Shopping for the number one guy in your life can be stressful, intimidating, and even scary. And we get that. It's a conundrum that's especially amplified with daughters and their dads on Father's Day, when the stakes are higher than nearly any other day of the year. After all, how are you supposed to pick something out that says it all? Something with a sense of humor, but also with a sentimental element; something with personality and edge, but also with deep meaning. You've already given him ties, socks, and gift cards. Isn't there something out there with a little more heart? The short answer: Yes, yes, yes! Of course there is—and here, we're sharing exactly what that perfect gift might look like. We've done all the hard work for you by compiling our all-time favorite Father's Day gift ideas from daughters into one list, and once you take the time to sort through it, we're sure you'll agree that these are gifts with meaning. The truth is, buying your dad the perfect Father's Day present shouldn't have to be difficult—not if you approach the day with the right mindset, that is. What matters most is that you've taken the time to put thought into what he might like best, and that you've hand-selected it with love.
