Shopping for gifts in 2020 has already been quite different than in years past: Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, high school graduations and Memorial Day Weekend parties, get-togethers and overall behaviors had to significantly shift. And now, as we enter into summer and turn to Father’s Day gifting and celebrations, we’re likewise paying attention to how the coronavirus is morphing our typical June parties and Father’s Day gift giving.

For some, Father’s Day is a difficult holiday when it comes to shopping. This is especially true if the dad in your life claims to already have everything they need. Though ordering another polo shirt or popular tech product could prove useful, you can be sure that a personalized gift is an option that will be remembered far beyond the holiday. Give a one-of-a-kind keepsake like a photo book or a custom mug that will bring forth memories with every encounter. Or offer a custom grilling kit or personalized apron to the father figure who’s always finding new recipes for the family. Picture-centric products and gifts for food lovers only scratch the surface of personalized items you can give this Father’s Day. Below, we compiled some of the best personalized Father’s Day gifts to help you find more gift ideas — from engraved Apple products to tasteful coffee subscriptions — that will prove thoughtful and memorable in years to come.

Best personalized Father’s Day gifts

1. Apple Engraving and Gift Wrapping

From the latest iPhone to an iPad or AirPods, gifting an Apple product leaves a lasting impression. It’s certainly an investment but also one that should last for years to come. If you want to personalize your Apple device gift, Apple allows you to do so on virtually any of its devices and gives you options including plain text and emojis.

2. Nance Industries Custom Monogrammed Welcome Mat

Here’s an old school and traditional gift that can elevate any porch to a custom-fit entrance. The highly-rated and monogrammed welcome mat comes in two different sizes and is made of coconut husk with a rubber border.

3. ROAM Jaunt

They may not be able to travel right now — or at least are likely advised not to do so. But that will hopefully change before long and you can both prep them for their next trip or assure them you’re looking forward to it with a custom-fit suitcase. ROAM’s luggage checks all the functional boxes of design, both inside and out with smart compartments and rugged exteriors. They also have a hand up on design, allowing you to choose just how colorful you want your carry-on to be — if you don’t know their favorite colors, a gift card is a great way to get them involved.

You’ll be able to choose from a dozen colors and get them a versatile, portable mug in any size you deem best for their adventures, from a 14-ounce mug to a 24-ounce mug or 12-ounce bottle. The cap is designed to be leakproof and sippable from any side. Its rugged stainless steel build and double-wall vacuum insulated side will keep your cold drinks cold and warm drinks warm.

5. Man Crates Whiskey Appreciation Crate

7. Mixbook Retro Father’s Day Photo Book

You can even upload your own stickers and backgrounds to tailor your book to a specific theme.

8. Legacybox

Legacybox offers a way to bundle home movies and photos into one single keepsake. When you receive the physical box in the mail, fill it with tapes, film, photos and audio recordings and send it to Legacybox to do the rest. The resulting product will be a professionally-digitized memento in the form of a DVD, thumb drive or the cloud.

9. Nixplay 2K Smart Digital Picture Frame

This digital picture frame is a very popular gift, partly given its relative affordability and longevity. Their most recent 2K-capable photo frame sports a 9.7-inch screen with a 2K resolution (that’s 2048x1536, or a bit sharper than 1080p). It connects to Wi-Fi so you don’t have to constantly copy new photos to an SD card or USB drive. Instead, you can cycle through photos from Facebook, Instagram, Flickr or Google Photos. That means you can easily send them a recent photo you took and renew their picture collection.

10. Custom BBQ Apron

Make them feel like a professional grill master with this custom apron. It’s one of the best grilling gifts for Father’s Day thanks to the ability to fully customize the product.

These custom face socks are likely to have the whole room laughing. Choose a photo of your face, your dad’s face or the face of a pet and turn your photo into a pair of socks that is designed to be both memorable and comfortable. They are fully customizable, meaning you can pick all the text, fonts and graphics you’d like to feature on the socks.

12. Man Crates Jerky Tie

Custom sports gifts for dad

If you have a golf player in your life, this personalized crate of golf balls is bound to be a useful gift. Each ball is monogramed with a UV printer and the ink is designed to last through multiple games.

14. Custom NFL Jersey

Instead of wearing the jersey of their favorite player, give your dad a custom jersey featuring their own name. The jerseys are available in multiple sizes, from small to 5X-large, and the mesh side panels and tailored fit are designed for comfort. Whether they’re a Patriots fan or a Chiefs devotee, the NFL shop offers a jersey for every team in the league.

15. Custom NFL Face Masks

These face masks are made from 100-percent polyester and the NFL notes they’re non-medical nor designed to prevent any illness whatsoever so let your father figure know these aren’t replacements for face masks following CDC guidelines. These face masks will allow them to fit into the modern landscape while supporting their favorite teams, as well as the All In Challenge Foundation, a nonprofit focused on reducing food insecurity. All proceeds from these licensed and machine-washable face masks go to the foundation.
