I usually have a pretty difficult time shopping for my dad because he has everything. If he wants something, he’ll just go get it for himself so over the years I’ve learned to get very creative with my gift-giving. I typically get him something from his favorite show or something for the kitchen because he loves to cook.
Trust me, your dad doesn’t need another tie or pair of cufflinks. You could give him a photo of you, and he’d be happy. But instead of doing that, here are 12 gifts that will make your dad a cool dad:
This will help your dad be more wise, which will hopefully help him be a more understanding dad for you!
Make Your Own Hot Sauce Kit
For the dad who likes spice in his life. Whether or not your dad cooks a lot, this seems like a fun activity. Dads like to make things.
My dad always tells me to be prepared because he is always prepared for anything. Dads should be prepared, which is why a pocket multitool is a great gift.
Dads always need socks. You might feel like socks aren't a good gift, but dads love socks so get him some cool socks.
Stinky Popcorn Candle
Your dad will love making his office or mancave or whatever smell like popcorn. Who doesn't love popcorn?
Because your dad is super!
Does your dad always lose stuff? Mine always loses his keys! Seriously, he thinks we hide his keys from him. So get your dad Tile. You attach it to whatever you might lose and you can use the app to find it.
World's Okayest Dad Mug
For the dad who has a sense of humor. Probably don't give this to your dad if you think he's just okay.
For the bearded dad who is always complaining that his beard is itchy.
Otterbox Phone Case
Because your dad probably won't get himself a phone case and then will be mad at you when he shatters it after you said "You should get a case."
Jack Black Hand Healer
My dad calls lotion "dry skin cream," which isn't wrong, but it's funny. Most dads aren't as into skin care stuff so they're not taking care of their skin and hands. Make sure your dad takes care of his hands by getting him some legit hand cream.
Top Dad T-Shirt
It's guaranteed your dad has seen and loves Top Gun so he will certainly love this Top Dad shirt.
