Father’s Day is right around the corner! Those of us lucky enough to have an amazing father, father figure or father to our children in our lives, know they deserve the world. I pulled together this list of Father’s day gift ideas (and ran them by Jeff for dad approval purposes) in hopes that we can find the perfect gift for every special guy.
It was also important for us to include gifts in every price range. Five of the items below are under $50, because no matter your budget your dad deserves something special.
If you have any ideas to share or want to let us know how we did, please do so in the comments below. We love hearing from you. If you’re still looking for more inspiration click here for more gift guides including Father’s Day Gift Ideas from past years.

New Gym Shorts
Jeff's loving Vuori, he has multiple pairs of their shorts and lives in them during the warm summer months. They are lightweight and breathable, comfortable enough for the gym but stylish enough for everyday wear. Worth the price!
This massage tool helps to relieve soreness while improving circulation and range of motion. After a long day of work whether it’s physically demanding or having to sit in meetings, this tool can provide welcome relief.
Let's be honest, some of us may not be fitting into last year's summer clothes, and it can be a bit defeating. Faherty is a men's clothing brand that tapers their dress shirts so you don’t get the boxy look that we all avoid. With the light feel of linen, the slimming effect of black and the tailored shape this shirt is sure to have him feeling confident and looking great.
Summertime is here and the sun is blazing! This San Diego based company makes quality polarized sunglasses really affordable (the pair pictured is $25.) They have all the classic silhouettes and you can customize the colors or patterns to fit any style. Because of the price point he won’t have to worry if they get lost or damaged like some of the more pricey pairs but they offer the same eye protection!
If the dad in your life is a part-time mixologist this cocktail shaker is a great gift idea! It’s insulated so your drink stays cold until you’re ready for it and there is no condensation to worry about. The lid is leak-proof and shatter-proof so you they won’t have to fiddle with a pint glass either. I suggest including lemon drop ingredients with this gift ;)
I know this is a big ticket item but if your dad is an avid coffee drinker you will be the favorite child for life. I use this machine daily and can’t recommend it highly enough. It makes 11 beverages and can be customized to the liking of any coffee aficionado. Added bonus is anytime you visit you’ll get to use it too!
If your dad is a bookworm, consider a gift card to his local bookstore, a digital gift card to bookshop.org (a way to support small shops and get books in digital formats), or a collectors edition/unique version of his favorite book. If he enjoys world building books Dune is a great read and will be made into a major motion picture later this year.
We have so much fun cooking together in our family, this kit makes challenging dishes easy with everything you need and step by step instructions. We made soup dumplings, they also have BBQ smoking kits that are perfect for summertime. If your dad enjoys spending time in the kitchen, helping him with a fun new recipe is sure to make memories and he can use the tools over and over again.
Jeff comes from a big, very competitive family of self proclaimed lawn game champions. A set of horseshoes, badminton or corn hole can keep the whole family entertained during those long days of summer- believe me. Give him this set and the chance to “show everyone how it’s done.”
I love how versatile a neutral pair of sneakers can be. This pair gets top ratings for comfort and style. Veja is a sustainable and fair trade brand too, so you can feel just as good about your purchase as he does.
So many of us are planning vacations this year and what better travel accessory for long plane rides than a pair of quality headphones? This pair is noise cancelling, wireless, and under $130. He’s going to be thanking his lucky stars for you when he’s sitting 2 rows away from an infant on his next flight.
For the experienced home chef and pizza loving dad consider a KettlePizza set. These sets come with everything you need to turn your gas or charcoal grill into a pizza oven. Jeff’s brother has one and loves it!
Maybe its time to upgrade your dad's portable speaker? This speaker can be split to give a surround sound effect. It's also water resistant so he won't have to worry when he takes it with him fishing, to the pool, or out working in the yard. Use code: KW67 for 65% off
