Best Gifts for Dad
My dad isn't a complicated guy. He likes things to be easy, to-the-point, and cost effective. With that in mind, I rounded up a few things that my dad (and hopefully yours!) might like.
Since my dad retired, he has been a-travelin'. My parents recently returned from Siberia (yeah) and are already planning their next trip. To help facilitate cold-weather globetrotting, I would pick some warm gloves and a hat, and also a stylish but functional backpack.
Like many dads, mine is also super handy...or at least tries to be. To help him out, I think some new power tools are always a safe gift. Dad could alays use a new drill. I also saw the book The Art of Fixing Things and knew that it would be right up his alley. Also, to help combat that holiday food baby, and to get a jumpstart on the New Years Resolutions with a fitness tracker, like the Blaze, a watch from Fitbit. The last item in the do-something list is one I don't have a link to, and that's an experience. A fishing class, woodworking lessons, painting, maybe a course at a local community college...the possibilities are endless. Think about what's near you and what hobbies your dad likes. Maybe it's time to start a new one!
My dad is also a connoisseur of some of the finer things in life. This Christmas, it might be time to upgrade him to a better shaving kit, like this one from Harry's. My dad also likes fine liquor. I love this Homemade Gin Kit to customize your own blend. I got this for my boyfriend last year, and we made it together. It turned out great. But...if he's not the DIY type, maybe just pick something up. Japanese Whiskey is up-and-coming right now, so maybe choose something top-shelf from a brand like Nikka (linked below) or Yamazaki.
