What father or soon to be graduate wouldn't want to wake up and find a shiny new Porsche in the driveway? Unfortunately, for most of us, that's just not going to happen. However, a Porsche related gift is great for your Porsche loving dad or grad. With graduations happening across the country and Father's Day only a few short weeks away (it's on June 17th this year if you need the reminder) here is a short list of different Porsche gift ideas for you to choose from. For even more ideas be sure to check out last year's list of Porsche Gift Ideas. You might also find inspiration in our 8 Most Popular Porsche Gift Guide.

Porsche Design Executive Genuine Swiss Army Knife
This Wenger Porsche Design Executive Genuine Swiss Army knife boasts a distinctive design with smooth Ruthenium handles (a rare transition metal found in the Platinum group that is inert to most chemicals. In other words, it should last a long, long time). It offers 12 convenient functions with a pen blade, a micro screwdriver, springless scissors with a serrated, self-sharpening design, a screwdriver, a cap lifter, a wire crimper, and more.
We're big fans of most any thing from site sponsor Porsche Design Driver's Selection. However we really fell in love with the Martini Racing Collection. Not only do these product look great, resplendent in their famous livery, they make up some of the more affordable and functional gifts in the entire PDDS collection. As of today, we have the Martini Racing Belt, Aviator Sunglasses, Beach Chair, Swim Trunks and Beach Towel. In fact, over the summer I think John wears the belt almost daily.
Membership in the Porsche Club of America. I'm always amazed when I meet a fellow Porsche owner who has yet to join the PCA. The benefits are great and at $46 a year it's very inexpensive. For those who don't yet own a Porsche, but aspire too (think recent grads) the PCA Quest program is worth a look. If for nothing else, the low cost of membership (Quest or regular) gets you a subscription to Panorama Magazine, one of the best Porsche Magazines available today.
Last, but definitely not least, how about a subscription to one of the many great Porsche Magazines available? In the US you have Excellence: The Magazine About Porsche and 9Magazine. From Porsche themselves you can get Christophorus. And, if you feel like spending the money, you can get a subscription to one of the more popular UK Porsche magazines like 911 & Porsche World.
