Buying a Christmas gift is an important task. It takes time to get it right. You will want to buy a gift that is thoughtful and that he’ll actually use. Even if he says he “doesn’t need anything,” there are Christmas gift ideas here to suit all sorts of dads. As you look at these gifts that suit every budget, keep in mind all the most important men in your life; your dad, your stepdad, your father in law – even your husband. Gifts for Dad can be challenging at times, as they always say they don’t need anything, or if they are like my husband, they just go buy their own stuff all year long.
Looking For Something Practical?
Christmas Gifts for Dad Under $30
Wireless Charging Hubs a Practical Dad Gift
The wireless charging hubs feel like something from the future; place a compatible device on the surface, and it will charge by being on the platform. No wires or plugs are needed. This can live on his desk or the countertop – and provided his devices are compatible, they’ll charge!
Practical Dad Christmas Gift for the Handyman
The best sort of gift is something that a dad would definitely get a lot of use out of but might not think to buy it for themselves. That’s where this magnetic wrist toolbelt comes into its own. Keeping small, metal objects like screws and washers right there to hand exactly as DAD needs them can reduce the number of accidents had while fishing around in a tool belt around his waist. Safety first!
Practical Christmas Gift for the Dad who loves the outdoors
This Bluetooth speaker is both portable and water-resistant. That means it could withstand the steam and vapour of the bathroom so he can sing along in the shower, but don’t fully submerge it in the water. Perfect if your dad likes to spend time hiking outdoors – where it could be clipped to his rucksack or inside his tent. It’s robust enough to live inside a garage, where it can be playing his favourite hits while he tinkers inside the man cave.
Great Stocking Idea for the Dad that has everything!
For the Dad that needs light
Rechargeable flashlights have been available for a while but weren’t really powerful enough to be useful. But this Tactical Flashlight has 1200 lumens, includes a flashing SOS feature and is waterproof.
Christmas Gift Ideas for Dad Under $100
If your dad keeps losing his keys, consider getting him a Tile Pro. as a Christmas Gift idea. This incredibly practical gift can be attached to anything that has a tendency to “go missing” and has a 400-foot range – meaning you can check the location of the missing object on your phone’s tracker!
The Popular Yeti Travel Mug
For the Dad who has everything, he may need a new travel mug! And I have seen everyone rave about the Yeti travel mug, they are not cheap for a travel mug, but they must work well to keep drinks hot and cold with massive insulation technology.
For the Dad who suffers from back pain
We all end up with sore backs from time to time, this would make a swell gift for your dad that can easily be attached to his favourite Man chair and get some relief from pain with this Memory foam lumbar support.
This sleep aid from Dodow helps people to fall asleep more quickly and stay asleep for longer. Using light to create a relaxing breathing rhythm, this sleep aid can help people reclaim hundreds of lost sleep hours each year. This is a great Christmas gift idea for the dads out there that need more sleep!
For the Dad that loves the Kitchen
If your dad is handy in the kitchen (and especially if he isn’t!), he can’t go wrong with a panini press. He makes the sandwich of his choice, and using the special “floating lid” design of the press, turns a boring midday snack into something warm, toasted and inviting.
