Dads are probably the toughest people on the planet to get gifts for because whenever we ask them what they want, chances are that they’ll say something like, “I already have everything that I need.” While this might be true since some dads do go out and get what they want when they need it, it’s more likely that they just don’t want us spending our hard-earned cash on them. Sure, this is very selfless and kind of them, but their lack of guidance also makes it that much more difficult for us to get them the perfect Father’s Day gift.
So, this year we decided to share some feel good gift ideas that you can get your dad or the father figure in your life to let them know just how much you love and appreciate them. Since Father’s Day will be celebrated on Sunday, June 20th this year, you still have some time to get your dad a gift that he’ll be sure to cherish. So, without further ado, here are some unique Father’s Day gifts that you can get your dad, grandpa, husband, or any of the special guys in your life this Father’s Day.
A Coffee Gift Basket
For the dads who always start each morning with a cup of coffee in their hand, you can make them a coffee gift basket with items that you know they’ll be sure to put to good use. Some things you can include in the coffee gift basket are a personalized mug with photos of their children or grandchildren on it (or you can even go with a traditional “#1 Dad” or “#1 Grandpa” mug), a coffee maker (if they need a new one), a coffee grinder, and a weighing scale. You can also sign your coffee loving dad up with a coffee subscription. This gift is sure to be a hit, especially for any new dads who aren’t getting much sleep of late.
Items For The Great Outdoors
If you have an outdoorsy dad who loves to go fishing, hiking, and camping, we’re assuming that he probably already has all the gear that he needs. That said, some excellent gift ideas that will be sure to enhance his overall outdoors experience are a comfortable camp chair, a new warm flannel shirt, or a smartwatch made for adventure athletes. You can also get him a personalized hiking stick, a sun hat, a monthly fly-fishing subscription, or an engraved pocket compass. And if you like the outdoors yourself, maybe take your old man for a Father’s Day hike. Just make sure not to call him ‘old man’ when you’re with him.
New Gadgets That Will Blow Your Dad’s Mind
For the dads out there who are all about the latest and greatest technological gadgets, you can get them portable speakers so they can listen to their favorite music wherever they go, noise-cancelling headphones so that they can tune everyone out and be in their own world for a little while, or new tracking discs, which will help them find all the things that they’re always so busy looking for around the house. Some other tech items that your dad might appreciate and put to good use are a wireless charger stand, a digital picture frame, or an instant camera so they can get instant gratification with the photos in the moment, and then look back and be nostalgic about them later. We all know that’s a total dad move.
Personalized Gifts Just For Dad
The great thing about a personalized gift is that the person you’re giving it to knows that it’s unique and special just for them. Personalized Father’s Day gifts can range from personalized ‘Super Dad’ books to personalized bracelets, which can be engraved with your dad’s initials, or the names of his children.
Treat Dad To A Sporting Event Or A Concert
Dads love spending quality time with their kids, especially if it’s while doing an activity that they enjoy. So, if you have brothers and sisters, find a date on the calendar that you’re all available and then take dad to see his favorite team play, or to listen to his favorite band live in concert. You can all chip in to pay for your dad’s ticket, and buy your own. And as an added bonus, you and your siblings won’t just be getting something for your dad, you’ll also be treating yourselves to a gift, as well. After all, what’s better than a fun-filled family outing? Not much.
