Helicopter Rides NewYork Helicopter Tour
If you live near a large city or if you're planning a holiday and want to surprise your boyfriend or husband on the trip, you might want to consider a helicopter ride over a nearby city or beauty spot.

Fly-fishing School

They offer fly fishing lessons from the basic fundamentals to advanced techniques, and topics including the essentials of fly casting, tying knots, choosing gear and tackle, as well as proper fly selection will all be taught.

Atomic Watches
A new twist on a traditional gift.

An atomic watch is a wristwatch that is radio controlled to keep the most accurate time on earth. You never need to set the time or date of an atomic watch because it receives a low-frequency radio signal nightly that keeps it in perfect synchronization with the U.S. Atomic Clock in Colorado.

When you change time zones you usually have to do that manually, (although apparently it's quite simple). Accurate and rugged, these watches should please any man!

Instrumental lessons
It's never too late to start learning a musical instrument. A guy I know was given a set of guitar lessons by his wife which he loved.

It was something he'd always wanted to do but never had the time.

Has your husband or dad mentioned that he's always wanted to play the saxophone,drums, guitar etc? Well either splash out on the instrument themselves - you could rent it - or organise some lessons.

My Dad by Anthony Browne
This book by Anthony Browne is a magical, timeless book that should move any father.

A perfect present from a son or daughter.
