We know how tough it is to find that perfect gift for Dad. This year, bypass the usual suspects and go for something a little more exciting. Here’s our guide for the gifts that Dad is sure to love, whatever type of man he is.
The Grill Guru
If your dad is the kind of guy that loves to cook over an open flame, no matter the weather, we’ve got the gear he needs to keep on grilling. Choose from an assortment of accessories, like a Weber grill tool set, or the Traeger Chicken Throne—which will help him perfect his beer can chicken.
Any man serious about his spirits will tell you that the right tools make creating—and consuming—a craft cocktail a more enjoyable experience. Stock Dad’s bar with some freezable glasses, Moscow Mule Mugs, or a sleek stainless steel cocktail shaker and let him channel his inner mixologist.
Does your dad get giddy for gadgets? Well, then we’re guaranteed to have something he’ll love. Help him up his game with a Razer gaming mouse, and tune out all distractions with some Bose QC35 headphones. Or, he can play it loud, through one of our favorite portable Bluetooth speakers, the Bang & Olufsen Beoplay P2, while controlling the tunes with his AppleWatch.
The Athletic Dad
Whether Dad’s a dedicated fit freak or you’re hoping to encourage a newfound appreciation for activity, the right tech can make working out so much more enjoyable. Help him monitor and reach his goals with a Fitbit activity tracker. Listening to a workout playlist through a pair of Bose Bluetooth headphones will keep him motivated—or opt for the Sony Bluetooth running headphones, which have a music player built-in. And if Dad is the kind that often goes off the beaten path, a GoPro Hero Session will record all of his adventures, in even the most harsh environments.
The Stylish Dad
If your dad’s the kind of guy who’s never owned “dad jeans” (or if you’re trying to get him to dump his) a few of the right accessories will add incalculable cool to his getup. You can’t go wrong with pair of classic Ray-Ban Aviators, or a retro-inspired watch from one of the hippest brands in the business, Shinola. And, of course, every man needs a quality wallet. The Tumi Chambers Billfold—handcrafted from supple goatskin—looks great out of the box, and will only get better with age. Kind of like Dads.
