15 Fabulous Father’s Day Gift Ideas

I’m a father, and I’ve also talked to a bunch of other guys about what they want most for Father’s day, so here’s my list of 15 Father’s Day gift ideas that are guaranteed to please your father, husband, or son (in no particular order):


1. ASUS Transformer TF101-A1 10.1-Inch Tablet

Every father wants a tablet computer, but why waste $1,000 on an iPad? This ASUS tablet is one of the most popular, and most highly rated tablets on the market…and it’s a tad over $300! I’ve discovered a secret to buying tables: buy a tablet like this, that allows you to insert an SD media card, and then buy the version that has the lowest hard drive capacity. You can slip a 32GB card into the tablet, and you’ve just saved a bundle of money! You can buy the tablet here:


2. Gourmet Shaving Set

In my popular article & video “The Art of Shaving – 10 Steps to the Perfect Shave” I share a perfectly researched set of shaving items for the man who wants a higher quality old-fashioned shave, without spending big bucks (actually saves money in the long run). Here they are:

A. Safety Razor: Merkur Model 180 Long Handle Safety Razor


B. Razor Blades: Merkur Double Edge Safety Razor Blades – 10 Count


C. Shaving Brush: Colonel Conk Progress Model 1001 Standard Pure Badger Shaving Brush


D. Shaving Cream: Proraso Shaving Cream


E. Aftershave Lotion / Face Cream: Every Man Jack


F. Razor & Brush Stand: Colonel Conk Evernice Model 775 Chrome Safety Razor Stand


3. Makita Compact Cordless Drill 2-Piece Combo Kit

All fathers will use this amazing drill set, which is a fantastic bargain with the normal drill and impact driver. You can buy it here:


4. Leatherman 830850 Skeletool CX Multitool

This is a very popular and highly rated multitool, which any cool father would love!


5. Marmot Halo 6 Person Tent

I recently received this as a gift from my family and absolutely love it! Any man will also love taking his family into the manly wilderness with this tent!



6. The Lord of the Rings Trilogy [Blu-ray]

I’ve never met a guy who didn’t absolutely love The Lord of the Rings movies. Now that they’ve been released on Blu-ray DVD, your husband can kick back and relax to an epic movie! See this VIDEO Preview:


7. Nikon Digital SLR Cameras

Here are some entry level Nikon cameras that will empower your favorite father to capture stunning photographs and High Definition videos of his children or grandchildren…watch these VIDEOS:

8. Samsung 1080p 3D Plasma HDTV

This is the last gift that any father will expect that you’ll buy for him, but the first that he wants! This TV is at the top of my list!



9. Brenthaven ProStyle Laptop Slim Pack

Because I love this amazing lightweight (but bombproof) laptop backpack, I did a review on in it here.


 10. Weber 7416 Rapidfire BBQ Chimney Starter

Every true man loves to cook with fire, and this highly rated chimney starter will help him have the summer Barbeques fired up in no time!

It is scientifically impossible to displease a man with chocolate. These divine Lindt chocolate truffles are some of my favorites:

This Roku is definately on my list, so I can stream all those cool free chanels onto my HD Television. You can buy it here:


13. Rick Steves’ Europe All 90 Shows Box Set

Do you know a father that is passionate about traveling? This Europe box set works out to be less than $1 per show, which is a ton cheaper than $20 per show for other travel programs. Rick Steves is kind of nerdy, but has an incredible travel show:


14. Petzl E99 PG Tikka XP 2 Headlamp

Every guy can use a good headlamp, especially for camping, working on a car, or saving someone in a mine shaft 🙂


15. Fujitsu ScanSnap Instant Mobile Scanner

This cool mobile scanner has been on my gift list for awhile now! Imagine scanning all the papers from your filing cabinets, and then throwing all that paper into the recycling bin! This scanner will digitize all your documents, business cards, receipts, and bills…and your man can do it all while he’s sitting in his hotel room while on a business trip!

    Josh, what brand of tent would you recommend for a family of 7 on a budget? The best tent for the money? We currently have a 6 man tent but on our last camping trip we found it a little small.

      Hi Sabra! The tent I’ve listed may well be big enough for 7. It all depends on floor size. The Marmot Halo 6 is 10′ x 10’…what size is your tent floor? Also, what is your budget? There are many inexpensive tents out there, but will they last for very long? I’ve hauled my North Face mountaineering tent all over the world, and spent many, many nights in it. It wasn’t cheap, but it is going strong after 17 years of intense use.

    Josh, you are such a handsome man, you have aged well! When did we all grow up? I wish you would have told me about Lord of the Rings, I just bought him The Notebook on blue ray. Just kidding, I don’t even want to know how he would react to that. Awesome gift ideas!

      Hi Julia, thanks for the compliment! I still don’t feel like I’ve grown up, even though I look more grown up (a few wrinkles). I work with the scouts and keep thinking, “sheesh, I always thought scout leaders were more mature than I am.” Thanks for checking out my article!
