He’s always been there for you. So when your old man’s birthday rolls around, you want to get him something special that says how much you love him. Whether you’ve been getting him the same old type of gift every year or just want to one-up your siblings, it’s time to step up your gift-giving game with these top birthday gift ideas for dads.
Are you wondering what to get your dad for his birthday?
We’ve compiled a quick guide featuring some of the best ideas for a dad’s unique birthday gift:
What To Get Dad For Birthday Who Has Everything?
When you’re shopping for a present for the dad who has everything, it can be hard to think of unique gift ideas that haven’t already been done. The last thing you want is for your present to sit on a shelf collecting dust, or for your dad to take your gift back to the store.
One of the best cheat codes in this situation is to upgrade something he already has. For example, your dad may have a cooler, but does he have a top-of-the-line YETI cooler? Find something that you know your dad uses often and get him the latest and greatest version of it. You can’t go wrong with this gift giving hack, and at least you know your gift will get used.
Another option is to find him something fun and unique that goes along with a hobby or interest that he has. Dad life can get hard sometimes. Make sure you help your dad invest in himself with a gift that says you see him. If your dad loves to work out, get him a gift that will help him build that DADBOD just in time for summer. If he enjoys fishing, get him a new tackle box or a different kind of bait. No matter how much gear he already has, you can’t go wrong with a present that supports his most important pastime.
Personalized gifts are another great option to get for the dad in your life. Your dad may have a decanter set, but does he have one with his initials on it? In addition to the usual custom photo gifts, there are several other one-of-a-kind keepsakes you can purchase for your father that give off some serious dad vibes. A new trend is customized gifts with the recipient’s name and image. For example, did you know that you can create and order a personalized Funko Pop Figure? Or create a personalized adventure featuring dad and son for that comic book fanatic?
Another trend is presents that feature the day, month, or year that the recipient was born. For example, you can buy a box of retro candy from 1972 to celebrate dad’s 50th birthday this year or get dad a custom coffee table book full of newspaper headlines from the day he was born.
Experience gifts are also a hit for dads of any age. Check out a few different websites like Groupon, Yelp, and LivingSocial to find unique local experiences near you. You may find places you didn’t know existed. For example, axe-throwing is becoming a popular outing for families and small groups, along with escape rooms, rock-climbing gyms, and driving ranges like Topgolf.
