Father's Day Gift Guide: Find the Best Present for Any Type of Dads

That time of year is approaching: the time of year when we finally look up and realize that we’ve got to celebrate the patriarchs!


Yup--Father’s Day.


For me, Father’s Day is an even more daunting holiday than Mother’s Day or Christmas. I’m WAY too old to rely on macaroni ties--plus, as my dad has every other gift known to man. Finding unique things is hard to do for someone with a vast wardrobe and a keen taste for electronics!

I have a feeling I’m not alone on this. That’s why I’m putting together the ultimate gift guide for Father’s Day--it’ll be sure to please every type of dad!


For the Sports Buff

Personalized Washington Post Team Book

This amazing keepsake book is great if your dad is a fan of a particular football team. He’ll love that it’s personalized, and he’ll love looking back at his team’s greatest moments. Check it out at Personalization Universe.


Sausage and Cheese Football Board

If your dad loves hosting football watch parties with his friends, gift him this amazing board from 1800Flowers. It comes with all the tools he’ll need to cut into his favorite meats and cheeses. He’s sure to love it--and use it whenever he watches a game! Bonus--it even comes with some gourmet Lucca and Sons treats! 


Golf Bag Cooler

This adorable golf bag cooler from Cheryl’s is a wonderful gift for golfers and golf watchers alike! It’s packed with baked goodies like crunchy chocolate chip and sugar cookies--and as an extra surprise, it includes real golf balls and tees!


For the Foodie (with a Sweet Tooth)

Father's Day Cheesecake Pops

My dad definitely loves good food--and good dessert. These wonderful cheesecake pops would be perfect for him! They’re hand-decorated for added flair, and taste decadent and delicious. Check them out at Harry and David!


Superhero Dad Tin

If your dad’s anything like mine, he loves all kinds of cookies! Cheryl’s has the perfect gift with these customizable tins! You can pack them with all of your dad’s favorite flavors for a package that he won’t want to share!


Summer Snack Crate

This gourmet snack box from Harry and David is so perfect, you might not want to give it away! It’s packed with sausages, cheeses, and dessert treats! It’s great for snacking during movie nights or game nights. The only problem: your dad won’t want to share this gift, and neither will you!


For the Man Who Appreciates a Good Drink

Personalized Mini Whiskey Barrel

Harry and David nailed it with this mini whiskey barrel. Not only is it a great personalized showpiece, but it is actually functional! It can be used to age your dad’s favorite wine or liquor! Pick one up and he’ll be floored!  


Beer Can Glasses

These cute glasses from 1800Flowers are sure to be your dad’s new favorite beer glasses! They’re shaped like beer cans, and emblazoned with an adorable and customizable “brewing company” label!


Personalized Photo Stein

There’s no way your dad won’t love this photo stein from Personalization Universe! Put in your favorite photo of you with your parents, you with your siblings, or just your dad--he’ll be honored to show this off!


For the Man About Appearances

Plaid Tie Gift Box

If your dad is a tie collector, go ahead and get him a new one for his collection: this Popcorn Factory gift box is one that he definitely doesn’t have! Plus, it does what other ties can’t: it opens to reveal delicious treats!


Shaving Essentials Gift Set

Pick up this shaving essentials kit from 1800Flowers for the man that is meticulous about his shaving. It includes all of the luxurious essentials that he’ll need to make sure that his facial hair is just as he likes it!


Gun Metal Pocket Watch

This fashion-forward pocket watch is super trendy! Your dad might think that pocket watches are old-school, but we (and Personalization Universe) know better! They’re definitely making a comeback, so make sure that your dad is on trend!


For the Joker

Money Soap

If your dad says something like “all I need for Father’s Day is money,” do him one better: get him this money soap from 1800Flowers. As the soap dissolves, it will reveal some money! The amount can be anything from $1 to $50. He’ll definitely have a good laugh with this gift!


Sports Car Gift Box

Everyone loves a new car! Tease your dad a little with a brand-new “sports car” from The Popcorn Factory! He might not be able to drive it, but it will make him smile, and he’ll love that it comes with treats!


Bacon Lover's Box

Bacon-lovers rejoice! Rather than getting your dad a gag-gift of bacon, get him this cute box of bacon-flavored treats! This box from The Popcorn Factory is filled with delightful treats that will remind your dad of bacon, without all that extra saturated fat!
