Father's Day Gift Ideas

Sometimes it feels impossible to buy for dads. People like my dad and grandpa seem to have everything they need and their list of wants is very short (and boring). And going with the stereotypical tie for Father's Day is just lame and overdone! So I've put some thought into it, and here are a few gift ideas for Father's Day.

Car wash gift bucket. 

If your dad is like mine, he loves having a clean car. Take a stroll through the auto section and grab a bucket, car soap, a sponge, and a shammy to help him keep his vehicle clean. There's tons of other tools and supplies to keep cars clean, so just look around and grab anything else that you think he'd like.

New watch.

If your dad wears a watch every day, a nice new watch could be the perfect gift. Head to the jeweler's and take a look through all their watches. If the perfect watch is a bit out of your budget, you could always see if your siblings want to pitch in for a group gift.

Favorite movie.

Maybe your dad has a favorite movie he always watches on TV, but doesn't have it on DVD. If so, you should help him out and get him his favorite movie for Father's Day! To complete the gift you could add in some popcorn.

A good book.

If your dad likes to read, you could always give him a good book. Maybe he keeps a list of books to read, so you could pick a book off his list or maybe he has a favorite genre or topic you could use as inspiration for his gift. 

Photo album.

You could collect some photos from over the years of you and your dad to put in a photo album for him. It's always fun to look back at old photos, and this is a great way to celebrate your dad on Father's Day. If you don't want to make the album yourself, there are tons of different photo sites to use to make a photo book online and have shipped to you!

Those are some of my gift ideas for dads this Father's Day. I hope this list helps you out!

What do you like to get your dad for Father's Day? Have you given him any of the gift ideas on this list before? Let me know in the comments!


  1. My dad is literally the hardest person to come up with gift ideas for! Also Father's Day isn't really celebrated in Switzerland but this kind of made me think about doing something special for my dad this year. I would be such a lovely surprise since he's not expecting anything at all :) The photo album is definitely a great idea x

    1. It's one of my favorite gifts we've given him! It's so nice and special. I'm sure your dad would love a little surprise!

  2. The carwash bucket is such a cute Idea. Especially because I am pretty sure my father loves his car more than anything else in the world.
