Father’s Day is almost upon us, and some of us are still scrounging to find the perfect gift. If the man in your life is business-savvy, we have list of gifts he’ll love as he travels from meeting to meeting, works around the office, and relaxes with the family — and, they’ll go the extra mile longer than a razor and shaving cream.
For the Business Traveler

Any dad who travels and owns an iPad will love this case equipped with a Bluetooth keyboard. Instead of having to transport a laptop everywhere, it simplifies travel and eliminates the heavy weight of a laptop.
Carpenter Bag, Wood&Faulk, $139
Go the extra mile and show you’re thinking of dad by replacing that old, tattered briefcase he has been lugging around for the past decade with a bag that’s a little more modern, such as Wood&Faulk’s 16-inch Carpenter bag.
Olympus Digital Voice Recorder, Best Buy, $99.99
If dad’s work entails meetings, interviews or lectures on-the-go, a digital voice recorder is a helpful business tool. The recorder stores 1,000 hours of recording time and will save him the memory space on his smart phone.
For the Family Man
8-inch Digital Photo Frame, Target, $60.99
For the man who has everything, give him the gift of memories with a digital photo frame. Load an SD card with pictures, slip it in the photo frame and his favorite memories will scroll across the screen without cluttering his up his desk and office.
