Top 30 Father’s Day Gift Ideas

Like I said before, I am pretty particular about what I will and won’t get the husband for gifts. I try to get things he can eat, or will really use, as opposed to photos and artwork that will just clutter up his office.
In case you are a picky gift-giver like I am, I have assembled a list of my Top 30 Father’s Day Gift Ideas for 2012. I hope you enjoy!

I know I said I’m not a huge fan of photo gifts…but what dad wouldn’t love to have this?
“These shoes are too big for me, as you can plainly see. But even when I’m grown up, they will be big on me. The reason is quite simple, I’m sure you will agree…no one can fill these shoes like my daddy.”

28. Create a Father’s Day Photo Book from Design Aglow
This is a beautiful, and fun coffee table book! Ashley Campbell suggests these as some features for the book {check out the website for more suggestions}:
“What is your favorite thing to do with Daddy?”
“How strong is your Daddy?”
“Draw a picture of you and Daddy.”
“Why is Daddy better than Darth Vader or a Jedi Knight?”
“Daddy’s hands will always be bigger!”
“Why does Mommy love Daddy?”

Another one of those must-have photo gifts. Have your little ones dress like Daddy!

30. Man-quet by Christy Wright
I think this is by far my favorite gift idea! Not even just for Father’s Day, but birthdays, Christmas, etc. Attach mini liquor bottles and cigars {or whatever his heart fancies} to skewers and arrange in a basket, bucket, or other container.
