Great Father’s Day Gift Ideas

Sports-related gifts:

Just because dad appreciates anything with his favorite football team’s colors on it, there’s no excuse to get lazy when picking out a Father’s Day gift for him. If a sports-related gift really is the best way to say a heartfelt ‘Thank you’ to dad, then get him something truly unique. Your options include a toaster that will toast his favorite team’s logo on to the bread, a stencil you can use to spray-paint his team logo onto the lawn, and a life-sized team mascot. For fathers who love getting active as much as they love watching their favorite teams play, a sleek fitness regulator wristband or even some nice sports equipment would be a good idea.

Technology-related gifts:

If your father has a love for sleek gadgets and the latest technology, then these gifts are sure to score well with him. Depending on your budget, you can opt to buy him a cool gadget that he needs, or just get him a fashionable accessory that will make his device even more comfortable to use. A dolphin-shaped wireless mouse is a handy tool his friends and colleagues are sure to envy. A professional lens for his smartphone will let him use his mobile camera like an ace photographer. You don’t even have to go shopping, in fact. Find his tablet or smartphone and buy him a cool app that he will truly appreciate.

Hobby books:

Whether your dad loves working with his tools in the shed, or he prefers barbecuing in the backyard, a hobby book is a thoughtful gift that will help him get better at doing what he loves. You can find hobby books on virtually any subject under the sun. Some of them are merely informative, while others are full of tips and lessons for getting better at the trade.


Getting dad a tie for Father’s Day is passé. Clothes are as good an option as any other for a great Father’s Day gift. A formal shirt can be used for important meetings at work, while a pair of athletic sweatpants is something he can relax in at home. When buying dad clothes, just make sure you’re aware of his personal tastes so that your gift is not forgotten at the back of his closet. A good addition to his wardrobe is something that is both practical and touching.

Homemade Father’s Day Gifts:

These gifts do take a little more effort, but they’re sure to floor any type of dad. The options are numerous. You can sit with the kids to create cute personalized desk organizers, crowns, paperweights, bookmarks or even picture frames that dad will cherish long after Father’s Day is over.
