Inspiration to Help You Find the Perfect Gift for Dad
Well, Mother’s Day was able to sneak up on me this year, but I am letting it serve as a warning for me to prepare for Father’s Day now, which really isn’t all that far away. I suggest you also start planning your Father’s Day gifts now so that you have time to get something personalized and allow time for delivery.
It seems like we always need extra time when looking for gifts to buy for men. Why are men so difficult to buy for? Anytime you ask them what they want for their Birthday/Christmas/Father’s Day, you always get the same answer, “I don’t need anything.”
Well, the best gifts to give are usually ones that the recipient doesn’t necessarily need, but instead something that he wants. The best gifts are ones that they wouldn’t buy for themselves and should be fun, personalized, or sentimental.
It can be hard to find unique gifts, especially for men, because we want to give gifts that they will actually enjoy. Luckily, it is easier than ever to find the best creative, unique, and personal gifts online.
I think that Father’s Day is a special day to remember all dads (those who are with us and those who have passed). Father’s Day is especially sweet for first-time dads and grandpas too!
In this Father’s Day Gift Guide, you will find some thoughtful, unique, and personalized gift ideas for Dad, Grandpa, StepDad, or any other father-figure in your life. These Father’s Day gift ideas from wife, kids, and grandkids will be sure to put a smile on any dad’s face! Be sure to remember them all this year!

Personalized ProV1 Titleist Golf Balls
These premium golf balls can be customized with your dad’s name. These are the perfect personalized gift for the dad who loves to golf!

This is a really fun gift because most men might not buy these premium golf balls for themselves, but they will absolutely love to show these off on the course!
Dad Est. 2020 – 16 Oz Drinking Glasses
This would be a great gift for a new dad or for a pregnancy announcement! The design on the glass is hand engraved so that it never wears off. This means it can go in the dishwasher! (Mandatory requirement in my house!)
According to the product detail page on Amazon, the glasses are individually boxed and protected for safe delivery. The glasses are engraved by hand in Northern Colorado.
Here is another great personalized beer mug. This one is so perfect for the golfer dad and would go great with the personalized golf balls!
“Dad, a son’s first hero.” Cue the waterworks. What an emotional sentiment! This is the first time I have seen this particular quote, and I was so moved by it. I think that all personalized gifts are really the best and most meaningful gifts, but when you find such a heartfelt message it can make for a truly cherished and memorable gift. These types of gifts are the ones that “keep on giving” because they bring joy and memories to the recipients every time they look at it and think of you!
Here are some more personalized and engraved gifts.

I really cannot help myself when it comes to family matching or coordinating outfits. I think that they are so adorable and so much fun. This is the perfect gift for the dad who is a Star Wars fan!
First Time Dad
This is a precious gift for a first-time dad’s first Father’s Day. Being a new parent is so exciting. This Happy First Father’s Day onesie would make such a special gift for that new dad!
The Man the Myth the Legend T-shirt
What I love about this one is that you can personalize it for Dad or Grandpa. You can change the nickname to whatever you call Grandpa like “Pap” or “Pappy.” I always had a hard time finding a gift for my father-in-law, but after he became a grandpa, it was a lot easier to find Father’s Day gifts for him because he loves being “Pappy.”
Here are a few more gift ideas to give you some inspiration to choose the perfect gift for your dad based on his personal interests and hobbies.
GPS Golf Watch
Okay, so I definitely didn’t come up with this idea on my own. This was a gift that my husband requested. I have included a few golf gifts, but my husband loves golf, so he was my inspiration there. If the dad in your life enjoys golf, he will love this watch (according to my husband)!
For the dad who is a music lover. You can find his favorite artist on vinyl, Audio CD, or MP3 album on Amazon.

Now, if you none of these gifts work for your dad because he is just too practical for any of this stuff and he insists that he doesn’t need or want anything, I have one last suggestion for you.
Gold Toe Socks
If your dad insists on something practical, then you gotta go for the gold! Gold Toe socks are comfortable and durable and will make an excellent gift for that man who is impossible to buy gifts for! My husband works on his feet all day and he insists that Gold Toe socks are the best. He claims it makes a huge difference if he is wearing comfortable socks or not.
