Father and son embraced facing valley.

[Updated on 6.7.2022] Finding the right gift for the father figure in your life can be a tricky endeavor. It's a little like solving an equation or a puzzle - it may take some critical thinking, trial and error, and in the case of dads...a little mind-reading. Honing in on his interests and hobbies is a great place to start! 

Once you've got a good idea of how your dad likes to spend his time, it's time to start searching for that perfect gift! But don't let the process overwhelm you - we've done some of the leg work and compiled a list of over 25 of our favorite tech gadgets, grilling accessories, outdoor gear, and more for you to consider while shopping for Dad.  Whether his ideal Saturday is a day on the lake, a backyard barbecue with friends and family, checking out the newest home tech drop, or at a tailgate with the guys, we've got something to celebrate.  (Don't worry, we've even covered the dads who'd rather be at the comic convention.) Keep reading to check out what we've curated below, and happy shopping! And don't forget - Father's Day is coming up quickly on Sunday, June 19th!

A smartwatch to fit his needs

You can even choose the watch based around his lifestyle choices, like a FItBit for the active dad, or the newest Premium Apple Watch for dads all about the newest tech. We've chosen the Apple Watch SE - a midline watch with a variety of features that's easily customizable and won't break the bank.

If your dad is the outdoorsy type, you can never go wrong with gifting a new pair of hiking boots.  Making sure that he stays comfortable and safe in a boot that’s built to last will let him know you care about him and his hobbies. We chose a great boot from Timberland that are made from full-grain leather with a rubber outsole making them waterproof and durable for all types of terrain.

While we’re on the topic of keeping dad organized, another can’t-go-wrong gift idea for the busy office dad is a desk organizer.  Our pick has a compartmented shelf in the bottom for all of his loose pens, paperclips, sticky notes, and replacement staples.  It also includes a letter tray and stacking sorter section on the top, so dad finally has a central place at his desk for everything he needs throughout the day.

Office dad, meet techie dad (but let’s be honest, there’s probably a lot of natural overlap there). Help dad stay focused and jam out while working with a pair of noise-canceling headphones by Bose.  These wireless headphones offer three levels of noise cancellation, come equipped with Amazon Alexa, and have a battery life of up to 20 hours so your dad can use them all day.

A classic Father’s Day gift, this set of 9 gray whiskey rocks is a gift that any Dad who enjoys a cold drink will enjoy.  This is a great gift option that Dad will appreciate without breaking the bank.

Another classic gift option is dad swag - items proclaiming your dad’s obvious status as THE best dad ever. We chose a mug, but realistically this could also be a T-shirt, ball cap, backpack, or any piece of merchandise that screams to the world that you've got the #1 Dad.

If you still aren't sure what to get your dad on Father's Day, you can never go wrong with a gift card to one of his favorite places or for one of his favorite activities - or to use however he wants! This way, dad will still feel celebrated and appreciated on Father's Day without the guilt of pretending to like whatever else you were going to get him. 

We hope there’s something on this list that caught your eye as the perfect gift this Father’s Day!  You can always never go wrong with a heart-felt card or even taking your dad out for a meal, hike, boat tour, or other experience if none of the physical gifts above suit your style.  No matter what path you choose to take, remember that Father’s Day is coming up quicker than you might think!
