Practical Gifts for Fathers Day

Around comes another Fathers Day…have you done your shopping for the dad in your life?

Are you positive what you have in mind hasn’t been given to him before?  Are you getting him  practical items for Fathers Day?

You won’t see a single tie, coffee mug, or t-shirt on this list!

In my opinion, if those are given to you once in your lifetime, you have enough of them!  No one needs a cupboard full of #1 dad mugs or a closet full of unworn ties and t-shirts.

Step up your gift game for the dad in your life this Fathers Day!

(Update:  This whole list has been approved by my wonderful husband and the father of my child!)

Squatty Potty

If your husband or father walks through the door after work and heads to the bathroom for the next 30 minutes with his phone, this is the gift for you!

Key Organizer

Does he have as many keys as a high school janitor?  Do his keys tear up his pants and the couch?  Make the jingling stop and save the snags in the couch!

Key Chain Tools

For the handy man on your gift list.  No more will he have to run to the closest garage or store to get a screwdriver for a little project!

Magnetic Wrist Band

If you are constantly bringing decor and picture frames home from Hobby Lobby for him to hang up, make his life a bit easier.  This magnetic wrist band holds screws, drill bits, and an assortment of other metal hardware so he can use both of his hands and still be able to have things in easy reach.

Grilling Tool Set, Platter & Spices

Do you have a God of the Grill on your hands?  Get him the ultimate grilling tool set, a set of delicious spices, and a nice big handled platter to carry his mounds of meat in and out of the house.

A nice new watch

Step up his wrist watch game with a nice new Fossil!  Then head out for a night on the town so he can show it off!

A funny outfit for a baby

Have a new dad in your life?  Get his little one a fun outfit to celebrate him surviving to his first Fathers Day!

Grooming Kit

If you have a manly man who sports facial hair, give him the gift of a full grooming set and if he’s going to grow a beard, make sure he takes care of those whiskers!

Docking Station

Does the man you’re shopping for constantly ask where his wallet, keys, phone or watch are?  Get him this fabulous docking station to keep all of his pocket goodies in one spot and he can even charge his phone on the station!

Record Player (With BlueTooth capabilities)

Give him the gift of fancy music!  This amazing device can play records, radio, cassette tapes, CDs, and has bluetooth connections.  It’s an all in one music station!

Grab him some fabulous records to play on it!

An All in One Dremel

For all the pesky little projects around the house.  It’s a miniature version of dozens of tools and can tackle most home projects you have on your list.

A Dad Joke Book

So he thinks he’s a comedian?  Give him some new material and a good laugh when he opens this gift!

Portable Survival Tool

For the dad who enjoys the great outdoors, he can start fires and be safe while enjoying the wilderness!

A Whiskey Decanter Set

For the classy whiskey drinking dad, let him impress his friends at the next poker night and serve up some fancy looking drinks!

A Poker Night Set

Not only are you giving him a nice poker set, but you are giving him an easy way to make plans with his friends.

You can grab him a fabulous case full of chips.  A table topper to throw on a folding or dining table or you can grab a folding table with built in cup holders.

Subscription to Dollar Shave Club

Take razors, soap, shaving cream, after shave, and all kinds of grooming products off of the grocery list and have them mailed to the dad in our life for pennies on the dollar you’re used to spending!

Satellite Radio Subscription

Give him access to hundreds of fun satellite radio channels that can stream his favorite music genres, sporting events, and talk shows!

Sport Channel Subscription

Some leagues and teams have their own channels now!  Get him the gift of unlimited watching of his favorite sport!

Tickets to an event

Is his favorite professional team coming into the area for a game?  Is his favorite band going to be in town in a few months?  Grab some tickets.  Either go as a family or chat with his friends and plan a whole evening out for him!
