It's time for a Father's Day Gift Guide! From relaxation and grilling to a home gym and family activities, I've got fun gifts to help you celebrate the fathers and father figures in your life.
Fathers can be notoriously hard to shop for! Most guys I know are so practical; if they need something, they buy it. Luckily, I was able to pick Bobby's brain for some of his favorites and round up some past gifts that have been a hit. I think there's something for everyone on this Father's Day Gift Guide, whether you're shopping for your partner, your own dad, or a brother, uncle, or neighbor who acts as an awesome father figure. In this post I've included:
- Fun Gifts: Games and Activities the Whole Family Enjoys!
- Home Gym Gifts for Father's Day
- Summertime Clothing
- Father's Day Gifts for Relaxation
- Grilling, Coffee, & Wine Gifts
- Homemade Food Gifts
In addition, I am continuing to add ideas to my Father's Day Gifts page on my Amazon storefront so please check that out as well!
Fun Father's Day Gift Guide
We got this Portable Basketball Hoop for Bobby's birthday recently and it's surprisingly fun for everyone! The kids are totally awestruck when Dad sinks a basket. For a smaller option, we have this Door Basketball Hoop in our bedroom and the kids love to run upstairs when Bobby gets home and they all play this while he changes after work! I gave Bobby this Strikeball Set last year and we love playing it outside with the kids. It's simple enough that little ones can get the hang of it and play, but the adults have just as much fun. We also love this Giant Bubble Kit, which has everyone in sight wide-eyed and grinning.
Father's Day Gift Guide: Home Gym
Bobby and I both work out at home and love anything that adds to our home gym! I got the Power Tower as a birthday gift for him one year and we love it. Before that we used this one, which is amazing for smaller spaces AND doesn't look bulky or out of place in a more central room. A few simple, versatile home workout tools are Core Sliders or Resistance Bands, which are affordable and effective! For any after-workout tightness, we LOVE this massage gun. A couple years ago I got these adjustable dumbbells for Bobby and he still uses them for all his strength training workouts. They are great for small spaces and easy to adjust. He absolutely loves them.
Summertime Father's Day Gifts
There are a few summertime favorites that Bobby lives in all season long. His favorite shorts are Twill Shorts, which are great paired with Easy Slide Sandals. These sunglasses are $10, polarized, and Bobby likes them better than more expensive options he's had in the past! Give summertime clothes with a lightweight, no-kink hose so they can have a truly classic dad weekend watering the lawn.
For trips to the beach, a nice cooler is a good option such as this portable cooler or this lightweight cooler backpack, as well as a portable folding side table and comfortable camping chair (with this shade attachment).
Father's Day Gifts for Relaxation
For a guy who needs a little rest and relaxation, you can't go wrong with a classic robe. I have my eye on this HATCH Reading Light and Sound Machine, which would make evenings and mornings so peaceful. I got these Performance Pants for Bobby and he lives in them around the house and on weekends! They look nicer than regular pajamas, but they're just as comfy. Bobby recently got his dad a Heated Razor Set, which is such a cool upgrade to a classic shave. For a music lover, go for a Record Player along with one of their favorites on vinyl or a waterproof bluetooth speaker. If the guy you're shopping for doesn't already wireless headphones, now might be the time. I recently got my brother this slim wallet, and he loves it. It would be perfect for tucking a gift card inside! My brother recently gave me a Digital Photo Frame, and I'm obsessed. It would be perfect for dads, uncles, grandparents, anyone you love!
Grilling, Pizza, Coffee, Tools and Wine Gifts for Father's Day
A couple years ago my mom got my brother this incredible pizza oven. I've used it myself and it is like restaurant-style wood-fire grill quality. I've used it with my homemade pizza crust and it comes out super flavorful and crispy. I highly, highly recommend.
We have and love this Rolling Grill Basket and this Classic Grill Pan. Both are perfect for kebabs, veggies, whatever you're grilling! A Grill Tool Set is always a hit (or this BBQ tool set), along with protective gloves and this Grill Brush. You can also up their spice game with a 4-Tier Spice Rack. This Mug and Warmer or Rambler Mug would be the perfect gift for a coffee lover. You could also go for an Electric Kettle! If you're shopping for more of a wine lover, try an Electric Wine Opener. We've given this as a gift before and it so handy! Finally, if you'd like to upgrade your blender, gift the Beast Health Blender! It's perfect for individual sized smoothies, protein shakes, dressings, sauces, dips, and it's super easy to take on the go. I'm a fan!
For the pasta lover, try going the homemade route with this pasta machine!
A couple years ago my brother asked me to get him this stainless steel Multitool with Premium Replaceable Wire Cutters, Spring-Action Scissors and Nylon Sheath. To this day he loves it and is so grateful we got it for him. I've also gotten my brother this Multitool Card. It has 18 uses for repairs, survival, camping etc. - everything you would need in a wallet sized gadget!
It wouldn't be an Eating by Elaine gift guide without some food! I always love a homemade gift, and you can't go wrong with the Best Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies. I think making a homemade version of their favorite candy would be so thoughtful. We all love Almond Butter Dark Chocolate Cups, Homemade Almond Joys, Easy Healthier Crunch Bars, and Vegan Peppermint Patties.
