Every year, we make the same mistake of buying gifts way too late. When we wait until the last minute, we end up compromising with less-than-perfect items to gift to our family and friends. This year, let us help you with the holiday gifting, so you can shop ahead. You don’t have to take time out of your busy schedule to run around looking for a present. We know you’re swamped with work.

Just in case you’re in need of inspiration on what to get for your dad or the man in your life, here are some items they will love for sure–and maybe need.

Need some inspiration to find the perfect gift for dad?

Beard Balms

Guys love their beards. Whether it’s a short trim or a full beard, you can trust that they’ve experienced many trials and errors to get the look they have—or whatever their genes have given them to work with. Beard balm, conditioner, oil, or soap, whatever it is, dads love anything that can enhance their masculine attributes. Just don’t make them admit it. This is definitely a go-to gift for dad.

Natural Deodorants

Not that your dad smells bad, but anyone could use a little refresher. So what better gift is there than a freshening, natural deodorant? Don’t just get any deodorant, though. Most of the stuff you get at drugstores are tainted with harmful chemicals, so look for a natural deodorant instead to stay fresh, clean, and healthy!

Look, dad is getting old. There’s no avoiding it. But there is prevention in being proactive. Collagen is one of the most important structural components in our bodies and ensures the cohesion, elasticity, and regeneration of skin, bones, tendons, ligaments, and skeletal muscles. The thing is, collagen production decreases by age, so it’s crucial to make sure there’s enough collagen in the diet.

Tomahawk Steak

Steaks, enough said. What meat lover doesn’t love steak? And if there’s one steak in particular that will satisfy all the cravings, it’s the Tomahawk steak. Over two pounds of perfectly marbled prime rib attached to one enormous bone—for extra flavour and juiciness. This is a steak meant to make a statement, and that statement is that you love meat. Don’t worry if you never thought about raw meat as a gift for dad. Seriously, even dad will be impressed with this one.

Dead Sea Mineral Soap

Dead Sea’s mineral rich salts and muds have unique therapeutic value, acting to deeply cleanse and tone while restoring the skin’s natural pH. One of our favourite vendors, One with Nature, crafts amazing skin care products—soap that are vegetable-based, without artificial colour, fragrances, or animal ingredients. Their soap packed with nutrients will leave a youthful appearance. But don’t keep all of it for yourself.

Gift Certificates

Still unsure? Maybe your dad’s taste has changed drastically over the years! In which case, get him a gift certificate, and let him pick up exactly what he needs. Let him find the perfect gift for dad himself. When do buy a gift certificate, you also get Spud credits, and we’ll provide a hot meal for someone in need. It’s the gift that gives back.

Of course, everyone’s dad will have different interests and preferences, but we think these products will really appeal to all the dads out there. Let us know what you end up getting and what your dad likes!
