Perfect Father’s Day Gifts For Every Type Of Dad

This Father’s Day, instead of being boring and buying your dad new socks or a set of mugs, why not get him something thoughtful, unique and unexpected? Maybe for past Father’s Day celebrations, you’ve showed up with mundane gifts that you didn’t put much thought into. Perhaps this is the year you should get inspired and make up for years of uninspired, lackluster Father’s Day gifts. In order to give a thoughtful and unique gift, however, you must think about what your dad truly loves. Before you decide what the perfect Father’s Day gift for him is, think about what type of dad he is. Whether he’s the dad who loves music, travel, golf, fashion, or the great outdoors – we’ve got you covered. Below is a list of the perfect Father’s Day gifts for every type of dad:

The Dad Who Loves Music

Does your dad love rock n’ roll? If you want to get him a unique gift that symbolizes his love for music, check out Lost Apostle jewelry and choose something from their rock n’ roll collection. Lost Apostle’s exclusive designs are more than accessories – they’re symbols that represent what the wearer loves most. This masculine (and unisex) jewelry line is known for its trendy, thick chains and one-of-a-kind, handmade pendants that epitomize the music industry. For example, your dad will love wearing a pair of headphones around his neck in jewelry form, and Lost Apostle’s headphones pendant is available in both silver and gold. They also have guitar necklaces, microphone necklaces, and even cassette tapes as a pendant. The handmade pendants are created using the 6,000-year-old Lost Wax method, which always promises extraordinary results and creates fine jewelry that will stand the test of time.

The Dad Who Loves Relaxing

Very few things are more relaxing than a nice hot shower with comforting-smelling body wash and soap. LUSH handmade soaps and shower gels has a ‘Dear John’ collection perfect for dads because of its cozy, nostalgic scent which is a blend of cedarwood, clove and coriander. The scent is slightly rugged and manly, but it’s also warm and soothing. The LUSH ‘Dear John’ body wash is a soothing, smoky body wash filled with a masculine fragrance that’s warm and cozy, and it’s handmade using fresh ingredients. Clove bud, cedarwood and coriander combine to give a spicy, herbal scent that livens the senses and mimics the aroma of the great outdoors. If you want to get dad a kit, the ‘Dear John’ collection also has shampoo bars, colognes and bath bombs in addition to the shower gel.

The Dad Who Loves Vacationing

Anyone who loves to sight-see needs a quality pair of sunglasses. If your dad is in need of a great pair of polarized sunglasses, look no farther than Maui Jim. With an ultra-advanced technology in polarized lenses and hundreds of cool styles of sunglasses to choose from, you’ll easily find the perfect pair for your travel-loving dad. Every pair of their sunglasses is polarized with a unique technology that shows the wearer the full color spectrum, while also protecting their eyes from 100% of UVA and UVB rays. If your dad is sightseeing while wearing Maui Jims, he’ll get to see all 16,777,216 hues of the color spectrum in vivid color, clarity and detail. Since Maui Jim sunglasses enhance the wearer’s vision, when he takes in the scenery on his next vacation, he’ll have you to thank for enhancing the experience.

The Dad Who Loves The Great Outdoors

If your dad loves the outdoors and loves going hiking, double-check his shoe size and grab him a pair of Timberland hiking boots. Timberland’s durable men’s hiking boots are perfect for any adventure, and they have stylish leather hiking boots, waterproof hiking boots, and more versatile hiking shoes. For trail-ready performance and fashion-forward style, your dad definitely needs a pair of Timberlands. Not only do these comfortable boots work with outdoorsy performance gear, but they’re stylish enough to also look great with jeans and a t-shirt for roaming the city streets, too. If your dad is into the outdoor lifestyle, this is the perfect Father’s Day gift.

The Dad Who Loves Fashion

When it comes to men’s style, a watch is a must-have staple for a man’s wardrobe. A stylish watch is essential for a stylish man, and your dad might be due for an upgrade in the watch department, making a Hamilton watch the perfect Father’s Day gift. Hamilton is a leading Swiss brand for automatic watches. Hamilton Watches are affordable and they’re known for their high performance standards, their fashion-forward styles, and their use of the latest Swiss technology. Hamilton Watches design stylish automatic, mechanical, quartz and skeleton watches with Swiss precision. They have a strong reputation for luxury craftsmanship, and whether your dad likes a classic watch, a sports watch or a dress watch – you’ll find a watch he’ll love.

The Dad Who Loves Working Out

If your dad loves exercising or being athletic, he might be due for some new athletic clothing. Perhaps your dad is keen on tennis, yoga, squash or just loves going to the gym. No matter what, great quality activewear is essential for an active dad. Lululemon is one of the world’s top brands of athletic gear and athleisure clothing because of the high-quality fabrics, the soft blends, breathable technology, and the stylish designs. They have several options to choose from in their men’s collection for Father’s Day.

The Dad Who Loves Golf

Eternity Rose

Many of you have a dad who absolutely loves golf. To honor your father’s love for golf this Father’s Day, consider getting him a unique 24 karat gold-dipped golf ball. A company called The Eternity Rose not only sells gold-dipped roses, they also sell gold-dipped golf balls – and yes, they are playable. Their stunning gold-dipped golf balls can rival regular golf balls, as they are able to fly across the golf course just as long and straight as a regular golf ball. In addition to their playable gold-dipped golf balls, this company also sells display gold-dipped golf balls. This decorative item is a genuine golf ball and tee which are both dipped in pure 24 karat gold for display purposes. The gold-dipped set is a perfect complement to any golfer’s display cabinet, trophy shelf, or mantel piece. If your dad loves golf and has trophies, this gift would be a fantastic addition to his shelf, and one of the most unique Father’s Day gifts you could give.

Now that you’ve got some inspiration, we hope that you’ll get more creative this year with your Father’s Day gift. Any caring, supportive, loving dad certainly deserves it.
