Father’s Day weekend is again upon us. Growing up, my dad was always the hardest to shop for. I couldn’t always tell what he would like and if he did like it, he had a tendency to buy it for himself. This week we’ll look at some mashups that might help spark some ideas for those dads that are hard to get gifts for. The mashups include a little something for every dad out there including beer, hiking, golfing and movies. Read below for more details on each. ProgrammableWeb would like to wish a Happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there.
