Happy Father's Day!

Where I come from, we don't really celebrate Father's Day. But I don't think there's a reason my dad wouldn't love the idea of it. Here are my top 5 picks for Father's Day gifts. I only have 5 because: 1. I honestly don't think there are other gifts out there that could beat these. 2. I'm swamped with work and have 1,001 things to do today.

1. Treat him to a weekend getaway, whether it'd be a golf outing, relaxing spa therapy, tour to the wineries, white water rafting, or even healthy gambling, take your pick.

2. Get him this lounge chair & ottoman by Herman Miller, available from Room & Board. Trust me, it's as comfortable as it is gorgeous. It also comes in white.

3. Take him to Megu Japanese Restaurant in New York City for some serious real men treats: meat. Their Kobe beef come in carpaccio, skewers, stone grill, slow-cooked, or sashimi style, among many others. Want something fancier? They have a 9-ounce chateaubriand with few different choices of flavor. If you don't live in New York, any place that specializes in meat such as a churrascaria would be a good option.

4. Keep him within your reach, give him an iPhone 4G so you can "see" each other through video calls. Ordering one might be a little bit of a hassle right now but still, who has the heart to say no to this pretty little thing?

5. If you're more like me, meaning none of the above options fits your budget, or/and your dad lives on the other side of the world, this last option would be your best bet: cards with sounds! Yes, a paper card with your handwriting on it. I know it's cheap and can be slightly cheesy. But guess what, it's also very sweet.
