Father’s Day Gift Round Up

May 27th, 2010 posted by Family Corner Staff

FamilyCorner has several ideas for Dad, including some fun Father’s Day crafts that you and the kids can make at home. However, if you’re looking to buy something for that special man in your life, here are some of the latest products that have “wowed” us recently.

iFrogz has introduced the new CS40s – headphones that have an unbelievable comfort level. We’ve tested them out here and we were quite impressed! The “CS” stands for “comfort series” and they are the stylish new addition to the EarPollution headphone line by iFrogz. These lightweight, on-ear headphones are a great alternative to earbuds and other headphones that fit too tightly, and also feature ultra-cushioned ear cups for all-day wear. The CS40s are currently available in five colors – white, black, blue, red and pink – for an MSRP of $39.99. Each pair has an adjustable headband and folds into itself for portability. You can see them here.

Dads can get the most convenient shave possible with ShaveMate’s Titan 6! It’s the first and only all-in-one razor for men and comes complete with shaving cream right inside the handle. The Titan has 6 sharp blades surpassing the big name razors and making sure you get the closest shave possible. Now sold in Walgreen’s stores nationwide, $9.99 for a pack of three disposable razors.

Men love their gadgets, now there’s a way to make sure their favorite toys are protected from water damage!
