If you think about it, we get some of the best things in life from our fathers, and I'm not just talking about their killer genetics. Over the years, they inevitably pass down their favorite books, movies, music and TV shows — and, if you're lucky, their knack for corny jokes — and end up shaping us into some really cool people.

So, while you could lean into a more practical gift this year, I say switch things up and surprise your dad (or your husband, boyfriend, brother or general father figure) with something that speaks to his fun-loving style. Here are 30 unique Father's Day gifts for the men who have everything except a good laugh courtesy of their favorite kids.


Give the new dad or father-to-be in your life some serious looks to live up to with this cheeky coffee table book. Each page features vintage photos of real dads in their glory days (think thick mustaches, collared shirts and short shorts), so he'll have plenty of style inspiration.

When in doubt, a hipster dad could always use more beard oil. Go with this nourishing bottle from Goodfellow & Co. that pairs fresh coconut with a hint of cedar wood for one subtle, yet sophisticated fragrance. Best of all?

Show your movie-loving dad that you've been paying attention with a double feature: a reusable popcorn bowl and a copy of "Eat What You Watch."

If you really want to go above and beyond, pair the gift with a variety of seasonings, a butter-melting bowl or a scratch-off poster.
