The Holiday Gift Guide for Dads!


Welcome to our Holiday Gift Guide for Dads!  The Holiday Gift Guide is our largest project of the year. Our search for the best gift ideas began in August. We even pulled out Christmas decorations in early October to start taking photographs. We brainstormed hundreds of ideas and the gifts below made it to the top of our list.  We hope that you enjoy many of these fun and memorable gift ideas!


Sugarlands Distillary  is an award winning distillary in downtown Gatlinburg, Tennessee. This company has made moonshine trendy again. Their unique flavors of moonshine are popping up everywhere, including high end publications such as Bon Appetit.  We have joined the bandwagon of those who rave about their trendy moonshine varieties. These adult beverages come in unique varieties such as Appalachian Apple Pie, Maple Bacon, Old Fashioned Lemonade, Cole Swindell's Peppermint, Orange Appalachian Sippin' Cream, Tickle's Dynamite Cinnamon, Southern Sweet Tea Moonshine, and more! Visit here to see the extensive list of flavors. We have personally tried several varieties of their moonshine and think that they are deserving of the 20 awards that they have won internationally since 2014.  We love these trendy jars of moonshine that make nostalgic and whimsical gifts!  Click here to visit Sugarlands Distilling Company.




Sweet Maria's is the ultimate source for green coffee beans. This brand is iconic to coffee connoisseurs who roast their own coffee beans since high quality green coffee beans create amazing results. (Read more about coffee roasting at Sweet Maria's here.)   We've featured Sweet Maria's for several years because the green coffee bean sampler is my husband's favorite holiday gift that he looks forward to every year. For instance, we love the 8-pound espresso sampler shown in the photo. My husband has found many of his favorite green coffee beans through their samplers. Sweet Maria's conducts multiple trips each year to connect with leaders of coops and to make deals for the best batches. They do an amazing job and we look forward to their best finds!

Related Garments is perfect for the holidays, especially if your family has a common tradition of updating basics like socks and underwear at this time of year. Related Garments offers a subscription service that sends trendy and coordinated socks and underwear for men.  You may have seen them mentioned in trendy places such as the New York Post, Vogue, Esquire, Men's Health, People, and more. They offer monthly deliveries of No Show Socks, Long Socks, and Boxer Briefs. The subscriptions are flexible as you choose the perfect subscription that best fits you and there are no commitments if you want to opt out of future deliveries.  Personally, we get the hype -- their garments are comfortable and excellent quality. It's hard to switch to another brand after you've tried Related Garments because their products are so nice. This is a trendy holiday gift that will be appreciated throughout the year! We love Related Garments so much that we asked if they could share a discount code for our readers.  Use the code TMR for 20% off! Visit Related Garments here



CeraVe is my husband's go-to skincare brand. Actually, my entire family uses this brand. If you follow regularly, you know that our dermatologist recommended this brand and that we have used their products for several years. My husband has slightly different skin than me.  His skin tends to be combination to oily. He also experiences occasional breakouts, so he rotates through the products that he uses depending on whether his skin is experiencing breakouts.  After 40-something years, he has his perfect skincare routine thanks to CeraVe. The CeraVe Renewing SA Cleanser is fantastic because it gently cleanses and exfoliates while softening and smoothing skin. The salicylic acid helps with acne and the ceramides help to boost skin's moisture. The CeraVe Hydrating Hyaluronic Acid Serum replenishes hydration for instantly smoother and softer skin. It's a great step to use before moisturizer because it locks in moisture while helping to restore and reinforce the protective skin barrier.  He then rotates using daytime and evening moisturizers. The CeraVe Ultra-Light Moisturizing Lotion with Sunscreen provides SPF 30 broad spectrum protection. If you live in Texas, a good daily moisturizer with sunscreen is critical.  This one is for normal to oily skin and provides both protection and good results. It's recommended for daily use by the Skin Cancer Foundation.  The CeraVe PM Facial Moisturizing Lotion is amazingly ultra lightweight and oil free which is perfect for his skin. It moisturizes throughout the night and helps to restore the protective skin barrier with three essential ceramides, niacinamide, and hyaluronic acid.  




CHESTER is an incredible luggage brand that is perfect for travel during the holidays and throughout the year. We recommend the Minima Carry-On Spinner Suitcase that has a modern design and is light weight with nice organizational features. It also has a TSA approved lock. It meets TSA and IATA cabin baggage guidelines for carryon luggage. Visit CHESTER!




