Ever since chunky New Balance and ASICS sneakers have become some of the most hyped releases, dads appear to be on a quest to prove their fashion prowess. And one fallout of this is that my wish list for gifts reads suspiciously like that of my old man's.
While I haven't gone as far as to ask for a new pair of garden sheers, recent trends have required that I'm jotting down waterproof hiking sneakers, practical cargo pants, fuzzy cardigans, and even jorts on the list of things I want to find on the other side of some wrapping paper.
One pro of this is that shopping for Pops is made a bit easier, as much of his style has gone full circle in the increasingly quick trend cycle. Below, we have gathered a good gift for dad, whether they be a hiking dad, an arty dad, or a bougie dad, and there are a few you might want to keep for yourself.
