To Dad, From Your Adult Children: 15 Awesome Gifts for Father’s Day
Gone are the days when you can get away with giving your dad a macaroni art card or buying him a tie for the fifth year in the row. You’re an adult now (for the most part) and it’s time to surprise him with a gift he’ll actually like and use. Don’t worry if you don’t know where to start, we’re here to help.
Here are 15 gift ideas that we bet your dad will love this Father’s Day and he’ll actually use.
1. Subscription Boxes
A gift that keeps on giving, literally month after month. Check out our favorite men’s subscription boxes; Dollar Shave Club, Loot Crate, and Birchbox Man. There are so many subscription boxes out there now and just depending on the dad you can find one that best fits him.
2. Recreate an Old Photo
Nostalgia is one of the best ways to tug at the heart string! Recreate a picture of you and your favorite toys, pets, or siblings and place it side by side with the original.
3. Quality Slippers
Your dad has worked hard all his life for you to live a comfortable life. This Father’s Day make sure he’s comfortable (and stylish) with a pair of Allbirds Wool Loungers.
4. Exotic Car Driving Experience
If your dad is a big car buff and always says “I’ll never have one of those” every time he sees an exotic car on the street this one is for him. Groupon the e-commerce website that helps customers save always has deals on experiences like this one from Exotic Driving Experiences in California and Las Vegas. Unless you can afford to buy him your car-loving dad will appreciate the chance to drive his dream cars.
5. Quality Headphones
Airpods, Bose SoundSports, whatever brand you choose; spoil your dad with a quality pair of headphones or earbuds. We’re sure he’s sacrificed a ton for you and he’d never buy something like this for himself, so you should! They’re practical and everyone needs headphones at some point in their life.
6. Take Him to his Favorite Restaurant
Every Father’s Day you’d go out with your family to celebrate him, but now that you’re older (and hopefully have some money) you can treat him to a drink and a nice meal. There’s a certain point when becoming an adult you start trying to give back everything they have given to help you grow up.
7. Record Player
We know we’ve thrown a lot tech gift ideas into the list so let’s slow it down and bring it back with a classic record player and a couple of records from his favorite artists. It’s functional and a rustic piece in a living room or office.
8. Hydro Flask Beer Growler
Get your dad an incognito way to hide his beer his next picnic or beach trip with a Hydro Flask Beer Growler. The beer specific bottles come in a 32oz and 64oz sizes. Hydro Flask even offers a beer bundle so your dad can be the hit at the next neighborhood BBQ when he whips of cups for sharing. Plus when he’s not using it for a beer he can stay hydrated, but let’s be real when will he really use it for water.
If your dad hasn’t jumped on the smartwatch train, get him on it! They say with age you need to be more active and a smartwatch is an amazing way to keep track of your activity throughout the day.
10. Bluetooth Smart Speaker
11. Ticket to a game of His Favorite Sports Team
If you grew up watching sports with your dad, then this is a way to throw it back to the good old days. It will be both thoughtful and nostalgic for the both of you!
12. Dope Running Shoes
Running shoes are always a good option for a Father’s Day gift, but instead of his usual Asics or Sketchers (no shade intended) get him a pair or Adidas or Nikes. The dad shoe is coming back in style but these two brands are doing it in a hypebeast way.
13. His Favorite Bottle of Alcohol
Not only will he be excited he has another bottle of his favorite alcohol, but it will also look amazing on your part for remembering. Remember it’s the thought that counts!
14. Cool Sunglasses
15. Your Favorite Picture of You Two in a Frame
The best for last, this one will really tug at his heartstrings. Nothing like a little reminder of why he is celebrating this holiday.
