8 Father’s Day Gift Ideas

May 29, 2018

I feel like buying anything for my husband or dad is always a challenge because what do you get the man who already has everything??? When I ask either of them for ideas the usual reply is “I don’t need anything.” Obviously they are still getting something so I tried to get creative this year and put together a list of father’s day gift ideas that both dad & grandpa would appreciate. My hubby isn’t allowed to look at this list because some of his gifts are on here. 🙂

1. Pottery 

Something handmade from the kids is obviously a great go-to for gift for relatives. This year the girl’s helped decorate this plate for their dad since he loves to grill out. We went to a local paint and pottery place and although momma did most of the work the girls still had fun lending a hand print to make these. 

2. Beer Cake/Tower

I feel like you can never go wrong with getting any guy beer, right??? My husband loves his craft brew so I had this made last year for his birthday although I think it would also make a great  father’s day gift! He probably wouldn’t even mind getting this gift more than once! HEB put this one together for me. Pricing depends on the type of beer you select and on the quantity, they can do as much or as little as you want.

3. Golf Tee Holders

Tell dad or grandpa that they are tee-rific with some golf tees holders. My dad is an avid golfer so this is something we will probably get for him. I found two different kinds of these on Amazon, both at very good price points!

4. Trump Mug

I know, I know… I just couldn’t resist! LOL This is a great, great mug, really terrific, everyone agrees. 🙂

There are several different types of these on Amazon, I found this one for only $11!

5. Breakfast in bed

Ummm who wouldn’t want breakfast in bed???  My hubby loves banana pancakes so that’s what he’ll be getting, with fresh coffee in the Trump mug of course. 🙂

6. Brief Case/Weekender Bag

I splurged on one of these from Pottery Barn for a Christmas gift one year and I’m so glad I did because it gets used ALL the time! This style of bag is so versatile it can easily be used as a weekender bag, briefcase, a carry on bag for the plane, nice gym bag, etc… I found a few very reasonably priced bags like this on Amazon – links below.

7. Docking Station

I love this multi-purpose wooden docking station, this one is only $28! It can easily hold everything in dad’s pockets and will help keep him more organized! This is another style of docking station on Amazon for only $28.

8. Engraved Beer Mug With Kid’s Birthdays

How cute is this etched glass beer mug??? I’ll definitely be ordering one of these for my hubby next year after our third LO is born! I found this mug on Etsy from a shop called Black Rock Engraving for only $13.68 plus shipping!

    I absolutely love that docking station! I’ve never seen one like that. Most of them are ugly to look at , but that one has some charm!

    I’m planning to get my husband steak for Father’s Day. He loves it, but since I don’t eat red meat he doesn’t get it often.

      I almost added steak to this list and then didn’t but I think that definitely needs to be added! Men love their meat!

      Thanks! We made it at a pottery studio, I believe it was just the regular acrylic paint.
