Fathers Day 2012: Gift Ideas for Dad

Father's Day 2012 takes place Sunday, and families across the country will be looking to see how best to get dads something a little special. Often it can be confusing to know what to get fathers on this day, so if you are a little lost here are a few suggestions that are sure to go down well.

1) iPhone, iPad and MacBook accessories are on a special deal on Google where prices have been slashed. Shoppers are able to get $25 towards any $50 purchase, equating to a 50 percent discount. The offer is valid through Incase, a manufacturer of lightweight, durable designed cases for Apple products.

2) If your father in mind has an iPad or Android based tablet, then maybe a Logitech Tablet Keyboard could be a perfect gift. Tablets of course come with their own on screen keyboards that are fine for short emails or light typing work. But if you've noticed dad on his tablet for extended periods, or if he uses it for any kind of business work at all, then a proper keyboard is a must. It comes in a carrying case that also works as a stand for your tablet or smartphone. The Logitech Tablet keyboard can be purchased online at Amazon for $49.39 for the iPad, or a cheaper version can be purchased if dad's tablet is Android based, in which case you can get one for just $39.66.

3) How about a device that charges Android devices, but also can work as a music player/clock – the iHome Android Clock. The convenient accessory can be purchased for $39.99 and after getting one you'll wonder why you didn't get one before.

4) The Nikon 1 J1 is the perfect gift if you wanted to get dad a good camera. It shoots full HD (1080p) movies and photos. It also has a range of lens options that features vibration reduction for sharper photos. This camera can be purchased for $649.
