Hi Nicole. That sounds like a great idea for a gift. Here's what you want to do-

First, figure out how much experience your dad has with boxing and how big a fella he is. If he is 6' and has been boxing for years, you'll want to consider a 100lb heavy bag. If he is smaller and will only use the bag recreationally, you can go a bit lighter like 60-70 lbs.

This bag right here is a great option if your trying to be cost effective: bx-hv-380. The good thing about this and most other bags is that they come with the chains needed to hang it from a hook or hanger. If you'd like to spend a few more dollars, consider this impressive bag: bx-hv-368. It's very high quality leather, durable, and pleasant to work with.

One thing these bags and most other bags don't address is the actual hook used to hang the bag up with. For that you'll need something like this: bx-ac-36, or if you don't want to drill into your wooden beams, something like this: bx-hv-369.

As to the second part of your question, handwraps and bag gloves are notably different. Handwraps are a long cloth chord that you use on your hands directly to protect the knuckles and secure the wrist. Generally handwraps are used alone for speed bag training, but with heavy bags it is recommended that you get real bag gloves in addition. The gloves provide the foam or gel protection needed to keep training over long periods of time safely. Here is an example of handwraps: bx-ac-312, and here are some nice bag gloves: bx-gl-11.
