Father’s Day is right around the corner, so now is the perfect time to find the perfect gift for the beloved dads and grandpas in your life. Opting for a personalized gift is always a good option, and you can never go wrong with a handmade card. If you’re struggling to think of a great gift for your dad, review the Father’s Day gift ideas below. Even if none of them fit your dad’s interests, they may inspire other ideas.
Father’s Day Gift Ideas
“What I Love About Grandpa” Book
To get your kids involved in a very personalized gift for grandpa, consider buying this special book. It’s filled with fun prompts like: “You look extra-sharp when you wear that _____” and “Your philosophy of life is truly _____.” As you and/or your children fill in the blanks, you can be as sweet or funny as you like. Your dad will undoubtedly feel loved and appreciated.
A Daily Photo Calendar
If you love taking and sharing pictures, why not give your dad a custom daily photo calendar? Social Print Studio’s Daily Calendar allows you to craft a small, tear-away calendar using 365 of your personal photos. Your dad can keep the photos he most likes, perhaps sticking them up on his fridge or even framing them. Be sure to choose special photos for important dates as well – for example, a picture of your mom on her birthday.
An Online Class Through MasterClass
It’s never too late to learn something new! No matter what your father’s interests, he can probably find a MasterClass that interests him. Through this online service, your dad can take a class in his area of interest. Plus, the classes are taught by some famous experts. Here are a few examples:
- James Patterson Teaches Writing
- Neil deGrasse Tyson Teaches Scientific Thinking and Communication
- Dr. Jane Goodall Teaches Conversation
- Steve Martin Teaches Comedy
- Annie Leibovitz Teaches Photography
- Wolfgang Puck Teaches Cooking
- Garry Kasparov Teaches Chess
Does your dad love to regale you with stories about his Italian grandma? Has he ever insisted that you’re related to Abraham Lincoln – at least, according to his Uncle Scott? To help him learn a little more about his family roots, give him an AncestryDNA kit. Using cutting-edge science, the kit can help your dad learn more about the specific regions your family hails from (not just the countries) and help him trace your ancestors’ journeys over time.
All dads are different, so maybe the ideas above aren’t a good fit for your dad. Check out the following list for even more gift ideas:
- A metal detector
- A weighted blanket
- Monogrammed socks
- A hand-stamped fishing lure (available on Etsy)
- Comfy slippers
- A foot or neck massager
- An insulated mug
- A magazine subscription (such as Popular Mechanics)
- Leather work gloves
- A fleece robe
- A picture frame with a photo of you together
- Custom golf balls
We hope these Father’s Day gift ideas come in handy, but don’t forget that the most precious gift is spending quality time with your father. So instead of getting hung up on finding the perfect gift, simply do your best and then plan to spend some time together. Your dad will undoubtedly appreciate the sentiment and the fact that you made time for him in your busy schedule.
