That go-to tie you buy Dad for Father's Day is like a poorly mixed cocktail: It lacks good taste, and it's hard to swallow. Mix up your routine this year, and give him something a little more palatable with this deal from the eco-friendly SPARQ Home: Pay $9 (regularly $20) for nine finely crafted soapstone whiskey rocks (shipping not included). Stick them in the freezer for a bit, and then toss a few into a couple inches of your favorite whiskey -- or any cool adult beverage -- and enjoy a chill that will take away your drink's bite without diluting its flavor. Non-porous, odorless, and tasteless, soapstone does not react to household cleaners, and will hold their temperature for an hour or more when frozen. With dulled edges that won't scratch your glass, these stones can also be heated in the microwave to keep coffee and tea warm -- so no matter your pop's beverage of choice, this gift will go down smoothly.
