Picking something for my husband on Father’s Day has always been quite the challenge as it seems the man has everything, and if he doesn’t, he just gets it himself.  So that sets the children and me up to get a little creative and also sometimes looking for the higher ticket items.  In this Father’s Day Gift Ideas round-up, you’ll find price ranges from $10.00 to over $100.00.

From kids crafts ideas to tech items for dad, there’s something on this list that will work!

I don’t know about the dad in your life but I know both my father and husband likes to unwind and play video games.  The Nintendo Switch gaming console is a lot of fun and can be played as a family.  The games are much like the ones you likely grew up with and it can definitely bring back a lot of happy memories!

Or, if you like to play games with the hubby, this is a fun game to try.  It is rated M for mature so it isn’t something you’ll want to play around the kids (for sure) but it makes the top of list on a lot of gaming websites out there.  This game requires 2 players to play as everything is done in teamwork, so I guess you can say you’ll have some bonding time. 😉

For the dads that live an active lifestyle, giving a smartwatch for Father’s Day would be a good idea.  The newer smartwatches can not only track heartbeat, calories, and fitness routines, but they can also act as your smartphone giving you access to a lot of the top apps out there.

My husband’s favorite hobby is photography.  He loves to get out, take pictures of nature or just capture pictures of the kids.  For someone just starting out in photography, the Sony a6000 series is a great pick.  It’s easy to use,  not heavy at all, and is a great camera for it’s price. It’s also great for taking in focus pictures at sports events.
