Today we’re going to be talking about Father’s Day gifts, because it’s just about that time of year again.
Hard to believe, right?
If you’re like a lot of people, sometimes it can seem difficult to shop for your dad. That’s because, well, you love your dad, and each year you strive to find that one special gift that you just know he’ll love… instead of the same old hair pomade, tie or gift card.
Not that there’s anything wrong with any of those items if that’s what your dad really likes!
But if you feel like you always come up short in the gift-giving arena (even though your dad always says he loves what you get him no matter what it is), take a look through these awesome gift ideas we’ve curated for you.
After all, if you have an awesome dad, you want to give him an awesome Father’s Day gift. That, if you’ll pardon the pun, is a given.
We’ve searched high and low on the interwebs to come up with this list featuring the best and most memorable Father’s Day gifts we could find. These are creative ideas perfect not only for your own dad, but for any other amazing fathers in your life that you want to recognize.
If that sounds good to you, let’s get started!
10 Best Father’s Day Gifts that He Will Love
1. Custom Engraved Wall-Mounted Bottle Opener
The best Dad ever deserves the best gift ever for Father’s Day. If your dad loves to kick back his feet with a cold one in hand after a long day, this wall-mounted bottle opener from Northwest Gifts will take the cake.
Our hand-crafted and personalized bottle opener comes ready to mount, and is custom engraved to read “Best Dad Ever” along with your father’s name and/or the names of his kids.

3. Tell Me Your Life Story, Dad
It can be hard to think of our fathers as individuals who once had a life before us, but it’s true.
Your dad was once a little boy, then a teenager, then a young adult. During those years he collected unforgettable memories that you probably know absolutely nothing about.
This Father’s Day, let him know that you want to know more about him and his life’s journey by gifting him this thoughtful memory book.
He can do the writing, or you can ask the questions from the book directly to your dad and fill in the answers yourself. Either way, your bond with him will be strengthened and you will have a record of your father’s legacy to pass down to your own children one day.
4. Restaurant Grade Propane Grill
Okay… a propane grill may seem like a stereotypical Father’s Day gift, we get it. But when it’s as awesome as this one, you may not be able to pass it up.
Here we have a restaurant-grade Blackstone grill with a removable flat-top instead of the typical grilling bars. This makes it so much easier for your dad to cook up (and clean up) whatever his heart desires, plus the griddle top gives him so many more options for cooking the perfect dishes!
The grill includes four adjustable stainless-steel burners as well as an electric start button.
5. Cigar Club Subscription
For the sophisticated Daddio, a cigar club subscription is just the thing! He’ll love having his old favorites at hand, and discovering new ones, with this classy subscription box. The idea Father’s Day gift for the modern gentleman!
6. First Father’s Day Together

He’ll love looking and feeling his best and will definitely want to plan a night out to show off his new duds (maybe he’ll invite you).
19. Bake Dad His Favorite Dessert
He couldn’t possibly say no to his favorite dessert. Like, this is DAD we’re talking about. And he’ll only love it that much more when it’s baked or crafted with love by you! Satisfy his sweet tooth and warm his heart all at the same time.
