The YouBrew by Breville

For a family full of coffee-lovers, making an entire pot of black gold can be a tricky proposition. Between brew strength and flavor, preferences can be all over the place. In the past, we have been forced to resort to routinely adding water to batches too potent for the tongue, all in the name of keeping the peace. But with Breville’s new YouBrew, each cup, travel mug and carafe can be finely tuned to the drinker’s preference. It allows users to tailor individual brewing by strength and flavor, all while ensuring the right taste every time with beans fresh-ground to the optimal size for each cup. $279,

These kid-tested, kid-proof and kid-approved hand shovels are built to work like the real thing. Designed by a former excavation contractor, these hand-powered miniature backhoes promise hours of fun on the beach or at home in the sandbox. Better yet, let your little helper try one of these when you tackle your next great mulching project, and you’ll be sure to have more than a little help. $18,


Exotic Driving

Give dad an experience he won’t forget with a racecar trip around Texas Motor Speedway. Dad can pick from many exotics available and take six trips around the track with a professional racecar driver instructor passenger-side to give tips and feedback. Packages start at $169 for the pure sportscar excitement of the Porsche 997 S all the way up to $419 for the Car and Driver car of the year Ferrari 458 Italia.  Drivers can also purchase in-video and photo souvenirs, apparel and extra laps as part of their packages. Sessions must be booked well in advance, but Dad will certainly appreciate a gift card on his special day.
