Check out these ingenious bed spectacles for when you’re laying down, reading, or watching tv. Pop these babies on and dad will never strain his neck or back ever again.

These glasses tilt images at a 90-degree angle so that you can view them while lying horizontally on your bed or couch. Worn like sunglasses, you can wear this pair over your regular glasses because these do not magnify or correct images, they just tilt them.

Cooling Neck Wrap

This cooling neck wrap is perfect for the fun-loving outdoor enthusiast dad.

The Cooling Neck Wrap avoids chemicals, instead using Natural Evaporative Cooling (like your body does when it sweats). It features absorbent polymers that hold hundreds of times their weight in water which slowly evaporates, pulling heat from his body to cool him down

The KOOLGATOR’s unique slip-free snap fasteners keep him hands-free and focused, and the Stay-Put design avoids the need to stop or readjust, making this neck wrap perfect for hiking, sports, and outdoor cookouts
