Have you ever noticed that all the Dad Gift Guides on the internet are full of random useless crap that will collect dust for years? Well, it’s time to step up to the plate and get dad something awesome. Let’s face it, most dads have worked their butts off all year for their family and now is the time to get him an awesome gift to say, “Thank you!”
No, these gifts aren’t cheap – but they will get used for a long time. I am a believe in paying the extra dollar for quality goods that will last a lifetime. The best stuff can take a beating, ages well and gets used constantly. How much better would you feel as a wife or child when you see your husband or father really appreciate their gift constantly? Of course, you would love it. On to the gift guide!
YETI Tundra 45 Cooler
Dads like beverages. Dads like keeping things cold. Whether dad needs a place to keep some frosty beers or a place to keep the fish he caught on the lake, this is the cooler for him. The brand YETI is the best game in town for keeping things cold. In fact, they should change the name YETI to One Badass Cooler. This will make dad happy and is the kind of gift that every dad needs. You know he will love it.
New Microsoft Surface Pro 6
If your dad or husband is a work-a-holic and always on the go, do him a favor and get him the all new Microsoft Surface Pro 6. The Microsoft Surface Pro 6 is faster and better than ever. It’s great for long plane rides across the country, it’s easy to store, it’s light to carry and it’s all around awesome and super-powerful. Plus, dad will be so incredibly productive with his new Surface Pro 6 he will get his work done quicker and be able to spend more time with the family!
Allen Edmonds Strand Dress Shoes
Does dad need some new shoes for work? Look no further! Allen Edmonds are American Made in good old Wisconsin, PA. The premium calfskin leather and 360º degree Goodyear Welt construction are hallmarks of great quality. This is a great gift for dad and can be worn and resoled/recrafted for a lifetime of good looks. All men need a high quality pair of shoes and this is the perfect place to start.
Breville BES870XL Barista Express Espresso Machine
Coffee is the nectar of the gods when it comes to parenting. Throw away your cheap plastic one-cup coffee pods and invest in an espresso machine for your dad. This gift for dad won’t just make him happy (and give him more energy!) but you can order your Grande Mocha Skinny Latte from him whenever you want. Plus, this machine will be the talk of any house party you throw.
PlayStation Slim 1TB Console + Extra Controller
Every now and then, dad needs a break. Nothing has been entertaining dads better or longer than the Sony Playstation. Plus, the Playstation comes with a ton of other great features and apps – including Playstation Vue which lets you watch streaming TV and sport easily. That makes the Playstation the perfect choice for cord-cutting dads. Oh, and I”m sure the kids will love it too.
Barbour Beaufort Waxed Cotton Jacket
Want to dad to look great and have him feel like James Bond? Barbour has been making waxed cotton jackets for a long time – and they are a must have for any dad. You can dress them up or down, they age magnificently and they are undeniably always cool. Plus, who doesn’t love tons of pockets to hold things when it’s cold outside? This is a great gift for dad and you will enjoy how much he loves wearing this jacket.
New Wayfarer Sunglasses by Ray-Ban
Ray-Ban sunglasses are cool. Wayfarers reek of classic style. The New Wayfarer Sunglasses by Ray-Ban fit and look great. With polarized lenses, the wayfarer glasses provide high visual clarity where they are worn. The sleek updated design of the classic wayfarer provide a slightly smaller frame and softer eye shape. Overall, these are a 10/10 for sunglasses that everyone will love.
Vizio 50″ SmartCast XLED 4K Television
Is there anything more iconic for a dad gift guide than a brand new television? I think not. Vizio is a great blend of affordability and quality. The picture is great and you can rest-assured you will have a great product to enjoy movies, TV and sports for a long time. Additionally, the 4K picture is incredibly clear and lifelike. Watching the opposing team’s quarterback get sacked has never been better!
Apple Watch 4 (Space Gray Aluminum with Black Sport Band)
I have seen guys replace their Rolex with the new Apple Watch. I love a great mechanical watch, but no watch compares to the innovation of the Apple Watch. Communicate with your wife and kids, track your fitness, check emails for work or listen to your favorite tunes – the Apple Watch has it all. Another quintessential dad gift for the holiday season. He will love it and you will love watching him wear it every day.
Dorset Decanter & Double Old Fashioned Set
If dad likes to have a cocktail after work or entertain on the weekends, this is a must-buy gift. For a guy who likes his scotch neat, the feel of a nice heavy glass is both comforting and refined. This decanter set will make dad feel like he’s in an episode of Mad Men when the three-martini lunch was still a thing. Never let dad go thirsty again after a hard day of work when this decanter set is full and ready for action!
