Honestly, buying gifts for my dad is one the toughest things to check off on my to-do my list. What do you get for the man who wants nothing and needs nothing!? He is the type of person who just buys anything he needs. This obviously makes things a lot harder for me as a gift-giver. But if for you, it’s the other way around, props to you. My dad (and I’m sure yours too), already has enough socks, polos and shaving kits to last his lifetime. But we all can agree on one thing: Dad definitely deserves something heartfelt, something he’ll actually use—even if it is a little cheesy. I’ve rounded up the best gifts you can get for every dad on your list.
