Finding the perfect gift for the guy who’s been there through it all can be tricky: sentimental or practical? Is he a sports enthusiast or a cocktail connoisseur? Luckily, we have picks for every kind of dad.

  2. Photo Book

    Father's day photo book gift idea from Shutterfly

    Sometimes photographs just say it all. And a whole book of them hits on a sentimental note that will  probably result in a few happy tears from dad—especially when he makes it to the father-daughter wedding dance page.

  3. Pocket Square

    There are dozens of pocket squares to choose from, but this sweet hand-embroidered message makes this one stand out. Cue the proud dad tears, especially on your wedding day. Plus, the 100 percent cotton material is machine washable.

This carry-on-size kit tucks into a duffel with ease and comes packed with everything he needs for a close shave: pre-shave oil, shaving cream, a badger shaving brush and after-shave balm.

    Swiss stays collar stays gift set

    You may question your dad's fashion choices sometimes, but you can both agree that a sharp collar is a great finishing touch to a polished, put-together look. These brass collar stays are adjustable and guaranteed never to break or bend. Bonus: They come in a sleek carrying case (so he's less likely to misplace one).

  6. Beer Buddies

    Custom leather beer caddy

    Is your dad a craft beer kind of guy? Then he'll love mixing a six-pack of his favorite brews in this handmade leather carrying caddy. Customize it with a monogram and fill it with a few of his favorite varieties.

  7. Whiskey Wedge

    Whiskey ice wedge

    For the spirit-sipping father, get him a gift that enhances his cocktail experience. One big block of triangular ice chills his drink. Thanks to its unique shape, the ice melts much slower (so it won't dilute the drink as quickly as regular cubes). The silicone mold is even dishwasher safe.

  8. Charger Roll-Up Case

    Leather monogrammed phone case and card carrier

    Treat your dad to a stylish (and practical), all-in-one case that can house his phone charger, earphones and any other cables that tend to get lost and tangled in his pockets. He'll love the pebble leather finish, and you'll love the free gold foil monogramming details.

    Hand-stitched leather belt with brass buckle

    Can't you picture your dad wearing this to his next golf outing? The dark leather and unique hand-stitched design means this belt can easily be dressed up for a dinner on the town or dressed down for a casual post wedding afternoon brunch.
