Shopping for the right gift for anyone–even those you’ve known your whole lives–can be challenging. It doesn’t have to be sentimental or expensive, but it shouldn’t be generic or too cheap. It can be difficult to shop for certain people, such as a finicky aunt or someone who is very picky.
If you’re shopping for the latter this Father’s Day, just think about what makes them happy. Zero in on a type of gift. Are you a gadget-loving dad? Are you a aspiring chef or a gadget guy who loves electronic toys? Do-it-yourselfer, who likes to tinker in the garage.
Know what makes him tick, find a gift that works, then look for an upgraded version that’s better than ordinary. For chefs, a grill thermometer is great, but a smart, wireless thermometer that can be connected to your smartphone is even better. A home projector is perfect for multimedia-loving dads, but a portable high-def model is way better. While a pocketknife can be useful for DIYers and outdoor enthusiasts, a customized, made-justfor-you blade will make your dad’s day.
If you’re having trouble finding the right gift for dad this Father’s Day, we’ve got a few ideas for you. Here are 30 of the best Father’s Day gifts we recommend for any dad in 2022.
