Dad Gifts for Organizing
You know I had to put in my own section devoted to organizing gifts that Dad is sure to LOVE! Be sure to check out some of my unique picks that will keep him organized for years to come.
6. Shoe Shaper
Not only will these shoe shapers keep your Dad’s shoe shape maintained, but they will also keep them smelling fresh. These aromatic red cedar wood shoe trees naturally deodorize your Dad’s shoes when not in use. Help to keep his most loved shoes looking top-notch.
Why not throw in an automated tie rack with the traditional tie and socks present? This tie rack automatically rotates with the touch of a button. Now he can store his ties or belts in an organized system. Plus your Dad can easily install it in his closet on a hanging rod or wired shelving. Plus, the system has LED lights that make it easy for him to see which tie or belt he might need.
Help Dad keep his sunglass collection orderly with this organizer with 12 separate compartments. I love the look of the faux leather exterior with the clear glass top so he can easily find the pair he wants. This would also work great for storing other accessories including cuff links and tie clips.
Time to upgrade your Dad’s shaving set. This travel shaving set is a must for any dad that travels. No longer does he need to carry around cheap cartridge razors and aerosol foams. Now he can shave like the gentleman he is. This set is designed with quality shaving products to last much longer than what your Dad is used to. Each kit contains everything he is going to need to get the best shave including a safety razor, badger hair brush, shave stand, alum block, shave bowl, shave soap, razor blades, and a canvas and leather bag.
Help simplify your Dad’s morning routine with this clothing valet system. Made from solid hardwood that complements any room decor, this system includes a mirror, tie rack, pants/shirt hanging area, and metal shoe rack. Now your Dad can get ready in a flash with the help of this neat little system.
Gifts for the New Dad
Congratulations to the NEW dads this year! Maybe you are expecting and would like to celebrate early or you have a recent addition to the family, here are some great ideas that he will love in the upcoming sleepless months.
11. Theragun Mini
Cue the sleepless nights and aches and pains that arise with a newborn. Give the gift of massage to your new Dad with the Theragun Mini. Like the classic Theragun, this massage system is great for muscle relief on the go. I personally bought this for my husband for Father’s Day last year and he LOVES it! The massager has a long battery life of 150 minutes, but you only need a few to get some much need relief with this little guy. Who has the time anyway when you have a new baby. Bonus, he might even let you use it.
12. Stroller Power
Every new Dad is pushing a stroller. Help to keep him powered up with this carrying hook that is also a power bank all in one. Now he can easily charge two devices all day and hold up to 25 pounds of weight. This would be great for charging your phone or even a tablet for an older child.
Maybe your new Dad is missing gardening this year. Give him back some of the fun with this less time-consuming option of a mini herb garden. This system has a built-in grow light and self-watering mechanism so if he is too sleep-deprived and accidentally skips watering for a few days, he can still have a thriving garden.
Maybe your new Dad is heading back to work. Help him easily transition back to the office with this picture frame. I love the design of this digital frame because you can upload images from your phone at home right to his desk at work. Now he doesn’t have to miss one moment of fun and excitement at home.
Give the gift of quiet this year! This noise-cancelling headphones will allow your new Dad to can get some peace and quiet. These are some of the best options for headphones under $100, plus the cushioned earpieces are comfortable for sleeping if he wants to get a quick nap away from the kids.
Gifts for the Outdoorsy Dad
Did you grow up kayaking or rock climbing? You probably have an outdoorsy Dad. Why not get him something that he would love for his next great adventure this year?
16. Jetboil Flash
The Jetboil Flash is on my husband’s list of top products to purchase for a reason. This lightweight and easily packable design is great for camping or backpacking. It allows you to boil things quickly. The MiniMo is another great option with a shorter cook cup that is easier to handle, plus it has the ability to simmer things that the Flash does not. Definitely upgrade to the MiniMo if your dad already has the Jetfoil Flash.
17. NeoAir XLite
Sleeping on the ground in your sleeping bag can be tough especially as you get older. The NeoAir XLite is the most versatile pad for backpacking. Plus, it is insulated enough for three-season camping and small enough to pack down to the size of a water bottle. Give the gift of a good night's sleep to Dad this year. I bet you will be his favorite.
18. Lighthouse 600
If you have a Dad that is into camping, then this LED lantern is perfect for him. Allow your Dad to easily see in the dark for food preparation and time around the campfire. Plus, he can use the battery to charge a device. There is an option for a solar panel so that he can easily charge the battery with a hand crack if he forgets to charge it ahead of his trip.
Just because he is an outdoorsy Dad, doesn’t mean that he isn’t a coffee snob. The Aeropress is perfect to get him that REAL cup of coffee he desires even if the nearest Starbucks is miles away. This system makes the best coffee with the least amount of cleanup. There is a full-sized model and a Go version that gives you the same great coffee with less weight to carry around.
20. Sawyer Squeeze
If your Dad loves hiking trails then this water purification system is for him. Ideal for a multi-day trip with the squeeze filter system that is the fastest and easiest way to provide drinking water. Dad can either fill up the pouch and drink straight from the filter or put the water in his water bottle.
Gifts for the Backyard Dad
Especially now, the backyard is an oasis for many Dads. Why not give his favorite space an upgrade and make it everything he might want? He might even let you have a slice of hot pizza from his new Father's Day gift. Now that's a win for everyone!
Maybe your Dad is a grill master, but he also loves a good slice of pizza. Why not consider the Ooni’s pizza ovens? These ovens offer high-heat cooking typically reserved for artisanal pizza. Available in either gas-powered or wood-burning pellets to easily complement the fuel choice that he already has. Plus, it can cook a pizza in under a minute. Yummm!
Many of your Dads have been making the switch to smart home systems. Why not help him transform his backyard with the Kasa Outdoor Smart Plugs? These plugs are not only waterproof but also give you an extra outlet with two spots that can be controlled independently. The system comes with the Kasa app to easily start a schedule or set a timer for anything outdoor like string lights or spotlights with the click of some buttons on his phone.
Many parties have come to a halt due to biting mosquitos. Maybe Dad would love to be bite free this year with the Thermacell Patio Shield. This model offers a 20-foot coverage area that is fully rechargeable to keep bugs repelled for up to 12 hours. Another great feature is that this system does not give off any odor so it is nearly undetectable. Get one for Dad now and he will be thanking you all summer long.
Another wonderful item for the backyard that would give Dad some amazing relaxation this year would be this hammock. With thousands of reviews, this one is the ultimate for Dad to be easily resting and recharging this summer.
Sometimes additional seating is required in the backyard. Why not get Dad an outdoor rocking chair for some additional seating? Plus, this chair can be compactly stored when not in use. Throw the chair in the car for an outdoor baseball game or camping adventure to help him relax in style.
