No, he’s not your biological dad, but your father-in-law deserves just as much of a celebration as your own dad does on Father’s Day. When it comes to finding gifts for your father-in-law, the same rule applies, and he deserves something thoughtful. After all, he helped bring your partner into this world and raised him to treat you well, so you have a lot to appreciate him for.

When you’re on the hunt for Father’s Day gifts for your father-in-law, you have the option to go with something specific to your relationship or with something you’ve heard him mention before or that you think he could use at home. Think about what his hobbies are, how he likes to dress, his favorite foods, and just his personality, in general, to help you come up with the best gift for him. If the two of you share an inside joke, a personalized gift that relates to it could be a real hit.

Make sure to get your partner involved in this hunt for Father’s Day gifts for your father-in-law, too, because they probably know their dad even better than you do, so between the two of you you’ll be able to find something perfect for him. If you’re still having a hard time and he’s the kind of guy who refuses to ever send a wish list, here are some great gifts for fathers-in-law to help you find the perfect present for him.

For the guy who loves a good book, an e-reader is a fantastic gift because it will clear up space on his bookshelf and is much easier to bring with him wherever he goes. If he already has a device, set him up with a digital book subscription, like Kindle Unlimited.


Golfing Shoes

These sneakers will add a pop of color to his outfit on the golf course and give him plenty of support since they’re designed for low-impact athletics. They’re also super breathable, comfortable, and durable.


Whiskey Sampler

With this gift set, your father-in-law will be treated to samples of nine different whiskies, gourmet popcorn, a recipe card, and a new tumbler glass. Whiskeys in the set include Johnnie Walker Black Label, Woodford Reserve, Larceny Bourbon, and more.


Vintage Inspired Record Player

If he has a collection of vinyl records, a turntable would make for a fun gift. This one will not only play his favorite records but also has Bluetooth technology so he can also pair his phone with it to listen to his favorite songs that he may not have on vinyl.


Wall Art

Does he have a space in his home that could use a little color and character? Gift him with a bright, meaningful piece of wall art. You can get this piece as a digital download and then have it printed to the size you’d like and even get it framed for a thoughtful and functional gift.


Grilling Accessories

Every grillmaster needs a good set of tools, so your father-in-law might appreciate this 34-piece set that includes the essentials for both backyard grilling as well as small-scale camp grilling. He’ll also get a grilling glove, meat injector, and a meat thermometer, which will help him make the perfect steak.


Soft Slippers

Who doesn’t love a good pair of slippers? These ones have a hard sole, wool lining, and a suede upper, making them both stylish and comfortable. Plus, since you can pick from seven color options, there’s sure to be a style he will like.


Family T-Shirts

These shirts are absolutely amazing and he’d probably love to wear them with his kid and his grandkids, if he has any. Gift him with “The Original” tee and have your partner wear “The Remix” so they can match during the day (and don’t forget to snap a few pictures of them).


Pizza Maker

Learning how to cook the perfect crispy pizza isn’t easy, which is why this pizza maker is so great because it does the hard work for you so you get a perfectly crispy pizza every time. Homemade pizzas will taste like they came straight from a brick oven with this gadget that has settings for thin, medium, and thick crusts, and they’ll stay warm between bites because once it’s done cooking the pizza it can serve as a warmer.


Curated Meat Box

Your father-in-law can skip his monthly trip to the butcher with this box that will deliver between 8 and 26 pounds of meat right to his door (depending on the plan/box you choose). He can either create his own box or let Butcher Box do the curation for him with pork, poultry, and beef options.


Funny Baby Yoda Mug

You don’t have to be a Star Wars fan to appreciate (and love) baby Yoda. This coffee mug features The Child himself and even includes a classic pun, which is an essential element to the best of the worst dad jokes.


Healthy Beard Maintenance

A healthy beard is a good-looking beard, and this three-piece set has everything he needs to keep his beard strong for 30 days. It comes with a month’s worth of Superfood Supplements, daily leave-in beard conditioner, and a container of beard balm. It’s safe for all skin types and will leave his beard feeling softer and stronger than ever.


A Book Of Dad Jokes

If he loves a good dad joke, then he’ll get a kick out of this book that includes 106 pages of jokes that are so bad you can’t help but laugh. Just be warned that you will most certainly be subjected to these jokes after he’s received the gift.


