To give a Father’s Day gift that also does good, head to Same Sky. The company showcases jewelry collections made by Same Sky-employed, HIV-positive women in Africa.

Go on the Father’s Day adventure of a lifetime.
If Dad still listens to CDs and uses a flip phone (a distinct possibility), he may need a technology push into modern times. Do him a favor with Amazon’s Kindle Fire for $199.00. This easy-to-use digital reader is more like a tablet: it comes with a color touchscreen, streaming for movies and TV shows, built-in Wi-Fi and games or apps. Plus, of course, he’ll now have the ability to read books digitally.

If dad loves concerts then he will surely enjoy watching Fleetwood Mac on July 3 from the Hyde Staples Center Suite. The $400 Fleetwood Mac Package includes dinner for two at Katsuya LA Live, two VIP seats at Hyde STAPLES, $100 food and beverage credit at Hyde STAPLES, and a Fleetwood Mac greatest hits CD.
Save Dad from some shopping pains by investing in a Burberry trench coat for him. This Diamond Quilted Warmer Raincoat is a traditional, timeless piece that fits into any man’s closet. It’s easy to throw over an outfit – professional or casual – and lasts forever. Lightweight enough for summer showers, with a button-in quilted warmer for colder evenings, this trench is perfect all year ‘round. Pick black or khaki for $795.00.
