There's not much help out there for poor souls seeking advice for Father's Day gifts. Stores and advertisers haven't really gotten over the golf and/or grilling card, the necktie, the crummy multi-tool set, or the everpresent aftershave.
Your dad does not want these for Father's Day. I promise. Fab.com, a flash sale site featuring contemporary design products, offers their 2012 Father's Day gift guide. It has a quality mix of modern products, as well as just solid, traditionally "manly" stuff.
