We’ve all faced the daunting task of finding a present for someone impossible to shop for, and one of those people is probably your dad. Certain times of the year, like Christmas, his birthday, and Father’s Day, are when this problem rears its ugly head, and the stress of not knowing what to get him is real.

If one of those times is approaching and the race to find the perfect present is on, check out this list of 12 gifts for hard to buy for men. We promise there’s something in here even the toughest of critics will love.

 

 

Sentimental Gifts for Hard to Buy for Men

Dads are emotional creatures at heart, and appealing to their sensitive nature is always a safe bet. They love to receive reminders of how much their family loves them, so we’ll start with some sentimental gifts for the hard to buy for dad.

1. Personalized Wallet

There’s no better way to remind Dad every day how much he’s impacted your life than with a personalized wallet. Not only will Dad carry his money in style in this beautiful split leather wallet, but he’ll also carry around a unique token of his family’s love.

That token is the engraved message he’ll see when he opens the wallet, where you can leave Dad a message straight from the heart. Your personalized note is guaranteed to move him, plus you can engrave his initials on the outside. Who knew buying for the difficult dad in your life could be so easy?

2. Personalized Photo Album

Dads love photo albums, but they’re not always the best at setting aside time to put them together. If Dad’s been intending to print out his favorite snaps for as long as you can remember, a personalized photo album makes a fantastic gift.

There are tons of online options to put together a collection of Dad’s favorite photos, and you can organize them any way you want, such as photos from over the years, vacation snaps, or special occasions. It’s a simple gift, but he’ll love it because it’s tailor-made to him. And the personalized ones are the most unforgettable gifts

Bring out his playful side with any one of these fun gifts for hard to buy for dads.

3. Personalized Cigar Box

Does your dad love cigars? If he does, we’ve got excellent news for you: cigar lovers are incredibly easy to shop for. Do Dad a favor and help him enjoy every cigar to the fullest with a custom engraved wooden cigar box to house all his favorites.

Pulling a cigar out of this handsome box elevates the whole experience, and he can also store other small keepsakes there, too, if he likes. This present is sure to please cigar lovers and hard to shop for dads alike. 

4. Bluetooth Showerhead

Who doesn’t want to listen to their favorite music in the shower? And who hasn’t been frustrated by the risk of water ruining their stereo system?

Luckily, times have changed and so has technology, which is now so advanced that we can rock out to our favorite tunes while we get clean. Energize Dad’s mornings and get him a Bluetooth showerhead that’ll fill his showers with the music he loves. Dad will love this showerhead so much he may never leave the bathroom again.

5. Personalized Hip Flask

A big part of drinking is having accessories that elevate your cool factor while you drink, and a stylish hip flask is one way to achieve that hip look. You can get Dad the black stainless steel version, or if you know he’s not into black, there’s always the rustic glass alternative. Either way, they both look fantastic.

Besides being super slick and unique, you can laser engrave this present with his name or initials, plus you can etch a message on the back. The message doesn’t have to be long, just a little something to tell him he’s the best. Shopping for the difficult to buy for dad just got a whole lot easier with the personalized hip flask.

Useful Gifts for the Hard to Shop for Dad

When you don’t know what to get your dad, we always recommend going for something practical that he’ll get lots of use out of. You can’t go wrong with any of our useful gift ideas for the hard to buy for Dad.

6. Travel Iron

Does your dad travel a lot for work? If business trips are a regular thing for him, consider getting him a compact travel iron he can pack in his suitcase.

There’s no bigger bummer than a subpar hotel iron that doesn’t get all the wrinkles out of your shirts when you need to get out the door for an important meeting. The travel iron will save Dad from looking disheveled, and he’ll be eternally grateful for your foresight in gifting him this life-saving item.   

7. Automated Tie Rack

The automatic tie rack is next up on the list of useful gifts for hard to buy for dads. Every dad has ties, probably lots of ties, and every dad needs a place to store them. Modernize his tie storage with an automated tie rack that will make getting dressed in the morning a little bit more fun.

8. Automatic Can Opener

While not a glamorous gift by any means, an automatic can opener will save Dad from the inconvenience of his old school hand-held can opener. It’s a purely practical present, but the electric can opener is a welcome addition to any kitchen. If your dad doesn’t have one, it’s time for an upgrade.

Miscellaneous Gifts for Hard to Buy for Guys

Our last category includes items that don’t quite fit into any of the above groups but still make awesome gifts for the dad you’re just never quite sure how to shop for.

