Christmas Gift Guide for Dad’s

If you’re looking for the standard socks (unless they’re fabulously funky) or soap-on-a-rope-type suggestions, you’re in the wrong place. I’ve carefully selected some phenomenal products that will have the Dad in your life beaming! If you didn’t hit the Black Friday sales and make your way through your list, best you get shopping! I’ve banned my husband from looking at this guide (move away from the Guide, Dyl) because there’s too much here that he’s getting under the tree! There’s a mixture of stocking filler type gifts, and bigger ticket items for more of a splurge.
