Although the dads and father figures in our lives can be tricky to shop for, I always look forward to celebrating them and finding something meaningful or fun to gift them. Start with tapping into their hobbies and interests and grabbing them an item they might not get themselves. Whether you’re looking for a little something to surprise them with or a classic gift they’ll love for years, I’ve put together a list to get you started.
This heirloom leather volume of Ernest Hemingway’s The Old Man and the Sea is a specially bound collection item. It looks beautiful on an office shelf or desk and includes a stunning illustrated cover. These vintage-inspired heritage boxing gloves also make a beautiful addition to office decor, or can be used practically for training in the ring. Handcrafted in small batches, the artisan gloves are durable and come in a stunning cream or brown leather.
An easy way to spoil dad is to refresh a piece of his wardrobe. A comfortable but elevated knit sweater can carry him through the summer into the fall, and a pair of white sneakers or everyday shorts that can be dressed up or down are summer staples he’ll love. If you’re not sure about sizing, a timeless baseball cap with a vintage vibe or a pair of sunnies is perfect.
For dads that enjoy the outdoors, this cooler is a modern take on the iconic Coleman. Big enough to hold all your camping goods or tailgating snacks, the cooler is easily portable, durable, and includes the fun detail of a bottle opener on the side. Campfire skewers are a great idea for camping trips or setting up a fire in the backyard.
Nothing beats a burger on a charcoal grill when the weather is warm. When it’s time to break out the summer gear, this grill is incredibly built with helpful features.
Luxe toiletry items are smart gift ideas where you can treat your dad to a new item or pick up something he already loves. Cologne or a hair polish are great options.
Enjoy spending time with and celebrating the amazing dads in your life!
