Music Lover Gifts for Father’s Day
When the country is back and booming after a year of Covid precautions, we’re pretty certain that concert tickets will be on the top of everyone’s gift list. Buy a ticket to a concert that you can attend together and treat him to food and drinks for a special night that he will remember for a lifetime. If Dad lives in another state, a Ticketmaster gift card will let him choose the date and place that works best for his schedule and may even encourage him to bring a friend along.
If he’s more into enjoying music from the comforts of his couch, Sonos has some incredible gifts to amp up (literally) his experience. A clear and walnut record player is a modern, masculine and elegant addition to his home or home office. Pair it with a few records of his favorite bands from high school, college, and other phases of his life. Sonos is also well regarded for their high-quality speakers. They have dozens of top-rated wireless speakers that he can use for his music or to improve his home entertainment system. Some reviews were so impressed by their Sonos, they said that it was as if they were hearing their favorite artist for the very first time. No matter what gift you choose for your tune lovin’ Dad, consider pairing his Father’s Day gift with song lyrics from a band or artist he loves or a personalized message featuring one of our Dad-approved quotes.
Outdoorsman Gifts for Father’s Day
If Dad loves hiking, camping, fishing, or he just enjoys the great outdoors in general, there are a lot of unique gifts you can find for him this year. Coleman is a long-time trusted staple retailer for long-lasting yet affordable outdoor gear. A soft backpack that’s easy on his body and doubles into an insulated, leak-proof cooler pack is a perfect companion for any summertime trek or even an outdoor festival or summer concert.
For the eco-conscious Dad, prAna is a brand committed to lessening environmental impact by using no-waste packaging techniques, natural dyes, and even tags made from coconut fibers. prAna offers sustainably made clothing for the outdoors, yoga, the beach, and just lounging around the house. Dad can look stylish and feel better about wearing great quality clothing from a company that actively looks for ways to better the beautiful world around us.
When in doubt – let Dad pick it out. A gift card to a quality outdoor retailer like REI, prAna, or Bass Pro Shops are always a super safe bet. You can personalize a gift card of any denomination by pairing it with a gift delivered from ProFlowers. Dads who appreciate nature and the great outdoors are sure to appreciate new ways to bring the outdoors in. If you’re not totally sold on sending a cool, masculine floral arrangement, no worries. ProFlowers offers a wide range of potted plants that will last far beyond Father’s Day for years to come.
As a bonus, every time he cares for his little green friend, he can think of the care and thought you put into choosing a special gift that will bring nature into his space. ProFlowers offers several types of hearty succulents that are super easy to care for and require very little sunlight or water. Succulents (also known as air plants) are small enough to fit in anyspace like a bathroom counter, office desk, or side table. Another great potted plant option that’s a Dad-approved favorite is our Double Lucky Bamboo plant. An ancient symbol of good luck and future prosperity, the bamboo plant is a sleek and stylish option that will bring some greenery all year long.
Grillmaster Gifts for Father’s Day
If you can find the Dad in your life manning the grill out on the deck all summer long, then he’s definitely a ‘Grillmaster.’ Some of his (or your) favorite restaurants now offer seasonings so that he can recreate some of his favorite dishes all year long. From Momofuku’s trio of Spicy, Tingly, and Savory seasoned salts to Hooters’ classic seasoned salt blend, do a quick search and see what his favorite eateries have to offer. For a more seasoned chef (pun intended), Williams Sonoma offers a stylish Luxe Infused Spice Variety Pack from Spiceology. This incredible kit includes Sriracha salt, black truffle salt, espresso salt, lime salt, and more. For the picky pescetarian, try out a pink Himalayan salt slab that will let him both cook and season his favorite fish.
Maybe your Dad would appreciate a major utensil upgrade? Support an American crafter or small business owner by searching Etsy for a new set of premium grilling tools. Some sets like this one even include a personalization option so that you can add your Dad’s initials on a sleek black case that serves as a carrier and organizer for everything he needs to grill like a spatula, BBQ fork, tongs, grill brush, basting brush, an engraved all-purpose brush, and more.
Tech-Obsessed Father’s Day Gifts
Does your Dad constantly complain about losing his keys, wallet, or cell phone? A wooden docking station is the perfect gift to store all of his daily items from earbuds to his wallet, and some even have the ability to charge his iPhone. Support crafters and woodworkers across the country when you purchase his gift locally or from Etsy. Many sellers even let you choose the type or color of wood for his docking station and add his name, initials, or a short, sweet personal message like ‘#1 Dad.’
