So what do you actually get the uncle who already has everything? Not to mention he’s just basically a way cooler version of your dad, right? Shop our picks below.
A wise man once said, “An uncle is like your dad, only way cooler.” We believe that wise man was George Washington, but we can’t be entirely sure. Either way, truth be told your uncle is pretty much the best and it’s time to show him your real appreciation with a thoughtful gift or something funny at least. The point is, just get him something.
Believe it or not there aren’t really a ton of uncle-related gifts out there. You’re pretty much stuck having to shop online, but that’s where the best stuff is. We researched a variety of on-trend categories like tech, grooming, fashion, and alcohol and, guess what? Some of the most popular picks for uncles were based in booze. We’re ok with that!
