If you’re like me, then you find shopping for your dad almost impossible. It’s one of the trickiest gift-buying holidays. When he needs something, he usually buys it for himself, and there are only so many shirts and funny ties that one person can receive in their lifetime. With that said, I did a little research this year and I’ve scoured the web for some great goodies & even got a couple friends to weigh in on some of these to make sure they’re guy-approved! We’ve found 18 gifts for all kinds of dads, so click through to check out our roundup.
