Father’s Day is coming on Sunday, June 16! It’s time to start thinking about how to make all the fathers (and father figures) in your life feel loved and appreciated.
While treating your pops to breakfast in bed is a classic for a reason, Father’s Day is also a good opportunity to give him a gift that he wouldn’t buy himself.
Here are seven great gift ideas that your dad may enjoy:
1. Beard Trimmer
Jonathan Van Ness on “Queer Eye” will be so proud when your dad kicks off a new grooming regimen with a snazzy new beard trimmer. We like the WAHL Stainless Steel Lithium Ion Rechargeable Hair Clipper ($59.97), which is beloved for its precision hair removal as well as its long battery life.
2. Beer Stein
Here’s a unique, customizable gift your dad will love: a beer stein ($15.55 plus $7.75 shipping) engraved with his children’s or grandchildren’s birth dates. Now he can enjoy a nice cold one while he reflects on his pride and joy (and their great gifting abilities).
If your dad is anything like mine, a new history book always makes for a good present. The New York Times bestseller “Accidental Presidents: Eight Men Who Changed America,” by Jared Cohen, is 55% off in hardcover on Amazon Prime, now totaling $13.39. (You can also check out Amazon’s top fiction bestsellers, if that’s more your dad’s thing.)
If your dad does a lot of yard work, an electric chainsaw can be a great gift to make the chores go more quickly. We recommend the Makita Electric Chainsaw ($239.95) — those logs in the backyard won’t know what hit ’em!
Your mom will be so impressed when Dad starts strutting his stuff in this woodsy, spicy fragrance from Dolce & Gabbana. He doesn’t have to know that you nabbed it for 40% off on Amazon, where it is currently $39 with Amazon Prime.
Looking for a pricier gift for which you and your siblings can split the cost? If Dad loves to fish or spend time in the great outdoors, consider gifting him a single-person kayak. We recommend the Ocean Prowler One-Person Fishing Kayak ($889.99), which has room for tackle boxes as well as cup holders.
7. Wireless Earbuds
Sometimes the best gift you can give Dad is the gift of tuning out everything else. Consider splurging on wireless earbuds so he can jam out to his favorite tunes in peace. Our top picks are the Jabra Elite 65t wireless earbuds ($169.99), which work both for music and phone calls, and have five hours of battery life.
