This is so cool! It’s an awesome interactive map that allows you to scratch out countries while you travel. It is written on a black matte backdrop with gold foil, and the countries scratch off as different colours. It features a neat infographics segment along the bottom with each countries flag!

7. Easy Function Grill Scraper
PERFECT for: Barbeque-loving dads who you want to keep safe.
Starting Price: $19.75
You might be thinking, why would I want to give my dad Grill Scraper? Well my young Padawan, a few years ago grill enthusiasts were advised to give up their grill brushes with wire-bristles. The problem was that the sharp bristles may be left behind on the grill and eaten along with any cooked burgers, sausages, or other food. And this may pose a major health threat. You don’t want that, don’t you?
So, if your dad is still holding on to his old wire brush, replace it with a lightweight but strong wood grill scraper. It will get his grill clean, make it much easier to scrub old food off and keep him safe!

This pick punch helps Dads to make his own brand-new picks from old credit cards, room keys of hotels or any other durable plastic. To get him started it also comes with a supply of colored plastics. I think you should pick this one!
