dad a success.

Golf Club Head Covers

Selling for $35, a three-pack of Los Angeles Lakers golf club head covers lets Dad take his passion for the NBA team to the driving range, where he might blow off some steam after a rather spectacular fourth quarter loss that not even Kobe Bryant could prevent. The three-pack includes covers for a fairway club, a driver, and a wedge or iron. The high-quality covers are durable and certain to protect dad's favorite golf clubs for years to come.

Black Two-Piece Vinyl Car Mat Set

Spend $35 and give Dad a set of Los Angeles Lakers black vinyl car mats. The heavy-duty mats offer a universal fit that makes them suitable for the smallest Pinto or the largest Mercedes. The team logo and colors fit right in with any vehicle's décor.

Los Angeles Lakers Black iPhone 4 Case

If Dad enjoys his gadgetry, replace the standard vinyl iPhone 4 case with a branded L.A. Lakers version. Retailing for about $30, the Los Angeles Lakers black iPhone 4 case is made of sturdy polycarbonate and fitted to hold the iPhone. It protects the gadget and does so in style.

Lakers 18 by 18 White Logo Decal

Drive along the highways and byways of Los Angeles and its surrounding cities, and you cannot miss the large white team decals that grace the back windows of the pickup trucks. Crafted from optically see-through vinyl, the Los Angeles Lakers 18 by 18 white logo decal sells for $20. It attaches permanently to the rear window and proclaims dad's fan status to all motorists around.

Team Logo Glass Tankard

Does Dad pride himself on maintaining a well-stocked bar in the hobby room? Help him start a collection of team logo glassware. A Los Angeles Lakers 15-ounce team logo glass tankard sells for $16, which makes it an affordable father's day gift option for younger shoppers. The tankard has a solid feel and the pewter logo adds a touch of class. Even if Dad decides not to expand on his logo glassware, there is never going to be any question whose mug is his.
