Father’s Day Gift Ideas for Every Kind of Dad

Father’s Day Gift Ideas for Every Kind of Dad, image of a dad throwing his son in the air in a playful way.

Need help finding the perfect gift for Father's Day? We have something that’s sure to put a smile on his face.

We get it—dads aren’t always so easy to shop for. Maybe they don’t need anything, maybe they buy whatever they want for themselves. Or maybe they tell you not to get them a gift because your company is enough. Sweet!

But this year especially, as we all look forward to getting together with loved ones in person again, we know you want to make Father’s Day special. So we’ve gathered unique Father’s Day gifts that will work for all types of dads: brand-new and adult-kid dads, grilling and bartending dads, tech-loving, pet-loving, home-loving dads, and more.

Whether you’re looking for something for your own father, your husband or partner, a close paternal figure—or even yourself (of which we heartily approve!)—you’re sure to find something perfect for the dad, or dads, in your life.

New Baby Dad

If you have a first-time father in your life, it’s practically a requirement that he’s gifted a Father’s Day t-shirt that declares his dadhood loud and proud.

Also perfect for a first Father’s Day? A baby tee that declares the love. This one is made with 100% GOTS-certified organic cotton and eco-friendly dyes, so it’s easy on baby skin, and it comes with a bonus stroller toy that repeats the sentiment.
