You might consider brightening your father's life with a tripod flashlight from Stanley. When dad is under the sink or car, he won't need a second set of hands to help him out. The rotating head makes it easy to point the light.
"When you get up to leave, the tripod folds up nicely and it carries like a regular flashlight," said Todd Kent, Good Housekeeping.
And when dad's done under the car, he can take this Black and Decker Auto Pivot Vac to clean the inside.
"This hand vac is unique because the nozzle pivots. It also extends so you can get into al the nooks and crannies. In our Good Houskeeping Institute test, it picked up nearly every speck of dirt," Carolyn Forte, Good Housekeeping.
The most unique gift of all might be a robotic gutter cleaner -- the iRobot Looj.
And a baseball cap is more than just a cap. It has loops that will hold your earbuds. A velcro pouch for your money and a zipper pouch for your credit cards and keys.
