Some family members are harder to buy for than others… *cough* DAD *cough*. And it’s temping to have a standard go-to gift… *cough* SOCKS AND UNDIES *cough*. But it doesn’t have to be that way.

It’s a little-known fact that we at hardtofind like to refer to ourselves as ‘Masters of the Dad Gift’ (we’re really humble like that). After sifting through mountains upon mountains of gifts for him (we’re also prone to exaggeration), we like to think we’ve fine-tuned just what makes an awesome, memorable gift for Dad… Buy two flights to California and a round of 18 holes on Pebble Beach golf course! (Jokes. Who can afford that?!) Instead, try looking for a gift for Dad, keeping these three things in mind:

1. Will it stroke his ego and make him feel like the best damn dad that ever walked the Earth? (Or at the very least, will it make him think you rate him higher than Mum?)

2. Is it practical? Can he use it? Dads love practical stuff they can use.

3. Can he show it off to all his mates on ‘The Facebook’? #humblebrag
