It can be hard to buy for the men in our lives. With many of the guys I know, when they need something, they go out and buy it. Also, they don’t tend to have too many things that they want, which they don’t also feel they need. And so the item is purchased.
This all leaves me a little stumped at gift-giving time. It also makes it extra fun to give them something that they didn’t even know they needed.
Here are a few of our favorite gift ideas for the dad who has everything:
For the Travelin’ Dad
Help dad track his travels with this scratch-off-where-you’ve-been map that charts globetrotting in a fun and innovative way. When Dad scratches off the areas he has visited, he’ll reveal adventurous pops of color, as well as local facts. Wrap this one up with a coin for easy scratching – and top with a few scratch lottery tickets.
