Father’s Day is this weekend, so you’re in the homestretch for finding that perfect gift for Dad. If you’re trying to ditch the tie and socks, but striking out on finding the perfect Father’s Day gift, here’s our list of fun, unique gifts that Dad is sure to love.
We haven’t met a dad who doesn’t love cooking dinner over an open flame. If your dad’s menu skews more towards pizzas than steaks, an ALFA backyard oven is the ultimate Father’s Day gift. These wood-fired pizza ovens replicate the cooking experience of an authentic Neapolitan-style brick oven, but can easily be moved from one spot to another. And while quick, crispy pizzas are the ALFA’s forte, a variety of accessories make them equally adept at grilling up any food Dad’s heart desires.
As the saying goes, “You don’t stop playing when you get old; you get old when you stop playing.” Dad is never too old to stop playing with LEGOs, especially the advanced sets from the Technic line. Our current favorite is the LEGO Technic Bugatti Chiron. This 3599-piece set will keep Dad busy for hours, and maybe help fulfill his dream of owning a million-dollar supercar.
Dad doesn’t need to be a dart pro to enjoy throwing a few rounds. Our selection of dart boards includes a variety of sizes, in both electronic and traditional models. Perfect for competition with the guys or a way to wind down after work, they make a great addition to Dad’s den, office, or basement bar. With models starting at around thirty bucks, a dartboard is a great gift that won’t cost you a bunch, and accessories like additional professional darts make great follow-up gifts.
From pool sharks to novice players, a personal cue stick is a great way to for Dad to build consistency in his pool skills. A variety of models offer something for Dads of all skill levels, from casual games in the basement to professional competitions.
A growing nostalgia for 80s pop culture has made products like old-fashioned arcade games more popular than ever. And while we do carry a variety of full-sized arcade games and pinball machines, gifting one might be out of the budget. Arcade1Up’s Countercade games are a great gift alternative that won’t break the bank. These compact cabinet games evoke the spirit of their bigger brethren, and fit neatly on a countertop. Perfect for Dad’s man cave or office! Choose from four classic titles.
A nice timepiece is a classic Father’s Day gift. And while fine leather bands and complex Swiss movements will set many horologist’s hearts aflutter, if your Dad is an active one, there’s only one real choice when it comes to a watch: a Casio G-Shock. Renowned for their legendary ruggedness, these feature-packed watches have also carved out a niche with the streetwear crowd. Whether you’re shopping for a Cool Dad, a Construction Dad, or a Camping Dad—or a dad that’s a bit of all three—you’ll find a G-Shock model perfect for his active life.
