Growing up, I always loved Father’s Day. I have lots of siblings, so we always had a great time celebrating my dad each year. And now that Tommy is a dad too, It’s even better. With that being said, mark your calendars! Father’s Day 2022 is Sunday, June 19 and coming up quickly. I hope the timing of this post will be the perfect reminder to start your shopping in time for your gifts in time.
When putting together gift guides for guys, I think through the different hobbies that the men in my life enjoy and how I can surprise them with something they’ll love and appreciate. Tommy has been golfing his entire life (and he’s VERY good too) so he and I have played together a lot since we started dating and have been married. Golf is always a good route for Tommy’s gifts.
Some dads are great cooks and love to grill, so you’ll see fun cooking gifts in this roundup. And of course, the handsome leather and monogrammed bags and wallets that are always good gifts since they’re things guys like having but may not think to buy for themselves. I’ve tried to include something for all types of fathers.
Alright, enough of the chit chat. Let’s get into the gift ideas!
Father’s Day Gift Guide
YETI Hopper M20 Backpack Cooler
This soft backpack cooler from Yeti is super practical. It’s not clunky like most Yeti coolers are and it comes in a few different colors. My friends have this and say they use it all the time for their kid’s sporting events, the beach, boat rides, and I think it’d even be great in the car for road trips. In fact, I may need this for myself for my frozen groceries when we head up to Blowing Rock and take some things with us! These Yeti can coolers are also great gifts if you’re eyeing something a little more affordable.
Bison Leather Shotshell Belt
Such a handsome leather belt. I love the detailing, and the father in your life could probably use a new belt!
Movado Leather Watch
This watch is one of the best gifts I’ve gotten Tommy. He truly loves it and wears it daily. If you’re looking for a really nice gift, this is it.
USA Sunglasses Strap
I got Tommy this USA sunglasses strap one year and he LOVES it. It’s affordable but the needlepoint looks super high end.
USA Leather Golf Head Cover
This leather head cover is right up Tommy’s ally. He loves all things USA, so this leather head cover would be great for him. I like that it’s handsome and understated.
JBL Portable Speaker
This portable speaker is great for clipping to a golf bag, beach bag, or cooler. It’s also a great gift for under $50!
Carhartt Duck Canvas Car Seat Organizer
I got this Carhartt seat organizer for my brother for Christmas this past year and he LOVES it. It’s the perfect gift for a guy who keeps tools, fishing gear, or any miscellaneous stuff in his car at all times. It’s handsome and manly, but will also make you happy since his back seat will be organized. This is only $40!
Tecovas Leather Duffle Bag
This bag is what I’m getting Tommy this year ??. I looked at tons of weekender bags before finding this. It’s the perfect blend of handsome and durable. AND the company is amazing!
Tucson Bison Money Clip
This money clip is practical and handsome. I love the tucson bison leather. This is a great gift for under $50 too.
Personalized Golf Ball Set
Like I mentioned, Tommy loves to play golf so these personalized golf balls make a fun gift. They come in a set of 12 with tees and pencils. Tommy also loves Peter Millar golf shirts so a few shirts (like this and this) paired with a set of golf balls makes a perfect gift.
Portable Pizza Oven
This is one of my favorite gift ideas this year: a portable pizza oven. How cool is this! If the father in your life loves to cook, I’m sure they’d be thrilled to try this out with their kids and friends. I love that it’s portable and can easily be stored in the garage or basement.
A Book about Dad
If you’re looking for a gift to give from your children, this book is be perfect. You can personalize the book with dad’s face and name, making the story all about him. So sweet!
A Gift Card
Not as exciting to give, but VERY exciting to get. I love to receive gift cards because cash or a check generally get saved or spent on something practical. A gift card forces me to spend money on myself for something fun. If your dad loves to travel, get them an AirBnB gift card (these make great wedding gifts too actually). That way you’re actually giving them an experience too! Lowes and REI are great places to gift too.
If the dad in your life likes to laugh, a custom illustration is a GREAT gift. One of my previous co-workers from my Corporate America days does custom illustrations and is extremely talented (and funny!). You can reach out to him through Instagram to commission a piece. He makes them VERY personal to the dad in your life, which is very cool!
