He’s the one that taught you how to ride a bike, how to tie your tie, how to fill out a tax return, and he’s also the guy who got in the passenger seat the first time you drove a car. So, even though his jokes may make you cringe, and he has no idea who your favorite singer is, with cries of, "This isn’t music, it’s just noise," he deserves to be reminded that we do appreciate everything he’s done, and continues to do, for us. Father’s Day falls on Sunday, June 16, this year, and if you’re still wondering what to get your "old man" as a gift, we’ve got a few suggestions for you.
Keep reading to find out what our top 10 Father’s Day gift ideas are for the dad who has everything.
1. A sleek wallet
Whether your dad is the kind of guy who has a credit card, a driver’s license, and a loyalty card to his favorite coffee spot, or if he has a bank card for every day of the week, his I.D., a library card, and a membership card for something that even he can’t remember the origin of, a Secrid wallet has him covered. At just 21 millimeters thick, the wallet is the perfect size to sit almost unnoticed in your pocket, and the metal card protector can hold up to six cards.
With a simple press of a button, the cards all pop up and are easy to remove and replace. The case has a pocket for six further cards, as well as space for paper money and receipts. If your dad needs a protector for more than six cards, there is a version available with two card protectors, as well.
2. The ultimate grill
Summer is upon us, and as such, barbecues are being planned, and grills are out. Dads tend to pride themselves on their barbecuing abilities, and there’s nothing more satisfying to them than all their pals standing around the grill holding a cold beer, nodding in approval at how well the grilling is going. This is the perfect moment for your dad to explain to his friends that his grill is the best of all the grills, followed by a lengthy, almost scientific explanation as to why. Enter the George Foreman Indoor/Outdoor Grill.
Not only can he cook up to 15 portions for optimum food prep on this electric grill, but he can adjust the heat to give everyone a mouthwatering meal to order. Added to which, there’s the all-important cup holder for his drink, and if it starts to rain, he can just take the intricate grilling operation to the kitchen with no adverse affect to his cooking.
3. The coolest pint glass
While dad is busy grilling, he’s going to need a cool beverage to sustain him through the grueling task of cooking the best barbecue anyone has ever eaten, and the last thing he’s going to want is for his beer to get warm during the process. FREEZE Cooling Pint Glass is the perfect solution. The plastic walls of the glasses contain a cooling gel that maintains a consistent temperature for hours, so all your dad needs to do is pop it in the freezer for a couple of hours in the morning, and then once he’s ready to enjoy his afternoon in the sun, he can rest assured that his beer will stay cold.
4. An electric razor
When a father teaches his son to shave, it’s a big moment for them both. A father has the realization that his boy is now becoming a man, and a son starts to see adulthood on the horizon. A classic wet shave is often the preferred method for those who keep a fresh look, but in the morning when you’re in a rush to get up, get ready, and get to work, there just isn’t time, and a rushed wet shave can result in a rather painful experience. Thankfully, electric shavers are getting better at producing a close shave. With brands such as Philips, Braun, and Panasonic producing some reliable, long-lasting models, there are plenty to choose from.
5. Shaving products
It doesn’t matter if you wet shave or use an electric razor, pre- and post-shave care is a big part of the process. There are numerous shaving products on the market that help regenerate the skin, keeping you looking fresh and youthful. If you’re thinking of getting your dad a razor or an electric shaver, it’s definintlely worth considering adding some little extras to the gift. Grooming Lounge has a wide range of grooming and shaving products available, and as it’s Father’s Day coming up, they are offering a 20% discount on all of their products!
6. A beard bib
We’ve talked about razors and shaving products, but what about the bearded fathers out there? Well, look no further. For every shaving product, there is a beard grooming product, and this one is perfect for helping your dad with his beard trim. The beard bib is almost a double gift; it’s not just for dad, as you can be sure your mom will be thankful for it, as well.
The beard bib fits around the neck and then attaches to the mirror. As the wearer starts to trim their beard, the hair is caught in the bib and can be disposed of properly—rather than lining the sink. Mom will be relieved when she’s getting ready in the morning that she doesn’t have to compete with the leftovers of dad’s beardscaping!
7. Beard accessories
While the clean-shaven man has pre-shave cleanser and post-shave moisturiser, the bearded gentleman has oils, balms, brushes, combs, and even shampoos—all designed to maintain a tidy, clean beard from the well-defined, neat beards, all the way to the bushiest, lumberjack beards. Beard Brand has been building an impressive online presence over the last few years, and the founder, Eric Bandholz, created the company to foster a culture of pride in male grooming. If you’re looking for products for yourself, or as a gift for Father’s Day, Beard Brand has everything you want, need, and didn’t even know you needed.
8. A heavy-duty travel mug
We talked earlier about how vital it is to ensure dad’s beer stays cold in the summer, but what about his coffee? Whether he’s doing the school run, on his way to work, or going on a hike, ensuring his coffee stays hot is a must. The YETI Rambler Mug is perfect for all scenarios. The double-vacuum design ensures that a cup of coffee will stay hot until the final sip. Additionally, the mug is relatively light at 14oz, and the creators pride themselves at having designed one of the most durable and over-engineered travel mugs on the market. If your old man is an avid hiker, climber, and adventurer, there are a wide range of products on the YETI website that I’m sure he’d love.
9. A hiking backpack
This particular product is in a higher price range, but with the Topo Klettersack backpack being both incredibly durable and multi-purpose, your dad is sure to to get a lot of use out of it. This stylish backpack is perfect for anyone who enjoys long hikes in rugged terrain, and the material—1000D Cordura Nylon—is thick and strong enough for most environments. It has numerous pockets and zips designed to carry any equipment one might need on an excursion, but additionally, the bag can hold day-to-day items, such as a 15-inch laptop, so he can also use it for work or as a carry-on when traveling.
10. A glamping adventure
You’ve bought dad his travel mug, you gave him a durable backpack, so why not complete the present with the gift of glamping for an unforgettable adventure? With so many incredible destinations and unique experiences available, a Glamping Hub gift card is easy to give and exciting to receive. Help your dad get away from the grind of his day-to-day for a long weekend or a vacation, where he can enjoy a once-in-a-lifetime travel experience!
