Picking out gifts for your boyfriend’s parents can be SO intimidating. You want to impress them but you probably don’t want to spend a crazy amount of money on their gifts.
Boyfriend’s dads are especially hard to impress. Most dads will just buy themselves whatever they need so it’s super tricky to shop for them.
I know when I started dating my boyfriend I had no idea what to get his parents for holidays and birthdays.
Luckily, after 5 years of dating I’ve become a pro when it comes to what to get them. I’ve even had two years in a row where my boyfriend’s dad told me my gift was his favorite of the year!
To help you out, I’ve put together this list of 23 perfect gifts for your boyfriend’s dad that he’s going to obsess over!
This post is all about tried and true gifts to get your boyfriend’s dad.
Best Gifts for Boyfriend’s Dad:
- Gift for boyfriend’s dad who has everything: Toilet Golf
- Best budget gift for boyfriend’s dad: Beer Soap
- Best gift for beer drinkers: Ultimate Pint Glass
- The best gift for dads with pets: Pet Feeding Chart
- Best gift for coffee lovers: Aeropress coffee maker
If your boyfriend’s dad is a coffee drinker, he’ll totally geek out over the Aeropress.
I’ve been using my Aeropress for years and it’s seriously the best cup of coffee you can make at home.
My boyfriend’s dad also uses the Aeropress and he loves it. He uses it with this gooseneck water kettle and it’s the perfect coffee-lover combo.
2. Ultimate Pint Glass
I got my boyfriend’s dad this Ultimate Pint Glass for Christmas last year and he said it was the best gift he got!
The glass has special etchings in it that help the beer produce a better head. It’s also shaped specifically for better tasting/smelling of your beer. It’s the absolute perfect gift for beer nerds.
3. Pet Feeding Chart
Another gift I got my boyfriend’s dad was this pet feeding chart. After constantly hearing my boyfriend’s parents ask each other if they fed the dog, I knew this would be the perfect gift.
It turned out to be another favorite gift! They still use it almost three years later.

4. Cord Organizers
Any dad who likes to stay organized will love getting some extra cord organizers as a gift.
I work from home so I have a million cords everywhere. These help me keep track of my cords and they keep them from slipping off the desk when they’re not plugged in.
One of my favorite Christmas gifts for boyfriend’s dad is a good pair of slippers. Dads love to be comfortable when they’re lounging at home or watching a football game.
My boyfriend’s dad loves his Muk Luk slippers but I’ve heard really good things about these Dearfoams slippers.
6. Yeti Mug
My absolute favorite brand of travel mugs is Yeti. They’re rugged, durable, and look great – everything a dad is looking for in a mug!
They come in lots of different colors and sizes so you’ll definitely find one he likes.
7. Bluetooth Speaker
If your boyfriend’s dad is a big music guy, he’ll love a new bluetooth speaker.
This speaker from OontZ is super affordable and has amazing reviews on Amazon.
8. Mug Warmer
One of the most popular Christmas gifts for boyfriend’s dad is this mug warmer. You can set your coffee mug on it and it’ll keep your drink warm as long as you need it to.
There are a ton of different options on the market but I like this one because it has an automatic shutoff option.
9. Coffee Variety Pack
Another perfect gift for coffee lovers is this coffee variety pack.

11. Whiskey Decanter
Is your boyfriend’s dad a whiskey lover? A unique gift for him would be a whiskey decanter.
There are tons of different ones to choose from but I linked a few that I think are especially cool. If you really want to impress him, include a bottle of whiskey to go along with it.

This massage gun would make a really good gift for just about anyone. It can help with pain pretty much anywhere on the body but it’s especially helpful for your neck and back.
This one comes with a ton of different attachments so you can get really deep into your muscles.

While we’re on the golf theme, this t-shirt is absolutely hilarious.
The text reads “I MADE A (bogey on every) HOLE (and then threw my putter) IN ONE (of the ponds)”. Any golfer will get a kick out of this shirt.
You can’t go wrong with giving a nice wallet as a gift. It’s one of those things that guys forget to buy for themselves.
A leather wallet is a classic choice but these slim wallets are really popular right now too.

Everyone who works out would appreciate getting a new gym bag.
This gym bag has tons of pockets and a separate compartment for shoes which is so important.
19. Dopp Kit
In case you didn’t know (I didn’t!), a dopp kit is basically the male version of a toiletries bag.
Amazon has some really nice, high quality leather dopp kits for super cheap! This one is only $34 but it looks super expensive.
20. Beer Holster
This beer holster belt is hilarious AND practical! Now he can have his favorite drinks on hand when he’s grilling, doing yard work, or just hanging out.
The belt can fit 6 beers at a time and it’ll fit up to a size 50 waist.
21. Beer Soap
This beer soap is the perfect gift because he’ll definitely get use out of it!
Don’t worry, he won’t step out of the shower smelling like an IPA. It actually smells more like citrus and sandalwood. It’s a very masculine and refreshing scent that he’ll love.

Your boyfriend’s dad will love having happy hour in the shower with this shower beer holder.
This holder will stick to any flat, glossy surface like mirrors and shower tiles. Just make sure to wait 24 hours after installation before you put a beer into it.
