Fathers are some of the trickiest people to shop for, no matter how low-key they seem to be. Whether yours constantly insists they “don’t need anything,” or the only hint they’ve dropped is that they want to spend more time with the family (cue the aww), finding something useful that they’ll enjoy for seasons to come can be a challenge. So, how do we wrap up our thanks and spoil the father figures in our lives with just one gift? Go for something that will delight not just Dad, but the whole fam, too. (How’s that for a win-win?).
Thankfully, Macy’s has a spot-on selection of gifts dads will love in group settings, no matter what they’re currently a connoisseur of (like that one specific hobby they picked up in their downtime over the past year at home). That’s right, whether Dad is down for a picnic, a ’90s movie marathon, or even a game of croquet in the backyard to celebrate, your gift-giving is sure to be golden with these fun picks. Scroll on to see our favorites from the top gifting authority — and why these picks are pure fun for the whole crew.
