Gifts For A Dad Who Wants Nothing

Author: Michelle Richards   Date Posted:12 July 2022 

The Best Online Gift Ideas Dad Will Love

If your dad is one of those people who seem to have everything they could possibly want, finding the perfect gift can be a daunting task - especially for an important gift occasion like Father’s Day, his birthday, or Christmas. 


It's important to remember that even though he says he doesn’t want anything, and it may seem like he doesn't need anything, there is sure to be something that he would love to receive as a gift. The key is to think about what that might be and find the perfect present for him.


Whatever you do, don't give up on buying gifts for dad who wants nothing just because he seems impossible to shop for! It’s tempting to wait for inspiration, but then you risk leaving it until the last minute and running out of time. With a little thought and creativity, you can find the perfect present online for even the most challenging dads out there. 


What do you get a minimalist dad?

Many dads insist they don't need anything when it comes to gifts. If you're shopping for a minimalist father who doesn't like extra stuff that clutters up his home, who doesn’t feel comfortable with you spending your money on expensive presents, or just simply feels a gift on Father’s Day is unnecessary, it can be tough to know what to get him if you still want to show your appreciation for all that he does.


If that sounds like your dad, then we have suggestions for what you can buy your minimalist dad who wants nothing and still make him feel loved.


  1. His favourite bottle of wine
  2. Fishing or whale watching boat tour
  3. Tickets to his favourite sports game
  4. Pay for someone to mow his lawn
  5. A fantastic gift hamper for men


What should I get my dad with no hobbies?

Choosing a hobby-related gift is usually our go-to when looking for gifts for a dad who wants nothing, but what do you buy if your dad has no hobbies? Buying clothes is usually too much effort (and he probably won’t like it anyway). One option is to get him something practical you know he will use and appreciate. Useful gifts for dad could be something like a new BBQ tool set or a nice wallet. If you're not sure what he would like, you could consider getting him a gift card so he can choose his own present. 


Our favourite idea for a good gift for a dad who wants nothing is to surprise him with gourmet food and wine. Even dads with no hobbies still love good food! You can play it safe and choose a beer and snacks hamper, or you can expand his horizons with luxury treats to impress. Buying something different that he’s never had before makes for a fun experience.
