Shopping Christmas gifts online or not for Dad can be a down right frustrating experience at times because they are so hard to shop for when you want to find just the right gift. We know how difficult this can be when you are given little to go on and can’t seem to think of an immediate good idea. However, to make sure you don’t’ spend too much wasted energy, we have put together a list of popular gift ideas such as Christmas hampers that have done well in the past and will do well in 2010.
Our first gift category is personalized gifts. These are a big hit because they tie in directly with the person, in this case Dad. Popular choices include personalized golf balls, monogrammed leather goods, and photo gifts. All these will again be a hit in 2010 because of the “personalization” factor which never goes out of style.
Another popular choice with the home improvement and do it yourself Dads will be tools. Popular gift choices include tool box sets and power tools. Depending on what your father already has, this can be a challenge finding just the right tool. However, a good rule of thumb is to stick with tools that are very popular. In this way, even if you get him another drill, it may turn out that your gift is a much better one that he would prefer to what he already has.
These will appeal to Dads who are a little more techy and like things that are in their opinion fun. These can be things like GPS devices, digital cameras, or wireless devices like PDAs or ipods. Popular versions in 2009 will include the Garmin nuvi 275T, Casio SX20IS, Apple® ipod touch 32GB, and more.
Home Entertainment Options
Home entertainment options are also popular Christmas gifts for Dad. Although not everyone can afford to give a new HDTV, they can afford to give other home entertainment options like improved speakers, disc players, control centers, etc. Popular ones in 2009 include the Panasonic® VSX-819H, the LG BD390, and if you are looking for HDTVs at bargain prices the Panasonic TC-P42G10 and the LG 50PS80. These provide tremendous quality at a good price.
