With Father’s Day on the way, it’s time to start looking for gifts for the dad in your life. Whether he’s your dad or just a paternal figure in your life, presents are a great way to show appreciation for this guy. Unfortunately, many dads can be hard to shop for, as they aren’t always upfront about their wants. If you’re having trouble shopping for the father in your life, here are a few ideas to help you out. 

New Yard Equipment

One thing that many dads will appreciate is new yard equipment. For many men, working in the yard provides a sense of purpose and peace, so days off consist of mowing, edging, and trimming. Because dads spend so many hours outside, new lawn care equipment will help them feel appreciated all summer long. If you have a large budget, items like lawnmowers, weed whackers, and electric shrub trimmers will turn the dad in your life into an excited little boy. With a gift like this, you’ll instantly lose sight of your father as he rushes off to test his new toy on the nearest unsuspecting patch of grass. 

If your budget isn’t as large, don’t worry; there are still plenty of great yard tools for you. For people on a budget, stationary tools that last longer get you more for your money. A tool like a multi position ladder or a new high-capacity wheelbarrow will make everyday jobs around the yard easier. If the dad in your life has gardening interests, new flowers, mulch, or pavers are great gifts on a low budget. Whether your father likes to garden or values his pristine lawn, some new yard tools will brighten Father’s Day. 

Personalized Gear

Another gift option for the father in your life is personalized gear. Many dads tend to use leftover items rather than having special things set aside for themselves. For instance, they don’t have their own coffee mug or beer glass; they just use whatever’s leftover in the cabinet. Getting your dad personalized gear can show your appreciation for who he is and help him feel important in your life. If he’s a coffee drinker, a monogrammed insulated tumbler will keep his drink warm for hours while he’s working. If he likes a bit of flair to his outfits, personalized cufflinks or belt buckles make a great addition to any wardrobe. 

Many fathers love seeing updates on their family regularly. They have pictures on the walls, on their phones, and on the fridge to remind them of what’s important. If the dad in your life is close with his family, a family photo session or personalized photo calendar will be a touching gift that he’ll remember for years. Giving your dad something he can hold on to will mean the world to him long after Father’s Day is gone. By gifting your father some personalized merch, you can show your appreciation for who he is and what he likes.  

Bar and Grill Accessories

Finally, allowing your father to feed his passions will help him feel appreciated on Father’s Day. The old cliche “the fastest way to a man’s heart is through his stomach” is true for many dads, as they love grilling on a sunny summer day. If your dad loves spending his summers outside flipping meat on the grill, some new grilling tools would make a great gift. Many hardware stores sell grill sets, which include all the necessary utensils for serious barbequing. If the dad in your life loves hanging out by the grill, consider one of these grill sets. 

If your father isn’t much of a griller, bar sets make a great indoor gift that he can enjoy year-round. Whether he’s a wine connoisseur or just likes a cold beer, a tabletop bar kit will elevate his evening libations to the next level. These kits are available online or in many department stores. Whether your dad likes to eat or sip a cold cocktail, giving him the tools for his craft will make his day brighter. 

Overall, Father’s Day is a day to spoil your favorite paternal figures. With these gifts, you’ll make memories that last a lifetime.
