It’s the most wonderful time of the year! With the holiday season right around the corner, it’s time to begin checking off all the people on your list. This year, we’ve rounded up a few stocking-sized gift ideas to help you put a big smile on your dad’s face!
Even though stocking stuffers are small, it’s a great way to show someone you love how much you care. They can be a nod to a funny inside joke, a unique habit or a hobby. And while their size can lead them to being overlooked, stocking stuffers can pack a surprising amount of sentimental value. Check out our favorites below:
Paracord Survival Bracelet
Anything “survival” themed is a hot item this Christmas, and this paracord survival bracelet is a great gift for any dad who loves outdoor activities like hiking, biking, hunting or rock climbing. It features heavy duty rope for the toughest situations, a compass, even an extra loud whistle. This bracelet comes in orange/grey or purple/grey color combinations and is super lightweight, so dad can take it on any adventure.
Beer Chill Sticks
There is nothing worse than a warm beer, and dads love gifts that help them keep their beers cold. Beer coozies are the usual go-to for stocking stuffers, but why not spoil dad with something even better? Chill Sticks are freezable inserts that replace a beer cap and keep any long neck beer bottle nice and cold while you are drinking it. The cap fits long necked bottles perfectly so that your beer will not go flat either.
