Dads are hard to shop for, period. They never seem to want anything and they don’t share lists like our moms often do. So, what do you buy the man who already has enough shaving kits and always seems to use the same leather wallet, no matter how many new ones you get him? Don’t worry! We got you covered! From personalized gifts to hot sauce to the comfiest sweat pants, we’ve rounded up the best Father’s Day gifts that are anything but basic.
