An Ode to Dads
Keanna and I are not fathers, but we both have amazing Dads. Our dads taught us how to ride a bike, how to save for retirement, and how to treat women (or how a man should treat her in Keanna’s case). Like our mamas, we owe them the world. But the world is expensive. Plus, if your dad is like mine, he would be annoyed if you spend too much since he knows what is in your savings down to the penny. So what are we to do at Christmas??
Our Dads are the embodiment of “it is the thought that counts,” ie the amount spent on the gift matters far less than its’ usefulness.
We collected many items on Pinterest and are still adding more. We picked the best gifts and listed below. These are either: gifts we have given to our fathers, things our dads love, or special items that special men in our lives love….
Gifts For Dads Who Love A Good Joke
Funny Mug – My dad loves a good joke and for every occasion I get him a silly card which he loves.
World’s Best Farter, I Mean Father T-Shirt – My dad is a kid at heart and would love a good fart joke.
Gifts For Dads Who Love Golf
“DO YOU THINK THIS IS A GAME?!” – Papi yelling at me while I take my drinking game more seriously than my golf/bowling/any other activity. And yes, Papi, it IS a game!
Greg Norman for Tasso Elba Men’s Golf Bag – Gotta have a fly bag for all those clubs.
Personalized Golf Balls – I was on the fence about this. I think it would be good as like a parting gift for guests at my dad’s retirement party. But people spend a lot on golf balls they will never see again.
Arccos On-Course Stats Tracking System – Papi loves stats and math and self-improvement, so this would be a perfect gift.
Gifts for Dads Who Like to Look Good
I’m lazy and hated brushing my hair when I was a kid. My told taught me to do it daily since it is the first thing people judge you on. I cherish life lessons like these.
Luxurious Shave Kit (Bevel) – Not only is Bevel the only shaving system for coarse curly hair, but it was name-checked by Nas! “My signature fade with the Bevel blade.” And got a nice write-up in The New York Times. I got this last year for my brother and he loved it.
Nike Men’s Therma Training Hoodie with Logo – He can never have enough hoodies.
Polo Ralph Lauren Men’s Checked Twill Shirt – Nor enough dress shirts.
CAR SPA – Keanna got this recently for her pops and it was a huge hit. Who doesn’t love having a nice clean car without having to do any of the work?
Timberland Men’s 6″ Premium Waterproof Boots – When I was a kid, my brother and I always got Tims for Christmas. Now might be time for us to return the favor.
Gifts for Dads Who Love Toys
Dads are still boys, and boys love their toys. – Keanna
Protocol Terracopter Drone – Who doesn’t want a drone???
Amazon Echo – Black – Or a home automation system?
Sony MDRXB650BT/B Extra Bass Bluetooth Headphones, Black – This has to be the least sexy name for a product, but they work!
Fitbit Charge 2 Heart Rate + Fitness Wristband – Fitbit is slaying the game, but if your dad is an Apple fan, an Apple watch might be a good look.
Gifts for Dads Who Love A Good Time AKA Drinking
Favorite Spirit – Well, this is actually my favorite spirit, but you get the idea.
Personalized Whiskey Barrel – My friend Katrina’s Dad has something like this and he is obsessed.
13 Piece Beer Tasting Set – I like having the perfect glass for the perfect brew.
