6 Unique Dad’s Day Gifts

Father’s Day is fast approaching! So how do you choose just the right gift to honor the steadfast man who always offers his love and support? It can be tricky to sift through gifts when there are so many types of dads, from golf dad and tech dad to craft beer dad and camping dad! That’s why we’ve come up with 6 unique gift ideas that will please any pa! Whether you’re shopping for a dad, grandpa, or other father figure, you’ll discover sweet and thoughtful gifts that just may bring a tear to his eye (though he’ll say it’s only allergies).

Frame a Happy Memory

Whether it’s a picture of when he first became a dad, a snap from a family outing to the ballpark, or a vintage photo of grandpa in his military uniform, a custom-framed photo makes a truly meaningful present. You’re giving the gift of a cherished memory that can always be on display and appreciated. When choosing custom frame options, think about what the photo looks like and the decor style in dad’s home so you can pick choices that complement both. Check out the timeless, handcrafted options at your local FastFrame store.

Turn Him into an Expert

Does Father only think he knows best? Turn him into an expert by gifting him classes taught by a pro, either in-person or online. Does dad love craft beer and a good project? Get him home brewing classes! Does he want to get more out of his workouts? Gift him a few sessions with a personal trainer! There are class options for everything from coding and cooking to dancing and scuba diving—just pick one based on dad’s current interests or something he’s always wanted to try.

Show Off His Team Spirit

If you have cherished memories of going to the ballpark or sitting courtside with dad, consider custom framing some beloved sports memorabilia as a gift. It will honor dad’s favorite sports team while conjuring those happy moments and elevating the decor in his man cave! You can frame an autographed jersey or create a shadow box with ticket stubs and that baseball he caught in the stands—the options are endless! Simply bring your memorabilia to your local FastFrame store and our talented framers will create a custom display that will have dad cheering!

Make Him a Member

Does dad love visiting your local theme park or history museum? Get him a season pass or make him a member so it’s easy for him to spend the day doing things he enjoys! Consider memberships to places you can visit as a family—such as the zoo if you have little ones or a national park pass for camping trips and outdoor adventures. (Just make sure to keep dad’s preferences first and foremost.) Dad will have fun and everyone will get some quality family time—a win-win!

Give Him an Exceptional Experience

We’ve all been missing many of our favorite experiences for over a year now and Dad has, too! As things begin to safely open up, consider giving Dad the experiences he’s been missing most. Is Dad an impressive bowler? Give him bowling passes! Is he a live music fanatic or a theater aficionado? Get him tickets to a concert or play he’ll love. Consider experiences he can enjoy with a friend or partner like a restaurant gift card or movie passes. You can also make it a family outing, and take everyone to a sports game or even an escape room!

Give Handmade Art

Nothing will bring a smile to dad’s face like handmade artwork made just for him! Do you have a creative family? Try making a collage with family photos or have kiddos make a crayon masterpiece. If you’d rather leave art to the professionals, order custom artwork from an online craft marketplace. You can get a painting, drawing, or digital image of a favorite family picture, childhood home, car or even dad’s beloved black lab, Betsy! Be sure to custom-frame his gift so the artwork is protected, displayed beautifully, and ready to hang.

We hope you’ve enjoyed our six favorite Father’s Day gift ideas! Many of these presents are enhanced through custom-framing, so be sure to stop by a FastFrame store to take your gift to the next level!
