Best Father's Day Gift Ideas for Rural Dads

For the rural day who fixes everything…

Tools are a wonderful Father’s Day gift for every rural dad. What better way to show dad or your significant other that you appreciate all those times he fixes the cars and your leaky sink faucets? Reward him with a brand new state of the art tool like the Fenix TK20R V2.0 Rechargeable Flashlight.

I once underestimated the importance of a quality flashlight. My husband sold me, though, once he demonstrated the difference between a run-of-the-mill flashlight and a premium one like the Fenix TK20R V2.0 Rechargeable Flashlight. The difference is, well, like night and day! It has an extremely bright output at 3000 lumens and at the highest output, the TK20R V2.0 has a visibility range of 1558 ft. If you’ve ever had to work in a dim lit garage, look under the hood of a car, or needed to tend to a farm chore after dark, you will completely appreciate how very bright that is.

Rural dads that participate in outdoor activities like camping, ATV riding, or even neighborhood patrol will also appreciate this amazing tool. The Fenix TK20R has inner waterproofing, USB Type-C charging, an eco mode runtime of 48 hours, and impact resistance up to 4.9 feet. Trust us, this is a Father’s Day gift idea for rural dads that will absolutely “wow” and get plenty of use on and off the farm!

For the one-of-a-kind rural dad…

We all know our dads are truly one-of-a-kind, so why not gift them with a unique gift they’ll treasure for many years to come? Rush Order Tees is a family owned business that creates high-quality custom apparel that can be personalized with logos or artwork including t-shirts, hoodies, hats, outerwear and much more.

When they say high quality, they mean it. The products are impressive. Rush Order Tees also carries brands like Hanes, Under Armor, and American Apparel to personalize.

You can design your own logo, provide your artwork, or use one of Rush Order Tees templates to create an original piece for your rural dad. How cool would it be to gift custom outerwear with your farm name or logo? Or to create a t-shirt with one of your dad’s favorite sayings? You could even create a custom logo for your dad. Or use artwork that you already have (like we did with the Rural Mom logo pictured above). The possibilities are endless!

For the hard-working rural dad…

Work, chores, home repairs, parenting – the life of a rural dad is a busy one! He works hard and one of the best gift you can give is a bit of relief and relaxation! As you already know, at Rural Mom, we are CBD advocates for all its amazing properties, so naturally, we would include a top notch gift idea in our guide this year.

Joshua Tree CBD skin care products are excellent for helping to soothe aches and promote recovery. The CBD Recovery Salve + Arnica + Menthol is the ideal gift for the hard-working dad. This blend of hemp derived CBD with soothing Arnica extract and cooling menthol helps with soreness relief including inflammation from arthritis, tendonitis, and the general wear and tear of an active lifestyle. If you’re gifting this to your significant other, it’s also a terrific formula for massages – a great way to pamper him on his special day!

Additional products from Joshua Tree’s CBD product line include CBD Lip Balm (great for protecting and soothing lips from the outdoor elements), CBD Massage Lotion, and CBD Honey. The honey is lovely to use in coffee or tea or just straight from the spoon for a boost of relaxation and relief. Whatever you choose, it will be a welcome gift for your worn-out dad!

A few additional special Father’s Day gift ideas for rural dads we love:

  • Beer Bucket. -There are many different stores and websites that offer high quality beer buckets made out of galvanized steel. Many will even personalize the bucket. Or you can of course get creative and find or make your own bucket. Just fill it up with some ice and that special guy’s favorite six pack of beer. Beer buckets make a wonderful gift because they can be used again as a toting tool later.
  • Pocket Watch or Wrist Watch. – If you are tired of getting the men in your life the same old gift every year, then why not try to opt for something more practical yet thoughtful? A fancy or personalized pocket watch or wrist watch make perfect gifts for dad.
  • Gift Cards. – If you are still struggling to find the perfect Father’s Day gift, then gift cards always make a great choice. Especially for those men who are hard to shop for. Or if you need a last minute gift idea. Try getting a gift card for their favorite restaurant or store. You can even go a step further like pre-paying for an oil change or a tire alignment at the local auto store.
  • Shaving Kit. – Does your husband or father in law need a new razor? How about investing in a shaving kit? Or you can even include something like an engraved razor case or shaving brush. Some kits even include different scented essential oils and aftershave.
  • Movie Tickets. – Is there a movie that you recently saw that you think dad might also enjoy? Or maybe you know what his favorite movie is but are certain that he doesn’t own a copy. DVDS or blu-rays make a great Father’s Day gift. You can even get more creative with it and make a movie bucket with some popcorn or a few of his other favorite snacks.
  • Tickets To A Concert or Sporting Event. – Does your father have a favorite band, singer, or sport’s team? Why not try to find tickets to a concert or sporting event? Include them in a thoughtful Father’s Day card.
