Gift Guide for Dad

fathersdaytypewriter

It’s almost that time again – Father’s Day! We have some ideas to help you score a big win in the gift category.

The CC LED Spot XB Spotlight is great for any dad. We’ve had folks buy it for night time walking, camping, working under the house or to keep in the car. It’s bright, durable, and lightweight and makes an excellent gift.

If your dad likes sports or working in the garden, the CC Pocket might be the perfect fit. We hear about folks taking it to the baseball game so they can listen to the play by play on their radio. If gardening is more his speed, we’ve developed a kit that includes the CC Pocket,and noise blocking headphones with an optional chest harness.

When nothing but the best will do, the CCRadio-2E is the right choice. This is our top performer for long range AM reception. The voice focused audio on this radio is superb and will have him thanking you for years to come.

Still not sure what to buy? A gift certificate allows your dad to get what he really wants. No re-gifting or hurt feelings.

If you need any help with a recommendation, please call us and we’d love to help you pick out the right gift for that special dad in your life!

Gift Guide for Dads and Grads

Tis the season to shop for some of the most important people in your life. Your dad (or husband) – the man you can never figure out what to buy for since he’s already bought everything for himself. Your graduating child or grandchild who thinks the world of you but may not share your taste in gifts….

We have some ideas to help you find the perfect gift.

An emergency radio that has a built in flashlight – what a great way to show you care. Make sure that they have what they need in the event of an emergency. Everyone thinks their cell phones replace a good radio nowadays, but we’ve learned (in some cases the hard way) that this just isn’t true. All circuits busy anyone? Phone died and the power is out, and your car is floating down the river? We’ve heard stories like this, and more, where radio is the only way they know what’s going on – and the CC Solar Observer can charge most cell phones.

The Senta Ally Bluetooth speaker with FM Radio is always well received – We can’t tell you how many employees here have given these as gifts to their dads, siblings and graduating family members. This speaker has a very broad appeal and is really easy to use. They are in work shops, on kitchen counters, and out in the garden. The only limitation is your smartphone’s apps or your playlist. It also has a replaceable, rechargeable battery.

Have a gardener in your life? Get them the garden noise blocking headphones – This may be more geared for dads, although Jessica’s younger brother has found great use for this with his smartphone in the wood shop. The planer is just too loud! Bob’s gardener uses the kit with our CC Pocket radio regularly while weed eating out in the yard.

The Super WiFi Repeater System will allow anyone looking to extend the distance from their router by repeating the signal. Great for apartment complexes and dorm rooms where the signal might not be so great or for offices in the back of the house that are too far away from the router.

If you’re in a house where your political views (especially this election year) and thus taste in talk show hosts are as far apart as you being a vegetarian and him being a cattle rancher, a pillow speaker could be your best investment ever. We can’t help you with your differences in the kitchen, but this lovely little piece of equipment allows him to listen to his preferred stations in bed, and you don’t have to hear it. It also works great for audio books.

Still not sure what to buy? A gift certificate allows for them to pick whatever they prefer.

If you need any help with a recommendation, please call us and we’d love to help you pick out the best gift for your loved one.

Gift Guide for Dads and Grads

giftguidedadsandgradsShopping is supposed to be fun, but when it comes time for Father’s Day or Graduation Day, we know even the most savvy shoppers are often left wondering “What the heck do I buy this person?” C. Crane is here to give you some suggestions for the man in your life who might seem to have everything or the graduate who seems to need everything. 

Ideas for Dad

CC Skywave – Great for the traveler. It’s small and portable, with excellent overall performance, an intuitive layout and great sound for the size. Easy to stash in a carry on or take to the ball game. Covers AM, FM, Shortwave, Weather (with weather alert) and Aviation Band.

CCRadio-EP – Perfect for when less is more. Larger radio with a flip up handle. Analog tuning dial, great AM and FM reception, clear sound from the large speaker with separate wide and narrow audio control. No clock to set or memories to program, just turn it on, tune the dial and listen. External AM antenna jack.

CCRadio 2E – For the man who wants it all. The top of the line digital radio with extra bells and whistles. This is the best radio we have for AM Reception and it also has really good FM reception as well. Audio tuned for clear voice. 5 one touch memory presets per band, clock, alarm, sleep timer, programmable timer, separate bass and treble. Weather band with WX alert. External AM antenna jack. 2 Meter HAM band for emergency listening. 

CC Pocket – For the man on the go. Small, lightweight pocket radio with excellent reception for its size. Your dad can listen through earbuds or the built-in speaker. AM/FM and Weather with Alert.

Garden Noise Reduction Headphones and Radio Kit – For the man who does it all and wants to listen to his radio while he does! Kit includes the CC Pocket Radio above along with Noise Reduction Headphones and a made in the USA harness is also available to keep the radio in place while working around the house or weed eating in the yard.

Pillow Speaker – This may be more for your Mom :). Allows your dad to listen to his favorite radio show at a volume level that doesn’t disturb the whole house (sorry we can’t help with snoring).

Ideas for Graduates

Senta 40 Headphones – Awesome set of headphones that are a great value for the money. If your graduate is more interested in sound than in a brand name these are the right set of headphones for them.

VOZ Wooden Earbuds – A favorite among staff and their families. Great sound, comfortable to wear and the no tangle wires are such a relief.

Senta ALLY Portable Bluetooth Speaker – Great for listening to a favorite smartphone app using Bluetooth. Whether working out or sitting by the pool, it makes listening to any audio from a Bluetooth device so much better. Also works with SD cards, USB or direct line input. Bonus – it has a replaceable battery!

Super WiFi Repeater Kit – May come in handy in the apartment or dorm room. Allows you to pull distant WiFi signals into your computer, smartphone, tablet and more. The best part is there are no drivers to install!

If all else fails a gift certificate is pretty safe. Our C. Crane Amazon store has a lot of stuff and depending on your recipient, it may make more sense to give them one from there. Especially if they have a Prime Membership, they can take advantage of their Prime Shipping options if they are enrolled. 

No matter what you choose, we hope all of you have a fantastic Father’s Day!

For those of you with loved ones or acquaintances who are graduating – Congratulations! What a fantastic way to kick off summer.
