10 Great Gifts For The Father In Your Life

(that he will probably really like) (that won't break the bank either)

I don't know about you, but I find buying gifts for men to be a wee bit stressful. If the dad in your life is anything like the one in mine, he tends to buy the things he really wants — just last week he went out and bought himself a beer-making kit. No really. He did. 

Because he buys his own gadgets, toys, and gifts, it's hard for me to surprise him with something both unexpected and something he actually wants to keep. I have had some hits — I once got him a self-publishing gift to make his own cookbook. I have had some misses — there was that air hockey table that took him about 18 seconds to return to the store. I came up with a few ideas this year that I think he — and the man in your life — might really like. 

I mean, men like sports, grilling, dogs, drinking, television, superheroes, and shaving, right?
