Simple and Thoughtful Father’s Day Gift Ideas for the Dads in Your Life

Father’s Day is almost here… do you have a gift for all of the dads in your life? If not, no worries — there are plenty of last-minute gift ideas you can choose from. Whether it’s your dad, grandpa, husband, or any other father-figure in your life, it’s important to choose a gift that represents who they are and shows you know what they like. To help you think of some ideas, we’ve compiled a few gift ideas for dads with certain interests.

For the Wine-Lover

It’s no secret that a lot of people love wine — especially seeing as how there were 949 million gallons of wine consumed in the U.S. in 2016 alone. So if you’re looking for a gift for someone who loves to kick back with a nice glass of wine, there are plenty of gift options to consider. First, you can never go wrong with glassware. It can be intimidating to choose a bottle of wine as a gift, especially if you don’t drink wine yourself. This is why glassware is so great — it shows that you know they like wine, but you don’t have to worry about getting the wrong kind of wine. Wine glasses, decanters, and even wine stoppers are great options for wine-lovers. If you’re looking for something other than glassware, you can always go with bottle coolers or sleeves. These are especially great gifts right now with the hot weather here, and the gift receiver is sure to appreciate being able to keep their wine cool. And lastly, if you’re looking for more of a DIY gift, you may want to consider making some sort of wine storage holder. With some recycled materials, like wood or PVC pipes, you can easily make a personalized wine bottle holder that any man in your life is sure to love.

For the Dad With a Sweet Tooth

Any holiday calls for some sort of sweets. While it’s true that 179 million Americans planned on handing out candy last Halloween, Father’s Day is a great time to give candy too. And the great thing about candy is that there are so many varieties that you can really get creative with a candy-filled gift. If you’re looking for a gift for someone who loves fishing, a cute and sweet gift is to take a mini tackle box and fill it with fish-themed candy like gummy worms and Swedish Fish. Not only will he get a box full of candies, but he can use the tackle box afterward, so it’s a win-win. Another great gift idea for candy-lovers is to create your own 6-pack of candy. By emptying out soda bottles and filling them with their favorite candy, you’ll have a simple and tasty gift in no time.

For the Auto Enthusiast

One of the most common interests among men is cars. The men in your life are sure to have a dream car that they hope to own one day. And while PwC predicts that about 107 million vehicles will be manufactured around the world in 2020, it’s probably not going to be possible for you to buy them their dream car. But fortunately, there are still great car-related gift ideas you can get that they’re sure to love. One of the best gift ideas for car-lovers is car accessories. Whether it’s car chargers, seat covers, or a manly air freshener, the men in your life will love being able to add some accessories to their car. Additionally, you can help decorate their garage or man cave with car-related decor. From clocks to chairs, there are so many options for car-themed decor that can help spruce up any area in your home. And of course, you can never go wrong with buying them some new tools to work on their cars — even if it seems like they have a million tools, there’s always something they’ll want or need. So while you may not be able to buy them the car of their dreams, you can still give a gift that comes from the heart and furthers their love of all things car-related.

For the Eco-Friendly Dad

With all of the harm that is done to the Earth every day, more and more people are starting to really care about the environment and the impact they have on it. In fact, a 2016 West Rock Consumer Insights Study found that 45% of people have bought a product due to the packaging being environmentally-friendly. So if the men in your life really care about the environment, you should get them a gift that is not only great for them, but for the environment too. Fortunately, there are plenty of eco-friendly gifts to choose from. One of the most popular eco-friendly gifts is reusable or recycled items. Coffee mugs, water bottles, and even journals all come made from recycled materials nowadays. And when it comes to drinkware, reusable items are great choices so they don’t have to throw away paper or plastic cups and bottles. Additionally, you can buy all sorts of organic products, ranging from food to personal care items, that they’re sure to appreciate. And lastly, if the man in your life isn’t much of a gift-lover, then what better way to show you care than to make a donation in his name? There are plenty of eco-friendly organizations that would appreciate any help they can get and it’s sure to mean a lot to the eco-friendly dad in your life.

While there are tons of gift ideas for Father’s Day, it doesn’t matter what gift you choose in the end. As long as you put thought and care behind it, the men in your life are sure to love getting any gift, big or small, simply because it’s from you.
