BEST OVERALL GIFTS FOR DAD:
1. Wireless Smart Lighting Dimmer
Is it just my dad or do they all love anything involving cool technology?
This wireless lighting dimmer allows you to dim your lights, schedule your lights to turn on or off, and so many other cool things all from your phone. I know my dad would obsess over this!
2. Ugg Moccasins
Dad's love lounging around the house with a beer in one hand and the TV remote in the other. Get them a pair of slippers so that they can be extra cozy when lounging.
You honestly can't go wrong with anything from Ugg so these Ugg moccasins would be a great gift for dad.
3. Bombas Socks
I have not heard one bad thing about Bombas socks. Whenever I ask for gift ideas for any guys in my life, everyone always recommends these socks!
Bombas also donates one pair of socks to homeless shelters for every pair sold, so you're also doing a little good when gifting these 🙂
4. Lululemon Workout Gear
I don't know about you, but my dad could definitely use some trendier shirts. Lululemon has great athleisure and basics that will elevate your dads wardrobe. I think many of them need it 😉
These are great for those casual days or working out, whatever your dad does he'll love wearing this around!
5. Cashmere Scarf
For those that live in colder climates, layering is imperative to staying warm in the winters. A good quality scarf is a great investment for any man to have.
This is something that will last your dad years to come, and will help him step up his style game!
6. Record Player
This is less than $55!! I feel like turntables usually seem really expensive. I spend right around $50 on my dad for Christmas and his birthdays and love this as an idea.
7. Brooklinen Sheets
For the dads that just love to be comfy, these sheets are it.
Everyone raves about these sheets but it's definitely not something parents think to purchase for themselves. Your mom and dad will thank you for years to come now that their bed feels like Heaven!
8. Apple TV
If you don't have Apple TV, it's one of our favorite TV accessories. It makes streaming your favorite TV shows so much easier, browsing YouTube, listening to music or podcasts, etc.
If your dad is an Apple product user, this is a gift he will love.
THOUGHTFUL GIFTS FOR DAD:
9. Sports Jersey of His Favorite Player
For the sports fanatic, gift a jersey of his favorite player. This shows that you care and know him well. Basketball, hockey, baseball, football - there are so many options!
10. Custom Desk Calendar
This is a gift I get my dad every single year and it's always his favorite one. Save the best photos from the last year - ones from trips, with family or friends, etc. - and add them into a desk calendar and it's the perfect thoughtful gift for dad.
I also love this gift idea because it's affordable but is also much more personal than many other gift ideas.
11. Airbnb Giftcard
An Airbnb gift card is perfect for the dad that loves to travel or just needs a getaway. This allows him to choose where he want to go and on his own time but also something he would've never asked for!
12. Personalized Bobble Head
I just think this gift is so funny. For the dads that love a gift that puts a smile on his face, this is it!
I can already picture my dad putting this on his desk and work and cracking up at himself every morning lol also a great conversation starter!
13. Personalized Song Lyric Vinyl
Does your dad have a special song with the kids or his wife? This is the perfect thoughtful gift for dads that love music or feel attached to a special song. I guarantee this will be a tear jerker.
UNIQUE GIFTS FOR DAD:
17. Whiskey Subscription
A subscription box is one of my favorite gifts to give because it's truly the gift that keeps on giving since you get something every month!
For the whiskey lovers, a whiskey subscription is such a fun gift. Share the experience of a distillery tour tasting right at home.
18. Coffee Tasting Set
My dad is a hardcore coffee addict. Like, you don't want to talk to him before he's had his daily morning cup. He loves trying out new brands and flavors, so this coffee tasting set would be a hit for him!
For the coffee addict, any kind of coffee assortment would be a genius gift idea.
23. Wine Bottle Insulator
For the wine connoisseur, a wine bottle insulator will keep his white wine chilled for hours, so he can enjoy a crisp glass without worrying about it being warm.
24. Dad Jokes Book
Is your dad the king of dad jokes?! Get this book full of dad jokes so he can up his game!
25. AirPods Leather Case
If your family is anything like mine, a few people have AirPods so it's super easy to get them switched up with another family member's.
Gift your dad a cool AirPods case, so that he can distinguish his AirPods from others AND look hip.
Keep your dad stress free with a massager. This one has deep tissue kneading nodes and heating to help relax tense muscles and ease your stress.
He can bring this anywhere with him too! Put it on at work or while watching his favorite sports team.. he could be relaxing anywhere he needs to.
27. Running Shoes
For the active dad, you can't go wrong with a new pair of running shoes. Again, these On Cloud running shoes I've been seeing everywhereeee. Definitely the running shoe to have this season.
28. Breakfast Sandwich Maker
I mean, what dad wouldn't love to receive a breakfast sandwich maker!? Make weekend morning breakfasts even better with this amazingly delicious gift for dad.
29. Burger Press
A burger press makes it easy to create the perfect homemade burger. This is an affordable gift option that's amazing for the dad that loves to cook (or needs a little extra help!)
30. Franklin Barbecue: A Meat-Smoking Manifesto [A Cookbook]
Another cooking related gift, but we're here for it.
This Franklin Barbecue cookbook is filled with recipes to make delicious meat. If your dad loves to grill out, this would be an easy gift that he'll definitely use (and hopefully you can benefit from too lol).
BEST GIFTS FOR DAD WHO HAS EVERYTHING:
This is a gift that dads just don't know they need.
Masterclass is a platform with online classes by the best of the best. Experts share their best tips and teach you how to do what they do. From world renown chefs, to professional athletes, there are so many teachers and classes to choose from!
If your dad is fairly active and is serious about keeping his body healthy post-workout, a Theragun is a gift he will use again and again.
This is definitely a pricier gift so make sure that it's something he'll use but it's truly amazing and makes your muscles feel so good!
35. FabFitFun Subscription
Did you know FabFitFun had a men's version?! The FabFitFun subscription box will be a gift he'll obsess over, guaranteed. It's basically a subscription box that comes 4x a year with full size products of the best in fitness, wellness, home, and everything in between.
This is such a great gift because you can customize it to what he likes and you get so much for your money.
36. Harry's Travel Shave Kit
Harry's has some of the best razor for men. Treat your dad to an amazing shaving experience with this Harry's shaving travel set.
39. TicketMaster Giftcard
Some of the best presents are experiences. A gift card to Ticketmaster is a way to gift someone an experience of their choice.
They could get tickets to a concert, sporting event or a show of their choosing. I love this idea especially if you don't know exactly what they want or when they're available.
40. Cooking Appliances
Does your dad love to cook? Or maybe wish he was better at it? Then get him a new cooking appliance!
I recommend an air fryer to everyone because I'm obsessed with mine. You can make so many things in it, it really does so much.
However, there are a ton of cooking appliances that are great for cooks:
41. Beer Insulator
Another insulating gift.. but this time for beer!
I don't know anyone who actually enjoys sipping on a room temperature beer, so this prevents that from happening! This can fit a beer can or bottle and also has a bottle opener.. truly it does it all.
45. Gift Card to Favorite Restaurant
Experiences are even better gifts than any material item that we've listed.
Purchase a gift card to your dad's favorite restaurant and allow him to treat himself to a nice meal that he doesn't have to pay for!
