If you are wondering what to get dad for Christmas, you are not alone. Many of us have a tough time figuring what could be the best Christmas gifts for dad.
Don’t worry. This Christmas, you can spoil your dad without breaking the bank. It’s possible.
If you are looking to buy a special gift that won’t be hard on your wallet, you’re at the right place at the right time.
From the latest Bluetooth headphones to vintage radio sets, I have rounded up some of the best gifts for dad that won’t blow a hole in your pocket.
And if your dad loves to make a style statement and is on toes with the trends, well, I have that covered with this A to Z style guide, as well.
Here is a trendy Bluetooth wireless headset Dad would love to wear. It’s so cool you may even convince your pops to go on an early morning jog. What’s more, it’s designed to fit snugly in his ears, has enough juice to get him through the day, and is sweat proof.
Moreover, the smartly designed earbuds have a special eartip that makes it possible to hear outside sounds, which is a good safety feature that prevents accidents and allows users to hear other sounds like oncoming traffic for instance.
Adjustable Vented Laptop
If workaholic Dad doesn’t find pedalling under the desk a practical thing to do at work, tell him sitting all day is a bad work habit. Instead, get him to add more years to his span by standing a few hours. Not only have several studies shown that standing a few hours a day significantly increases health, but it also enhances overall work productivity.
If your dad is worried about ergonomics, keeping his laptop in the perfect position with the best viewing angle, here’s an adjustable, multifunctional laptop table, desk tray- call it whatever you want– that gets the job done.
3 in 1 Gardening Tool
Maybe your dad has a green thumb. And you have no clue what to get him this Christmas? A quality hand-held leaf vacuum or blower would be a great pick. Cleaning up leaves, pine needles, grass clippings and other lawn debris is cumbersome for anyone. But hey, you can make life easier for dear old Dad with this versatile tool which combines Blower/Vac/Mulcher into one.
This 3 in 1 Black & Decker power tool with two speed selection is certain to make your his gardening projects a lot simpler because it can pull leaves, detritus and sticks into a catch bag.
Complete Car Care Kit
With the winter setting in, it’s quite likely that your dad’s car will need a spruce-up before it’s back to looking its pristine best. Grit, grime and road salt can wreak havoc with the car’s bodywork, while interiors can look pretty worn out, after, several months of abuse.
This complete car care kit featuring first rate products will put a big smile on your father’s face. From car shampoo to conditioner foams, wax nourish and interior detailer, this kit includes everything your dad needs for total car care.
Every Day Carry (EDC) Knife
Not all dads are the same. Some are more eager to attend formal events while others tend to spend their time in the outdoors. For the latter, a Spyderco classic is a lovely gift.
Rated as one of the top EDC knives made in the USA, the Manix 2 G-10 helps dad navigate everything from the backyard to the barren lands. Even if your dad is not big on knives, this knife, here, makes a brilliant gift because it’s something to keep for emergencies.
If Dad likes the idea of hands-off cooking, here is a clever pint sized thermometer to satisfy the chef in him.
This handy little probe lets Dad make food cooked to specifications without the bother of having to be hands-on right through the cooking process. Get your dad this lovely bluetooth thermometer and he’ll be glad you bought it. Oh yeah, next time when he cooks something low and slow overnight he need not have to check the temperature in the wee hours. That quality alone makes this gadget worthwhile.
Tell your big man that he does not have to lose his sleep over wrist pain with this ergonomically designed Logitech mouse.
The MX Master wireless mouse is designed to fit in one’s hand- pretty comfortably- and has a thumbwheel that makes navigating through content a lot easier. It is a great gift especially if your dad is a power user with an eye for the programmable functions these devices are known for. Dad will appreciate that it’s quite larger than a portable mouse, and that’s because it is designed to do many more things and can track on almost any surface.
Special Edition Radio
Back in the day, Dad would know in a minute what radio station he had on by the mere sound of the radio jockeys and the jingles that were played. But Dad lost his love for radio as years flew by.
Help dad revisit the (g)olden days of browsing through radio stations by simply turning a knob on a home or car stereo. Last year, renowned radio maker Sangean came up with a special edition of the widely known WR-11 Table Top Radio to mark its 40th anniversary.
