Father’s Day is just around the corner and, if you’re at a loss on what to buy for the dads in your life, know that you’re not alone. Men (especially dads) are traditionally really hard to gift! More often than not, you’re met with responses like “I don’t need anything,” “I don’t want anything,” or “You don’t have to get me anything!” To help you out, we’ve curated a list of some of our favorite surefire Father’s Day gift ideas he’ll be so happy you surprised him with in the long-run.
Father’s Day 2020 Gift Guide
Since we’re all going to be staying in and around the house most of the summer, ensure that your man is a grill master with this gorgeous and very serious wood pellet grill by Traeger. With over 400 square inches of cooking surface, this grill will have him covered from family burgers to backyard party spare ribs and known as the resident grill master in no time!
Every dad needs his throne, and what better one is there than an OG La-Z-Boy? This particular one is called the Maverick and is oversized so the kids, the dog, or even you can join him comfortably! Fair warning: It’s also made with AirForm memory foam, has two different memory settings, and a USB port for charging, so he may never leave once he sits down.
With so many devices nowadays, it seems like something is constantly in need of a charge. This portable powerhouse not only provides charge for typical things like phones, tablets, and laptops but can even jump a car, boat, mower, and more! Your hubby will be fully equipped to solve any charging problem and elevate his Mr. Fix It status tenfold. For under $100, this charger comes with jumper cables, micro USB charging cable, AC adapter, a 14V USB car charger, and carrying pouch!
We miss the days where dad always seemed to have his big, bulky VHS camcorder out to capture home videos. Luckily, there’s a much hipper, updated version in the GoPro. If your hubby doesn’t already have one, gift him one this Father’s Day so he can easily capture every crawl, hilarious moment, family trip, and everything in between!
If your backyard doesn’t have the room for a full grill, consider this handy and easily portable tabletop grill by Cuisinart. Your man can still be the grillmaster anywhere with this impressive piece of equipment. It has two stainless steel burners and 275 square inches of grilling space, so veggies, meat, and anything else he thinks of has plenty of room to thrive!
If he’s on a health kick or just naturally enjoys his smoothies and juices, a Vitamix could be the perfect gift. Although it’s known for those staples, the Vitamix is also capable of mixing up salad dressings, soups, and desserts—it truly knows no bounds. Your man will be a blending and mixing expert in no time with 13 blending functions (you might want to invest in some noise-cancelling headphones for yourself!).
Every head chef or sous chef needs a serious knife, and this one by ZWILLING will make him an expert prepper. Chopping, dicing, mincing, slicing—the high quality stainless steel will basically do all the work for him while making him look really good in the kitchen.
Whether he listens to the oldies, pop, country, hip-hop, or something so obscure you can’t categorize it, every guy needs a solid sound system. The Bose Soundlink Revolve Wireless Speaker System is the perfect middleground without having to invest in surround sound throughout the house. It has 360º sound quality and is portable, so he can bring it with him wherever he goes: the backyard, the front yard, the golf course, a friend’s house, etc! We have one in our bathroom and one in our kitchen!
If your man is a football fan, an NFL Vintage Throwback Leather Football is a great piece of decor for their office, man cave, etc. It’s classy and cool and shows their fandom without needing to over decorate with jerseys on jerseys!
Most of us are really bad about drinking enough water. If your hubby falls under this category, gift him a high-quality water bottle like the Hydro Flask to make drinking water second nature. This particular option is 32 oz. and has a wide mouth, so he can take big gulps and even throw in a few ice cubes. Plus, the insulation is serious and keeps things cold for hours.
Speaking of keeping drinks ice cold, if your man enjoys his beer, this insulated 3-in-1 can cooler set would be perfect for him during these hot summer months! It comes with a lid and an adapter to accommodate various can sizes and even a pint glass. He’ll be so thankful, and it won’t just be the beer talking either!
Give him the gift of watching the game in total peace and quiet with these Bose noise canceling headphones. They’re incredibly high-quality, offering a first-of-its-kind augmented reality audio system that uses motion sensors and location data to tailor your experience. Plus, it’s compatible with Alexa, Google, and Siri!
Comfort is key, and these joggers by Alo are perfect for lounging, moving, or even running quick errands. Even better, they’re water repellent which makes them ideal for any sort of weather conditions!
And why not add in a comfy, cool hoodie to make a complete loungewear outfit?! Off-White is an innovative and creative clothing line by fashion designer Virgil Abloh. An entrepreneur, artist, and DJ, Virgil has been the artistic director of Louis Vuitton’s men’s wear collection since March 2018. This hoodie is perfect for a husband who appreciates unique, fresh style.
This is what I bought Joe – I had to give it to him early so I could publish this, LOL.
If your man isn’t a hoodie guy, opt for this stainless steel water bottle. Fitted with a lanyard, it’s easily portable so he can have it on his person wherever he goes. Plus, the lightweight stainless steel keeps his liquid of choice chilled and the cool design is attention-grabbing.
Emily bought these for all the men in her life this year! We love that they are customizable. It’s an amazing gift for travel, or everyday use!
Another amazing custom gift – it’s the perfect addition to your bar cart and has such a great personal touch!
