Father’s Day is right around the corner and it’s a day I always have the hardest time with. I love my dad so much, but it’s tough because he just generally gets himself things that he wants. So I pay really close attention to things he mentions and also just spend time thinking about things he might like. If you are stumped on what to get the dad in your life, I hope this list of five fun Father’s Day gift ideas will be helpful! this post contains affiliate links
- Pump up his fitness! My dad used to run a lot (in fact, he was my very first running buddy) and he was super fast (like a ten miler in an hour kind of fast). Nowadays he hits the gym but doesn’t run like he used to. This Garmin Vivosmart tracker could help encourage him to get his steps in as he goes through his day!
- Photos are always a winner! I may or may not be getting my dad a picture of us from my wedding for him to put on his desk at work (luckily, dad doesn’t read the blog!). A few years ago, I gave him the most adorable photo I’d found of us from when I was about 3. It was pretty dang precious if I can say so myself.

- Anything that involves time with dad is always a good idea. If he’s into golfing, that could be green fees or a lesson. If he likes food (who doesn’t??), take him to your favorite restaurant. He probably feels like he doesn’t get enough time with you. He’s right.
- Is your dad pretty fashionable? Or at least would you like him to be? I used to always buy my dad a nice shirt each year and it always makes me so happy to see him wear the clothes I’ve bought him. Bonobos is having a pretty excellent spring sale right now and I think my dad would like a couple of those button down shirts. The bright pants he’d never do, though. 🙂
- Books! My dad is a big reader (as am I) and so I’m always on the hunt for books he might think are interesting. He is interested in so many things, so the trick is buying him a book he hasn’t already read!
- Bonus: if you have kids, obvi, having them make something adorable for dad is the way to go! If you’re stumped, here’s a great collection of homemade Father’s Day gifts I found on Pinterest.
