What do you get for the dad who has a joke for everything? If you said “New material,” have we got a Father’s Day Gift Guide for you.
All kidding aside, your dad — and really all parents and guardians — deserves a special Father’s Day. And since sleep is always on our minds, those dad jokes might even come in handy at night, as laughter helps to decrease stress levels and create positive vibes before bed.
We found 31 gift ideas to help tickle your dad’s fancy, at bedtime or anytime. They include an assist from a famous father, clothing to aid with navigating our collective lack of work-life separation, and a bouquet he can eat.
