That is why I’ve pulled together this list of the best Father’s Day gift ideas (with the help of some of the favorite men in my life) to help all of you out with finding the perfect gift for dad!

Father’s Day Gifts I Have My Eye On!
Classic Father’s Day Gift Ideas
1. Ugg Scuff Slippers
For dads that put in long days of hard work, there is no better Father’s Day gift than a comfy pair of slippers. Ugg makes the absolute best slippers out there, and I can’t deny that I wear my own pair around the house more often than I would like to admit. The Ugg Scuff Slippers have real wool lining making them super cozy and great for every cold day.
2. Carhartt WIP Pocket T-Shirt
Every guy needs a comfy shirt that is versatile enough for everything from backyard BBQs to casual office days. Carhartt is the it brand right now, making this a great option for a Father’s Day gift.
3. Indoor/Outdoor Basketball
If your dad is always up for a little game of hoops in your backyard or at the neighborhood park, he will appreciate a nice new basketball. We selected this one since it is great for both indoors and outdoors.
It is a replica of the NCAA game ball and will roll right off your fingertips with every shot. Gift him some of your time along with the basketball and hit the court together!
4. Apple AirTag
Maybe it is just a bad stereotype, but every dad I know loses things on a daily basis. More frequently than not, it’s keys and wallets.
An AppleTag will help the dad in your life keep track of all the important things. They can be placed in or on just about anything and allow you to use the Find My app to locate wallets, keys, remotes, and more.
5. Nespresso VertuoPlus Titan Deluxe
Some coffee makers really do change your life, this is one of them. Even if your dad is a regular customer at Starbucks, he will appreciate this coffee maker and maybe even change his ways. It can make 4 different cup sizes and begins preparing your coffee with just the touch of a button.
The end result will be full-bodied coffee with a naturally formed crema… making you sound like the resident coffee expert when you gift this!
6. TheraGun Elite
Help a hardworking soothe any aches and pains with the TheraGun Elite. It provides deep muscle relaxation and helps athletes (or just active dads!) with recovery, performance, sleep, mobility, and stress.
