From a book dedicated to dad jokes to a salami bouquet, we’ve rounded up unique gifts that fit the bill. He’ll be thrilled, and you’ll feel like the favorite child. Score. 

Psst...Want more ideas? Check out all of our other Father's Day gift guides here.


A book entirely dedicated to dad jokes…

He loves to crack one at least once a day, so might as well give him some new material to work with. This book is packed with joke-telling pointers, profiles on legendary dad jokesters, and more. He’ll get such a kick out of it, he’ll probably display it on his bedside table. ($12.79, Amazon)

This fun, handmade tee is super-relatable and will make everyone who sees him in it smile. It comes in more than 10 colors and is available in sizes S through 5XL. Bonus: It’s so soft, he’ll probably never want to take it off. (Don’t say we didn’t warn ya.) Love ya, Dad. ($20.79+, MAGapparel via Etsy)

He shoots, he scores. Perfect for any basketball enthusiast, this bowl lets him dunk cereal, soup crackers, and literally whatever else he can think of. It’s a small gift, but if your dad loves some healthy competition, it’ll keep you two busy for the entirety of breakfast. ($25, Uncommon Goods)

A game that’ll bring some joy to family dinner…

Because dad jokes and Father’s Day go hand in hand. This collection of riddles has 300 dad-approved jokes that’ll work as conversation starters or a fun game night that'll make everyone belly laugh. Psst: They’re not too raunchy, so you can use ’em around kids 7+. ($15, Uncommon Goods)

A hilarious journal you’ll be excited to gift him…

Think of it as a concise dad log. You’ll be able to record all of the ridiculous, humorous, and heartwarmingly dad things he does on a daily basis. Just when you thought he couldn’t get more cliche. The prompted journal has lots of space for you to record his most precious moments. ($14.40, Amazon)

A bathroom accessory he never knew he needed… 

It might make him chuckle, but it’s also super practical. With this bidet he’ll use less toilet paper (which we love for the environment) and he’ll leave the restroom with a cleaner rear. It takes less than 10 minutes to install, doesn’t require electricity or special plumbing, and is fully adjustable — plus it’s available in a handful of colors. That’s a win-win-win, if you ask us. ($99, Tushy)

A baseball cap that he’ll at first huff at…

But then quickly realize he adores. Because he’s not old, he’s just a bit retro. And with his sense of humor, he’ll have no problem wearing this around. ($23.42, Redbubble)

Buy it


Personalized superhero socks that’ll really make him smile…

He is a hero of yours, after all. Might as well show him with a laughable pair of socks he’ll wanna wear to work every darn day. All you’ve gotta do is upload a photo of his face and select the size. ($19.95, Firebox)

Buy it


And a personalized barbecue apron to celebrate his grilling…

He brags about his perfectly seared steaks. Continue to inflate his ego with an apron that crowns him the grill master. He may think he’s the hottest thing in town, so better not serve up a dose of reality now, especially with Father’s Day around the corner. You can further personalize the apron with his name and a different quote if he’s got a go-to saying while flipping burgers. ($29.99, Firebox)

Buy it


A board game that’ll make family game night more rowdy…

Draw a card to set the topic of discussion, and then roll the die to determine the letter your responses must start with. Once you flip the timer, you’ll all be racing to write down answers that work. Once the timer runs out, you’ll be able to debate what each person came up with. Beware — if he’s great at the act of negotiating and defending, he’ll probably pull out the win every single time. ($29.99, Amazon)

Buy it


Sauce dip clips that’ll he will actually obsess over…

Designed to clip onto the air vents in his car, he’ll never have to go without his favorite dipping sauce again. So when he picks up fries or some chicken nuggets, he can safely dip ‘n’ drive. No more mess or eyes being taken off the road while he’s munching. Safety first. ($10.90/2 pack, Amazon)

An electric chainsaw carving knife that’ll have him doing a double take…

It’s like his childhood dream came true. Aka a carving knife that resembles a chainsaw — great for funny pictures and scaring guests. The stainless steel blade will slice through turkey, ribs, and whatever else he’s cooking, while the double handle provides a surprisingly high amount of control. Long story short: It’s actually a very legit tool to have in the kitchen. ($79.95, Grommet)

Buy it


A salami bouquet, because the way to his heart is through his stomach…

Real flowers may die within the week. This salami bouquet will last wayyy longer. You can choose from either a three- or six-sausage arrangement. It’ll be shipped directly to his door. He’ll let out a big laugh and you’ll get to enjoy each gourmet salami with some cheese and crackers. Cheers. ($50+, Food52)

Buy it


Golf ball whiskey chillers so his drink is never watered down…

He’s obsessed with heading to the links, so keep his game going even while he’s resting at home. Your sports-obsessed dad will love ’em. Plus they’ll look that much cooler resting in his favorite glass. He’ll just have to remember to place them in the freezer a few hours before use. ($30/2 pack, Uncommon Goods)

A fill-in-the-blank bonus dad worksheet he’ll frame immediately…

Father figures, assemble. Maybe you’re not related by blood, but he’s still the best dad around.

A deserved feeling on Father’s Day. ($4.33, PaperEtiquette via Etsy)
