40 Best Father’s Day Gift Ideas for All Budgets

40 fun, useful, and unique Father’s Day gift ideas for dads of all interests and all budgets from $14 and up.

So… uh… Father’s Day is sneaking up on me way too fast. And today, I realized it’s about 3 weeks away!

Last month, I shared all of my favorite Mother’s Day gift ideas, so it seemed only right to round it out with a Father’s Day guide too.

In preparation, I not-so-stealthily asked Robert what were some of the coolest Father’s Day gifts he could possibly get (besides good ol’ quality time with the fam).

And these were what he came up with, a few of his favorites that he already owns, and a few that threw in as perfect ideas to give him and my dad. Just in case you need some gift ideas for dad in your life.

Not gonna lie… I kind of what a few for myself.

Meridian Cordless Trimmer – This trimmer is a pro at preventing razor burn, shaving bumps, and ingrown hairs.

  1. Thank you Lauren for some good ideas for Son’s Father’s Day gift! Corn Hole Boards it is!

  2. Love your ideas! I’m planning a small fold-up table for next to the grill. But I must say, I’m looking forward to when my kids are old enough to choose Daddy’s gifts themselves – that will be interesting. My son, when he was 3, wanted to get Daddy pink slippers for Fathers Day!
