3 Unique Father’s Day Gift Ideas With Endless Possibilities Dad Is Sure to Love


It’s that time of year again and the anxiety of trying to figure out what to get dad for Father’s Day is back!

I don’t know about you, but I often struggle the most with buying for the men in my life. It’s not always very obvious what they may like or need and don’t already have, but is within a decent price range of course.

Let’s face it, the ties and tools go-to gifts get old pretty quick! I’m sure dad has plenty of golf balls in his collection by now also, right? So what can you do? If you ask him, he will likely just say he doesn’t need anything. FYI, not helpful guys!

Fortunately, I’ve spent the last few years pondering this and testing some ideas that turned out to be great hits! Now, I’m sharing them with you! 

The Gift of Adventure

The best gift by far is that of an adventure. Does the dad in your life like Nascar? Send him to the Richard Petty Racing Experience! Does he like deep-sea fishing? Send him on one of South Carolina’s famous deep-sea charters!

Whatever he loves to do, you are bound to be able to find an experience that will leave an everlasting smile on his face! For more adventure ideas, check out this website! It’s loaded with exciting possibilities!

The Gift He Has to Work For

Don’t worry, it’s not that kind of work. In fact, this is one of the funniest gifts I’ve ever used!

Man Crates is a company that has fun unique gifts for dads. The options are numerous, but the best part is the packaging! The gifts are put in crates that are guaranteed to take much longer than wrapping paper to figure out how to open! Watching dad use a crowbar, hammer, knife, and everything else he can find to open this box is not only hilarious but fun for him as well!

I sent one of these to my own dad last year and trust me when he told me he even got the meat cleaver out and was beating on the box at once, it’s an image I’ll never forget! And an experience he definitely enjoyed!!

The Gift That Keeps On Giving

Does the dad in your life love coffee? How about bacon, beer, hot sauce, or cheesecake? Maybe he loves cigars? There is pretty much a gift of the month club for everything!

Sign dad up to receive a new delivery of his favorite thing every month! Dad will be given the ability to see upcoming selections, make changes, and even skip deliveries if he may be out of town. You don’t have to just show dad how much you love him once a year, you can show him every month!

I’m sure there are many options for these clubs out there, but the one I found is called Amazing Clubs. Check it out!

There are so many options out there to choose from and every dad is different. If you’ve been struggling with finding something that will work for dad this year, I hope this list is helpful!

What are some great unique gifts you’ve found for Father’s Day?
