Stereotypically, dads are pretty easy to please in the gift-giving department. Like if you get him new golf clubs or a gift card to Home Depot, he’ll make a corny joke about it and be set for the next few months. You probably know exactly what I’m talking about—whether you’ve seen it play on a sitcom or IRL on Father’s Day lol.

So, can someone explain why it feels like the ultimate mission impossible when the time comes to actually shop for a good gift for dad on his birthday? It could be because they always claim they already have everything they need. But frankly, that excuse is getting old, and I can’t be the only one who thinks dads deserve better! Which is why we’ve put together this list of 75 super thoughtful birthday gifts for dad.

Whether you see the big guy every day or live thousands of miles apart, you can still make him smile by gifting him something that suits his interests. We’ve got ideas for every dad personality type: the golfer, the outdoorsman, the traveler, the musician—whatever your dad’s passion or hobby might be, we’ve got a gift idea that will speak to his soul (yes, we’re that confident in our selections). From inexpensive gifts that he’ll use every day to pricier options that he’ll only break out for special occasions—be prepared to feel the love when your dad opens one of these 75 cool AF gifts on his birthday this year.
