Father's Day gifts for the design-minded, tool-toting or retro-styled dad

This Father’s Day, what will Dad be wishing for? A winning lottery ticket? Thicker hair? Children who sleep in?

Marketplace writer Lizzie Garrett Mettler set out to find some uncommon Father’s Day gifts, including a retro-style desk lamp, above, and a nostalgic boombox-shaped speaker for Dad's iPod, below. The L.A. at Home crew has augmented her picks with a few additional ideas.
