Forget the cheesy “#1 Dad” mugs this year and find him a gift that’ll make him feel extra special. To help you get started, here are some of my top picks for every type of dad!


1. For the Die-Hard Sports Fan

Swiss Army Knife

If your dad spends more time out in the open than under his own roof, look for a gift that’ll keep him prepared as he heeds nature’s call. A Swiss army knife is the perfect choice for an outdoor adventurer—he’ll make good use of it and it’ll last a long time.


3. For the Top Chef

Your dad may think he already has his own cooking show, but a chef is only as good as his ingredients and tools. With a digital thermometer your dad’s grilled meats will impress even the likes of Bobby Flay.


4. For the Business Exec

5. For the Handyman

Is the garage is your dad’s most frequented room in the house? Pass on the flowers and treat your dad to a bouquet of wrenches or other hands-on tools.


6. For the TV Junkie

While condoning the potato couch behavior might not be ideal for the family, endorsing your dad’s love for kicking back and watching TV will make his day. A streaming media player like Chromecast will give your dad access to all the shows and movies he could ever dream for!


7. For the Techie

Dad may be behind the times with his terrible dad jokes, but you can keep him hip and modern with the latest technology.
