Gifts for Every Type of Dad from Best Buy + Giveaway!

Father’s Day is the best time of year to take a moment to appreciate and celebrate Dad for all he is and all he’s done for us to help us get where and be who we are.

While Dad’s main job throughout his kids’ lives is to lead, guide, and protect, there’s no denying that each Dad has his own unique “type.” Some Dads are handymen, some are sports-fanatics, some are gamers, BBQ-pros, bookworms, you name it.
