Maybe you’ve noticed something. For mom’s gift, it seems, we go hard. But for Dad, sometimes… we tend to phone it in. Now’s not the time to explore the cultural reasons for that, but we’re here to say it just ain’t right. To help, below we put together a list of great gifts from Amazon (where you can enjoy expedited shipping in time for the holidays) for the special fathers in our lives, from outdoor tools to cozy winter loungewear. This season, give your dad his due!

These fold down nice and small too.”
