Father’s Day is almost upon us, and Dads are about to receive gifts from loved ones to celebrate the occasion. Most will accept them, grumble appreciatively and go back to their yard work, but for others, the day brings a bittersweet ambivalence.

These men, all of middle age, have a sinking feeling that their best years are behind them. That life is passing them by. In other words, they’re suffering from midlife crisis, and no necktie or pair of socks will lift this funk.

Such a man needs something to invigorate his spirit and telegraph to others that he is still possessed of all the virility and fecundity of “Smokey and the Bandit”-era Burt Reynolds. And it can’t be something with a modest price tag, such as tickets to see Journey perform “Don’t Stop Believin’” on their current U.S. tour.

Here are some high-end products, services and experiences for that special someone going through that all-too-common time.
