My Dad is the hardest person to shop for. His birthday is one month after Christmas and both are extremely hard to shop for. As long as he has his laptop and family around, there's really nothing he asks for. I recently moved into our first house and have been getting into DIY projects to spruce up the place and decided to make him something for his birthday. A couple of 2 x 4s and hours later, I made him a personalized step stool for his house and he loved it! He showed it off to all of his work friends and now I'm known as his builder daughter.
