Sure, he says he wants nothing … but he hasn’t seen these clever ideas yet.
The man in your life doesn’t need another button-down. Or tie. Or picture frame. Instead, your hard-to-shop-for dad deserves a unique Father’s Day gift that’s just as creative and thoughtful as he is. That’s why you should ditch your original (er, boring) Father’s Day plan and give your special guy — dad, grandpa, father-in-law, or any other man who has shaped your life — one of these top-rated gift ideas, ranging from all-day experiences to best-selling, quick-to-ship Amazon finds. Even if your dad says that he doesn’t want anything (or worse, already has everything), you’ll find a few picks on this list that’ll surprise and delight him on his special day. And if you choose right, you might even bring the (happy) tears, which is a big win in our eyes.
Since dad always reminds you that the sky’s the limit, see if he practices what he preaches with two flights in a vertical wind tunnel. It’ll feel like the real thing minus the plane, parachute, and panic.
