Christmas Gift List for Dad

There’s always someone on your Christmas list that’s hard to buy for. If that person is your dad, Old World Christmas is here to help. We always think our ornaments make the perfect gifts, but we’re breaking the mold to give you the best ideas for the best dads. 

Some dads are sportsmen, and we’ve come up with a lengthy Christmas list of things he’s sure to love. The adventuring dad might appreciate a hand-fashioned Filson wallet or a specialized bag for hunting or fishing. He might be in the market for a new pair of binoculars. There are specialty binoculars for hunting as well as bird watching and they come in handy at sporting events. Maybe you go big and get him his new favorite hunting buddy with a specialty hunting-breed dog. If he already has a faithful hunting companion, that dog might need a few hunting-dog accessories from Orvis. And of course, our list wouldn’t be complete without one ornament, and we think the camping lantern ornament would be the perfect pick.

Your dad might not be the type to float down a river on a raft or rock climb in Yosemite. Your dad might be more into the aprés ski events so an at-home sauna might be the perfect gift for him. After rejuvenating sauna time he might take a power nap on his Hästens mattress. But bring your wallet (and maybe a few other wallets too) because they’re pricey. If price doesn’t hold you back, then maybe spring for a pair of Gucci socks and loafers. If he doesn’t already have one, the very exclusive Patek watch might be on his list. The perfect gift topper ornament for the high-class dad is tuxedo ornament. Some people only wear them for special occasions, but your dad wears them as athlesure.

Some dads have an inquisitive technology or gaming hobby, and your dad might fit into those interests. Bose headphones either the classic noise canceling version or the smaller, wireless pair that are great for a workout and recovery. If he’s a tech guy chances are he already has the latest and greatest phone, but in case he needs an upgrade an iPhone 11 Pro could be a great option. If he already has the phone, but would like to up his access to it, an Apple Watch might be a perfect gift. There are many options and accessories for the watches and they integrate so seamlessly with other Apple products. If he has all the gadgets, but also likes to be outside, he might like this space-age smokeless campfire by Solo Stove. We think these headphone ornaments would represent this tech-dad really well.

Many dads are already or quickly becoming stay-at-home dads. We have a handy list for gifts for dads that are planted, and bloom, at home. This might be too out of the box, but we think a kilt from Utilikilts would be a very handy way to hold a bottle, a pacifier, a diaper and wipes without using his actual hands. But, if he’s not confident or Scottish enough for a kilt, then a trusty masculine diaper bag looks good and also leaves him with both hands ready for action. A reliable baby monitor will ease the stress when he’s on a Zoom call and also needs to check in on the nap status. For the stay-at-home dad on the go a reliable stroller is a must. The YOYO stroller boasts ease in folding, can be worn over the shoulder and is the perfect solution for a busy dad who needs a trusty stroller. We have great baby ornaments and even gift sets to welcome baby, but this onesie ornament is a very common site for the stay-at-home dad.

Dad is a special guy who deserves a special gift. He’s not always easy to shop for, but with some thought, searching and our gift guide, we’re confident you’ll find the perfect gift. And if you can’t, don’t forget Christmas ornaments make great gifts, and we have 1,000s of beautiful, well-themed ornaments.
