We don’t know about you, but it seems like Father’s Day is the one holiday that creeps up on us every year. Maybe it’s because it’s near the official start of summer, maybe it’s because dads usually keep things low-key, who knows? Either way, the day is no less important to celebrate! If you’ve struggled with figuring out Father’s Day gifts for the dads in your life, this list has you covered. No matter what kind of dad you’re lucky to have in your life — new dads, dog dads, DIY dads, etc. — there’s a little something here for everyone. Happy gifting!
For new dads…
Custom “First Father’s Day” Frame
First of all, congrats to the new dad in your life! Being a new father is exciting, if not nerve-wracking — so this holiday is the perfect time to gift him something special to commemorate his first Father’s Day. This customized frame is the perfect addition to dad’s office, nightstand or even garage — as new dads continue to adjust to a new life of fatherhood, this can serve as a simple, sweet reminder of how it all began.
Bean Box Coffee Sampler
Moms aren’t the only ones who run on coffee! But typically, dads don’t “treat” themselves too often when it comes to coffee — just simple, black coffee does the trick. Until now, at least. Bean Box is a coffee subscription box that offers a perfect balance of simplicity with a hint of luxe-tasting, robust coffee flavors! With gourmet samples from all around the world, this is the ultimate Father’s Day gift for coffee lovers because it’s practically a coffee tour right inside dad’s kitchen. Each coffee bag comes with brewing tips and tricks, local information about the coffee beans, and a tracker to rank all the new favorite brews he’s sure to discover!
For outdoor dads…
Bike sales skyrocketed during quarantine, and it’s no surprise why! Cycling is a simple way to stay active while still maintaining a safe distance from others. But even though the country is steadily opening back up again, many people are keeping with the pandemic habits and hobbies they picked up. If cycling is still on your dad’s activity list, the GT Men’s Aggressor Pro Mountain Bike is the perfect buy. Whether it’s outdoor trails, mountainside rides, or even cruising around the city, this bike is built for durability, able to handle the toughest of conditions.
Chances are, dad already drinks his morning coffee from a YETI cup,…so why not elevate his YETI status with this versatile gift? YETI is known for quality, and this cooler is no exception; it’s leakproof, rugged, and easy to tote around for an all-day adventure. If he’s not the outdoorsman type, it’s also a convenient option to use for backyard grill parties or sessions around the fire pit because it’s wide-mouth zippered lid means easy access when you need it. Beach vacation? Camping weekend? Backyard beers? No matter the occasion, you can’t go wrong with adding this YETI cooler to your dad’s gift list!
For dog dads…
Detachable Dog Carrier for Bike
When dad is testing out his new mountain bike, he’s going to want to bring his four-legged friend along for the ride! A detachable dog carrier is just what he needs to make outdoor adventures…well…more adventurous! Coming in all shapes and sizes to fit his dog’s needs, try out this sweet new ride from PetSafe, which offers seating with the “windows down” or up, giving the freedom to let the head (and tongue) hang loose and enjoy the view. For smaller dogs, you can even pick up a basket-sized carrier for the front of dad’s bike — giving them the front row seat to all of dad’s adventures.
“Dog Dad” Baseball Cap
There is no greater bond between a dog and a dad — especially for dog dads who “didn’t want” the dog in the first place! Dog dads keep their pooch’s tails wagging and spirits lifted with their special bond, so what better way to tell the world than a wearable declaration of love? This baseball cap will put his Fido fatherhood on full display while also providing the benefits we all know and love from wearing one; shade over the eyes and hiding unruly hair. Plus, it’s a budget-friendly option if buying a mountain bike or YETI cooler is a bit out of your price range. Win-win!
For “empty nester” dads…
Is it just us, or does does every “empty-nester” dad seem to be into golf? If that sounds like the dad in your life, this Wilson Profile SGI complete golf set will be the perfect Father’s Day gift! With multiple sizing options to fit every dad’s style, it also comes complete with a carry bag and covers for each of the club heads. Dad will be the envy among his buddies on the green with this snazzy new set!
Whiskey Gift Box
Equal parts rugged and sophisticated, whiskey is often the drink of choice for men — dad’s included! If you were already thinking of gifting his favorite spirit, why not take it a step further with a whiskey glass set? This Mixology & Craft set would pair beautifully with dad’s favorite brand of whiskey! With glasses, stones, tongs, coasters and whiskey cards with fun recipes to test out, this is one Father’s Day gift he’s sure to cherish.
For grill master dads…
Every grill master needs a trusty pair of tools — and this set from Pottery Barn is the one to beat! Stainless steel tools like a spatula and tongs come prepared in a custom-made pinewood storage box. A sleek, organized design will save dad time when grilling and make storing afterward a breeze, all while looking sharp!
We know there are plenty of backyard party-loving dads out there! Backyard parties = backyard games, and what better way to test dad’s competitive spirit than a round of cornhole? A custom-designed cornhole set is the Father’s Day gift that will keep on giving — it’ll keep everyone entertained for hours, but is also the quintessential game for football tailgates, beach vacations, and so much more. Whether he’s a sports fanatic, a superhero nerd, or just likes fun toys, showcase his interests with a custom design that he’ll love for years to come.
For DIY dads…
Durable Tool Bag
Dads love fixing and building things with some good ol’ fashioned elbow grease. For the handyman dad in your life, this polyester Carhartt tool tote will be your dad’s trusted companion for any project he sets his mind to. With 17 pockets and water repellent fabric, dad will rest knowing this tool bag is strong enough to endure the toughest of DIY tasks for years to come!
We hope this gift guide gave some inspiration to all you doting children out there! And to all the Dads we’re privileged to know and love, Happy Father’s Day!
