Is it just me, or are dads the most difficult people to shop for?
Most of us know all too well Mom is queen at dropping hints about what she likes. When Mother's Day rolls around, we know the ultimate gift to *surprise* her with.
But Dad, not so much.
Father's Day is literally right around the corner, and while I hope you're prepared, let's assume you're not.
It seems like dads never really want anything specific, so finding the perfect gift can be next to impossible.
The solution? Focus on one hobby or passion he loves, and build a gift for your dad around it. It may not be something he'd think of asking for, but you can bet he'll love it even more for that.
If Dad likes breweries and beer, you're in the right place. Here are 14 best Father's Day presents for any dad who has a love for the brew.
