Father’s Day is around the corner and it brings up the eternal question: what should you get the man who has everything? When asked what they want, many dads respond, “nothing.” If that response has compelled you to purchase a convenient, yet low effort classic tie that ends up unused for years, you’re in luck!
After struggling for many years, we decided to create the ultimate gift guide for dads, including presents they will actually use and love.
Father’s Day gifts should be personal. Before diving in, make sure to take into account his interests, his lifestyle, and set a budget. As much as we would love to spoil the men who have given us so much, it is unlikely that they would be pleased if you ended up broke in the process. Thankfully, there are many options that are not only certain to bring a smile on his face but are also affordable. You can also make an extra personal gift at home with help from little hands. Without further ado, here are our tips for your next Father’s Day gift.
For the tech-savvy dad
Some dads need to ask their kids to reset the password for their wi-fi, but others are the ones you go to with the smallest technology-related issue because you know they’ll fix it being the tech wizards they are. If the dad you are shopping for in the latter category, there are plenty of options to choose from ranging across gaming, photography or smart gadgets, depending on his interests. However, if you want to go the DIY route without spending an arm and a leg, we recommend this stylish and quick geometric leather mouse pad.
For the dad who loves to grill
With summer upon us, many of our dads can regularly be found taking care of the barbecue. Cooking with fire may be related to our caveman roots, but it also results in delicious food. Encourage their interests by buying the perfect gift for the BBQ loving dad. However, if this is beyond your current budget, you can provide them with a great way to keep their tools organized instead with this personalized hanging grill tools display sign.
For the golfer dad
Golfing can be a lot of fun. If the dads in your life are avid golfers, you can get them the ideal present by merely ordering a gift certificate for their favorite golf course or, even better, organizing a trip to a course they have never played on. However, if you would rather go the handmade route instead, this DIY golf headcover will do the trick.
For the dad who appreciates a refreshing drink
What better way to relax after a long day than sitting down with a good stiff drink? We are sure that more than one dad would agree! No matter what their drink of choice is, finding the perfect Father’s Day gift for them is easy. From a bottle of their favorite liquor to an experience such as a tour and tasting at a local brewery, you can celebrate dad in style. However, for an extra personalized touch, you could opt for personalized DIY wood slice coasters.
For the dad who is a homebody
Some dads love to travel the world, others prefer to spend their days in the comfort of their home, and there is nothing wrong with that. Father’s Day is the perfect time to outfit their little piece of heaven with an elegant and modern piece of furniture they wouldn’t splurge on themselves or replace one that has seen better days. If you want to give your dad something you made yourself, these DIY vinyl record bowls are an excellent way to repurpose beloved but scratched vinyl that aren’t in playable condition anymore.
For the dad with style
Dapper dads may actually be looking forward to that yearly tie, or bow tie, or pocket square you give them every year. However, you could try branching out (with his guidance, of course) into a fabulous pair of shoes or even a new suit. If his wardrobe is getting out of control, you could instead build a DIY tie rack that will allow him to choose the perfect tie for his next outing at a single glance.
For the dad who enjoys the great outdoors
If the father figure in your life enjoys spending time in nature whenever he gets the chance, a new firepit will be a guaranteed hit. After all, there is no better way to spend a summer evening than relaxing next to a fire enjoying s’mores and good company. If dad is all set, he will definitely enjoy these homemade citronella paint can candles perfect for repelling insistent mosquitoes on the deck or when out camping.
