The Only Holiday Gift Guide For Dad You Need

Is your Dad or husband hard to buy for? Join the club. My husband almost always answers my repeated requests for gift suggestions with “I don’t need anything.” Typically I’m left to my own imagination when it comes to shopping for him. If the men in your life love to travel, explore, wear comfy socks and sweatshirts, we’ve got the holiday gift guide for dad you have been looking for.


1. Bose Noise Canceling Headphones 

Reward Dad for all his hard work with peace and quiet (I know moms. What’s that?). Gift Bose’s latest noise canceling wireless headphones with Amazon “Alexa” command capabilities. Stylish, functional, and perfect for travel, music-loving Dads will fall into quiet bliss on their next flight (or zone out into video game oblivion at night on the couch as they play the new Fallout vide game release).

2. Perfect Weekend Bag 

We all dream of our man having a stylish wardrobe, so treat him to a functional and roomy weekend duffle bag from Herschel. The bag has two handles with a detachable padded shoulder strap and an exterior zipped pocket shoe pouch (shoes have their own compartment so they won’t dirty any clothes inside). And yes, you can steal this whenever you travel too.

3. Coffee Table Travel Book 

We are drooling over this stunning travel guide featuring every country on the planet by Lonely Planet. Whether Dad loves to travel or just learn about different cultures around the world, this coffee table book is sure to keep him and the kids entertained for hours.

4. Feel Good Socks

My husband swears by this brand of socks thanks to the comfort and durability. Best part, the company donates a pair of socks for every pair purchased. Now that’s a company we will gladly support. Looks like he’ll be getting a few more pairs this year!

5. Card Holder

Time for dad to step it up a notch with this leather card holder. It’s perfect for travel, especially when you need to switch your wallet to your front pocket in high traffic areas. Monogramming is available to add that extra personal touch when he hits the road… and so he will know which is his in the security line at the airport.

Holiday Gift Guide for Dad

6. Travel guide book 

Let’s get dad involved in the vacation planning process, shall we? Send him on a journey to the 225 most amazing places in the world with a hardcover addition book by National Geographic. Set it on the coffee table for endless conversation and exploration. Who knows, maybe he’ll even get inspired to whisk you off on a little couples getaway. Miracles do happen!

7. Stylish Sweatshirt for Travel, Soccer games and Tailgate

Who doesn’t enjoy being warm and cozy in a sweatshirt? It’s time for Dad’s worn college sweatshirt to be retired and replaced with a french terry cloth variety. Snuggle up for a day of travel or a fall tailgate, or just steal it from his dresser drawer. We won’t tell.

8. Monogrammed Luggage Tag 

No more lost luggage! Dad is getting an upgraded luggage tag in his stocking this year. Choose from nine different color variations and monograms to customize a tag to Dad’s tastes and the luggage you bought him too.

9. Leather Travel Toiletries Bag

Every Dad needs a leather travel bag to hold his toiletries or shave kit. Laser engraving is available with a variety of custom monograms to choose from. The bags come in three different sizes depending on Dad’s needs, so no more excuses men. You can’t have space in our toiletry bags anymore and YOU can hold the kids’ toothbrushes from now on.

10. Customizable Valet 

Change, keys, Chapstick, random receipts… is it just me or does the man in your life empty his pockets on the counter and walk away? Keep him organized with this dual compartment and customizable valet. Perfect to sit atop a dresser or bedside table. Chances are you will want one for the kitchen too. We’re just sayin’.
