Father’s Day will be here before you know it, and that means one thing: you’ll need to get a gift for the guy in your life. But what will it be? It’s not always easy to know what your partner, dad, or the father figure in your life would want. You can always go the classic route and get very dad-oriented gifts (you know, like a tie or something to help him get his grill on). Or you can think somewhat outside the box and find a gift that’s part practical, part fun, and will be appreciated by both dads and grandads alike.
These Father’s Day gifts offer a little something for everyone. You’ll find items that are edible (like popcorn in fun flavors to chocolates that go far beyond your basic milk chocolate bar). You’ll also discover gifts that cater to his musical side, as well as ones that can be added on to his workout routine. For dads who can’t be without their dog, there’s even a gift that’s perfect for pooches. Clothing is also covered on this Father’s Day gifts list, and if he’s picked up a penchant for pickle ball, well, he just might find a new paddle that will help him perfect his game.
These Father’s Day gifts are a starting point if you’re trying to figure out what to get your guy this year, especially if you’ve got a guy who is fine with “whatever.”
An Engraved Grill Set To Help Him Get His Grill On
Summertime means warm weather, backyard BBQs, and Dad at the grill. Instead of him using the same ol’ spatula, get him this Grill Master Gift Set from Groovy Guy Gifts. The set come with quality BBQ tools like a stainless steel spatula, fork, and tongs, but what truly sets this gift apart is the box that it comes in. The personalized grill set can be personalized with up to two lines of text (think “World’s Greatest Dad”) and his name in the center. This set is sure to become your father’s favorite. While he can store the utensils in the beautiful box between BBQs, it can be also used as a keepsake or storage box for Dad’s sentimental items.

A Charging Station For All His Devices

Not only can it charge three devices at once (think an iPhone, AirPods, and Apple Watch) but it does so sans cables. It takes up minimal desk or counter space, since it can fold up flat once all your items are done charging, meaning you’ll never see that dreaded 10% battery life warning again.

A Pair Of Shorts That Are Stylish And Soft
Shorts might not seem like a special gift for Father’s Day — unless it’s the Interloop Sweat Short from Buck Mason, for example. The full-cut shorts offer extra coverage so the dad figure in your life won’t have to worry about over exposure. They’re made from cotton French terry, making them super soft. But what sets these shorts apart is how strong they are, which can immediately be felt once you put them on.

A Neck Pillow That’s Perfect For Plane Rides
Let’s face it: having your head hanging forward mid-flight isn’t the ideal way to travel. But when you have a neck pillow (like the one from Miniso), you’ll feel more well-rested as your neck soaks up all that cushy comfort. The Miniso Neck Protection Memory Foam U-Shaped Pillow with Sleep Mask is meant to offer you the best sleep, no matter where you are. The ergonomic shape allows you to rest without hurting your shoulders or neck. And thanks to the 100% polyurethane filling, the U-shaped pillow won’t become, well, another uncomfortable letter of the alphabet. Take it with you on car rides (when you’re the passenger), on planes — anyplace where you can give your body the break it needs. .
Eye Masks To Make Him Look Like He Got A Full Night’s Sleep
Say goodbye to undereye bags when you use the Blue Eye Masks from Grace & Stella.

Even the tongue on the sneakers is stylish, since it features an embroidered lion’s head that feels like velvet.

A Car Fragrance To Make His Mustang Smell Better

The stylish shirt boasts soft fabric that gives additional stretch, so it won’t stick to your skin or feel constricting. Made in the USA, the shirt is designed to block out a whopping 98% of UV rays, and reduces UV radiation exposure as well, even up to and after 40 washes. The shirt measures longer in the back so Dad won’t have to worry when he’s bending over or hike up his pants when sitting down. And with its half-zip mock design, Dad can stay as warm (or cool) as he wants.

A Facial Cleanser To Keep His Skin Smooth
If you thought that the beauty products cluttering the bathroom counter were only for moms, think again. Case in point: the Face Cleanser from Shiseido gives Dad the soft, smooth skin he deserves. Simply take a dime-size amount of cleanser into your hands, add some water, and rub together to form a luxurious lather. Applying the foam to the skin can help exfoliate it by removing debris, dirt, and other oils. But (woot woot), the 2-in-1 foaming wash doubles as a shaving cream as well.
