Father's Day 2021, Gift Idea's

With Father's Day right around the corner and for the women in our lives that read this blog, I decided to throw together a list of Father's Day Gift Ideas. I scoured the depth's of Amazon to curate a list of go-to dad gifts. I caution my readers, especially my wife, this is not a shopping list of things I want, it is merely a list that should get the ideas flowing and hopefully help answer the age-old question, "What do I get for someone that already has it all?"

(P.S. There is still time to order from Amazon to get your dad gifts by father's day)

I decided to break the list down into some different categories. I felt like it will help identify the different types of dads out there in the world.

Let us begin!



What dad doesn't enjoy food? What dad doesn't enjoy eating food. Well if the "dad" in your life fall's into this category, I came up with a few ideas.

Your "dad" person may be the master of the grill so maybe it's time for an upgrade!

Pictured above is one of the many Char-Broil Brand grill's. Highly reputable and durable, a Char-Broil grill may be the way to go.

Is your "dad" looking for something a little different? Maybe he would be interested in smoking meat, rather than the traditional grilling of said meat. Take a look at the picture below.

Still can't decide on either a smoker or a traditional grill? Check out one of them fancy combination setups they sell now...



Dads love technology. Give dad the gift of something techie. I gathered a few different ideas to showcase and get those creative juices flowing.

Is the dad in your life a reader? Does he like technology? We'll mark off both of those ideas with one gift! The Kindle paperwhite is a great way for dad to enjoy his time reading. Especially those baby books from my previous post!

Serious dads love to brag about stats! Help him track his movements with either of the two products listed below! Get dad moving and track his steps with the Fitbit, or for more adventurous dads, hook him up with the Garmin GPS watch!


Dads may not always be the snappiest dressers, but sometimes the women in their lives will help out!

Professional dads that work in the white-collar industries will always appreciate fancy socks. Hook your guy up with a sock subscription so that he will always have a matching pair, even after the washing machine and dryer "lose" that singular sock.

After professional dad, there are of course US casual dads. Gift him the fancy footwear of the 21st century! You can never go wrong with a pair of crocs! When the going gets tough, the tough flip those crocs into 4wheel drive mode!

And then there is the iconic dad shoe. Don't believe me? Google it! White New Balance sneakers are the go-to footwear for the serious dads of all dads! Need to cut the grass? Throw on those New Balance! Heading to the mall? New Balance! Out to dinner? You guessed it right, New Balance!

And of course, no dad is completed without a solid set of stunner shades. I highly recommend Oakley's. Oakley has a pair for every single type of dad out there! From casual dad to professional dad. From nerdy dad to tactical dad. Oakley has a product for them!


Every dad has to drink something to stay happy and hydrated! Check out the products below!

Yeti brand containers have become increasingly popular over the last few years, due in part to their durability and ability to keep things cold (or hot). Give the gift of hydration to your dad and help him be trendy at the same time.

Quite possibly one of the most time-honored gifts for dad is a really great mug for him to enjoy his morning coffee. The cool thing about coffee mugs is the fact that they are one of the most customizable products out there. Anywhere from pictures, to quotes, to logos can be added to these bad boys.


This is a really easy concept here. Football, Baseball, Basketball, Soccer, Bocce Ball, Squash, Golf, Cricket, Hunting, Fishing... you name the sport and you'll find a dad that watches it, plays it, idealizes it.

This topic is easy. Here are some recommendations...

This particular list could quite literally go on and on, but I will save you the headache.

Bottom line, we care more about the thought behind our day. If we happen to receive gifts, awesome, but we want those to be thoughtful too! We might have tough outer shells to keep up with appearances, but a nice, thoughtful surprise truly goes a long way with us!

I hope my list helps spark some creativity or guides someone in the right direction!

Most importantly, Happy Fathers Day to all my brand new dads and the seasoned vet dads out there!
