It’s that time of year again: time to make dad feel like a hero by showering him with attention and gifts. But uh…what gifts, exactly? Love him as we may, Dad can be particularly tricky to shop for. But never fear. We’ve put together a full list of suggestions to ensure dad feels properly celebrated this Father’s Day. Dig in and add your own suggestions in the comments!
1. Trunk Club
Today’s hip dads know they have to look nice in a wide variety of situations. This is all well and good if the dad you’re shopping for has the fashion bug, but it can be the root of a lot of anxiety for those who don’t. That’s where Trunk Club comes in. With this service, dad will be matched with his own personal stylist who will listen carefully to dad’s style preferences while also keeping the latest fashion trends in mind. Dad will then be shipped a personalized box of outfits, which he can keep and wear for 10 days. Whatever he returns, he doesn’t pay for. This is a great gift even for dads who do love fashion, as it gives them an opportunity to try on a wide variety of styles.
2. Fantasy Sports Site Membership
Got a sports fanatic on your hands? A membership to a fantasy sports site might be just what the ref ordered. Dad will have fun picking his team, making trades, following stats like never before, and maybe even making a little money on the side. Just don’t be surprised if he disappears for the full extent of the season.
3. Loot Crate
If dad is big into the geek and gamer communities, then there’s only one perfect gift for him: a subscription to Loot Crate. With loot crate, dad will receive a box each month stashed full with games, gamer gear, and geek paraphernalia like Marvel t-shirts. It’s the perfect gift for the dad who’s obsessed and just can’t get enough.
3. An Ergonomic Keyboard
While it may not be the sexiest gift on the list, an ergonomic split keyboard is gear dad is bound to be thankful for this Father’s Day. With a pull apart design, Goldtouch ergonomic split keyboards can also be tented, meaning that dad can find the perfect fit for him on both the horizontal and vertical planes. This way, he won’t have to force his hands into awkward positions as he types. With an ergonomic keyboard, his wrists won’t be strained as they’ll be situated into a neutral position, therefore preventing long term pain in the form of Repetitive Strain Injuries like Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. In this way, giving dad the gift of an ergonomic keyboard is really giving him the gift of productivity and a pain-free workday. He’ll easily sail through the day — and even come home to play a game or two from his loot crate.
4. Dollar Shave Club
Unless he’s a bearded wonder, dad has got to shave right? Why not add a little fun — and savings — to the process by getting him a subscription to Dollar Shave Club this Father’s Day? Dad will receive high quality razors, but you’ll only have to pay a few dollars each month. Three great blades leave plenty of variety for every type of shaver. This is a gift that’s both practical and fun. Check out the different blade options here.
If dad is big into barbecuing, than the iGrill2 is exactly what he needs. The iGrill2 is a Bluetooth-enabled meat thermometer. Not only will dad be able to cook his meat just to the perfect temperature, but he’ll also be able to monitor it from inside so he won’t have to stand constantly over the hot grill. In this way, the iGrill2 allows for meaty perfection, with less of the labor.
These are just a few of our favorite Father’s Day gifts. What are you go-tos? We’d love to hear all about them in the blog comments. Happy almost-Father’s Day!
