  6. A Day at Home By Themselves. This gift is something I am sure that every Father really wants but would never ask for.  I’m sure they have fantasized about having a day at home where they didn’t have to do anything.  They could sit on the couch all day, catch up on Netflix or baseball while they raid the refrigerator and eat all the things their wife tells them not to touch.  So get everyone out of the house and say, “Dad, today is your day to do what you really want…nothing.”
  7. Billy Jealousy Beard Grooming Kit. Beards have been gaining popularity over the past couple years and if your Dad has hopped on this beard bandwagon than getting him a Belly Jealousy Beard Grooming Kit is a perfect gift.  This kit includes a beard brush, pocket mirror, mustache scissors, tweazers, combs, pocket and mustache combs as well as beard conditioner and shampoo.  It is everything they need to keep their facial hair in tip top grooming shape!

Do you have a new father in your life?  This is a perfect gift for a new dad or a soon to be dad.  This manual of sorts gives great tips and is a great survival guide for fathers.  Fathers can learn how to change a diaper in a pack sports stadium and how to create a drawer full of decoy toys for their little ones. 
  9. Star Wars Gifts for your Geeky Dad. Is your dad a super Star Wars fan?  If so, there is nothing more that he would want but anything that is Star Wars theme related.  A bonus about having a father who is a Star Wars fan is that they will pretty much love anything you get them as long as it is related to Star Wars. Need to replace that old robe he won’t let go of?  Get him a Star Wars R2-D2 Adult Bathrobe.  Want dad to cook more often?  He will love the Star Wars Lightsaber BBQ Tongs with sounds and grill a feast for everyone with them!
  10. Sign him up for a class. If the dad in your life has been talking about learning more about how to hone in his photography skills or maybe he always wanted to learn woodworking, signing him up for a class is a perfect Father’s Day gift.  He will enjoy learning something new and it gives him the little push he needs to try something he always wanted to do.  It is always good for the soul to explore and rediscover. A new motivation in a new hobby can mean energy and excitement for other things as well.
