Father’s Day Gift Ideas

Power Bank. Chances are your dad has a cell phone and other electronics that need constant charging. But does he always have the ability to plug them in? With a power bank, dad will be able to charge his electronics on the go. A similar option is to go with a solar power bank. These are especially great for road trips or if he is out hiking where outlets are few and far between.

Camping Gear. Does your dad love to camp or hike? If so, then buying some camping equipment might be a good idea. There are plenty of items to choose from. A camping hammock has become quite popular and is great for solo hiking trips. Another great idea is a pair of hiking poles.

LEGO Sets. Bring dad back to his childhood days with a LEGO set. There are so many to choose from that it should be easy to find one that suits dad’s tastes. Is he a Star Wars fan? Maybe he would love a Ghostbusters one. There are also LEGO Architecture sets.

DVD Sets. We live in an age of streaming videos, so a DVD set may seem odd. But think of the joy you can bring your dad when you gift him a series from his childhood. There is a large variety of series out there to choose from. Whether he loved Transformers, G.I. Joe, or Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, you are sure to find something.

Bluetooth Speaker. Maybe dad is a music lover. What better thing to gift dad than a device to play music? While there are many different devices to choose from, a Bluetooth speaker or Bluetooth headphones are ideal.

A Handmade Gift. Much as it is nice to go out and buy dad a gift. Sometimes the best gift of all is one that is handmade. What better way to show dad how much he means to you than a gift made using your own two hands and a generous helping of love? You could crochet him a hat or anything else that could be useful to him.

A Dad Box. Another homemade gift idea – at least partially. Maybe you would like to give dad a number of his favorites. Creating a Dad Box is the perfect solution. These boxes allow you to put his favorite snacks, drinks, DVDs, and other items all in one place. Most of all, it gives a good variety of items for dad to enjoy.

Gunnars. Need something for a video game-loving dad? You can always get him a newer-release video game. Because of all those hours staring at a screen, getting dad a pair of Gunnars glasses would be a good idea. These glasses cut down on eye strain and fatigue. There are plenty of styles to choose from.


  1. These are all great ideas! I love the Dad Box idea. I think my little one would have fun helping me with that. ?

    1. It definitely puts an interesting twist on a homemade gift. Since not everything included needs to be homemade or it can contain no homemade items at all.

  2. Some really good ideas on here! I know my husband always lives to receive things that remind him if his childhood!

    1. My husband also loves buying things that remind him of his childhood, and that’s what gave me the idea to include those things. Plus, you can’t go wrong with things like LEGO sets no matter the age of the person.

  3. Hey, some great ideas on here! Getting some new camping gear would be awesome!

    1. Camping gear is my go-to gift for my husband, which is why I included it here in the dad gift ideas. Lots of dads love to camp, whether with their families or by themselves.

  4. These are great ideas! We got my hubby a recliner. He hasn’t had one in ages or a new one ever. He picked it out and I picked a color that would compliment our couch! We ordered it just before Memorial Day, but it probably won’t be in before Father’s Day so I’ll have to come up with something for the kids to give him the day of.

    1. Thank you. Oh, that’s a great gift. I bet he will enjoy it once it does arrive.
