Don't tell her, but shopping for Mother's Day wasn't too tough. Dad's big day, though? That's a whole other story. An odyssey, even. It's hard work finding a present Pops will actually want (although, probably not on the same level, as, say, the effort he put into teaching us how to ride a bike).
And that's why we started this year's search extra early. We hit the Big Apple's best dude stores, did a lil' online snooping, and consulted our favorite city fathers to compile some CliffNotes—a compendium of 17 cool-dad gifts that definitely doesn't include the weird massage tool from the Hammacher Schlemmer catalog.
