    2. Some fancy dark chocolate almonds sure to be the sweetest gift he's ever received.

    12. A sampling of scented beard oils so you don't end up in the hairy situation of being stuck without a Father's Day gift.

    14. A professional-looking genealogy chart he can fill in instead of just telling you stories about about your Great-Great-Grandpa Steve for the hundredth time.
