8 More Awesome Gifts for Dad on Father’s Day
’Cause he’s the best.
Sure, he’s still a noob when it comes to figuring out the internet. (“Meme? Is that a dirty word?”) And, yes, his fashion sense is horrifically outdated. (“Dad, no one wants to see that much thigh.”) But, when it comes to naming your No. 1, ride-or-die, fly guy fo’ life, you know your pop, for all his faults, can’t be beat—dorky jokes, terrible taste in footwear, crotchety moods and all.
That’s why he deserves extra attention this Father’s Day. Steak dinner? Def. Sports all day? Whatever you want, Daddy-o. And, of course, a gift that’s just as enchanting as this magic man himself. Here are our picks for what to give our best dude this Father’s Day. They include some style, some sweets and a whole lotta local.
Go ahead, Dad: Take it like a man.
