Gift ideas for the dad who has everything | Cool Mom Picks Father's Day Gifts 2014

You know the dad who has everything? The one who’s impossible to shop for? Yep, so do we. So even though we’ve now suggested dozens of Father’s Day gifts of all kinds, you might still be looking. And we feel for you. So here, we present some of our favorite gifts for the dad who seems to have everything. Some are splurgey, some are free, some just a little off the beaten-path. Hopefully there’s something here for the lucky paternal superstar in your life.  Besides your undying love and affection, of course. Which may in fact be all he needs.

Dove Men+Care

We’re happy to welcome our friends at Dove Men+Care who are in part sponsoring our gift guide, because they totally believe in taking care of dads, and celebrating those dads who take care of their families. Just like we do.

Plus, because we all adore the dads, granddads and stepdads in our lives so much, be sure to check out our massive Father’s Day giveaway below, valued at over $900, that we’ve put together from some of our very favorite Father’s Day gifts. Entering is easy. Good luck!

All our picks are determined solely by the editorial team; there has been no compensation in exchange for recommendations. Some products may include affiliate links.

 

 

Gifts for the dad who has everything: vintage style speedbag
This vintage style speedbag by fashion flash is so neat looking for an office, whether he’s in training, or just wants to feel like a tough guy.  ($89 on sale, Gilt.com. Use our invitation link if you’re not already a member.)

Gifts for the dad who has everything: Original vintage baseball artwork at Topps
The Topps site has so many cool ideas for sports fans, like this original vintage baseball artwork. Fear not non-Bostonians; there are options from nearly every team in the league. ($9.99-69.99, Topps)

 

Gifts for the dad who has everything: Handmade Pocket Knife by Son of a Sailor
If he’s an adventurer or just likes to be cool and say “I’ve got it…” when you go to open a package in the mail, take a look at the gorgeously crafted handmade Pocket Knife by Son of a Sailor. It comes in handy in all sorts of situations; just remember to take it out of your pocket when you go through airport security. ($34, Cool Mom Picks indie shop at Great.ly)


Gifts for the dad who has everything - custom coloring page from the kids

 

If you’re crafty, we have tons of ideas for homemade gift ideas for dads, and one of our favorite from last year is printing a custom coloring page of Dad made from a photo of him, then letting the kids go to town.  (Free with code on Crayola 64 crayons box, Crayola Color Studio ; photo via Andy Hinds)

Gifts for the dad who has everything: Artisan crafted hammock
The artisan crafted hammocks from Yellow Leaf are so hot right now, every day we check the site and another style is sold out. If this one is calling your name, grab it now. Throw in a great book while you’re at it, and a coupon for a few hours to himself. (This style $249, Yellow Leaf Hammocks; get a free tee with purchase with “DADSNORES” at checkout)

 

 

Gifts for the dad who has everything: Custom hand-painted Belle bike helmet
It’s awesome when you can get a dad something he’d really want but would never actually buy for himself. We think the custom hand-painted one-of-a-kind bike helmet from Belle Helmets fit the bill perfectly if he’s a cyclist. If not, it may just make him want to take it it up. ($150 by Belle Helmets, Hatch.co)

 

Gifts for the dad who has everything: Vinyl record from his favorite band
Whether he has a turntable or would just hang it proudly on a wall, look for a vinyl record from his favorite band. You’ll be amazed at how happy this makes a music lover. ($25+, red envelope, or visit a record store near you. Do they still have those?)

 

Gifts for the dad who has everything: Blue Claw Co. Fire Hampton Duffel at Zady
Every guy should have one great, well-made, logo-free duffel that he didn’t get for free at some conference or event. We love the Blue Claw Co. Fire Hampton Duffel which comes in a few colors, but this fire engine red is striking. ($145, Zady)

 

Gift ideas for the dad who has everything: Tickets to a show, concert, or sports event

Experience gifts are always a hit. Think tickets to a theater, concert, or sports event he’s been dying to see. They can be tickets for the whole family, two tickets for date night, or just a few for him and some buddies for a needed boys’ night out. ($ Varies)

 

Gifts for the dad who has everything: Handmade Stadium Blanket Tote
If you are going the splurgey route with some hard-to-come-by tickets to a great sporting event or concert, consider adding in this stunning (and manly) Handmade Stadium Blanket Tote which opens to a full-sized blanket. Indulgent? Totally. But for the right kind of guy, it’s awesome. ($395, Billy Reid)

 

 

Gifts for the dad who has everything: Modern superman watercolor
We recently fell in love with the modern superman watercolor giclee prints we discovered from Blule. If he’s more into Batman, The Flash, or even Han Solo, she offers those too. , ($69, Blule)

 

Gifts for the dad who has everything: Bond No. 9 Brooklyn Fragrance
Bond No.9 makes such cool,conceptual fragrances with New York City themes.We’re partial to the Bond No. 9 Brooklyn Fragrance which would look awesome on a hip dad’s nightstand–but don’t worry, it doesn’t smell like the Gowanus Canal. ($190/1.7oz, Nordstrom)

 

 

Gifts for the dad who has everything: Campfire popcorn popper
Whether for camping trips or just over the stove for movie night, we think dads will dig this vintage campfire popcorn popper. Even better, it’s on sale. ($79 on sale, West Elm Market)

 

 

Gifts for the dad who has everything: polaroid waterproof sports action camera
The Polaroid HD Waterproof Sports Action Camcorder is so fun. Lightweight, shockproof, and waterproof (of course), it’s awesome for any dad who’s into surfing, snowboarding, rafting or just being silly in the pool with the kids. (50% off at $54.99 for a limited time, Target)

 

Charity Gift Card from justgive.org for Father's Day

For the dad with a big heart, email or snail mail a Charity gift card from Just Give. You pick the dollar amount, he picks from 1.8 million charities operating worldwide. And there are quite a few Father’s Day designs that are as sweet as the gift idea. ($varies, Justgive.org)
