This Father’s Day get the man in your life what he really wants. Below is a list of thoughtful gifts that have been tried and verified by yours truly. Because I’ve purchased these items for the men in my own life, I can guarantee they are as unique as the dad, husband, or brother in yours, no matter what his style.

For The Bearded Brute

What He Really Wants-A Beard Kit

Any bearded man should have a BEARD KIT. This includes brushes and combs, a good lather kit and brush, some quality beard scissors, a good razor to stave away the dreaded neck-beard, aftershave (who doesn’t love Old Spice?), and a nice bag for traveling and keeping it all tidy. The list can go on and on with conditioners, waxes, oils, and other grooming additions, but if your man is missing these essential items, his beard is SERIOUSLY lacking the love it deserves! The products below are used by some of the men in my own family who can attest to their quality and usefulness.


My husband LOVES this groomer and uses it a few times a week to maintain stubble and keep his beard tidy and well-defined. It’s rechargeable, can be used wet or dry, works on any length of growth, and each blade lasts up to 4 months! This is an all-around great tool for facial hair maintenance when he doesn’t have time for a close, lathered shave.

This is a premium, superior safety razor for a VERY close shave. The replacement blades are dirt cheap and will leave his face feeling as soft as a baby’s butt. The heavy feel and quality materials will make the man in your life feel like a 1950’s GENTLEMAN (as per my husband). So, get him what he really wants…soft, KISSABLE cheeks!

For The Coffee Connoisseur

What He Really Wants-The Coffee Essentials

A good cup of coffee goes far beyond just high-quality beans. The grind, the brew, the temperature, and even the vessel play important roles in creating the perfect cup of coffee. If the man in your life LOVES coffee (like my husband does), then he’ll surely appreciate the items below. Get your coffee lover what he really wants this Father’s Day…the PERFECT cup of coffee!


If you’ve ever had to walk away from a cup of coffee to do something, only to come back to it later to find it cold and unappealing, then you know what a wasteful bummer it can be. I know, sad right? With the Ember Mug, a cup of coffee will stay its ideal temperature for well over an hour, no matter what may come up in the meantime! Just register the mug in the app, set your ideal temperature, and that’s it! Never worry about coffee going cold again! A hot cup of coffee is what he really wants in the morning and this mug makes the perfect Father’s Day gift!

Every coffee lover should have a French Press. The bold, rich flavor it creates is unparalleled and unachievable through conventional coffee makers. This particular french press is affordable, looks nice, and is super easy to clean. It’s also great to take camping for a nice, hot cup of coffee in the wilderness.

If the man in your life is passionate about coffee, then he’ll love this Conical Burr Coffee Grinder. With over 40 grind settings, he’ll be sure to achieve the PERFECT grind whether he’s using a conventional coffee maker, espresso machine, or french press. Trust me when I say having a man in your life who’s passionate about coffee is NEVER a bad thing. Some of the best cups of coffee I’ve ever had have been made at home with love, by my husband.

For The Musical Man

What He Really Wants-The Instrumentals

The music-loving man in your life deserves to be celebrated. There’s no better way to celebrate him than with these hand-selected items, guaranteed to put a smile on his face and a melody in his heart! When it comes to music, there’s no question the right medium can transform your favorite song into a memorable listening experience. The classic crackle of vinyl on a record player and the enveloping grip of quality headphones will quickly transport your favorite guy to his musical happy place.


Apple AirPods are extremely comfortable to wear and offer a frustration-free pairing experience with every device. With a crisp sound, long-lasting battery, convenient charging case, and no occlusion effect, the Apple AirPods are one of the most reliable and convenient earbuds on the market.

Get the music enthusiast in your life what he really wants, GREAT SOUND! These Beyerdynamic Over-Ear Studio Headphones offer AMAZING studio-quality sound at an affordable price. My husband does audio mixing and mastering and spent a lot of time researching before deciding on these particular headphones. He loves that the music he listens to is accurately reproduced and that he’s able to hear every nuance and subtlety that often gets lost with other headphones.

I got this Karaoke Microphone for my brother-in-law for his recent birthday because he loves to sing and do karaoke (he’s FAR braver than I). While I knew he would love it, I had NO IDEA just how much. This microphone is AWESOME for the price! It currently goes to every gathering and event in our family and never fails to become the life of the party. With incredible sound, ease of use, and cool LED light effects, the music-lover in your life will LOVE this thoughtful and FUN gift.

What he really wants this Father’s Day is entertainment! The Fire TV 4K Stick gives you 4K Ultra HD streaming quality by turning any TV into a smart TV. Launch your favorite apps (Netflix, Hulu, Prime, Disney+, etc.) by speaking directly into the remote, which has one of the most extensive voice recognition capabilities of any streaming device on the market. With Amazon Alexa basically built right in, the Fire Stick allows you to find recipes, monitor your home security, stream music in multiple rooms, and much more, all from the comfort of your living room.

A nice looking wallet is always a great gift for any man. This particular wallet is made from quality leather and aluminum technology that prevents bending, breaking, and wireless card theft. Slide over the little button to pop out cards for easy and quick access without the fuss (our toddler thinks this is SO COOL). The slim design fits nicely in a back pocket without bulging or getting in the way of sitting down comfortably. My husband LOVES this wallet and is constantly receiving comments about how cool it is and how nice it looks.

If the special man in your life is anything like MY husband, what he really wants this Father’s Day is for his keys, wallet, and remote to be EXACTLY where he left them!
