Designer Dad Reveals His Father's Day Wish List

If being a dad of 7 doesn't entitle you to a great father's day gift then it must at least qualify you to make a few good suggestions. Add to the equation, the mad design-cred of Robert Novogratz and you've got yourself a list worth taking a peak at. 1/2 of the NYC-based design team, The Novogratz [wife, Cortney being the even prettier 1/2], Robert was nice enough to send over a few items off his own Dad's Day Wish List, to help inspire some gift-giving. This must have been written somewhere between preparing for the August 4th, Season 2 premiere of their HGTV Show, "Home By Novogratz," a full plate of Summer design installations and baseball practice. I remain baffled and in awe. PS: Don't miss their recent NYC LIST!

  2. The Music Man: Update Dad's Music Collection GotyeSHOP THE PICKSI'm a little old-fashioned and still a CD man [because you can burn it to your computer or put it in the car].
