Believe it or not, Father’s Day is fast approaching and it will be here before you know it on Sunday, June 21st. Finding a gift for Dad can be a bit of a challenge and we decided to take a look at some unique gifts that improve on the time-tested box of golf balls. After all, you want to find an original way to honor your dad and all that he’s done.
Many of us are continuing to practice social distancing and that means that not everyone will get to spend the holiday with their dads. Ordering a gift and having it delivered might be the safest and more effective way to give gifts right now. But, we encourage you to do so early because shipping is not as fast as it once was and orders that might have taken a couple of days might take a week or more to arrive. Here are 7 fantastic Father’s Day gifts to celebrate your dad and let him know you care.
7. For the Grill Dad – Coleman 54-Quart Cooler
The Coleman 54-Quart Cooler ($99.78 at Amazon) is the perfect gift for dads who enjoy a stocked, cold cooler while grilling, tailgating, or camping. It will keep ice frozen for up to four days! This cooler is also steel-belted which means that it is built to last and you can expect dad to use for years to come.
6. For the Hip Dad – Audio Technica Turntable
The Audio-Technica AT-LP120BK-USB Direct-Drive Professional Turntable ($299 at Amazon) is built for a pro but can be used to enjoy records at home. The turntable can be connected to USB or analog. It has all the bells and whistles without being overly complicated or difficult to use.
5. For the Playful Dad – Nintendo Switch Lite
The Nintendo Switch Lite with 5.5″ Touchscreen LCD Display ($309 at Amazon) will allow your dad to fulfill his Animal Crossing destiny. There are hundreds of games for him to play including classics like Mario Bros. and Tetris as well as newer hits like The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Minecraft.
4. For the Sleepy Dad- Newdora Hammock
The Newdora Camping Hammock ($25.99 at Amazon) is a lightweight hammock that your nap-craving dad can take anywhere. Perfect for camping but would also definitely be welcome in the backyard, this hammock is durable and comfortable. If you give this to dad on Father’s Day morning, he might be snoozing in it after lunch.
3. For the Searing Dad – Lodge Cast Iron Skillet
The Lodge 15″ Preseasoned Cast Iron Skillet ($55.22 at Amazon) is one heavy-duty skillet that will get the job done. Sauting, searing, baking, frying, you name it and this skillet will do it. Lodge is an excellent brand with a great reputation. Other skillets can cost twice as much, but the quality and affordability make this skillet a winner.

The Colonel Popper Healthy Microwave Popcorn Maker ($15.97 at Amazon) is a collapsable silicone bowl that’s a much healthier option than the microwavable popcorn bags. It’s easy to use and can be tossed in the dishwasher after dad’s enjoyed his snack. The name Colonel Popper is already a bad dad joke, so you know he’ll love it.
1. For the Eco Dad – Rocketbook Fusion Smart Reusable Notebook
The Rocketbook Fusion Smart Reusable Notebook ($35 at Amazon) is the perfect gift for a dad who loves to doodle, take notes, make extensive lists, or simply write.
