The Perfect Father’s Day Gift: From Sentimental to Practical

Dads can be notoriously tricky to shop for. Whenever you bring up gifts, they always seem to say, “I don’t need anything” or “save your money!” At least that’s how Derrick is. If the dad in your life isn’t into material gifts, consider going the sentimental route, or focusing on an experience you both can enjoy together. Concerts, trips, or even a fun day out can show your love and appreciation in a way that creates lasting memories. That’s what’s so nice about gifting experiences — there’s nothing better than creating fun memories. After all, the perfect gift brings joy and happy moments!

If you’re looking for something to pair with your sweet experience gift, or just need some help brainstorming, I’ve got you covered. These are things that most guys would love and, to be honest, need — whether they like to admit it or not. Trust me, you can’t go wrong with any of these ideas.

So, let’s dive in and find that perfect gift to make Father’s Day extra special this year!

1. Frame TV 

Dad’s love their tech gifts (and technically this could even be a gift for yourself — bonus!). Look at the streamlined look of the Frame TV — it blends in nicely with any home aesthetic, and can even act as art! It’s a win-win.

2. Higher Dose Mat 

Dads never really seem to actually seek out relaxation. This genius product grounds you in earth’s magnetic field for a full-body reset, while infrared light promotes enhanced blood flow and improved muscle recovery. And, let’s be honest, as they get older, this could be really beneficial! Technology nowadays is so cool. We have one and it truly is like an at-home spa 😊

3. Yeti Backpack Cooler 

Convenient and guaranteed to be used all summer long. The backpack design is such a clever idea for keeping everything hands-free!

4. Tommy Bahama Swim Trunks or J. Crew Seersucker Trunks 

Here are two options depending on his style: a funky pair fit for a tropical vacation, and a more minimalist seersucker one for a low-key coastal vibe. If you happen to be giving the gift of an adventure or vacation, throw these in as a nice hint at what their gift might be. Regardless of a trip, swim trunks are a summer necessity and you can have fun with this gift and go crazy with the prints!

5. Sunglasses 

A no-brainer. He might already have a pair, but I swear men lose their sunglasses all the time. It never hurts to give them the perfect new pair!

6. Picture Frame 

I am the biggest proponent of these CB2 frames. In my opinion, one of the sweetest gifts you can give a dad is a framed picture from a happy memory that you two have together.

7. Cornhole 

A fun gift that sparks conversation, creates memories, and allows you to be outside! Cornhole is the perfect gift if you’re looking to get competitive.

8. Slides/Sandals 

Summer shoes are always nice to receive, and they’re an item that can get boring for guys to purchase on their own. I’ve been loving sandals this season, and it makes outfits feel more summery!

9. The Perfect Summer Shirt 

Go the safe route and look for a new nice shirt that is versatile! It’s always a welcome addition to any wardrobe.

10. Hot Sauce 

For the cook! These are so yummy and make for an easy and simple gift.

11. Passport Holder 

If you’re going somewhere fun anytime soon, this is thoughtful and personal. It’s practical and keeps them feeling organized and in check — plus maybe a little “extra.”

12. Whiskey Barrel 

Any guy would be excited to receive one of these! Perfect for their man cave and to show off to their friends. Love the tabletop design.

We look to the dads in our lives for guidance and wisdom; they’ve been our rocks, our mentors, and our biggest supporters. This Father’s Day, let’s show them just how much they mean to us with thoughtful gifts that make them feel loved and appreciated. Whether big or small, no gift goes unnoticed by dads. It’s the gesture and the sentiment behind it that counts the most. Here’s to celebrating all the amazing dads out there — thank you for everything you do!

Come take a stroll through our cozy living spaces that have been transformed with thoughtful furnishings. From the kitchen to the dining and living area, every corner reflects the way we live and the love we have for hosting and gathering with friends and family.

Our dining area is all about creating memories. We opted for banquette seating that not only saves space, but invites everyone to gather ‘round for a meal filled with laughter and love.

The living room is small but mighty. Defined by an area rug and a mix of cozy seating—including a well-made sofa from @mosshome and timeless vintage chairs I scored on Facebook Marketplace—it’s the perfect spot for unwinding, reading, or catching up with loved ones.

At Clouz Houz, we believe in turning a house into a warm, welcoming home. Our furnishings aren’t just pieces; they’re part of our story, creating spaces that reflect our lifestyle and values.

Life is short. Make it Beautiful!
