5 Tips to Find Gifts for Dad

1. What are his hobbies and Interests?

What are your dad’s hobbies? Does he like to golf, fish, hunt, grill, camp, shoot guns, drink beer, work on cars, learn about history, cook, run, hike, listen to music, collect art, travel, or is he involved in politics? You could consider picking out a present specifically for what he is interested in. For example, if your dad loves to golf, check out the gifts on this list that relate to golf. Look over the list of gifts below to see if there is something that points you in the right direction.

2. Is he the outdoorsy type?

If you need a Christmas, birthday, or Father’s Day gift ideas for dads that are into the outdoors, consider buying them a gift specifically for the type of activity they do most. If your dad enjoys fishing, check out our list fishing gifts. Consider emergency gifts as well, something that he can use for camping or in a natural disaster situation might be something he would like. Some examples would be a solar lantern, 9 in 1 emergency tool, or the camping lantern with a ceiling fan that we have on this list. If your dad likes to backpack consider getting him a GPSs, or a GPS watch so he can track his activity and have a backup tool in case he gets lost.

3. What doesn’t he have?

If your dad is always looking at certain things online, or is always using a particular item that is beat up or out or date, consider getting him the latest and greatest version. Consider things like grilling accessories, gifts for his car, camping gifts, a new pair of hunting boots, a new cooler, a new razor, a bluetooth speaker to listen to music and audio books, a new compressor for the garage, a jerky maker, a shop vacuum, a new pair of headphones for shooting, or something that the whole family can use together, like the croquet set we have on this list of gift ideas for dads. There are some gifts on the list below that literally everyone could use, like an insulated YETI coaster or a gourmet gift basket with his favorite types of foods. A YETI coaster is an especially good gift idea for dads that drink a lot of beer.

4. Is there anything he asked for?

If you have one of those dads that always just buys anything he wants and you can’t think of anything, don’t hesitate to ask him what he wants or to give you a wish list. He might give you a vague idea of what he wants, then you’ll have to do some research online to find the best version of the product he wants that fits your price range. It’s 2017, there are so many cool gifts out there that there is no way he “has everything.”

5. Personalize when possible

Personalized is always better if the option is available. For example, the Callaway golf balls on our list can be personalized with up to three lines of text. So, you can add a message to your dad or add his name so he always knows which ball is his after everyone tees off. There are also gifts specifically for holidays like Father’s Day. An example of this would be the “Dad picture frame” on the list below.

If this list of gift ideas for dad doesn’t help you find a home run gift, hopefully it at least points you in the right direction.
