Dads can do it all—love us, embarrass us, and empower us all at the same time.
Father’s Day is that one day a year when we should praise and appreciate our dads, grandpas, uncles, husbands, and other important people more than any other day. If you’re not sure what to get them yet, here’s something to help you along the way.
You’ve probably heard of dad hats, but what about “dad shirts”? To get your mind moving about what to get those special people in your life, we’ve come up with a few cool shirt design ideas for you to get inspired from. We’ve narrowed our list down to 5 “types of dad,” but as you know, the real list is endless.
1. For the first-time dad
Being a dad to a newborn is no joke. New dad life is full of perfect moments as well as terrifying ones. Even so, most fathers admit nothing compares to holding their baby in their arms for the first time.
Let the first-time dad in your life feel like a superstar because that’s who they are! Create a t-shirt that will remind them of this special time in their life every time they wear it.
2. For music-loving dad
If your father loves a good tune, they’ll love a personalized shirt with a nod to their favorite music.
You can create a design of their favorite musical genre or instrument, or spice up a classic dad shirt with illustrations of musical notes and symbols. You could also include lyrics from a song they’ve written.
3. For the traveler dad
Whether it’s camping in a nearby forest or an 18-hour flight to some exotic destination, this dad is always ready for adventures. If they could, they probably would change location every month. Coming up with ideas for travel-themed dad shirts is easy: look up their most cherished destinations or upcoming travel plans, and include them into the shirt design.
Think maps, itineraries, vacation pics, and holiday inside jokes. And while you’re at it, why not create a matching custom dad hat!
4. For the super proud dad
He went to all of your sports games and recitals and stuck all your accomplishments all over the fridge. He might even be storing your report cards in a special box for your own kids to see someday. This kind of dad wants everybody to know you’re their kid.
You could just put your face on the dad shirt, and they’d love it. But you can always create something more that shows your gratitude for his support throughout the years.
5. For the handyman dad
If you have this kind of dad, you probably didn’t know what a plumber was for a long time. Nothing is impossible for this one, and if they don’t know how to do something, they’ll learn. So, get your handyman dad the tool they’ve been thinking about getting, along with a cool dad shirt that reminds them of how much you appreciate their care.
Create a shirt design that includes a classic handyman one-liner, or create a themed collage or illustration as a thank you for all the hard work they’ve done.
No matter what you get the dads in your life this year, just make sure it comes from the heart and serves as a thank you for all their help and support.
Father’s Day in the US is the third Sunday of June, so order the gift early in the month so that it arrives well in time.
