You could buy Dad a massage. Or a chair. But why not get him a twofer in this robotic recliner that’ll work him over from head to toe? He can experience full-body, partial, and fixed massages in six styles–rolling, kneading, clapping, shiatsu, Swedish, and combo. Five levels of speed and intensity, plus three kinds of width-adjustable settings, assure Dad will be one mellow fellow.

Float Levitating Table

Sort of like a huge Rubik’s Cube with the structural integrity of a marshmallow, this squishy table will keep Dad fascinated for hours.
