Charlotte, NC (PRWEB) June 3, 2010
Almost half of fathers polled in a recent survey for Western Union said they have lied about liking a Father’s Day gift they received. Limitless online shopping options make finding a gift easier than in the past, but narrowing down the perfect one is still tough. Explore these suggestions he’s sure to love, courtesy of WildBlue Deals, an authorized dealer for WildBlue Communications – the leader in high-speed satellite Internet.
Charity donations – Give to Dad by giving back to others. Make a donation to his favorite charity in his name through its website. Some organizations like Doctors Without Borders offer cards notifying a loved one of the donation made in his name. Add a T-shirt advertising the charity as part of the gift with Red Cross or even buy an impoverished family a goat through Save the Children. Check the charity’s history through the Better Business Bureau before donating.
eBook readers – Let him take his library anywhere with an eBook reader. Models currently on the market include the Amazon Kindle, Barnes & Noble NOOK and Apple iPad, which is a tablet but can serve as an eBook reader. Directly order book titles and download them to the device in about 60 seconds. Newspaper and magazine subscriptions are also available, along with free public domain titles.
Auction items – Score a hard-to-find trinket or an easier-to-find one at an ideal price. Search eBay and shop the Buy It Now section to guarantee a purchase or wait to bid on auction items within the last hour to secure them.
Sports event tickets – Help him live out his sports fantasy from the stands. Nab tickets to a game with his favorite team. Check his availability first and order them through an official event-affiliated website like Ticketmaster. Join in on the fun and tag along to bond over the competition. Avoid sticky financial situations by using a secure Internet connection for payment transactions.
Magazine subscriptions – Whether his interests lie in sports or news, find a title that will fit his needs or provide some new reading material. Some websites specialize in discounted magazine subscriptions. However, magazines’ websites often offer special gifts with the purchase of a subscription that may make up for the price difference between it and a discount website.
