Shopping for dads is no easy feat… Just ask anyone who's spent hours on end sifting through tired selections of ties and coming up short. We love our dads, but the temptation to gift them the same thing every year is real. We admit that checking him off your holiday shopping list can often be extremely tricky and sometimes even a little disappointing. Nothing can shoot down your holiday spirit quicker than an unsuccessful shopping trip, which is why (drumroll, please) we decided to do the shopping for you.
Ahead, we've rounded up the gifts your dad will be thrilled to open up this holiday season. From a cozy pajama set he can wear while sipping coffee and reading the newspaper to the gifts that act as subtle hints you think he can update his style, we've thought of nearly every gift idea under the sun. Obviously he'll love these gifts no matter what because they came from his beloved child, but he'll also love them because these presents aren't just normal dad gifts, they're cool dad gifts. One scroll through 27 items listed ahead and you'll know what we mean.
