Pregnancy

Let’s hear it for the man who plays “Dad” opposite your “Mom.” He rubbed your swollen pregnant feet (well, he better have), put together your complicated stroller, and told you that you looked absolutely beautiful even when you were stuffing your face with french fries and hysterically crying during a particularly bad rage of your pregnancy hormones.

He’s probably your best friend. And if he isn’t now, he will be after he receives any one of these thoughtful and amazing gifts this holiday season.

The best gift for dad is obviously subjective, so we’ve gathered up our greatest finds for all kinds–the dad in need of a wardrobe upgrade, the tech-obsessed, the resident grill master, you name it.

The best part is, you’ll both benefit from this gadget gift!

$399


Tundra Haul Cooler

Before becoming dads, did dads like coolers? We’ll never really know. But this we do know: Dads don’t just like coolers, they love them. And the Tundra Haul is the best you can buy him (and yes, it’s worth the steep price tag!). Yeti is the granddaddy of luxe coolers and this latest version has two ultra-tough, puncture-proof wheels that can take on sand, rocky terrains, rugged trails, and more—all while keeping up to 45 cans of beer or 55 pounds of ice at freezer-esque temps.

Big Blanket Co.


$159


Original Stretch Blanket

As a 5′ 2″ woman, I have to admit I never really thought about the throw blanket struggles tall people suffer from. However, I do take snuggling VERY seriously, so when I learned about Big Blanket Co. they had all of my attention. At 10 x 10 their best-selling signature blankets are 50% bigger than a king size quilt–a must-have for movie night but double as the ultimate fort builder. (Because you’re never too old for that.)

Meater


$99.95


Meater Plus

Sure, he might pride himself on his grill prowess and instinct for taking that ribeye off at just the right time, but it’s 2021. There’s an app for that. MEATER, the cleverly named Bluetooth-enabled wireless meat thermometer is the upgrade he never knew he needed. The dual sensor probe monitors both internal and external temperatures to take the guesswork out of cooking allllll the meat, indoors and out.

Moloa Slipper

Even if he doesn’t think he’s a slipper guy, Olukai is bound to convince him otherwise. Designed with their signature fold-down heel, these leather indoor/outdoor slip ons are lined with sheepskin to keep his feet warm and toasty without getting sweaty. Apologies in advance if he starts wearing them out of the house.

The Dad Hoodie

The Dad Hoodie

Not convinced on the diaper bag front? That’s fine. Try the Dad Hoodie instead. It’s like what MacGyver would wear if he had to hotwire a car with a paperclip while also carting a tot around. Interior mesh pockets provide a place for everything without adding bulk or necessitating a bag that slows him down.

Preppy with a dash of personality, the leather driving loafers from Riomar are a dad wardrobe staple.
