8 Unique Gifts for Dad

Sharing is caring!

gifts for dad

Dads are so hard to buy for. They either don’t tell us what they want with the classic response, “I’d rather you not spend MY money on ME,” or we just have no clue where to begin when it comes to shopping for them. So, here are 8 out of the box Christmas gift ideas for Dad this year!

bottle opener

Does Dad love baseball? We’re sure he’ll love this game used bat bottle opener. It is literally made from a specific team’s (of your choosing-but it’s limited) bat that was used in a game. Check out these awesome bottle openers by Bottle Breacher too. They are sure to be a favorite in the Man Cave.

dad's grooming set

I’m not sure why, but us ladies sure do love a good looking beard. Keep up Dad’s grooming with a quality shaving or grooming kit from The Art of Shaving.

Flying Lessons sign

Learning keeps us young so why not get him lessons of some sort. This is great present for any father who wants to learn how to cook specific foods, how to improve his golf swing or, you know, fly a plane.

engraved necklace for dad

Get sentimental. This is an awesome gift to get the kids in on. Have them draw Daddy a picture or just sign their names and keep it forever!

credit card engraved

Every man needs a place to keep his money. Get him a wallet with a special engraved note from the kids hidden inside, or if you want a longer message, get an engraved “credit” card.

spatula for king of the grill

It may not be grilling season right now, but when it is I bet he will enjoy showing off his personalized spatula.


Dad in need of new shoes? Design him his own CUSTOM Converse shoe!


Do you have to buy for more of an outdoorsy man? Besides the ever faithful Cabela’s gift card, these Remote Controlled Heated Insoles may be just what they need!

Hi Lauren,

i love the ideas you posted but my dad is more of a fashion, dressy suit everyday type of guy.

i bumped into these cufflinks and was wondering if you think they're a good idea? and what color would be best?

Brilliant!! The heated insoles are a wonderful idea for my father who spends countless hours during the winter shoveling and plowing. Thank you!
