It's tough to shop for dads. The usually don't really need anything. That doesn't mean we don't want to give them gifts, though. My strategy is usually to go with something completely novel and unnecessary. I feel like it usually works.
Today I've put together a gift guide with some items that are useful and some that really aren't but are fun nonetheless. Hopefully you can find something on this list that you think will fit your father's interests and likes. So let's shop!
This is just bizarre. But how fun is it? Very. This Sodas like peanut butter and jelly and sweet corn also exist. It's just something fun to try.
