20+ Father’s Day Gift Ideas for Dads of All Types

If there is anything we know well, it is what men want. Father’s Day is right around the corner, literally, it’s this Sunday, June 17th, 2018! It’s close enough that you should run out and pick something up, but not too close that you’ve missed your chance — because that would be just wrong! Your dad was the one who probably bought you your first toy, stood on the sidelines of your childhood sports team games, changed your diapers when you were a baby, and even put up with your mom (we meant support of course) for a whole 9-months too.


Our Chief Swagger Officer (aka the Editor-in-Chief), Steven Branco appeared on CHCH Morning Live with Bob Cowan to discuss some of these Father’s Day Gift Ideas on June 12 at 8am ET.

We know fathers aren’t the easiest to buy for, especially if your dad just picks up whatever he wants, when he wants it. But here’s some of our top gift ideas depending on what type of Dad you have — because we all know they’re not the same!
