The Moustache Mug celebrates 14 of the world's most celebrated mustaches and the men that made them famous. The moustaches of Mark Twain, Lao Tzu, Leon Trotsky, and Groucho Marx are just some of the great mustaches featured on this cool and quirky mug. For extra fun, each moustache is numbered. Try to guess who each mustache belonged to, then check the bottom of the mug to find out if you're correct.

2. Chi-Ha Tank Metal Earth 3D Laser Cut Model - $14.99
The Chi Ha tank was built by Mitsubishi and designated the CHI-HA. It used the Mitsubishi air-cooled 170 horsepower diesel engine and was regarded as the best tank that Japan had produced during World War II. The main armament consisted of a single 57mm gun mounted in the turret and supported by two 7.7mm self-defense machine guns. These amazingly detailed DIY models start as 4" square steel sheets and finish as amazing 3D models. Use easy to follow instructions to pop out the pieces, bend the tabs, and connect them at the attachment points. Build your collection today!

Iconic John Wayne is captured in this 2 Deck Set of playing cards in a collectible tin.

4. Darth Vader and Son Book - $14.95
In this hilarious and sweet comic reimagining, Darth Vader is a dad like any other—except with all the baggage of being the Dark Lord of the Sith. Jeffrey Brown's delightful illustrations give classic Star Wars® moments a fresh twist, presenting the trials and joys of parenting through the lens of a galaxy far, far away.

5. Mini-Golf Book - $12.99
This Extreme Desktop Mini-Golf set is perfect for everyone—if you love the sport or hate it—you'll love this extreme desktop version. The set includes two golf clubs, a ball, five card putting challenges, and a how to play book. The book shows you how to set up the putts so you can start practicing the gravity-defying loop the loop and get your score down on the complete course challenge. Start a tournament with your friends, photocopy the tournament tables in the back of the book, and liven up even the most boring days. So, whether you're at work or at home, just clear a desk ... and tee off!

6. Labrador Pale Ale Art Wall Sign - $12.99
Decorative Plaques are a ready-to-hang version of printed art. We take the printed page and encapsulate it between a UV blocking sheet of vinyl and a 3/8 inch thick sheet of MDF wood. We then finish it off with a decorative beveled edge and a keyhole hanging system. Once finished, this decorative plaque can hang in any indoor environment—from kitchens and baths to man caves!

If you love Star Wars, the Funko 6-inch tall Darth Vader Galaxy's #1 Father? Wacky Wisecrack Bobble Head is either the most sincere or best ironic gift for dad this season! This collectible bobble head is molded in plastic, with painted details bringing out the sculpting of the outfit and classic helmet. It's packaged in an open front displayable box. Add to your Star Wars collection today!

8. Jeff Gordon Notecards - $8.99
Enjoy taking notes with these Notecards featuring 4 time NASCAR Sprint Cup Champion, Jeff Gordon and his #24 DuPont Chevrolet! Each notecard set includes 10 cards and 10 envelopes.

Out of these far-out gifts, I received the Darth Vader Father Wacky Wisecracks and the John Wayne 2-Pack Playing Cards in Tin. My husband is both a fan of Star Wars and of westerns, so both items were splendid for him. The John Wayne 2-Pack Playing Cards feature different depictions of John Wayne. The two sets of cards can be stored in a tin that also featurs John Wayne. They make a regular deck of cards look boring!

The Darth Vader Father Wacky Wisecracks is a plastic bobble head with the words 'Galaxy's Best Father' brightly shown. Darth Vader proudly sports a #1 Dad blue ribbon. The first thing that comes to mind is "Luke, I AM your father". (Haha, I crack myself up!)

Father's Day is just around the corner, and Calendars.com has a nice inventory of unique gifts for the special dad in your life.
