Most waxed aprons are made from canvas, with a thick top layer of paraffin (to repel water), but that makes them heavy and stiff. The Tilit Contra Chef Apron, on the other hand, is made from a thinner cotton fabric that contains a water-repelling solution. This little detail makes the Tilit apron lighter and more comfortable than typical waxed canvas aprons. We think the clean lines, narrow bib, and welted pockets give the Tilit Contra a neat and polished look, and Dad will agree. And this apron comes in a slew of both perennial and seasonal color options.
While Yeti makes our all-time favorite cooler, you might not want to shell out nearly $1,000 (!!) for his gift. Fortunately, you can get him the Yeti he loves at a more affordable price point (i.e. less than $25) with the popular Rambler mug. Made of double vacuum-insulated stainless steel, it has nearly 12,000 reviews on Amazon for keeping coffee steaming hot (or their water ice cold) for hours.
There are backpacks, and then there are backpacks. This one from Milwaukee Boot Co. takes things to that next level, striking just the right note of rugged style with hand-stitching and leather accents. There’s plenty of room for everything in the canvas North Point for the guy on the go, as well as a cinch-strap side pocket for water. If you’re looking for something to tote a computer, try these 12 best laptop backpacks at every price point.

Our top-rated carry-on luggage, the Samsonite Flexis 21" Spinner features tough, nimble wheels that should last for years of hard use. It offers 2,520 cubic inches of packing space. The inside of the suitcase boasts a large open area with elastic retention straps for securing your clothes or packing cubes into place, as well as mesh stash pockets for organizing smaller items. On the inside of the bag’s lid, you’ll find a zippered, mesh compartment that’s perfect for jamming socks or underwear in. We were particularly impressed with the self-healing YKK Strong Grip Zip. If one of the bag’s zippers gets messed up (but doesn’t break), zipping and unzipping it should make it as good as new.
Another item from the Stanley brand that makes the ‘nice’ list this Christmas is the Stanley Adventure Flask. Responsible for many shared family memories and adventures of friends, the all-steel vacuum bottle invented by William Stanley in 1913 is a prized possession that is often passed on from generation to generation, for camping trips and hikes. All Stanley vacuum bottles are easy to clean and are made to last a lifetime by using rustproof, food-grade stainless steel covered with a hammertone powder coat that can stand the test of time. You can enjoy your swig of beer without fear of rust being a part of the mixture. This flask can fit into anything and any occasion. Carry this flask it in your pocket while you have fun at a music festival or keep it in your hiking bag as you get closer to your campsite.
