Daughters and dads have a unique relationship. There is that moment in the hospital when a dad first holds his daughter and his eyes and heart go soft with love and a promise to be there for her always. The toddler years are filled with chubby hands clasping onto dad’s finger as she begins to take her first steps; playing in the park; airplane rides on the carpet; and curling up for afternoon naps.
You’re late for your son’s school conference, you forgot to pick up your daughter’s prescription at the pharmacy and you still haven’t figured out what’s for dinner tonight.

This list of gift suggestions is organized by dad types, because, after all, most dads have specific passions and attitudes that make them who they are.
