I never know what to give my husband for
Father’s Day…

Our husbands have it easy. Moms are so easy to please… just give us a gift certificate to the local spa and you’re good to go.

But finding a good gift for a man can be tougher. With business casual dress taking over the office, the old fall back gift of a tie has lost its charm.

casio-waveceptor-140.jpgWell this year, I got lucky and I’m sharing that luck with you.

Casio solved my problem by sending me one of their Waveceptor timepieces, and they’re going to send one of you a watch too! If you’d like Casio to solve your Father’s Day gift dilemma, leave a comment and let us know. We’ll draw one lucky winner.

But you don’t need to wait to win, you can pick up a Casio Waveceptor timepiece at Kohls. This particular watch retails at $99.99, but there are a variety of great watches ranging from $50 to $200.

This watch turns out to be a perfect gift for my husband since he doesn’t have a daily wear watch. He only owns a rather fancy watch that he doesn’t feel comfortable wearing everyday.

This cool and techy watch is a great match for him. He can enjoy the high-tech time calibration that several times a day receives the official US government time via a time calibration signal from the atomic transmitter in Ft. Collins, CO. I know he’ll love the sound of that!

He’ll also like that he never needs to adjust the calendar because it has a perpetual calendar that adjusts for month to month inconsistencies and Leap Years. And he doesn’t have to worry about taking it off when we take the kids swimming since it has 100M water resistance.

So, this year I’ve got Father’s Day covered. Thanks Casio!

Remember, if you think your hubby would like one of these Waveceptors, let us know. We’ll draw the random winner on Wednesday, June 4th, so the winner can (hopefully) receive it in time for Father’s Day. And if we don’t draw your name, just pop over to Kohls and pick one up.

This giveaway is open to US shipping addresses only.

    My best friend, who just happens to be my ex-husband and the father to my three oldest children is a school bus driver, he has a cheap watch he’s been wearing and could really use a nice watch for his job! I’d love to get this for him.

  2. says

    My husband isn’t expecting anything for Father’s Day, this would be a lovely surprise! He also owns a fancy watch he refuses to wear, it would be nice to give him a watch he will use. Plus when he hears the watch is calibrated to the official govt. time each day, he’ll be impressed!

  3. Julie S. says

    What a great gift idea for the hard to buy for husband! My ‘outdoorsy’ husband would be thrilled with this!

  4. Sharon Jones says

  6. Theresa Shafer says

    “several times a day receives the official US government time via a time calibration signal” is perfect for my high tech guy, who is just a toy loving boy at heart.
    Thank you for hosting.

  7. Tracey Byram says

  15. Mark O says

    i have had a great deal of Casio watches over the years, but i have gotten away from the dial face style and have limited myself to digital readout…it would be a step back in time for me to go with this watch and perhaps wake up my brain in order to learn again how to read time….i would really love to win this

  16. joanne117 says

    My husband lost his watch about 6 months ago when the band broke. I would love to give this to him.

  17. grubmama says

    This Father’s Day happens fall on my husband’s and son’s birthday. He has the greatest birthday present a father could want. I know that my husband would appreciate this watch.

  18. Erica says

    My husband is a musician/artist and a computer lover. You can imagine that the things that make him smile are NOT cheap. And since that musician/artist is the worship pastor of our church and not a recording artist, and since I’m an unpaid SAHM, it’s tough to keep up those habits. But this watch isn’t too frou-frou for him and it might actually work! Thanks! Erica, gumbi1313 at msn dot com

  19. says

    This would be the perfect gift for my husband. He loves watches, and just like yours, only has a nice watch that he doesnt feel comfortable wearing every day. So this one would be perfect. Please count me in your giveaway.

  20. says

    My husband would love this! He likes watches that are kind of large, but don’t look like he got them in junior high! :-)

  21. Holly B says

    I would love to win this, my husband just graduated from college so it would be a great gift for him!

  22. says

    I know my husband would love this–it would be perfect for him to wear on days that he didn’t want to wear his more dressy watch. Thanks for the great contest!

  23. MARY ANN says

    Casio makes rugged watches–you couldn’t break one if you tried. My guy LOST his! This Waveceptor would make a fine replacement, AND I PROMISE HE WON’T LOSE THIS ONE!!!!!

  24. kelly n. says

    Awesome watch!

    It would be a wonderful gift for any dad!

    Wow – my husband would really like this! Thanks for offering it!

