By on June 10, 2008

In honor of geeky fathers everywhere and their clueless children, here is a fool-proof Father’s Day gift guide for dad’s who like gadgets, computers, and websites.

1. Domain Names!

2. New 3G iPhone

(Price: $199 on July 11th) Dad will have to wait a month for his present but this marvel of gadgety goodness will absolutely be worth it. The new 3G network iPhone is much faster browsing the web and much cheaper than the original iPhone.

3. Designer T-Shirts

4. Tech Magazines

(Price: Free!) Dad doesn’t have to know that these cool print magazines are free to subscribe to. Sign up to have Modern Domainer and Website Magazine delivered to Dad’s doorstep for some quality reading material.

5. Deluxe Mini-Fridge + Warmer Combo

(Price: $99) There is no doubt Dad will enjoy this expertly perfected deluxe mini-fridge that doubles as a food warmer. This has a digital display, holds a 6-pack of your favorite liquid in a can and is silent!

6. Optimus Maximus Keyboard

(Price: $1,589) Dad would probably cut his pinky finger off to own one of these keyboards. Save Dad’s pinky and buy him this heavenly keyboard from ThinkGeek. I’m not even going to go into detail… check out the video below.

7. “The Domain Game” Book

8. Ties Suck!

9. 500 GB Hard Drive

10. Moo.com Printed Goods

(Price: $10+) Go beyond the gift card. Design amazing printed products at Moo.com or buy a gift certificate and let Dad design his own MiniCards, PostCards, StickerBooks, NoteCards and more. The real amazing thing about Moo’s service is the ability to print 100 different images on 100 different cards at no extra cost.
