100 Gift Ideas for Dads

From Manly Diaper Bags to Artisanal Tool Boxes

— November 25, 2015 — Lifestyle
These gift ideas for dads will help you cross one of the trickiest people off of your holiday shopping list. Dads are notoriously tricky to shop for, which means that many people resort to buying traditional gifts such as neckties and shaving kits. These gift ideas provide some more creative options for the hard-working man in your life.

For expectant fathers or those with young children, why not give a gift that will help them be more involved with their kids. For example, there are daddy daypack carriers that allow fathers to take their child out for an adventure. There are also fatherly playtime kits that provide dads with everything they need to keep their kids entertained.

For older dads whose kids have already left the nest, there are a number of gifts that can be used to indulge in beloved hobbies. Whether the dad on your list is a sports fan or more of an armature craftsman, these gifts are sure to inspire some creativity. Some hobby-centric gift ideas include customized handyman belts, rustic cocktail kits and self-tracking golf balls.

With so many options to choose from, these gift ideas for dads are sure to please even the fussiest father.
