Father’s Day is quickly approaching, which may mean a sense of panic if you’re trying to find that perfect gift for your dad or husband. I’m totally a fan of DIY gifts, especially those that involve the kiddos. However, I’m also a MEGA fan of sporting merchandise from your favorite fandoms! Before you reach for another basic tie, consider a gift you know he’ll appreciate from a series, movie, or book that he loves! If you’ve got s father in your life who enjoys super heroes, Star Wars, or other fandoms, check out some of these cool ideas to let the dad in your life shine in all of his nerdy glory.

For the well-dressed dad, why not get him some subtle and classy fandom-related cufflinks this Father’s Day? These Millennium Falcon Star Wars cufflinks are da bomb.com, in my humble opinion. (For a more traditional, specifically “Father’s Day” themed gift, check out these Darth Vader father gift ideas from Amazon.)
Okay. Not only is this a reference to The Walking Dead (obviously), but parenting sure makes me feel like a zombie some days. Can I get an amen?!
Umm, okay. These clocks are insanely awesome. You can get one for almost any fandom your main man favors– Star Wars, DC, Marvel, even The Beatles. These would make a super cool conversation piece in a man cave, den, home office, or work space. Heck, I kind of want one for my office too! (Do you think I can find one in pink? 😉 )
I mean, every kid wants to be dad’s favorite, right? Let your siblings know that you actually are the favorite for Father’s Day this year. (I know this one isn’t fandom-related, but was too good not to include.)
The only way you should buy a tie for Father’s Day is if it relates to some awesome book, TV show, or movie! If you know Dad’s Hogwarts House, check out these awesome Hogwarts House ties! You can choose from Gryffindor, Slytherin, Ravenclaw, and Hufflepuff. Obviously.
Is your dad or husband a fan of How I Met Your Mother? Let him know how Legend–wait for it…–Dary you think he is! I like shirts like this that give a nod to a fandom without being over-the-top. Bonus point if he wears it under a suit!
Got a dad who loves coffee and LOTR? Help him express his love for his morning cuppa joe with this Gollum-inspired mug.
If you know a first-time dad who loves gaming, get this matching t shirt and onesie for him and his mini! You can also find these for multiple children– Players 1, 2, 3– you get it.
Help Dad tell time with a nod to his favorite Saiyan. I love how simple and classy this watch looks while still definitely referencing the popular anime Dragon Ball Z. My hubby loves this show! (For more anime-themed gifts from all kinds of shows, check out these t shirts from Amazon.com. Or hit me up personally. I would love to talk anime with you!)
Everything Is Awesome! Every thing is cool when you’re part of– this unique Lego family portrait from MyLegoBox on Etsy. You can choose to add names and general appearance requests as well.
This touch-operated color-changing light would look sick in a home office– or as a night light in a cool baby’s nursery! You can also find lamps in the same style for Yoda, the Millennial Falcon, and other references.
If you’ve got a hubby who’s just an all-around nerd, maybe these throw pillows are for you! I want these. (Except in our relationship, I’m the nerdy one…)
And honestly, these ideas are just the tip of the iceberg. If your dad or husband is a fan of almost any popular series, Amazon has so many options for cool and useful gifts your fan will love!
