I have personally always felt shopping for men to be easier than shopping for women.

Guys are fairly specific about what they want, once you get the information out of them.

Men are a lot like women when it comes to gifts. They want to be wowed and they really want something special and unique, just like they are.

This gift guide lists gifts that get to the heart of every man. From the geek dad to the DIY dad.

You will be sure to find something he will cherish.

    These are great ideas! I love the sock fancy one! My husband wears a suit every day. it gets boring and you can only change your tie so often1 He loves adding fun socks to spice up his wardrob

    • June 1, 2017 / 4:57 pm

      Right! Socks are the only real way other than the tie to fancy a man up when wearing a suit. Sure there are different tie clips but I don’t know I just think socks are more fun.

    • June 1, 2017 / 4:56 pm

      I know right – hard choice between the two. I have to say the TV gets TONS of use in our home lol. I would get the one you will enjoy more haha!

  3. June 1, 2017 / 5:02 pm

    The headlamp is an awesome idea for anyone with a dad who likes to work outside. You can never go wrong with a smoker either!

    • June 1, 2017 / 5:06 pm

      I tell you what my husband and I get SO MUCH use out of ours. When my kids moved out they each got one and we have bought them as gifts for people for holidays as well. They are always welcomed and well used.

    • June 3, 2017 / 10:44 am

      They have so many choices too! I love that because there is literally something for every guy. Glad to hear your husband loved his.

  4. June 1, 2017 / 10:13 pm

    My husband has been dropping hints about getting a new tv. He would love this curve tv, for sure.

  5. June 1, 2017 / 10:35 pm

    I am looking into getting my husband one of those drones, someday he will have one! I love all of these ideas so I will have to decide which one is best for him but you have so many ideas that I think I will have to get him more. Cologne is nice but is more for me so I feel like he needs something on top of that one. Thanks for all of the great ideas!

      Haha yes the cologne is as much for us as them isn’t it! I think you thought that the golf putter was a drone. Someone else thought the same thing lol – it IS an interesting looking putter and does resemble a drone come to think of it. Also drones are super popular right now so I am sure they are on tons of gift guides. It is however a golf putter. I am so happy you took a look at the guide Melissa! Thank you!

  6. June 1, 2017 / 10:54 pm

    I am willing to bet that my husband would just LOVE one of these drones! These are all fabulous ideas and believe me, I needed them! Thank you!

    • June 3, 2017 / 11:00 am

      Oh I bet you thought that the golf putter was a drone. That putter is unusual and does sort of look like one at a glance! Drones are also super popular for Father’s Day!

    • June 3, 2017 / 10:49 am

      I would check out the Story Spark tees then! They are totally all about tech and people. Every guy I have got them for (techie guys) love them!

      Thank you Carol. Yeah guys may not always admit it but they like to get spoiled too.

  12. June 2, 2017 / 10:17 pm

    My husband has mentioned a smoker a time or two. We’ll see….

  13. June 3, 2017 / 12:13 pm

    I haven’t thought about what to get my husband yet for Father’s Day, but he loves anything music-related (i.e. band tees). I do love many of these ideas, though!
