Hanukkah Gift Guide 2012: For Dads

Dads are notoriously the most difficult people to shop for. If you’re tired of gifting a different tie for the 15th year in a row, consider some of these fun ideas, all available at ModernTribe.

If dad is a fan of the Wild West (or wine), pair up a nice bottle of wine with this fantastic Lasso Wine Holder ($32). The holder seems to defy gravity and is the perfect conversation starter for any room.

If dad isn’t quite a cowboy but follows the Cowboys fanatically, this Football Kippah ($12) is perfect for his keppe.

For the dad that is a real mensch, let him know you appreciate him with this Amalgamated Menschen International T-Shirt ($27.95). It looks just serious enough for dad to get some well-earned respect.

This Chalk Board Frame ($24.95) is the perfect desktop accessory for dad’s office. Let the kids decorate it and redecorate it every time they visit.

If dad is a high roller, he’ll definitely get a kick out of these High Roller Coins ($14.00), poker chips made out of minty dark chocolate. They’ll make the stakes in any dreidel game much higher. 

If dad is an eco-friendly bike rider who loves to recycle, and he is in the market for a new menorah, consider this innovative Recycled Bicycle Chain Menorah ($27). Made of used bike chains, this menorah is both whimsical and rustic.

If you’ve got a couch potato on your hands, let him enjoy his shows in style with this Retro TV Pillow ($28). It’s old-fashioned look will remind him of the good old days before his kids made him watch Yo Gabba Gabba!

Finally, if you absolutely must uphold the tie-giving tradition, at least consider making sure the accessory is festive by giving dad a Menorah Necktie ($39) this year.
