Father’s Day Gift Ideas Dad Will Actually Love

Father’s Day provides a chance to pay tribute to that special father figure in your life – whether he’s your biological father or just someone who’s taken up the same role. To make the day really special, it’s worth marking it with a suitable gift. But exactly which gifts make the best fit for the occasion? Let’s take a look at a few of the standouts.

Something personalised

Thanks to the modern internet, it’s never been easier to get a personalised message engraved on a luxury product. It’s often a good idea to personalise an item that’s going to be used regularly, like a pen knife, a handsaw, or a set of golf clubs. Then, of course, there’s the personalised number plate (though that might involve a little bit of back-and-forth with the DVLA). Tailor made golf wedges are often a good idea.

Something to enjoy together

Puzzles are an excellent gift to give your father as a way to enjoy together and foster an even stronger connection. You and your dad can laugh, learn, and challenge each other while completing 500-piece or 1000-piece Buffalo puzzles that will offer days or weeks of enjoyment! Once the puzzle is complete, satisfaction is abundant and a true sense of achievement is felt by everyone involved. In addition to providing cherished bonding moments, this activity will improve cognitive health and concentration skills – which can only be beneficial in our daily lives!

A useful and practical gift

You’ve probably heard this a million times, but it is worth repeating: A truly useful gift is one that is both practical and used. There is nothing worse than spending money on a gift that ends up in the back of a closet for years. So a folding key organizer is a great gift idea for your father that you can feel good about. This key organizer is very practical and it can be put in the car or in the office. It is very easy to use and it is available in different colors so that you can find one that suits him best.


If you want to provide a few treats that only tend to be enjoyed on a special occasion, then you might look into assembling a hamper. That way, you’ll be able to cram a dozen or so luxury items into a single gift. This has the advantage of safety: even if one of the items you buy doesn’t quite hit the mark, you’ll have other ones to fall back on. So, it’s hard to go wrong with a hamper.

You can also make a cigar and a beverage lavish hamper. This won’t leave any man indifferent, especially a cigar lover. When making such a hamper, pay attention to your loved one’s drinking and smoking tastes. If he prefers bourbon or whiskey, you can take Canadian or Irish whisky with H Upmann cigars known for their balanced medium-bodied flavors worldwide. For Father’s day, why not give him a gift that he will actually love? Instead of the traditional flowers or jewelry, why not give him a pack of Australian craft beers? Not only will he be able to enjoy his favorite beverage, but he will also have something to show for his hard work. Plus, this will be a great way to show him how much you appreciate him. For beer lovers, take Montecristo No. 4 or Cohiba Maduro 5 with dark beers. Cigar goes well with almost any type of drink, even with coffee. So, it’s not difficult to find a pairing.

Luxury items like caviar, posh chocolate and truffle-oil tend to go down well when they’re included in sets like this – but you should let your budget determine your shopping list.

A make-your-own kit

When you buy something that your dad has to put some effort into, you’re not only buying them a finished product: you’re also buying an experience that they’ll go through in order to make it. Herb gardens, brewing kits, and ships in bottles: they all provide something to do, as well as something to own. The best make-your-own kits end up becoming fully fledged hobbies, rather than just one-off treats.

A subscription

If your dad already has a passion, then signing him up for a gift that keeps on giving might be worthwhile. Pick a publication that matches his interests – or look for something that he’s already displayed an interest in. Subscriptions don’t just have to be to magazines and newspapers: they can also be to streaming services, online classes, and other personal-development products.

Of course, you won’t want to commit to paying for the subscription indefinitely: instead, pay for just a few months, and see if your dad wants to continue subscribing. 


If your dad has a cause near and dear to his heart, then you might elect to make a charitable donation in his name. Often, a charity auction is a great place to pick up rare items.
