Holiday Gift Ideas for Dads

Dads can be incredibly hard to buy for, mainly because when they want something they just go out and get it! The Creative QT team rounded up our favorite selection of unique gifts for Dad that offer relaxation, family time and some pampering... man-style!


Holiday Gift Ideas for Dads

1. Monopoly

'Why?' we hear you ask. Well this classic board game is great for including family of all ages. Too often we are busy giving our attention to technology. A family game night with this classic game is sure to result in laughter, quality time, and maybe even some healthy competition!

2. L.L. Bean Loafer Slippers

After a full day of work, whether it be business or as a stay at home Dad, there is nothing more satisfying than slipping into some warm cozy footwear! These hand-sewn, flannel-lined slippers will offer comfort all year round.

3. Pancake Griddle

Perhaps giving Dad a state of the art pancake griddle will be a gentle hint for him to offer a gourmet breakfast for the whole family every now and again. Or, if you are lucky enough for this to already happen, maybe it will just make the whole process a lot less messy! Nothing beats waking up to the sweet smell of fresh pancakes on a Sunday morning!

4. Starbucks Giftcard

Moms aren't the only ones who need to re-fuel on a daily basis! A working Dad will really appreciate being able to treat himself to a Starbucks seasonal special coffee such as a Caramel Brûlée Latte or Peppermint Mocha! The perfect afternoon pick-me-up for a long day at the office.

5. Tickets to a Game

It can be tough as a parent to stay in touch with personal passions. Does Dad have a favorite sport or team? Why not treat him to tickets for a game and maybe even throw in some concession stand money! Being able to watch a game without 'pee pee' interruptions or being asked one million questions about the game will be a big enough treat in itself!

6. Meat Thermometer

Is Dad a big meat lover? Whether it is cooking on the grill in the summer, prepping the Thanksgiving turkey or treating the family to a meat feast, a high-tech meat thermometer will make life so much easier. This particular model is wireless, which means Dad can start the meat cooking then sit down and relax until it's all done!

7. Model Kit Car

Is Dad a little car-crazy? Get him his favorite car in model form. These model kit cars are great for Father-Son projects, a great opportunity for some bonding time. 

8. Noise Cancelling Headphones

Being a parent is relentless! Not always in a bad way, but as parents we know how full on looking after kids is. So why not provide Dad with a little slice of heaven... also know as peace and quiet. These Apple Beats headphones are wireless and noise cancelling. A few hours here and there of uninterrupted personal time is surely one of the most precious gifts for any Dad!

9. Personalized Cufflinks

Ideal for a business Dad, personalizing some sterling silver cufflinks is a thoughtful and sentimental gift that can be kept for many years. You could add your kids' names or birthdates to give it even more of a family-related personal touch.

10. Milwaukee Heated Sweatshirt

Does Dad always struggle with the cold weather? Maybe he has a job based in the great outdoors? Or maybe he just wishes he lived somewhere warmer! Milwaukee Tool have an awesome range of heated clothing that is sure to prevent Dad moaning about the cold (we deal with enough of that from the kids!).
