Father’s Day Gift Guide: Best Gifts for 2016

father's day gift guide 2016 best gifts for dad

Today I’ve got some amazing gifts for fathers day. If you’re unsure of the quality of the gift you want to get your partner or dad then you can look at a review site like ReviewLoft for more detailed info on the product. I’m already late, so let’s jump right into this one, shall we?

Father’s Day Gift Guide: Best Gifts for 2016

Sphero Star Wars BB-8 Droid. Are you kidding me? Do you even need me to explain this any further? I’m not even a Star Wars nut and I WANT ONE. Sphero Star Wars BB-8 Droid

Every Great Father Star Wars T-Shirt. If I were giving the Sphero gift (above), I would make him open this one first. Because I like themes. (Just sayin’.) Every Great Father Star Wars T-Shirt

Pressurized Growler for Craft Beer. Greg is so into beer, and he looooooves this item. This one is for the serious beer guys. Pressurized Growler for Craft Beer

The DogFather T-Shirt. Because Dog Daddies are Daddies, too. The DogFather T-Shirt

Smart Lock HomeKit Enabler. Enablers are usually not a good thing. But this Smart Lock HomeKit Enabler? It’s a great thing. You install the device on the inside of your door and you can lock and unlock your door with your smartphone, send “virtual keys” to dog-walkers, guests or whomever you choose, know who enters/exits at all times, and more. Smart Lock HomeKit Enabler

CURB Home Energy Monitoring System. If he liked that last gift, he’ll love this next level gift idea. The CURB Home Energy Monitoring System monitors way more than your front door; CURB monitors everything going on inside your home and solar system. CURB shows how much is being generated, in real-time and for a fraction of the cost of traditional solar monitoring systems. It gives you endless ways to configure your controls and optimize efficiency. And as Greg always says, “Don’t you want to be more efficient?!” CURB Home Energy Monitoring System

Lab Rules Coasters. Good, cheeky reminders for the smarty pants Dad in your life. Lab Rules Coasters

Beer Periodic Table of Elements Coaster Set. Since we’re on the topic of coasters, this Beer Periodic Table of Elements coaster set will definitely be a welcome gift to display on the table (and remind you both of Breaking Bad, which is always a good thing). Beer Periodic Table of Elements Coaster Set

“Spoil Dad” Gift Tokens for Family Activities. I love this thoughtful little gift you can have your kids give to Dad; each box includes 30 ways to spoil dad and let him know how much he means to you. Choose a token from the box and surprise dad with the kind gesture! Each box is made from recycled kraft, measures 3.5 by 3.5 inches and comes with 30 solid wood tokens. Spoil Dad Tokens for Family Activities

Dad: My First Reel Love Fishing Lure. This one is so beautiful, and makes a great gift if you’re a bride looking for something sentimental to give to your dad. This lets him know that no matter what, he’s always in your heart. I’m not crying, YOU ARE. Dad: My First Reel Love Fishing Lure If you dad likes fishing, maybe take a look at Active Fisherman to read the latest reviews and get some tips on what to buy him!

And don’t forget this if he’s a Grandpa now:

The Best Dads Get Promoted to Grandpa Keyring

Sugru Moldable Glue. A very handy item for the McGuyver dad in your world that allows you to repair things, or just make them easier to use. Watch the video for this one (you can find it via the link) – so many uses for this stuff! Sugru Moldable Glue

Black Label Electric Folding Scooter. I wish I found this sooner because I would have featured it on the Mother’s Day Gift Guide too, but it’s not too late to get one for yourself while you gift one to the Dad in your world. With an easy ride, 20 mile range and a top speed of 15mph, incredibly lightweight (35 lbs) and durable and a patented folding design, he’ll be zipping around town in no time. It even charges your cell phone or tablet! Bonus points that it’s 100% built in America. Black Label Electric Folding Scooter

Prynt Instant Photo Case for iPhone. Another one I wish I found sooner for the Mother’s Day Gift Guide! This case allows you to print photos directly from your phone. The photos are adhesive so you can use them as stickers, and each photo is saved as a video through the app. (Don’t worry, the fact that this gift is actually for you is a secret that is safe with me.) Print Instant Photo Case for iPhone

