Guaranteed smiles, and maybe even some happy tears.

Dads tend to be the most difficult members of the family to shop for. When asked what they want point-blank, the usual list of Father's Day gift ideas tends to read like a list of errands: socks, a dress shirt for work, golf balls, new shoes, etc. 

When they act like they don't want/need anything, the whole buying-gifts-for-Dad routine can be uninspiring, to say the least. 

Taking to the internet and searching for the best Father's Day gifts doesn't always yield the most exciting results either. Which is why many kids and parents are turning to Etsy to find cool personalized gifts to give their dads this year.

4. A gift that's cool, but still useful. 

Etsy

There's a reason dads are known for asking for the most boring of gifts — they tend to like things that serve a purpose. So if your dad is very much in that category — i.e., he has openly questioned the point of birthday cards during the middle of opening one — then this personalized valet station will make the perfect gift. 

With a place to charge your phone, store your nice watches and leave your keys, this gift comes with many purposes and can be personalized with his name, making it extra-thoughtful. Get this personalized tech station here!

7. Great for the dad who always has a "project."

Etsy

While the projects can range from the "is this really necessary" to "okay this is legitimately dangerous" every handyman dad needs his tools. And what better way to say you support his craftsmanship — even if it's from a distance — than a personalized hammer?

This thoughtful twist on a classic dad gift is perfect for the golfer who likes his name on things. The case is also a great place to store those prized golf balls, like the one he swore he made a hole in one with. Get this personalized golf ball set and case here!
