Look, some gifts are just so hokey you’d cringe even giving it to him. But others straddle that fine line between beautifully sentimental and and just plain cheesy. And a very fine line it is. Which means please, do not get him a shirt/mug/bottle/card that pays tribute to his undisputed status as the world’s best dad. The best Father’s Day gifts recognize what makes him unique, cater to his specific tastes and needs, and in this case, melt his heart. A little. Or a lot. These are the best sentimental gifts for dad for Father’s Day.
