June is a special month in our household as we celebrate both my birthday and Father’s Day. Our summer break is on the horizon, and I’m looking forward to spending more time outside. With that in mind, these Father’s Day gift ideas are in the categories of “something to wear,” “something for self-care,” and “something to get outside”. Whether you’re shopping for Father’s Day, birthdays, holidays, or any other occasion, this list is one to return to when you need gift-giving inspiration for men.

Father’s Day Gift Ideas

Something To Wear

When it comes to Father’s Day gift ideas, clothing and shoes make for thoughtful and practical presents. These items are sure to enhance his wardrobe!

Moisture-Wicking Shirt

I like this shirt because it has a soft, breathable fabric that keeps me cool even in the summer. It looks like a “dress shirt” but feels like “athleisure”. It is stretchy, lightweight, and stays wrinkle free! I like the subtle “blue mini crown check” pattern. It has a tapered fit in the waist, so I ordered one size up from my normal size and it fits great!

Compression Half Tight

This summer I’m training for my first triathlon, and this compression half tight is the best pair of running shorts I’ve ever worn. Made from a moisture-wicking fabric, they feature two sweat-proof pockets (great for phone, keys, or headphones), ensuring everything stays dry. They also have a modesty layer, shirt loop on the back, and don’t ride up as I run. These shorts are absolutely perfect for long-distance running. I ordered these one size up also, and they fit great.

Lightweight Pants

These pants are lightweight, and made from a soft, stretchable performance fabric. They are also super comfortable, even for my two mile walking commute to work. The pants feature an inner band to help keep a tucked shirt securely in place. I’d never seen that pants feature before! They are smartly designed, and available in black, khaki, blue, or slate gray. Fit is true to size.

Henley Tee

This shirt is made from a soft material, providing a comfortable alternative to a standard tee. It looks nice with both pants and shorts, making it a versatile addition to any wardrobe. It is available in a variety of colors with both short-sleeve and long-sleeve options, so you can wear them all year! It’s a relaxed yet stylish look.

Waterproof Sneakers

These are the BEST shoes for walking outside in all weather. They are 100% waterproof! I have the Men’s Weekend Sneakers in Oak Brown and the Men’s Boardwalk in Coastal Blue. They are also great for travel because they are lightweight, comfortable for walking, and if rain pops up you’ll be prepared. They’ll keep your feet dry on rainy days, so you can say goodbye to wet socks!

Something For Self-Care

Choosing an item that helps dad reflect, relax, or refresh is a great way to pamper him. These items will help to elevate his daily routine and promote his well-being!

Travel Journal

This travel journal is a great place to record vacation memories. You can use it to prepare and plan for trips, and also reflect on and journal about your experiences. It has just enough structure to get you writing, with simple prompts and plenty of space to record your thoughts. This would be fun to look back on over the years!

Hydrogel Face Mask

With Hyaluronic acid, Vitamins B, C, E, and Peptides, these hydrogel face sheet masks are a pampering facial gift for men. A cool feature is the masks are just shaped for the top half of your face, so they are beard-friendly too! Pair this with the Daily 3-Step Skincare Set (face wash, toner, moisturizer) or the Advanced Age Defense 3-Step Skincare Set (face serum, eye cream, face cream) for a full men’s skincare routine gift!

Unscented Lip Balm

This unscented lip balm provides a lightweight layer of lip hydration. It soothes and nourishes chapped lips, which is important in the summer, when they tend to get dry. It glides on smoothly, but doesn’t make lips look too glossy. I like the unscented version, but there is also chai spice, basil rosemary, earl grey, clove, mint, and vanilla.

Cold Brew Coffee Maker

I love iced coffee in the summer, and we have one of these cold brew coffee makers at our cottage and another at our apartment. It has a built-in reusable filter, and you can simply rinse the filter after each brew. These are our favorite coffee grounds to make cold brew, and this is the milk frother we use to make speciality drinks.

Book Light

I love reading! These little book lights can clip directly onto your book so that you can read in the evenings. The lights are great for travel, and are rechargeable so they don’t need batteries.

Something to Get Outside

Outdoor gear and sports equipment are great Father’s Day gift ideas. These items will help to encourage outdoor adventures and a healthy, active lifestyle!

Waterproof Pouch

I love riding our paddle board in the summer, and I have this waterproof phone pouch to keep my phone dry. I’m pretty sturdy on a board, but you never know! This pouch features a 7.5” bag with locking clips, which fits most phones. It also has a pocket attached to store keys, credit cards, and more. I love that things are kept secure and dry, providing peace of mind on the water.

Pickleball Paddles

This pickleball set contains two carbon fiber paddles and four balls. Emily, the girls, and I recently learned how to play pickleball, and have found it to be a great way to spend quality time together. Whether you are a beginner or expert, this set makes an amazing gift.

Pickleball Bag

If you’re going to play pickleball, you need a bag to keep everything organized! This pickleball bag has a large main compartment to store your paddles and balls, and outer pockets for a phone, keys, and water bottle. It also features a padded back panel and adjustable strap to provide comfort and a customized fit for extended wear.

Toddler Carrier

This toddler carrier is much easier to pack than a stroller, and is a great way for dads to easily carry kids while running errands, at the park, or out on adventures. It can be worn on the front or back, and fits kids up to 60 pounds. Our 4-year-old daughter will still take naps in this when we’re on the go! Use code DAD20 at checkout to save 20% off 6/10/24 – 6/17/24. (also available on Amazon)

The Best Umbrella

This is the best umbrella we have found to use on windy, rainy days without flipping inside out! It is lightweight, compact, and easy to open. It’s designed with a double canopy that lets air pass through without letting water in! It is a practical gift that dad will use and comes in lots of colors.

I hope this list inspires you to think about Father’s Day gift ideas for the dads in your life, or any other gift giving occasion for men. Choosing “something to wear,” “something for self-care,” and “something to get outside” can be a great way to choose what items to give.

About me

Hi, my name is Tyler Moore. My wife and I live with our three young daughters in a 700- square-foot apartment in New York City. I began my tidying journey when an early-30’s crisis invited me to reflect upon, challenge, and change my patterns of daily living. I quit my job as a school administrator, returned to teaching, and started Tidy Dad to help others tidy, simplify, and find joy in their lives. I firmly believe the tidying process can transform your life. I’d love for you to join me in exploring ways that tidying can make room for what’s important in life.
