Father's Day Gifts: Outdoor fun

June 17, 2011 |  7:03 am

Father's Day is coming up Sunday, so each day this week we're offering some gift ideas that might inspire you when you're looking for something to please the No. 1 man in your life. Today:

If Dad’s a splashy, sun-and-fun kind of guy, we suggest these fun swim trunks and flip-flops -- loaded with Martha’s Vineyard-style charm. (Junior is sure to follow in his footsteps, decked out in a matching mini ensemble.) Vineyard Vines men’s and boys floral shell chappy trunks, $79.50 and $55; men’s and boys grosgrain flip-flops, $45 and $30. All at

G-Form-iPadCase-1 (Medium) 
For the plugged-in outdoorsman, here’s the laptop or iPad/iPad2 case of his dreams. G-Form’s Extreme Sleeve is lightweight and flexible, yet waterproof, abrasion-resistant and beyond durable. Specially designed to withstand maximum impact, it absorbs more than 90% of energy upon high-speed collision. The company demos it surviving being hit by a bowling ball and tossed off a 20-foot balcony. (We’re confident that it can bungee jump and cliff-hang, too, but gotta be clear that this gift is no license for extreme antics.) An  11-inch laptop or iPad cover costs $69.95;  it's $79.95 for a 13-inch or 15-inch laptop cover, at

It's all about beer and sports
