For the Active Dad

While you have been living as a potato couch, your dad is training for the next marathon, running few miles every day or doing fifty laps in the swimming pool. Get your athletic dad his workout gear from the best sports brands in the universe. Check out the latest collection of clothing and shoes, along with state-of-the-art workout gear from Nike, PUMA and New Balance. You will get running shoes, basketball shoes, baseball shoes and more from these brands. If your dad loves golf, then he will love nothing better than a set of great golf clubs, golf balls and other golf equipment.

For the Outdoorsy Dad

If your dad still goes hiking and camping get him hiking shoes from Nike, or good sturdy boots. While buying shoes make sure they are ultra-light, a great rubber sole with good traction and a wide toe box for optimum balance. You can also get all the necessities for camping like tents, flashlights, fishing poles, water bottles, maps, compass, and other tools at Walmart. Get him something that he will love like Engraved Sportsman’s Gift Set.

For the Homebody Dad

Some dads like to stay at home, keep things organized, cook and clean. They are relaxed and like to spend time with a good book, watching games and spending time with their loved ones. Buy your darling father kitchen appliances from Best Buy and Target, great barcaloungers, home appliances like vacuum cleaners, or little cleaning robots from iRobots. Get him a yearlong subscription of Sports Illustrated and you will be his favorite, for at least a year.

Thank God for dads who grill! Get him the best grilling equipment like Cuisinart 10-Piece Premium Grilling Set from Best Buy, Target or Walmart.

Nothing trumps giving your dad what he wants while saving money yourself.

For the Sensitive Dad

Your dad still keeps a picture of you when you were a baby in his wallet. He regales his guests with stories of his favorite moments. He wears his feelings on his sleeve and is not afraid to show them. Get your sensitive father something that he will love through the years. Gift him a customized photo album with all his favorite pictures or a digital photo frame that will display the pictures he carries in his wallet.


For the Laidback Dad
