Gifts Dads Really Want For Father’s Day

With Father’s Day coming up in June I thought it was a good time to share some gifts dads really want for Father’s Day. I consulted my husband and a few other dads out there to make sure I knew what was what. You guys loved my Gifts Moms Really Want For Mothers Day post so I knew I had to do this too!

Gifts Dads Really Want For Father's Day

Gifts Dads Really Want For Father’s Day


  • Air Fryer: We got an air fryer about a month ago and I am pretty sure it’s one of my husband’s favorite things. He loves finding new things we can do in the air fryer and honestly food just tastes better in it!
  • Sunglasses: Who doesn’t need new sunglasses? I know one of Andrew’s favorite gifts ever was a nice pair of sunglasses I got him before we went on a big vacation! He still wears them all the time.
  • Headphones: Andrew got a pair of AfterShokz headphones several months ago and thinks they are THE BEST! They are bone-conducting headphones, so you can still have a full conversation even wearing them. Another go-to is AirPods Pros. That was actually my Mother’s Day gift this year!
  • AirTag/Tile: Not something I would really think of, but everyone is loving the new AirTag from Apple and I know I have gifted Andrew the Tile in the past and he loves it!
  • A day to go fishing/golfing: While moms definitely need time to themselves, so do dads! I think a great gift is a full day to do their hobby of choice. For Andrew that would be fishing but for other dads maybe it’s golfing, tennis, etc.
  • Tools: Tools are ALWAYS a big hit!  I know Andrew has a long list of ones he wants and if you aren’t sure which ones to get I think a gift card to Lowes or Home Depot is always a great idea!
  • A day to work on a house project: Another experience type thing would be a day to get a house project done!
  • A fancy bottle of scotch: I know my whiskey-loving husband would LOVE a nice bottle of booze!
  • Soundbar: I think this is such a great gift. I know so many guys that LOVE their soundbars, including my dad!
  • Nice Sneakers: Andrew loves his Allbirds and a little birdie told me he may get some On Cloud sneakers soon too! I think any guy would LOVE a nice pair of sneakers!

I hope this helps if you are in the market for great gifts dads REALLY want for Father’s Day. I mean picture frames and art are great too but why not get him something really cool?

What are you gifting for Father’s Day this year??

    My dad has been on disability for about 10 years and can’t really enjoy much in life, but something sports or booze related is always a winner 🙂 I’ll have to look into a fancy bottle of scotch for him! Great ideas here.

    I definitely agree with the air fryer. My dad’s birthday was earlier this month and that’s what we got him and he absolutely loved it! My dad can always use a new pair of sunglasses as his often get lost while he is out fishing.

    My dad really wants me back for good (I live in Japan and he lives in the States). And, coffee. Good coffee.

    These are great ideas; I love the thought of gifting a day to do their favorite hobby! I might even offer to go golfing with my dad – I haven’t been with him since I was little.
