To the man who has been your rock all these years, there is no better time than father’s day to remind him how much you love him and say you are thankful and blessed to have a father like him with a meaningful father’s day gift.
There is no shortage of gifts on the market but it doesn’t help make up our minds about what to give. If you really want to gift something that your father can use in his daily life and reminds him of your love, then you are at the right place.
I have made sure to include some personalized gifts, fun and unique gifts, funny gifts, handmade gifts and even health & fitness related father’s day gift ideas.

There are many ways to convey your feelings through a gift, and personalized gifts are the way to go if you want to express your love with a few heartfelt words.
You are not restricted to a mono sentence like I love you, dad! You have the choice to engrave more meaningful sentences like – “I feel blessed to have you as my father”.
Here are a few suggestions for the ones who are never short of words when it comes to expressing their feelings! These gifts not only stand out but also make an amazing father’s day gift.

Handmade DIY Father’s Day Gift Ideas
Even though markets are full of commercial gifts, doesn’t mean handmade gifts have lost their charm.
It takes time to make handmade gifts that most of us don’t have nowadays which is why most people will simply resort to buying something off the shelves.
But if you have managed to tuck away some time in your schedule to prepare a handmade DIY gift to surprise your father and looking for some ideas then here are some that are very easy, yet impressive.
#15 Hand-painted DIY Canvas
Before you think you need to be an artist to make a canvas, you will be glad to know that you can make this hand-painted canvas a success with just a few art supplies and little to no drawing skills.
All you need is a blank canvas, stencil of your choice and spray paints or acrylic paints. These are all easily available on Amazon and they are very affordable.
You are not restricted to using only design stencils. There are stencils with lettering so it easy to write something on the canvas over the designs.
If you want, you can also add some pictures of you with your father on the canvas along with the design and text.

Health And Fitness Gift For Father
A well thought Father’s Day Gift can also be something that says you care about your father’s well being.
Not many people think about these gifts in general when it comes to parents but they are great for maintaining their health.
Most of us are no strangers to back pain or stiff shoulders. Long working hours at desk or driving can make anyone’s shoulders tense up and cause pain.
Going for a professional massage every day would be nice but no one has the money or the time. But thanks to technology an at home affordable body massager can help with all the body pain.
There are a lot of small and big body massagers in the market. But it is best to gift a massager that is portable, has speed settings, heat control, and bi-directional movement to mimic movement.
A massager like this can be used on any part of the body that needs a massage to relieve stress and it does not take much space either.
#18 Fitness Tracker
It’s a good idea to get a little bit of exercise daily to maintain health in the long run but it’s also very easy to lose track of daily exercise goals if nobody is keeping a track.
A fitness tracker will help your father do just that, keep a track of his daily exercise goals.
This fitness tracker can record heart rate, sleep, step, calories, distance, display message notifications, allows one to set sedentary reminders, remote camera control, vibrate alarm clock, weather forecast, 14 training modes, 5 watch faces, breathing guide, hang up calls, music control and stopwatch.
The 14 training modes on this device provide an analytical approach to fitness and the best part is that all these features can be controlled via an app as well.
#19 Air Fryer
We are what we eat! Watching what we eat is more important than spending hours exercising. There is no denying the fact that fried food is very tasty and very unhealthy.
With an air fryer you only need 1 tbsp oil to fry the food. How amazing is that?
This gift definitely does not sound like a regular gift but if your father doesn’t have an Air Fryer yet and he loves to snack on fried food then you should definitely give him an Air Fryer for this father’s day gift.
I recently wrote a gift guide that is full of helpful gift ideas for elderly parents (nursing home friendly). Check it out if you are looking for a practical gift for an elderly father.
