Father’s Day is this Sunday, June 15th. Arguably the most important man, nay person, in your life is worthy of some thought and consideration. Whether your father’s the grill maven or a speed demon we’ve got great gift ideas for dad this year.
Either way, we seriously doubt he’ll care for a gift more than he’ll care for some mano-e-mano with the most important person in his life, you.
Read on for the 2008 Gear Patrol Father’s Day Gift Guide.

The Grill-Master Father:
Personalized Steak Platters
