Standard

This Father’s Day, don’t fall into the same, boring gift trap as everyone else. There are so many gift ideas out there beyond the tie—ones that Dad will be sure to love. We’ve curated some of our favorite, unique Father’s Day gifts—all sold by Giftbar vendors around the country—so you can really earn that thank-you note this year!

Coffee Subscription

Meru Coffee Farms
Chicago-based Meru Coffee Farms produces and distributes fine, direct-trade coffees from Mount Meru, Tanzania to various retailers and wholesalers. But, you can give Dad the gift of environmentally-conscious coffee through a subscription that’ll have beans at his door every month. Meru offers a variety of subscription options—perfect for Father’s Day gifts—from three pounds of coffee a month for three months to one pound of coffee a month for an entire year. Not sure what Dad will prefer? Give him a Meru gift card instead—he can pick up a K-Cup Filter Kit for his home coffee machine, too!

Custom Dress Shirt

The New York-based company offers a huge variety of fabrics and styles to choose from, but that’s only the beginning. Customization options include choosing the shirt cut, collar style, cuff type, accent fabrics and monograms—just to name a few. We absolutely love the dark blue linen for summer, but if you want to let Dad choose for himself, you can’t go wrong with a gift card.
