7 Gifts For Your Dad (And Other Guys)

The holidays are coming up, and you have gifts picked out for almost everyone. You know what your sister would like, your mom isn’t hard to shop for… what are you going to get for your dad? 

Guys in general and dads in particular can be difficult to find gifts for, so we at Giftry thought we’d share some ideas to get you thinking. 


Let’s start with some grooming products. Chances are, the gentleman you’re looking for a gift for shaves, and I’d be willing to bet he does that by slathering on some shaving cream by hand and then scraping it off with a razor. That’s where this lovely badger hair shaving brush can help. It might not seem like much, but applying shaving cream with a brush really makes for a better shave (personal experience). Plus, it’s very cool. For an even better shaving experience, get him some Gentleman’s Refinery Black Ice shaving cream. It comes in a tub, not an aerosol can, and it’s the perfect complement to that shaving brush.Finish up with a tin of solid cologne from Alfred Lane. These colognes are made with all-natural ingredients and smell amazing. They’re also incredibly convenient for traveling; there’s no risk of spillage, and the tin is small enough to be carried easily and legally in carry-on baggage. 

Alright, more cool stuff. How about a handmade vintage leather baseball from Huntington Baseball Co.? They’re made in Massachusetts using high-quality vegetable-tanned leather, which means that they’re solid, durable, and perfect for a game. They’ll also look great on a shelf when they’re not being used.

For the outdoors enthusiast an ultralight Emberlit FireAnt camp stove might be just the thing. It’s a collapsible camping stove made of titanium, and can burn wood or solid fuel packs.

Here’s a cool one. This keychain/bottle opener combo features a unique design and attractive style. It’s machined from a single piece of steel, and made in the USA by a small private machine shop. You can’t really go wrong with this one. If you like their style, check out some of Machine Era Co.’s other pieces as well.
Finally, an idea for the techie in your life. Buying tech gifts can be difficult without a thorough understanding of the exact interests and needs of the recipient, but a compact spare battery for your mobile device is something just about anyone can appreciate. This particular Mophie battery features a built-in micro USB plug, but Mophie also offers variants with iPhone Lightning plugs or standard USB sockets that allow you to use your own cable. 

Hopefully these ideas help you find the perfect gift! Share your best ideas on Giftry or on our Facebook page, and as always be sure to pay some of the Giftry Influencers a visit for even more great ideas.


Happy gifting!
