Because you have the best uncle in the whole wide world and you can never find actual gifts for uncles anywhere.
Is it just us or is it almost impossible to find anything with the actual word “uncle” on it?! We alway find stuff with “World’s Best Auntie” everywhere we look. Poor uncles are totally underrepresented in the gifting world and we’re here to make it way the hell better for them and for you. Seriously though, how cool is your uncle? He’s like your dad but, you know, better because he’s never really going to yell at you, you can always go to him with anything, and he’ll probably treat you to breakfast, lunch, and dinner every time you’d let him. Plus, he’s funny AF and always down for a fun adventure with you. So it’s clearly time to let him know how much you appreciate him, care about him, and want to be like him (are we projecting here?). We found some really cool gift ideas for uncles and then some things that aren’t totally uncle-related, but stuff he’d totally dig. Shop our picks for the best gifts for uncles (so far) this year.
