The upside: He’s likely always worked from home, so he’s a hands-on dad. On the other hand, he treats his work like another child. His proclivity for being the most up-to-date in tech always helped him (and you) in the “cool” department, and his style has probably only seen minor updates since his 20s. Anything plugged in and simple in style is the best way to crack this nut.

Bless his heart: This dad’s off-duty look is always ready to tee off. He’s a man of simple pleasures: golf, light beer, his accounting job, to name them all. He might not “get down” with pop culture, but he’s most likely to teach you the valuable lessons of life, like doing your taxes on time. Don’t overthink the gift; stick with what he knows—just make it the best version.

This is embarrassing: He’s the hot dad, and you know it. The man ages like a fine wine and gets away with dressing far younger than his salt-and-pepper hair would indicate (think Jeff Goldblum), begging the question: What sort of youth potion did he take, and is it genetic? Just think of what your dumb-but-stylish ex would wear, but on a nicer budget.

Before you groan, this finance bro has a great heart: He’s always been about the finer things in life, and that’s panned out really well for you. Sure, he’s practically married to his work and charting the market, but that intense passion also translated to being a deep, loving parental figure. Honestly, if it’s made of rich lacquered mahogany, the finest wool, or stainless steel, your stock is about to skyrocket.

This has been a fun ride for you, especially the last few years. Camping out for the next sneaker drop is family bonding time. Sure, he doesn’t fit the “conventional” dad mold, but when the grails are this good, who cares? He’s always going to care about your weird hobbies and obscure music library because his are even crazier. Make sure you’re up on the latest throwback piece that’s trending—that’s his happy place.
