Father's Day is just around the corner, and if your dad is anything like mine, he seems to have everything he needs. Choosing a gift for such a dad can be quite a challenge, but it has forced me to get creative over the years! I've got you covered with a variety of fantastic gift ideas that will appeal to Dad’s hobbies and interests – even if he’s fussy. So, let's dive right in!
1. Help Him Get Organized
If your dad loves technology and gadgets but leaves them scattered about, Holme & Hadfield’s The Hub will be the best gift he’s ever received. The Hub is a desk organizer come charging station that is sleek, stylish, and multi-functional – perfect for the practical dad who could use a hand when it comes to staying organized. With charging slots for AirPods and his phone, a watch pillar, felt lined EDC tray, and a drawer for tech accessories, he can keep his devices charged, and his desk tidy and have all his everyday accessories right at his fingertips. I’d call that a big win!
2. Share an Adventure
For dads who have everything, one of the very best gifts to receive is the gift of time. Sharing an experience together is a way to bond over shared interests or an entirely new experience. There are so many things you can do here, depending on what your dad enjoys but here are some fun ideas:
- Cooking class
- Sports car driving experience
- Adventure challenge (e.g. abseiling, rock climbing, etc.)
- DIY or woodworking class
- Hike a challenging trail
- Golf lesson
- Book tickets for his favorite team’s next game
And so forth, you get the general idea! This one is really fun and gives you an opportunity to carve out some quality time with your old man.
3. Restock the Bar
If your dad enjoys entertaining and is passionate about his liquor collection, then a whisky, wine, or beer subscription will delight him. For whisky, gin, wine, and other spirits, The Taster’s Club takes the guesswork out of selecting the perfect bottle by delivering a new hand-picked, award-winning bottle to dad’s doorstep every month. With one-off packages, month-to-month options, and various subscriptions available, you can select a gift that fits your budget.
If dad is more of a beer connoisseur, check out The Original Craft Beer Club’s gift subscription where you can select a box of either 12 or 24 craft beers from independent breweries around the country, delivered at intervals of your choosing. Your dad will receive a curated selection of flavorful and unique beers, allowing him to discover new favorites and expand his craft beer knowledge. Cheers to a memorable Father's Day!
4. Treat His Taste Buds
On the topic of subscription boxes, if your dad is more of a foodie than a wine or beer kinda guy, then a gourmet snack subscription box is a delicious Father’s Day gift that keeps on giving! Universal Yums is one of the best snack subscription services out there, with something to satisfy all those late-night cravings. Your dad can try new snacks from all over the world for just $15 a month plus brush up on his general knowledge with the included country trivia cards.
5. Get Crafty
If your dad enjoys DIY projects or crafts in his free time, you’ll want to check out some of the unique craft and DIY kits available at Uncommon Goods, with kits ranging from under $50 to over $150. From building trains to a smoked cocktail-making set and so much more, these fun kits will let your dad feel like a kid again and unleash his creative side. That’s a gift within itself!
Instead of feeling defeated at the thought of coming up with yet another Father’s Day gift for your hard-to-buy-for dad, I hope these ideas inspire you to think outside the box this year! At the end of the day, it’s the thought that counts, not the gift itself.
