Sometimes, dad needs to just get home and relax with a good book. If he's anything like my dad, then he's a HUGE fan of horror, sci-fi, fantasy, and psychological thrillers. That's where this subscription box comes in. For the dad who is a fan of anything dark, this company specializes in bringing customers exciting books from both new and well-established authors. Each month, dad will be guaranteed to receive two books (one new release, and one previously released title), a bookmark, and a custom art print. How cool is that?
For The Stylish Dad
An affordable yet stylish watch isn't easy to come by for the dad that has everything and wants to look particularly good. Thanks to this subscription box, though, it's definitely now possible.

Beyond the high-quality watch is also a $1 donation that goes to a select non-profit organization each month, so now dad can look good and do good.
For The Bartender Dad
This might just be the fanciest subscription box on the list, but it is well worth it. For the dad who loves cocktails and wants to learn more about them, this is the perfect way to have that five o'clock drink. The curated box doesn't include alcohol, but it goes include all the other ingredients, recipe cards, bar tools, and "how to" videos... enough for four cocktails at least. Dad can save all of those for himself or enjoy it with his buddies. Maybe if you're lucky he will even give you a taste.
