Still thinking about what to get Dad for the holidays? Let GreatDad.com guide you with our top recommendations of gift suggestions for dads. And, since we’re dads ourselves, we went beyond the usual suspects of slippers, ties, sports and other predictable presents to offer ideas that will not only surprise him but will let him know that you truly appreciate all he does.

The Cosmic Catch (Hasbro) – $24.93 Is on our holiday list just because it takes the basic ball concept just one step further. The ball itself announces who to throw to, among a possible six wristband-wearing players. Kids can work together to beat old records or play to win by eliminating competitors. Everyone gets a turn, even dad on the couch. Too bad there’s not a way to put dad’s color in at lower ratios. $25 in different colors!

Spy laser chase – $19.95 Call this “laser tag” and take the shooting element out of it and it’s a fun game.  This is laser tag based on a wristheld laser and receiver.  Sound effects tell you when you’ve fired and when you’ve been hit.

Brio Labryinth with extra boards – $35.19  The Brio Labryinth is a decidedly low-tech game from the 60s that still tests coordination and nerves.  This may be a game that dads can win while still being equally intriguing for kids.  Made of wood, it’s a classic that will last a long time.

Legends of Magic Magic Set – $49.95 Everything’s here for dad to learn and perform all the classic magic tricks with a young magician.  This may be just the right thing for them to learn together.  Imagine the magic duo they will make.

Lionel New York Central Flyer Train Set – $299.95 Here’s a great starter O-gauge train set that’s perfect for a dad to set up to play with a young engineer.  It’s the gift that’s for the child, but really for the child inside the dad.
