Uncommonly Good Father’s Day Gift Ideas for Dad

Personalized Hammer

You don’t have to personalize it with the generic ‘best Dad ever’ or even a name. Some folks choose ‘Thanks for helping me build my life’ which is such a powerful sentiment. Or how about an inside joke or simply ‘you’re loved so dearly’…just be sure to double check grammar and spelling and not choose a negative personalization since the recipient will have a hammer in his hand…ha!

Luxurious Sheets

I know this is maybe not what you were thinking, but this is based upon experience! These are sheets my husband selected and loves. I’m the frugalista in the family, but I guess cry once, buy once, applies here.

Yeti Rambler Mug

Another choice inspired by my husband. I gave him one of these, and he is nutty about it. It’s maybe the most over-engineered camp mug on the planet that is also dishwasher safe and an overachiever with its double-wall vacuum so drinks stay hot or cold til the last sip.

Google Home Mini

Game: I Should Have Known That

Ever had the experience of a word, a name, or fact on the tip of your tongue? Here’s a trivia set designed to transform that moment of awkwardness into hilarity. Instead of questions about ancient history you never heard of, the questions are about movies, pop culture, and recent events we should know all about. For example, does the Statue of Liberty hold her torch in the left or right hand?

Pink BBQ Plank

Familiar with Himalayan salt? Its stable crystal structure allows it to hold a temperature well. You can chill it to use as a serving platter for sushi, or heat it over a grill or stovetop to cook veggies. Cooking on salt imparts enhanced flavor, and the mineral content delivers more nuanced flavor than table salt. Himalayan salt is also long-lasting and naturally antibiotic, needing little more than wiping with a damp sponge after most uses.

Nothing Says I Love You Like..a Sharp Blade

Well, that may not hold true for everyone, but in my years living with three men, I have learned they become giddy about knife gifting.

The creator of these knives was hiking near the Santi Mountains in Switzerland when it dawned on him that an everyday tool could have the loveliness of a mountain range. From afar, these steel knives look rather ordinary. A closer look reveals a tiny replica of a real mountain range along the serrated edge. For cutting bread or slicing fruit, the design comes in three ridges: the Denver Front Range, Jackson Teton Range, or Salt Lake Wasatch Range. It makes a memorable gift for campers, skiers, and nature lovers alike. Made in Switzerland.

Luxurious & The Lingering Scent in My Own Home

Our anniversary trip to Paris in 2012 found us staying for a time in a Paris apartment just steps from Diptyque’s flagship boutique. This scent, Volutes, had just been created, and my husband and I both agreed it was perfect for him. Once home, we couldn’t keep our sons from wearing it, so when I need a luxurious gift idea, this is it. What does it smell like? Lovely. Paris. Very complex.

It’s a blend of iris, tobacco, honey, pink pepper, saffron, myrrh and more.

Dad Moments

I shared this hula-help moment on my FB page, and folks really responded…I think because we get to witness love in action.

And just wait until you’re tickled by this ‘conversation’ with a father and his infant!

Thanks for playing along, and I hope an idea or two here eases your gift shopping for birthdays and the occasions you celebrate. If you’re in the mood for decor inspiration, I shared a tour of my kitchen this week as well as a beautiful kitchen tour in Boston and porch decor ideas.

    Why is it that I’m always at a loss as to what to get the men in my life for Father’s Day. I think of things when it’s not that time of year then promptly forget my great ideas. So thank you for a bunch of great ideas.

      I’m the same way! I do enjoy buying things throughout the year and tucking them away. This is one of those areas where I can make the blog work for me – and can refer back! 🙂
