Hair Loss Remedies
Maybe he needs it or even sort of wants someone to buy it for him. Still, save it for an everyday present and give Dad something else on Father's Day instead: maybe a cool baseball cap, if that hair loss is really an issue.
Back Shaver
Keep the grooming gifts to things that feel more luxe and pampering than hygenic and personal, like a badger shaving brush James Bond would love.
Ties
Too cliché. Pick an accessory he loves but doesn't have a zillion of, like a classic pair of sunglasses.
Cologne
Dad's going to want to pick out the scent himself—it's a personal thing. If you want to go the toiletry route, opt for something like this travel-sized kit, a lifesaver for last minute weekend or business trip packing.
Aprons
If Dad spends a lot of time in the kitchen, it might seem like a good idea. But he'll probably be more excited by a gadget like a single-cup coffee maker or a juicer or an electric BBQ fork (the last of which is pretty much the same price as an apron).
Fancy Desk Accessories
It's an understandable thought when Dad is the definition of The Man Who Has Everything. But he'd probably want something more fun to play with in his office, then, like a toy drone helicopter or a desktop record player.
#1 Dad Anything
"Best Dad" or "#1 Dad" motifs are cheesy, bu you can still let him know he's the best Dad ever by giving him other stuff like cool beer steins or an orange squeezer for fresh juice every morning.
