8 Great Gift Ideas For Father's Day

8 Great Gift Ideas For Father's Day

By Bailey_Swilley

D-Day is coming up! No, not that D-Day, but the one that celebrates your good ol' dad! Since dads are notoriously difficult to shop for, we're here to help you out. Try these gift ideas if you're looking to show your pops some love on Sunday.

If your daddy-o is a homebody...
Does your dad love to hang at home? Maybe you guys have monthly movie nights or make dinner together (or, you know, simply cohabitate relatively peacefully in the same space). Help him make the pad more father-friendly with some Man Candles from Uncommon Goods! With dude-friendly scents like pizza, sawdust, and grass, he'll appreciate your efforts to make it smell more masculine around the place.

If your papa is great at helping with science homework...
Consider a galaxy-themed tie for the guy who makes you feel like a star! This clip-on tie from Etsy will make dad feel fun, festive, and most of all, loved!

If dad is a TV fan...

Get him a nice pillow to sit back on when he watches his favorite shows. Check out these Game of Thrones and  Mad Men versions, both from Society6.

Is your faja a foodie?
Check out the new Fred & Friends Prime Cuts serving board. Hooray! Dad will be able to serve his family and friends on something other than his wedding china from the Stone Age!

Is daddy a fashionista?
Pick up this two-tone straw fedora from Old Navy! It'll look great at summer BBQs and on days at the zoo. Speaking of BBQ, check out this pair of grilling-themed socks, also at Old Navy.

Does your patriarch have a green thumb?

Remind your father of how much you appreciate his hard work in the yard with this Power Planter from Perpetual Kid that he can keep on his desk at work. It comes with a seed kit so he can plant gorgeous, tall grass to green his work life.

Is daddy-o a techie?
Slap this astronaut laptop skin from Society6 onto Pop's beloved computer for the ultimate protection from the non-digital world—and for a super-sleek geek look.

Does your padre love sports?
Get him this ticket stub diary so he can store all his sporting event tix. It's a great way for Dad to store memories without having to scrapbook or make a million Facebook albums.

What are you doing for your dad on Father's Day?
