If he likes jewelry, then you gift him jewelry as well. Remember, not all men like to wear jewelry. You might want to ask mother-to-be about Dad's tastes. An ID bracelet, necklace, earring if he wears them, or a nice ring.
If Dad works out at YMCA or local gym, or just likes to jog he might appreciate a jogging suit, sports clothing, sport accessories, jogging shorts, ball cap, gloves for weight lifting, shirts for gym, or maybe some sweatbands.
Golf balls or a golf club or set of clubs. Does he like racketball or tennis? Some tennis balls, a tennis racket or racketball racket for worn out items he has now.
Does Dad like to go fishing? Pick him up some fishing lures, or a book on fishing. Maybe a gift for dad like a new reel, or rod, or rod and reel. A tackle box, some fishing accessories included, or just as is.
Hunting might be something Dad does. He would appreciate some gear related to hunting. A hunting jacket, orange cap, orange gloves, or some scents to attract animals. A magazine subscription about one of sports he likes.
A new watch to change his look or just to replace his old worn looking watch. Then add a billfold to make it complete.
Does he collect memorabilia? Get him memorabilia that he collects as perfect gift for dad. Or just get him started collecting by buying him something. For example: boxing memorabilia, sports cards, or sports memorabilia.
An autographed ball, autographed jersey, or an authentic jersey of his favorite team would be good gifts for dad. There are so many sports; dad probably has a favorite sport he likes best.
If Dad likes to read, maybe he would like a magazine subscription, book or book gift basket. Lastly, a good gift for dads would be to get him a gift certificate for local sports store, Wal-Mart, Kmart, Target, hardware store, or sports clothing store.
Again, ask his wife for help on this one. As hostess, give out some of these for a gift idea for dad in a list to guests you are inviting.
