With Father’s Day fast approaching on Sunday, June 21st, the thought of Father’s Day gifts is fresh in most of our heads.  For me dads are so much harder to shop for so I’ve done a lot of research and found some great gifts for the number one guy in your life, Dad!

1. Personalized Jewelry (Necklaces, Key Chains, Wallet Clips)

SHINElife is my go to for gifts now-a-days. Hilary, the owner, has a brand that all will love. My personal favorite for the daddies out there is the Silver Daddy Name Necklace/Bar Necklace. You can personalize this necklace for dad. It’s the perfect gift for the dads that love jewelry. And while you’re ordering she has an adorable personalized “Call Me Daddy” shirt that’s perfect for the finishing touch on Dad’s gift. 

2. Watches, Ties, Cologne and so much more

Nordstrom is my life saver! First off, let’s just say gifts from Nordstrom are great for the dad that likes to be stylish or is a “business” dad. From colognes, watches, wallets, ties, coffee mugs, polos, and shoes (oh and so much more) with prices ranging from under $50. You’re definitely going to find a great gift for the dads in your life! You could just grab a few miscellaneous items like ties, a watch and a grooming kit. For any dad you are going to find a great gift. 

3. Etsy.com gifts! T-shirts, wallets, coffee mugs, oh my! Here is a list of some great shops to shop at for Father’s Day gifts.

SwankyBadgerDesign - Personalized Men’s Leather Wallet $34.99 (LOVE!) Perfect for every dad and the gift means more when personalized.

LiveLoveTees - Dad t-shirts for $14.95 and Up! So cute and simple and something every dad can rock!

zoeysattic - I love this idea. Dad isn’t the only one getting a cool gift! The kids get to rock their matching shirts with dad! (I don’t know about you but I love matching my kids and now I get to match my husband too!!) I thought Zoey's Attic had some adorable and affordable matching daddy tees. 

rosebudchocolates - I don’t know about you but my dad loves chocolates!  (Bonus- I always get offered some too.) Rosebud has amazing mouth watering chocolates with a twist, an Oreo twist that is. They have so many options for what you can put on the chocolates for decorating to personalize it a little bit more!

LoveInTheCityShop - Coffee mugs for the dads and papas that drink coffee or tea. I love mugs! I love funny mugs, and I love meaningful mugs. You can’t have enough mugs! I like Love in the City because they are COLORFUL and CUTE! Every dad is a superhero too!

4. Photo Gifts

Oh how I adore the gift of a photo for any occasion. I don’t think that anyone can have enough canvases or frames. Photos are memories that we can cherish forever.  Photobarn has great products that fit every dad’s style.  My personal favorite is the $5 photocubes & photoblocks.

These cubes/blocks are just the right size to keep in Dad’s office or work space, or to take along if Dad travels or even to leave on the coffee table or shelves for great decor. My second favorite would be the photoboards. I love the style. The texture of the photos look great and can go anywhere you want to hang them, they spice up any wall. This is a must have gift for dads or grandpas too!

5. Omaha Steaks

Can we say mouth watering?! For the grill master this is the gift! Omaha Steaks offers such a variety of packages and some include full meals! From filets to desserts Omaha has it and at the price you want. Dad will be drooling over this gift. 

6. DIY Father’s Day Gift Basket

I love this DIY idea! Any basket can be customized to your dad’s style! One idea I saw was from A Girl in Paradise blog.  

I loved her idea with the spices and the utensils and the burger stuffer. A few other ideas would be a “FORE The Worlds Best Dad" golf bucket - fill it with golf balls, a new glove, tees, Gatorade or Beer (depending on his preference), peanut mix, beef jerky, gum, and his favorite candy. A "Sweets Basket" full of his favorite sweets is another basket idea and maybe put a gift card in for the movie theater.  For a new dad I love the “New Daddy Toolbox,” with all the supplies you need in one handy basket/toolbox/bucket (your preference).  Some things you could put in it are Advil/Tylenol (for adults and kids), pacifiers, wipes (boogie wipe and regular), baby toy, a bib that has something about daddy on it or a onesie, diaper cream, hand sanitizer, and diapers. Then there is the funny stuff… goggles, thongs, and clothes pins (hahaha, I did a mask instead for my basket). The last basket I thought of is for the “Sports Loving Dad.” Find a bucket with the team on it or general sports bucket, get Slim Jims, sunflower seeds, his favorite team's hat and shirt, Gatorade or beer, a ball (if he loves baseball get a baseball, football a football, etc), a koozie, sunscreen, and to top it off his favorite chips.

This list should get you started for Father's Day shopping. I’m sure you will be able to pick out the best fit for your dad, grandpa, husband or dad to be. (Don’t forget about uncles and godfathers!) Happy Father’s Day to all the daddies and dads to be! Dads truly are superheroes!
