Father’s Day Gifts Dad Will Actually Enjoy

Dads are not always the easiest to shop for – most of them either want something really practical and boring (like a weed whacker) or nothing at all. But for the great dad in your life, a great, meaningful gift can go a long way in showing your care and appreciation. And, of course, there’s no better day to do that than Father’s Day.

So, what do you get for the guy who has it all? Photo gifts are always really popular for Father’s Day, and there’s a good reason why. What’s a more meaningful gift for dad than something simple, sweet and from the heart – like a photo album that will remind him of his kids? Companies like Artifact Uprising make it so easy to create and organize great family photo albums in minutes. You can even do it right from your phone. Read on for five meaningful gifts that will treat the sweet Dad in your life. 


For the Dad Who Loves to Show Off His Kiddos

As someone who loves photography, I love giving photo gifts for nearly every occasion. Fortunately, I have a husband who, like many dads, loves peppering his office with photos of his little boys. Artifact Uprising is my go-to for photo gifts because of their high-quality prints and products, excellent customer support, and super easy-to-use website and app.  Get 15% off your gift with code EVERYMOM, valid through 6/13.

For the Outdoorsy Dad

Father’s Day falls right at the beginning of summer, making this a great gift for all those dads who love to relax outdoors. Lawn games (like bocce, cornhole, or croquet) can add an element of fun to even the most casual of gatherings, and dad will love teaching his children how to play. The games may not always go as planned (kids have a way of adding a certain amount of chaos to everything, right?), but the memories made on those lazy summer nights will definitely be something to treasure.

For the Sentimental Dad

Oh man, is there anything that makes your heart melt more than watching his heart melt over your littles?! For the fathers who jump at every father-daughter dance opportunity and save each of your son’s art projects, a gift that’s long-lasting and reminds him of his special role is the way to go. We love this kiddo-daddy t-shirt set, and this book, “I Love Your Dad and Here’s Why” is an awesome way for your partner to hear just about much his kids love him, in their own words, for years to come.




For the Fashionable Dad

Some dads, like some of us, feel their best when they’re looking their best. He’s got a special interest in the best shoes, the best grooming tools, all the sunglasses, and probably knows where the nearest haberdashery is. Get dad the latest and greatest when it comes to fashion while still letting the kids help — grab a few (fashion-forward) ties and let them choose their favorites. Adding to his collection of fashion or grooming items that he uses everyday will remind him of just how loved and appreciated he is by his family.
