Father’s Day 2020 is just around the corner. It’s this Sunday on the 21st of June- just a bit of time left to make all your plans.
Before getting flooded by the surge of Father’s Day gift ideas, there are a couple of things you should ask yourself. Is your dad the kind to laugh at a joke? Would he like a present that’s funny and clever? Would he like a traditional gift like a wristwatch or a wallet? Or would he opt for a utility product- something that’ll help him in day-to-day life?
Well, it really depends on your dad’s personality and the relationship you have with him. Nevertheless, listed below is a bunch of Father’s Day ideas you can take inspiration from:
Classic Gifts for the Most Classic Man in Your Life
Custom Pet Portrait
Get a portrait of your dad’s favorite pet, along with his/her name on it. This is truly one of the most touching gifts you can give him.
His favorite brand of apparel
T-shirts, shirts, jeans, shorts, ats or maybe a sleek pair of shoes – ask yourself what your dad would like the most. In case you are confused about which brands to choose from, Old Navy, Calvin Klein, and Nike are among the most popular. Be quick to decide. You can still take advantage of those Father’s Day discounts.

With a metal frame and a variety of colors to choose from, these sunglasses come with 100% UV protection and scratch-resistance. For any Top Gun fans out there, the classic polarized ones will make your dad take a feel trip “Future’s so bright you gotta wear shades” – you might want to add this famous song title by Timbuk 3 as a message with the gift.
Weber Q1000 Liquid Propane Grill
Comes with ultra-durability and a small dimension of 14.5 inches high by 27 inches. Its push-button ignition helps to heat the grill up in about 10 minutes. Arranging a picnic with the family would be so easy with this grill – your dad can start flipping the picnic burgers right away.
Illy iperEspresso Coffee Machine
Besides the cool look, it makes the perfect cup of espresso and coffee with the press of a button. It’s very slim so it won’t take up much room on your counter. This is an excellent gift for coffee-obsessed men who might want to mix things up a bit.
A Virtual Reunion
Planning a day out with your dad would be a great idea, although, given the current circumstances, it might not be possible.
However, a virtual gathering with the family can be as memorable! And since your whole family is not gathering in real life, you won’t have to spend as much time or money!
Pick a platform – Zoom seems to be the most popular nowadays, and you can record the whole meetup! Get these cool Zoom backgrounds to take your virtual celebration to the next level. Calling his best buddies to join the virtual celebration might add another surprise element to the meeting.
Craft Your Love with These DIY Gift Ideas
Nothing beats the feeling of watching dad open a gift on Father’s Day and smile with excitement. It does not have to be the prettiest gift – the fact you made it with your own hands should be enough to make him happy.
Play with the colors to make dad’s morning coffee a little bit better. A colorful cup to remind him of you every time he gets his daily caffeine!
Rocky Picture Frame
Dad rocks! Get some small stones and pebbles to make a picture frame to show him the message. Here’s a cool guide on how to craft it.
Well, this might sound a bit old-school, but this is one place you can get creative. In case you don’t have the time, Etsy is a great place to get handmade and vintage photo albums. A photo book filled with your memories will surely bring joyful tears into his eyes. Plus, they look nice on the coffee tables or shelves as decoration.
If you find it hard to manage just, put all the things he loves in a nicely decorated hamper or jar and seal it with a warm message.
Make Your Dad Laugh with These Father’s Day Cards Ideas
You don’t have to be the world’s best artist to make the best Father’s Day card – a creative mind, basic paper crafting supplies, and lots of heart are all you need. A perfect Father’s Day card has the best combination of both the look and the words.
The Sentimental Sweetheart
“I love you” and “World’s Best Dad” are still the best Father’s Day card messages, no doubt. But you can always pick some “fun” or “sweet” writing styles to make the card a little playful.
The Dad Who Does It All
Take your time to show how much you care about all the things this big guy did for you. Reflect the love you have for him in the writing. “Dad, you’re someone to look up to no matter how tall I’ve grown” might be a funny yet touching message.
The Dad Who was Right
We all had our bad times with dad. It’s time you let him know you feel sorry for the times he was right. “During the whole time I was preparing the card for you, I was looking to my left because you were always right” – is a great one.
Truly Legendary Dad
“May the force be with you. Happy Father’s Day.” – is a great way to tell dad he’s truly out of this world!

End the Father’s Day Celebration on a Sweet Note – Father’s Day Dinner
Cooking for your dad will always be a great present. If he does not have any specific preferences, cauliflower hot wings, carrot hot dogs, or some classic cheeseburgers are must-try. Chocolate honeycomb, Truffle fudge, or Cupcakes would be great for desserts. Add your father’s favorite toppings and side dishes and voila! Your meal is complete.
Instead of going with the trend of Father’s Day ideas, I would suggest you take a trip down memory lane and find the one thing that your father really cares about. Make it personal, make it memorable, and maybe share a few laughs over it!
And last of all, don’t forget to thank him for the cool genes!
