Father’s Day is just around the corner! If you’re looking for gifts for the special dads in your life, check out this guide. I’ve got ideas for all kinds of dads: New Dads, Techy Dads, Fashion-Forward Dads, Outdoorsy Dads, Weekend Warriors and Foodie Dads. There are also options here at all price points, including a dedicated under $20 list. Happy Shopping!
Father’s Day for The New Dad
Give the new dad a hand! He can take the new baby on a hike with the Chicco SmartSupport Backpack Carrier, and be fashionably prepared for whatever comes his way with the OLIDAY Diaper Bag Backpack or the equally fashionable MAXTOP Large Fanny Pack. After several late-night feeding sessions, he and mom can share a cup of joe using their new Keurig K-Classic Coffee Maker. Anything to make a new dad’s life a little bit easier, right?
The Tech Geek
Personally, this is right up my husband’s alley. He is a software developer and builds his own computers for fun. If the dad in your life is always attached to his technology or up on the latest trends, gift him this Matein Travel Laptop Backpack, so that he can commute to work in style. A multifunctional watch, like this Fossil Gen 5 Smartwatch, so that he can take calls, adjust the volume of his music and keep the time all on the same device. If he works on the computer for a living, check out these Livho 2-Pack Blue Light Glasses, as well, to protect his eyes from the glare of the screen. When he gets home, this SENDOWTEK Bamboo Charger Station will organize all of his tech gear as they charge.
The Fashionable Dad
Every pop looks good in a stylish shoe, like this Polo Ralph Lauren Faxon Sneaker that will elevate his jeans-and-tee street style. For the dad that loves designer clothing, gift him these Versace 2-Pack Logo Trunks, which ring in at under $100! Oh, and check out this handy Herschel Chapter Dopp Kit to fashionably store his toiletries while he travels. And what dad wouldn’t look sensational in a pair of Ray-Ban Gradient Square Sunglasses?
The Outdoorsy Dad
For this great explorer of the outdoors, give him something fuss-free that is built to last, like these LL Bean Men’s Water Resistant Cresta Hiking Pants. Pair those pants with these highly-rated Merrell Men’s Moab 2 Vent Hiking Shoes for a complete look! Tack on this Teton Sports Oasis Hydration Pack, if he is one to take long wilderness excursions. If he’s the type to be out in the sun, this Columbia Men’s Terminal Tackle Long Sleeve Shirt has sun protection built-in to keep him protected from the UV rays.
The Weekend Warrior
This weekend warrior is the dad that spends his free time in the home improvement store. You know who I’m talking about. Make his landscaping life easier and invest in this John Deere Riding Lawn Mower. Elevate his grilling prowess with this Weber Genesis 3-Burner Gas Grill, or give him thisRyobi Six-Tool Combo Kit that will allow him to easily build, repair and cross off everything on his honey-do list. When he’s all done tinkering in his workshop (read: garage), he can use this 12 Gallon Wet/Dry Shop Vac to clean up his mess.
The Chef Dad
Last, but not least, let’s not forget the Chef Dad. He loves to spend hours in the kitchen perfecting his latest recipes for the family to try. In the mornings, he can treat himself to a homemade Espresso using this DeLonghi Espresso and Cappuccino Machine, and enjoy it in these Solem Double Wall Espresso mugs. For dinner prep, he can throw on this adorable World’s Best Chef Apron. Then he can throw down in the kitchen with this professional Zwilling Kanren 2-Piece Prep Set. This two piece set is way more affordable than getting an entire professional knife set. If you want to make the investment, however, check out my Shopstyle widget below for some options!
Father’s Day Gifts Under $20
All of these Father’s Day Gifts are under $20 for those of us who are budget-minded. I found something for every dad:
Let the Weekend Warrior Dad pop open a beer after a long day’s work with this Father’s Day Bottle Opener. This Papa Bear Shirt would be perfect for the Outdoorsy Dad, and this inexpensive 3 Piece BBQ Tool Set would make a great gift for the Chef Dad. Warm the New Dad’s heart with this I Love Dad with the Very Hungry Caterpillar book for him to read to the little one. Treat the Fashionable Dad to these Men’s Novelty Polka Dot Socks (2-pk), and check out this PopSockets Cell Phone Grip for the Techy Dad to keep him from dropping his phone when his hands are full.
I hope you were able to find something here that would make a great Father’s Day gift for the dads in your life, and if not, hopefully these ideas inspire you to come up with your own.
