“Anyone who tells you fatherhood is the greatest thing that can happen to you, they are understating it.” ―Mike Myers
Families approach holidays as uniquely as they are. Father’s Day is no exception – some families will go all out, some will barely acknowledge it as a different day of the week. Where ever you fall on the spectrum, it is always nice to be nice.
Sometimes, holidays simply serve as a reminder to acknowledge how you already feel. Life can get busy so having a dedicated day to serve as a reminder to show appreciation for the big guy in your life is always a good idea.
Gift giving always shows more about the giver than the receiver and that is why gifts should be given thoughtfully. We have hunted down and waded through the masses to come up with a great list of ideas for the man in your life.
As long as you are thinking of him you can’t go wrong!
Depending on your preferred vendor you may want to go Apple, but we love this Samsung Gear S3. It has classic styling but still can act as your activity tracker. Plus, it does all the other fun things like answer calls, be used as a payment portal, and GPS.
Well reviewed, this GCI Outdoor rocker has a cup holder and folds flat. This definitely will up your tailgating and soccer practice game.
3. PRESSURIZED GROWLER FOR CRAFT BEER
Now you can have craft beer on tap for up to two weeks. GrowlerWerks will be great for the craft beer connoisseur or a party. Plus this growler is vacuum insulated stainless steel to keep the cold in and has a really fun steampunk look to it!
4. UNLIMITED CARWASH CLUB
I have yet to meet a man who wasn’t more concerned about the cleanliness of his car than the cleanliness of his children. There are several different unlimited carwash options that are comparably priced, but currently, around Houston Mister Carwash has the most locations. They each have no contracts or commitments, it is just a month to month.
5. EVERYTHING-PROOF BLUETOOTH SPEAKER
Bluetooth speakers have become essential to camping, tailgating, beach days, anywhere you’re heading out but they are not all created equal. This one by Vtin has excellent reviews and is still a handy portable size. Want an old-school boombox vibe, then check out this Altec Lansing version.
This is Texas who doesn’t have a half gallon of Bluebell on reserve? This scooper by Midnight Scoop is supposed to slice through it directly from the freezer. Who wants to wait for ice cream?!
7. SPINNING BALANCE BOARD
A little fun and exercise. Got a guy who used to skateboard but really probably shouldn’t take that up again? This Whirly Board would be a fun alternative. Plus it sounds pretty challenging it might just help tone up that dad-bod! 🙂
Here is a great way to get personal. By now you may have culled all of the skanky college shirts but it may be time for a new throwback. What is he into? A favorite movie or place. Honor it with a comfy graphic tee. See you were listening!
9. HIGH-END GROOMING
When we went to London way back before kids one of the things we returned with (and got stuck in customs with) was a badger brush for shaving. My husband still has it. Quality lasts. Consider reserving him a seat in a high-end barber chair for the full hot shave experience or stocking up on his own badger brush and shave cream with great lather.
We love books as a gift because they can be personalized to the giftee with precision!

If your love is a whiskey drinker you might consider picking up Crown Royal’s limited run Texas Mesquite Whiskey. Reviews are mixed but generally good. It wasn’t my husband’s favorite, but others really enjoyed it – very smoky.
12. LEAVE THE LIGHT ON
This little lamp is cute and maybe he’ll adore it, but he’ll adore it more if it is switched on. Maybe for you, it isn’t the light, maybe you haven’t dug out that pair of lacey something he gave you five years ago. I guarantee he doesn’t care where it bunches up. Again, it is about being in the moment and having energy and attention. So, push the lists away, turn on some music, and…
