Because he’s the best dad in the world so it’s actually easier to gift him than you think. These are the best gifts for dad (so far) in 2019.
For real, though, how kick-ass is your dad? He’s always been there for you, taught you so many cool (and downright weird) things, listened to your endless stories and complaints, taught you some inappropriate jokes, and barely yelled at you when you wrecked his car. Ok, fine, he yelled. Like, a lot. The point is that Christmas comes around but once a year and it may be one of the only times you actually get him a gift so why not make it one that he wants and needs?
If you’re not going the last minute gifting route, we can help! We’ve tackled some super traditional gifts for dad (hello cologne and sneakers!), found some cool tech gadgets he’ll be obsessing over (hi there Alexa everything!), and went out on a limb to recommend some ideas that he probably wants deep down, but is just too
cheap selfless to buy himself. Either way, he already loves you but will love you more for thinking of him on his special day. Check out our top picks for some of the best gifts (so far) in 2019 for dear old dad!
