Father’s Day is nearly here, and today we’ve rounded up some great gift ideas for you.

If you’ve got time to to make a gift, we suggest checking out Unique DIY Gifts for Father’s Day.
Best Father’s Day Gift Ideas
Shopping for Father’s Day is challenging. My husband never gives me a clue to what he wants, and I shop for both our own fathers as well.
This year, I let our 6-year-old decide what we made her daddy for Father’s Day. She chose to make a photo book. I purchased this blank scrapbook and these acid free markers.
I will print a bunch of photos of family photos and adhere them in the book, and then let the kids draw around the photos with the markers.
It will probably take us one to two afternoons to complete (depending on their attention span) and I know it will be a super sentimental gift to receive!
Gifts for New Dads
Welcoming your first child is one of the most incredible milestones in life. In this first guide, we include ideas to make a first Father’s Day extra special!
We love this first Father’s Day photo frame, and this ice cream spoon is too cute. You could also make him a special gift like a baby’s first photo book or a chipboard family photo book.

Tools for Dad
Some stereotypical gifts like this ratchet screwdriver and digital tape measure are go-to’s for a reason! This list will help you pick out something that the handyman dad in your life will love.
If you’re looking for project ideas, woodworking DIYs on the blog and a tool organizer like this would be perfect for keeping everything nice and neat.

Tech Gifts for Dad
Dad doesn’t have to be super ”techy” to enjoy a gift in the electronics category. An Ember mug is an amazing gift if you’re a daily coffee drinker. Say goodbye to cold coffee forever!
We love listening to records at home (here’s Elsie’s setup) and Crosley always makes record players with the best colors.
A pair of AirPods or an Apple Watch are gifts that we don’t always think to buy for ourselves, but they end up getting used every day. Pretty good gift idea if you ask us. 🙂

Outdoor Gifts for Dad
Summer is almost here, so that means more time enjoying the sunshine (and maybe a cocktail or two?). It’s easier than you think to build your own fire pit, but you could also buy something like this budget-friendly fire pit, and enjoy all the s’mores.
Is it even summer without a game of cornhole or pizza in an outdoor oven?

Food Gifts for Dad
For the dad who has everything, sending or sharing something edible can be the perfect gift!
Consumable gifts like these handcrafted spice blends and movie night popcorn kit are a great way to give something unique, and something they may not try otherwise.
We have plenty of recipes to choose from on the blog if you’re wanting to make dad a homemade meal for Father’s Day. If you’re thinking brunch, you can’t go wrong with a biscuits and gravy casserole!

Personalized Gifts for Dad
Father’s Day mugs are a classic gift. A customized mug makes a fun memory for years to come. We included several options in this guide. Custom books are a fun idea, from Super Dad to I Am Daddy’s Gift.
Photo gifts are also a great idea. We love this heart photo collage and this instant photo gallery. These are a great way to get photos off your phone and onto your walls!
You could even turn your children’s art into a photobook like Elsie did with her daughters’ paintings.
Speaking of personalized books, you can shop our favorite Father’s Day gift ideas on Etsy here!

Awesome ideas, thank you!!
Where is your husband’s mustard shirt from in the photo? I would love to add that to my Father’s Day gifts, so any information would be greatly appreciated.
Hi! He says it’s from Target (it was a few years back). XX!
