What comes to mind when you think of the best dad gifts? Socks and ties? Scotch? Golf clubs? Cigars? A… like an axe, maybe? Look, all of those are actually pretty great gifts, but they’re hardly out-of-the-box ideas. And if it’s the thought that counts, then an old mainstay gift like a 19-year-old bottle of Ardbeg Traigh Bhan whisky is hardly going to excite your dear old dad. (OK, maybe that $300 bottle will, actually.)
Today we’re blending a few of the classic dad gifts but also going further afield, finding gifts that fathers likely never thought of before, but will surely love and appreciate nonetheless. Don’t worry, I’m qualified here: on top of many years of experience being a son, I also have years of experience being a dad. So… yes, if you’re looking to get me personally a great dad gift, any of this stuff will do nicely.
