Fathers Day Gift Ideas for Dads

Father’s Day is just around the corner and it’s crunch time! Get inspired by these unique gift ideas below! The DIY gifts require only a handful of supplies and are easy to do! 

 Tangible and DIY Gifts

Does he get the travel bug? Get a scratch off map for him to showcase where he has explored. Or let him travel in true comfort with the Ultimate Travel Jacket or Sweatshirt – 15 features including large pockets to hold a tablet and small pockets to hold passports, eye mask, stylus/pen zipper, quick to inflate/deflate neck pillow and more!


Does he enjoy fixing things around the house? Gift Moldable glue for something different! Also, get more ideas with my post for those that like to do their own repairs, which includes the Leatherman Tread bracelet that has 29 tools built in! You can make King of Duct Tape Crowns as described by Hostess With the Mostess’ Tutorial.Does he wish his keys were less bulky? Gift the Orbit Key Organizer – a different kind of key ring – that helps reduce key noise and bulky pockets.

Does he like being different from the crowd? This Bamboo Wood Watch may just be the perfect and functional way to set himself apart! He’ll draw-in a lot of interest when drinking out of a glass with a real bullet lodged into it. These ZeroUV Rimless sunglasses are also a cool way to go!


Planning on making him a special breakfast on his big day? If so, then these little extras will make it that much more memorable! Maple Organic Cotton Candy to decorate his pancakes or waffles! Make bacon bowls to serve scrambled eggs in, with a great summary of trial and error by Not Martha. You can serve the strongest organic coffee too (Death Wish Coffee has 4.7 stars out of 5 with more than 13,000 reviews!)!Is he the Dad that loves being outside with the kids or working out at the gym? A fun game to have the family try is Spikeball! A fun merge of volleyball, four square and hackey sack.

If you want to go the cute route, then check out this Papa Bear T-shirt and Bear Claw Cookies – the recipe can be found at Clare’s Little Tots blog!

Gift of Experience


If the Dad you have in mind is an aspiring chef or likes kitchen gadgets, likes to fix things around the house,  likes a clean house, is experiencing their first Father’s Day or has a new little one that has recently joined the family, loves to swim, excited for the upcoming solar eclipse or has a special cat that he adores – then you will want to check out my current blog posts that I have available. I’ll have a lot more next year as I continue to build out my site – since Gifter Grid has just launched – be sure to subscribe to get monthly updates!

A few additional ideas that may be of interest are to get tickets to the following:

Gift flight lessons (find an FAA-certified school near you) or the chance to drive the car of their dreams!

If they are a thrill seeker, then a bungee jumping, ziplining or skydiving adventure near you would be fun!

If you’d like to gift them a trip away or an adventure, but don’t know what your calendar looks like just yet, then check out – you can gift an event throughout the world that they have TWO years to book!

Extreme Gift: If they love survivor type shows, then you can check out Doc Castaway – with a vacation experience on a remote island to truly feel like a castaway.


Gift of Charity

National At Home Dad Network: A volunteer run non-profit that allows you to help other Dads as they aim to provide advocacy, community, education and support for families where the fathers are the primary caregivers for their children.

Good Plus Foundation – Engaging Fathers Initiative: Making families stronger by promoting and expanding fatherhood based programs and father-inclusiveness through various social services throughout the nation is their goal.

The Extra Mile: A non-profit that is purely based on donations, wants to collect frequent flyer miles from people who don’t need them so that they can give them to those who desperately do, to visit terminally ill loved ones with cancer. The founder of this non-profit shares his story about his Father who was terminally ill and how much travel was involved to be able to be with him throughout his diagnosis and his passing – help other families unite during difficult times.

National Family Military Association: Make a tribute gift in honor of an amazing Dad that can help make the lives of military dads and their families better by bringing kids together for a week of camp to help them heal from the wounds of war.

And if you are needing some last minute deals!