9. Digital Coin Counter

Everyone’s got loose change hanging around, but not everyone has a functional place to store loose dimes and pennies. Help Dad keep track of his extra coins by getting him a digital coin counter, which displays the amount of money in his piggy bank and eliminates the need for counting.

The digital coin counter is a lighthearted, yet useful (and relatively inexpensive) gift that Dad will be happy to receive. You may even encourage him to save a little, too.

10. Multi-Tool Pen

Never heard of a multi-tool pen? We hadn’t either, but now is the perfect time to try one out as a fun gift for a hard to buy for dad.

Multi-Tool Pen

There are two types: multi-tools that include a pen, and regular pens that come with handy functions, such as a bubble level, tweezers, hole punch, and saw, among other things. Whatever you choose, you’re sure to keep dad entertained.

11. Cooling Pillow

Helping Dad improve his sleep health is an excellent way to show him you love him, and you can do that with a cooling pillow he’ll enjoy sleeping on in summer—and throughout the rest of the year, since most guys tend to sleep hot.

cooling pillow | Pillow

What’s the difference between a regular pillow and a cooling pillow? The latter refers to any pillow that is temperature neutral and helps the sleeper stay relatively cool. They’re available in latex and gel-infused memory foam, and you can even find them with water chambers.

Dad may have already thought of cooling sheets, but he probably doesn’t have a cooling pillow to get him through the hotter months of the year. He’s sure to thank you for this one.

12. Milk Frother

Last on our list of gifts for hard to shop for dads is the perfect way to make dad’s cup of morning coffee even better: a milk frother that will give his cappuccino or latte that café worthy flourish.

Milk Frother | stylish Milk Frother

There are different kinds of milk frothers available, from handheld motorized whisks to hand-pump milk frothers, but our recommendation is to get dad an electric model. Electric milk frothers are easy to use, heat milk as well as foam it, and are reasonably priced.

Trust us when we say that Dad’s coffee will never be the same.

Forget the Stress of Gift Giving

Shopping for the difficult to buy for dad in your life doesn’t have to be mission impossible. Forget the stress of gift giving with one of our ideas, which will be a hit no matter what the occasion. And if he’s hard to buy for because he already has it all, check out our gift-giving guide for men who everything.

When it comes to gifts for hard to buy for men, Swanky Badger knows a thing or two about getting it right. We make heartfelt presents for every man, so whether he’s more of a classic wooden watch kind of guy or the pocket journal type of dad, you know where to go for his next favorite present.

I explained my problem to someone online and she suggested that I should contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that don’t believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I meant a spell caster called Dr Zuma zuk and I email him, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened, that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him, that was how we started living together happily again.

When i read a testimony online on how Dr Jumba the great and most powerful spell caster helped to bring back Divorce husband or wife EX LOVER. I was wondering how this can be true, Because many have failed me in the past without any result from them. I just let the post pass by and move on to the forum. To my notice under again, Some person posted and said tested and trusted spell caster. After reading through the mail it was this same man Dr Jumba she was talking about. So i have no other option than to really check up how he works.I was totally devastated when my beloved husband left me. It was like my entire world vanishing into sorrow and pain. I know it sounds weird but out of all the spell casters I contacted, he was the only one to give me that impression of being so true and trustful. More than his words,He brought my husband back and he made all my wishes come true. He is now loyal, pays attention to me, he offers me flowers every Sunday, and we often go out at the cinema and the restaurant. My husband came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promised never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. My family are living together happily again.. I will be forever thankful for turning my life from hell to heaven! I believe those who need help should get to him for help. May God continue to use you to save broken relationships. To every one with marital problems, divorce issues, lost lovers or any relationship related issues, you can contact Dr Jumba wonders the ultimate spell caster via email address wiccalovespelltools@gmail.com  , WEBSITE :  https://drjumbaspellhome.wordpress.com Whatsapp messenger : +19085174108

I contacted him and he told me what to do and I did it then he did a Love spell for me. 28 hours later, my husband really called me and told me that he missed me and the kids so much, So Amazing!! So that was how he came back that same day,with lots of love and joy,and he apologized for his mistake,and for the pain he caused me and the kids. Then from that day,our Marriage was now stronger than how it were before, All thanks to Dr Jumba. he is so powerful and i decided to share my story on the internet that Dr.Jumba is real spell caster who i will always pray to live long to help his children in the time of trouble, if you are here and you need your ex lover back or save your marriage fast.
