It’s that time of year when we’re reminded how difficult it is to shop for men.
Whether you’re celebrating your dad, husband, stepdad, grandpa, father-in-law, uncle, neighbor, or brother, I have created a versatile gift guide. These ideas address a variety of passions and functional needs for any man in your life.
I have found that quality is usually better than quantity. Although this list has gift ideas at several different price points, many are on the higher end. My best advice: get him ONE gift to love and appreciate frequently for years to come!
However, these ideas don’t have to break the budget! I often crowdfund a more expensive gift with my siblings or other family members. Or combine holidays, such as his birthday and Father’s Day.
If you’ve been procrastinating, all these links are on Amazon. Can’t beat that two day shipping!
Creative Gift Guide for Men
I feel like a lot of Father’s Day gift guides for men include the following: clothes, cologne, books, and grilling stuff.
You’ll find some of those items on this list, but I think the most creative gifts are the ones that are useful, practical, needed, or sentimental.
Ideally, a gift that’s all of those things is amazing! Here are a couple of ideas to help you think of a creative gift if you don’t find something on this list:
- Think of the person’s day or routine from start to finish. What do they do first thing in the morning, or right after work? Is there something in their routine they do before bed? Think of a gift that could compliment or enhance any specific ritual or task they do each day. For example, if the man in your life drinks coffee every morning, think of some accessories or new ingredients, cups, frothers, etc. that could enhance that task.
- Does this person have any specific hobbies? Sometimes if that’s the case, they may already have very specific brands or products they are looking at getting for those hobbies, and it’s best not to purchase anything they may not use. You can always ask if there’s something really specific they want, or a gift card or complimentary experience may be a good idea. My husband just started picking up his guitar again, so I just got him a couple fun things like a guitar stand (with 13,000+ positive reviews!) and a music stand kit to help support growing that hobby.
- New hobby? As adults, we often think of things we desire to start doing or learning, but never get around to. Is there a new hobby or skill this person might be interested in? Maybe a cooking class, music class, voice lesson, or an instructional class of some kind would be cool. A gift card to a specialty store could also be the push someone needs to start something new!
- Subscriptions or Lessons– Like I just mentioned above, something new that’s a regular occurrence could be a fun gift. Subscriptions for food or clothing are always a super fun gift.
- Experiences– I love gifting experiences like skydiving, escape rooms, go-karting, helicopter or airplane rides, etc. We’ve done all of those things and they’re such fun memories. I usually find something fun near me on Groupon. Something that’s also really fun is picking a new and/or fancy restaurant or type of cuisine you’ve never been to before, and gifting that.
- Gifting to Charity– Another way you can honor someone is by making a donation to the charity or cause of their choice.
- Something ALIVE!– whether that’s a plant, flower, or herb garden, something alive can bring beauty and freshness into any space. If you DO gift a pet, please do so responsibly to ensure that the animal doesn’t end up on the streets or a shelter in a couple days or weeks.
- Office Decor – If the man in your life works in an office away from home, think of some desk ornaments, decorations, or things that might help make work more enjoyable. I love these little mini desk games, photo albums, digital photo albums, framed photos, mugs, electric blankets (if it’s cold!), a fan (if it’s hot!), some desk exercise equipment, or something pretty that’ll look nice on a desk.
- What kind of guy is he? If your guy is outdoorsy and likes to hike, a Thermodrop clip on thermometer might be a fun gift. I like putting it on my jacket for when I go outside! Car guy? Golf guy? Book guy? Gamer guy? Think of things he loves or wants to love, and go with that!

The two independently controlled burners allow you to set different heat zones for cooking a variety of barbeque foods. Plus, it includes a built-in thermometer to monitor the grill temperature.
Speaking of grilling, if you don’t have a Thermapen One, you’re not doing cooking right! This is the absolute world standard in temperature, and their products are amazing.
