Father’s Day can sometimes be the hardest shopping season of the year. I know it definitely is for me. If you want to change it up for dad come his big day, check out my top Father’s Day Gift Ideas below.
Oliberte Fair Trade Shoes starting at $55
If dad doesn’t have one of these Hydroflasks, it is a must buy. If he does already have one… then get him another! Hydroflask is the best insulated container that I have ever used (and I’ve been in the hottest and coldest climates in the world over the past year).
Also moms and dads with babies- this is a breastmilk life saver! At one gathering I attended recently that was full of parents, we had a Hydroflask full of icy beer next to a Hydroflask full of breastmilk (preserved at the perfect temperature). It pretty much sums up the versatility of this flask.
Choose from a number of specialized beans from around the world, and within 24 hours, they will be roasted and shipped to you in a rustic paper parcel, that looks like it could have been hand delivered by Indiana Jones himself. Any coffee loving dad with an adventurous spirit will appreciate the complexity of these beans.
Let dad chill his whiskey with these golf ball chillers by SipDark. These will add a slight chill to your whiskey without diluting the flavor.
Is dad a bibliophile? Then he will love these literary socks featuring some of the most prominent books which have been banned in the past. (To Kill a Mockingbird, The Great Gatsby, The Catcher in the Rye, James and the Giant Peach, Gone with the Wind, Catch-22, Native Son, Clockwork Orange… and the list goes on and on.)
If the dad in your life is into photography, considering giving him an upgraded accessory with this beautiful all-leather strap by Tether. Built to last, these will ship straight from the workshop in Huntington Beach, and I hear Tether’s customer service is top notch.
Donut Warming Mug $30 (set of 2)
Possibly the best invention ever created. You can hold and warm donuts, cookies, muffins, bagels …whatever…. on this mug, and your coffee and tea will stay hotter longer thanks to the design. (I purchased about a half dozen of these, because it is pretty much the best gift ever. )
Tech dads will love this handmade docking station with an Edison light to add a retro flare.
Any NFL loving dad will appreciate these coasters made from the same leather used for official NFL footballs. It is produced by Horween, the famous Chicago tannery that is the exclusive supplier for this specific leather.
This is a fun way to create an organic fireball. An all-natural, handmade spice infusion will add a kick to any whiskey loving dad’s spirit.
Check out this unique conversation piece that will add a little science to dad’s decor. This bioluminescent aquarium is filled with plankton that produce a vivid blue light when disturbed in the dark!
I’d say this is for the germaphobic dad, but frankly, any person with common sense will appreciate this invention. This is the first cell phone charger that cleans your phone while it charges. It does this by producing light that sends a specific wavelength to kill bacteria and viruses without damaging your phone.
The UncommonGreen makes Bareware engraved with maps and smart stuff. Check out their molecular champagne flutes and constellation wine glasses while you’re over there.
Women aren’t the only ones who like to feel like they have freshly exited a day spa. This all-natural kit will keep even the manliest man working with his hands both smooth and moisturized.
Voted top infared grill, this barbecue cooks evenly, creates a juicier piece of meat, and gives you those special grill marks that are worthy of a glamour shot. Yes, it is pricey, but rather than getting those tiny cheap grills on so many lists, this is for someone who has been saving up to do something special. (If dad already has a barbecue and this is out of your budget, check out some awesome grill accessories.)
Handcrafted from rustic pine, this compact and clever design gives you all the basics to get brewing one gallon of tasty beer (about 10 bottles), including a set of 4 five ounce sampler glasses and coasters so dad can share.
This durable, chemical free, waxed canvas lunch bag is stylish and eco-friendly and leak resistant. The Beeswax blend is natural, antibacterial and makes dad’s lunch bag waterproof thanks to the canvas and wax construction.
Made from 100% real retired American white oak whiskey barrels, these chips will add flavor to any backyard smoke out!
Rather than a mini barbecue, a mini smoker is more practical and will likely be used more often. This Father’s Day give dad the perfect excuse for upping his grill game. Smoke anything you can think of with this easy-to-use grill/smoker. All you need is add your favorite marinated meat, wood chips (see above), and water for the perfect smoked meal.
