Top Gifts for Dads, Uncles and Gramps

Sometimes dads, uncles, and gramps get the raw end of the stick when it comes to getting cool gifts. Often ending up with socks (although, everyone needs socks right?) or the same check shirt as last year. Here is a list of goodies that might land you in the good books.

So, this year put the sock back on the shelf and hit the internet for some excellent purchases.

First up, how about a beer caddy with a bottle opener? Ideal for the outdoorsy men who like to cook up a storm at a BBQ, or sit and fish on the weekends. Either way, for around 45 dollars you can buy a handcrafted beer caddy and give the gift of 6 bottled beers available anywhere.

Sports tickets. If you know the man in your life is a huge sports fan, then imagine the absolute joy of getting a pair of Dodgers tickets (or better yet, go see the Cardinals). Or of course, your choice of sports team and sport!

Have a music mogul man hanging around? Someone who talks about their classic vinyl collection? Then maybe getting a turntable would blow them away. You might not want to hear some of the golden oldies that start playing, but there is no denying great music can make anyone’s day better.

Avid cooks are ideal people to buy gifts for. Because everyone can benefit from those kitchen toys! Think about some of the following items:

  • Keyboard Waffle Iron
  • Pancake Maker
  • Slushie Makers
  • Mini Cupcake Maker
  • Waffle Bowl Maker
  • Breakfast Master
  • Hotdog Toaster
  • Bacon Express

Super cool gadgets with a lot of appeal for everyone in the house. If none of those are what you’re looking for, why not consider a new BBQ. Either way, with anything on this list you’re bound to get something delicious!

Ballpark Blueprints. Huge baseball fan? Why not get them a piece of art they’ll genuinely enjoy having around?

Personalizing a family photo album filled with photos as far back as you can find are always such lovely things to receive.

What about, indulging them in an incredibly aged whiskey or other drink of choice. You can often find online stores that will personalize the bottles for you too. Giving it an extra special touch.

If you have a bit of a joker in your midst, then funny gifts like sound effects machines, whoopie cushions, and inflatable sumo suits work a treat and entertaining the whole family.

Model kits are a very cool and enjoyable gift to give to someone. The hobby kits come in different levels and sizes, so you can pick something that would be ideal. A few companies to check out are Revell, Airfix, Tamiya, and Zvezda. But, you can find more online. They come in many different forms so you can pick something they’ll love.

One more great gift to think about is, are any of their favorite bands or musicians touring? Grab tickets, and you’re sorted!

So there you have it, a few gift ideas that might save your bacon when it comes to birthdays, fathers day and the holiday season.
