Father’s Day gift ideas for the pickiest of dads.


There are all kinds of dads; sports fans, car enthusiasts, movie buffs, book worms, wannabe chefs and nature lovers. And if your dad is one of those kinds of dads, I think it’s easy to find him something to show him how much you appreciate him this Father’s Day.
But what if your dad doesn’t have a hobby? Or follow a particular sports team? What do you get that hard to shop for dad?
I’ve put together a few ideas to help thank even the hardest to shop for dad. There is something for every dad and every budget.

Gas card

If your dad isn’t really into any hobbies, but drives a car; a gas card could be a great gift. It could help fill his tank, or allow him to get his car washed and gleaming in time for summer.


You’re probably thinking, what?! While a lot of men these days are paying attention to their skin, perhaps your dad could use a bit of help. A skincare set specifically for men could be just the thing to help him look and feel great. And it’s not something he would buy himself.


If your dad is like mine, he wears just a pair of cheap sunnies. Splurge on a new pair of sunglasses, like these Ray Bans to make him look as cool as he really is!

Dinner out

A gift card to a restaurant is a great way to get the special guy in your life out. Especially if it’s to a restaurant that he wouldn’t necessarily try on his own.


Is your dad the kind of guy who misplaces stuff? Tile is a good option to help him keep track of those items that are important to him, and something he probably won’t buy for himself!

Travel Mug

If your dad is like mine, he loves his morning cup of Joe. So why not splurge and buy him a new travel mug and maybe even a gift card to his favourite coffee place? He’ll think of you with every sip! Check out the selection of Contigo mugs on Amazon, there is a huge selection of styles to choose from.
Another option is to buy him a coffee maker. With so many options on the market, you are sure to find him one that will make him the perfect cup at the touch of a button!

Wearable tech

Is your dad into fitness? Does he want to start tracking his health and progress? The choices of wearable technology are endless and really easy to set up. Check out Apple Watch, FitBit or Garmin, just to name a few. There is a watch/wearable for every style, and you can even use it to show him how to track all those cat naps he takes in front of the tv every night!

Subscription Boxes

Subscription boxes aren’t just for the ladies. There are a variety of boxes available for the men in your life, including beer boxes, hot sauce of the month club boxes, shave clubs, men’s lifestyle boxes, sock subscriptions and more. Find a box that suits your dad’s personality and your budget and you can give the gift that keeps on giving all year long.

With Father’s Day a few days away, there’s still time to get him a gift to show him how much you love and appreciate him. I’m sure whatever you choose, he’ll be like my dad and tell you none of it was necessary anyway!
Happy Father’s Day!
