Are you struggling to find inspiration of what to get dad for Father's Day? Say less.

We know the holiday is right around the corner and there's nothing more frustrating than doing last minute shopping, not to mention if you have no idea what to get in the first place! Don't panic, we've got you covered with fun options based on your specific father's personality.

Check out some gift ideas you can grab dad that'll have him smiling from ear to ear.

The Handyman

Is your dad the guy who's always looking to fix something? Even if it's not broken? Have you noticed him spending hours on end working on the same car for the past 9 months?

If so, grab your dad a toolbox organizer. They come in a variety of shapes and sizes so he can fit it under the kitchen sink or store it in the garage. Help him give his trusty hammers and screws a nice home until he's ready to put in some elbow grease.

Chef "Dadardee"

The way to a man's heart is through his stomach and that's why the kitchen is your dad's sanctuary. So what's a better gift than a family cooking class?

There are ample online sources to book tickets for local group classes with a professional chef to teach you how to make any dish, from a savory tiramisu to a delectable goulash. And if your dad feels more comfortable in his own kitchen, sign him up for recipe delivery boxes. Every month, he'll get a new and exciting dish to cook at home. The best part: He won't have to buy the groceries! The delivery comes equipped with the ingredients placed right at your door.

It's the perfect, convenient way to spend time together and get a taste meal too!

The Daredevil

So your father's the guy who loves to reminisce on his "heydays." The days when he used to do all the fun stuff your mom would never allow because it's "too dangerous." Especially since he already strained his back moving the couch.

Well, help dad relive his youth by setting up a reservation to test ride some blood pumping cruisers. Companies, like Xtreme Experience, let you test exotic sports cars on an actual racetrack. Take your pick between a Ferrari, Lamborghini, Porsche, McLaren, and others and ride off into the sunset...Well, at least around the lap a good three times.

Mr. Romeo


How cute is it when you see dad doing all that romantic stuff for your mom? You now like him bringing her fresh flowers every month or how about date night once a week and maybe even a few surprise purchases waiting for her when she gets home. Nothing makes him happier than putting a smile on her face, so let's do the same for him.

Set "Pop" up with a relaxing day for himself. You can book a spa treatment for him to get his zen on or perhaps arrange for a masseuse to come through for a house call while the rest of the family prepares his favorite meal.

What? Dads need romance too! *shrugs*

From Class Clown to King Dad of Jokes


Making people laugh is just his thing. Whether it's a hysterical, gut-clenching reaction or faint forced giggle, Dad thrives off an audience.

Encourage him to save his best "dad joke material" for a night and take him out to a comedy club.

You might have to deal with him using the same jokes on you for the next couple of weeks. But hey, that's a sacrifice worth making when he gets to slap his knee for a chance.

The Workaholic

He's the provider. He takes pride in working to support the family. He might be at the office more than at home, but don't think he doesn't wish he could have more time with you all.

Show your dad appreciation for everything he's done by getting a gift he can use at work. Buy a new briefcase or travel case for the "corporate dad." Even a lunch pack cooler complete with a thermos would be great while he's on the construction site.

Spending a lot of money isn't always the only way to say "I love you." Sneak a scrapbook in his suitcase and surprise him with new pictures of the family for the dad who's always traveling.

These are just a few ideas to get your creative juices flowing, so don't wait any longer! Go out and grab your Father's Day gifts to make this one to remember.

Happy Father's Day!
