Oak Tree and Acorn T-shirt Set

They say the acorn doesn’t fall far from the oak, and I’m never sure whether that is supposed to be a compliment. This adult/kiddo t-shirt set makes it look pretty good, though. The pairing is perfect for fathers who like to fancy themselves as tall, strong oak trees who foster their child’s development like a seedling. As a bonus, this set is printed with organic ink on soft organic cotton shirts.

Personalized Swiss Army Knife

Every dad needs a pocket knife. It’s basically the law of the land. How special will the father in your life feel with a personalized pocket knife, complete with a corkscrew? Go with his adult first name or have it engraved with whatever he’s known by around the house (Daddy, Papa, or what have you). Two things are certain: he will love it and he will use it.

Source Recycled Toothbrush

A toothbrush might seem like a bit of a silly gift for Father’s Day, but dads have been known to be a little silly, so it seems to fit. This isn’t just any old toothbrush, though, as the Source toothbrush by Radius is made from recycled materials, such as old paper money and wood pulp. When the bristles wear down, you replace and recycle the top portion of the toothbrush, keeping the handle for years to come. We’re not holding our breath, but we think this might become known as the OTHER Father’s Day gift that starts with a “t.”

Nalgene Flask

I don’t know any fathers who wouldn’t like to have a flask like this. Nalgene products are tough and versatile, just like dad. This flask includes a removable, insulating sleeve for hot beverage options, and holds up to 12 ounces of whatever Dad has a thirst for. (You know, like Tang and stuff.)

Stainless Steel Pint Cup

Strong, eco-friendly, and just a little bit chic – that just about sums up these stainless steel pint cups from Klean Kanteen. These cups are made from 18/8 food grade steel, so they won’t make his drink taste funny, and they are also BPA-free and dishwasher safe. Buy one just for dad or a set of 4 so he can share with his dudes.

TrekLight Gear Double Hammock

Does the dad on your list like to head out into nature and just chill? For him, a comfy camping hammock is a huge win for Father’s Day. The Trek Light Double hammock is their top seller for a reason, and even they admit that you don’t need a buddy in order to use it. Dads of all sizes will enjoy stretching out in comfort in this hammock that can follow him from the backyard to the tailgating party to a backcountry campsite. It can hold up to 400lbs but weighs just 20oz and packs down small, so it’s easy to tote along wherever his Dadventures may take him.

Plant a tree in his name… in Brazil!

For the dad who really does have everything, and is definitely the tree-hugging dirt-worshipping type, this is the perfect gift. Plant a tree (or five!) in a Brazilian tree reserve in his name. Tell him about it in a handmade card, and he’ll have to shed that tough guy exterior for at least a few moments.
