It’s always the same story; you want to buy a cool gift for Dad, but he’s so hard to buy for. Whether its a birthday gift, Christmas gift, Father’s Day gift, or some other special occasion, Dads are notorious for either saying they don’t want anything or they want something basic like socks or a sweater. Well there is no way your going to buy that for them. It’s just not cool! You’re Dad is too cool for something basic. You want to get him a great gift that he will really love!
The first question you should ask is, “What is he into?” Take a look at what he spends most of his time doing, or wishes he was doing, and you’ll probably find some very good candidate gift categories.
For me, I like cars, trucks, motorcycles, tools, country music, writing articles like this one on my laptop, watching NASCAR, auto racing of all types, international soccer (especially the Premier League in the UK), playing the occasional game with my daughter on Xbox (all on our big screen TV), and working on projects around the house. So if someone was going to buy me a gift for my birthday, a Christmas gift, or a Father’s Day gift, something in those areas would be a good choice.
Some of the things I’m interested in, like a lot of men seem to be, are new technology and electronics. With that in mind, some gifts that might be appropriate include a new larger flat screen TV, a new laptop, a media streaming box, a new tablet computer, a new game console, a backup camera for the truck, one of those new black box cameras for the car, a set of those new-fangled headphones, a new larger monitor to view the laptop on, and the list goes on.
There are also some things that your Dad may not really enjoy doing that much, but he has to do them anyway including chores around the house, the honey-do list, yard work, and fixing things that continually seem to break. In those categories you might choose a cool gift for Dad he would find useful and appreciate that make his life a little easier and those tasks he dreads not as dreadful.
For instance, yard work might be easier if he had a vacuum/blower to clean up after he mows. If he worries about getting stranded in his car or truck, a portable jump box or some jumper cables would be a good choice. Does he store a car or motorcycle in the Winter? It’s common for their batteries to go dead so getting him a battery tender would make his life a whole lot easier in the Spring. Cleaning up around the shop or garage is always a pain, but you could make it less of a pain with a good quality shop vac or wet/dry vacuum. Does he drink beer or wine? What about a fancy beer refrigerator, wine refrigerator, or kegerator for the den or man cave? Does your Dad enjoy the outdoors, adventure, and action? One of the hottest gifts are the new action-adventure cameras designed to capture all those cool memories.
