Father’s Day Gift Guide
Finding the perfect gift for Father’s Day can sometimes be pretty challenging. I often have no clue what to get my husband or dad. It isn’t that they’re picky, but it is hard to figure out anything new or different to get them other than tools. This year I decided to put together a guide based on items I have discovered in my search for the perfect gifts for them. Maybe this will help give you some ideas too!

My husband loves grooming products as gifts. He has wanted a Manscaped electric razor for a long time, and this year he is getting one! He already knows about it, obviously, and he is stoked. He is planning to use his on his face to keep his face smooth or his beard and mustache trimmed and shaped nicely. I am excited because he is excited.
So, what’s the big deal about Manscaped anyway? You may be asking. Well, let me tell you a little about some of the perks of having one of these:
- SkinSafe™️ anti-nick tech cuts smoothly through the coarsest hair, preventing pulls, cuts, and tugs in even the most delicate of areas.
- QuietStroke™️ technology provides an ultra-quiet, low-vibrations grooming experience, even with a powerful 7,000 RPM motor.
- Rust-resistant, replaceable Snap-In™️ ceramic blade for uninterrupted sharp, Hyper-Hygienic™️ trimming.
- Water-resistant, so you can trim in the shower and watch your grooming problems go down the drain which saves us ladies from having to clean the sink (You all know what I’m talking about).
- It’s the ultimate tool to get the job done.
- Makes his daily grooming routine more refined, masculine, and effective.
- When I tell you this is premium, I mean premium. The battery will last up to 90 minutes so you can take a longer shave.
- One of the coolest features is the LED light which illuminates areas for a closer, and more precise trimming.
- And let’s not forget about the USB rapid charging dock.
As you can see, it’s a pretty cool tool.

3. Swanky Badger
I got this wallet for him a while back from Swanky Badger and I wanted to share this product and brand with you. If you are looking for items you can personalize, they have a ton you can choose from. They have wallets, watches, bracelets, Dopp kits, appreciation boxes, phone cases, display boxes, and more. We chose to have his favorite scripture verse put on his wallet, and he loves it.
4. Tombstone- Skin Actives
Another set of men’s skin products that my husband has really enjoyed that I wanted to tell you about are the Tombstone products from Skin Actives. They have beard growth serum, a brush, wash, hair growth serum, and after shave. And guess what!?! They are currently on sale! You can mix and match or buy them all!
5. K. Bell Socks
I know this might sound like a pretty lame gift, but, socks are always a good choice. I remember when I was little we would buy gifts for my dad and always say, “it’s not socks, daddy” and sometimes it would be. We just thought it would be funny to try to trick him, but I am not sure it ever really worked. My husband loves socks though. K. Bell Socks are some of the best. Not only are the prices great, but there are so many different designs! You can get socks for the whole family here. They have ankle socks, knee high socks, crew, compression, slipper, ultra soft, single pair, multi packs, and more.
6. Gift Cards
Gift cards are always another option. My husband and dad love tools, but I don’t always know what tools they want or have or need. So, a gift card to Lowe’s or Harbor Freight or The Home Depot are always good ideas. It gives them something to open and then they get the joy of spending time in the “toy store” as they call it picking out what they want to add to their ever-growing collections. Of course, I also enjoy it because that means I get to use my husband’s stuff to build and make too. I know, I know. Some of you are probably thinking, “he lets you use his stuff!?!” Yes, yes, he does. He often comes home and just finds out I made something or did something, and he has zero problems with it.
Maybe your man or dad doesn’t like tools but they like to eat or need new clothes or are a gamer. You can get them gift cards for those items too.
7. Homemade/ At Home
Another way to go is homemade. I very often forget to buy cards. I am also pretty cheap. I have this really bad habit of going to the .97 cent section at the store to purchase a card or flipping it over to see the prices and if it isn’t in a certain range, it goes back on the shelf. I know. I am cheap. But, let’s face it, most people barely read the card and throw it in the trash later anyway. So, most years we do homemade cards. Each of the kids makes their own to give to him and so do I. They draw or use stickers or just write messages. He loves those more than any store-bought card anyway.
If your kids are smaller, you could do some kind of canvas for the wall with their footprints or handprints. Pinterest is full of great ideas.
You can cook him a meal at home. Decorate the table all special (Dollar Tree has lots of decor you can use). Watch a movie together as a family.
Here is another idea that is sometimes overlooked because it is seen as just for women in a lot of cases. Get your man or your dad a gift certificate to a massage or pedicure. OR…..give them one yourself. Men work hard. Their muscles get tired and achy. Why not treat them to a time where they can get some of that worked out? Of course, you can go with them if you’d like or be picky in who you choose as the masseuse.
My husband also enjoys pedicures. He gets ingrown toenails, and I just cannot cut them out the same way someone at the pedicure place can. I do try and have tried, but sometimes it is just nicer and easier to take him somewhere and let someone else do it.
My dad loves birds and trees. He has lots of bird feeders around their property. My sister and I are probably going to get him some birdseed or maybe even a tree or two to plant.
My husband loves spending time with the kids and making memories. An idea for him might be to get a coffee mug made with a picture of the kiddos on it.
There are lots of cool things out there that are sentimental and last longer than just a day or two that dad’s all over everywhere would love.
Maybe you have other ideas that you do that you would like to share. Feel free to drop them in the comments or email them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I might feature them in a second Father’s Day Gift Guide from my readers.
