Subscribe to Style
Keep dad in style with all the latest looks with a clothing subscription. You can choose from services that coordinate complete outfits, options for accessories only or providers that select a handful of garments for each shipment. It's a simple solution for a dad who takes pride in his appearance but never has time to shop or dislikes the shopping experience itself. Pricing varies quite a bit; in some cases dad will need to pay a styling fee while with other services he'll pay only for the items he keeps.
A Cut Above
Practical tools can be the perfect gift, and a pocket knife is such a useful choice that it's hard to go wrong. For a more sentimental approach, consider a knife with a laser-cut personal message, or go ultra-functional with a multi-tool design. Keep in mind that lesser quality blades may require more frequent sharpening, but they'll generally do the job just as well as pricier models. Also be conscious of the weight and features like safety catches that may affect comfort and usability.
Game for Golf
An avid golfer never tires of golfing gear, so it's usually a safe bet for gifting. If you're knowledgeable enough about his preferences, you can always add a new club to his collection. However, there are plenty of other useful gifts a golfer can appreciate, from a sleeve of quality balls to a book about a legendary player. A new set of gloves can improve his grip (and his game) while a new hat or shirt can give him something he can sport on the course.
