DAD NEEDS A DANG HAIRCUT

Is your dad’s tired look making you crazy? It’s 2018, pop, time to freshen up! Doesn’t need to be dreads, braids, or even a precision shaved design (though by all means, go for it!), maybe just an OG fade and some good ole pampering will get dad to turn in his clippers.

DAD’S HELL ON WHEELS

If you’re lucky enough to have a father who is a biker, you know they love gear. Dad will LOVE a new helmet that is as sweet-looking as it is super-protective. An open face with option for a visor or shield is the best of both worlds, and the super soft lining will make long rides comfy.

DAD TOLD YOU VINYL WOULD MAKE A COMEBACK

Remember when Dad tried to explain the beauty of vinyl and you just put your earbuds in and walked away with your music? Well, he’s right. Vinyl is still here, and still a great way to listen. Find mint condition epic records (some even still wrapped!) so Dad can rock out on the deck.
