Father’s Day always sneaks up on me, and then I end up running to the grocery store and buying the same boxes of candy because I don’t have time to purchase anything else. This year I am thinking ahead, and I am thinking unique. I have been browsing Etsy and come up with some great ideas for Father’s Day presents.
Personalized BBQ Flipper
What better way to express your feelings to dad than by gifting him this grilling tool that has, “Dad, I flipping’ love you” engraved on the handle. At only $15.00 this flipper won’t break the bank, but it does ship from Canada so make sure you order early.
Batman Vinyl Wall Clock
If your dad or husband is a comic book fan like my husband is, this gift will be their all-time favorite Father’s Day present. This functional clock is hand-crafted from a vinyl record and is a wallet-friendly $34.72. Unfortunately it is made to order and ships from Thailand, so this may have to wait for next year’s Father’s Day.
Calvin and Hobbes Custom Converse Shoes
My husband is a Calvin and Hobbes fan, not me, but these shoes are so cool even I want them! These Converse All Star shoes are adorned with images of the comic duo, and come in a range of sizes. They are $89.99.
Handmade “Dad” Mug
If dad is a coffee drinker he is sure to love this hand made and hand painted mug. It will hold 13 oz of liquid, and will last a lifetime. It is $34 and ships from the United States.
Vintage Look Faux Leather DSLR Bag
If photography is your dad’s thing, this camera bag is the perfect gift. The faux-leather vintage has the perfect “manly” feel, but the case is totally functional. It looks like an expensive leather bag, but since it is faux it is a very budget-friendly $29.99 for a small bag, up to $39.99 for a large.
