top 5 gifts for dad

Vader’s Little Princess Book

Many of our dads are probably from a generation when Star Wars was really popular. If it happens that your father is a huge fan and you are his only daughter, get him an illustrated book called Vader’s Little Princess.

For Star Wars fanatics, a hilarious look at Darth Vader raising a pint-sized Princess Leia—and all the parenting trials, like saying definite no to the metal bikini, is definitely a right gift to go with. It is also a very nice gift for all newborn girl dads – I believe that those tips might be really handy sometime in the future. So look for this gift and make your dad happy with this truly unique and super fun book.

Gift Sets for Dad

Gift sets are always a great gift idea for Dad. There are many different versions of gift sets that include shampoos, shower gels, shaving foam, and many other items. Gift sets with personal care items are especially great if your Dad has a tight budget or lives on fixed income.

You can also make a gift basket yourself, or you can buy an already made set online or in local department stores such as Target. Plus, you can cut the price and increase the joy of shopping if you use Target coupons from savings sites like Chameleon John.

Clothing (fun or practical)

Clothing is also very handy for all dads. Especially if every time you meet up with your dad you see that he is wearing the same old shirt he’s had for years. You can pamper him and gift some new pieces for his wardrobe that will renew or refresh his look. You can even personalize the outfit or get some fun and unique pieces. Be creative and don’t be afraid to gift some fine quality clothing that you know will look great on your dad.

An Amazing Watch

Every gentleman should have at least one nice and luxurious watch.


To make a nice and sentimental gift, you can get one expensive watch that will serve its time-telling purpose while adding some style to your Dad’s wardrobe. You can even have the back engraved with something sentimental to make the gift even more special and heartwarming. Just show your love and every dad will be happy to get this gift for sure.

A Cookbook Just for Dad

Finally, if you father loves to cook, then look for some fun and easy to read cookbooks that can make a great gift, too. You can even find some specialized cookbooks written just for dads.

For instance – a cook about cooking meat will teach your dad new tricks like how to make the best steaks and let him be a proud cook for ages. When he serves those great tasting steaks you’ll know it’s all because of you!

Do you only gift your dad with special gifts during holidays and special occasions, or do you like to give him gifts “just because”? Share some of your favorite gift ideas with us in the comments.
