Dads are the best, so why is it that they’re always impossible to shop for? Maybe it’s because they already know what they like, and they’re sticking with it. So, on that note, we pulled together nine of the most classic, timeless gifts that any dad of any age would love…

Original Stan Smith Sneakers

Original Stan Smith Sneakers, $75, for playing frisbee all summer.

Timex watch

A knock-around watch, $60, to wear on weekends.

Ray-Ban aviator sunglasses

Ray-Ban aviators, $150, because all guys somehow look amazing in them.

Back to the Future Trilogy

Back to the Future, $44, because it’s only one of the best trilogies ever. (“Roads? Where we’re going we don’t need roads.”)

French press

A break-resistant French press, $30, so he can make a cup even while camping.

Marled Joggers

Relaxed joggers, $40, to up his change-into-sweatpants-every-night-after-work game.

The best wireless speaker

Go in with your siblings and get an amazing-sounding Bluetooth speaker, $230, for playing tunes at home or in the backyard.

Aerating Pourer

Aerating Pourer, $20, to perform the ultimate cool-dad trick: It aerates wine and boosts flavor (like a decanter) immediately as it’s poured.

Drawstring duffle

Barbour duffle, $199, with a drawstring rope, so he can pack up all his things and come visit you already!

A handy tip: Macy’s offers e-gifts, which make giving presents a thousand times easier. You choose the gift you want to give and click the e-gift icon to fill in the name and email of the gift recipient. The gift recipient then receives an email telling them about your gift and they get a chance to adjust size, color or even (secretly) exchange it before it ships to them. It’s also great for last-minute gifts (you can even order ON Father’s Day), since the email gets sent to them right away.

Thoughts? What will you be getting your dad this year?

P.S. Dads are the original hipsters.
