It may feel like it was just Mother’s Day, but we’re under a month away from honouring our dads! Yes, Father’s Day is Sunday, June 17th this year and it’s a great opportunity to show our fathers just how much they means to us. Since parents aren’t always easy to shop for, I’ve pulled together 15 ideas for what to get for Father’s Day. These gifts fall into a wide range of price points and categories, so there’s sure to be something for everyone!
#1. A Stunning Watch
Watches make a fantastic gift since they’re practical, worn often, and it’s nice to have a variety of watch styles and colours for different occasions. MVMT has some beautiful options for men, and the Rose Gold Natural Tan watch (pictured) is a great versatile option. Shop MVMT’s Men’s collection for more.
#2. A Portable Table Tennis Set
Cater to your dad’s fun or athletic side with this ping pong set! Its net is expandable and retractable, letting you set it up when you’re ready to play and store it out of the way when not in use. Find it here on Amazon.
#3. A Cool Set of Beer Glasses
Another great Amazon find! Not only do these beer glasses look cool, but they keep drinks cool for longer due to double wall insulation. The glass comes packaged in a luxury box perfect for gift giving. Find it here.
#4. A Priority Pass Membership
If your dad travels a lot for business or pleasure, gift him a better airport experience. A Priority Pass membership provides access to over 1,000 airport lounges around the world. Annual membership fees start at $99, but click here to save up to 20%.
#5. A Spice Rub Gift Set
If your dad’s second name is “King of the Grill”, consider gifting him this fabulous trio set of meat rubs. Chicago Steak & Chop, Argentina Steak Rub, and Kansas City Classic Rub will help him take grilling to the next level. Learn more about them here.
#6. A Book of Dad Jokes
Is your dad a joker? This book of dad jokes is sure to give him a chuckle or two!
#7. A Set of Men’s Skincare Products
If your dad could use some pampering, consider this limited edition gift set from Jack Black. It includes large sizes of their face scrub, pre-shave conditioner, and moisturizer, all in a functional carrying case. Jack Black products get fantastic reviews, so it’s hard to go wrong with one of their gift sets.
#8. A Sleek Leather Belt
Gift your dad a versatile accessory like a beautiful leather belt. This one from Allen Edmonds (pictured) is made in the U.S.A. and features a sleek look. The rich walnut shade makes it work with most dress pants and chinos alike.
#9. A Great Pair of Sunglasses
If your dad spends any amount of time outside, sunglasses make a great gift. They’re the type of thing he may not treat himself to, especially not a high quality pair. The Oakley Holbrook Mix shades (pictured) are a versatile choice, but if your dad plays golf or any other outdoor sport, consider getting him something more specialized.
#10. A Pair of Cute or Funny Socks
It’s hard to go wrong with funny socks! They’re an affordable gift that come in a TON of patterns, designs, and functions. I love these cute Men’s Pick Up Truck Socks (pictured), but HotSox has a huge selection to choose from. Their socks are high quality and they offer free shipping on orders $45 and above. They also sell women’s socks which can help you reach the shipping minimum!
#11. A Meal Kit Subscription
Here are some companies to check out:
Blue Apron (U.S. Only)
Blue Apron is the grandfather of ingredient-and-recipe subscriptions and services almost the entire United States!
HelloFresh (U.S., UK, Canada)
If you’re looking for delicious cooking made easy, look no further than HelloFresh. They offer 3 different plans and loads of recipe options that take 30 minutes to make. Here are some links to save on HelloFresh.
Chef’s Plate (Canada Only)
After trying out Chef’s Plate a few years ago, I’ve been hooked on their meal delivery service! In fact, over the past year, we’ve ordered it almost every week. My updated review goes into a lot of detail about the service and how it works, but suffice it to say it’s a great way to make healthy, sustainable, homemade meals part of your weekly routine.

#13. A Subscription to Audible
If your dad loves books but doesn’t always have the time to read, consider giving him a subscription to Audible. He can listen anytime and anywhere to a wide range professionally-narrated audiobooks in many genres. Perfect if you dad is looking for entertainment while at the gym, cooking, gardening, or commuting.
#14. A Donation to His Favourite Charity
If your dad is particularly passionate about a cause or non-profit, consider making in a donation in his name. This is a gift you can feel good about, and can make a big impact on those in need.
Many charities will send a card to the honouree, making your gift a bit more polished than a print out of your contribution.
