Snack Boxes, Tools, and More Father’s Day Gift Ideas

Families around the United States will celebrate Father’s Day on June 21. It’s a day dedicated to paying tribute to dads of all kinds, celebrating them for their hard work and devotion to raising their children well.

Like most American holidays, there’s a gift-giving component. Finding the perfect gift is enough to stress anyone out. You don’t want to get dad something he may hate, and some dads are tough nuts to crack when it comes to finding things they actually want. The strong, silent type of dad never expresses his special interests or shares his wish lists! Then there’s the dad who’s very vocal about things he wants. And the one that is picky and particular about everything. And don’t forget about the classic dad who gets a kick out of dry humor and always wears white sneakers.

To make it a little easier for you, we’ve assembled the ultimate compendium of ideas for Father’s Day gifts. Yell, “Happy Father’s Day, Pops!” and hand him one of these awesome items.

Gifts for Sporty Dads

Dads who dig physical activities and sports love things like memorabilia from their favorite teams, jerseys, and collectibles. Consider gifts like:

  • Autographed balls or hats
  • Rare baseball cards
  • Novelty socks featuring their favorite sports team’s logo
  • The promise of tickets to an upcoming sporting event (or the physical tickets if professional sports are happening in your area)
  • Replica of their favorite player’s jersey
  • Sporting goods, if they still play a sport


Father’s Day Gifts for Dad Dads

These are the dads who you can’t imagine being anything other than your dad. When people think of a dad, they think of yours. Consider gifts like:

  • Grilling tools or spices
  • T-shirts with puns or jokes on them
  • World’s Best Dad coffee mug or ball cap
  • Fresh white sneakers (he can use his old pair for mowing the lawn)
  • Passes to a BBQ festival or chili cookoff
  • A new, framed photo of all of his kids (bonus points if you re-enact an old picture!)
