The great thing about planning your Father’s Day gifts ahead, is that you have a lot more options. Like some really incredible custom gifts.
In our world, customization doesn’t mean a mug with DAD on it. If you want something really cool, just the way you (or the dads in your life) like it, we’ve tracked down a few neat options that you still have time to order in time for Father’s Day.
The custom dress shirts from Blank Label (at top) start around $60 and the styling is lovely. You get a say not just in the length, fit, and fabric, but whether you want a pocket, the type of collar, and the placket style. You can add a monogram too if Daddy is preppy.
For the dad who has everything, we adore the personalized sodas from Jones. It’s so easy to upload your own photo of Grandpa holding his prize fish, or Daddy and the kids then have it made into a custom label on a six-pack of his favorite natural soda flavor. ($16.99+ at My Jones)
With Flip cams going away (sniff, sob) this could be your last chance to grab Dad or Grandpa that easy-use video cam that looks just how he likes it.You can upload your own photo, or choose from ready-made Father’s Day Flip designs including the standard grill/golf/fishing themes. Personally, we love the tweed phone shown here.
We recommended the personalized ice creams from eCreamery for Mother’s Day, but if the men in your family are like the ones in ours, it will be a big hit for Father’s Day too. Ready-made Father’s Day flavors include “World’s Coolest Dad,” but you can make your own if you’ve got a flavor name in mind. (Save 10% with code DAD through 6/20)
Not every dad is a coffee guy. For those tea-drinkers, we’re in love with this #1 dad mug, which just may be the best #1 dad mug of all the mugs anywhere–but you can customize it with any short message you’d like. Also add the custom teaspoon plate for a really special gift ($50, $34 from Bailey Doesn’t Bark)
For the guy who can’t put down his iPhone or Blackberry–if you can’t beat him, join him. On the case. Create a custom iPhone or Blackberry case from case-mate with your favorite family photo, sports logo, you name it. Another option: The custom phone cases from This is Uncommon. (all around $35)
The custom keepsake bowl from Lisa Leonard is the perfect place for a dad to toss his watch or change at the end of the day. Inscribe it with Happy Father’s Day, an I love you from the kids, or a funny saying from the baby. ($44)

I like the customize your shirt “Gordon Gekko” shirt for my husband 🙂
I like the blue boxer and would be thrilled to give it to my husband (even though he already has a closet full of blue shirts!). It would go nicely with the Yankee Stadium cufflinks I’ve already ordered for him from StadiumCuffs.com, purchased with a Groupon for >50% off.
Shirt would be going to DH. I am loving the Atlantic with Blue Boxer.
I would pick the Persian for my husband. The springy colors are great!!!

Campsite with Novel Road!

Ooh I would love to win this for the hubs. He looks good in black button-downs, so I would pick the Dark Out with the Dark Knight
I like the Ignatius with Outback Sun. My husband deserves it because I always get the best Mother’s Day gifts from him!

Dark Out with Dark Knight for my hubby.
Love the “New Guy” shirt.
I like Charting with Watch The Gap – I think my husband would too – who I’d get it for! 🙂

I love the Novel Road with Roasted Chestnut shirt, but I would want to let my husband make his own. That seems like the most fun!

This is the perfect gift for my tall, thin, broad shouldered, impossible to fit husband. Slim fit Outback Sun with French cuffs and one pocket.
I like the Popular shirt, for my DH, who is STILL holding on to the Blank Label gift cert I bought him after seeing it on CMP….”I can’t measure myself!” Oy.
Looks like Blue Boxer is the winner – can’t beat a classic! Would make my wonderful DH look as awesome as he is!
I have to add my vote for blue boxer – can’t beat a classic! Would make my wonderful DH look as awesome on the outside as he is on the inside!
I like Dark Knight with Petey. I’d give it to my husband.
My guy is super fussy, so custom shirt? I’m in. I’d pick the Watch the Gap fabric (I can see why it’s a best seller) with french cuffs for the cuff links from last Father’s Day. Spread collar, covered placket, no pocket, classic buttons–perfection.
I would love to surprise my wonderful husband with the “Preppy Poplin with The Color Purple” shirt!!
I would go for the Peach casual shirt for the husband. His closet is a sea of blues, so it would be nice to mix it up!
My husband is an Oxford kind of guy, so dark Out with Dark Night is my favorite.

Awesome! Gordon Gekko with the button down collar and single button cuff is our man to a T! And this is for my husband, dad to our 3 boys 2 and under 🙂
Preppy poplin with the color purple — for my husband who wears mostly blue to work, and doesn’t like the pastel colors. This looks like a nice alternative.

Definitely Ignatius with Outback Sun. It’d be for my husband – all of his shirts are blue, but I’d enjoy the pop of yellow hidden on this one.
Love the Pretty Poplin with the Color Purple! My husband looks awesome in purple and loves to wear it, too. It’s perfect because it’s my favorite color, too! He should definitely win for being such an amazing dad to our two year old son. He’s managing to watch him and get his Ph.D. at the same time!!
Check Mate for my rock star, hubby.
my husband would love a shirt in All the Blues!
It’s a tough call but the Charting with Watch The Gap shirt looks like something the daddy to my three girls would love!
