Things to Consider When Buying Christmas Gifts for Dads

Before you head out to buy that perfect gift – or gifts – for your dad, consider the following buying details.

Price and 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 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 more expensive one. You can also just buy a gift in a lower price bracket to avoid the problem of over-spending/having a dad that is mad that you spent so much on him!

If you are unsure what to buy, perhaps opt to 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 you’re buying in the right direction. Just an idea!

Affordable Christmas Gifts for Dad

There are lots of affordable gifts for dads out there that can suit all different dads and their interests. Cheap gifts are also good if you want to buy multiple 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 above. Not even kidding.

Mid-range Christmas Gifts for Dad

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 also appreciate the multi-tool since they are pretty handy.

High-End Christmas Gifts for Dad

There are also lots of great high-end gifts for dads. From toys and electronics to super useful tools for around the home, there is certainty no shortage.

These are the kinds of gifts that you buy once every few years (or even less often if it’s something like an expensive watch) because they usually last a while. So have a look at some of the higher-priced items on our list above. Personally, we like the headphones since Bruce’s dad actually uses a set like that in real life.

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/will he use it? Think about these things so you buy a gift that will be used frequently or used a few times when absolutely necessary (and there is no possible substitution) as is the case for a specialized item or tool.

And there you have it – 31 of the best Christmas gifts for dads this holiday season. Whatever you end up buying, just keep your dad and his interests in mind and you should find something suitable!

As always, Stay Curious,
