And just when you thought all the holidays were over, Father’s Day is right around the corner! But don’t worry, you’ve got plenty of time! Father’s Day is June 18th this year so don’t panic, you didn’t forget!
For me, finding a gift for Dad is a lot harder than finding a gift for Mom. So I did some searching and found some of the best gift ideas that are a guaranteed win for Dad! All Dad’s are very different in terms of hobby so I broke this up in a simple way! Scroll down to find the best hobby or personality that fits your Dad and see what I found!
The Little Bacon Cookbook
If they love bacon and love to cook this is a fun option for you! This cookbook has 40 recipes featuring bacon that are all creative and super yummy! You can find this at Urban Outfitters for $19.95. Click here to be transferred to the website.
Well Done, Dad Apron
For the Dad always in the kitchen, this is a must! Keep the food in the kitchen and off him with this quirky apron from Paper Source. It retails for $19.95 and if you click here you’ll go right to it!
The Grillfather Apron
Or if you wanna go with a more comical apron there’s this one from Etsy by YouHadMeAtInk. If your dad is a movie buff and chef, this one is a really great choice and you’re killing two birds with one stone! You also have the option to customize the apron to have it say whatever you want and have a choice of which color you want it to be! Again, I love Etsy and support it 100% because all the money goes directly to the artist and you are supporting a small business! This retails for $25.00 and is coming from Kingsland, Georgia. Unfortunately, this item only ships within the US, but if you like this idea I’m sure you can find another option! Click here to be transferred to the website.
If your dad likes to Barbecue these are an absolute must! William-Sonoma has a ton of barbecuing essentials such as spices and sauces that your dad will be sure to use and try out. The one I have featured here is the Top-Rated BBQ Sauce Set and it retails for $34.95. There’s several options such as a spicy BBQ set, Memphis BBQ rub, and burger sets. The one that sounded really interesting to me was Truffle Burger Set, so I might even check that out for my dad! There’s so many choices so definitely check this out if your dad loves to cook and barbecue! Especially with summer coming up here in the US, barbecues will be going on every other night so you know he’ll definitely use them!
Omaha Steak Delivery
If your dad loves meat and is looking to try something different, Omaha Steaks is an awesome company that will actually send the meat to you! Get your dad a gift card from here so he can pick out whatever he wants from steak to seafood he’ll be happy to try something new! The website actually has a page dedicated to Father’s Day so you can see what other people are getting, create your own custom combo of meats, or pick out Dad’s favorites to cook up on Father’s Day! Even if you won’t be home on Father’s Day or you don’t live by your parents, you can choose the “send to someone else” option and they’ll ship it to their address instead of yours!
Native Union Dock+ Lighting Charging Dock
If your dad loves his phone and the thought of being without it in sight makes him panic, this is a great gift. Its a charging station but it also keeps your phone upright which is great for alarms you might set and therefore acts as an alarm clock as well. And since it’s facing upward, the phone will always be within sight and he won’t worry about missing an alarm or important call. You can find this on the Urban Outfitters website for $60.00. Click here to be transferred to the website.
If your dad is always watching videos off of his phone but his eyes, aren’t the greatest, consider the Smartphone Magnifier from Urban Outfitters as a gift. Simply insert the phone into the side of the device and it will act as a magnifying glass for the phone’s screen. It also has a retro-television set appearance that will bring your dad back to simpler times but with more options than just a few channels this time. You can buy this here and it retails for only $30 so its a great gift idea!
Mini Waterproof Speaker
Another really great option for Dad is this mini bluetooth wireless speaker from Brookstone. Really anything at Brookstone your dad will love if he’s into the newest gadgets. I chose this one because it is totally affordable and versatile so he’ll be able to use it no matter what he likes! This is now retailing for $39.99 but they’re going fast!

World’s _________est Dad

Best Dad Ever Picture Frame
Another daily reminder that your dad is the best ever with this 4×6 picture frame from Paper Source as well. This is a great gift for a dad who works in an office or cubicle because he can put it on his desk and be reminded of you and one of the many great times you’ve had together! Print out 3 or 4 of your favorite pictures and include them all in the frame so he can rotate them whenever he wants to be reminded of a new memory each time! It would make it a continuous gift and he can pick his favorites! You can buy this frame here for $16.95.

The Goofy Dad
Where the Wild Dads Went
For the crazy dad who makes everyone laugh, this is a great and funny gift to give! It’s a play off of Where the Wild Things Are, but with dads! Every dad and child can relate to this in one way or another because let’s face it, all dads have at least one thing in common. There is also a version of this for moms but since it’s Father’s Day, I thought we’d stick to this one for now! You can get this book from here for $14.95.
Emergency Dad Jokes Mug
All dads make bad jokes, it’s part of being a dad. But now it’s actually a thing with a creative title: “Dad Jokes.” To me, I find dad jokes funny because they are so cheesy it’s hard not to laugh! Show some appreciation for this poorly crafted jokes with this mug from Etsy vendor WeArePaperPlane. You can also buy a matching coaster to go along with this mug and why not? It’s only $13.41 and the coaster is an extra $5.00.
Farter Father Mug
I think we can all be a little immature and appreciate this mug. It’s funny and a great gag gift to give to the man who fits the title. This is another Etsy find from SpringbrookEngraving. Finding funny items for the goofy dad can be found on mugs especially and are everywhere on Etsy. This one can be bought from here and is only $12.75 so you can do this and something else!
The Sentimental Dad
Letters to My Dad
What dad wouldn’t love a handwritten letter from their child? This booklet is filled with letter prompts to write to your dad that you can write a date on letting them know when to open this! For example, one of the prompts is “what I love most about our family is…” and you just write your own answer and seal it inside the envelope to be opened at a specific date. This is a one-of-a-kind keepsake to give to your dad that he will treasure for years. You can buy this booklet from here for only $14.95.
I Love You, Dad & Here’s Why Booklet
I did this for my dad for Christmas and it was by far his favorite gift. It’s a really great gift that is really thoughtful. Before you fill it out, take the time to brainstorm and fill out the questions on a separate sheet so you make sure you say everything you want to. You can be as thorough as you want with paragraphs or be as simple as bullet points! I added pictures in mine with pictures matching what I was talking out. I highly recommend this one, but make sure you give yourself enough time! You can get this book from here for only $12.95
My dad falls under the category of “sentimental dad,” so I have also gotten this as a gift for him! This is another one of my favorite gifts I’ve gotten for my parents from Etsy. This is totally affordable for as low as $17.99. The service was amazing and the shipping was very fast considering it was coming from Hong Kong. Basically you can send in anything you want — a picture, writing, graphic, etc. It came out amazing and it is a great price so I really recommend this. Click here to be directed to the vendor.
I hope you all found this helpful and found something that you’re interested in!
