Father’s Day Gift Ideas

. 3 min read

Father’s Day is less than a week away! Are you ready? I’m writing this post because I’m sitting here thinking about what to get my husband for Father’s Day.

As I write this, Seth just called from the grocery store (he took our daughter with him) and asked, “Do the potatoes have to be organic?” How much do we love getting calls like that? (The answer was no, by the way. I said, If they don’t have organic, just get whatever they have.)

Now is the time to let your sweetheart know how much you appreciate him. Life moves pretty fast, and we don’t always get a chance to show our gratitude. Don’t wait!

Dad and Diba in the American River

Here are some ideas for Father’s Day gifts your husband will love. (And so will your father, and your father-in-law.)

By the way, everything on this list is available on Amazon.  No need to get in the car and drive around and schlep to stores. Just add to cart and you’re done!

Fitbit Activity Tracker

Most guys love gadgets.  Seth bought me one of these
[easyazon-link asin=”B005PUONIK” locale=”us”]Fitbit Wireless Activity/Sleep Trackers[/easyazon-link] for Mother’s Day and you know what? I love it! You wear it on your wrist or ankle or in a pocket and it tracks how many steps you take each day, how many miles you walk, how many calories you burn, etc.

Many of us these days have sedentary office jobs and it’s tough to get enough exercise. This
[easyazon-link asin=”B005PUONIK” locale=”us”]Fitbit Wireless Activity/Sleep Tracker[/easyazon-link] really motivates you to get out there and get on the bike after breakfast, or take a walk after dinner.

Fitbit Aria Smart Scale

I bought this [easyazon-link asin=”B0077L8YFI” locale=”us”]Fitbit Aria Wi-fi Smart Scale[/easyazon-link] for Seth for his birthday — it should arrive any day now. It syncs with your Fitbit so you can track not only your weight but your BMI, fat percentage, etc. And then you can see your progress when you login to your Fitbit account online.

Keurig Single-Cup Coffee Brewer

[easyazon-link asin=”B000AQSMPO” locale=”us”]Keurig B60 Special Edition Brewing System[/easyazon-link] – We have one of these and we love it. It makes it so easy for my husband to make himself a cup of coffee.

If your husband likes coffee but doesn’t know how (or can’t be bothered) to make it, get him one of these machines. You will not regret it!v

Apple TV

We got an [easyazon-link asin=”B007I5JT4S” locale=”us”]Apple TV[/easyazon-link]  over a year ago and we love it. So much, in fact, that we bought one for my father-in-law last year. He loves it, too!

You can watch Netflix or movies and TV shows you buy on iTunes. You can also watch movies on YouTube and view photos that are on your hard drive.

Like all Apple products, the design is sleek and modern and the interface is extremely easy to use. If only all hardware were designed this well! (How I miss Steve Jobs. Yes, he was a dad, too.)

Bose Headphones

Does your husband need a little time to himself? Nothing wrong with that — when we’re busy with work, kids, and other activities, it feels so good just to reduce the noise and stress and take some time out for ourselves, whether it’s spending a half hour reading a book or listening to some music.

Give him the gift of quiet time with these [easyazon-link asin=”B003XU6H8I” locale=”us”]Bose IE2 Audio Headphones[/easyazon-link].

Victorinox Swiss Army Classic Pocket Knife

Does your husband have a [easyazon-link asin=”B00004YVB2″ locale=”us”]Victorinox Swiss Army Knife?[/easyazon-link]? If not, I bet he has always wanted one.

[easyazon-block align=”none” asin=”B00004YVB2″ locale=”us”]

Set of 6 Beer Glasses

Does your husband love beer? A lot of men do!

Check out this [easyazon-link asin=”B001D64IB2″ locale=”us”]Libbey Giant Pub 22-1/2-Ounce Pilsner Glasses, Set of 6[/easyazon-link].

Maybe get him this and some speciality bottles of microbrew. Let him know that you think he deserves a little downtime.
