Father’s Day gift ideas for every type of dad
Above: Rio is trying to find the perfect gift idea for Father’s Day.
Father’s Day is fast approaching on June 20 which means it’s time to do some shopping for the father figure in your life or the father of your children. I always find shopping for women easier for me given that I have a sense of what girls want, but when it comes to men I tend to feel overwhelmed. choice of gifts. I started wishing there was a one stop shop for all kinds of guys. A magical place that makes men feel like I feel when I walk on Fifth Avenue. And then I realized… that there are. This is called Dick’s sporting goods!
Dick’s is the perfect place to find a gift for dad this season, whether he’s a golf enthusiast, an outdoor adventurer, a barbecue man or just a sports fan. I got to attend a little Zoom presentation with the folks from Dick’s Sport Goods the other day and they gave me so many gift ideas for my husband (um, kids of course). Now it’s going to be more difficult for me to narrow down our selection of gifts when before I had a hard time thinking about options. It’s a much better battle to fight. Without further ado, here are some Father’s Day gift ideas for every type of daddy!
The golfer dad
He rides around in polo shirts, uses words like “bogie” and “eagle” and may well be a member of the local country club. Surprise the golf enthusiast in your life with golf clothing or shoes, a brilliant set of clubs, a new golf course bag, golf balls, or a accessories this will help him take his game to the next level. Maybe he’ll even shoot under 80 before he turns 80.
The outdoor dad
He has compasses, tackle boxes, oars of various sizes and knows what to do if he sees a bear in the woods. If dad’s middle name is adventure, he might like something that says weekend fun, like a kayak, boat, paddle boards or maybe material for Cycling and cycling. If he is in hiking you can’t go wrong with a tent, sleeping bag, or other camping gear. If he’s more in peach, a new tackle box, clothes or boots could be the ticket!
The trendy dad
He knows what Yeezys are and might even do some videos on TikTok. If your dad likes current trends, you can always surprise him with some buttons, elegant shoes, blue light glasses or maybe a classic pair of raybans.
The fitness daddy
He makes protein shakes and threatens your boyfriend with the amount he can bench press. If he likes hitting weights and staying in shape, Dick’s has a great selection of home gym equipment as good as men’s health and wellness products. He may also like a hot item of the moment, a theragun masseur for sore muscles.
The social dad
He loves cold drinks, pool parties, tailgates and isn’t afraid to knock you down in a game of badminton. If daddy likes to have fun in the summer in the sun, he can enjoy a waterproof speaker or a new one swimsuit. If receiving people is his jam, spring for some garden games, a grill, smoker or stove, or a relaxation hammock.
The sports fan dad
He is often seen wearing a jersey and his mood on Sundays is dictated by the fate of his team. If you are shopping for a sports fanatic, some licensed equipment would be a great idea. Dick’s has a wide selection of jerseys, clothing and accessories that will help him encourage his favorite team to score while you score points with Dad.
