Metro Man & Metro Home

By Jared Shechtman

Father’s Day is coming up pretty quick! We’re here to tell you what gift to get for good ole dad that he’s really going to appreciate.

Dads (men) have a tendency to get a little set in their ways as they get older, yet like all men they still wish to be hip and cool. That’s what mom is for, to keep them with it as best she can, and to make sure they don’t leave the house in a state would be….well….less than desirable. These gifts will help keep Dad on the cutting edge!

For Dad On The Links – X1R Remote Control Caddie

Odds are that Dad likes to golf, and despite his age, all boys still like to have their toys. The X1R is not only one of the most high tech golf caddies out there, it looks like it too! The standard version is completely controlled by remote, from up to approximately 50 yards away. Running on a rechargeable battery the X1R will last you all day on a single charge. The X1R features a lightweight, highly compact design for ease of transportation.

The Special Edition is available in custom colors, and with custom symbols, perhaps you want to match the vanity plate on Dads Porsche…

Price: $1,995

For Dads Workshop – The Craftworks Refrigerator

The Craftworks Refrigerator is the perfect addition to any workshop. Stock it with Dad’s favorite brew, to really give him a treat. The fridge looks just like a toolbox, with locking wheels and an interior designed to accommodate stacked cans, 2-liter bottles, and gallon jugs.

For Dad At The Office – Motorola Q Smartphone

Let dad wow all his friends with the latest and greatest in cell phone technology. The Motorola Q has more bells and whistles than the pimply guy in IT, or your younger brother will know how to teach him. It sports a QWERTY keyboard, high speed wireless broadband, Windows Mobile 5.0, Bluetooth, E-mail, and of course its got a camera. At only .45 inches thick the Q not only will it be the thinnest smartphone on the market, it also has a GREAT name (think James Bond)!
