Jeezum crow, if you're going to suggest socks at least make them Darn Tough. http://darntough.com Made in the US and guaranteed for life. Yes I wore some out and yes they replaced them for free no questions asked except for my incredulous. "Really, I just go pick out a new pair and give you this old holy pair?".

Mr Wuffles, Long Distance Love & Sloth prints link all read $200. Hardly enticing to click the links!

Good thing they are really all under $30.

I believe I had the original "Moscow puzzles" (called "Математическая смекалка", or "Mathematical Wit" here).

Maybe this one should be given from father to son, but, yeah, I can testify that's a good book. Too bad that it wasn't republished in Russia, as far a I know (thankfully, downloads are abound).

I don't put them on my list. You can never trust them to get the right stuff.

I made my father's day gift months ago. I tied two classic Atlantic salmon flies out feathers from a turkey I hunted and harvested myself. It's really tricky getting the feather fibres (called slips) to marry together but the end result is something to be proud of. I've mounted them in a shadow box that my Dad can put on display for anglers and non-anglers alike to enjoy. I'd upload a picture but this new BBS thinks I'm a new user (even though it was able to find my profile picture from my old boingboing account from years ago) and won't allow me to upload photos.

Oh well, I guess rather than show off the gifts we've made ourselves, we should just buy something that BoingBoing endorses from this list of thoughtless, unnecessary doo-dads.
