Gift Ideas For Dads



People often ask me for gift ideas for dads. I’m glad they ask instead of buying their dad another tie or bottle of cheap drugstore cologne. Dads deserve better than that.

I always recommend that people share an experience with their dad instead of buying products. Spending time with your father is a valuable gift that will leave lasting memories. However, if you still want to honor your dad with a present under the Christmas tree, here are some of my favorite gift ideas for dads:

Grooming Gifts

1. The Art of Shaving Power Shave Set, 2. Every Man Jack Cedarwood Body Kit, 3. Dove Men + Care Products, 4. Panasonic Arc 3 Wet/Dry Shaver, 5. Bump Patrol Skin Care Products

  1. Reading down the lists I see categories I ‘should’ ask for gifts from (hardware, travel, grooming) and the categories I ‘actually’ want – Tech & Fitness! Am forwarding to my wife in hope… thanks for putting these together.

      • Well that’s the thing, my wife and I get so caught up getting for the kids, relatives, etc that it’s almost kind of an after thought “oh yeah – and what do I want?”. So I’ve asked for some workout gear cos what I currently wear is pretty 90s and falling apart! Do you have a list?
