by Molly Joyce

Finding the perfect gift for your dad is notoriously difficult—in part because dads popularly claim to have everything already and want nothing. But it can also sometimes feel like there’s no gift that can compare to all they’ve done for us. 

So before you buy your dad another dud gift, here’s our recommendation—whether you’re shopping for the holidays, his birthday, or just because. Focus on something he’ll not only love, but that he’ll also use.

There are several great gift options that fit this description. Being an apparel company, we’ll focus on what we know best—apparel. In this instance, sweatshirts. 

As gifts, sweatshirts are perfect because they’re like hugs you can wear. They’re warm, cozy, and can tap into our fondest memories.
