  1. Jessica Joachim

    My husband’s birthday is the day after Father’s day, and he is always such a pain to shop for. Theses are some excellent ideas! I am still a little unsure of what we are getting my husband, but it will probably have something to do with cars.

  2. Love Father’s Day gift lists! I may just be partial since I’m a dad. 🙂 Seriously, there are many items on this list that I wouldn’t mind having and if it is just as hard for a wife to pick out a Father’s Day gift as it can be for husbands to pick out a Mother’s Day gift, then I say keep the lists coming!!

  3. i’m sad because this would be my first year that we will celebrate father’s day without my dad.. he passed away last year but we know that he is now in greater hands… when my dad was alive.. i used to give him custom mugs since he was such a coffee lover.. i remeber giving him a wrist watch too and also a wallet… happy father’s day to all dads!

  4. If my father were here he would enjoy the Jelly Bean and BroBasket. My sons would enjoy the 1. the Carhart Tool Bag 2. The Phillips Norelco and #3. the Nike Green Bay Packers Jersey because he despises them and would probably do lots of mean things to it Haha On the serious side there are many nice choices for any father this Father’s Day!

  5. I admit that dad’s would be into a lot of this as there are a lot of fun gadgets here. And dads are usually about the gadgets. My only problem is with the spinners. I can’t really seeing dads liking the fidget spinners. I guess there may be some out there. But I don’t know.

    1. My husband loves fidget spinners. The guys at his office do too. It’s great for those with ADHD and autism… kids and adults. Check out some of the videos on YouTube.

  6. Thank you for your extensive list of gift suggestions for Father’s day. We have gotten our gift for my husband, but I will still save this page. There will still be birthdays and Christmases to proepare for.

  7. raisingyourpetsnaturally

    13. GRAZE for sure. My dad loves to much on snack foods. This type of gift tends to be my go-to.

  8. I LOVE this. As a guy I would love everything here.. except the fidget spinners lol. I actually got myself some presents this Christmas.. and some match this list haha! No 15 for example.. Not the same brand though

  9. Found this post at the right time! I was just wondering what to get my husband and my father/ father in-law for father’s day. This definitely game me some good ideas! Thank you for sharing 🙂

  10. What a fun gift guide for Father’s Day! For some reason this year has been hard for me to find the perfect thing. I know my dad (and husband) would absolutely love the tool carrying case x

  11. What a unique gift guide for Father’s Day! My dad would love #17 – the tool bag. It’s definitely the coolest tool case I’ve ever seen. All of these are great gift ideas!

  12. These are all great ideas for Dads. I love the Graze subscription idea, men don’t have many (or any?) subscription boxes so it’s good to find one they can enjoy.

  13. My dad is the hardest person to shop for. He has endless free time so he’s already bought himself all the stuff I’ve thought of. It’s nice to have inspiration so I don’t pull my hair out trying to think of something.

  14. Wow, what a great list! I love that there are so many unique ideas here and there’s definitely something for everyone!

  15. These are such practical and creative gift ideas! I really like the belt idea, I bet it will last a lot longer without holes.

  16. Oh my goodness! These are amazing ideas. I am going to have to share them with my Husband for his Dad. My Dad passed away when I was 13. so now I plant a new plant in my memorial garden I made every year.

  17. These are some really terrific ideas. My husband never wants or needs anything, so he’s really hard to give a gift too. I thought I had a great idea this year, and then he told me “spend no money”. Boring.

  18. Our Family World

    My husband is very easy to please. What did he want for Father’s day? Simple. He wanted pizza. Lots and lots of pizza. Wish granted!

  19. These are all great gift ideas for any father for Father’s day. I am going to have to check out Mission Belt for my dad. This belt would be a perfect gift idea for him. Thanks for sharing the gift ideas.

  20. There’s a gift for each of a father’s interest! That’s a really nice guide. There are so many things that the fathers in my life would love here. I really appreciate this list.

  21. Great list, personally we stopped with giving materialistic things for fathers day, nowadays we take my dad our for beer tasting sessions 🙂

  22. Our Family World

    My husband just loves a whole day with the whole family complete. He is happy to have all his children around him having dinner. His only requirement? A good meal that has bacon in it. 🙂

  23. i wish i could get all of these for a gift stuff for my dad, sure he may like all but not all, some may be off his age fashion trend but sure good way to appreciate him and bring him back to his young old days memories. i like this.
