PhotoFather’s Day (Sunday, June 19) is fast approaching, which means you may have begun to think about what type of gift to get the dad in your life.

Dads can be tough to shop for. Not only are they the first to insist that they don't need or want anything, it can be nearly impossible to find a gift that hasn't already been given. 

Tracking down a gift that is both useful and uniquely suited to dad's interests can be a challenge, but this list may help.

Five unique gifts

If you’re looking to skip the tie in favor of something a little more unique, check out these gifts.

  • Zus Car Charger + Locator. Got a forgetful father? If so, you might have heard the phrase, “Where did I park the car” a time or two. Help him remember with ZUS: a handy little device that plugs into your car and automatically remembers where you’ve parked. It can let you know right from the ZUS app, no cell signal required. 
  • Craft Beer Club. Beer lovers might enjoy receiving a monthly selection of craft brews from around the country, and Craft Beer Club can do just that. The company will send a dozen, craft beers from independent brewers right to dad’s door each month. There’s no membership fee, and you can cancel at any time. 
  • KettlePizza grill insert. If summer evenings often find the paternal force in your life sidled up to a grill, chances are he’d be interested in KettlePizza. This grill insert makes it possible for pops to cook up a real wood fired pizza using only his charcoal kettle grill. The stainless steel sleeve installs between the grill top and bottom and works to solve the problem of overcooked bottoms and undercooked tops.
  • Paracord pod EDC kit. The outdoorsy dad might appreciate an EDC (everyday carry) kit stocked with over 16 useful outdoor tools, including a wiresaw, a nameplate, a screw key set, and a peanut lighter. With this compact kit, he’ll have exactly the item he needs whether he finds himself camping, fishing, or hiking. 
  • Swingbyte 2 Golf Swing Analyzer. Golf enthusiasts looking to improve their swing might find an ally in this piece of technology. Simply hook Swingbyte to your club, and you’ll get an analysis of your swing on your smartphone or tablet. The product is even slightly discounted for Father’s Day.
