2017 Father’s Day Gift Guide

Hey hey! How are ya? How was the weekend? I hope you had a great one! I’ll be back soon with a recap from the weekend, but in the meantime, I thought we could talk about Father’s Day.

I can’t believe it’s juuuuuust around the corner. I hope the Pilot knows how much he’s appreciated and celebrated all year, but it’s fun to have a special day just for him, as well as the other amazing guys in our family. It’s Kyle’s first Father’s Day with Everly here! <3

Fathers day gift guide

I thought I’d put together some Father’s Day gift ideas, especially if you’re shopping this week (like me!). If you have any great ideas for Father’s Day gifts, please shout them out in the comments!

Father’s Day Gifts

New Balance

For the fitness-loving guy:

Bose wireless headphones. These are seriously the best. We’ve each had a pair for about a year now, and they’re our favorites for workouts and travel.

lululemon shirts and shorts. The Pilot LOVES these polos and these shorts.

New sneakers

A class pass at a new studio or gym he’s been wanting to try. CrossFit, martial arts studios, yoga, and spin are all great options.

Awesome socks. Balegas and Bombas are the Pilot’s favorite.

A massage. This is always an awesome gift, especially since I feel like guys are less likely to book them for themselves.

FitBit Blaze watch. I really like the sporty look of this one, and it has all of the usual Fitbit functions.

Patagonia hoodie

Clothes and accessories:


Patagonia pullover.

Pajama pants.

Classic button-up.

Straight-fit jeans.

Low-tops that match everything.

Bama shirt

For the sports fanatic:

Tickets to a fall sporting event or game.

Athletic gear for his favorite sports teams!

Beers around the world.

Little grill

For the grill master and chef:

Omaha steaks. We’ll often gift these to the men in our family for Father’s Day and Christmas, and it’s always a huge hit. I love that you can pick which menu offerings to send, and there are always coupon codes online.

BBQ tools in a wood box. (On sale, too)

Stainless steel bar tools.

BBQ sauce gift set. These look amaaazing.

Wherever dual fuel grill. This is so fun for tailgating! 

The Dude Diet. 

Welcome to the club

Personalized, silly, snacky, and homemade gifts:

Monogrammed pint glasses.

“Welcome to the club.” <— perfect for new dads, or dads with a little one on the way

Keg mug.

Dark chocolate bourbon bears.

Snack attack bars.

Bottle breacher. We’ve given these to many of the men in our family, and they love them. 

Love this homemade card.

Father/son shirt set.

DAD photo in a frame. I’d love to do this again with Liv and P holding the letters! The outtakes will definitely be the best part.

So tell me friends: what are you doing to celebrate Father’s Day? Any great gift ideas you can share? Feel free to link away!

    That welcome to the club book is too cute! I am getting the hubs a little staycation in July, so hopefully a little something to look forward to.

    I’m horrible at buying things for my Dad. Christmas is always the worst!

    • Fitnessista on June 12, 2017 at 7:22 pm

      yes, christmas is tricky!

    No clue what to get my dad or FIL, but I got my husband a month’s worth of landscaping services via a local company. Hopefully it goes over well – he’s kind of picky about the lawn, but the extra time with the kiddo will make him happy!

    • Fitnessista on June 12, 2017 at 7:22 pm

      that is an AWESOME gift idea

    My husband has ordered me not to buy him anything for Father’s Day this year because we’re trying to pay off debt. Instead I’m going to take some pictures of the kids with signs and give that to him framed for when we’re living separately for the next few months with my relocation. And I’ll make him a giant, bloody steak 🙂

    • Fitnessista on June 12, 2017 at 7:22 pm

      that all sounds perfect <3
