With Father’s Day around the corner, Gifts for Pop, Parenting Humor & Silly Tweets may come in handy. I came up with a mixed collection of practical, whimsical, and unexpected ideas to please. The trick I think is not overly focus on practical because those gifts can actually be disguised as chore requests! (A new drill to finish that home improvement project involves more work for Daddy-O.) Also, since life lately is colored with burdens and cares, find silly quotes to soften the ground of our hearts (who knows what goodness may take root?).
I independently selected products in this post—if you buy from one of my links, I may earn a commission.
11 Gifts He’s Sure to Love & Parenting Humor!
Customized Cards With Heart
For my own father, I chose a personalized card from Minted this year, and there are so many thoughtful options to choose from. You can totally customize the card inside with words directly from your heart, and I encourage you to go for it…Minted does such an incredible job.
If you haven’t tried to create a custom card before, it’s easy and the quality is top notch.
1. Trivia Game of Things We Oughta Know
It’s time to gather, unplug, and step away from Google to find out how much they REALLY know.
2. Practical & Potentially Lifesaving
Bright, durable, and compact, this set has five modes for emergency and outdoor use. And it’s not just for camping types! I have found everyone appreciates having a set of these in the car for a little extra reassurance.
3. Smart & Smokeless Mini Fire Pit
We have one of these smart tabletop, odorless, alcohol fueled concrete Colsen firepits, and the beauty of it lies in its simplicity. Whether it is used for: ambience inside, a cozy dining moment outside, or s’more making all year round, it’s one of those thoughtful gifts they never knew they wanted!
See it in action (albeit in dramatic fashion!) here:
4. Cologne from Paris
There’s good reason I am biased and completely sold on this fragrance pick from Paris. On a trip there, we stayed in an apartment not far from Diptyque’s flagship store.
We got to know the parfumeur who helped us select personal scents and taught us the art of mixing Diptyque fragrances. Volutes was my husband’s favorite, and it soon became our sons’ favorite too! It smells amazingly complex and gorgeous!
5. Personalized Photo Puzzle
If you have yet to have a puzzle made from a personal photo, you are in for a treat! Who doesn’t appreciate the surprise of a custom puzzle with a favorite image of them, a pet, or family? The ones I have ordered have been more beautiful than I imagined, and they are packaged impeccably from Minted.
6. Inkless Art/Painting Board
Until you try it, it may seem slightly mysterious since there is no ink, paint, or any mess at all involved with this painting board. But is it just for artist types? Not at all. It’s a clever, unplugged, relaxing tool to get out of your head. Since the art fades away, it’s all about the process and not any finished masterpiece. Deliciously Zen-lovely!
7. Fitness & Health Tracker
Ready for exercise or ready for recovery? This tracker will optimize workouts and help manage well being.
8. Engraved Hammer
Everybody loves a personalized, customized, one of a kind gift, and here’s one that is sure to hammer home the blessing you seek to give.
9. Say it With SNACKS
Oh, good gracious, it’s 40 snacks in a care package that will surely not be re-gifted! Think beyond Father’s Day to thank you gifts, staff rooms, college, and military gifts!
10. Mitt & Potholder Set
I need this in my life and can imagine the number of guys who would be happy to upgrade their current (and likely subpar!) pair of mitts!
11. Stylish Timekeeper
With multiple dimmer and alarm settings, this modern minimal alarm clock makes a smart nightlight as well and will look good on any number of bedside tables.

Buddha board sounds like something I’d love! May have to ask for that for M-day!! Haha!
It is very meditative, and makes a great gift even if it’s for you! 🙂 Happy Mother’s Day!
