I Adore What I Love Blog // AN EPIC FATHER'S DAY GIFT GUIDE // #iadorewhatilove

Can you believe Father’s Day is coming up on Sunday, June 19th!! That means if you haven’t already thought about what to get those special fathers, baby daddies, grandfathers, etc. in your life, you have approximately a week and a half left to do so! Kinda soon! We need to get on this people! 

Lucky for you, for the past few months I have been compiling a list of presents to get for alllllll kinds of dads. Seriously! All kinds! I’ve got gifts for the trendy dads, the techy dads, the new dads, the athletic dads, the burly dads, the casual dads, the business dads andddd the bartending dads... see, I wasn’t making that statement up! Altogether, I found 24 {!!!!!} EPIC gifts that ANY dad will love and appreciate! Take a look! I Adore What I Love Blog // AN EPIC FATHER'S DAY GIFT GUIDE // The Trendy Dad // #iadorewhatilove

Trendy dads need to look their best no matter what the situation and right now, Birkenstocks are all the rage. These ones are waterproof so he can be as cool in the pool as he is out of it // This ‘Hey Handsome’ shaving/dopp kit bag will remind the father in your life just how much you love him… and his adorable face // What’s trendier than ditching your iPhone camera for a beautiful Canon?!?! NADA.

Ahhh to be a tech nerd!! Photos can be printed from any device with bluetooth capabilities, in 30 seconds or less. Um, AMAZING // Every guy needs the latest AppleTV, which gives him access to tons of apps and countless hours of television watching // If the dad in your life is a techy, he’s sure to already have an apple watch {because obviously!} but something he probably doesn’t have but absolutely needs yesterday? The Belkin Apple Watch Doc. YES!

I Adore What I Love Blog // AN EPIC FATHER'S DAY GIFT GUIDE // The New Dad // #iadorewhatilove

A book about surviving pregnancy, childbirth and the baby’s first year written especially for all the new dads out there? Sign yo’ baby daddy up! // Every new dada wants to display his new role proudly and a subtle way to do that is by putting it on his cell phone case. DUH // On the contrary, a slightly more forthright way to do it would be to buy him a shirt which allows him to show off his new “coolest dad ever” title. LOVE this tee above!  

I Adore What I Love Blog // AN EPIC FATHER'S DAY GIFT GUIDE // The Athletic Dad // #iadorewhatilove

A foam roller is the gift that any athletic dad will appreciate on the days he’s realllllly hurting // These wireless powerbeats make for the PERFECT headphones while working out. No question about it // Where is your fit father supposed to put his keys, money, and other miscellaneous items he wants to bring with him on his run? In this Nike Waist Pack, of course! 

I Adore What I Love Blog // AN EPIC FATHER'S DAY GIFT GUIDE // The Burly Dad // #iadorewhatilove

These gifts are for the man’s man who you know and love! This personalized barbeque tools set makes sure he has EVERYTHING he needs to grill the best steak {or chicken, fish, and/or veggies} ever // For as little as $12.99 a month, you can have brew experts hand pick your dad craft beers he’s sure to enjoy // A miniature portable charcoal grill that looks like a baseball… say no more!

I Adore What I Love Blog // AN EPIC FATHER'S DAY GIFT GUIDE // The Casual Dad // #iadorewhatilove

All non-formal fathers NEED a pair of the Adidas Stan Smith’s in their life // Fun socks are never a bad idea // A simple hat will take your dad’s look from casual to casual-cool in seconds. The one featured above comes in TEN different colors! 

I Adore What I Love Blog // AN EPIC FATHER'S DAY GIFT GUIDE // The Business Dad // #iadorewhatilove

Tumi knows what’s good and this wallet is no exception… it’s slim, durable, and modern // Even though this cologne says “sport” on it, that doesn’t mean you can’t wear it in the office. Just ask my hubby who rocks it daily // These brass tie bars are simple, sleek, and really chic!!

I Adore What I Love Blog // AN EPIC FATHER'S DAY GIFT GUIDE // The Drinking Dad // #iadorewhatilove

Moscow mule copper mugs are a MUST in any dad’s bar collection // DIY sphere cubes are a thing that I’m sure your bartending dad wants to get in on ASAP // Even if your father doesn’t consider himself to be a professional mixologist, he’s sure to go wild for this homemade gin kit! GIFT SUCCESS.

    Wow, Dana, you’ve put together such an amazing guide! You’ve seriously got every dad covered here! I think I’ll definitely have to get my hubby a pair of these Birkenstocks, I love that they’re waterproof! He needs another pair, it’s time to part ways with the ones that are seriously falling a part! What’s up with guys holding on to everything that has holes and are worn out?! Haha! Thanks so much for sharing, beautiful, and I hope you’re having a great week so far!



    • Dana Ivy June 9, 2016 at 9:05 pm

      Why thank you friend! So happy it was helpful to you!! Loveeee those birks! Thinking of getting them for my husband too… because like your man, his current waterproof pair are totally falling apart! Guys are so funny! They think they need to wear everything they own until it’s literally unwearable! Crazy!! That’s the opposite of us girls! Xox

  • Emily June 9, 2016 at 4:48 pm

    This was super cute! I like that you labeled all of them in to the different types of dads. Loving all these products too. Dads are always so hard to shop for. Probably because we think way too much in to it haha.


    • Dana Ivy June 9, 2016 at 9:02 pm

      Thanks Emily! You’re so sweet! And toooootally agree! Men in general are the worst to shop for! It probably is us overthinking!! Hahah! Glad you found my blog and hope you’ll be back to read more!!
