Even if Father’s Day has been on your mind for a number of weeks now, it can prove to be quite the challenge in finding a gift for the father figure in your life. No matter if it’s for your dad, or in guiding your kids to a gift for their dad, or someone special who fulfills that role, the same question comes up “what does he want or need?”
If after asking dad you’re left without any ideas, and you’re feeling uncertain which direction to proceed, it's time you focus on gifts he can use every day.There's no need to worry about an endless search, or settling at the last minute, because we’ve got you covered with these 12 great Father's Day gift ideas.
The Gift He'll Keep on Wearing
Dad insists that he already has everything on the face of the planet, or he claims he doesn’t have any idea what he wants or needs, but there is one thing all dads have in common: feeling comfortable. This year, select a gift for dad that will instill a constant reminder of how important and loved he is, by giving the gift of style, comfort and convenience with some lounge wear. Imagine dad waking up to a brisk spring or summer morning, pouring his first cup of fresh coffee, grabbing the newspaper, and sitting out on the front porch in his new favorite lounge wear.
A great way to know dad is resting comfortably at home is by giving him new sleepwear in which he can stay cool and casual during those warm summer nights. There will also be those crisper evenings where dad will need a little extra attire to relax in, to put over his sleepwear.
1. Classic Robe
A comfy robe will complement his pajamas perfectly. Not only will he find it useful, but it’s also versatile in that it will keep him warm.
2. Smoking Jacket
Another fabulous choice to consider this year for a Father’s Day gift is a smoking jacket. He may not know it yet, but this could easily become his favorite gift to wear while relaxing quietly at home, day or night. While having a cigar at the end of the day is no longer as common as it once was, a smoking jacket remains an elevated and classy alternative to the standard robe.
Keep Dad as comfortable as possible with some plush slippers! They are easy to slip on and will keep his feet warm during the cold months.
Comfy lounge wear is great, but for the more fashion-forward dad, some sleek and stylish suspenders are an awesome gift he never knew he needed. There are many to choose from, and they make for a nice alternative to always wearing a belt. You may have never seen your dad wear a pair of suspenders, so is there a pair that would spark his interest, and match his personality? Yes! There is a pair of suspenders for every dad.
Whether he would enjoy a pair of dress suspenders to complete his business or evening out attire, some novelty suspenders to show off his personality interests, during work in his trade and everything else in-between, your dad will appreciate something new and fun to wear.
These solid color CTM suspenders are available in 8 colors and come with a matching bow tie. A great choice for any occasion!
For the Active Dad
After several months combating the cold elements winter spews out, dad is ready to embrace the warm, sun soaked days of summer. What a convenient time for Father’s Day to come around as dad is ready to begin his outdoor season.
5. A New Hat
During his next hike or fishing getaway, a men’s bucket hat would make for an excellent gift as it's both practical for sun protection, and easy to carry with their lightweight, packable cotton material. And, if dad is a real fishing fanatic, there are other fish-related gift ideas here.
6. Fanny Pack
For the dad that loves to go hiking or running, a fanny pack is a great gift. Not only are they a trendy fashion statement, but they also provide convenient, hands-free storage for a water bottle, house keys, and a wallet while you're out exercising.
While socks may seem like a less than exciting option, everyone needs them, and dad will definitely be grateful. Athletic socks are the perfect gift for dads who love to exercise, and cool patterned socks are great for stylish dad's who want to add a pop of color to their outfits.
Sometimes you may want to stick with something that's traditional, but always appreciated. Have you noticed dad's old wallet is looking a little worn out? Or maybe his favorite belt is starting to peel around the edges. It’s okay; it shows he has put it to good use. And with Father’s Day on the horizon, it’s the perfect time for a brand new wallet or belt.
While dad may already have a basic wallet, there are plenty of cool and unique designs out there to add style and personality to his accessory collection. One option is this quality leather wallet by Columbia. Not only does it have a unique look, it also features a money clip and RFID protection for an enticing combination of security, and convenience.
There is a wide assortment of men’s wallets available for a well deserved and much needed Father’s Day gift including the bifold, trifold, and many wallets which include the anti-theft security of RFID.
9. Gift Set
Another great option for a Father’s Day gift is this leather belt boxed set as it comes with a reversible belt (black to brown), 2 removable belt buckles, and a reusable valet tray. This is sure to impress dad, as what guy won’t appreciate versatility, style, and presentation all in one Father’s Day gift?
Don't Forget Grandpa
You have some great ideas on what gift to give dad this year for Father’s Day, but you don’t want to exclude someone who has brought you years of wisdom and support, fond memories, and countless laughs: grandpa.
Of course Grandpa will appreciate and enjoy anything you choose just for him this Father’s Day, but like dad, he also may insist that he doesn’t want or need anything, so what better way to show your love for him than giving him something unexpected.
12. "Grandpa" Gear
If you have your heart set on satisfying grandpa’s fun and young at heart personality, the hands down choice is a Grandpa shirt with imprinted Mickey Mouse ears. He'll be proud to advertise his "grandpa" status. To complete another unforgettable Father’s Day, gather your family including dad, mom, and grandma for a Disney photo while everyone is wearing their matching Mickey or Minnie Mouse attire.
If you’re still thinking about what to select this year for dad, here are a couple of other fabulous options.
• For the father on the go to and from his work office, or one who must travel frequently, a quality messenger bag or briefcase will keep his work essentials, and laptop or tablet protected and organized.
• If dad is working hard on his feet all day, and could use a little extra support, these insoles will make standing up through the day much more comforting.
For a great Father’s Day gift for both dad and grandpa, there are many other suspenders, pajamas, and slipper options to choose from. So don’t fret, you got this!
