**DAY 17** 10 Gifts for Dad + Giveaway
Here are 10 completely different gifts for Dad! Whether your dad is a golfer, techie, softy, sports lover, or business man, there is something here that he will love!
1 – SensoGlove
SensoGlove is the first and only golf glove with built-in sensors that constantly read the pressure of your grip. Practicing with SensoGlove will teach you the correct grip pressure for a smooth, consistent swing that delivers greater distance, enhanced precision and lower scores!
Maintaining a lighter grip pressure is regularly discussed in every magazine and by all the professional golfers and teaching pros. The trouble is it’s difficult to learn exactly what they mean by a light grip pressure and most golfers end up swinging with a death grip. SensoGlove’s built-in digital computer actively monitors your grip with sensors placed strategically throughout the glove, providing instant feedback at all the points of your swing. SensoGlove’s audio feedback warns you at the moment your grip becomes too tight, allowing you to learn and maintain correct grip pressure at every point of your swing. Everything about your swing is affected by the way you hold the club! SensoGlove will teach you the best grip for every part of your game! The SensoGlove is available in several sizes for either hand and retails for $89. It can be purchased on the SensoGlove site or specialty golf shops around the world.

5 - ZAGGkeys Profolio+ Black (Apple iPad 2/3/4th Gen)
I should have added this to my list of “Gifts for Mom” because it is so awesome! The ZAGGkeys Profolio+ for the Apple iPad (2nd, 3rd, and 4th generation) is the top-of-the-line when it comes to keyboards. My favorite feature is the colorful light-up keyboard, but I’m sure dad will appreciate the technical side! Here is a product description for the keyboard that I am having a really hard time giving to my husband this Christmas :/ I guess I still have a few days to find something else for him so I can keep it!
Protect your tablet and take your work and play everywhere you go with the PROfolio+. Combining an ultra-thin, lightweight design with patented keyboard technology, the PROfolio+ is a mere .81″ thin and provides a complete mobile experience for your Apple iPad. Island-style keys provide maximum spacing in a compact Bluetooth keyboard for an authentic, relaxed typing experience. The keyboard’s open layout reduces fatigue during long typing sessions, making the PROfolio+ perfect for maximizing the utility and convenience of your iPad.
Its stylish polyurethane exterior provides a durable case that protects both the front and back of your iPad from dings and scratches. A clever magnetic closure secures your iPad to the PROfolio+, and activates your iPad’s sleep/wake feature to help prolong battery life.The PROfolio+ features an intuitive built-in stand that holds your iPad at an ideal viewing angle everywhere you go. It also includes customizable backlit keys that can be adjusted for brightness and power management, and that make typing in low light situations a breeze. Dedicated special function keys operate essential features such as volume control, copy/paste, play/pause, screen lock, search, home, and more, directly from the keyboard.

7 – Fat Daddio’s Bakeware
Fat Daddio’s has been “building better bakeware since 1968.” Their snack cake pans would make a great gift for dad! There are three different styles…Creme Snack Cake Pan, Sno-Cake Pan, and the DD Round Shaped Cake Pan. What dad wouldn’t love an unlimited supply of homemade Twinkies, Ding-Dongs, and Sno-Balls? My husband looks for Sno-Balls at pretty much every store we walk into! They are pretty hard to find, so I know he will be thrilled to get this pan, even though I will be the one making them! I am also super excited because now I can make my own special one without coconut! I always end up scraping it off so this will be perfect.
