Father’s Day is always the hardest, isn’t it? Mugs, beer steins, grilling goods, wallets, sock, T-shirts – he already has plenty of those and doesn’t it all create more work for Mom (or Dad) because those are items need to be washed, etc. Let’s think next level for Dad this year, what can he use that will bring him joy and be functional? That was my goal for this list and I also mixed in some crafty ideas as well!
Before we go into this list, don’t forget about the other kinds of gifts – experiences, gift cards, etc!
- Gift card to his favorite shop.
- A night at the casino.
- Take a workshop together.
- Plan a hike or picnic.
- A special cooked meal.
- A handmade greeting card with a “thank you , Dad” letter inside.
The list – I linked a lot of these to Amazon, but you can also check with your local book and gift shops to support small business!
This is such a nice find for any kind dad, it has the vibe of a professor, an explorer, a seeker of truth! But when you open it, you have a standard carrying case for a laptop, tablet, notebook, maybe even a game to play with the kids. It has an adjustable strap and plenty of pockets inside for treasures. $79.99.
Dads need candles too! Galeana 39 is a brand by my friend, Curtis, and he has impeccable taste and style. He creates beautifully scented soy candles that smell as gorgeous as they look. This one has a masculine spirit with its onyx jar and grey-toned label. The aroma is a combo of amber, sandalwood and berry. Just the right blend of texture and sweetness, just like Dad! $25.
Know of a dad-to-be? Maybe they need a little pep talk to calm their nerves for the big arrival. This book is beloved because it covers labor and delivery, supporting a partner, and early childhood development. The more you know, right?
If you know, you know! This suitcase set is for the dad who loves him some Star Wars! Doesn’t the embossed look create so much mystery?
This is sooo cool! Dad is featured as a superhero comic book hero. For $40, you can have Uncommon Goods customize the comic with a name of your choice. I think this would be so cute to read together as a family!
This is amazing, right? It holds a 12 or 16 ounces and and keeps it chilly cool – or you can use it as a tumbler and simply pour in the drink. All that manly shimmer is $24.
This charging station has a spot for all of dad’s devices, so he’ll always be ready to go!
Brickell Men’s Daily Essential Face Moisturizer for Men, Natural and Organic Fast-Absorbing Face Lotion
Because men need face moisturizers too! This is a well-loved brand with great reviews. It doesn’t take much to apply it, no muss, no fuss! Hydrates, nourishes, renews, and protects without clogging pores, works for all skin types. $35.
Okay, I know this one is a bit pricey at $219, but if you have a music lover dad, he’ll dig this! And it’s portable, so he can take it with him to the game, fishing, or just chillin’ in the backyard.
Crocs for Dad? Well, they are comfy and rather than go with the classic clog version, try these slides for dad! $29.99
Hope these Father’s Day Gift and Craft Ideas will help you find the perfect present for your dad, or a dad-like figure!Love & light,
