Unique and Memorable Gift Ideas for Father’s Day

Sharing is caring!

Looking for some unique and memorable gift ideas for Father’s Day?  I have a few I would like to share with you today for those special men in your lives. These gift ideas are great for your spouse, your father or grandfather. Today’s post is sponsored by Jord watches. All opinions, suggestions and photos are my own.


Here are a few ideas for those special men that are truly memorable and thoughtful. I have given all of these to my husband and/or father at one time or another and they were so appreciated.

Sports Gift Basket

For the sports fan, a gift basket is always fun to receive! Pssst! It is also fun to put together! Items to include could be tickets to a game or event, T-shirts, hats, glassware, flags and jackets. You can bake or order team cookies and add some viewing snacks to include in the basket.
Have the kids make posters or signs as part of the package. If you cannot afford major league prices for tickets, consider minor or local league games. Buy tickets for friends or the entire family to make it a fun outing that won’t be forgotten.


Busy dads like moms, often don’t take enough time for themselves. Consider giving that special dad lessons in something they have always wanted to do such as golf, guitar, scuba diving, cooking, photography or beer crafting.
Most local sporting good stores and sports centers offer lesson packages. It’s also great to add other members of the family so that they can take lessons together. Several years ago, our family (except me) took guitar lessons together and it was really fun! We talk about those times often and while not everyone still plays, the times spent together are treasured.


The Gift of Time

If only we could give actual time. Well, you can give them the gift of keeping time. The stylish features and modern design of Jord watches are great for guys of all ages. I love the uniqueness and sustainability of Jord’s natural wood watches.
Each watch comes beautifully boxed and is ready for gift giving. Jord watches are stylish and beautifully distinctive. I chose this Jord watch to my husband and he loves it. “Jord” in Swedish and Danish translates to earth, soil and land in English. Do you know a guy that would love to embrace the sustainability of a gift like this? The collection of men’s watches can be found here.


These timeless gifts also make great graduation gifts for the men (or women) in your life.

What are you giving your spouse or Dad for Father’s Day?

Cassidy has never worn watches, but my dad always has! And lessons are a great idea. I know I'd like that, and there are so many things that would make Cassidy happy to do - piano lessons, cooking lessons, anything!

My dad is a watch person too - always has one on! My husband lived getting golf lessons one year!

That's neat that he collected them. I gave my dad ties many times too.
