It’s no secret that dads are the hardest loved ones to shop for when it comes to finding the perfect gift.

To help with your gifting woes, we asked our team for some of their tried-and-true dad gifts, and this is what they came up with:

1. Dad Grill Set
This grill set has dad written all over it . . . literally. Just in case you forget who the real grill master is in your house.


2. Barbeque Spice and Rub Set
Throw these spices and rubs in with the grilling utensils above, and he’ll be ready to make you and the whole family dinner. It’s a win-win!

3. Keurig Single Serve Coffee Maker
Have a husband who loves a good cup of coffee but won’t stop at the coffee shop? #TeamHerView Dads use their Keurigs religiously on those early mornings when they are up and about chasing kids before the crack of dawn.

4. What I Love About Dad Journal
This fill-in-the-blank book is short and sweet, and will capture any dad’s heart. What guy doesn’t want to be reminded of all of the things that make him great? Plus, kids say the darndest things and some of the prompt responses are sure to leave all of you laughing.


5. Engraved Hammer
This is the perfect gift for the handyman of the house. Who knows, having a personalized hammer might just make him more apt to work on some of those honey-dos. 


6. Beer Brewing Kit
For some dads, the only thing better than a nice cold beer at the end of a long day is the satisfaction of knowing that they brewed it themselves!

7. Suede Slippers
Give dad an excuse to kick up his feet with these cozy (but perfectly manly!) slippers. He deserves it!

8. Yeti Thermos
This thermos will keep his coffee hot or his water ice cold for hours no matter what he’s doing. 


9. Waterproof Bluetooth Speaker
Now dad can listen to the game on the go. This Bluetooth speaker can connect straight to his phone, and if it accidentally gets wet—no sweat! It’s waterproof, too.


10. Air Fryer
This is great for the health-conscious dad who still likes to indulge in fried foods. With this, he can enjoy the crunch without all of the grease.


11. Toilet Golf
If he gets tired of surfing his phone during those conveniently timed bathroom trips, he can practice his putting game instead. Bonus: the whole family will get a kick out of watching him open this particular gift.



12. Novelty Socks
Socks—because what’s a stocking without, well, a pair of stockings in it? These toe-huggers beat the boring ones he’s used to wearing.


13. Leather Laptop Bag
For the dad who always has his laptop in tow, this leather messenger bag is the perfect replacement for that beat up old bag he has hung onto for just a little too long.


14. Portable Cell Charger
Phone batteries just don’t seem to last—especially with kids around. This battery pack has enough ports to charge two devices at once, so he’ll always be ready for a quick recharge.

15 Heated Massage Chair Pad
Give him the gift of a massage that doesn’t require an appointment. He can use this to unwind a bit in his office chair, in the car, on the couch . . . just about anywhere!


16. Dad Joke Book
This handy little book will keep his dad joke game strong. We wouldn’t want him to lose the ability to make everyone in the family roll their eyes with his corny (yet endearing) humor, would we?

Hey Friend, Meet Me in the Mess

In: Friendship, Living
Friends smiling

If you come to our home, you’ll likely see a basket of folded or unfolded laundry waiting to be put away. You may even see a pile of dirty clothes hanging out by the washer. If you come to our home, you’ll likely find spitty bits in the sink from where little kids brushed their teeth in a hurry and forgot to rinse. Despite my best efforts, they always seem to find their way back. If you come to our home, there’s a 50-50 chance the beds will be made. If they were made, there’s a high chance they were...

God Calls Me Flawless

In: Faith, Living
Note hanging on door, color photo

When I look in the mirror, I don’t always like what I see. I tend to focus on every imperfection, every flaw. As I age, more wrinkles naturally appear. And I’ve never been high maintenance, so the gray hairs are becoming more frequent, too. Growing up a lot of negative words were spoken about me: my body, my weight, my hair, my build. Words I’ve somehow carried my whole life. The people who proclaimed them as my truth don’t even remember what they said, I’m sure. But that’s the power of negative words. Sticks and stones may break our bones,...

