Some dads are easy to shop for, while others require a hunt through oodles of Father’s Day gift ideas for the perfect fit. Lucky for you, we’ve scoured the web so you don’t have to. Ready to show him some love?
Here are 11 uber-thoughtful Father’s Day gift ideas to get the ball rolling:
1. Soapstone Griddle
No matter the season, he'll be able to get his grill on with the SPARQ Home Soapstone Griddle. This griddle/grill combo can be used both on your indoor cooktop and outdoor barbecue.
Handmade in the USA (Colorado, to be exact) with soapstone factory excess, the griddle stores heat longer than any other cooking material (translation: Uses less energy), and distributes it as evenly as copper. Best of all, it's not treated with any of the harmful chemicals that tend to go hand-in-hand with non-stick cookware. It's simply cut and shipped au natural - never compromising the taste of your food.
2. Messenger Bag
For the man on a mission, the Heathrow Messenger Bag is made from organic-cotton canvas and offers roomy storage for all of his daily essentials. It has both top carry handles and an adjustable shoulder strap, along with plenty of pockets for his electronics.
3. Beer Making Kit
This Beer Making Kit by Brooklyn Brew Shop is perfect for the beer lover with an itty-bitty kitchen. It’s an easy-to-use reusable kit that contains step-by-step instructions and all the tools dad needs to make small batch, artisan beer. Each mix produces about one gallon of beer.
4. Shaving Set
If he's looking to streamline his grooming routine, he can do so with Pacific Shaving Company's Ultimate Natural/Eco-Friendly Shaving Set. The set contains PSC's All Natural Shaving Oil, Shaving Cream, Nick Stick and Blade Oil (which extends the life of a blade by 95 percent!).
But not just any keychain: The Presence Key Ring is handmade in the USA by California artist Jes MaHarry. Personalized with an engraved initial, it's made from hammered pewter, an iron ring and leather with bead.
6. Soccer Ball
If you’re looking for Father’s Day gift ideas for the sporty dad, The One World Futbol never needs a pump and never goes flat. It’s super durable, and can be used on any surface. For every ball purchased, a second is donated to youth in disadvantaged communities.
7. Casual Kicks
Nothing beats TOMS Original Classics shoes. Available in a variety of colors, not only will he enjoy the casual comfort during summer treks, but each pair sold will help a person in need through TOMS One for One movement – and who doesn’t love Father’s Day gift ideas that give back?