  28. Diana says

  29. Jenn in AZ says

    This looks wonderful! My husband’s watch just died and he needs a new one. He loves Casio and needs a second “hand” on it for work.

    I love Kohl’s too…got my coupon and goin’ shoppin’ soon. :)

  30. Lachelle says

    My husband is always looking for cool new watches – this would make a perfect Father’s Day gift for him!

  31. Cindi says

    Hello, This watch has my husband’s name written all over it. He doesn’t need a dress watch and his only one is so old and decrepit looking. I like that it can connect to the atomic clock in Colorado. Please enter me in your fabulous drawing. Many thanks,Cindi

  32. michael courson says

    My son just found out he’s going to be a first time dad, and it would be a great gift for him. Since my amputation, I haven’t been able to give him anything, since I’m now living on disability.

  33. Megan B. says

    My husband would love this! Much like your own, he wears fancier watches to work, but it would be great if he had an everyday watch to wear on his off days. What a great gift, thanks for the contest!

  34. Renee says

    My husband would love a watch for Father’s Day— especially a water-resistant one, since he never remembers to take it off before swimming.

  35. Teri Meairs says

    This would be perfect for my son-in-law for his first Fathers Day! He is the proud father of my first grandchild!

  36. says

    Fabulous! I never know what to get. I usually have the kids make something, and then buy clothes or something…which is never what he wants. This would be great! Thanks :)

  37. Donald Robertson says

    This watch would give me no excusses to be late but I would still love it just for the tech angle.

  38. Tiffanie Wright says

    This is the perfect manly durable watch I need to get for my husband. He goes through his rather quickly. Would love to give this one a go.

    It would be tough to give this up to my husband. I’d really like to wear it myself! Very cool.

  40. Kathy Scott says

    Great watch. My soon to be middle schooler has informed me that he really needs a watch for school. Thanks for the chance.

  41. says

    My husband would love a nice watch, but I’ve never been able to afford to by him one that lasts. He’s a pastor and I know this watch would be a great everyday watch for him. So count me in on the drawing. Thanks!

  42. Janice Golden says

    My Daddy has had a really hard year this year this would make a great fathers day gift for him

  44. priscilla haynes says

  45. Jill Miller says

    We don’t have any kids and we just got a 3-legged dog, which is our new “baby” — this would make an awesome “Father’s Day” gift for my husband from Zeke, the little doggie!

  46. Katharine says

    This would be great for my husband, he hasn’t had a watch since our toddler flushed his last year.

  47. Christine says

    I would love to give this to my husband for Father’s Day because I think he is the best Dad. Thank you so much!

  48. says

    My DH would LOVE LOVE LOVE this watch!!!

    He is always so hard to get something for. I’m tried of getting him a “shirt and shorts” or even better “tools” he never uses.



  49. Candie L says

    You could be saving my father’s day dilema. I have not even started thinking about father’s day. I usually have the excuse that our son was born on father’s day and his birthday is also around that time, so I do not have to buy him anything (but that will only work for so many years).

  50. Karen M says

    My husband asked for a watch for his birthday in March, but I got him something else. This would be a perfect Father’s Day gift for him. Thanks.

  51. Ashley H. says

    I’ve been looking for the perfect Father’s Day gift for my Step-Dad and this is totally the perfect gift!! Thanks so much for the great contest!

  52. Nicole Price says

    My husband would love for me to win this. His old watch accidentally got dropped into the toilet by our 2 year old. He takes my iPod to work with him now so he can keep an eye on the time. This would be great for both of us because I really miss my iPod. :)

  53. william johnson says

    Voice from the other side of the coin the watch looks great and would be a great gift to any man for fathers day or any day that’s special ! Peace

  56. Virginia Murr says

    Yes, father’s day presents are a huge dilemma every year! The title of the contest cracked me up. I would love to be able to give this to my husband, who is a very worthy father.

  57. Vickie Couturier says

    Oh yes,My husband would love this too,he needs one badly,his just broke,so please add me too,thanks

  58. Marisa Moore says

    I have the same problem– I never know what to get for my husband! He doesn’t like me to spend money on him.

  59. Mary says

    This is exactly what I need to give since he’s always late. With a new watch, he won’t be able to use that same excuse!

  60. AnneMarie DeRemer says

    My husband needs a nice watch! Father’s day is coming and then it is our 15th anniversay on the 26th. This would make it memorable!!

