What do you gift the dad that basically taught you everything and already has everything. We got your back!
Dads never seem to get enough credit, but we’re never not thinking about them and how great they truly are. They’ve taught us so many things, some of which we actually remember and use to this day. Some things he taught us, well, wasn’t actually factually accurate or even legal for that matter. We love him regardless.
So what are you to get the father who pretty much already has everything and uses none of it? Whether you’re looking to get him something for his birthday, Christmas, Father’s Day, or just want to pick him up a little gift for no reason at all we’re all in to help!
There are some really interesting options out there for dad, many of which we don’t think he actually thinks he wants, but will end up loving. So we’ve come up with a dad-tested and dad-approved list for you. Shop our picks for the best gift ideas for your dad in 2021.
