Shopping For Dad This Holiday

Dec 10, 2007
Shopping for Dad always seems pretty easy. They always seem to like whatever you give him. Why not make it special and really give him something to smile about this holiday season.

One suggestion for a gift for Dad might be the traditional tools. A man can never have enough tools for projects around the house. By giving him his favorite tool, one could achieve several things. First, he gets a smile on his face. Second, your home projects might actually get done. Finally, he has a toy of his own.

Another gift idea would be electronics.

These would range from MP3 Players/IPODs to GPSs and TVs. They are all great ideas. MP3 Players/IPODs can be taken everywhere and can plug into his car or treadmill. He will enjoy his music while he is either driving or running. Maybe even watch a game or movie on his IPOD. Of course the game would look even better on a brand new television. There are plenty of options between LCD, Plasma and Projection TV. Don't forget the GPS. Men, especially Dad, will not want to ask for directions this holiday season. Save him the trouble with a new GPS system. This way everyone gets where they need to go safely and on time.

Moms are always expected to look nice for the holidays. Well men are starting to take their personal hygiene seriously. There are plenty of products out there to help Dad look and feel his best. These can range from new electric shavers, to nose trimmers, to fog-free mirror in the shower, and maybe even a massage toy to help Dad relax after a long day. All these would contribute to Dad looking and feeling better during the holidays. Dad may even want his favorite cologne or hair product. Surprisingly more and more men are starting to really take an interest in how they look and smell. I am sure moms appreciate this.

Sports, many argue, are the man's domain at home. Why not spoil Dad this holiday season with tickets to go and see his favorite team play? Another suggestion could be sports memorabilia. Does Dad have a favorite team or player? Maybe get him a poster, jersey, signed card or ball. Maybe Dad doesn't watch sports, maybe he likes to play. This holiday, upgrade his sports equipment. He will think of you every time he plays. Or maybe Dad doesn't play sports, but enjoys the competition of a good poker game. Give him something to play this winter like a poker set, table and a poker book. The game is so hot right now and he can invite his buddies over for a nice friendly home game.

Apparel and accessories for Dad work well as a holiday gift. Great suggestions could be a new jacket, work out clothes, sweaters, or even a nice tie! Dad should really throw away that old holey shirt and you can replace it with one from his school alma mater. Maybe he could use a nice black sweater or ski jacket to keep him warm and in style. Watches are also a nice addition to Dad's wardrobe. They are both functional and contribute to that finished look that makes Dad look complete.

All of these suggestions of holiday gifts I am sure will put a happy face on Dad. Some you can enjoy as a family and others Dad can enjoy by himself or with his buddies. After all, holiday gifts are wonderful to receive and put to use and with these suggestions you will surely not disappoint dear ole Dad.
