Whether he’s the type of dad who owns everything or is picky about what he likes, finding a Father’s Day gift can be challenging. You want to get him something memorable and exciting, but also practical. While the best gift for the dad in your life depends on his interests and lifestyle, the following clever ideas can help you give inspiration. Or, maybe you will find the perfect gift for dad on this list.
10 Bluetooth Projector
If dad is a family lover, then a Bluetooth projector can level up family movie nights. He’ll love the old-school feel of watching a movie projected on the wall. It’ll make watching a flick cozier and more exciting. Plus, it’s a gift that can be enjoyed together as a whole family or one-on-one as a couple.
9 Cold Brew Set
Having kids usually translates to a strong dependence on coffee for parents. If the dad in your life is a coffee aficionado, give him a new way to get his fix. Cold brew is the new trend amongst coffee drinkers, and now there are plenty of at-home kits on the market. It may take him a while to get the hang of brewing, but he’ll likely love the challenge.
8 Bartesian Cocktail Machine
On a similar note, if he’s a lover of good drinks, then a Bartesian may be the way to go. This innovative device makes cocktails on-demand – everything from a blended margarita to a cosmopolitan. You simply add the alcohol and insert a cocktail capsule (in a very Nespresso fashion). Dads will love this because it’s like having a personal bartender on hand.
7 Music Lesson
Gifting him the opportunity to learn a new skill is priceless and will allow dad to focus a bit of time on himself. It doesn’t have to be music. You can surprise him with lessons or a course about something he’s expressed interest in pursuing or has been passionate about in the past. He’ll love the nudge and the fact that you’re supporting his interests.
6 Personalized Socks
If you’re looking for a simple but sweet gift, consider a personalized clothing item. Socks are a great choice since he can wear them regularly without having this gag gift on full blast. You can put anyone’s face on their socks – dad, his partner, or even the kids. Do a quick Google search to find retailers that will customize socks or other types of apparel.
5 Neck Massagers
This may seem random, but a neck massager can be a thoughtful gift for dads, especially those who work labor-intensive jobs and are sore at the end of the day. You can even add some smaller self-care items (like a beard mask or eye patches) to give him an excuse to have some me-time. Dads certainly don’t engage in enough spa-like self-care.
It may seem like a no-brainer to take dad out for Father’s Day, which is why you need to level it up. Surprise him with a tasting menu – this is a specific feature offered in select restaurants where they offer sampling portions of various dishes served. This is a great idea if he’s a lover of food and can never decide what to order on the menu.
3 Beer Dispenser
If dad is a fan of beer, then getting him a dispenser is sure to be a hit. It promises to produce better-tasting beer, plus it makes the experience of having a pint more exciting. Fizzics explains it uses patent micro-foam technology to improve the carbonation of beer to produce a smoother taste and aroma. He’ll love explaining the science behind this device to everyone he uses it to serve beer to.
2 Customized Scrapbook
Not every amazing gift is store-bought. If you want a really unique Father’s Day present, then consider making it yourself. That way, it’ll be one-of-a-kind. One sweet DIY gift is a customized scrapbook. You can take this in multiple directions. You could make a scrapbook of the kids throughout the years, one featuring your favorite vacations, or your most special moments as a couple.
1 Commission A Portrait
Another personalized gift idea is to commission a portrait. You can easily find an artist on sites like Etsy who specialize in portraits (look through their work to make sure you like their style). If you give them a picture of dad, they’ll be able to recreate it in their style. He’ll be seriously impressed with this gift since not many people can say they have a portrait of themselves.
Remember, regardless of what you buy the dad in your life for Father’s Day, it’s the thought that always counts. He’ll love it because it came from you.
