Finding a gift for dad can be tough. You want to get him something that won't just collect dust—something that's both useful  and  cool. But what if he's the kind of guy that already has pretty much everything? Not to worry; we're here to help you out. Here are 10 unique, useful—and, yes, cool—ways to brighten his holiday season.   1)    Fizzics Portable Draft Beer System   This at-home or on-the-go dispenser takes 64 ounces of any beer dad wants and sends it through its tap system so it tastes like a freshly pulled draft.   2)    eTape16 Digital Tape Measure   For the dad who's always in the middle of a home improvement project, this digital tape measure with memory storage and conversion capabilities will take some of the hassle out of it.   3)    ChefSteps Joule Sous Vide   The Joule cooks meat to perfection, so dad can make himself a steak worthy of a Michelin-starred restaurant.   4)    Garmin Speak Plus Dash Cam   Garmin's device will record his trips while Alexa gives him directions, checks the traffic, and controls the entertainment. Safe and savvy, for the dad who's always behind the wheel.   5)    Zojirushi Stainless Steel Mug   And to complement that brew, a leak-proof travel mug that will keep the coffee hot for hours.   6)    Pluto Pillow   Pluto lets him totally customize his pillow for ideal height, stiffness, and bounce. He'll sleep so well with it.   7)    SelectTech 560 Dumbbells   These smart dumbbells can be programmed to different weights from five to 60 pounds—perfect for days when he's tired  and  days when he wants to feel the burn.   8)    Shiitake Log Kit   Fresh, foraged mushrooms will be his to cook delicious meals with all year round.   9)    Braun Series 7 Shaver   Because he would never buy himself a fancy shaver like this.   10)    Allsaints Indo Shirt   This is a Hawaiian shirt to show up all those other dads and their less-cool Hawaiian shirts.
