25 Gift Ideas for Dads who don’t want another pair of socks or cufflinks

Father’s day can often leave us stumped for gift ideas because our dads either 1.) Never want anything, or 2.) Already have everything.

But for all the times he drove you to the mall, sat through your piano recitals or soccer games, for all the goofy dad jokes that always made you crack a smile even on your worst days, and for the endless list of valuable life lessons— it goes without saying that our dads deserve the best.

So when a pair of socks or another ‘best dad’ novelty mug just doesn’t cut it, this dad-approved gift guide has something for every type of dad (even the infamous hard-to-buy for fathers).
