Raise your hand if you’ve ever heard your dad say “I don’t want anything. Just get me underwear.” around the holidays and/or Father’s Day? If not, consider yourself lucky that your old man is open to the idea of receiving a gift. Extra kudos to him if he actually shares what he might want!

For me, I have never really had much luck in the gift-giving department with my Pa but as I have gotten older, I have been able to nitpick him in my own way where I am getting more comfortable with what I think I could add into his daily life to make it more well-rounded. It hasn’t always been easy and a lot of what I am driven to get him falls into the trickiest category: apparel. In recent years, I’ve expanded to include accessories.

The only thing my dad has ever actually asked for was a watch. The man likes watches. There have been a handful of times where he’s mentioned wanting a new watch and I have done my best to try and toss a timepiece in the mix as often as I can to keep things fresh for him. I did give him a watch this past Christmas but I thought another might be of interest so I’ve listed out four relatively affordable options that can work in four different scenarios for just about any aging OG.

This Casio G-Shock ($99) has a retro square design and remind me a bit of a toolbox. All of my life, I’ve always been slightly envious of my dad’s abilities as a handyman. Put a screwdriver in my hand and I immediately desire a Xanax to calm me down.
