2020 Holiday Gift Guide for Dads


The Holiday Gift Guide is our largest project of the year! It's a large effort that we have been working on for months. We personally try all of the items and then share the best products and gift ideas in the gift guide. We hope that you enjoy this selection of gift ideas for 2020! 

U.S. Polo Assn. is an iconic brand that you will want to check out for the holiday season. They offer authentic clothing that has been officially sanctioned by the U.S. Polo Association, the governing body for the sport of polo in the U.S. since 1890.  My husband loves the Space Dye Thermal Henley in Maroon Fall and the Thermal Crew Neck Shirt in Olive Green. These long sleeve shirts are perfect for winter because they are incredibly soft and comfortable. They are also easy to care for since they are machine washable. U.S. Polo Assn. clothing is available in over 180 countries at independent retail stores, department stores, U.S. Polo Assn. brand stores, and on the U.S. Polo Assn. website


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 years. My husband uses the CeraVe Foaming Facial Cleanser because it gently removes oil without disrupting the protective skin barrier. The hyaluronic acid helps to retain skin's natural moisture and the niacinamide helps to calm the skin.  In the morning, he uses the CeraVe Skin Renewing Day Cream. At night, he uses the CeraVe Skin Renewing Night CreamThese moisturizers use hyaluronic acid to help maintain your skin's natural moisture. They also contain Retinol to help to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles which is incredibly important in our 40's.  These moisturizers have been part of his routine for over a year now. More recently, he began using the CeraVe Skin Renewing Vitamin C Serum.  This serum helps with uneven skin tone, fine lines, and wrinkles.  It is a gentle and lightweight serum. In addition to vitamin C, it also contains ceramides, hyaluronic acid, and soothing vitamin B5 to help improve texture, restore the skin's protective barrier, and improve hydration. My husband raves that it helps with his uneven skin tone. In particular, he has brown spots from sun damage on his cheeks.  He noticed that his skin tone looks better, especially on his cheeks. These products are perfect for holiday gifts since good skincare is important to dads!



ChapStick offers festive lip care products that are both practical and festive. Our entire family uses ChapStick products during the dry winter months, so it is nice to fill stockings with holiday varieties.  You may even hang them on your tree. My husband loves the candy cane variety. They also have Pumpkin Pie, Holiday Cocoa, Sugar Cookie, and Vanilla Latte!


Kingston offers innovative products that make it easier to work during the quarantine.  I recently saw a comedy video in which parents were taking turns working from their car because that was the only way that they could find a quiet space for work meetings without their children being loud in the background. It's not easy to work from home and homeschool children. It requires a lot of shuffling! Whether you are shuffling around to quiet places throughout the day or have sensitive work data that you need to protect, Kingston has you covered.  First, the Kingston Nucleum is a 7-in-1- USB hub that allows you to stay powered up with your notebook and a mouse, monitor, and other accessories.  My husband uses it with a MacBook and is even able to connect an external hard drive and iPhone. It's a great gift for dads in 2020!  


The Kingston DataTraveler 2000 Encrypted USB Drive is designed to be secure with an alphanumeric keypad to lock the drive. Personally, my husband uses it at home so that our children don't accidentally access a drive with important work documents. As my children get older, it's also good for use at school so that no one is able to copy assignments or other important documents. This drive uses Full Disk AES 256-bit hardware-based encryption and may be used on any device with a USB2.0 or USB 3.1 Gen 1 (USB 3.0) port. The admin pin enables admin access to the drive and ability to issue a new user pin if someone forgets their pin. The admin may also pre-provision a drive with pre-loaded content that is read-only.

The Kingston DataTraveler Locker+ G3 Encrypted USB Drive  protects work with automatic cloud backup. It's really cool because it has hardware encryption and password protection. An extra security measure is that the drive locks and reformats after 10 failed login attempts so that users don't have to worry if the drive is lost or stolen. At the same time, they are able to optionally use the cloud backup option to back up to Google Drive, OneDrive (Microsoft.), Amazon Cloud Drive, Dropbox or Box, so if the drive is lost or stolen, their data is in a safe place.  It's really great for anyone, but especially children who sometimes lose things.  Of course, I should mention that the Kingston team paid close attention to the user experience when they designed this drive and that we find it easy to use.  These drives are perfect gifts for busy dads who work from home this year!


Sweet Maria's is the best place to find 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 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. I actually never know what will be in the sampler until it arrives, but I trust the experts at Sweet Maria's to curate green coffee beans that my husband will love. They never let me down. My husband has found many of his favorite green coffee beans through their samplers and you will always find him enthusiastically roasting coffee on Christmas morning after he opens his gift. 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!

No Whey Chocolate offers vegan holiday chocolates. The chocolatiers at No Whey are incredibly talented with their unique recipes. They offer premium chocolates that are 100% milk free, peanut free, tree nut free, gluten free, egg free, and soy free. There are no artificial colors and flavors. They are vegan and kosher!  We recommend the Vegan Advent Calendar, Peppermint No No's, and Vegan Peppermint Bark. The Vegan Advent Calendar contains delicious holiday themed chocolates. The Peppermint No No's and Vegan Peppermint Bark are perfect for stocking stuffers!


I hope that you enjoyed this glimpse into our favorite gifts for dads this holiday season!
