If it’s a challenge every year to get that perfect gift for the dad who already has everything, here are a few ideas that may help you find this year’s winner:
Recurring theme in a box: Subscription boxes are all the rage, and there’s a box available for almost every taste, interest, style or budget. Whether related to grooming and skin care, fashion, pop culture or fitness, there’s a subscription service available. birchbox.com, stitchfix.com, lootcrate.com, trunkclub.com, cratejoy.com
First-time Father: Boost that sleep-deprived dad with a gift to help him enjoy and make the most of this special time: a stroller mount for his cellphone, books to read at bedtime, coffee to keep him awake, and a pillow to snuggle that’s printed with images of the new addition to the family. uncommongoods.com
Retro Dad: Everything old is new again, and if Dad has saved his vinyl collection, he might enjoy taking his music for a spin with an updated turntable. Current models allow for connections via Bluetooth audio streaming to speakers and headphones to enjoy that warm vinyl sound. bestbuy.com
Showcase memories: Get his favorite photos out of the phone and printed onto an interesting substrate. A photo printed on glass, on metal or directly on wood makes a gift he’ll be proud to display. fractureme.com, costcophotocenter.com, photobarn.com
Card Shark Dad: If Dad’s poker set is looking a bit worn and missing a few chips, it’s a sure bet he’d love to up his game. Combine a new set of chips with an automatic playing-card deck shuffler and a poker tabletop. Set up a date for him and his poker cohorts to settle in for hours of fun. amazon.com
Gifts as unique as he is: For the dad who has everything, only one-of-a-kind, handcrafted gifts will do. There are several sites that host craftspeople who can make custom decorations, greeting cards, personalized items such as cufflinks, art, tool belts and tools. etsy.com, bigcartel.com, taigan.com
Most importantly, don’t forget to let him know how much he means to you.
Happy Father’s Day!
