My girl got me the book The Dangerous Book for Boys
. It's a pretty cute book with lots of random crap in it for boys, like how to tie knots, make a battery, read a compass, build a go cart and how to build a bow and arrow and then kill a rabbit and skin it and cook it. It also has sections on famous battles, amazing adventures, and the seven wonders of the ancient and modern world. As well as info on trees, insects, basic geography, and the solar system. Theres even some basic grammar lessons in there...I really wish somebody would have gotten it for me like 20 years ago.
All daddies should get it for their sons.
Favorite gift? Cash money to help with the cost of converting my Impala from drum to disc brakes.
