Not Your Average Father’s Day Gift Guide

Father’s Day is right around the corner (Sunday, June 18 for those of you who it sneaked up on) and it’s time to start thinking of a great gift for dad if you haven’t already bought one. Let’s be honest, we’re all procrastinators here. So instead of scouring Amazon Prime at the very last minute looking for a gift with same-day delivery, I’ve tried to save you the trouble by compiling a list of some fun and interesting gifts any dad would love.

For the Tech-Guru Dad

Portable, wireless bluetooth speaker, $28
This speaker makes a great gift for the music-loving dad! Bring this to the beach/pool, stick it in the shower or use it around the house — it’s water resistant! My boyfriend has this speaker and loves it, so I highly recommend.

Bluetooth headphones, $30
These innovative headphones have magnets that allow you to attach the earbuds and wear them around your neck when you’re not using them.

Virtual reality headset, $22
Compatible with both iOS and Android at a price you can’t beat!

Pocket lightning charger, $50
For the dad whose phone is always dead.

For the Well-Traveled Dad

Leather passport case | $55 | $21
Because, duh.

Luggage tag | $38 | $10
The pricier one has a preppy, nautical vibe, while the inexpensive one adds a pop of color that makes luggage easier to spot (we forget how helpful this is until we’re at the airport searching for our checked bag among 100 other black suitcases).

Fossil 1954 for Men travel-size cologne, $25
The perfect size to pack in a carry-on!


Corkboard world map, $40
A fun place to stick photos and memories from past travels.

For the Dad with a Goofy Sense of Humor


Do You Live Here Doormat, $20
Sure to get a laugh every time, or be a conversation piece at the very least.

Drunk, Stoned or Stupid: A Party Game, $16
Perhaps an even more interesting game than Cards Against Humanity.

Periodic Table Mug, $14
A perfect mug for the science geek.

For the Preppy Dad

Seersucker tie, $60
A summer wardrobe staple.


Garment-dyed ball cap, $40
A modern take on a classic piece. Available in four colors.

Laptop bag, $43
Basically a casual briefcase.

Golf towel, $32
Is your dad even preppy if he doesn’t own something Vineyard Vines?

For the Dad Who Loves a Good Drink

Globe whiskey decanter, $50
For the dad who loves a drink and travel. Make it a set with this pair of etched globe glasses, $29!

Leather flask, $23
You never know when you might need a drink. Make sure your dad is always prepared.

A classic, modern set without breaking the bank.

Ya know, so his drink doesn’t get watery.

Rope coasters, $21
Stylish and functional.

Handmade koozie, starting at $15

A fun T-shirt for dad to relive his glory days — hehe.
