By Shane McGlaun

The other day my son learned a valuable life lesson, one of those lessons that every guy learns at one point in life — girls get nicer bathrooms. One day he will learn another valuable life lesson — dads have to act like they love what you give them for Father’s Day even if it sucks.

This year don’t give dad something that sucks, Walmart has a few specials for dad’s day that any dad would be glad to get. If dad doesn’t have a Blu-ray player he would love to get the Magnavox NB500MGX Blu-ray player Walmart is offering for only $128 and you can pick up some Blu-ray movies two for $20.

So you must move from the clothing section to the gadget section.

It will still be a delicate art to find the perfect gift for your dad. The gift giving process for father’s day is like a dance… well maybe something more manly. Let’s say the process is like a wrestling match between the heart, the mind and the wallet to find a gift that will stay out of the garbage bin for at least a month, evoke a good feeling in dad and leave us some money for our own gadgets (shame on you for smiling at this).

So I’ve made a list of the good and the bad to help you find a gift for your dad. Find them all, after the jump.
