Father’s Day is a very special day for fathers and families alike- you can relax, spend time with loved ones, and enjoy each other’s company. It is a great time to express gratitude toward the men that have played an important role in your family, so we’ve compiled a few excellent and ambitious Father’s Day gift ideas that will make it a day to remember!


For the Dad Who Loves Sports

Snag tickets to watch your father’s favorite team. If he prefers to watch the game from the comfort of his Toll Brothers home rather than at the ballpark, surprise him with a thoughtful plan to begin building his very own sports bar area, where you and the entire family can spend time together. Host a surprise watch party for the big game with his fellow sports fanatics or get him legendary sports memorabilia like autographed, game-used equipment or jerseys. Framed posters or photos will be the perfect addition to his sports den. For the fathers who still love playing sports, consider buying him new equipment like golf clubs, sportswear, or even a gift card to a golf course or sporting goods store!


For the Dad Who Loves Movies

Take a trip to the movie theater, or give a gift card or Movie Pass if he is a regular at the cinema. If you’re feeling more ambitious, offer to help him design and create a home theater area where he can enjoy all of his favorite movies in a cozy, comfortable space. Feel free to add in a nice gift basket filled with a collection of his favorites and staple movie snacks like popcorn or candy. Know his favorite movie? Get him a framed and matted poster and if possible, find one that has been signed by the cast and/or director.


For the Dad Who Loves Grilling

Surprise him with a set of cooking utensils, spice rubs, sauces, or gourmet chips and nuts. Purchase a premade basket or create your own with his favorite barbecue essentials. If his grill is outdated, don’t hesitate to switch it out for a more cutting-edge model. If you’re looking for a more hands-on gift that is sure to wow your dad, consider building him an outdoor patio area. Construct the perfect scene where he can spend the day with family and friends taking in the fresh air and grilling his favorite foods.


For the Dad Who Loves Outdoor Adventures

Treat your dad to an outdoor adventure. Take a leisurely walk through a park or jump into a canoe and paddle down a waterway. Spend quality time fishing at a nearby lake or ocean or hike up a mountain. Grab a few tents and take the whole family out camping or enjoy a scenic bike ride through the country. If your adventurous dad needs new equipment, surprise him with something new you can do together. Whatever you choose, you’ll be sure to create an experience he’ll remember for years to come.


For the Dad Who Loves Gaming

If your father is a “gamer,” you may consider buying him a new video game system or a few challenging games that he’s had his eyes on. If you’re feeling ambitious, surprise your dad with an offer to design and build his very own gaming room with you in your Toll Brothers home. Whether it’s vintage arcade games or billiards, create a space devoted to spending quality time together!
