Though I have many years of practice, I still struggle with finding a gift for my Dad for Father’s Day. I just never know what to get! In case you’re like me, I’ve done my best to round up some gifts that (fingers crossed!) many Dads would enjoy.
First up – the gifts that you can’t really go wrong with. This duffle bag from L.L. Bean is so classic and will never be out of style, and can be used for travel or even as a gym bag. I’m including Bombas socks because they’ve become recent favorites of my Dad, and he’s requested more as gifts! They’re the perfect no-show but super comfortable sock… and a little bit of a splurge for a sock, so it’s a great gift option for the Dad who doesn’t want to spend money on himself. And then a Yeti tumbler is always a great gift – it fits in the cupholder of a car, seals so it doesn’t spill, and the insulation is amazing.
For gifts that are a little more tech-y, I think this Courant valet charging pad is something that’s useful for charging a phone and being a catchall for keys, etc. but will also look nice sitting out. And if you’re looking for a higher-end gift, a portable Bose speaker is the perfect way to bring music with you no matter where you are in or out of the house – we love to take ours out onto the deck and patio.
My dad loves to grill. We got him this Meater thermometer last year for Father’s Day, and it was a big hit! It lets you wirelessly check the temperature of whatever you’re cooking from your phone, so you don’t have to constantly watch (it works in a smoker, too!). And these clip-on grill lights just seem cool – an easy way to add some light if you’re grilling after sunset.
Finally… the gifts that are fun or sentimental. This Kubb yard game seems like a fun alternative to Cornhole! And I love this personalized family portrait – you can customize the number of kids/adults and what they look like. A sweet and sentimental gift!
