Father’s Day gifts can be a lot more exciting than a pair of slippers or a set of coffee mugs. This Father’s Day, why not put a little more thought into your Father’s Day gift and tailor your gift to suit your Dad’s needs? This year, you can not only show him how much you appreciate him, but you can also show him how well you know him.
Whether your Dad is a lover of the great outdoors, can’t stay away from the beach, is a stylish entrepreneur, a health nut, or relishes in his relaxation time at home – we’ve got a gift idea for you. We’ve compiled a list of gifts that cover just about every type of Dad. Below are some awesome Father’s Day gift ideas that are practical, thoughtful and unique:
1. California Cowboy’s “High Water” Shirt
This unique and stylish shirt is the long-awaited update to the traditional “Aloha” shirt that men seem to love. California Cowboy’s “High Water” shirt features custom-designed floral or tropical prints, water-absorbent terry-cloth lining, and cool features such as secret pockets and an integrated bottle opener.
The terry-cloth lining acts like a built-in towel for beach-lovers. It’s super soft on the skin and breathable, yet highly absorbent, making it great for drying off after a swim or absorbing hot summer day sweats.
The High Water shirt also has some really functional pockets such as a special side ‘bottle pocket’ that perfectly fits a bottle of beer, a concealed dry pocket for his phone, a secure sunglass-holder loop, an integrated bottle opener and a hidden interior pocket.
The vintage-inspired prints are mostly inspired by the Aloha shirts of the 70’s, and with all these unique features and pockets, it’s basically a wearable happy hour kit. California Cowboy is known for its quality materials and clever design concepts. Their designs are inspired by men’s daily experiences, which is probably why they’re so functional.
2. Walton Wood Farm’s “Gentleman’s Beard Bundle” Gift Set
Looking for a gift for a Dad who’s loyal to his beard? It’s true that bearded men love taking good care of their facial hair, but they shouldn’t use just any product on their faces. Walton Wood Farm is committed to making high-quality products made with sustainable ingredients. Their products are all vegan and cruelty-free, made with natural ingredients using no harmful chemicals.
A gift set perfect for Father’s Day is Walton Wood Farm’s ‘Gentleman’s Beard Bundle’ kit.

3. Lululemon “License To Train” Shorts
If your Dad is always keen to exercise and likes to stay fit, he might be in need of some quality athletic clothing. Make sure the physically-active Dad has what he needs for summer, and get him a pair of Lululemon’s famous “License To Train” shorts. Lululemon is one of the world’s top brands of activewear because of their high-quality fabrics, soft blends, functionality, breathable technology, and stylish designs.
Lululemon has several options to choose from in their men’s collection for Father’s Day, but we love the “License To Train” shorts. Why? Because of their lightweight, sweat-wicking and quick-drying fabric that maximizes comfort, and the secured zippered pockets to store airpods, phone, cards and keys. With a pair of these shorts on hand, your Dad won’t have to sacrifice style for function.
4. Holzkern Watches Made From Wood and Stone
When it comes to men’s style, a watch is a must-have staple for any Dad’s wardrobe. Perhaps your Dad is due for an upgrade in the watch department, making a Halzkern watch the perfect Father’s Day gift.
Halzkern combines handcrafted wood and stones to create one-of-a-kind men’s watches that truly stand out from the crowd. Check out the limited edition Wassily watch, for example. It’s made from leadwood and marble.
Wassily Kandinsky (a Russian abstract painter) was inspired by the power of color and form. This particular Wassily model is strictly limited to only 300 pieces in total – when it’s sold out it will never be available again. This makes your Dad’s personal piece of nature that much more special! Made with a genuine red marble dial, leadwood, and gray stainless steel – it’s a standout watch and a very unique Father’s Day gift to be remembered. Aside from the Wassily, there are several other Halzkern men’s watches to choose from, with different color marble, different stones, and various types of wood.
5. Tommy John’s Go Anywhere® Everyday Tech Pant
If your Dad is a hard-working businessman who likes to look good and be comfortable, he’ll love the premium clothing brand Tommy John. Their Go Anywhere® Everyday Tech Pant is made with an innovative 4-way stretch material for Dad’s ultimate comfort.
These pants are complete with a modern, stylish fit for the 2021 businessman who needs to look the part without feeling constricted. The elasticized waistband facilitates flexibility and the utmost comfort all day long. Since it’s summertime, your Dad will be happy that the high-quality fabric is breathable and wicks away moisture. Any spills won’t be a problem as these pants are also water-repellant. Open side seam pockets are subtle and functional, but the best part is the comfort stretch for increased range of motion, making these pants perfect for Dad’s day-to-day.

10. Comma Home’s Bamboo Modal Weighted Cooling Blanket
It may seem counterintuitive to be buying a blanket for your Dad during the warm summer months. However, Comma Home’s Bamboo Modal Weighted Blanket is made to combat overheating and night sweats, while also soothing insomnia and restlessness. It’s the perfect gift for Dads who are hot sleepers, and it’s great for a more comfortable summer sleep. Not all blankets work the same, and some are better than others when it comes to the heat of the summer.
Here’s how the Bamboo Modal Weighted Blanket works: This is a weighted blanket that comes in 15 and 20 lbs. The weight is produced by small tempered glass beads that are secured inside of the blanket. The weight is evenly distributed over your entire body. It’s incredible how the weight signals your body to release melatonin and serotonin, the naturally-occurring hormones that regulate sleep and mood. This induces feelings of relaxation and sleepiness, and can effectively facilitate a deep, restful sleep.
The outer bamboo modal material is naturally cool to the touch and extra breathable. This allows hot air to circulate out of the blanket rather than keeping it trapped around your Dad’s body. This keeps him comfortably cool all night. The cooling properties of this blanket combined with its relaxing and insomnia-fighting benefits make it the ultimate summer sleep tool. Your Dad will finally experience quality rest that leaves him feeling refreshed every morning, and he’ll have you to thank for it. Circle Magazine readers can get 10% off with the code SLEEP10.
11. AcousticSheep’s Wireless SleepPhone
SleepPhones® are the world’s most comfortable headphones for sleeping, studying, relaxing, and traveling.
This unique product was developed by a family doctor who needed a way to listen to soothing music (to fall back asleep) after taking patient calls in the middle of the night.
SleepPhones® feature a luxuriously soft headband that contains thin removable speakers to play sleep music, audiobooks, guided meditation, white noise, or ASMR to help your Dad fall asleep. SleepPhones® are fully padded and comfortable for sleeping, with nothing sticking into the ears or poking the skin.

SleepPhones® are ideal not just for sleeping. They’re also great for meditating, listening to music, catching up on a good book or podcast, or walking the dog.
