Nordstrom

  • If you're searching for Father's Day gift ideas, you've come to the right place.
  • Nordstrom is home to many cool and unique dad-approved gifts, from small Bluetooth speakers with big noise to cologne shaped like old-school apothecary jars that smells like a bonafide jazz club.
  • Still looking for unique gift ideas for dad? You can find more Father's Day 2019 gift inspiration here.

Father's Day is fast approaching on Sunday, June 16, and the benefit of doing your shopping for the old man now rather than the day before is that you can afford to browse a bit. Take your time and meander. It's also a big perk that your shopping can coincide with the big Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale.

Below, we've rounded up 31 of the best gifts for dads currently available at Nordstrom, so you can streamline your process without compromising on an awesome gift.

Most of Nordstrom's offerings are already price matched, but its free shipping, easy returns, rewards, and well-regarded customer service might make it worth an extra few dollars for convenience's sake if it's a slim difference.
