What is Santa going to put into Dad’s stocking this year?
If you’ll be helping Santa out, you’ll need some fun dad gifts to fill his stocking to the top. We’ve compiled a list of the best stocking stuffers for Dad, whether Dad is a gamer, an outdoorsman or acquired his dad-bod from a cubicle. These gift ideas will bring a smile to his face!
Fun Stocking Stuffers for Dads

These fun beer coasters make an excellent addition to a stocking.
Always practical, a mix pack of zip ties fits nicely into a sock.

Barbecue sauce, or really any condiment, is an excellent treat.
Curl up for a movie later in the week with some of Dad’s popcorn.
