Father’s Day is just around the corner and getting the perfect gift for dad can seem like a daunting task! Sure, you could always pick him up another tie or a “World’s Best Dad” mug, but why not get him something really unique he can use this year? After all, we’re talking about the guy who taught you how to tie your shoes, play catch and helped you score straight A’s on all those school projects over the years! Here are six awesome gifts ideas for the outdoor adventure dad, the DIY dad, the grill master dad and the tech-savvy dad (although we’re sure any dad would appreciate these gifts).
A subscription to a magazine such as Backpacker – $10 to $50
Here’s a gift that keeps coming every month. If your dad is the outdoors type and always looking for a new adventure, consider buying him a subscription to this wilderness hiking and survival publication.
Custom-made cowboy boots – $400+
Is your dad an urban cowboy, a workplace wrangler, or just a boot aficionado? Take him to your local boot and leather store for a custom-made pair of cowboy boots. He’ll love how unique and personalized this gift is.
Mini scrapbook of pictures with you and him – $20 + a few hours of your time
Here is a gift idea straight from the heart – and it’s perfect for those of us who are cash-strapped, too! Gather together all those Kodak moments and put them in a cute scrapbook for him to look through for years to come.
Fitbit – $49.95
For the sporty and tech-savvy dads – what could be better than a brand-new FitBit? This model will motivate dad to achieve his fitness goals by calculating steps taken, calories burned, elevation climbed and distance traveled throughout the day. He’ll definitely appreciate the sleek, low-profile display that tracks real-time progress. Talk about trendy!
Is your dad a grill master? Mom probably already gave him a “Kiss the Cook” apron, so why don’t you give him something he’ll really love – a personalized barbecue grilling set! Make dad feel like the next Bobby Flay with his own branded equipment.
Is your DIY dad always working on odd projects around the house? Help him keep his tools organized with a five-gallon bucket organizer! Added bonus: throw in a few new tools to really brighten his day.
