30 Unique Father's Day Gift Ideas for Quirky Dads
Does Dad dig things like beer and beard maintenance? We've got the perfect gift list.
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.
If this mug doesn't make Dad laugh, nothing will. Stake your claim as his favorite kid with this hilarious cup that he can use for his morning coffee or evening tea. If you really want to go above and beyond, you could pair the gift with specialty tea or gourmet coffee.
If there's one thing that hipster dads love, it's nitro cold brew. Help Dad get his fix right at home with this two-in-one brewer and dispenser. He'll fill the bag with coffee grounds; add cold, filtered water; and refrigerate overnight. Need more ideas? Try a pour-over kettle, affogato bombs or an automatic milk frother.
For the dad with a great sense of humor, we highly recommend "Stuff I Can't Remember: A Personal Organizer." This cheeky notebook contains 150 pages with prompts for passwords, birthdays, doctor appointments and all the other stuff he usually forgets. He'll get a good laugh and real use out of this one!
Add a special touch to Dad's man cave with this eye-catching dart board. The piece is crafted from compressed, self-healing sisal fibers, and the set includes easy-to-use mounting hardware, two sets of darts, a throw line and a throw line measuring tape. Now he can enjoy the classic pub game at home and perfect his throws!
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? The beard oil is silicone-, paraben- and sulfate-free, so he doesn't have to deal with harsh chemicals.
If he's a techie (or has a good sense of humor), then surprise Dad with these notebooks "from the Stone Age." Each one is made from upcycled floppy disks and comes packed with 100 blank pages. Best of all? For just $20, he'll receive a set of three.
Not all heroes wear capes — some prefer funny aprons. Thank your dad for feeding the family (and manning the grill when no one else wants to) with this hilarious and handy garment. The apron is crafted from durable polyester and will help protect his clothes every time he preps dinner.
Challenge Dad to name or sing that tune by gifting him the Kulture Karaoke Game. The deck boasts 150 cards with classic Hip-Hop and R&B categories, plus detailed instructions for how to play. He can show off his musical knowledge and school the rest of the family.
If he loves burgers but hates greasy fingers (or wasting perfectly good ingredients), then treat Dad to his very own Burger Buddy. The reusable, silicone bowl conveniently traps juice and prevents toppings from falling out the bottom. The innovative product also features a square base that can be set on any flat surface.
If he's a cool dad with an even cooler sneaker collection, then hit him with Sneaker Freaker: The Ultimate Sneaker Book by Simon Wood. The hefty volume covers 100 years of sneaker history and includes gorgeous, high-gloss pics and insider knowledge (just in case he needs even more style inspo).
Pull out all the stops for your pizza-loving dad and spoil him with a new multi-fuel outdoor pizza oven. This Ooni Karu has a custom-designed fuel tray that maximizes airflow and delivers a powerful blast of searing flame. The result? An authentic stone-baked pizza in 60 seconds. You could also pair the gift with a new dough docker, funny pizza socks or special pizza scissors.
If he's sentimental and into superheroes, then surprise Dad with a custom comic book. This original story puts your kiddo's name right on the page and then sends their "Super Dad" to save the day. They'll love reading the action-packed tale together, and your S.O. will treasure the keepsake and quality time.
Now, here's a T-shirt that your partner will proudly wear. While the kids paint a picture for the World's Greatest Dad, honor his other title with this cheeky crewneck. The shirt is available in five colors, six sizes and is crafted from breathable and lightweight cotton (so he can wear it all summer).
If Dad's always complaining about cell phones at the dinner table (or you know, cell phones in general), then hit him with this hilarious gag gift. The interior can fit multiple devices and features a real padlock, so everyone can enjoy some distraction-free family time. Just make him promise to not let the power go to his head.
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." The silicone bowl can go directly in the microwave and is ready to receive popcorn kernels and candy. Meanwhile, Dad can also use the companion book to whip up a special snack from When Harry Met Sally and other iconic movies. 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.
For the dad who loves The Office, we highly recommend a custom Dundie Award. This replica stands at about 10 inches tall and includes a golden plaque that you can personalize with his job well done. We have a feeling that he'll want to display it on his desk, bookshelf or nightstand ASAP.
Now, this is what we call a utility belt. Make Dad the hit of any party (and help him go hands-free while he mans the grill or mingles with friends) by gifting him this adjustable beer belt. The accessory can hold six standard cans and should definitely be paired with his favorite beverage.
He'll feel like a mad scientist and a master mixologist with this cocktail smoker in his toolkit. The smoker is super easy to use; all he has to do is fill a glass with his favorite drink, place the white oak design on top, add the smoking chips and voila! He'll have a smoke-infused spirit.
For the proud pet parent on your list, try this backpack-style cat carrier. The vessel is crafted from durable (read: scratch-proof) polyester, and it features a unique plastic dome that offers a panoramic view of the world. Now Dad never has to leave home without his other favorite child.
Something tells us that Dad would love a mini fridge for his workshop or garage. Make it happen with this bright-red stainless steel unit designed to look like an ordinary toolbox. He'll enjoy having drinks in arm's reach and appreciate being able to lock the cooler up when he's done for the night.
