Get Great Christmas Gifts For Dads Here This Season!
Looking for unique gifts for dad? You know – the gifts for dads who want nothing? We’ve been there! Buying great gifts for dads can often be super complicated because they either have everything or he doesn’t want anything!
So, to help you out this Christmas season (and channeling our inner struggle for dad gift buying) we put together this guide of great gift ideas for all the different budgets you might have in mind!
Things to Consider When Buying Christmas Gifts for Dads
Before you head out to buy that perfect gift (or gifts) for the dad in your life, consider the following buying tips and/or details.
Price/Quality. Obviously, the price is an important detail to consider. Remember, a higher price doesn’t always mean better. It really depends on the product. However, if you’re aiming to grab him tools (like a new set of wrenches), then the more expensive ones are actually usually better.
In the end, you’ll have to judge whether you can get away with the cheaper version of the gift or go all out to buy the best one. You can also just buy a gift in a lower price bracket to avoid the problem of over-spending/having a “mad dad” that you spent so much on him!
If you are unsure what to buy, perhaps package a few smaller gifts together into a mini gift pack that he can enjoy? You can theme the gifts to what he likes (beer, golf, etc) so at least you’re buying in the right direction. Just an idea!
Purpose. One of the biggest things to think about is the purpose of the gift. Is it just supposed to be funny? Is the gift supposed to serve a function, like a tool or electronic? How often can he/will he use it? Think about these things so you buy a gift that will be used frequently OR used a few times but it very important in that moment, like a specialized item or tool.
Cheap Christmas Gifts for Dads
First off, the cheap gifts. There are endless gifts out there that are cheaper and can suit all different dads and their interests. Cheap gifts are also good if you want to buy lots of smaller gifts and put them together – like a “build your own” gift pack for dad. Sometimes – but not always – cheap gifts end up being gag gifts that people can laugh at. Bruce’s dad would – without a shred of doubt – like the Planet of the Apes box set below. Not even kidding!

Mid-Range Christmas Gifts for Dads
Mid-range gifts are those perfect “in-between gifts” that can be given to a dad on their own OR they can go with a small item or another mid-range gift. It really depends on what the gift is and what it might be paired with. For example, a Bloody Mary gift set and a bartending set go together well. From this list, our dads would appreciate the multi-tool since they are pretty handy.
