I pride myself in finding unique gifts for my husband. But with everything going on right now, it’s easy for things to slip your mind. Let us save you time and help you out: below are some unique Father’s Day gifts he’ll love. How do I know? Because all of these gifts already have permanent places in our home, with two thumbs up from my husband!
Father’s Day Gift Ideas
For the Sports Fanatic
Something old, something new…surprise your sports fan with a vintage style, throwback sports hat from New Era. These fitted hats boast a variety of retro logos of his favorite team throughout the years. My husband loves his Detroit Lions hat with the 1961 logo (don’t let the M*ch*gan part fool you–we still bleed scarlet and gray at this house). Speaking of Ohio State…
For the Diehard Buckeye
Try a retro t-shirt from Homage. In addition to their buttery-soft shirts and excellent customer service, they are Columbus local and have an extensive Ohio State collection. If he is a tried and true Buckeye, he will love this t-shirt with a quote by the great Woody Hayes.
For the Drink Lover
If a bottle of scotch is getting routine, change it up by purchasing a cool accessory to enhance the experience. I purchased a set of these Bormioli Rocco decanters back in 2012, and they still look beautiful today. Is craft beer more his style? Consider the Draft Pour by Fizzics, which will instantly turn an ordinary beer into a creamy, nitro-style draught.
For the Budding Bartender
Summer is mixed drink season, so why not encourage his inner Tom Cruise in Cocktail? Try a fancy bitters set, like this one from Strongwater. The set includes unique flavors and is perfect for experimenting.
For the Tool Aficionado
Buying a tool for someone who has everything is tough. He most likely has specific tools for specific jobs, and trying to find something that is both unique and practical is challenging. The solution? A subscription to Family Handyman (yes, magazine subscriptions still exist). Each issue is full of tips, tricks, and projects that will keep him busy in the workshop for hours.
For the Board Game Player
We love playing strategy board games, but board games taste is unique to each player. If you’re not sure what he will like, consider a minimalist-style board game poster, like these from Meeple Design. With a variety of games to choose from, the father in your life will be impressed with your thoughtfulness and attention to detail.
For the Man Who’s Always on the Go
Bombas socks are well, the bomb. Comfortable. Soft. Supportive. With a unique patented design, Bombas socks will keep your feet going all day long. In addition, Bombas donates a pair of socks for each pair purchased. Even better? Their website shows at least 12 Giving Partners in Central Ohio, so you know that our local communities are getting the help they need.
