Posted in Blog, Family

Father’s Day is right around the corner.  Do you have gifts purchased for the special dad in your life?

Check out these Father’s Day gift ideas.

I may earn a small commission for my links to any products or services from this website. This comes at no additional cost to you.  Links in this post will take you directly to the website associated with that link.


Grunt Style

Great for dad’s who love: Military, outdoors, golf, motorsports, America

Graphic tees and other clothing items.  Check out their Beer Guarantee: “Everything from Grunt Style is guaranteed for life. Yup. Everything. For any reason. Including tears, holes, loose threads, beer stains – even blood stains from defending the American Flag.” (New kids collection has a Root Beer guarantee- see site for details)  First time customers get a discount.  A wheel will pop up on the website that let’s you spin to see what discount you receive.  If you want your order by Father’s Day, I would call to place the order and do it ASAP.  Holidays are very busy for them and some items may take longer than others.  They won’t ship until the whole order comes in so calling is your best bet if you’re in a hurry.




Man Crates

Great for dad’s who love: grilling, alcohol, DIY projects, sports, food, and anything else manly

This site is the ultimate place to pick up a gift for your man.  Crates or boxes include things like exotic meats jerky, knife making, personalized barware, pizza grilling, beard wrangling, golf, sriracha, bass fishers, hot sauce making, wine making, hunting, new dads, Nascar, motorcycles, steaks, sausage making, and so much more.  Some items actually come in a sealed wooden crate and a crowbar is provided to open it.  Other items come in special boxes or just a plain box.  Each item has a description of how the gift will arrive.  Have a husband who loves puzzles, challenges, or just thinking hard?  Try the puzzle box.  Uncover clues to open the box with a gift card inside  redeemable at tons of online retailers inside.  Once the puzzle is solved, the puzzle box can be used as a locked box with keyless entry.  I ordered my husband the folding pocket knife kit a couple years ago.  He absolutely loved it.  It was great to give him something that was completely unexpected and unique.



Pier One




Great for dad’s who love: Liquor

Decanters or decanter sets are perfect for dad’s who love whiskey, brandy, scotch, or more.  I’ve listed 4 different links to find the decanter that best matches the guy in your life.  I have bought my husband two of these.  First, the USS Constitution decanter from Lenox.  My husband accidentally busted it.  So, I bought this decanter set (pictured) from Pier 1 and we keep it at our butler’s pantry.  Unfortunately, it looks like this exact one is no longer available but plenty of others to choose from.



Subscription Boxes

Great for all dads.

Give a gift that dad can receive each month or several times a year.  Check out this website that lists tons of subscription boxes by category.

Nerdy Dad’s

Fashion Dad’s

Fit Dad’s




Great for dad’s who love: grilling

Wood Chip Grill Set- Smoke meat on a gas or charcoal grill, stainless steel smoker box, BBQ thermometer, 3 flavors of smoking chips, instructions, recipes, and hickory smoked sea salt.

Ancestry DNA Kit

I got this as a gift for my husband earlier this year.  He loved finding out about his ancestry.  If your guy is into family history or doesn’t know his family background, this gift is perfect.

Down to the wire and need a gift quick?  Amazon Prime offers free 2-day shipping on tons of items (no minimum required).

We have been Prime members for years and use it constantly.  No more lugging heavy dog food from the store, my grocery cart isn’t filled up by big packages of toilet paper or paper towels, I don’t have to get my son out of the car to run in for one item, just about anything available on the site.  You also get thousands of free movies and tv episodes you can watch.  If you love to read, you can borrow Kindle books to read on most devices.  (Make sure the item is indicated as “Prime” to receive the 2-day shipping.  Not all items are included.)  In the last couple of weeks, we’ve ordered a $28 weed eater (recommended by a friend), cookbook, udder cream lotion (great for dry skin), bracelet, and knife sharpener.

Here’s a link to get a free 30-day trial to see what i’m talking about.

Even if you can’t spend big money on a gift, you can still make Father’s Day special for the men in your life.  Going out of your way to just be thoughtful is the best present of all.

  • Try breakfast in bed.  I will be making my biscuits and gravy for my husband… his favorite.

  • Letting him sleep in or take a nap.

  • Take him to a place that he enjoys that he doesn’t get to go to a lot.

  • Have a picnic, movie day, or other themed day your husband would enjoy at home.
