If you think of your dad as a local superhero, there’s no better time than Father’s Day to let him know just how much you love and appreciate everything he’s done for you over the years. (Remember all those under-the-bed monsters he fearlessly shooed away in the middle of the night?) Sure, he may tell you he doesn’t “need a gift this year,” but that’s just Dad being, well, Dad. Just because he gave you the okay to skip the holiday shopping doesn’t mean you shouldn’t absolutely spoil him if you can.
So… what do you get the guy who wants nothing or already has everything? Not a tie, for starters. Instead, think about an item he’s been eyeing all year but wouldn’t get himself, a topic/hobby that fascinates him, or just a way to make his life easier (he’ll really appreciate that last one).
With so many people to shop for in June — your pops, your partner, or your pal who just so happens to be a dad — it can be easy to run out of ideas that are both thoughtful and actually useful. Lucky for you, this list of the 27 best Father’s Day gifts will make any dad feel extra special this year.
