Are dads the hardest people to shop for or are dads the hardest people to shop for? We’d clearly say they are. You get them a great gift one year and then realize you have just about…zero ideas for the next. But that’s okay! Leave the ideas to Us.
We’ve picked out 17 gifts that dads will love this holiday season — and they’re all under $50. Win-win! Check out our ideas below and remember to shop fast this year!
For the Homebody Dad
It’s hard to go wrong with a pair of slippers, but you can go so, so right by choosing a special pair labeled just for dad. These “Papa Bear” slippers are cozy and perfect for your pops!

For the Dad Who’s Always Breaking a Sweat
This shower gel is going to change Dad’s life if he’s used to using whatever cheap bar soap he finds. It’s infused with menthol for a cooling effect that will help him feel refreshed after a workout or a long day cooking over a hot stove or grill!
For the Movie Buff Dad
He’s already set with his streaming services and DVDs, but now it’s time to hook him up with every movie lover’s favorite: popcorn! This popcorn maker can produce theater-style popcorn at home in minutes — and it won’t cost $10 per bag!
For the Dad Who’s Always Sore
Whether he’s achy from the gym, work or a bad night’s sleep, this massage gun could become one of the first things he reaches for every day. Can you believe the low price?

For the Bacon-Obsessed Dad
Dads usually can’t get enough bacon, so why not add some to the rim of his margarita or Bloody Mary? This cocktail salt is fun, unique, and most importantly, delicious!

For the Dad Who’s Always Misplacing Everything
He can’t always rely on his spouse or kids to find his lost keys or glasses! This wooden organizer will be his landing spot for all of his essentials. It has a spot to charge his phone too!

For the Dad Whose Other Pride and Joy Is His Car
Dad loves his kids, but the love for his car comes close behind. This car vacuum will help him keep his baby clean. It comes with extensions too to help target different spots!
Get the ThisWorx Car Vacuum Cleaner at Amazon!
For the Dad Who Commandeers the Bathroom
Are his bathroom breaks so long you sometimes wonder if he fell asleep in there? This gag gift, as seen on Shark Tank, will give him a major laugh. It’s like an hourglass…but one you’ll want to wash your hands after touching.

For the Dad Whose Coffee Needs an Extra Kick
We love this gift because it’s for coffee and bourbon lovers alike — extra points if dad is into both! This coffee is infused with bourbon, but while he can enjoy the flavor, there’s no actual alcohol left by the time he drinks it, so he can totally enjoy it in the morning!

For the Dad Who’s First to RSVP to the Ugly Sweater Party
This sweater definitely gave Us a giggle. Santa is clearly over his sleigh days. According to this sweater, he’ll be dropping off gifts on his hog this year!

For the Dad Who Never Misses His Shows
Whether he loves football or sitcoms (or both), he’ll love catching them all live with his Fire TV Stick. And he can always record them if he misses them!

For the Dad Who Can’t Get Enough Pub Food
With this kit, dad can make one dozen soft and salt-dusted pretzels, plus a homemade beer cheese to go along with them. Whether he wants to host a pretzel party or enjoy them for himself, he’ll love this unique gift!
For the Dad Who’s All About Safety and Security
This one’s for the dad who’s always making sure the doors are locked, his passwords are 20 characters long and his car is parked in a secure lot. He’ll majorly appreciate a genuine leather wallet with an RFID-blocking design!
For the Dad Who’s Always Rushing Through Breakfast
He can’t have cereal or plain toast every day, but he doesn’t have to feel like he needs to prepare a huge meal either. This egg bite maker will make a healthier breakfast easy — and fun!
Get the Dash Deluxe Sous Vide Style Egg Bite Maker at Amazon!
For the Dad Who’s a Proud Beer Enthusiast
This cheeky gift is great for a laugh, but it will be useful beyond that! It comes with a pint glass for his favorite beers, plus a bottle opener!

For the Dad Who Misses Golfing in the Winter
If he could golf every day, year round, he probably would! Sadly, the weather often prevents that. With this 3×9 putting green, however, he can get his practice in indoors too!

For the DIY Dad
This one is for the handy dad who takes on every task himself before calling for assistance. It comes with a hammer — that opens up to become multiple types of tools — a tumbler and a keychain to remind him that he’ll always be your hero!
