Cool Gadgets & Gizmos for Dad


1. Uuni 3 Portable Wood Pellet Pizza Oven

uuni stainless steel wood fired patio pizza oven

(Uuni)

When I was first asked to test this unit out, I’ll admit I was more than a little bit excited, but not nearly as excited as my husband. That your first good clue that it’s a great gift idea for dad. This nifty little wood fired pizza oven fits right on a hard surface (not under your roof please) and heats up to nearly 1000 degrees in just ten minutes. That means you can whip out a wood fired pizza in a couple of minutes, or keep it going, and make several for family.

The packaging was impressive, and the easy to follow instructions for assembly were a snap. If you’ve ever put together a Lego kit, you can put together this oven. Made from stainless steel, the unit is beautifully made and it has already created lots of fun and interesting conversations because of it’s unique shape and look. Cooking your pizza is a tiny bit trickier.

Our first attempts were a colossal fail. But a quick note to the manufacturer resulted in easy to follow instructions that were more intuitive, and wood fired pizza will now be on our regular dinner menu, especially in the summer when there are so many fresh veggies to layer on top.

This oven runs off just a handful of wood pellets, which are fed into the hopper with an included scoop. It comes with a pizza stone and pizza peel, although a long handled pizza peel is a good accessory to go with this, because this little oven gets hot. It’s also a terrific price on a unit that doesn’t take much space, and it cooks lots of stuff fast, in addition to pizza, which means it’s a versatile tool and a great Father’s Day gift.

They’re the ultimate in retro, hip and cool, but their cool factor expands when you get a chance to check out their optics, which are wicked. I got a pair to try last spring, when they were first being released, and I shared them around with some of my guy friends, who agreed they’d be a dad’s dream on Father’s Day.

These glasses don’t just have a denim pattern, their frames are actually made from denim fabric. Mosevic takes discarded and damaged jeans, of all colors and weights, and uses the reclaimed fabric in their collection of solid denim eyewear. They transform these unloved jeans into sunglasses by infusing layers of the denim, with a carefully selected resin, to create Solid Denim. Denim is tough. Solid Denim is even stronger and it has all the properties needed to build high quality, tactile and striking eyewear.

The frames really are denim all the way through. Each pair of sunglasses is handcrafted process in their workshop in Cornwall, UK.

red and green bocce ball set

(Trademark Games)

It’s always good to play with your dad, so why not get him a toy that’s purely for fun? There’s no time like the present to get him a quality Bocce Ball set. This beginners set comes with four dark green and four dark red bocce balls, enough for four players or two teams of two, and one Pallino. Since few of our yards look like golf courses, the divots and undulations make the game even more challenging. (My grandson refers to this game as “heavy ball.”)

The entire set is enclosed with a durable carrying case to keep the game all together, and to make it transportable to any family gathering. Bocce Ball, one of the oldest forms of lawn bowling, is a game for young and old and makes for a perfect Father’s Day gift. Originating in Italy, Bocce Ball is wildly popular worldwide. A Deluxe 4-Player Resin Bocce Ball Set mixes it up with four different ball colors.
