These unique Father’s Day gift ideas will make a lasting impression on the Super Dad in your life. Choosing a personalized gift makes Father’s Day feel extra special!
Growing up in the 90s, Father’s Day was all about giving dad a new tie, coffee mug, or power tools, right?
While there’s still nothing wrong with those gifts, these days I’m all about more personalized, homemade gifts.
True Story: Our first baby was born on Father’s Day in 2015. My husband and I had plans to go see Jurassic World at the movie theater. Around 4 hours into labor, I jokingly said to my husband, “I guess we’re not going to see Jurassic World today.”
Although we didn’t end up going to the movies, we did end up going home with a new baby. That night as we sat on the couch, it had dawned on me that it was Father’s Day. I looked at him and said, gesturing to the baby, “I got you this for Father’s Day.”
So while it’s hard to top…you know, a new baby as a Father’s Day gift, each year since then, I have always tried to come up with some unique Father’s Day gift ideas.
Unique Father’s Day Gift Ideas for the Super Dad in Your Life
1. Super Dad Personalized Storybook
This book is the perfect gift for babies and toddlers to give to dad. You can personalize the book by adding a “face-in-the-hole” with dad’s picture. The cover is personalized with their name and a dedication from the kids.

2. Cook Dad’s Favorite Meal
Since I don’t eat red meat or pork, for Father’s Day I usually make some over-the-top meat dinner for my husband.
When I make dinner on regular nights, I cook something the whole family will eat, but for this occasion, a special homemade dinner is the perfect unique father’s day gift idea.
Last year, I shared this photo on Instagram of this homemade In-n-Out style burger I made for Eric for Father’s Day.
I also love the Father’s Day Menu in The Pioneer Woman’s A Year of Holidays cookbook.
3. All Natural DIY Hair Pomade
Store-bought hair pomade can be expensive – especially if you go for the all-natural stuff.
I have actually made this recipe, so I can vouch that it does work.
However, I will say that if you have a baby and toddler running around, such as myself, I highly suggest waiting until naptime to undertake this project, as it requires your undivided attention.
P.S. My husband actually has this pomade in his hair in the above photos with our daughter ↑

4. My Dad Rocks Photo Frame
Does your toddler randomly collect rocks while playing or walking outside? I actually have a plastic container full of rocks in our garage, because I just don’t have it in me to get rid of them.
Our toddler always seems so excited about the rocks she picks out, so over the years we’ve just kept them.
When I came across this craft on Pinterest, I thought it was the perfect use for all those rocks, and on top of that, it’s also a very unique, heartfelt Father’s Day gift.

5. Dollar Shave Club Subscription Box
After having two kids, I have to say, I really love any and all subscription boxes. Anything that can be delivered to my front door is a win in my book.
I got this as a gift for my husband a few years ago and we are currently still subscribed.
You can customize the box any way you like, and like most subscription boxes, you can choose how often you receive a shipment.
