To get started, check out the "10 Great Gifts to Celebrate Dad" free online gift guide at RadioShack.com/FathersDay. The guide also links to options in 12 categories including Music & Audio, Cell Phones & Accessories, Fitness & Health, and Hobbies & DIY.

Not sure which gift is best? Consider dad's hobbies and summer plans for a gift he's sure to love!

  • For the music lover: Grab the new AUVIO PBT1000 Bluetooth Portable Speaker. This sleek, powerful box is sure to take barbecues up a notch as it wirelessly plays dad's summer soundtrack ?even when there are no outlets in sight. It plays up to 13 hours of music on a single charge and doubles as a portable power source.
  • For active dads: Get dad in on the digital fitness trend with the BodyMedia FIT LINK arm band so he can track his activity while he plays hoops with the kids or heads out on a run. In addition, Klipsch S4 Headphones are perfect for playing to music or podcasts while running, hiking or biking. They come with three different sizes of washable eartips for just the right fit. Plus, dad can wash these bad boys after he puts them to good use.
  • For the outdoorsman: Portable power is a must have for the outdoors. Whether camping, at a baseball game or hunting, the Enercell 3000mAh Portable Power Bank gives dad up to 10 hours additional phone charge, eliminating the worry of being far from an outlet.
  • For the kid at heart: RC lovers love RadioShack, where you can give dad hours of fun with the RC Stealth Flyer Indoor Helicopter or other popular remote control options.
  • For the maker dad: Upgrade dad's DIY workshop with the RadioShack 60-piece Electronics Tool Kit or ColdHeat Soldering Tool.  If dad needs something specific to finish a project, no place offers such a convenient selection of do-it-yourself electronics supplies for every skill level.
  • For summer travel: dad (and mom) will appreciate being able to plug in a laptop or DVD player for sanity-saving entertainment the whole drive with an Enercell 150W Power Inverter. For more travel tech suggestions, read the "Top 5 Travel Tech" post on RadioShack's techspecs blog.

Giving a gift from RadioShack also gives you a little something to enjoy later. Earn $10 back when you spend $30 or more at a participating RadioShack or online through June 29, 2013. (Some restrictions apply. See store or online for details.)

These products and more are available at local RadioShack store or at RadioShack.com.
