Do you have “go to” gifts for the men in your life that you find yourself routinely giving for every birthday, Father’s Day, and Christmas? Shirts, ties, maybe a new wallet? Admittedly I always resort back to one of these old faithful types of gifts, and if you’re like me, you want to break up the monotony this year. Here are a few ideas to get your wheels spinnin’ and cross off a few special men from your holiday shopping list.
Gift Ideas For Dads, Fathers-in-law, and Brothers
Brush Hero ($34.99), this new tool is an outdoor “one stop shop” for getting things clean (especially cars and grills – wow). I’m planning to order several of these for some of my favorite guys, so I need to get on that today! Watching the above 1-minute video will show you exactly why every home needs one of these. He’s probably never heard of it before since it’s new, so you’ll get major bonus for thinking of such a clever gift!
6-Port USB Charging Station ($29.99), because between his work phone, personal phone, and iPad, his devices are always charging in different rooms. Give him this as the place he can keep track of all of his gadgets and charge them in one place each night.
Customized frisbee ($24.99+), so that he can take his kids or grandkids out to play a round of disc golf with a new frisbee sporting a nickname, “Dad”, “Grandpa”, etc. Pick the disc and design your own! (PS: Here’s a nice metal basket he could put in his backyard if you want to splurge!)
Men’s Cookbook ($10.99), because your mom, mother-in-law, or sister-in-law deserve to be cooked for occasionally as well. 🙂 This book will (hopefully!) encourage him to do so! Plus, the title of the book is awesome.
Lands End rain jacket ($59+), because he has every other kind of coat or jacket, but he could really use something for those misty days (and most guys would never buy this for themselves).
The New World Champion Paper Airplane Book ($12.76), because when are you ever too old to pour through a mindless book like this and make the coolest kinds of paper airplanes? I’m thinking loads of family fun will be created by this book. I can just see it.
Helicopter drone ($39.99), because he’s always been interested in them but doesn’t want to splurge on one. This one has exceptional rating and is a fantastic option for those in training who want to give a drone a try for the first time.
Men’s socks ($24+), because men wear socks almost 365 days a year, and these simply feel different on your feet. The price tag is a tad shocking for socks, but once you get your hands on them, you’ll see why they’re priced like they are. I had a guy friend once tell me that one of his goals in life was to be wealthy enough where he could wear a new pair of socks every day; He just loved how new socks felt on his feet. If you want to spoil a guy that you love, Bombas is a good idea. I know the men in my life would never spend this kind of money on socks, but they’d sure be glad if I did. 😉
Knife Sharpener ($17.95), because you’ve seen him get frustrated by dull kitchen knives, and sharpening all of the kitchen knives could be a fun activity for him while he’s off of work during the holidays.
Cuisinart 5-in-1 Griddler ($59.99), because this indoor grill/griddler is second to none. Easy to use, easy to clean, and cooks everything from bacon to pancakes to steaks perfectly (we know from four years of using it constantly!)
