Christmas gift ideas for Dad can be especially challenging, but don’t despair! There’s much more out there than the same old box of golf tees or argyle socks. Whether he’s a Sci-Fi geek or a coffee snob, here are some Christmas present ideas for every kind of dad.

Dress Sweat Pants


Dress Sweatpants

Yes, you read that right. If you’re shopping for the guy who needs to look good, but would rather wear his sweats instead of real pants… this is the gift for him. Betabrand’s Dress Sweat Pants look like wool slacks, but they’re really made from French terry, making them incredibly soft and comfortable. He’ll look appropriate for the office or dinner out, but he’ll feel as relaxed and happy as he would sprawled on the couch. Now that is a gift that keeps on giving.


 A Drone


If you’re looking for Christmas gift ideas for Dad that will get him out of the house, this drone is just the ticket. He can explore up to 1.24 miles away and can get totally immersed in the experience using the Cockpit glasses. Even better, this gift will be just as fun for the kids as it is for him, so they’ll be able to spend some quality time together discovering the world around them with this impressive drone.


Nintendo NES


Nintendo Nes


For the gamer dad, the Nintendo NES is a throwback treat to the original Nintendo system with all the same classic games. He can teach the kids how to play Pac-Man, Donkey Kong, or Super Mario Brothers just like he used to play, or sit together as a family and play Duck Hunt. He can finally explain that Legend of Zelda joke he’s been making all the kids’ lives! It’s guaranteed to be lots of fun for him and the family.


Beer Making Kit

Brooklyn Brew Shop Beer Making Kit


A beer making kit is the perfect gift for the beer connoisseur. This is a project and a present all rolled into one, and the dad that enjoys a delicious brew will appreciate the opportunity to make a brew of his own. Whether he prefers a light, refreshing, fruity ale or a dark, rich, oatmeal stout, there’s a beer making kit just for him.

 And finally, for the dad that has everything, let Google Home get everything else for him. This voice-activated speaker accesses Google Assistant to answer questions, accesses music services and other smart devices, or does things like retrieve reservation info or set alarms and timers. Google Home gives him hands-free access to important info so he can go about his day knowing he’ll have everything he needs. As a bonus, Google Home is easily managed by the Google Home App for iPhone/iPad  & Android
