Hello, and welcome to the 2019 Gift Guide Series. Today we’re taking on dads. BUT, I had requests to do a non-traditional list. No ties, sweaters, beer subscriptions.
SO, I hope I did you guys well. Here’s my list.
Funny Mug– Mugs are always a safe go-to and perfect as stocking stuffers. Plus, you can find mugs for every kind of dad.
Taco Holder– I mean, it’s a taco holder that looks like a dinosaur, I don’t know what else I could say about it.
Mini Waffle Maker – Perfect for dads, bachelors, college kids, grandpa… I mean, who doesn’t want a mini waffle?
Armchair Caddy– There’s nothing worse than sitting down to watch the game and realize you don’t have the remote, your snacks, your phone, and whatever other odds and ends dads need. But, the real plus is now all their stuff doesn’t end up all over your coffee table.
Toaster Grilled Cheese Bags – Grilled cheese IN the toaster?
$30 AND UNDER
Founding Fathers Ornaments– Why not give your father the founding fathers? Perfect for any history buff.
Foodie Dice – A fun “roll the dice” on what to cook for dinner for the guy who likes to get creative in the kitchen.
Bro Mask – it’s like a face mask, for bros.
Alcohol Infusion Kit – a fun idea for the mixologist in your life.
Shower Beer Caddy – I think this one is self-explanatory.
Custom Flask – I love anything you can customize because it makes it feel more personal.
Ultimate Triva Game – for the “know it all” guy in your life.
On-the-go Old Fashion Set – great for the wannabe mixologist.
Silicone Toiletry Travel Bag – Michael has one of these and uses it ALL the time, not just for travel. But this silicone one is so much smarter because it’s easy to store and clean.
Funny Welcome Mat – Love this because it’s SO versatile depending on the type of dad you’re shopping for. You can go with something classic, something funny, something sarcastic, something for dog-lovers….basically just about a doormat for anything.
Protect the Earth Mugs – These are handmade mugs and $5 from every one sold goes to Open Space Institute, a nonprofit that supports conservation efforts.
$50 and Over
Custom house watercolor – Love the personalization of this gift.
StoryWorth, a Personal Memoir – this is a company that sends a question prompt every week for a year, then at the end creates it into a memoir and sends the hardcover book of your personal memoir. I got this for my dad and it was SUCH a cool experience.
Portable Espresso Press– for the guy who needs his espresso no matter where he is.
Good at Naps Blanket – these are handmade and call out what dad is REALLY best at.
