Though my own Father is happily with my Mom in heaven, I am married to a wonderful man who has filled the big shoes of being Dad to our 3 children. Although my husband ALWAYS tells us No Gifts, it’s hard not to want to show him some extra appreciation on this one special day a year.
Here is a Father’s Day Gift Guide to help you select the perfect gift for that special father in your life. Father’s Day is June 19th and is this coming up this Sunday. There is still time to order many of these items.
Under Armour Shirts
My husband LOVES these shirts. These shirts are made with a quick-dry fabric and the short sleeve tee is perfect for workouts and casual looks. Crewneck Short sleeves 60% cotton, 40% polyester Machine wash, tumble dry Imported and priced at $18.22. You can find the link here.
As we age, it is fun to find a new sporting event where you can play and involve your family. Reliable and stylish, this paddle is the perfect entry point for any up and coming pickleball player. Wooden paddles are commonly used in many schools and local clubs as excellent value options to bring new players into the game. Encourage your Dad to remain active with this pickle ball set. You can find it here.
This is one of my favorite pictures of my husband, Scott and and our son, Benjamin wearing matching Reyn Spooner Hawaiian shirts. Benjamin, now 27 is wearing his Dad’s shirt…sniffle…and his little shirt is in a time capsule in his closet. Reyes Spooner still makes matching Father/Son shirts and Father/Daughter items, but here is the link to a good selection on Amazon. Wouldn’t this also make a great Grandfather/Grandchild gift?
This smart watch has all the essentials to help you monitor your fitness, keep connected, track your health, and stay safe. Now up to 20 percent faster, with features like Crash Detection and enhanced workout metrics, the Apple Watch is a better value than ever. Currently 10% off on Amazon and priced at $269.00.
For the Cook/Chef
My son would LOVE one of these pellet smokers and highly recommends this particular product. Surprisingly, these smokers come with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity. So if your Dad is a techie and loves to smoke meat, then this is the gift for him. With 1070 square inches of cook space, there’s plenty of room to cook anything from briskets and pork butt to beer can chickens and turkeys. Starting at $1,999+. See their website here.
Personally, we have the Traeger smoker grill (Silverton 629) we purchased from Costco. However, it is out of stock. A good similar one is on Amazon and if ordered quickly, you may get delivery by Sunday. Here is the Traeger Pro Series 780 for $899.00
If your Dad loves cooking or grilling, these red pepper flakes are highly recommended by my son. This Colorado company chooses the absolute best and most flavorful chile peppers from around the world. They focus on flavor first and heat second and each shake bursts with character. For a nice selection of products or sets ranging in price from $11.95 and up, click here.
Like to Read?
Though I do love the feel of a real book, the convenience of having multiple novels in one transportable cover, is rather miraculous. I own a Kindle Paperwhite and I love the fact that I can read it in bright sunshine at the beach. But the newest version is WATERPROOF! So reading in the pool or bathtub is now an option! Click here to see this incredible gift. From: $114.99.
A Unique Gift for the Camper/Hiker
At only 2.2 lbs, this Akka axe is ideal for overnight wilderness trips and fantastic for clearing forest trails. The axe head is hand forged and made from Swedish axe steel. Featuring a long, curved 24″ American hickory handle, this axe has exceptional leverage and power in a lightweight package. For a selection of Hults Bruk axes and hatchets, click here.
For the Best Dressed Man
There is nothing better than a good belt that is designed for everyday use. This full grain belt is cut directly from 12-14 oz. hides. The edges are then hand burnished and waxed, giving the belt a clean finished edge. All leather is sourced 100% from USA tanners and proudly made in the USA. Love the Lifetime Guarantee and 100% Satisfaction Guarantee. In addition they have beautiful wallets, bifold and passport covers Here is their website.
When I was working full time, men were always comparing their watches….perhaps like women with shoes? Nonetheless, watches are the only jewelry most men wear. This IWC Portugieser Chronograph has a stainless steel case, automatic self-winding with a gorgeous green watch face (my husband’s favorite color). Clearly an investment and someday a family heirloom, it is priced at $8,400.00. Click here for their website.
For more IWC watch options, check out the display on Amazon here. This is truly a gift for the Dad who has everything.
Coffee and/or Whiskey?
We own this clear ice ball maker and my husband loves it! If your man drinks whiskey, these clear 2.35 inch ice balls are slow melting producing the best chilled drinks. The key is crystal clear ice, not the typical milky texture. This mold makes two. We have a zip lock bag of these beautiful ice balls in our freezer at all times, ready for an evening cocktail or when we have guests for drinks. Super affordable at $39.99 and you can find it here.
I know we LOVE coffee here at our household and our absolute favorite coffee machine is the Breville Nespresso Creatista machine. The Nespresso Creatista Plus offers freshly brewed coffee as well as delicious authentic espresso. The Creatista can turn into your personal latte maker with the attached milk frother, allowing you to create top quality latte art in your kitchen. As you have heard me mention before, I highly recommend this machine! You can find it here.
For the man who loves coffee and whiskey, Jameson has infused their Irish whiskey with natural cold brew coffee. According to Jameson, each serving is equivalent to about half a shot of espresso. It’s flavored with 100 percent Arabica beans from Brazil and Colombia, with tasting notes touted to be “toasted oak and dark chocolate.” You can either drink it chilled over ice or in a cocktail. I am unable to find it on Amazon, but it appears you can purchase it at Target, Total Wine and check your local grocery store.
For the Golfer
Who needs a sweaty old golf glove when you can get a new one for just $31.99? This comes in an array of colors to match your Dad’s golf outfit and can be found here.
Time to Pamper
The minute we step up our exercise program, the aches and pains also increase. We own one of these massagers and it is really impressive. There are various heads with different intensities for a variety of ailments. This model is here for $48.88.
Still Stumped on the right gift?
Amazon has a very extensive Shopping Events Guide for Father’s Day. It has different categories from The Adventurous Dad to the Techie Dad, so you can peruse it and find that perfect gift for the father in your life. You can see it here.
Many of these items you can purchase online and have delivered straight to your door if you order quickly. Just a reminder that if you do purchase some of these items, I may get a small stipend for sourcing this for you. It will not change or increase your cost. Thank you for clicking on the links to purchase.
Happy Tuesday my sweet friends!
