Shopping for your spouse can be hard, but shopping for their dad can be a bit more complicated. What do you get the guy who raised your significant other? The guy your babies call “paw paw”!? Don’t you dare get him a gift card to the Home Depot or Lowe’s. That screams, “I love you, but I really don’t know ya bud.”

C’mon, you can do better. In fact, you WILL do much better this year because we rounded up 15 gifts your father-in-law with absolutely adore. This gift guide will come in handy for birthdays, Father’s Day, Christmas, retirement parties, and more. We covered just about anything your FIL could want. (Okay, maybe that Home Depot gift card wouldn’t hurt either), but these gifts are much better.

What this list doesn’t include: coffee mugs, Bluetooth headphones, cufflinks, charging stations, BBQ tongs, and subscription boxes. What it does include: great gifts he’ll actually use. Also, it does not include tacky gifts that say you’re the best daughter-in-law. Girl, do better.
