If you’ve Googled “gifts for dad,” you’ve likely been greeted with an overwhelming number of whiskey stones and knives. But do dads even like those? What about the dads who are fed up with the constraints of toxic masculinity? What about the dads who just want some pampering?

Whatever the occasion that has you looking for dad gifts (Father’s Day, for example), stray away from clichés and try to think outside the box. Unless your dad is an avid tie collector and seriously *lives* for ties, then avoid this played-out gift. Instead, get him something that says, “I see your hobbies and I respect them.”

Even if your dad is hard to shop for, he deserves something cool and special, like a new gadget, a subscription box, or something that will keep him looking ageless for years to come.

Remember that a gift doesn’t have to fit some sort of arbitrary dad stereotype for it to be a good fit for your dad. Here are some ideas.
