The 30 best gifts for stepdads this Father’s Day 2022

Courtesy of the retailer

Shopping for in-laws can be very stressful. Shopping for your stepdad, in particular, can seem like the ultimate test of how much you care about his granddaughter (or son). After all, he’s your partner’s father, so it’s important to think about the gifts you give, especially on Father’s Day. Depending on your relationship with him, you want to show him that you care about him, but not come across as too sentimental. Your gifts should be considered without giving the impression of being “sustainable”.

Like shopping for your own dad or godfather on Father’s Day, think about what type of person your stepdad is. How does he spend most of his free time and what brings him joy? Is he a gardener, home theater enthusiast, outdoor enthusiast, or someone who spends weekends tinkering in his tool shed? Consider a general type of gift that makes sense based on your hobbies, then buy an “elevated” version of that gift. Still not sure? We’ve done you the courtesy of rounding up some of the best Father’s Day gifts for stepdads, so you don’t have to.
