Father's Day Gift Ideas from Tiny Tags and Dave Maffei

father's day gift ideas from tiny tags and david maffei


We love our Dads but shopping for them isn't always easy. Whether it's your partner, brother or your own Dad, here is our list of tried and true Father's Day gift and activity ideas. Plus, we got a little help from All-Star Dad, Dave Maffei. Dave is the founder of Halfsies Cookie Company and Bean and Georgie's dad.

 Here are some of Dave's favorite things! 

1. Facial Wash

This facial wash from Kiehl's is an efficient and invigorating face wash for men. Paraben-free & Alcohol-free. 

2. Comfy Sweats

These Champion Sweats track-inspired sweats are his fave "comfy groutfit" (a 'groutfit' is a term that refers to an outfit made entirely of grey clothing). 

3. House Slippers

These Ugg Scuff Slippers are faves of Dave's because they are super comfy and "look amazing"!

4. Cooling Water Bottle

This cooling water bottle by RTIC sold on Amazon water bottle keeps your drink cold for days (Dave fills his with ice and lemons).  

5.Cookie by Halfsies! 

And of course, Dave's own Halfsies Cookie Company, an enterprise he runs with his superstar wife, Heather Muir, is also a sweet gift idea. And to make this even sweeter, Tiny Tags customers can use code “tinytags” at checkout for 15% off the Halfsies Sampler

Thanks for your picks Dave! 


Need more inspiration? As a team of women at Tiny Tags, if we're being completely honest, we've had some pretty big fails over the years when it comes to gifts for dad! But, we have learned from our mistakes and are here to help you get your husband (brother, dad!) a gift he will genuinely love for Father's Day. We have a little something for everyone and every budget. Here are a few of our faves - and we got you some deals on a few of them too (you're welcome!). 

1. DIY Gifts

Our Founder and CEO, Melissa, always says her favorite gift from her kids and husband is a journal they write in for her every year. This is a great idea for dad too! It’s so sweet to see the progression of crayon drawings to writing. Other easy and (mostly) free ideas: print out some photos of him and the kids (bonus if you can frame some), put some candy in a jar on his desk, and anything sweet and meaningful handmade by the kiddos. Check out this journal to get you started.


Started as a shoe company, SWIMS has now expanded to apparel and accessories. SWIMS reinvents classics that are smart, elegant, and weather friendly. They even have shoes that are machine washable and waterproof! Tiny Tags customers can use code ‘DAD20’ to save 20% until Father's Day.

3. Therabody massage gun

Whether he’s an athlete or just in need of some stress release, the Therabody massage gun makes a great gift. Every guy (ok, every person) loves these!

4. Make your own hot sauce

We’ve yet to meet a dad that doesn’t love hot sauce! With this kit he can make his own custom sauce. Or he can take an online class and do it virtually!

5. Meat Thermometer

While it’s maybe not the most exciting gift ever, a new meat thermometer will get used all summer long (and longer!). Go the traditional route, or try one that connects to an app on his phone so he can monitor the food without having to stand next to the grill. 

6. Johnnie-O Apparel

Johnnie-O founder John O'Donnell coined the term “West Coast Prep”, which feels like the perfect term to describe their east-meets-west-coast style. Any dad will look great in their collection! Tiny Tags customers can use code 'TinyTags15' to save 15% off their purchase until June 22nd.

7. Solo Stove

On the off-chance that he doesn’t already have one of these, Solo Stoves are a game changer! A great gift for dad that will really benefit the whole family (win win!). Solo Stoves allow you to sit outside and enjoy the fire, without smelling like one for days afterwards. We’re not sure how the technology works, but they are worth every penny.
