Your father is a very special person in your life. He’s helped mold you into the person you are today and Christmas is a great time to say thank you with an awesome and thoughtful Christmas gift. Before we get into the ten best Christmas gifts for Dad, however, I’ve put together a short list of tips to help you decide which gift is best for your father.

  • Network with your family. There is nothing more frustrating than figuring out the absolute perfect gift for your father, getting it all wrapped and watching him open it only to find out someone already got it for him. Talk to your siblings or your other family members and find out what other people are getting for him so you’re sure you don’t wind up getting him the same thing.
  • Listen for hints. Your father wants to receive a nice gift as badly as you want to give him one so he’s bound to drop hints leading up to Christmas. If something he uses a lot breaks, a replacement will obviously make a fabulous gift and will also show him you actually listen when he tells you things.
  • Get creative. Look at your father’s hobbies and try to learn a little more about those hobbies. Find gifts that either make that hobby easier or will allow him more time to partake in those hobbies. If your dad has a hobby that involves using supplies to make things, make a sort of gift basket filled with supplies for him. Choose the supplies he’ll use most often. It’s a useful and thoughtful gift your dad will appreciate.
  • Focus on his interests. If your dad has no interest at all in technology, he probably won’t have much interest in some new high tech gadget. He won’t necessarily think something is cool just because you do. Instead, focus on what he is interested in. If your father is into sports, buy him something that has to do with that sport or something related to his favorite sports team. He’ll like it a lot more.

With those tips in mind, let’s take a look at ten great Christmas gifts for Dads that are popular this season and talk a little bit about the product and the kind of Dad the gift would be perfect for.

This is a break bike for grocery shopping or spending an afternoon at the park with a little packed lunch. This is the gift for Dads who love the outdoors but are more interested in relaxing in the shade and perhaps doing a little fishing instead of those interested in working up a sweat with a high impact ride on a mountain bike.
