1. Grab this waterproof speaker if Dad likes music for every occasion.
Wireless Bluetooth Speaker – $27.99 shipped (regularly $49.99)
We love this affordable and compact speaker from Sony! It’s a mini portable speaker with extra bass so it may be tiny, but it sure is mighty when it comes to sound. Plus, it’s waterproof so Dad can take it on every adventure. As a bonus, it comes with a convenient strap so it’s ready to hang by the pool, on his kayak, or wherever else the melody takes him.
2. This Lululemon shirt is often on sale and is our Hip Sidekick’s favorite shirt to wear.
Lululemon Metal Vent Tech Short Sleeve Shirt – $39+ shipped (regularly $78)
Dad will love having some of these sporty shirts to throw on whether he’s lounging at home or planning to head out to the gym. The Lululemon name brand is sure to impress and they come in every color imaginable.
Our Hip sidekick, Adam, shared that these Lululemon shirts are his absolute favorite shirts as a busy dad of 3! He said he wears them nearly every day and owns many colors! As a bonus, he also shared they are almost always in the “We Made Too Much” sale at Lululemon so you’ll never have to pay full price.
3. This sentimental book is perfect for younger kiddos to gift Dad.
There’s nothing like knowing why you’re loved and this book is the perfect thing to record those precious notes from your kiddo. Even sweeter, our Hip reader, Chelsey writes in it every year from her daughter. How sweet!
“When my daughter was 2 or 3, we got my husband one of these books. I asked her the questions and wrote down what she said. Now every other year we add a little note with her new answers. When she was little the answers were super funny, like I love when you give me ice cream (please do that every day) and as she’s getting older the responses are more thought out.” – Chelsey, Hip reader
4. Dad will love having these slip-on shoes for days he needs to look a little more dressed up.
Vostey Men’s Slip-On Shoes – $46.99 shipped (regularly $50)
Clip the 10% OFF digital coupon
Final cost just $42.29 SHIPPED
Our Hip sidekick, Shane, shared how his wife bought him these shoes and they’re perfect for when he needs to look a little more put together. They also look identical to Sperry’s, but are a fraction of the cost and currently the best price they’ve ever been on Amazon! They’re easy to slip on, are non-slip, and ultra-soft inside so he won’t hesitate to wear them without socks.
5. Save Dad money on disposable razors with our team’s favorite trimmer.
The Meridian Trimmer Classic – $50 (regularly $74)
Our Hip team of men and women love this trimmer! It includes one waterproof trimmer w/ built-in anti-nick guard, 1 replaceable ceramic blade, 2 adjustable guide combs, a cleaning brush, and a USB charger. We found that this trimmer reduces your chances of ever getting nicks/ cuts, ingrown hairs, or razor burn. Plus, it can be used wet or dry.
6. Keep dad at home more often with this highly rated indoor putting green.
Indoor Putting Green Matt $62.59 (regularly $73.99)
Clip the $10 OFF digital coupon
Final cost $52.59 SHIPPED
Many dads are saying this is the closest thing to a real putting surface, the mat doesn’t wrinkle like other roll away putting greens, and it’s thicker and more durable so the ball doesn’t easily roll away. Our Hip dads have this at the top of their list this year so if you have a golf lover you’d like to see home more often, these gifts for dad are a no-brainer!
Hip Tip: We heard golf balls on sale will go well with this gift. 😉
7. Save every forgetful dad’s sanity with these Tile tracking devices.
Tile Pro Tracker – $31.19 (regularly $34.99)
How many times have you called your man’s phone only to find it’s on silent? That’s not a problem when you’re using a Tile Tracker! And, when you’re not in range, you can view your Tile’s most recent location which is super helpful. These even work great for golf bags, car keys, and anything else dad tends to forget.

8. The Blackstone griddle has become one of the top gifts for Dad this year.
Blackstone 2-Burner 28″ Griddle – $197 SHIPPED (regularly $229)
Think of ALL the delicious meals Dad will be cooking up with this griddle. 😍 Any dad will appreciate this gift idea whether he’s new to the grill or retired and living large and the price is so much more affordable than a Weber. 😏 It can be used to bake, sear, roast, and sauté and it fits a TON of burgers, hot dogs, strips of bacon, or anything else you want to cook. Plus, you can easily wheel it around to the shady spots in the backyard! The griddle top is removable and the legs fold up if you’d like to take this on your next camping trip or tailgate party.
9. An electric bike will allow Dad to pick up a fun new hobby or get around even easier.
Oraimo Electric Bike $599.99 (regularly $699.99)
Clip the $100 OFF digital coupon
Shipping is $30
Final cost $529.99 SHIPPED
This is a splurge-worthy gift we’d highly recommend if Dad has been itching to pick up a new hobby. Even better, if you have older kids who already love biking around town, this could be a great bonding experience for them all. This fast-charging bike can ride for 7 miles after just 15 minutes of charging and offers a pure electric mode range of 28-35 miles and a pedal-assisted mode range of 28-45 miles. Basically, Dad will have no problem keeping up. 😉 It’s a comfortable ride with a 12-month warranty and a gift he’ll be bragging about.
10. This is one of those gifts for dads we’re sure he’ll use daily.

They connect to your devices with USB-C or lightning cables. You can even charge wirelessly by placing your device right on top of the power bank.
14. Dads who like Star Wars with their whiskey will love this decanter set.

Clip the 5% OFF digital coupon
Final cost $27.54 SHIPPED
Dad will love kicking back in the man cave, watching his favorite Star Wars clips and pouring himself a glass of whiskey from this fun Star Wars decanter. Plus, it’ll be a fun conversation piece whenever he has the guys over too. Cheers!
15. Treat Dad to an experience he’ll never forget.
Experiences – priceless 😉
An experience is something Dad will really cherish. He likely spends a significant time away from home while he’s working so getting to create memories with the ones he loves most or doing something where he can truly unwind will make this gift a real winner in his book.
Consider checking places like Groupon where you can treat him to an array of different activities from golf to skydiving. As another idea, check local businesses or restaurants for fun experiences such as going beer tasting at his favorite local brewery.
