June is one of those killer months for gift-giving. Dads ... grads ... two of the hardest groups to shop for.

Let's face it-finding a Father's Day gift that's not booooring and stereotypical (tie, check; cologne, check) is no easy feat. And aligning what a high school or college grad wants - with what he or she really needs - can be as tough as capping that oil well in the Gulf of Mexico.

This gift guide tries to bridge the gap between fun and functional, from colorful no-iron shirts (at Bloomingdale's) to a classic summer suit (seersucker - not just for old preps - at Saks Fifth Avenue). Tech geeks will feel their hearts rrrrev once they start dragging and clicking with Motormouse's Porsche. And if you're willing to invest some serious dough, you'll find a golf ball like no other (Tiffany & Co.), a television set with plenty of wow factor (Toshiba) and the most stately, stunningly priced watch (Chopard) - ever.
