Attention! If you always buy two of the same generic gifts for men for Father’s Day (one for your dad and one for your hubs), this is the universe telling you to stop that right now. Hobbies and interests aside, there’s most likely a big age difference between your dad and husband. Getting them both the same gift might leave one uninterested or just flat out confused (your hubby probably doesn’t want a refurbished cassette player, FYI). Instead, this is just a suggestion: Consider getting a little more personal this year with the Father’s Day gifts for your dad and the one you pick out for your hubby. Because, TBH, the last thing your partner probs wants is to accidentally match with his father-in-law because you got them both the same sweater. Just sayin’.
Father’s Day is swiftly approaching (ahem, June 19th!!), so I’d highly recommend getting on your gift shopping by having a look at the selects below—especially if you’re a fellow procrastinator, like yours truly. And if you’re having trouble with being more personable or aren’t sure where to start, don’t you worry because we got ya covered. There’s something here for him, from experience and getaway gifts to everything he needs to whip up a celebratory dinner (or for you to do it for him—it is his day, after all).
Our top picks for the best birthday gifts for your husband/partner in 2022:
So whether he’s a dad to actual human children or the co-parent to your furbabies, keep on scrolling to spoil your husband with one of these 41 fantastic gift ideas below that say, “Here’s a special Father’s Day gift that I picked out for you—specifically.”

Glowing Review: “This was such a beautiful way to experience Bali. Highly recommend if you’re after something low-fuss, mindful, and in a stunning natural location.”
How do I spoil my husband on father’s Day?
There are a couple of splurge-y options on this list, or you can bundle some of the gifts together for a ~one-of-a-kind~ gift basket. The key here is to give him something he won’t expect (if he’s into surprises, that is, some people just wanna know what they’re getting in advance) and something that won’t immediately start collecting dust. In my experience, getting him plates and utensils, unless they’re for drinking or grilling, just aren’t going to get used. Each item on this list has been used and loved—or specifically requested—by a hubby in our lives.
What can I do for my husband on Father’s Day?
If your budget is tight or you’d rather gift an experience (fancy!), why not one of the available Airbnb trips? Or get something that makes his life easier, through some sort of customizable kitchen implement. When in doubt, even if it’s something small, customization via monogramming or other personalization is the way to show him he’s special.
