Figuring out gifts for Father's Day is even simpler now with these great ideas to help you along.

Thinking up new Father’s Day gift ideas can give you a headache. Just because dad is tough to shop for does not mean you have to get him another new tie or gift card though. Father’s Day gift ideas are found in the details of dad’s life, whether it is his obsession with planes, his interest in a hobby, or his love of his children.

Experience-Based Gifts

Giving dad the gift of a once-in-a-lifetime experience is something that he will remember and cherish forever. That experience could be one where he drives in a Nascar vehicle on a real racetrack, or where he gets to pilot a plane during an introductory flying lesson. Both of these things make excellent gifts for Father’s Day when you feel like dad already has everything that he really wants and needs. These gifts range from $100 to over $500, so they also qualify as great “group gifts” where multiple members of the family pitch in to provide dad with an amazing experience to add to his memory bank. If anyone in the family loves to scrapbook, they can even present dad with a masculine mini-scrapbook documenting his experience.

Presents for Dads that Show the Love

If you are shopping for a dad that is one who is involved in every single aspect of their child’s life, then you can create some wonderful personalized gifts for Father’s day that he will love. Look at photo websites where you can create personalized mouse pads or coffee mugs for dad with artwork created by the kids, or even pictures of him and the kids on them. These items are simple to create with the product interfaces on sites like Shutterfly, Flickr and PhotoBucket. Better yet, these gifts for daddy are affordable and you can find coupons by doing a web search for promo codes applicable to each site.

Hobby-Based Gifts for Daddy

If the dad on your shopping list is passionate about a hobby, it is simple to find gifts that work around it. If you think dad already has everything he could ever need for his hobby, do a bit of detective work by calling the store he usually goes to for his hobby supplies and quiz them on the latest and greatest items for his preferred activity. Even if they don’t have any new ideas for gifts for Father’s Day, you may realize he has never gotten the best-of-the-best, so you can splurge on him and show him you really do pay attention when he goes on and on about his favorite past time. 

No matter which option you go with, you are sure to have a personalized gift that the man in your your household will love. Just use what you know about him, pair it with a bit of intuition and some great starting points like these and you're sure to provide the gift of a lifetime.