  61. Judy J. says

    At last, the perfect watch for my husband who insists on accurate timekeeping! Thank you for the opportunity!

  62. Michelle H. says

    My husband also needs a daily watch to wear after work, when he is working around the house.

  63. says

    My husband could really use this, he never spends more than 15 dollars for a watch because he feels it’s too selfish, even though I always ask him to buy himself a GOOD watch! This would be wonderful to give him! Thanks for another great giveaway!

  64. Lynda C says

    My husband doesn’t even own a watch right now. I don’t know how he can stand not knowing the time.

  65. Regina Sandifer says

    My hubby would LOVE this ! He’s a watch nut! He has @ 12, and this one would be a gift from me. I hope I win!

  66. Pamela says

    This is the perfect watch for my hubby. He likes having the analog face and has to have the alarm, etc. functions. Most of the watches that fit the bill are so ugly, but this one is beautiful!

  67. Diane D. says

    My boys would love to give this to their father for Father’s Day. Thanks for the opportunity to win it! :)

  68. Heather Curtis says

    What a wonderful gift this would be to my husband! He loves sporty watches and I just know he’d go crazy over this.

  69. Darlene M says

  74. Sherri Siler says

    This is the type of watch my husband likes. I bought him a nicer watch from the jewelry store I work in but he never wears it. I know he would love to have this.

  75. says

    My hubby and I were just browsing watches on Saturday… what good ‘timing’ you have! 😉
    (Bad I know. I couldn’t resist.)
    God bless-

  76. says

    My DH doesn’t wear a daily watch right now either, but I think he’d really like this one with all the extra gadgets!

  77. says

    My husband and I do not have children of our own. We have been raising our two nieces for 13 years now. I can’t remember the last time I bought Tim something. He needs a nice watch.

  78. Clifton Wade says

    I would just LOVE to have this watch. I work in construction and my watches never work correctly!
    Thanks for all the great contests!

  79. Tamara Straughn says

    My husband could really use this watch for work. He is a mechanical engineer and needs a “smartly styled industrial” watch for when he is in the sterile rooms of the pharmeceutical company he works for.

  80. Lori says

    Believe it or not my husband just broke his watch two days ago, and it’s just not in the budget to get him a new one yet…this would be awesome!!!!

  81. Kim says

    I had no idea what to give my husband this year but this would make the ultimate gift! I would love to win it.

  82. Deb says

    My hubby really could use this. Were slowly replacing his wardrobe & getting him some quality items he needs. His ex thought his clothes & personal items needed to be “cheap” garage sale clearance items. I swear she waited till it was closing time, & offered a quarter for anything that came close to maybe fitting or he really needed like a watch.
    Would love to win this to give to him for Father’s Day, it would be soooo great, thanks for the opportunity!!!

  83. Elizabeth Ray says

    My husband tends to be hard on watches, so he could really use a good one that can stand up to his daily use!

  84. Joanna Smith says

    This watch is perfect for my Husband Hudson! We live in Upstate New York on Lake Ontario and Hudson is either in the water with the kids or sailing all summer long and he does NOT own a Waterproof Watch! He will wear this every single day and be so thrilled with it! Thank you for offering this terrific giveaway from Casio!

  85. Monalisa C. says

    My old man doesn’t own a watch and this would really be a nice surprise. Thank you for this opportunity to win this beautiful prize.

  87. kristan Anderson says

    My hubby would love the day off, sleeping in late, breakfast in bed, and a beautiful new watch to count every minute with!

    Thank you!

  89. John says

  90. Donna Baldwin says

    My Dad just lost his watch 2 months ago when it fell off his arm while casting his rod fishing for bass. The clasp broke and down it went into 30′ of water. So I know he would absolutely love this watch and would be a great Fathers Day Gift.

  91. Brian E. says

    …thanks for the contest; I had a Casio for about ten years until it finally gave up the ghost recently while I was swimming. I like this new model with automatic radio calibration via the U.S. atomic clock.

  92. Dorothye Abramson says

    This would be a great replacement for the watch that the washing machine destroyed. My husband said it was my fault for not checking the pants pockets. However, who would put a watch in their pocket anyway. I would like to win the watch. Is it water proof?

  93. Jennifer B says

    I never know what to get my dad, other than his usual package of socks and underwear that I get him every year. This would make a great addition, and a lovely surprise for him too!
