Unique Father's Day Gift Ideas

When it comes to buying gifts for dad, there really are many great options other than the traditional necktie. Of course, if your dad is a collector of neckties, then, by all means, grab that necktie! The most important thing is the thought behind the gift.

P.S. – If you can’t be with your dad on Father’s Day, don’t forget to call him! If you can be with him, take lots of photos. Better yet, get someone else to take the photos. One of these days, you’ll look back and be glad that you were actually in the photos. Trust me!

Anything to do with the grill and hubby would be very happy. He has already hinted at a certain power tool that he could really use in the shop. Pictures circled have been laying out.

I love how you’ve broken these dad gifts into named categories. My husband is a bit of each of them though and I see several items that he would be thrilled to receive.

Amber Myers May 31, 2018 - 8:13 am

I love these ideas. I’m not sure what I’ll be getting my dad yet. I’m thinking something practical since he’s in his 70s.

Shoshana Sue May 31, 2018 - 8:51 am

I love your tip about having someone take the photo of dad and them. I cut my dad out of my life a few years ago so Fathers Day is like any other day. The gifts you picked a well thought out!

These are a wonderful Father’s Day gift ideas. I know the Mister would love all of them. I’ve never heard of a meat claw set.

I can’t believe Father’s Day is almost here, the year is flying by. I still haven’t figured out what I’m getting my Dad.

Jeanette May 31, 2018 - 10:10 am

I love all the ideas that you have here for Father’s Day! I found a fun one then thinking about getting my husband. It is a mug that stirs a coffee for you just like pressing a button LOL. It just looks like a fun one.

My hubby has been wanting an Echo Dot for his workshop. But he also like grilling! Thankfully, he has a lot of interests so he is easy to buy for.

sara May 31, 2018 - 7:21 pm

I love the idea of getting my husband some grill items. He loves to cook dinner on the grill and those gloves look so cool!

Katie Kinsley May 31, 2018 - 8:10 pm

I would love to get any tech related for my dad, but he doesn’t even use a smart phone. I live far away, so I only plan on sending him a card instead.

Angela Ricardo May 31, 2018 - 8:21 pm

Hubby loves working out. I NEVER ever thought about giving him a gym bag but it totally makes so much sense. I can’t wait to surprise him with one.

Lisa Favre May 31, 2018 - 9:57 pm

My hubby would totally fall under the Weekend Warrior Dad. I absolutely love all of your suggestions!

Anosa Malanga June 1, 2018 - 1:18 am

Dad already told us what he want to have this Father’s Day. I guess I will add the printable as a card for him. Indeed some sort of a personal touch.

Chubskulit Rose June 1, 2018 - 6:28 am

Fun gift ideas indeed. When it comes to gifts, my husband is the hardest so these helps, thank you!

Jenn June 1, 2018 - 9:00 am

These are all great gift suggestions. I struggle every year on what to buy my dad for Father’s Day. he does love Star Trek.

Tomi C June 1, 2018 - 9:13 am

We bought hubby an Apple watch a few years ago and I think that charging station would be perfect for him. The convenience of charging his phone AND his watch = WINNING

Jess June 2, 2018 - 1:47 am

Literally everything on this list my husband would love. I’m digging that backpack specifically!

Glenda Cates June 3, 2018 - 10:48 am

Such wonderful Gifts not only for our husband but for our dads as well. You will make our shopping easier as I can share the Gifts with my son to see which ones he would like to get his father.
