Father's Day Gift Ideas

Coming up with great Fathers Day gift ideas can be a challenge year after year! 

Let's face it.  Dad's don't usually get excited about a tie or pair of socks any more, even if they put on a good face and pretend it was just what they wanted. ;)

Surely we can do better than that, no matter what age we are or whatever budget we have to work with!

Some folks are really creative and like to make most of their gifts.  There is absolutely nothing wrong with that, and often homemade Father's Day gifts are appreciated more than a doo-dad that's been "made in China" no matter how cool it seems.

One of my dad's favorite treats is homemade eclairs bursting at the seams with freshly made custard and lots of chocolate flowing over the top and running down the sides.

I'm drooling just thinking about them!

My sister is a genius at making these delectable goodies and has made them for my dad on many special occasions, including Father's Day.  It's always a winner!

I know!  You probably want the recipe now, too.  Don't worry.  I'll get it from her and add it to the site with a link to it at the bottom of the page in the next week or so.  If you just can't wait that long, you'll find some pretty easy recipes at Taste of Home that will do the trick nicely. 

If you want to create a Father's Day craft with the kids or design some other homemade gift, you'll find other ideas at the end of this page too. 

But now let's talk about some different Fathers Day gift ideas for those who aren't as DIY or don't live near their Dad and would like to buy a Father's Day gift online.  No problemo!

It's often difficult to know what to get for your father or husband for Father's Day. This is especially true for those men who are hard to buy for because they seem to have everything.

It's times like those when we need to put our heads together and come up with some different Father's Day ideas.

  • Magazines - I always like the gift of magazines because it is something they can enjoy repeatedly throughout the year. At Magazines.com you'll find a wide selection.

    Choose magazines from fishing, hunting, sports, racing, news, hobbies and more. There is bound to be something that would interest your dad!

  • Chocolates - Of course, I would always suggest a chocolate gift. Are you surprised I didn't put it first? :-) Whether you make your own (there's plenty of recipes here) or choose something to have delivered, you can hardly go wrong with chocolate!

  • Gift Baskets - Father's Day gift baskets are a great idea. They don't have to be just candy baskets although you can go that route. You can also choose from baskets filled with all different types of gifts like, coffee, gardening tools, sports themes, etc. You can even build your own unique selection.

  • Roadside Assistance - It may sound like a weird gift to you, but I think paying for a roadside assistance package for your dad is an excellent Fathers Day gift idea! For less than a hundred bucks, you can be sure that your Dad has someone to call in case of emergency 24/7 for the next year. Sign him up for the Roadside Assistance from the Good Sam Club.

  • Coffee Package - If your dad's a big coffee drinker, a great fathers day gift idea is a gourmet coffee package. In fact, how about signing him up for a Coffee of the Month Club? He'll love it all year round.

  • Guy Gadgets - My husband loves gadgets of all sorts!  If you have a father or husband that fits that category, you should definitely check out the fathers day ideas at Swiss Army and the Sportsman's Guide.  These are two great places to find one of those "boy toys" that are just right for some fellows.  I know from very personal experience. ;)

Well, I hope that's a good start to giving you some good Fathers Day gift ideas. I'm sure you'll find something that is just right for your Dad.

My dad's Father's Day gift is already picked out, purchased, and ready to be hand delivered this year! I can't wait.

Happy Father's Day!
