As I have mentioned previously (in my posts about love languages), I show my love to those around me by giving gifts. Giving the perfect gift is something that I put a lot of time and thought into, and I am always looking for an excuse to do so. Father’s Day is one of those perfect times!

Whether you’re buying a gift for your husband, son, or son-in-law, you want to find that perfect something that shows you love and care for him and appreciate everything he does for his family. With that in mind, I did my due diligence and found these 14 gifts that are perfect for your husband and/or your grandchildren’s dad:

1. Babysitting

I mentioned this in my Mother’s Day gift roundup and believe it earns the #1 spot here, too, as your son (in-law) can always use a day or night out with his wife. No matter the occasion (heck, you don’t even need a special occasion to offer!), babysitting is an inexpensive and easy gift you can give your adult children. 

2. My Arcade Retro Machine Playable Mini Arcade

Talk about a blast from the past! This fun and unique mini arcade machine comes with 200 classic games, a la puzzles, racing, and sports. If your son is a product of the late 70s through the early 90s, he will love sharing this nostalgic gem with his kids. 

3. Hydro Flask Wide Mouth Bottle with Flex Cap

If you don’t have a Hydro Flask water bottle, you are missing out, as these metal marvels keep your drink ice cold for 24 hours (or hot for up to 12 hours) without sweating. 

4. MZOO Sleep Eye Mask, 3D Contoured Cup Sleeping Mask & Blindfold

Your son (in-law) works hard, so give him the gift of a great night’s sleep! This MZOO eye mask features skin-friendly memory foam with 100% light blocking and zero eye pressure, making for a thoughtful gift he can use for years.

5. AOZINTL Pickleball Paddles Set of 4, Graphite Face Pickleball Paddles with Honeycomb Core and Premium Comfort Grip

Do you want to make your son’s Father’s Day even better? Pair free babysitting with this pickleball set! (If you aren’t familiar with pickleball, it is a fast-paced, outdoor game with equal parts tennis, badminton, and ping-pong. Trust me: It’s fun, and you should get a set of paddles, too!) 

6. AncestryDNA: Genetic Ethnicity Test

AncestryDNA kits are one of my favorite things to give, as they provide the recipient a unique look into what makes them – well, them. AncestryDNA is easy to use, gives users an inside look at where they come from, and connects them with other relatives on the platform. 

7. LEGO Star Wars The Mandalorian Helmet

You’re never too old for Legos… especially when the said Lego set is designed specifically for teens and adults! (This is one of the more affordable models – some cool ones cost upwards of $450!)

8. 100 Hikes of a Lifetime: The World’s Ultimate Scenic Trails

Is your grandkids’ dad a fan of the great outdoors? If so, 100 Hikes of a Lifetime is the perfect gift, as this National Geographic book not only features a bucket list of hikes for him but is also just fun to peruse. 

9. Corkcicle Chillsner, Beer Chiller Stick for Bottle

Whether your son enjoys a bottle of Coke or a beer after a long day of work, these ingenious chiller sticks will make his beverage not only ice cold but even more refreshing! 

10. MEATER Plus: Wireless Smart Meat Thermometer

Every gourmand needs some fun cooking gadgets, and the MEATER Plus – a wire-free kitchen thermometer that syncs with your phone – is just that! Unlike old thermometers, the MEATER even walks you through each phase of the cooking process, ensuring a stellar result every time.

11. Vivere Double Cotton Hammock with Space Saving Steel Stand, Tropical

I can picture my son and grandbabies relaxing in this highly-rated hammock… can you? 

12. MacSports Collapsible Outdoor Utility Wagon with Folding Table and Drink Holders

If your grandkids play sports, this collapsable wagon is an absolute lifesaver, making transporting equipment, chairs, and even kids to and from the field one hundred times easier. (My family knows this from experience!)

13. RAEMAO X6 Massage Gun

Nothing is more relaxing than a massage, but going to a massage therapist isn’t always affordable or convenient. Enter the RAEMAO massage gun with its ten speeds, fifteen massage heads, and instant pain relief, a la an on-demand deep tissue massage. 

14. Echo Show 8

…because if both you and your son have an Echo Show, you can video chat with your grandbabies as often as you like! 😛


I hope you found something that your son/in-law or husband will enjoy this Father’s Day! I pray that he has a fantastic day and that you, my friend, have a beautiful week. As always, let’s talk again soon!
