Father's Day Gift Guide: Great Gifts for All Budgets

Father's Day is just 10 days away -- June 15 -- so get crackin! Here are a few ideas for Dads this season:nikon_lenspen.jpgThe Bronze Dad: Nikon Pen Lens Cleaning System - $5.77
You don't have to have a Nikon to use this lens-cleaning pen. It's easy to carry around with you and the instructions are simple. First brush debris off your lens with the brush tip and then use the fabric tip to get rid of smudges. If you're interested in a more comprehensive system, check out Nikon's Complete Lens Cleaner Kit.gorillapod.jpgThe Silver Dad: Joby Gorillapod Flexible Tripod - $21.95
We love this miniature tripod -- and not just because it looks like a creature we can befriend. It's compact for easy portability and oh so versatile. Attach the Gorillapod to rocks, benches, maybe even a dog (DogCam!) and you'll be able to capture timer shots and long exposures without worrying about the safety of your camera.kodak_SV710.pngThe Gold Dad: Kodak EasyShare SV-710 Digital Picture Frame - $79.90
We recommended this frame for mommies too. Kodak is one of those trusted brands folks gravitate to, with good reason. We recently reviewed the whole Kodak line so be sure to check out the post if you're interested in a bigger screen or wireless capability. The SV-710 plays MP3s, video (MOV, AVI, MPEG) and has a variety of on-frame capabilities (editing, browsing, albums) as well as a remote, slideshow templates and programmable on/off settings. It also features PictBridge, which allows you to print directly to a printer without using a computer. Styling is traditional--comes with a black frame but you can purchase another faceplate to change the design. And be sure to look into Kodak's preloading feature.mustek_ipodframe.jpgThe Platinum Dad: Mustek PF i700 Digital Picture Frame iPod Dock - $122.95
Since we know you got Platinum Dad an iPod last year, how about a digital frame and iPod dock this year? This 7-inch frame from Mustek charges your iPod and plays it, all to the photos and movies of your choice. Remote control controls both frame and iPod. It's a great idea. Why have to load audio to yet another device (your digital picture frame) when you can just stick on your iPod?
