You're thankful for your kids and for the guy who raises them with you. Say so this June with a special present for your partner. Yep, we're talking about Father's Day gifts for your husband. Whether it's his first year celebrating or he has a stack of "super-duper dad" cards, gifts for your husband from his loving spouse on this special day will be a welcome gesture—especially if your kids haven't graduated from homemade crafts yet. From something that supports his hobbies to R&R goodies that help him prop his feet up and take a break, he'll really appreciate the surprise. That's why we've rounded up the best Father's Day gift ideas for husbands so you can show him how much you love and support him.

1. Hardcover Photo Book

There's quite possibly nothing as sentimental as a photo gift. You and your husband will look back on all the memories this photo book holds for years—even decades—to come. It features a chic fabric binding, a display-worthy dust jacket with a foil title and premium printing paper for a luxe and durable construction. There's no better way to show off his fatherhood.

2. Super Dad Mug

As far as personalized Father's Day gifts for husbands go, this one is a fave. Illustrator Lizzie Lee will turn him into a superhero and then print the image on a mug he can use for his morning coffee (AKA his superpower generator).

3. Beef Jerky Flower Bouquet

Flowers are a classic gift to show love and appreciation. Step up the idea for the man of the hour with a bouquet made out of beef jerky.

Simply help your hubby massage it on his shoulders and back to unwind this Father's Day.