Wine Insiders provides expertly curated wines from 40 crowd-pleasing varietals and 15 top wine regions. They source high quality and low priced wines, saving you from typical markups association with marketing, advertising, and store operations. Have you ever visited a grocery store wall of wine and wondered how to choose a bottle of wine with limited information? If you buy something that you dislike, you swallow the cost both literally and figuratively. Wine Insiders understands the dilemma. That's why they employee a team of experts and strive to offer 100% satisfaction.  They have 4.9 out of 5 stars on Google with over a thousand positive Google reviews. They also offer a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee that you will love every bottle you try, and if you are not completely satisfied, they promise to make it right.  We recommend Wine Insiders for holiday gifts and parties. If you order 6+ bottles at a time, they offer free shipping with the wines delivered to your door or to a convenient pickup location. Visit Wine Insiders!



Cubii is the original compact seated elliptical that helps you to work out without sacrificing time. You are able to quickly add more strides to your day, burn calories, lose weight, and boost energy, all while you sit. Track your workouts with the built-in LCD monitor.  Cubii comes in three models. We have the Cubii Jr. They also have a nice little mat to put under your Cubii which I recommend because it is good quality and lightweight. My entire family loves Cubii. Read about our experience here. Visit Cubii!



CleverMade Collapsible Crates with Lids are one of those products that I should have known about years ago because the concept is perfect for growing families.  The concept is simple - the crates are nice and sturdy for when we need them, but then collapse into a compact form when we don't need them. The photo above shows the crates in both expanded and collapsed states. They are perfect for holiday decorations, sports equipment, toys, clothing, and more. Visit CleverMade!



The Craft Beer of the Month Club from AmazingClubs.com is a fun gift that many dads will look forward to throughout the year. As the largest beer of the month club in America, we deliver the country’s best craft beers each month right to your door.  From IPAs and Belgium Wheats to Hefeweizens and hopped-up Ales, the beer lover on your list can experience all kinds of specialty beers without leaving home.  Each shipment includes 4 different beers from 2 different breweries along with a detailed description of each selection.  Plus, they also include their beer lover’s newsletter with fun facts and background info on each selection.  Subscriptions start at $39.95 per month with free shipping. Visit AmazingClubs.com!




Honeydew Sleep Scrumptious Pillows are a nice holiday gift, especially for parents who treasure a good night of sleep. This trendy California-based family business has spent years working to perfect their pillows. The Scrumptious Side Sleeper Pillow is one of their iconic pillows. Rather than a traditional rectangular shape, their slide sleeper pillow is meticulously designed with a curved center.  They also gave careful attention given to the height and firmness. Personally, I love laying down and melting into the Scrumptious Side Sleeper Pillow that is soft and supportive. Visit Honeydew Sleep



The Menlo House offers trendy clothing for men.  We love their great selection and especially love the Menlo Club which is a quarterly subscription box for men that features the latest fashions. It's a great gift for the men in your life because their stylists are talented at their jobs.  For instance, the photo above shows clothing and sunglasses that they curated for my husband. The styling of this outfit was perfect because it fit his preferences, but with special twists and careful attention to the latest trends. Their stylists consider each unique customer's style preferences when they curate the box while also being on top of the latest trends. It's also a great value. My husband's quarterly box included a nice pair of slim jeans, a long sleeve t-shirt with a stylish cut and seam down the middle, a light gray jacket with soft fabric, and stylish sunglasses in a case.  This quarterly gift subscription is a lot of fun to look forward to each season.  Visit The Menlo House!


The ToiletTree Countertop Makeup Mirror with Jewelry Tray - LED Touch Light and Magnifying Mirror and the ToiletTree Nose Hair Trimmer with LED Light - Stainless Steel Heavy Duty Casing are nice gifts for grooming routines. We love the 360 degree swivel feature of this mirror that makes it easy to switch between 1x and 5x magnification. A simple tap on the button located on the mirror turns the light on.  The base is nice to store jewelry.  The nose hair trimmer is great for grooming. It's a good quality product and even offers an LED light.  Visit ToiletTree!


Birchbox offers a monthly grooming subscription for men. Personally, I have been a Birchbox member for ten months and absolutely love the monthly boxes that they have curated for me. (Click here to see some recent boxes.)  My husband sometimes borrows some of the skincare products from my monthly boxes, so I was excited to see a version of Birchbox for men. Similar to me, he loves to try new products. The Birchbox Monthly Grooming subscription is similar to my subscription as it is also personalized based on how he rates the deluxe samples from his boxes. This month's box was fantastic for him as it contained [Comfort Zone] brand Essential Face Scrub, Brickell Men's Products Restoring Eye Balm, Kiehl's Age Defender Gel Moisturizer, Marlowe No. 024 Deodorant for Men, and The Wolf Project Hydrating Face Mask Sheet.
