Daddy’s Little Girl Does Father’s Day: Your Father’s Day Gift Guide

Posted -

Dad is always there for his little girl — and he doesn’t ask for much. He wants you to be smiling, get good grades, and hang out with him. And he deserves to be celebrated this Sunday on Father’s Day. Unfortunately, shopping for dad is downright difficult (who can distinguish one power tool from another?!) — so here at Her Campus we’ve scoured the stores for the best presents for your papa.

For the Grill Guy

If your father is proud of his work with charcoal and meat, he will flip for the monogrammed triple initial steak brand. This way everyone will know they’re eating his cooked-to-perfection steaks this summer. $40

For the Book & Music Lover

bookends

Dad still not hip to that whole iPod thing? Or that Kindle nonsense? Satisfy his retro urges with these recycled record bookends. As a bonus — humor him on Sunday by letting him play his favorite records for you over breakfast. $40

For the Athlete

If your dad’s schedule is defined by what sporting event is on TV right now, he will love to pour through The 100 Sporting Events You Must See Live by Robert Tuchman. The book details the best sporting events and biggest rivalries that every fan must catch. $12

For the Non-Stop Dad

If your dad needs a break, make sure to pick up a Back2Life Massager for him this week. The massager will ease all that tension in that lower back, keeping him happy and relaxed. $160

For the Docked Dad

boat shoes

If dad’s ideal summer involves the lake or beach, he’s going to adore these Sperry Top-Sider for J.Crew Original Broken-in Boat Shoes. They’re cool, comfortable, and best of all (for dad) — practical. $98

For the Shady Dad

Is your dad the coolest guy around? Keep him young and hip with these Corbin sunglasses from Banana Republic. He’ll feel as cool as the bros on campus — and that is just priceless! $78

For the Good Old Golfer

If golfing makes dad happy, then this Nike Men’s Stretch Tech Golf Polo, will delight him! And while he thinks you’re just indulging his hobby, you know you’re protecting daddy from embarrassing sweat stains and a sunburn, as the shirt provides UPF 30 protection! $45

For the Tool Man

tools

While your dad may dream of building all day long, odds are he’s stuck behind a desk all day. Unleash a little creativity in him with Tool Pens. $6 each