I Love You in Many Languages Photo Frame. While we are on the topic of photos, this “I Love You in Many Languages” photo frame is perfect for the traveling dad. You can get it in 8×10 or 4×6. Simply add the photo and you have an instant personalized gift for the multi-lingual man in your life. I Love You In Many Languages Photo Frame

Game Golf Digital Shot Tracking System. This tracker will up the game of any golfer on your Father’s Day gift list: it allows him to know his distances, see how far he really hits each club and “never under-club again” (whatever that means). It will also allow him to see his stats, fairway accuracy, GIR, putts per hole and many more things I do not understand as a non-golfer but know my husband would appreciate. Game Golf Digital Shot Tracking System

Superhero Daddy T-Shirt. Penelope is currently obsessed with superheroes and because of this I may just get this T-shirt for Greg. Because it also is a great reminder that he is a superhero dad. BOOM. Superhero Daddy T-Shirt

PapaSaur T-Shirt. Because this one just makes me happy, and I bet it will make the PapaSaurus in your world happy, too. PapaSaur T-Shirt


Pavlok “Habit Breaker” Wristband. Wait – is this thing for real? It has to be, because it’s up for sale on Amazon. It’s a wristband designed to break bad habits by doling out an electric shock each time you partake in said habit (and it’s obviously modeled after the “Pavlov’s Dogs” experiment). I’m laughing so hard I’m having a hard time typing. I don’t know what else to say when you give this gift. “No no, honey, really, I got this for you to help you break that bad habit you’ve been talking about, and not at all to know I’m masking the ability to administer electric shocks to you with a Father’s Day Gift!” Purchase at your own risk! Pavlok Habit Breaker Wristband

SpaFinder Wellness 365 Gift Card. Give him the gift of relaxation this year because you know he won’t do it on his own. And he’s earned it. The Spafinder Wellness 365 card is accepted at more spa and wellness locations worldwide than any other gift card, and it gets 5 star reviews on Amazon. SpaFinder Wellness 365 Gift Card

Cocktail Man Cave Vintage Dictionary Art. Give him something vintage, sophisticated, and cool to look at for the walls of his man cave. Cocktail Man Cave Vintage Dictionary Art

Hometown Skyline Upcycled Vintage Wall Art. If cocktails aren’t his thing, let him display his hometown pride with these up cycled nods to his favorite city. Hometown Skyline Upcycled Vintage Wall Art

Alphabet Photo – DAD. I love this one for two reasons: 1) the fantastic sentiment quoted on it, and 2) because of the awesome decor. I’ve always loved these Alphabet letters and this is one of the best ways I’ve seen it done. Alphabet Photo for DAD

Kings of Vinyl City Skyline Record Clock. This has so many cool features, all wrapped up in one gift. Check out the link for more cities: Kings of Vinyl City Skyline Record Clock

Howlite “Healing” Cufflinks. Not only are these fancy pants cufflinks a great accessory for your dapper man to don, but there’s a pretty cool meaning behind the Howlite crystals: “Howlite has an extremely calming energy and can be used to relieve anxiety, tension and intense emotions. It is said to be able to calm the mind, reducing fretful thoughts and helping you to relax in preparation for sleep or meditation. Howlite healing crystals help open and balance the Crown Chakra.” Perfect for those nerve-racking events, meetings, speaking engagements, and more. Howlite Healing Cufflinks

Oral-B Pro 700 Smart Series Electric Toothbrushes. This smarty pants toothbrush gives real-time feedback with the Oral-B app and focuses brushing on your most important areas, tracks habits over time, motivates with helpful oral care tips, and senses when you brush too hard. It’s rechargeable with 6 modes: Daily Clean, Gum Care, Sensitive, Whitening, Deep Clean, and Tongue Cleaner. Oral-B Pro 700 Smart Series Electric Toothbrushes

Tommy Hilfiger’s Two-Tone Stainless Steel Watch with Leather Band. Watches for Father’s Day is a token gift, and I had Greg give his stamp of approval on this one. It’s classy, and has tons of character. Tommy Hiliger’s Two-Tone Stainless Steel Watch with Leather Band
