Dad's Day

Forget the tie. We sought out four unique gifts under $100 from around the state that Dad will really love, then asked dads in the office which one they'd be happiest to receive.

Elvis Robe and SunglassesThis is definitely for the retro dad with a sense of humor. This super-soft black robe has leopard print details, an Elvis silhouette and signature on the back and "Elvis" written in gold on the lapel. What really takes it to the next level are the gold Elvis-style sunglasses. Retro Planet has plenty of less flashy - but still cool - Father's Day gift ideas on their website. Cost: $59 for the robe and $8.99 for the glasses.

And the winner is...

N.H. Craft BrewsMake your very own six-pack at Bert's Better Beers for the dad who loves a good craft brew. We chose all N.H. beers from the Moat Mountain Iron Mike Pale Ale to the more experimental Nyx American Black Ale from White Birch Brewing. Does Dad love IPAs? Stouts? You can make any theme six-pack you can imagine. You'll also find an impressive array of mead from the Moonlight Meadery and the newer Sap House Meadery. Cost: $45, but prices will vary depending on the beer.
