Father’s Day is just around the corner (June 16, in case you were wondering), so it’s time to do some shopping for the dads in your life. Whether it’s your partner, your father-in-law, your own dad, or your co-parent, this is an opportunity for you to gift them with something you know they’ll love as a token of appreciation for all of the things they do for their kids (or grandkids, or stepkids, or whatever the relation is). 

If you’ve found yourself in a state of panic because the clock is ticking and you have absolutely no idea what to get for Father’s Day this year, we get it. To help you out, we’ve compiled a list of some fun gift ideas for dads of all ages with a wide range of interests. Pair one of these presents with a cute hand-made card from your kiddo, and he will surely feel the love this holiday.

Pro Spin All-in-One Portable Ping Pong Set

If you love a fun game of ping pong and don’t have space for the massive table needed to play the sport, that’s where Pro Spin’s All-in-One Portable Ping Pong Set comes in. It includes everything you need for a four-person game of table tennis, including a net that can fasten to just about any table. My family has one of these sets, and not only do the kids love to bounce the balls around, but it has also made for a few fun impromptu at-home dates for my husband and me.

Apostrophe Jigsaw Puzzle

You can’t go wrong with a gift from Apostrophe Puzzles for the dad who appreciates art and the quiet concentration needed to complete a puzzle. The company has several stunning puzzles to choose from, but we’re partial to Bengal Blue, a 1000-piece puzzle by Vinita Karim that features vibrant colors, fun designs, and gorgeous techniques.

Nations Photo Lab Gifts

If you’re looking for a gift on the sentimental side, Nations Photo Lab offers tons of thoughtful options. Curate a collection of photos of him and the kids in a soft-cover Buzz Book, give him something to look at during the workday with a custom mousepad, or help him decorate his space with a gorgeous acrylic print of his favorite snapshot. There isn’t much here that won’t make him smile.

Kansas City Steaks Sampler Gift Box

Are steaks a cliche Father’s Day gift? Sure, but just because it’s cliche doesn’t make it a bad gift! Remember, it became a cliche for a reason. If the dad in your life loves a good steak, he’ll be thrilled to receive the Father’s Day Steak Sampler Gift Box from Kansas City Steaks. It includes two 8-ounce super-trimmed filet mignons, two 12-ounce Kansas City strips, and two 10-ounce ribeyes. Not only can you gift him some delicious meals, but you can also give him the gift of firing up the grill several times, which we can only assume is something he also loves to do.

Colsen Tabletop Fire Pit

Add a little ambiance to Dad’s patio with a Tabletop Fire Pit from Colsen Fire Pits. There are a number of great designs available, each bringing warmth and charm to any outdoor space. For something classic, we like the round option; the hexagon-shaped fire pit is also a solid choice, or you can surprise Dad with the fun—I mean tough—skull design.

Our Place Dream Cooker

The Our Place Dream Cooker is equipped with everything Dad needs to make a delicious meal, and its aesthetically pleasing design makes it more of a focal point than an eyesore sitting out on the counter. This 6-quart cooker has four modes: Pressure cook, slow cook, sear and saute, and keep warm, and it features a digital display that’s intuitive and easy to use. As a bonus, if this is for your partner, you can just sit back and enjoy all of the yummy meals he’ll whip up in this gadget for you and the kids.

Beyond Yoga Performance Shorts

These Performance Shorts by Beyond Yoga are basically the dad-version of leggings. They’re great for working out or simply lounging around the house because they’re so soft and comfortable. These lightweight shorts are available in seven colors and feature pockets and elastane for stretch and comfort. They’re also stretchy, feature pockets, and are available in seven colors. Much like how you feel about your staple yoga pants, he won’t want to wear anything else.

ICEMULE Backpack Cooler

Whether he’s outdoorsy or needs something to tote the kids’ watermelon and grapes to the pool this summer, the R-Jaunt 20L Backpack Cooler from ICEMULE is just what he needs to keep everything cool and fresh. It’s sustainably made and has a soft design that makes it lightweight and easily transportable. It’s also water resistant, made with high-quality insulation materials to keep contents cold for hours, and comfortable to wear. TBH, you may want to get one for yourself, too.

Sun Squad Jumbo Connect Game

Give Dad this Jumbo Connect Game by Sun Squad for some family games in the backyard. Connect Four is a great family game because little kids can get the hang of it quickly, and it involves enough strategy for adults to enjoy. This set measures around 26 inches high, just under 8 inches wide, and 31.5 inches deep. It’s also made with durable materials and includes storage bags for the connect pieces to help you avoid losing them between games.

Pura Car Fragrance Diffuser

We have come a long way from hanging cardboard trees from our rearview mirrors. This Car Fragrance Diffuser from Pura is sleek, nice to look at, and has a smart design that only diffuses scent when it senses motion (meaning you get even more for your money). Plus, it connects to an app, so you can start or stop the diffuser at any point and control the intensity (but if Dad doesn’t want to add another app to his phone, this can be done manually, too). There are a lot of great, luxe scents to choose from, whether he prefers something sweet, earthy, or tangy. 

Nintendo Switch Princess Peach: Showtime

We all know that Mario is Nintendo’s golden boy, but he needs to step aside because Princess Peach is ready to play. The new Nintendo Switch game, Princess Peach: Showtime, is an excellent Father’s Day gift for a dad with Nintendo newbies because it’s a bit simpler than the classic multi-level/multi-world Mario Brothers games, so it’s fun to play with younger kids who are just getting into video games. As a bonus, this game also gives Dad and the kids an excuse to sing “Peaches” on a loop (as if they haven’t been doing this for the last year anyway).

Burlap & Barrel Chef’s Collection Spice Set

Give Pops the tools he needs to take his cooking to the next level with Burlap & Barrel’s Chef’s Collection Spice Set. You can gift him the six-pack option, which includes purple shallot powder, ground black lime, black urfa chili, sun-dried tomato powder, wild mountain cumin, and herbes de Provence or the 12-pack, which includes everything in the six-pack as well as a black mineral salt, purple dulse flakes, Szegedi 178 hot paprika, five spice, cloud forest cardamom (whole pods), and wild mesquite. With these delicious spices, his meals will be better than ever.

Lush Super Dad Bath Bomb

If he’s the kind of guy who can appreciate a hot, relaxing bath, then he will love the Super Dad Bath Bomb from Lush. The vegan bomb smells like a mixture of violet, rose, and bergamot, and it’s packed with oils that will leave his skin feeling super soft and nourished. Perhaps the best part is that as this bath bomb fizzes and separates in the tub, it creates some gorgeous bath art before settling and turning all of the water a pretty light blue color.

Shaker & Spoon Gift Subscription

It’s not a Father’s Day gift guide if it doesn’t include at least one mention of alcoholic beverages (I don’t make the rules; I just follow them). Dads who enjoy craft cocktails will love a gift subscription from Shaker & Spoon, which is available as a one-month to one-year subscription. Each monthly box includes four recipe cards and all ingredients needed to make four servings of each cocktail, with the exception of alcohol. The boxes are all themed around one type of liquor, and the included recipe cards are specific to that spirit.

Fossil Apple Watch Band

Give his Apple Watch an upgrade with this Brown Leather Band from Fossil. The real-leather band is designed in two pieces that attach to the Apple Watch screen and clasp together at the wrist with an adjustable fastener. It’s a simple, classic design but a tiny step up from a rubber or nylon strap.
