Father's Day Gift Guide

(Disclaimer: Some of the items on the list are affiliate links but all thoughts and opinions are our own.)

It's that time of year again. That time where you start seeing the "Dads and Grads" (why are these two always combined?) signs everywhere and you start wondering what tie you should get your father this year.  Well, if you are in that particular dilemma right now, put down that tie and check out our list of things that dads would like for Father's Day.

The Sporty Dad

If the dad in your life likes to run around in the mud and push himself like this Sporty Dad, why not sign him and yourself up for a Spartan Race? Think about the bond that will occur as both of you roll under barb wire, hoist 90 lb bags of sand in the air or climb over 8-foot walls. Imagine all of the stories you can tell your friends when you both jump over the fire pit at the finish line. Experiences are always better than things.




The Gamer Dad

Although the new XBox One X will not be out until later this year, if you have a Nintendo Switch you can pick up the latest game for the system: Arms. We will have a full review of this game later this week, but in the mean time games that involve more than one player are always a lot of fun. Why not have a tournament with family and see who will be the king of the hill.

Other great games for gamer dads on the Switch are Mario Kart 8 and Zelda Breath of the Wild. 

The Outdoors Dad

If a good night for your dad is just hanging out in the yard with a drink and an open fire, why not look into getting the DynoTrap insect trap? This Dynatrap Insect Trap attracts and kills mosquitoes and other flying insects across 1 Acre. Attract, trap and kill flying insects including mosquitoes, biting flies, Asian beetles, wasps, hornets, yellow jackets, moths, stink bugs and more! 


Having a great conversation in the backyard will not be cut short by mosquitoes and other insects attacking you as you try to enjoy yourself. This would be a great addition for any backyard.


The Movie Dad

Does you dad like going to the theaters to see all the latest movies? Why not get him some gift cards from Fandango. I mean with the cost of tickets, food and maybe parking, going to the movies can get expensive. There are so many great movies playing now and more coming out soon so make sure that dad enjoys himself at the theaters with a Fandango gift card.  Fandango has some new designs for Father's Day and you can purchase your gift cards here.


Some other cool gifts for the movie dad can be found at the HBO Shop. If he is a Game of Thrones fan, they have him covered. 


Who can not forget this famous phrase said by Tyrion Lannister? I think this phrase is perfect for most days, because we all know things and sometimes are driven to drink because of our children. Dad would look great wearing this shirt at the family barbecue. 

Does it matter what house you represent on your cufflinks? Well, depending on where you go, it might. Pick up these Targaryen house cufflinks and walk around with confidence knowing you have the three headed dragons on your wrists. 

Let us know what you think of our list and if there are any other things we should add. Share with us in the comments what you would like for Father's day this year. 

Thank you again and have a Happy Father's Day.
