Father’s Day Gift Ideas for Every Type of Dad


Father’s Day is just around the corner. Whether you plan on celebrating dad from near or far, now is the time to start brainstorming the perfect gift to show your love and appreciation for the big guy. To help you out, we’ve compiled a list of 10 gift ideas for every type of dad.

The homebody.

Does your dad love to chill? If so, chances are he’s a homebody who would love a great pair of house slippers. Perfect for lounging around the house and trekking outside to take out the trash, these comfy pile-lined slippers from Minnetonka will ensure dad relaxes at home in style.

The tech savant.

For the dad who’s always in the know of the latest gadgets, surprise him with one of the coolest ones out right now — audio sunglasses. Made by Bose, these sunnies are not only fashionable but also functional with open-ear audio technology that allows the wearer to listen to music discreetly.

The outdoorsy one.

Summer is in full effect, and outdoorsmen everywhere are ready to take advantage of the warm weather. Keep dad refreshed and hydrated by gifting him with the cooler of all coolers.  Perfectly sized, this multipurpose cooler holds up to 30 cans plus ice and is 100% leakproof, puncture-resistant, and mildew-resistant.

The sentimental guy.

From wood prints to mugs and more, you’re sure to find a gift that’ll tug at your dad’s heartstrings at Wpix. Whatever gift you choose, Wpix promises that it’ll be handmade and carefully inspected for quality before shipment. 

The jokester.

If gag gifts are your dad’s thing, the impossible puzzle is sure to give him a chuckle. The handmade acrylic puzzle boasts 200 pieces and includes two additional puzzle pieces that don’t actually fit to make this puzzle—well, impossible.

The sports fanatic.

No matter which sport holds your dad’s heart, the ticket stub diary is the perfect gift for the sports fanatic that loves to keep memorabilia like ticket stubs from his beloved sporting events.

The businessman.

Keep dad hip with socks that really say, “I love you, dad.” This colorful three-pack set is sure to be a fun addition to his sock drawer and an ice-breaker at his next meeting.

The jet setter.

For the dad who likes to go, go, go, the charger roll-up is a great companion. Available in a wide range of colors and fabrics, this gift will be a lifesaver when it comes to helping dad keep his chargers handy and organized while traveling.

The fitness buff.

Nike is always a good choice for the avid fitness buff, but if you’re not sure of your dad’s workout style, a Nike gift card is an awesome option. Bonus: you can purchase a physical card and have it mailed to your dad or go digital with an email version. Double bonus: currently, 1% of every Nike gift card purchase goes to support Marathon Kids.

The foodie.

Mantry is a food subscription service made for the foodie father. Featuring six full-size artisan food products, Mantry will arrive at your dad’s doorstep in a handmade wooden crate and a custom manual detailing recipes and each product’s story.

The one who has it all.

Shower the dad who has everything with love by hosting a small, laid-back family gathering. Have food catered, fire-up the grill, or whip up his favorite meal in the kitchen. Whatever you choose, allow dad to kick back, relax, and enjoy his special day.