I’m Afraid of Going to the Dentist

In: Living

I never used to have a fear of the dentist. Growing up as a child who struggled with sensory issues and hated brushing my teeth, combined with struggles with food and not eating very healthy, I often had cavities and needed trips to the dentist to fix them. So trips to the dentist were just common for me, and I got used to it. By the time I was a teenager and needed braces, those trips only got more frequent. Did I enjoy the dentist? No, not really. But I never had any anxieties about it until five years ago. It started...

She is an Anonymom

In: Living, Motherhood
Mother standing at sink holding a baby on her hip

She stands alone in the church kitchen, frantically scrubbing pots and pans while the grieving huddle around the fellowship hall, and she slips out the back door before anyone comes in. She is an anonymom. She gets out of her car and picks up the trash thrown into the ditch alongside the country road. She is an anonymom. She sits on the park bench, watching her children play. In the meantime, she continually scans the whole playground, keeping track of everyone’s littles, because that is what moms do. She is an anonymom.

Your Husband Needs Friendship Too

In: Faith, Friendship, Marriage
3 men smiling outside

As the clock inches closer to 7:00 on a Monday evening, I pull out whatever dessert I had prepared that week and set it out on the kitchen counter. This particular week it’s a trifle, but other weeks it may be brownies, pound cake, or cookies of some kind. My eyes do one last sweep to make sure there isn’t a tripping hazard disguised as a dog toy on the floor and that the leftover dinner is put away. Then, my kids and I make ourselves scarce. Sometimes that involves library runs or gym visits, but it mostly looks like...

Memories are What Matter—Watch the Chevy Holiday Ad Making Us Cry

In: Living
Chevy holiday ad

I don’t know about you, but the older I get the more I find that this time of year feels fragile. I love the holidays, don’t get me wrong. But these days I recognize a comingling of joy and sadness that envelopes so many during this season. It’s a giant heap of emotion as we sort through the good, the bad, the happy, and the sad of the past year and try to make sense of where we are right here, right now, in this moment of time. So when I saw Chevrolet’s new seasonal ad last night, I was...

This Is Why Moms Ask for Experience Gifts

In: Faith, Living, Motherhood

When a mama asks for experience gifts for her kids for Christmas, please don’t take it as she’s ungrateful or a Scrooge. She appreciates the love her children get, she really does. But she’s tired. She’s tired of the endless number of toys that sit in the bottom of a toy bin and never see the light of day. She’s tired of tripping over the hundreds of LEGOs and reminding her son to pick them up so the baby doesn’t find them and choke. She’s tired of having four Elsa dolls (we have baby Elsa, Barbie Elsa, a mini Elsa,...

6 Things You Can Do Now to Help Kids Remember Their Grandparents

Grandfather dances with granddaughter in kitchen

A month ago, my mom unexpectedly passed away. She was a vibrant 62-year-old grandma to my 4-year-old son who regularly exercised and ate healthy. Sure, she had some health scares—breast cancer and two previous brain aneurysms that had been operated on successfully—but we never expected her to never come home after her second surgery on a brain aneurysm. It has been devastating, to say the least, and as I comb through pictures and videos, I have gathered some tips for other parents of young kids to do right now in case the unexpected happens, and you’re left scrambling to never...

When You Need a Friend, Be a Friend

In: Friendship, Living
Two friends having coffee

We have all seen them—the posts about the door always open, the coffee always on, telling us someone is always there when we need support. I have lived with depression my entire life. From being a nervous child with a couple of ticks to a middle-aged woman with recurrent major depressive and generalized Anxiety disorder diagnoses. Antidepressants, therapy, writing, and friends are my treatments. The first three are easy, my doctor prescribes antidepressants, I make appointments with a therapist, and I write when I feel the need. RELATED: Happy People Can Be Depressed, Too The fourth is hard. As I...

When You Just Don’t Feel Like Christmas

In: Faith, Living
Woman sad looking out a winter window

It’s hard to admit, but some years I have to force myself to decorate for Christmas. Some years the lights look a little dimmer. The garlands feel a bit heavier. And the circumstances of life just aren’t wrapped in a big red bow like I so wish they were. Then comparison creeps in like a fake Facebook friend and I just feel like hiding under the covers and skipping it all. Because I know there’s no way to measure up to the perfect life “out there.” And it all just feels heavier than it used to. Though I feel alone,...