Beer Of The Month Club

For the craft beer enthusiast, this subscription box will deliver 12 bottles to his door every month. Each box includes four different beer styles from two breweries (or more, depending on the box) as well as notes on the breweries and taste profiles. You can choose to get beers from US breweries or international breweries.


Casual Jacket

You can’t go wrong with a high-quality, lightweight, casual jacket. Think about his clothing style and the activities he likes to do outside to help you find one that’s just right for him. This one is made from moisture-wicking fleece, has zippered pockets, and is available in three colors.


Wine Rack

If he loves a good bottle of wine, then he could probably use a pretty wine rack to store them in. When picking one for him, consider his home decor and try to find something that will fit, or ask his partner for some tips for finding one that’s right for their home.


Delicious Spices

Does he love to cook and try new foods? If so, he would love some premium spices to add to his collection. Diaspora Co. offers a wide variety of high-quality spices from India that are commonly used in Indian dishes.


Grill Cover

This may not be the most flashy gift, but if he has an outdoor grill, he needs a good cover to keep it protected from the elements. If you can, find out exactly what kind of grill he has so that you can ensure you’re getting one that will fit.


Bath & Body Set

Your father-in-law deserves some quality bath and body products, and Art of Sport has some of the best ones out there (especially for athletes). You can choose to purchase products individually or to create your own set using the website’s recommendation generator. Either way, your father-in-law is going to feel a little pampered with this Father’s Day gift.


Liquor Making Kit

Instead of gifting him with a bottle of his favorite liquor, get him a kit to make his own. There are all kinds of options out there that make it easy to make their own booze, like this gin-making kit which includes everything he needs to make two 375ml bottles of his very own gin.


Card Game

Add to his family-game-night collection with a new board or card game. When you’re picking one out, consider his favorite types of games (strategy, cards, luck, collaborative) so you can ensure he will love it. Don’t forget to offer to play it with him, too.


Cheese Serving Board

If he loves to munch on cheese and crackers (who doesn’t?), a nice cheese serving board would make for a great Father’s Day gift for your father-in-law. This one includes a marble board with a hidden drawer that holds four different cheese knives.


Streaming Device

Get him to finally cut the cable cord by gifting him with a new streaming device like a Roku, Google Chromecast, or a Fire TV Stick. If you want to go the extra mile, gift him with a subscription to a platform you think he’ll like, and offer to set everything up for him.


Thoughtful Message Keychain

If you think of him as your dad, then this keychain will make your father-in-law’s Father’s Day feel extra special. It’s a sweet reminder of how much you love him and how important he is to you.


A Fun Book

This is a fun gift for your father-in-law if you’re expecting or if you already have little kids. Sure, it’s a kid’s story, but he will have so much fun reading it to his grandkids and laughing along with them with every turn of a page.


French Press Coffee

There’s just something about french press coffee that feels a little more luxurious, and you can gift him with one so he can brew a cup any time he likes. This french press makes 34 oz of coffee, is insulated to keep the temperature just right, and it has a filter to keep his coffee fresh and free of sediments.


Colorful Necktie

For the guy who loves to make a statement, gift him with a brightly colored necktie like this one with polka dots. It’s available in four colors and you can choose between a skinny, modern, or traditional size so that you know it’ll fit his style.


Sweet Treats

If your father-in-law loves a good sweet treat, send him some love via baked goods. You can check out your local bakery, find a specialty bakery that delivers in your area, or gift him with a variety of treats, like this six-box pack of super-soft cookies.


Stylish Watch

No matter how many smartwatches there are on the market, there’s still something to be said for a classic stylish wristwatch. If your father-in-law could use an upgrade, consider this one with a minimalist look and a leather band.


A Dress Shirt

Whether he’s retired, working from home, or goes into an office, your father-in-law could probably use a new dress shirt. Find something with a pattern that matches his personality, and consider giving him a casual short-sleeve shirt for the summer months, like this one with little sailboats on it.

No matter what Father’s Day gift for your father-in-law you decide on, he’s going to appreciate the thought and love you put into it. Remember, he likely thinks of you as one of his own, so he deserves a little something that lets him know you feel the same way.
