Father's Day Gifts Ideas
A father is neither an anchor to hold us back nor a sail to take us there, but a guiding light whose love shows us the way.

Father’s Day, June 16th, is the day dedicated to celebrating the contribution and huge role that fathers and father figures make in their children’s lives.

Sometimes coming up with ideas can be hard. Maybe you could take an outing to Top Golf or to the Shooting Range. Does he enjoy museums? What about fishing? You could pack a picnic and enjoy just being still and talking. You could get all the siblings together for a fun game day and provide his favorite snacks/food. Is there a power tool he has been wanting? Or maybe a new grill that a few of you can chip in to get for him?
Your dad will love anything you gift him, because it came from you. Or if you just end up spending some time with him and getting him a handwritten card, that will most likely mean the world to him. Either way, I had way too much putting together this list.

This makes me smile. If your husband/dad is a gamer and a fan of chocolate it is a win-win! You get to choose between milk, dark and white chocolate.

If your dad/husband loves to travel, help make his adventures a little more comfortable with a pillow. I have also heard great things about  this  one as well.

These types of gifts are so fun to me. It’s an opportunity for them to get creative and for you to do something together, if you choose, as a bonding moment.

Most men that I know with facial hair are very proud of it. This comb is so sleek looking.  My husband has actually “stolen” one of my hair teasing brushes as his beard comb. It is this one  here .

Custom made shirt ranging from $64-$90. All with using your phone/their app - measurements and all. You choose one of their many options - style, color, pattern, print, etc. and then use your phone to take your measurements. They also do jeans and suits! I love companies that stand behind themselves - they will do remakes and 100% money back within 90 days.

My husband owns this wireless charger and gives it a thumbs up.

This is another tried and true item we own. We have had it for I don’t know how many years and have never once had an issue with it. Brought it with when floating the river, to Hawaii, everywhere!

Perfume is one of those things where it’s hard for me to just go out and buy for myself, its pricy and I would rather be treated or gifted it. Apparently my husband is the same way. I had bought him two of my favorite smelling colognes and many years ago he was getting low and knowing that Valentines Day was coming up, he started leaving his almost empty bottle on the counter to give me a hint. I, unfortunately, missed that clue. Thankfully for me, our anniversary is just the next month. This the other  cologne  that I love the smell of.

I get my broad palette and love for food from my dad. You can put together a cute little basket of some of his favorite snacks plus some new ones for him to try. These pretzels are SO GOOD! My dad and brother in law love them and even my husband, who does not like pretzels has made an exception for these ones.

If he enjoys a drink every now and then you can get him a bottle of one of his favorites, a couple packs of craft beer, or a Whiskey Decanter set like this one.

Is he a gamer? Or spend a lot of time at the computer? This gaming chair has an extra high back to help give extra support and it’s a little more adjustable than other computer chairs out there. Comes in 8 different color options!

This one was such a fun gift to put together and gift to my husband. His love for legos and art runs deep, so why not combine the two?!?! I found Mr. Lego Art on Etsy. Price varies on how many subjects are going to be in the picture. Let me clarify, it is not an actual picture but a digital copy for you to do what you please with. I send him a bunch of pictures of us to get an idea and then he creates us into a 3D lego family portrait picture. When he was done he sent me the file to review and I was able to tell him any changes that I wanted made before sending me over the final file. I then took that file and had a local  metal print shop  print it onto a 2x2ft square metal to be hung by his computers. All in all, it was a pricier gift BUT how surprised he was by it and how much he loves it was so worth it. It is a piece of art after all.  (If you are concerned about the background of that image, don’t be! The metal print I gave to my husband is just our portraits on a completely white background)

I think this is another cute and customizable piece of art if he is into fishing!

Maybe he has always wondered about his ancestry and health!

A gift that speaks a little truth with humor mixed in. 😉 Speaking of funny, personalized socks with the kids (or dogs) face on it is always fun. I have used  this  company before to make some!

Subscription boxes are so much fun and it’s the gift that keeps on giving. I gave this one to my husband a few year back for Christmas and he really enjoyed it. If your dad isn’t big into sci-fi, fantasy, and fandom these other subscription boxes may be worth checking out:   Bespoke Post . Is a subscription box that is geared towards men. It has a variety of themed boxes each month and members can choose which one they want to receive (or skip a month if none of them are standing out to you). Some of the categories include food and drink, fashion, products for the home, and more.   Brēō Box . This one is a touch more, but it is a quarterly/seasonal subscription. Every quarter you get a wooden box that is hand packed with 6-9 premium products that are geared towards health, fitness, and lifestyle that are geared towards the season.
