This rod will help Dad the Fisherman catch more fish! Price: $79.99. Available: Dick's Sporting Goods or fish-eyes.com.
Better than a fanny-pack: Sprayground backpacks are perfect for the hip dad. These backpacks were originally designed for street artists in NYC to carry their spray cans.

These shirts are screen-printed on high-quality fabric and made with a chic, vintage look. Price: $32-$38. Available: Urban Outfitters or junkfoodclothing.com.
Sunglasses: Dad will surely love a new pair of Converse sunglasses for Father's Day. My 4-year-old son has broken three pairs of glasses, but his Converse pair have been the only ones to survive. If they're sturdy enough for a preschooler, then they are perfect for any dad. Converse glasses are long lasting and have a high-quality frame.

For the money: When I found The Craftmen shop on Etsy, I knew this was exactly what my husband would love. They have wallets, business card holders and belts. All of their leather items are hand-stitched, making each piece special and unique. The store has items that are made by two different leather craftsmen. They also include a custom-made gift bag with purchase. The Craftmen is located in New York, so make sure and order at least a week in advance. Price: about $35-$45.
