Father’s Day Gift Ideas That Every Kind Of Dad Will Love

Because dads deserve it too.

Our Father’s Day gift ideas for 2022 range from Father’s Day gifts for new dads and gift ideas for any manly figure in your life you want to thank for being an amazing dad. Here is our list of the best gifts for Father’s Day:

  • A mug with a pun. While not everyone’s dad is the biggest on puns, the funny dad is likely making them constantly. So we love this Father’s Day gift that reads ‘Best Farter Ever.’
  • Get your dad a custom bobblehead with his face on it!
  • Print one of his favorite ‘Dad Jokes‘ onto a shirt.
  • Take your dad to a comedy club.
  • Spend the day watching funny movies at home.

Father’s Day is a great day to keep your dad laughing, especially if you know he loves a good joke. Take this opportunity to recruit your father on a minor scale prank mission. (And don’t be afraid to victimize a family member! Haha)

  • If he’s a fan of spicy cuisine, look for DIY Make Your Own Hot Sauce Kits that let him make his ideal hot sauce blend. Then, finally, he can enjoy as spicy food (or mild) as he wants.
  • If he’s big on grilling, this would be a great time to get him a funny apron, BBQ grill accessories, or special ingredients that heighten his marinating experience.
  • If your dad isn’t too big on the cooking, take your dad out to dinner or lunch! So, dad loves a particular food joint; pick the restaurant that lets your dad eat as comfortably as possible. Look for his favorite meals and cuisine. Don’t forget to ask him about the shenanigans he got up to when he was younger while you let him load up on a bit of alcohol and lotta tasty food!
  • If he’s not too big on stepping out for a meal, bring the experience to him. This would be a great time to order from his favorite takeout spots or splurge on a private chef to cook him a special meal at home.
  • Your dad may have a strong penchant for craft beer or high-end whiskey if he is more of a connoisseur of the finer things. Supposedly, buying him liquor may not feel like the best present, pick up some cool drinking accessories, including decanters, personalized ice cube molds, or beer sleeves.  
  • If your dad is not the biggest on alcohol consumption, this would be a great time to look out for monthly food subscription services. We love a good cheese of the month or sausage of the month club; your dad will too!

Cute Father’s Day Gift Ideas For A New Dad 

If this is someone’s first Father’s Day gift, here’s a round-up of what we think would be the best gift for Father’s Day: 

The Dad Hoodie, one of the best Father's Day Gift Ideas

  • Buy him a dad hoodie! Dad hoodies are created with multiple pockets and compartments that work as a diaper bag without carrying one. The mesh pockets are great for fitting feeding bottles, diapers, wipes, and other baby accessories, without it getting too bulky.
  • If he’s into coffee, this would be a great time to invest in a new coffee maker or anything that would perk him up around ‘dad time activities.’
  • For dads trying to juggle their past life with their ‘dad life,’ buying him accessories such as a tablet holder or a Nintendo switch for some gaming on the go could help him transition into dad mode without feeling less like himself.
  • Do you know a dad who would love something customized, personalized, something he uses every day? This could be a personalized journal, a pocket watch, a personalized wireless charger, or something more sentimental like a photo puzzle.

Father’s Day gifts for first-time dads should help make their journey into fatherhood a little less confusing. Keep them faithful to the father’s personality, and don’t be afraid to get a little playful with it. Fatherhood is supposed to be exciting, not scary!
