2014 Father's Day Gift Guide

Last Minute Father’s Day Gift Guide

Gifts You Can Pick Up Today!

At Tool Skool, we don’t endorse one big box store over another, but we realized we’ve been so busy this year, that we’d not put together a Father’s Day Gift Guide.  So we took a stroll through our closest home improvement store, which happened to be The Home Depot,  and came up with a list of gifts you can walk right into the store and pickup today.  So, get going!  Get Dad a great gift!

Gifts Under $25

Does Dad like to get out and be active?  Or does he overheat when he works in the yard?  Then give him the gift of being cool.  Arctic Cove Cooling Towels or the Arctic Cove Bandana are both ways to stay cool.  All you do is run them under cool water for a minute and the special fabric keeps Dad cool much longer.  They can be used over and over.   37” towel ($9.97) or a bandana ($3.97).  For more info: CLICK HERE
