Father's Day gifts for the coolest dads
Artisan Leather iPad2 Cover
Dad will love this soft leather case: The tri-fold design props up the screen for easy viewing and a built-in Bluetooth-enabled keyboard allows efficient typing, texting and blogging, if pops is the Tumblr type.
$149, Restoration Hardware, 935 Broadway, 212-260-9479
YBuy Gadget Service
Rather than predictably give your dad the newest gadget why not let him try out 12 brand new ones? YBuy is a smart service that lets consumers try out the latest gadgets and appliances without having to commit. It allows users to test out products in their home for 30 day intervals and, at the end of the trial, they can either send the product back for a new toy or deduct the $24.95 from the already reduced price of the item.
Molton Brown Grooming Collection
A classic set that comes with a shaving brush made from silvertip badger bristles from Germany, a razor with a weighted chrome-plated handle and a chrome-plated stand to keep them in.
$295; Molton Brown; 128 Spring St., 212-965-1740 or moltonbrown.com
