Last Father’s Day, Chris was daydreaming about being able to spend the day doing exactly what he loves doing in his future outdoor kitchen. Well, this year, I think he’s pretty excited to make that vision come true.

Shop Father’s Day Gift Ideas

We came up with a selection of thoughtful Father’s Day gifts that are sure to make any Dad happy on his special day. So whether you’re shopping for your partner, a father, or a grandfather, I hope you find something for the father figures in your life.

Gift these to any dad who’s always looking to up their protein! Chris is recently obsessed with these protein pastries, including the wild berry flavor too.

I don’t know a single dad who wouldn’t love a classic baseball cap. This one has a perforated, breathable lining to cut down on sweat! It also comes in a variety of colors, but I’m a big fan of this Merlot color.

Every dad needs a self-care moment, and the reviews on this scalp serum have me sold. “Infused with a powerful blend of multiple amino acids and peptides to help detox follicle buildup, support thicker hair, and encourage overall scalp health.”

Every DIYer and project doer will thank you immensely for this tool. We use it for nearly every home project we do.

5. AirFly Pro $54

This little device is incredibly genius. If you have wireless headphones and want to be able to watch something on your flight, plug this little guy into the headphone jack, and connect using Bluetooth. No more borrowing those disposable headphones they pass out on flights.

We love a good double-take. This band looks so much like the new Apple Watch Ultra at a fraction of the price.

Every grill guy needs a great tool set, and this one makes the cut on both quality and aesthetics.

Pickleball is all the rage these days, and supposedly dads especially love it. This looks like a really great starter set.

These “fire-on-the-go” travel sauces would make the perfect gift, and Chris gives his stamp of approval on this brand, which should say a lot.

This was on our Gift Guide for Him. A recliner-camping-chair-in-one is all I need to be convinced to go camping. He’ll take it camping, to the parade, perch it out by the driveway, or in the backyard to watch the stars with you.

This is THE men’s belt everyone has been talking about. It has over 17,000 5-star reviews on Amazon–ordering this for Chris!

If you want to blow him away with an incredibly comfy and stylish button-up, get this and thank me later.

This portable golf mat is perfectly portable and convenient for practicing his chipping at home or at work.

This is the up-and-coming water bottle. Funny enough, Chris actually got it back in 2021 and loves it (more than Stanley). Early to the game!

15. Grill Brush $49

If he’s cleaning the grill with anything but this brush, he’s going to be blown away by how much better this is. I promise.

For beards, noses, ears, nails, and more–every man needs a grooming kit that covers all their bases.

There was a 10-year-period where everyone (including me) was doing black or almost-black rooms or walls. These days, we want something moody and romantic, but we want warmth back in our lives. We want the “grown-up” version of that look. If you are craving a rich, moody paint color that’s a warm, inviting neutral, then […]
