Father's Day is right around the corner and it's time to not only start thinking about a special gift for your dad, uncle, grandpa or brother who's celebrating his very first as a parent but also purchasing that gift. Dads do so much day in and day out, and it's our turn to express our love by giving them a gift they can use and one that shows our appreciation for them. We've curated a Fathers Day gift guide to help you select the perfect gift that's unique for every type of dad. So mark your calendar, Fathers day is Sunday, June 19th this year and be prepared when he claims that he doesn't need anything special, you'll be able to give him a gift he's sure to love and celebrate just how much he means to you!
For the Dads That Enjoy Golfing
My husband loves to golf and these are some of my favorite items to get dads that enjoy the game of golf.
This Travis Mathew polo is great for golf AND everyday wear. It washes up like a dream and is so soft and lightweight. It will quickly become his favorite and is available here on Nordstrom.com.
This personalized photo divot tool, ball marker and clip can be found here. It's the perfect gift for the golfing dad in your life.
These golf balls benefits are: longer distance with consistent flight, very low long game spin and penetrating trajectory and increased drop and stop short game control. In other words, my husband loves these! Anything to improve their golf score and you can find them here.

Happy Father's Day!
Father's Day, like Mother's Day is a time to reflect on the wonderful dads out there. I was so lucky to be raised by a caring and loving dad, married a wonderful man and together we raised two terrific sons who are outstanding fathers themselves. So, on this day, I want them all to know the great mentoring they are doing in raising their families and how much I love each one of them!
For The Dads That Enjoy Grilling:
This was a Christmas gift from me to my hubby and he loves using this grill probe. We all love it as well, as our food is grilled with perfection. It's reasonably priced and can be found here on Amazon.
For the Dads That Enjoy Beer:
Both my husband and my two sons enjoy brewing their own beer. Here's a starter kit from More Beer to get the special guy in your life. There are many beers to choose from: pale ale, stouts, IPA, etc.
For the Sentimental Dads:
What I love about this puzzle is that it can be personalized with not only pictures of their children/grandchildren but you can make it as easy or difficult as you want by choosing how many pieces you'd like the puzzle to be. For instance, you can choose either a 60 piece puzzle for younger kids or 1014 piece puzzle for older kids. This will be on my gift giving list for sure this Father's Day and it's a gift that all will enjoy putting together. You can order it directly from Shutterfly.

For The Dads That Enjoy Sports
We have been season ticket holders for the Arizona Cardinals for 28+ years so naturally my thoughts go to what can be used tailgating or around our home to show how much we enjoy the Cardinals. These chairs come in many different team names and what sports dad wouldn't love them? You can use them at your kids/grandkids sports games as well.
You can find them here on Amazon.
Following the sports theme for the dad that loves sports, how about a cornhole game set? Again, you can order these in most of your guys' favorite sports team. Who doesn't love a competitive or friendly game of cornhole in your backyard.? These can be ordered here from Amazon as well.
This was a gift to my husband from the kids/grandkids a few years back and we love it. It's a 10 inch digital photo frame from Skylight that all the kids can upload their images to and we can all enjoy the memories! Easy peasy to set up and can be ordered here.
To all the dads out there - enjoy your special day with your loved ones!
I’m deeply grateful for having had an amazing father who loved each of his children unconditionally! His wisdom, love and the many lessons I’ve learned has always been my guide in raising our two grown children and continue to inspire me as I bond with our five grandchildren. I miss him tremendously as he is no longer here to celebrate with. I’m also very blessed to have an amazing husband who in every way shows the same unconditional love and patience to our family and is the very best father!! The guidance our son and son-in-law have been shown is evident as we watch them be the best daddy’s to their young children. I'm so proud of the job their doing and love them deeply.
I hope you all have a wonderful day celebrating the special Dads in your life this Father’s Day!!
For the new Dad:
Show Dad how much you care with this little message of love! Saying “I love you” with the help of The Very Hungry Caterpillar, by Eric Carle makes a great gift for a new father or the father of a young child. This bright and colorful book is the perfect way to tell the person you call “dad” how much you appreciate him. For fast and free shipping purchase here on Amazon.
For the Dad that loves a good foot massage:
Help dad relieve his tired and sore feet with this foot massager! He can use it while watching TV, reading, at work or just relaxing. The foot massager has heat, compression, 5 different pressure settings which is great for those with plantar fasciitis or chronic pain, it also comes with washable foot liners and 2 wireless remotes. Before long, it will become part of his nightly ritual!! You can purchase at this link on Amazon.
For the Dad that loves the outdoors:
I bought these for my husband for Christmas and he LOVES them!! They’re lightweight and waterproof and he loves the amount of cushioning and the amount of support they have! This is the boot for every hiking enthusiast or for the dad that works outdoors and they can be purchased at this link.
For the Sentimental Dad or your Grandfather:
The perfect gift to show Dad how much you love and appreciate all he’s done for you. I love that this is laser engraved and a natural wood handle. You can have it engraved with any message you want!! It’s a Father’s Day gift that makes for a usable keepsake and will be cherished forever! My daughter bought this for her Papa and thanked him for "building memories with her."

I think dads are kind of underrated in our culture. If you think about it, they are always the ones who are often made fun of, so I think Father's Day is a good day to let them know how much we appreciate them, no joke!
For the Traveling Dad
For the dad constantly on-the-go, I suggest the Apple AirTag and the Apple leather loop to hold it. The Apple AirTag and loop are perfect for finding those keys for dads. They can use the Apple "Find My'' app to track them down if they get left at the security gate or in the pocket of the suitcase. They are available from Apple.com or here and here on Amazon.
This wallet from Amazon is a great way to carry everything a dad needs and to eliminate the "fat" wallets of the past. One side is a money clip for cash and the other side will hold an ID and a couple of bank cards. It's slim enough for the front pocket or a suit pocket which is more secure than carrying in the rear pocket. I suggest adding one of the AirTags from above so dad will be able to find his wallet too. I found these AirTag cases on Amazon.
I highly suggest the Scott Horvath series of books by Brad Thor for the dad in your life. My husband who was not a reader, became a reader after stumbling upon one of his books at the airport while traveling. In fact, he quickly went through the entire series within a few months. These thriller books are all stories about the central character, Scott Horvath, who is a counter-terrorism operative (think Jack Bauer of the TV series 24). The latest one, Rising Tiger,
will be released on July 5th, and if ordered now will arrive on the release date. However, you can start with the first in the series, Lions of Lucerne, and have it by Father's Day.
