Father’s Day Gifts for ALL the Daddies!

by Meagan Nordmann

Father’s Day is coming up (June 19), and most blogs will give you ten or so gift ideas that sound like this: A drill; a shaving kit; a six-pack of beer; bacon for breakfast.

But not all dads use drills and not all dads want to shave their beards. What does your dad love? (i.e. surfing, hunting, artwork, coding, gardening, building). What makes him extra special?

We’ve compiled 14 different Dad-Interests or types of dads, to help make it easier to come up with ideas for gifts, crafts, and cards. If you see a cute saying on a keychain, but don’t want to buy a keychain—use it for your homemade card! We’ve also got some great card ideas, craft ideas, and gift ideas you may want to consider making or buying.

If you need even more ideas, browse our “For Dad” Pinterest board with over 150 pins!
