Father's Day is right around the corner, and many of us are scrambling to find the perfect gift for the Dads in our lives. I don't know about you, but I like giving gifts that reflect the recipient's needs or personality. After all, you wouldn't get a tie for a guy who never, ever wears a suit. (My husband doesn't even own one!)
Luckily, you can find the best gifts for ANY Dad at Best Buy! Sure, they've got tons of great electronics, movies and music, but did you know they've also got gifts ideal for entertainers, fitness buffs, and even the Dad who is obsessed with the latest and greatest gizmos? And that's just the tip of the iceberg, folks!
If I had to categorize my quirky husband, I would definitely have to say that he's a Gizmo Guru. He loves anything tech-related, and is also very much into video games. Oh, and of course every time he sees a television that's bigger and more loaded with features than ours, he stops and drools for awhile. It's kind of pitiful, really.
One gift Dan would absolutely love for Father's Day is the LG 60" Class LED 1080p 240Hz Smart 3D HDTV.
This TV is SO much nicer than the 46" Samsung we have. Don't get me wrong, our TV is really, really nice. It is a few years old, though, and certainly doesn't have all the bells and whistles that this LG has. The larger size and 3D technology are things my husband has been drooling over for some time.
Here are some of the features of the LG - 60" Class (60" Diag.) - LED - 1080p - 240Hz - Smart - 3D - HDTV:
60" screen measured diagonally from corner to cornerFor optimal viewing in large rooms.

If the Dad in your life is a memory maker, entertainer, or fitness fanatic, you can find some amazing gift ideas at the Best Buy Gift Center.
There are also plenty of gift options under $100, and even under $50!
My favorite gift under $100 would have to be this olloclip 4in1 Lens Kit for the Apple iPhone 5/5s.
I just got a brand new Apple iPhone 5s, so I am kind of drooling over this myself! I know...I know...This is all about the Dads. Maybe my husband needs one and I can just borrow it. Wait. He doesn't have a cell phone. Oh well.
Anyway, be sure to check out everything that Best Buy has to offer when shopping for Father's Day gifts. They have free shipping on qualified orders, and of course they also offer their famous low-price guarantee.
What personality type are the Dads in YOUR life? Are they shutterbugs who always take pictures? Sports men, perhaps? Or maybe he's the King of the Grill? What gift will you be giving this Father's Day?
