Gifts for the Handy Dad
If your husband or dad are anything like mine, you’re often finding them working on one project or another. My husband loves the following picks:
1. An impact driver: he recommends Makita or Dewalt. If your hubs is just getting into handy-work, this is a must have!
2. Tool Cart: Our tool cart gets a lot of use, and makes home-based projects a lot more organized (amen).
3. Leatherman Multi-Tool: This is an excellent multi-tool product that your husband would definitely appreciate you splurging on (so he doesn’t have to do it himself).
4. (and .5) Custom engraved shop tools: We love these sweet additions to a growing tool kit!
6. Best Handyman Ever Shirt: If your man is already up to date on all the shop supplies, consider this sweet etsy shirt that gives him credit for all his hard.
7. Engraved Multi-tool: this multi-tool is a great functional option that is more affordable than the Leatherman and can be engraved.
Gifts for the Dad Who Loves Wine & Craft Beer
We love these great options for the beer or wine geek in your home.
Reclaimed Wood Wine and Food Serving Tray: We love this tray for wine tasting and backyard dinner parties.
Wine (or beer) fridge: If you’re at the point where you’ve joined a few wine clubs, it’s time for you to buy a wine fridge so you can store all that delicious goodness at the proper temp. We like this one from Costco because it has a good amount of storage for the price.
Craft Beer Bear: Nothing says, “California beer dad” like a bear holding a beer, amirite?
Beer Growler Cooler: If your hubby likes the local craft beers as much as mine, he will love a custom monogrammed growler cooler.
DIY Beer Kits: If you guy is looking to try to make his own, we like these two brand options. There are definitely more expensive options on the market, but this is a great first step!
Gifts for the King of the Backyard
My husband is a big fan of backyard activities so this was an easy list!
Bocce Ball Set: While there are bocce ball courts around town (Landmark in Dry Creek, Juilliard Park, and the main park in St. Helena to name a few), you don’t need a formal court to have a good time with Bocce Ball!
Extra Large Jenga: Guaranteed to be family fun for everyone, a giant Jenga set that is made for sunny backyard play.
Pizza Stone: We use ours on our grill for great grilled pizza with smokey flavor.
Cornhole: Our cornhole game is an absolute boredom buster and offers hours of entertainment.
Salt Plank: This salt plank is for the master griller!
Weber Smoker: My husband has been eyeing a few smokers pretty seriously for a while, and I just love the narrow profile of this one.
Gifts for the Movie Buff
If you’re married to a movie buff or series fanatic, you know how well these gifts will go over!
Pocket sized movie projector: this is not the movie projector from our childhood! This little guy can showcase his favorite movies anywhere he goes.
Shirts and Sweaters representing: Top Gun, Star Wars, and Karate Kid. Need we say more?
Star Wars Quote Sign: “I Love You”/”I Know” is the perfect art addition for the couple who loves jedis and princesses.
Gifts for the Bay Area Sports Fan
We can’t forget about the sports dads! If your guy has a favorite team but no gear, now is a great time to get him some representation! And if he DOES have a lot of gear, consider getting him something that is player specific.
Gifts for the Sentimental Dad
If your guy is the kind who prefers something with a more personal touch consider one of these options:
Wood Watch with Custom Engraving: My husband loves this wood watch from Etsy.
Matching Moon Shirts: Mom and daughter sets have nothing on this sweet ensemble!
Engraved Guitar Pick: I’m unsure how this metal pick would sound, but it’s a sweet touch, and something dad could easily keep in his pocket for good luck. <3
Custom Gift Box for Dads: Because they shouldn’t just be for moms!
► 1 6oz BIG soap
► 1 lip balm your choice (recommend bourbon)
► 1-2oz Wild Wood cream deodorant
► 1-complemantary handmade matchbook
► 1 Man Cave Candle in Tobacco and Bay Leaf (8oz)
Paper Bear Mug: Annnd we’re back to bears, but this one is riding a tricycle so it’s basically the best thing ever.
Custom Wood Constellation Map: Features special birthdays or occasions with a glimpse of what the sky looked like that day.
