1. For the Single Dad
Dads that are back on the dating scene can feel overwhelmed sometimes, and when you’re a single parent taking care of your kids, that’s even more true. Thankfully, there are loads of sites such as Dream Singles where you can meet potential partners nowadays, all from the comfort of your home and without having to hire a babysitter for a blind date set up by friends. Surprise him with a membership and watch his eyes light up.
2. For the History Buff Dad
Tucked inside each envelope, he’ll find copies of history’s most fascinating documents, like when Albert Einstein wrote to FDR about his new, life-changing invention. Each month, he’ll get a new envelope a.k.a. another excuse to do a historical deep-dive.
3. For the Fashionable Dad
Each month, a funky pair of crew or no-show socks will arrive at his door. So, be prepared for your dad to comment on his “fancy feet” from now until … well, forever.
4. For the Audiophile Dad
The shower will become his stage once he suctions this waterproof speaker to the wall. It easily connects to any Bluetooth device, so he can jam out to his favorite karaoke songs while getting clean.
