Gift Guide: Gifts for Dad

We’re here to celebrate the Big Guy himself. No, we’re not talking about Santa! We’re making his holiday merry with these gifts for dad

Whether he’s helping to put together new toys, busy in the kitchen playing host to the whole family, or making sure all the wrapping paper gets picked up, dad rocks our world. They work super hard and consider their “down time” to be mowing the lawn (front and back!), detailing the car… They’re our rock and we know we can always go to them no matter what. Biological or not, these father figures keep our worlds spinning—but they’re also notoriously difficult to buy for. Finding gifts for dad is no small feat.

We made sure to put together a fabulous fatherly collection of worthy-for-our-hero gifts that go beyond the usual necktie or socks (not that there’s anything wrong with those!). From the grillmaster to the nostalgic, we’ve got every type of daddy-o covered. He really is the best, so make sure he knows it with these gifts for dad below.


Any dad would adore a personalized book of their favorite people (that's you). Using Mixbooks' intuitively designed editing tool and huge library of templates, you can create a gift he'll cherish forever!

You can even upload multiple photos to be combined into one portrait!
