Father’s Day is coming up, and shopping for Dads can be hard. Gifts like ties, cufflinks or something for the grill are just so predictable, and they don’t really do a good job of communicating how much you value him! And let’s be honest: while moms are pretty epic, dads are rather amazing too.
Below, we’ve put together a list of 5 great gifts for Dads, listing only things we’d legit get for ours.
The Only Father’s Day Gift Guide You’ll Need
1. Pocket Squares for the Dapper Dad
Okay, we just got done making fun of ties for Father’s Day, but buying a pocket square + a tie is golden. Perfect for the dad with style, a pocket square can really elevate an outfit.
DBD Designs is a black-owned business, that offers high-quality neckties and bowties. We love the DBD Designs line, which offers sets starting at $30.
2. Hybrid Backpack for the Dad That Does It All
Briefcases can be stuffy, but the dad in your life still wants to look professional. The fabrics used in the Knack Pack ($175 – $195) make it a perfect fit for professional occasions while fitting in at the kid’s soccer games or while running weekend errands.
We especially love the expandable luggage compartment, which makes this hybrid backpack double as a carryon bag. Expand for travel (the large Knack Pack holds 3-4 outfits, easily), and compress when you don’t need it.

3. For the Dad with a LOT of Tech
Whether your dad uses a smartwatch or prefers to go old school, a “tech docking station,” also called a “valet” is perfect for storing and showcasing his tech and accessories before going to bed.
This docking station from Etsy is $50, and is handmade out of solid oak.
4. A Surprise Trip for the Dad Who Needs To Use Those Sky Miles
Booking a weekend (or week-long) trip is a great way to surprise your Dad or partner for Father’s Day. Give him a packing list, but refuse to tell him where you’re going. Wait until you’re in the airport to reveal your destination.
When booking accommodations, we love the offerings of Innclusive. The platform was designed to be inclusive (hence the name), helping to eliminate bias and discrimination travelers can face. (Note: The Crunch Mommy hasn’t tried Innclusive yet, but we want to!)
5. Matching Shirts for the Dad with a Little Buddy
This gift is perfect for the kiddos that want to be just like their dad. This “Big Dipper” t-shirt set (one for dad and one for their buddy) is $48 on etsy, reminds little ones to reach for the stars.
It’s also perfect for a Father’s Day photo opp, making memories that you’ll look back on with a smile.
