inspiration: what the eff do i get for dad this holiday season?

I was recently requested to compile a gift list for Dads that DOES NOT include your typical socks, scarves and "innovative organizers for computer cords." Let's admit it, Dads are the most difficult to shop for. 

Why is this? 

1. Being they could give a crap, or so they say... but they really do. 
2. Because frankly, they really don't know what they need, unless they had to take the time to really think about it, which they don't. 

Here is my list dedicated to everyone's old man: 

sporty dad:

1. RAZR Fit Driver By Callaway 
2. Titleist Pro V1 Golf Balls
3. Leather Head - Handmade Football 

hygienic dad:  

1. C.O. Bigelow Marvis Classic Mint Toothpaste
2. The Art of Shaving Gillette Fusion Pro Glide Razor + Blades
3. Gin & Tonic Prohibition Bar Soap

dad in the kitchen:

1. Rotary Cheese Grater
2. Celebrity Mugs
3. Cast Iron Tool Bottle Openers

travel dad: 

1. Passport Cover By Rustico Leather
2. Ian Velardi Duffel Bag
3. Slim Sonic Toothbrush - Travel Size

'softly' tech savvy dad:

1. Bose OE2i Audio Headphones
2. "HotSpot" Heating Radiator - dry your clothes, heat your room
3. Plattan Harris Tweed Headphones 

fragile, lounging dad:

1. Joules US "Selwyn" Pajama Bottoms 
2. Armor Lux "Lames Reyes" Slippers
3. UGG Australia 'Brunswick' Robe

"i have no idea what to get you..." gift set dad:

1. ''Age your own whiskey set.'' By Woodinville Whiskey 
2. Veuve Clicquot Traveller Set 
3. John Varvatos Artisan Cologne & Grooming Gift Set


  1. This is a great list! Some very unique gift ideas here! I love the Whiskey aging kit, the travel size toothbrush, the cast iron bottle openers, and I even like the robe. Can you do all of my Christmas shopping for me?!

  2. Which type of "dad" do you classify Dean as?

  3. He's totally a "Gift Set Dad" or... "Here is a Shirt from Tommy Bahama Dad. "
    However, this year he actually told me what he needed, which was a first.
