Father's Day Gifts for Men Other Than Your Dad

Celebrate all the dads you know this Father’s Day! Whether you're shopping for your dad, your granddad, someone else's dad, or a man who's like a dad in your life, there are plenty of great gift ideas to consider. Keep reading for our Father’s Day gift picks for all the guys on your list:

For the New Dad

If you’re shopping for a new dad, cozy gifts are likely to be appreciated. Men's slippers make a great gift for new fathers, who need slip-resistant footwear for walking around the house. There are some slippers for men that can even be worn outside, such as suede leather moccasins. They come in a variety of styles and colors, including those with flannel linings for extra warmth and softness.

Quilted clog slippers are another option when shopping for a Father’s Day gift. This slipper style is equipped with a grippy rubber outsole that won’t slip on hard floors, along with a cushioned footbed for a plush feel underfoot. He can slip them on and off easily, so they’re a good footwear option for placing by the bed or the front door.

New dads might also like a personalized throw blanket for cuddling with the baby. Luxe cashmere throws come in an array of colors, and some are made from premium lambswool. If you think he’d prefer an easy-care throw made from a high-performance material, consider a cotton/acrylic blend with a velour finish. This fabric is soft and provides a light layer of warmth, but it’s also durable and machine-washable—which are qualities every new parent can appreciate.

For the Beach-Loving Dad

There are plenty of gift ideas for any dad who loves the beach. Men’s swim trunks and a personalized beach towel can be tucked into a gift bag or folded into a gift box for a thoughtful Father’s Day gift he can use during the summer season. Water shoes are another idea to consider when shopping for a dad who enjoys spending time at the shore.

When shopping for swim trunks, look for a durable, fast-drying fabric like polyester. An elastic waist with a drawstring ensures a comfortable custom fit, while interior lining adds coverage and keeps him comfortable. Chlorine-resistant fabric is a good option for any beach-going dad because it withstands not only chlorine but also salt, sun, and sweat without fading or losing structural integrity.

For the Fashionable Dad

Men's cashmere sweaters are an excellent Father’s Day gift for the man who always wants to look his best. They come in multiple styles, so you can find one that’s right for any dad. If he likes a classic look, consider a fine-gauge cashmere crewneck. This type of sweater can be layered over a collared shirt for a dressy look or worn over a lightweight tee for casual yet upscale style.

V-neck cashmere sweaters are another great option—they come in a range of colors from neutral to bright and have a look that falls somewhere between traditional and trendy. For the sporty dad who still wants to look stylish, consider a quarter-zip cashmere pullover. Any one of these sweater styles can be paired with men's jeans, chinos, or even cargo pants.

For the Outdoorsy Dad

Shopping for the outdoorsy dad is easy when you go for apparel gifts made for comfortable outdoor wear. Men’s T-shirts come in sizes to fit every body and are available in a wide range of colors and prints. There are also men’s polo shirts made from high-performance fabrics for the active dad—some of which provide UPF 50 protection for covered areas. They come in a rainbow of hues and shades, so you should have no problem finding one in his favorite color.

If you want a high-end gift for the dad who loves his yard, outdoor furniture is an option to consider. Treat him to an Adirondack chair made from eco-friendly recycled materials, or give him a wooden lounge chair that reclines for relaxing on the patio or by the pool.

For the Pet Dad

There are even gifts for the dog-dad on your gift list. If the man you’re shopping for treats his pup like part of the family, consider giving him a pet-themed gift. Dog hoodies and men's hoodies can often be found in the same color or complementary colors for a matching look. Or you could give him a new dog leash or collar that’s embroidered with his pet’s name for a personal touch.

Another idea is to give the pet dad on your list an outfit for walking the dog. Men’s elastic waist shorts with a T-shirt in his favorite color will work for warm weather walks, or you could give him men’s sweatpants with a matching sweatshirt for cooler days.

Any Father’s Day gift can be made even more special with a heartfelt card. Include a brief note that tells him how much you appreciate his presence in your life for a gift he’ll treasure for a lifetime.
