10 Best Gift Ideas for Dad That'll Make You His Favorite Daughter

Father’s Day is on the way and that means it’s once again time for daughters everywhere to consider the everpresent conundrum: what in the actual heck should we get Dad? Maybe he has it all. Maybe he claims he doesn’t want anything. Or...trickiest yet...maybe he’s really, really picky and has interests we don’t exactly share.

Cratejoy is here to help! We’ve rounded up some of the perfect gifts for Dad from his little girl...and not just for Father’s Day. For any occasion you want to say “I love you” and show him he’s the best dad ever, treat him to a unique subscription box catered to his personality and taste. He’ll be wowed by your thoughtfulness. Favorite Daughter status? It’ll be in the bag.

If you’re looking for the best Father's Day present, your best bet is to think seasonally. Summer’s on the way, so get him a thoughtful gift for the sunny season. Maybe a funny t-shirt subscription to complement his bad dad jokes. Or, how about a bbq kit subscription to kick his grilling game up a notch?

Is Dad’s birthday on the horizon? We think the best birthday gifts for Dad speak to his personality. Maybe a Craftsman Crate to enhance his DIY projects; a Spices and Sauces subscription if he’s a bit of a foodie; or, if he’s not all that into technology, something to keep him entertained without a screen, like Puzzle Culture.

And while the holidays aren’t here yet, they always seem to sneak up quickly. Start planning now! We think the best Christmas gifts for Dad are all about enjoying time with loved ones. Get him a subscription box of Mystery Games for fun with the fam. Or, if he likes to kick back with his buds, get him a Beer Kit (throw in a personalized bottle opener for extra bonus points), a Whiskey or Cocktail Kit (add a decanter for flair), and cigars are always a solid choice.

Whether you're looking for a great Father's Day gift, the best birthday gift, or the ultimate Christmas gift, there's always something for Dad with a subscription box from Cratejoy. Keep reading for a roundup of our faves.
