Father’s Day is approaching, and there’s an opportunity to celebrate the dads, granddads, husbands, and all the father figures in our lives, whether they’re near or far, with one of the best Father’s Day gifts.
If you’re lucky enough to be spending the day with your father come June 21, there are plenty of activity-based Father’s Day gift ideas worth considering. Perhaps it’s firing up your own pizza with an at-home portable oven, getting out on the green together to put his new golf balls and tees to the test, or sitting down for some good old-fashioned conversation over a cocktail served in a new set of drinkware.
If you aren’t celebrating in person, there are gifts for that too. Surprise him with a shipment of the highest quality cuts from Peter Luger’s steakhouse, or sign him up for a monthly subscription of his go-to spirit for the gift that keeps on giving from Mash&Grape. An outdoor firepit and festival chair would create quite the wonderful backyard escape. And a performance-focused smartwatch strap would make a stylish upgrade for dads who enjoy outdoor exercise, bike rides (there’s a gift for that too!), or long runs.
Is he a sports guy? A sleek desk accessory, a vintage collector’s rugby ball, or an impressive Formula 1 coffee-table book would add a nice touch to his home office bookshelves or study. For the adventurous type, a mini camper caravan would be nothing short of a grand gesture, while a lightweight Patagonia jacket is the practical outdoorsy piece he’ll be sure to love. And when it comes to style-savvy fathers, you can’t go wrong with something practical that also steps up his wardrobe game—nothing like a new pair of swim shorts or a classic everyday sneaker to brighten his day.
Here, find the best Father’s Day gifts for every kind of dad, and cheers to making it the most meaningful one yet.
