Father's Day Gift Ideas

When it comes to store-bought gifts, just because you don’t make a gift yourself, doesn’t mean the present is any less thoughtful.

Father’s Day is upon us once again. Every year, while we spend this day appreciating and showing gratitude to the important men in our lives, we’re faced with a challenging question. What should you get them for a Father’s Day gift? Whether you find shopping for gifts difficult or easy, we’ve curated some ideas that will hopefully spark your imagination. 

Especially if you have children, try making a homemade gift. The younger ones can create their finger-painting masterpiece to present to their dad or grandparents. The painting process might get messy, but it’s a gift that he is sure to cherish forever. Another homemade gift that’s full of nostalgia is a photo re-creation. If there are older children in your family, take an old photograph from when the kids were younger and try to recreate it. You can find inspiration online from other families that have done this. Place the old photo next to the new image in a frame, and it’s the perfect gift! 

When it comes to store-bought gifts, just because you don’t make a gift yourself, doesn’t mean the present is any less thoughtful. 

Try to think of what your father enjoys doing in his free time. Maybe his favorite thing to do is sit and watch the game; he’ll love some merchandise from his favorite team. Perhaps he has a green thumb and loves to garden. Try getting him some gardening tools or an indoor garden so he can grow his herbs and vegetables all year round. Does he enjoy getting outside and being active? A new pair of running shoes or hiking boots could be the perfect gift. Or maybe your father is the ultimate handyman; around Father’s Day, there are all kinds of specials on tool kits. 

It can also be helpful to think of what your dad likes to eat or cook. Is your father the master of the grill? A personalized set of grill tools might be the perfect gift. Does your father love spicy foods? Put together an array of unique hot sauces for him to try. Or maybe your dad has a sweet tooth, support your local bakery and purchase a selection of baked goods for him to try. Feeling brave? Try to make some baked goods yourself! Nothing says I love you quite like a freshly baked pie. 

It may also help to think of what your dad needs. If he suffers from back pain, try getting him a pillow that’s designed for lumbar support. If he shaves or has a beard, introduce him to beard oil. Now that summer is just around the corner, give the gift of sun protection and give your father a moisturizer and sunscreen combo to keep him safe from the beating sun.   

No matter what you decide to give your dad this Father’s Day, any thoughtful gift comes from the heart will be perfect and appreciated. If receiving gifts isn’t your father’s favorite thing, give the gift of time. We all know time flies by; spending quality time with your dad this Father’s Day may be the best gift of all.
