Outdoor Fathers Day Gift Ideas for Dad

Before you head out to the department store to go Father’s Day shopping, ask yourself this:

Does Dad really need another necktie? Or another bottle of cologne? Or another pair of socks?

If Dad loves being outside – either working in the garden or simply resting and relaxing – then why not give him outdoor gifts which he’ll really enjoy?

It makes perfect sense. Father’s Day falls during the best time of year to get outside and enjoy spending time with family and friends.

Don’t go to the department store. Rather, get something for Dad this year that’s truly a breath a fresh air.

Here are some outdoor gift ideas for Dad this Father’s Day.


Dad loves swimming and relaxing by the pool. He could spend all day out there.

But could the landscaping around the pool use a fresh design?

Arrange to have a pool landscape design expert visit Dad and talk about what he’d like done to turn the backyard pool into an at-home cottage experience.

Then, once Dad knows what he wants, you can then bring it to life for him by transforming the swimming pool into a serene, beautiful outdoor living space.


If Dad takes pride in his small backyard flower garden, then why not give him some plants he’ll be proud to add.

But not just any plants – these are plants which will keep mosquitoes away during the summer. That way, he can spend time outside without having to swat away bugs every few minutes or spray insect repellant on his skin.

Some mosquito-repellant plants you can give him are:

  • Citronella: The most common ingredient in bug sprays, citronella can be planted right into the ground
  • Horsemint: A dual-purpose plant, horsemint repels mosquitoes while attracting bees and butterflies
  • Marigolds: If Dad plants tomatoes in his backyard, marigolds are ideal for keeping insects away from them


Take a look at Dad’s garden tools.

Are they old and rusty?

Are they missing pieces?

Do they have cracks in them?

 Help Dad make quick work of yard work with a new set of backyard landscaping garden tools, like:

  • Shears
  • Pruners
  • Spades
  • Digging fork
  • Wheelbarrow


If Dad’s a true grill master (or fancies himself as one), then there’s a strong chance that the tools he currently has to clean his grill don’t clean like they used to.

Get him excited about grilling again – and give his grill a new lease on life too – by picking out an awesome set of grilling tools, like:

  • Wire scrubbing brushes
  • Tongs
  • Food flipper
  • Grill baskets

And once you’ve presented him with his new tools, offer to be his grilling assistant as his new grill becomes a focal point for great food and great conversation.


To all the Dads out there, we want to wish you a Happy Father’s Day. And we want to say thank you – for all that you do.

This year, make Father’s Day truly unique by giving him outdoor-themed gifts that he’ll enjoy. Not just on Father’s Day – but every day too.
