Since I’m a first-time Dad this year, I decided to give you all a list of things that I personally think other Dads would find useful and awesome.
Two facts about me when it comes to gift-giving:
- I always buy at the last minute.
- I don’t like to spend a ton of money.
Now let’s be clear on something: If you’re looking for one of those super cool blog posts that shows you how to make all the crafty, amazing stuff with $7 worth of supplies this is probably not what you’re looking for.
I’m not a crafty type of guy myself. I’m a “hit Amazon just in time for a Prime delivery” kind of guy so guess what this list is full of….awesome gifts you can find on Amazon (or other online marketplaces) that won’t leave you broke and frustrated.
Basically it’s the list I wish I could have had while buying for my own father all these years.
Fire Stick With Alexa Voice Remote
Oh man! It’s now possible to tell your remote to order your favorite meal or even play your favorite movie with this awesome Father’s Day gift idea.
You can access all of the streaming services like Netflix and Hulu plus certain social apps like Facebook and YouTube as well.
Plus if you have a cable provider like DirecTv, you can watch live TV as well.
Custom Guitar Pick
Have a guitar playing Dad in your life? Let him know that his kid couldn’t “pick” a better Dad with this awesome Father’s Day gift.
I’m not a guitar player myself, but for a split second I definitely wish I was! It comes in multiple colors and really can’t be beat for less than $10.
This briefcase makes a great gift idea for the professional dads out there.
With enough compartments to hold everything he needs plus the nice leather design on the exterior, he will surely love this gift.
Amazon Echo Dot
These things are so freaking cool! If he doesn’t have one, definitely look into getting any Dad that has a basic understanding of technology an Amazon Echo.
We had ours before Alison arrived, but it’s so convenient being able to hold her in my arms and say a few words to get her soothing music playlist going.
“Dude, You’re Gonna Be A Dad” Book
Everything is about to change in the life of this Dad-To-Be. I definitely recommend grabbing a copy of one of my favorite books that I read during our pregnancy.
Not only will it help dad with learning everything that’s currently happening and about to happen, but it will help mom by keeping her from having to explain literally everything to him.
Wireless + Waterproof Earbuds
These earbuds also have a noise-cancelling feature as well allowing Dad to tune out everything that isn’t keeping him entertained at the moment.
Nite Ize Dash Mount Kit
OK so here’s the deal: I actually have one of these and it’s AMAZING! It holds my phone while I drive (which keeps it out of my hands), AND it does not move.
Like at all. I’ve had several gadgets that promised the same, but this one actually worked the best so far for me. Keep Dad safe on the road with this Father’s Day gift!
6-Pack Golf Bag Cooler
This golf bag cooler fits inside Dad’s golf bag allowing him to save money by bringing his own drinks from home. It’s also insulated and comes with an ice pack which keeps his beers cold for an entire round.
Dad To Be Shirt
The cool thing about these gifts so far is that you can pair them with one another and create an awesome gift package.
Be sure to throw this cool shirt in for Father’s Day that allows him to show off his excitement wherever he goes too!
RTIC 30 oz Tumbler
These are pretty sweet and come in at a way lower cost than the Yeti cups. Taylor and I both have a couple and highly recommend them to everyone!
First Father’s Day Bodysuit
This little bodysuit is too cute! I’ll admit that I actually already have one of these for Alison, but that was because Toys R Us was going out of business and we just had to snag that one.
I can’t wait to take some photos with my little girl in hers, and I can all but guarantee every first time dad would feel the same way.
Power Bank For Cell Phone
If the new dad in your life is anything like me, he’s taking a ton of photos and videos.
Make sure he doesn’t miss any of the moments by grabbing this super slim power bank for his phone.
It’s super portable and has the cables built in already for extra convenience.
Your Baby’s First Word Will Be Dada
Grab this book for any soon-to-be Dad’s and help create awesome memories he’ll never forget with his little one.
Father’s Day Poem in Double Frame
“52 Things To Do While You Poo” Book
Let’s face it: sometimes it can get a little boring in there. Keep Dad entertained while he takes care of business with this hilarious gift idea.
It will also be a good laugh for any company that happens to stumble across it.
Being a new dad, running this blog, and working full-time means there is no time for meaningless tasks like hanging your keys up right as you walk in the door.
Or putting your wallet in the same place every day.
It just doesn’t happen. Help dad at least be able to find his keys/wallet/etc that he left in the fridge after grabbing himself a cold one with the Tile Slim.
“World’s Best Farter” T-Shirt
There’s nothing like a Dad with a great sense of humor. For under $15, this is a Father’s Day gift that will never be forgotten and will be appreciated until it starts get those random holes in weird places that only Dad’s have.
Cell Phone Finger Holder
I’ve always found these to be pretty cool. I can only imagine how useful it would be while trying to hold a baby as well.
“What I Love About Dad” Book
Okay this is for sure one of the coolest gifts on the list. Each page has a general statement and a fill-in-the-blank line for you to tell your Dad why he’s the best.
When I saw this, all I could think about was how awesome it would be to have something like this from Alison once she was old enough and I knew I had to recommend it. Be sure to check it out!
Oster Electric Wine Bottle Opener
This wine bottle opener is cordless, fits pretty much every bottle, and requires little to no effort. Do I need to say anything else?
Oversized Genuine Leather Travel Bag
I’m always on the go. Sometimes it’s just for a night and I really don’t want to be carrying around a huge suitcase for that trip.
This bag is perfect for dads that are always on the move for shorter periods of time.
The Official Beard Bib
Chances are you’ve heard a man getting yelled at for leaving hair everywhere after a quick shave.
I’ll admit that I’ve done it (with every intention to clean it up) when I was in a major rush to get somewhere and needed a quick trim.
Not only is this the Beard Bib a great gift for any man, but it could help save a marriage too. 🙂 🙂
Alright. I know some of you will see all these awesome gift ideas and go “Eh. I think what Dad really needs is a nice pair of socks.” If you don’t want to get that awkward smile people do when they hate your gift, but think socks is a good idea, go with something cool like these.
Gift Card + Father’s Day Card
Scared you’re gonna blow it by picking something he absolutely hates this year? There’s nothing wrong with playing it safe and snagging a gift card and a funny Father’s Day card.
