Treat Yourself: Top 5 Single Fathers' Gifts for Themselves

Let's face it. You work very hard to maintain a home, earn a living, insure your children are happy and healthy, and maintain a social life for your own mental health. That's no mean feat. So, at the risk of compromising the second among my list of Top 5 Financial Blunders Guys Make During Divorce, which is "Make an Extravagant Purchase," treat yourself, Old Man, with a holiday gift that is equal parts practical and frivolous, but is 100% something you'll use and enjoy. After all, who knows you better than you? If you have the time, the space, and the financial means, here are a few great ideas for self-given gifts:

1) Homna Beres Japan S-02 Fairway Wood - Take strokes off your score with this shallow back designed fairway wood that lowers gravity height, optimizes gravity angle, and gives a better grip to average golfers for better trajectories.

2) Precor EFX 5.37 Premium Series Elliptical Crosstrainer - Bring the fitness club experience home, with our top-of-the line premium EFX® 5.37. With more pre-programmed workouts, User IDs and features than our other models, the 5.37 offers you the most variety and workout tracking tools. The patented low-impact motion is smooth and natural, making your workouts more comfortable and enjoyable. Your heels remain in contact with foot pedals, reducing muscle and tendon stress.

3) VIZIO 65" 3D Edge Lit Razor LED LCD HDTV - Winner of Popular Science's Best of What's New 2011, Theater 3D is advanced, flicker-free 3D that's better and brighter than conventional 3D. I can personally vouch for VIZIO quality. I bought a 50" VIZIO plasma television almost seven years ago and the picture quality is still razor-sharp.

4) Great American Eagle 8' Pool Table - Get your "Fast Eddie" Felson on with the The Eagle Series Pool Table by Great American, which combines a classic look with outstanding durability and has been made in America and made to last since 1990.

5) The Single Father's Guide to Life, Cooking, and Baseball - Okay, this is a little self-serving considering I wrote the book, but it's well worth the investment. Combining anecdotes, sports metaphors, baseball quotes, and "Single Father Golden Rules," The Single Father's Guide to Life, Cooking, and Baseball will not only help to make you a better parent, but will also help you find time to enjoy some of your other gifts!

Happy holidays, and check back regularly for more holiday shopping tips and other ideas!
