Wooden Stand for Glasses
Does your dad lose his glasses a lot? Help him out with this good-looking wooden stand, large mustache included. My husband owns a similar one and it is probably one of his favorite gifts (seriously, he sometimes brings it out of the bedroom to show guests).
Wood Picture Frame
Give your dad the gift of a cherished father-daughter memory that he can admire in a beautiful, engraved wood frame. Even though relationships with dads aren’t perfect, this frame focuses on love and happy moments. My dad sometimes sends me a picture of framed photos I’ve given him of us, so I know this makes a great gift for dad!
2-Pocket Dad’s Spot Pillow
Not only does this pillow mark dad’s favorite spot to sit and relax, but it has pockets to hold the two items that he most needs handy when resting. No losing the remote or phone in the void of the couch or bed anymore!
If your father spends any time working with his hands-on car and home repairs, or maybe hobbies, these gloves might be exactly what he needs. They keep the light directly on whatever he’s working on but leave his hands free because he doesn’t have to hold a flashlight.
Engraved Pocket Knife
Don’t let dad get caught without a pocket knife when he needs one! My husband uses his all the time when opening packages, doing DIY projects, and especially when we go camping. This one is not only great quality, but you can engrave it with your dad’s name, his initials, or a personalized message to make it more special than any other knife he may own.
Like Father Like Daughter Coffee Tumbler
Humor is often one of the best parts of a father-daughter relationship. This tumbler capitalizes on that humor, and your dad will love that you acknowledge how you’re like him, in a funny way.
This valet tray can serve as a useful catch-all for your dad to dump out his pockets after a long day without creating clutter around the house. The lovely leather design provides a manly touch of elegance, and the engraving ensures he never forgets he is loved. Plus, it is easily foldable so he can take it with him when traveling! This set also includes a bonus leather keychain.
Favorite Daughter T-Shirt
Whether you have sisters or not, naming yourself the favorite and having your dad proclaim it on his shirt is just funny. I have 3 daughters and we gave their dad a similar shirt. It’s still a source of humorous bickering about who the “favorite” actually is. If you give your dad this shirt, there can be no doubt.
Beard Grooming Kit
If your dad has a beard or is in the process of growing one, he can definitely use an all-inclusive gift kit like this one. This beard kit includes everything a bearded father might need: beard shampoo, conditioner, balm, oil, brush, comb, scissors, and an e-book on beard care.
This mug speaks the truth! You are a freaking awesome daughter and your dad should proudly show it! This is a funny and functional gift for dad from a self-proclaimed awesome daughter. Serve your dad a laugh along with his coffee!
The warm glow of this lamp is perfect for showcasing the sweet, sentimental message engraved on it. Give your dad some caring words that he can look at to feel reminded of how much you love him.
Personalized Birthstone Ring
Sometimes people don’t think about jewelry for dads, but my husband loves rings, especially if they hold a special meaning. This is your chance to give your dad a highly personalized ring. You can engrave it with your dad’s name, intial, or other dad-related messages. It can also be engraved on the inside band and you can select which birthstone(s) to be displayed on the ring.

Bass Pro Gift Card
Sometimes dads are just difficult to shop for. If yours enjoys doing ANYTHING in the outdoors, he is sure to find something he likes at Bass Pro Shops. They have sooo much variety for pretty much any outdoor activity (my husband can spend HOURS in this store). If you are very unsure about what to get him, give your dad a gift card so he can get something he will use and enjoy for sure!
Wood Phone Docking Station
Give your dad a stylish and elegant place for him to empty his pockets and charge his phone. He won’t ever have to search for his keys, glasses, or phone, because this has a designated spot for all of these items!
Corkcicle Star Wars Canteen
I saw this as an ad on an email and I could not help but click on it. This insulated canteen is in the style of Boba Fett. They also have C3PO, Darth Vader, and more. If your dad is a fan of Star Wars, this is a really cool gift for him.
This titanium bracelet makes an elegant, yet modern gift for your dad. It is engraved with a simple “dad” on the front, and the interior of the bracelet is engraved with “Love you dad.” If your dad enjoys wearing jewelry, he’ll love this handsome bracelet.
Scriveiner Luxury Fountain Pen
My husband has gotten super into calligraphy so he’s all about fountain pens. Whether your dad enjoys calligraphy or not, a classy, elegant fountain pen is a sure win. This pen boasts a luxurious writing experience your dad will love.

Stackable Storage Drawer Cabinet
Sometimes the best gifts fill a need that you have noticed. If your dad has a disorganized tools area or works with small objects on hobbies or projects, a storage drawer cabinet like this one can make all the difference for keeping things organized and easy to find.
Whiskey Decanter Set
I bought a similar set for my husband a few years ago and he adores it. This ship-in-a-bottle decanter provides an elegant display for your dad’s favorite amber liquid. Plus, this set includes glasses, stainless steel ice cubes, tongs, and more!
Cooler with Pop-Up Table
If you click on the image you’ll see how cool this looks with the lid popped up! My husband showed this to me on Amazon and it’s on my list of things to buy for him.
The handle makes it easy to carry this fashionable cooler to any picnic, beach, or backyard hangout. It not only keeps your drinks cold, but the lid pops up about ten inches to serve as a handy cocktail table.

Smart Meat Thermometer
Help your dad cook smarter with this high-tech meat thermometer. Your dad can leave the thermometer in the meat while it cooks, and get an alert on his phone when it is ready! The companion app gives your dad more control and freedom when cooking.
This projector is badass and I am so excited to get one in the future. For now, it sits in my wishlist. Some of the few things my dad and I can enjoy together are movies and BBQ. How cool would it be to bring those two loves together and watch a movie while enjoying some BBQ outside? This projector provides excellent display quality and includes a screen!
Home Theater Sound Bar
The suggestion to add a home theater sound bar to this list came from my husband. His sound system stopped working after 10 years and he’s been talking about sound bars ever since (it’s on my shopping list). If your dad enjoys watching movies or listening to music, this gift is for him. This sound bar is bluetooth enabled and includes a wireless subwoofer to create a stellar, dynamic sound.
