There's no right time to start brainstorming gifts for dads because, no matter how long you spend searching, it doesn't get easier. When it comes down to the wire, a humorous or personal gift can do the trick. Take Ree Drummond, who gave her husband, Ladd, 200 individual tins of Carmex one year! "He uses Carmex daily," Ree says. "And had remarked months earlier that his biggest fear was that Carmex would be discontinued." Talk about funny Father's Day gifts! 😂 While this type of present has pizazz coming from a wife (who's already given innumerable nice Father's Day gifts), it might not land the same coming from a son. You can still be punny, but you'll also want something that shows you appreciate him and captures the father-son bond! To make things easier, we've rounded up the best gifts for dads from sons so that you can maintain your rightful title of "favorite child."
Here's the thing, though: It doesn't actually need to be so stressful. With this list at the ready, you'll be able to tackle even the trickiest Father's Day gifting scenarios with ease, style, and humor. Each of these gifts will celebrate his interests and hobbies, from cooking, music, and movies, to fishing, sports, and more. We've even included handy gifts he can use daily and thoughtful gifts he'll treasure forever. Whether you need a present for your dad or are looking for a sentimental gift for your stepdad, there's something here that just about any guy would feel comfortable getting (and giving). Many of these double as great gifts for Dad from daughters in case your sister needs an idea, too!
