Perfect for the Dad who does not like to compromise, the HP Spectre x360 – 13t Touch is designed with a singular purpose in mind: to provide the user with unlimited, uninhibited freedom. This is a PC that answers any challenge he may pose, and does it all with inspiring performance.  It’s a slim 13.3-inch 2-in-1 device (think laptop and tablet in one) with a 360-degree hinge allowing users to seamlessly transition between four different use modes: stand, tent, notebook and tablet.

Lucky Tackle Box Monthly Subscription (www.LuckyTackleBox.com) - Starting at $15/month

Lucky Tackle Box is a nifty gift for the sporty and outdoorsy Dad. Fishing is an excellent way to spend quality time with family while enjoying nature’s beauty, and is an activity I personally love—especially when I’m with dear ‘ole Dad. It’s even better when he catches a big fish…thanks to me! Lucky Tackle Box is reportedly the number one-rated monthly fishing subscription box that introduces fishermen to the newest baits and fishing tackle from the best brands.

For one low monthly fee, twelve times a year Lucky Tackle Box will ship a box jam-packed full of new lures and baits right to his door! Lucky Tackle Box also creates “how-to” videos for every product in the box so he’ll never be stuck with a lure he doesn’t know how to use. There are eight different boxes available for seven different fishing preferences. Lucky Tackle Box is a really great way for him to learn about—and use—new lures and techniques…and catch more fish! Lucky Tackle Box is great for that quintessential family bonding experience.


Soothe Massage on Demand (www.Soothe.com) – Starting at $99
Massages often top wish lists on holidays—especially those honoring a special someone. This is one of my favorite services that’s also extremely giftable: Soothe Massage on Demand (available in select markets). This APP-driven service will deliver a licensed, certified, vetted massage therapist to any home, office or hotel room, with as little as 60 minutes advance notice. Use it to book a relaxing and invigorating surprise lunchtime chair massage in the privacy of Dad’s office or after work in the man cave. Or, pre-pay a massage as a gift allowing him to book a session at his discretion. Services include Swedish, Deep Tissue, Sports and Pre-Natal massage for individuals or couples that are available in treatment lengths of 60-90-120 minutes—each for a fixed fee that includes gratuity and taxes ($99-$139-$169). Soothe has a world-class concierge team available from 8 am-midnight to answer customer questions, concerns, help with booking appointments and other logistics. Customers can book 24-7 via the iOS or Android APP online at soothe.com, or via the toll-free number 800-960-7668 during business hours. DEAL ALERT: Receive $30 off a first time massage with Soothe using the promo code “LUXELIST30.”



TomTom Spark GPS Fitness Watch (www.TomTom.com) - $249.99
Dad can forget about wearing a slew of different activity trackers and exercise watches when he’s rocking the TomTom Spark GPS Watch—the first fitness watch from TomTom to integrate a music player and Bluetooth connectivity. Designed for all fitness enthusiasts, from the casual to the committed, this device can store up to 500 songs on the Spark. Dad can now listen to his favorite playlists while tracking steps, miles, and calories burned while also monitoring his heart rate for an optimal workout—all while leaving behind his cellphone, pesky headphone straps and single-minded fitness trackers.  In addition to music, the watch also provides users with the following features: Sleep Tracking, 24/7 Activity Tracking, Voice Coach, Built-in Heart Rate Monitor, Heart Rate Training Zones and Multisport Mode. The TomTom Spark GPS Watch will give Dad everything he needs for a great workout in one easy-to-use and downright cool-looking wrist-worn device.

Mark West Black Pinot Noir (www.MarkWestWines.com- $12.99
Help Dad relax, unwind and enjoy this Father’s Day with a sumptuous bottle of Mark West Black—the dark side of Pinot Noir! The Mark West Black Pinot Noir is the deepest, darkest, smoothest wine yet from the winery known for producing great Pinot Noirs. Mark West was founded in 1978 with one desire only: to craft remarkable California Pinot Noir that delivers exceptional quality at an affordable price. The Mark West Black Pinot Noir is full-bodied, rich, and smooth, with notes of black cherries, plums, mocha, vanilla and caramel. This wine pairs perfectly with grilled lamb chops, gourmet flatbread pizza and pulled pork sandwiches.  A must for backyard BBQs with Dad this Father’s Day, and all summer long for that matter! Dad will surely sip, savor and sing your praises.

The Hub27 (www.ErgotronHome.com) - $349.95
Perfect for Dad’s home office, The Hub27 from ErgotronHome brings added purpose to any work area and the activities that make up home life. This product, and all others from ErgotronHome, are designed to meet every day functional needs in a way that also improves wellness. The Workspace Hub27 is a slim wall-hanging cabinet with a channel allowing Dad to plug in and charge all of his devices in one location—laptops, phones or tablets. A true space-saver, this organizer also doubles as a wall-mounted standing desk: just flip its door down to create a handy work surface. Dad can sort mail, make notes or do some computing, then close it up to conceal its contents. Studies find a strong correlation between long periods of sitting and elevated risk of mortality, whereas more standing results in a variety of benefits. Standing can reduce Dad’s risk of heart disease and also provide other health benefits like increased energy, improved posture, an increase in calories burned, boosted metabolism and toned muscles. Help Dad stand more and sit less with this ingenious space saver.
