This Father’s Day, don’t forget those stepdad gifts
Dads are notoriously hard to buy for, and finding the right Father’s Day gift can present some real conundrums. It’s too easy to revert to the fallback present of a gift card or (shudder) a necktie. Your stepdad is no different, and may actually be even harder to buy for, especially if you haven’t known him all that long. While the history of Father’s Day may not take stepdads into account, you definitely shouldn’t leave him off your shopping list. Whether your relationship with him is warm and fuzzy or just cordial and respectful, let him know that he occupies a special place in your heart with thoughtful stepdad gifts.
What’s a good Father’s Day gift for a stepdad?
The best gifts for stepdads have nothing to do with price. Instead, they’re about showing him you took the time to figure out what would make him smile—and then went out and found it. From unique gifts like cool grilling gadgets and tech items to meaningful trinkets and homemade Father’s Day gifts, the gift ideas on this list are sure to be a hit.
Father’s Day always falls on the third Sunday in June—it’s June 19 this year—so you’ve still got some time to find the perfect gift for your dad and your bonus dad. Oh, and don’t forget Father’s Day cards to go with those gifts for the men in your life!

For the tech-obsessed

For the cool, casual type
