Great Father Son Gift Ideas

Updated on November 18, 2014

Father and Son Gifts

Need a Father and son gift? I have a variety of Dad and son gifts including T-shirts, gift baskets, picture frames, sports equipment, figurines and more.

You can listen to Father/son music while you're here as well. What makes this kind of gift so special is that Dads and sons can spend time together using the gift. Nothing like adding to that special bonding time.

Father and Son Shirts

I have always loved the idea of father and son shirts. It's a cute way they can both pay a tribute to each other. They are fun, but practical at the same time.

This shirt is available in all different sizes, so the age of the son doesn't matter. It's made with 100% cotton.

These sweatshirts are great for the cooler weather months. No chemicals were used as the print is non-toxic. You can add a gift card for this when you check out.

 

The world's oldest Dad became a dad again at age 96.

Father Son Picture Frames

8x10 DADDY'S BOY Picture & Poetry Photo Gift Frame ~ Cream/Burgundy Mat in BLACK Frame ~ Heartfelt Keepsake Picture Frame for Dad from his Boy/Son on Father's Day, Christmas, Birthday or Valentines Day!

Place your favorite Father and son picture in the frame. It comes with a very touching verse of what a son would say to his Dad which makes it perfect for any gift giving occasion.

This cute and contemporary picture frame would go nicely on a dad's desk.

 

The first Father's Day celebration in the United States was held in Spokane, Washington.

Imagine what kind of a cute picture you could insert into this frame. Easy to open to put your favorite picture in.

 

Father Son Fun

A gift basket is a great gift that a Father and son can share together.

If you feel creative, why not put together a gift basket they can share? You can fill it with items they both enjoy. You can really do this on any budget. If money is tight, find some items ate a local dollar type store.

You might also consider a theme basket. Think of something they both enjoy and make a basket filled with those items.

If you prefer ready made baskets, I have some for you below.

Football Gift Basket

Football Gift: Football Fanatic Sports Gift Basket

Lots of fun football treats and prizes in this basket. Father and son can share while watching the game together.

 

Who's ready for movie night?

Have Dad and his son put aside a special movie night complete with their favorite movies and this tasty basket to share.

 

Chocolate Gift Basket

Ghirardelli Chocolate Lovers Gift Basket

Got some chocolate lovers? This basket has a variety of different chocolates for dads and sons to sample.

 

Share breakfast together!

Food Gift Baskets

Imagine the snacking fun with any of these. They are on eBay.

Father and Son Song

Please enjoy this song by Cat Stevens while you're here.

If you're looking for something sentimental, how about a figurine?

Here's a tender moment between Father and son which shows the bond of love between them.

I think this is an adorable gift item for a new Dad. It's certainly something most dads can relate to.

 

This is particularly cute for young sons.

A fun father and son gift can be something that is played together.

A little round of basketball fun is a wonderful way for a Father and son to exercise and play together.

 

Father/Son Quote

Creating a child takes no love or skill; being a parent requires lots of both.

Kicking around a soccer ball offers up weekend fun.

 

A book that a Father and son can read together can also make for a nice gift.

Father and Son Books

These are on eBay.

Amazon Gift Card

Amazon.com $25 Gift Card (0108)
Amazon.com $25 Gift Card (0108)

Still undecided? If you're not sure what to get, you can always give them an Amazon gift card and this way they can shop and pick out something together. I happened to choose a $25 card, but Amazon gift cards can be purchased for numerous different amounts.

      That's one heart tugging video and needs to be watched and not just listened to for full impact...Cat did it again there for sure! I like to receive gifts that make my heart smile and you have some ideas here where I can see those smiles happening, sweet idea with Father's Day coming up...I can imagine a little boy coming to Day with a secret smile and a gift and Daddy seeing he got the very same t-shirt....there will be hugs! :)
