The Key to Perfect Presents for Dad on Father's Day

Whether he's your Dad or your baby's Daddy, this is one guy who's worked overtime through hard work and unconditional love to etch his way into your heart. He deserves something incredible for Father's Day, so get inspired by our guide to the perfect presents for every kind of Dad.

1

Appeal to His Soft Side

Even the most macho guy turns into a big Teddy bear when he puts on his "Dad" hat. Honor this aspect of Dad's personality with something symbolically soft - like a framed nostalgic photo - or something literally soft - like the plushest bath robe or slippers you can find. (Bonus points if you make him laugh by throwing in an actual Teddy bear.)

2

Appeal to His Tough Side

If Dad has a rough exterior, play into his macho façade with workshop tools, exercise equipment, or a subscription to a cigar-of-the-month club.

3

Appeal to His Inner Child

Vintage toys, candy dispensers, and personalized puzzles are just a few gifts that will bring out the boy inside the man.

4

Lift His Spirits

What's Dad's poison? If beer is his thing, get Dad a set of beer steins or a home brewing kit. If he's wild about whiskey, gift him with personalized miniature oak barrels or whiskey stones to keep his cocktail chilled. Get creative with his favorite liquor.

5

Be a Good Sport

 If Dad is a sports guy, home in on his favorite game and get him something to enhance it, like monogrammed golf clubs, a collectible baseball, or a personalized football jersey.

6

Get Silly

If Dad's a total goofball, get him a gag gift, if only to see his face light up in laughter.

7

Get Smart

If Dad's a scholar or a history buff, invest in books or artifacts that appeal to his brainy side.

8

Make Him Dapper

Dad will always be beautiful on the inside, so enhance his exterior with a smart watch, a sophisticated blazer, or a cool pair of shades.
