If you forgot (it’s easy to do), Father’s Day is coming up June 19th. It’s a tough holiday. A lot of people go all out for Mother’s Day and then forget Dad. Others don’t even care to make an effort for either holiday at all – but why not reach out this year, really get him something nice? This is the guy who taught you how to ride a bike, how to really throw a football, and which beers are the truly good beers, or… well, you know, fill in the blank. If you’re struggling to come up with a gift for good ol’ Dad, here are 7 Father’s Day gift ideas for all types of father figures.
For the Crafty Dad: The Brooklyn Brew Shop Beer Making Kit
This beer making kit rings up at around $40, so it’s not much of a splurge at all, and if you’ve got a beer-loving, DIY-type dad, go for this one.
It comes with beer making mix (grain, hops, yeast), a gallon glass fermenter, chambered airlock, and glass thermometer along with a handful of other necessary tools. The first batch makes a gallon of beer, and the kit’s easily reusable if your dad gets real into it and finds a new hobby on his hands.
For the Hippie Dad: Beekeeping Kit
This is one seriously unique and creative gift for the dad that loves the outdoors and connecting with nature. Not to mention, the world is in dire need of more bees.
For the Drinker Dad: Moscow Mule Mugs
Looking for a cheap and easy yet undeniably classy gift? These are almost too good to be true at four for ten dollars. You’ll even be able to afford the vodka, lime, and ginger beer to go along with them! There’s nothing like a happy, drunk Dad talkin’ about his glory days.
For the Hard-Working Dad: The Classic Hammock
The cliché dad is immensely hardworking, constantly stressed out, and sort of addicted to work. He gets home and passes out on the lazyboy. Sound familiar? Get him a classic braided rope hammock to string up in the backyard. There’s nothing like fresh air to destress.
For the Sentimental Dad: Reclaimed Wood Picture Frame
It’s Father’s Day. It’s supposed to be a little sentimental and sweet. So you can’t go wrong with getting a picture of you two framed. If you want to go all-out sentimental, go for a sweet photo from your childhood.
For the BBQ-Lovin’ Dad: Barbeque Set
This set has everything your dad could possibly want when it comes to good ol’ grillin’ and barbequin’, not to mention the wooden handles are pretty damn classy and stylish.
You really can’t go wrong with any of these gifts, but if you want something that’s classy, manly, and thoughtful all at the same time, go for the leather wallet. Chances are, your dad’s like most dads and has some worn out, falling apart wallet and could really go for a new one.
Well, there you have it. Cheers to dads and happy shopping!
