8 Father's Day Gift Ideas For The Couch Potato Dad!

Before you freak out and frantically check your calendar, don't worry, you still have time. But not that much! Father's Day, for all you forgetful sons and daughters, is Sunday June 20th this year, and if you've been too busy marathon-ing all your favorite shows on Sidereel to come up with a decent gift idea, we've got some for you! If your daddio loves his favorite shows as much as you do, he may be interested in some TV-themed gear, from tees and caps to mugs and bobbleheads. And of course, there's always the option of a DVD gift set -- especially if it comes in a sweet package. Check out our 8 gift suggestions for the TV addict Dad, complete with links for easy purchasing (procrastination is no longer an excuse):

1. Lost Encyclopedia

If your pops is already going through Lost withdrawals since the series finale last month, this "encyclopedia" is the perfect collector's item for a true fanatic. Just make sure he doesn't bring it with him to the bathroom, in case you're hoping to skim through it too at some point!

2. The Office Bobblehead

If Dad is a hardcore fan of The Office, make him feel like one of the gang with a Dwight Schrute Bobblehead (or any character, for that matter!) to place on his desk at home or at his own office!

3. The West Wing: The Complete Series Collection

The West Wing is a total dad show, right? If your old man was a huge fan of the multi-Emmy-winning show, he'd probably love this complete series DVD set. It's a perfect summer marathon show when he's not too busy barbecuing, playing catch, or whatever it is dads like to do during the summer...

4. Sons of Anarchy T-Shirt

Your dad not be much of a rebel nowadays, but now that you're all grown up, I'm sure he still has plenty of stories about all the trouble he used to get into in his "heyday." Help him relive his days as a wild child with a Sons of Anarchy tee.

5. Curb Your Enthusiasm Mug

If your dad is the wry Larry David type, he might find humor in this clever eco-mug while he waits for the next season of Curb Your Enthusiasm. Plus, you'll be doing him the extra favor of helping him be more green!

6. Friday Night Lights Panther Cap

If your dad prefers Friday Night Lights football over the real-life teams he has lost faith in, help him show off his Panther pride and TV addict nature with a panthers cap!

7. Breaking Bad Soundtrack

Breaking Bad is a pretty darn addicting show, so chances are if your dad is hooked, watching the show isn't enough to get his fix. The soundtrack is a must-have for any diehard fan. Plus, it's much more "manly" than the slightly more popular Glee volumes, but that's an option too, if he's into that...

8. iPad

Okay, clearly this idea is just for the really generous kids (or maybe if you have like 7 siblings who all want to pitch in), but I couldn't help but include the gift that all dads are dying to get, just in honor of Phil Dunphy from Modern Family! Plus, what dad wouldn't love to have the chance to watch his shows on the go?
