There are endless gifts and lists for dads from grooming supplies to tech gear and gadgets. It begins to feel impossible to find the perfect gift for the ‘guy who has everything’. We have rounded up our very favorite finds for Father’s Day 2021 for the outdoor-loving dad or pop or dada or just awesome dude in your life.

father's day gift guide images of gift ideas for dad including stanley flask, Yeti cooler, smartwool socks and eno hammock.
power bank charger

Portable Power Bank – Even while unplugging in the outdoors, Dad wants to have his phone charged up for GPS and emergencies. Okay and maybe sneaking updates on the game.

Hiking Socks– A fresh pair of wool socks to keep his feet dry during hiking adventures. 

Buff– Masks may very well be getting a good-bye in the new normal but this buff (a current mask of choice) will prove useful long after.

Peak Design Capture Clip for Camera– This bag clip is a game-changer for the photog dad who takes his heavy camera on outdoor adventures.

Petzl Tikka Headlamp– If he doesn’t already have a headlamp or his is looking like the kids got their hands on it one too many times, this is a must-buy for summer camping and hiking adventures.


Hammock– We highly encourage the double on this one! You know dad will end up sharing it with the kids more often than not! And don’t forget the straps.

camp chair

Helinox Chair Zero – Almost every backpacker carries a luxury item, and for Mike, this item is his camp chair. It is ideal for backcountry treks, but the size is also convenient when you have limited trunk space on those car-camping or beach vacation adventures. It may or may not also make a regular appearance at soccer and baseball games.

Stanley Adventure Flask– A leakproof flask with a screw cap for camping or backpacking adventures. Note, it is quite heavy for backpacking which is our only complaint.

Fleece Jacket – Keep dad warm and cozy and even a bit stylish on cool summer nights. This functional and fashionable fleece pullover works for dads of all ages, shapes and interests.

Osprey Day Pack – Our favorite daypack with the Osprey lifetime warranty. This pack will hold the arsenal of gear dad hauls around to keep everyone fed, dry, warm, and hydrated.

leatherman multi-tool

Leatherman Multi-Tool– You’d be surprised how many outdoor-loving dads cludge together pliers, knives, bottle openers, and screwdrivers for camping. You know, rather than fork over the cash for an all-in-one tool like these. Not that we know anyone personally who did that for a few years.

Yeti Cooler– Yeti coolers aren’t just good looking they really are amazing at their job, keeping your food cold. If dad has been eyeing a new cooler, the Yeti is sure to win big smiles and level up the family camping game.

Waterproof Clip Speakers – Hanging out is just more enjoyable with some nice tunes. We have toddler tested this speaker and it holds up nicely after a few drops, tosses, and rolls down the trail.

Camp Kitchen– Firebans often shut-down our campfire dreams here in the rocky mountains during the summer and fall. What we thought was a consession turns out to be our favorite camp kitchen gadget. Dad will love the jet boil to boil water for coffee or Freeze-dry meals all year round.

Wishing you a wonderful Father’s Day and a summer filled with fresh air and adventure!
