If you’ve ever asked your dad what he wanted for Father’s Day, chances are he responded with something like, “Oh, I don’t need anything.” While that might be true, you still want to do something to show the dad in your life how much you appreciate him. After all, dads are important people in our lives!
Father’s Day is Sunday, June 16. Put down the tie, socks, and coffee mug—he doesn’t need any more—and surprise him with one of these Father’s Day gift ideas!
1. A Delicious Meal
Whether you deliver dad breakfast in bed complete with a stack of fluffy pancakes or his favorite pot roast dinner, a delicious homecooked meal is something he’s sure to appreciate. Plus, it gives the whole family a chance to pitch in.
2. An Electric Smoker
There’s nothing quite as delicious as a perfectly smoked piece of brisket or salmon, but if you’ve ever smoked meat yourself, you know it’s a labor of love. Smoking requires charcoal, wood, and lots of time. An electric smoker makes it so much easier.
Whether dad is new to meat smoking or is a champion grill master, he’ll love using an electric smoker that produces great-tasting smoked foods, minus the mess and time commitment. Char-Broil has a few affordable electric smokers that make smoking a piece of cake—err, steak!
3. Lawn Games
If dad likes to spend time outside, hook him up with a bocce ball, ladder golf or corn hole set. It’s something the whole family can use, and the perfect addition to any backyard barbecue.
4. A Bluetooth Speaker
Whether he’s grilling on the back porch, working in the garage or out on the lake, a portable Bluetooth speaker is a perfect accessory and a great Father’s Day gift idea. Dad can take the JBL Flip 4 wherever he goes. It’s sturdy, waterproof, and produces a remarkably powerful sound.
5. A YETI Cooler
The YETI brand seems to be taking the world by storm, and it really is worth the hype! Their coolers and drinkware keep cold things cold and hot things hot. YETI’s ultra-durable hard coolers are a splurge, so split the cost among your family for a great gift he can use time and time again. Camping and fishing trips, tailgates, the backyard—just think of all the places he’ll be able to use it! The YETI drinkware line offers more affordable options, including tumblers, mugs, and bottles.
6. A Great Cup of Coffee
Does your dad always start his day with a fresh cup of Joe? Treat him to a bag of locally roasted coffee beans and an electric coffee grinder—his new secret weapon in the quest for the perfect cup of coffee. It’s the kind of Father’s Day gift he’ll use day after day, and he’ll have you to thank every time he has a sip of his morning pick-me-up!
7. Do Something Nice for Dad
It’s the little things that make the most impact, and the best Father’s Day gift ideas are the ones that are free! If there’s a chore or task that’s typically his responsibility, why not take it off his plate for the day? Mow the lawn, wash his car, pick up around the house or do anything else to make his life a little easier.
8. Spend Time Together
One of the best Father’s Day gifts you can give is just to spend time together. Instead of searching for the perfect present, play a round of golf (or mini-golf) at his favorite course, hit the batting cages, go fishing or tackle a project around the house together.
Now that you’ve got some fresh Father’s Day gift ideas, you can take the ties, socks, and coffee mugs out of your gift-giving rotation. How do you plan on celebrating Father’s Day this year?
