Father’s Day Gift Ideas

Father’s Day is a great excuse to buy that one gift for Dad that he will treasure for years to come. To celebrate one of the most important men in your life, here are father’s day gift ideas that will be a sure hit even to the most discerning of dads.

For the Outdoorsy Dad
This dad lives an active life. If he likes to go on hikes and picnics, buy him a handy cooler such as the Otter Box cooler or the Yeti Tundra Roadie. These coolers are tough, durable, and sealed well to prevent leaks. The Otter Box has water-resistant pockets that makes it easy to access food and drinks, while the Yeti Tundra is roomy enough to hold drinks for a thirsty group.So if your outdoorsy dad is a sporty dad as well, this is one of the best Father’s Day gift ideas that he will love.

For the Handy Dad
Fill your dad’s toolbelt this Father’s Day with a multitool such as the Leatherman Wave Plus. There are other brands like it but he will appreciate this handy addition to his collection that features 17 different foldaway tools, including a can opener, scissors, a wire cutter, a file, and pliers. This is a practical do-it-all tool Dad will be glad to whip out for those at-home fix-its.

For the Foodie Dad
Make dad’s day a flavorful one with a bouquet – a food bouquet. Many food shops and producers offer a set arrangement of their best products for their customers to enjoy. If your dad loves salami, gift him with a salami bouquet from Olympia Provisions, for example. They offer a set of 3 or 6 sausages that includes French, Spanish, and Italian flavors. The sausages are individually wrapped and tied together in paper and ribbon for easy gift-giving.

For the Active Dad
Dad needs a handy bag to carry his stuff to the gym. Why not a utility duffel bag that also doubles as a small weekender bag for those short trips? Take a look at a canvas and leather duffle bag, for example. Made with tough fabric and a nice crosshatch design, it features a detachable shoulder strap to make a nice hand-carried bag that can store necessities when necessary.

For the New Dad
For the guy who is celebrating his first Father’s Day, a baby gift hamper makes a thoughtful token. A baby hamper has everything that a dad needs to take care of the newest addition to the family, from comfy onesies to bibs to baby’s first teddy bear. Many companies, such as the Potter Barn, Nordstrom, and Stork Baby, offer wonderful combinations of baby must-haves. Some even allow you to choose the gifts you like for a more customized approach.
