It's not your father's Father's Day. This year, consider a variety of unique gift choices to appeal to every kind of modern dad.
For the outdoorsy dad
Whether he is golfing, fishing, camping, hiking or gardening -- the outdoorsy dad's greatest summertime nemesis is insects. Yet many outdoorsmen and gardeners think twice about slathering on synthetic, man-made pesticides. This year, give Dad a less invasive, more elegant option: BugBand wristbands, whose natural vapors repel mosquitos, flies, gnats and more.The wristbands are reusable up to 120 hours, and come packaged in reusable plastic "pods." They are available in summery colors (including genderless choices such as red, yellow, light and dark green, blue, even a glow-in-the-dark version) and can also be fastened to belt loops, hatbands and the like. One of many BugBand natural insect repellent products (including sprays, towelettes and diffusers), the wristbands are available at retailers across the country ($4.95) and at www.bugband.net.
