Give him an experience

At nice as heck, we stress the importance of experience over material. We promise that your dad will appreciate spending time with you much more than any object. Here are a few ideas for experiences you guys can do together:


Go Karting

We’ve been getting pretty into competitive go karting. There's nothing like whipping around with no consequence when you crash. Take dad out to a little competitive go karting- you get to have a good time with this one too.



Plan a weekend for you and your pops this summer. Arrange an air bnb and a few activities along the way and give him the itinerary.


Take him to a game, show, movie, etc

Spend some time with him and go to a baseball game or the movies- tickets are always super cheap.


Go Hiking or Camping

Plan a camping trip for you and dad and gift him the itinerary. We guarantee he’ll appreciate the gesture and getting to spend some time with you.


If experiences aren't your thing, here are some gifts that hell love.
