Dads come in many different styles. You have your pragmatic, no-nonsense dad. You have your total goofball, big kid dad. You have you adventure dad. Still, it can be difficult to shop for your father. Trying to choose a perfect item that he doesn’t have, but you’re sure he’ll want. Not to worry, though. We’ve compiled a list that will help you choose that ideal item to show your dad how much you love him this Christmas.
From grills to watches, here are ten perfect presents for the dads on your Christmas list this year.
1. Jack Black First Class Five Travel Pack
Your dad might not spring for a luxury item for himself, so upgrading an everyday item to its highest level makes a great Christmas gift. This travel kit includes beard lube, all-over wash, eye and lip balm, and moisturizer all in a handsome and convenient black travel bag. You could round out the set with the turbo body bar and thickening shampoo. For dads with serious beard pride, Jack Black also makes a beard grooming kit.

Measuring 20″ by 10″, it’s available in a variety of colors and uses a magnetic closure. I’ve used this bag for several months and can personally attest to its excellent quality. Herschel also makes a duffel bag and a travel kit so you can get him the complete set.

3. Char-Broil Performance TRU Infrared 480 3-Burner Gas Grill
The classic trope is that the dad is charge of the grilling. If that’s true of your dad, it’s hard to go wrong with a grill upgrade, even in winter. This grill features a total of 660 square inches of cooking surface, including the side burner. There are three temperature gauges for accurate cooking. The grilling surfaces are porcelain-coated cast iron. Don’t forget the grill cover and barbecue set.

4. Bodum Insulated Stainless-Steel Vacuum Travel Mug
I’m a huge coffee drinker. I never skip my morning coffee. Is your dad the same way? Hook him up with a rugged travel mug to help him get his fix. This Bodum model will keep beverages hot or cold for several hours and features a silicone grip. It’s also available in several colors.

5. Citizen Men’s AU1065-58E Eco-Drive “Axiom” Black Stainless Steel Watch
A classic watch always makes a great gift. I’ve always been a big fan of Citizen’s Eco-Drives, which are solar powered. This all-black model is a nice understated piece that will look good for years. The closure is a foldover clasp and it includes a three-link band.

6. Monster Brew Home Brewing Complete Beer Equipment Kit
Home brewing continues to grow in popularity, which means that getting new, interesting ingredients is becoming easier. If your dad has been considering trying to create his own brew, this complete kit is the perfect gift to get him started. Included is all the equipment and tools needed to get started, so all he’ll need is bottles, caps, and a bottle capper. And ingredients, of course. If your dad is more of a cider guy, there’s a cider kit, too.

7. Dremel 7700-1/15 MultiPro 7.2-Volt Cordless Rotary Tool Kit
If your dad is the workshop type, a rotary tool can be handy for a wide variety of uses. Dremel is easily the best-known name in rotary tools. I have one and use it regularly for any number of household uses, most recently to grind rust off a car panel. Mind is the corded model, however. You can give your dad an even more convenient version with this cordless version. Make sure to pick up the accessory kit, too, since the sanders and cutters wear down pretty quickly.

8. Haggar Men’s Nep Shawl Collar Cardigan Sweater
Shawl collar cardigans are really popular right now, so if your dad is normally on-trend or if he could use a little help catching up, this sweater is a great gift. This is 25% wool, so it’s hand wash only.

9. PlayStation 4 1TB Console – Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 Limited Edition Bundle
Is your dad more into video games than you are? Upgrade him to Sony’s latest PlayStation. This Call of Duty bundle will have him playing before Christmas day is over. The new Fallout is out, too, so you may want to grab that for him while you’re at it.

10. Soundfreaq SFQ-06 Sound Platform 2 Bluetooth Speaker System
Bluetooth speakers have supplanted the component stereo systems of old. If your father hasn’t quite come around yet, help him update his stereophonic possibilities with the Sound Platform 2. I have owned the original Sound Platform for years and I wouldn’t trade it for anything. I absolutely love the room-filling sound and the Bluetooth connection works like a dream. There’s an aux in cable in case wireless isn’t a requirement. Your dad can download an app to turn his phone into a remote control for it, too.
