Final Verdict

Any gift, especially if it includes a handwritten or drawn card from the kiddos will be appreciated. For food-loving dads, a GoldBelly Meal Kit (view on GoldBelly) is a tasty treat but may require some work to prepare it all.

What to Look for When Buying

Dad’s Lifestyle

Father’s Day is a way to celebrate dad’s role in the family. Choose a gift that complements his lifestyle and while some aspirational gifts can work, think about what he enjoys and how you can complement those interests. Whether he is a budding grill master or a fitness junkie, choose a gift that the dad in your life will brag about until next Father's Day.


Shop Wisely

While shopping local can be tricky, you can still make wise choices with your wallet. If you’re buying multiple gifts, seek out smaller businesses that offer unique options at an affordable price. Or in addition to an online purchase, group the gift with a gift card to a local restaurant or dad’s favorite coffee shop in your neighborhood.
