Father's Day Gift Ideas
Dads are always tough to shop for. When you ask what they want they often say something non-specific, or the classic, “for my kids to be happy.” And that’s probably all they do want.
But you still want to show your dad that you care and neither of those answers are very helpful in narrowing things down. So we’ve come up with this handy list of 10 gifts for dad this Father’s Day.
A classic man cave option, the Viper Shot King Steel Tip Dartboard is a great dartboard for anyone new to the game. Darts is an iconic pastime and the Shot King sisal dartboard comes with everything your dad will need to start playing.
Darts is a great game to play both by yourself and with friends. And since the Shot King comes with two sets of starter darts, it's the perfect way to spend some time with your dad this Father’s Day.

Overall, a classic sisal dartboard is the perfect addition to any man cave, garage, or game room. With this gift, not only will you be giving your dad hours of fun, but you might be giving him a new lifelong hobby.
Building off of the previous recommendation, next up is our Viper Blitz Tungsten Steel Tip Dart Set. The best darts in the world are made out of tungsten and this is one of our most popular sets. Tungsten darts are thinner than other darts, which means it’s easier to throw tight groupings for higher scores.
Tungsten is also one of the most durable metals in the world. So if your dad ever complains about how they don’t make things like they used to, you won’t need to worry about that when you get him a new set of tungsten darts.
The Viper Blitz 95% Tungsten dart set comes with three darts, a case, and spare accessories, everything your dad will need to keep playing. This is a great gift for any darter, whether they are new or a veteran.
Another popular dartboard is the Fat Cat Mercury Electronic Dartboard. With an electronic dartboard, all of the scoring is automatic and the games are pre-programmed so there is no learning curve.
It’s the perfect gift for someone new to the game, but the advanced features and large selection of games makes it perfect for veteran players too. The Mercury dart board supports up to 8 player multiplayer too, so the entire family can celebrate Father’s Day together.
Another bonus of using an electronic dartboard instead of a steel tip dartboard is that they use soft tip darts. These are safer than steel tip darts since they use plastic tips. So if there are still some younger kids in the house, the Mercury electronic dartboard is a great way to balance fun and safety.
Since we recommended a set of steel tip darts, we have to recommend a good set of soft tip darts as well, especially since you can’t use steel tip darts on an electronic dartboard.
The Viper Diamond Darts are one of our most popular sets of soft tip darts. Just like the Blitz darts, these are made out of tungsten and built to last. You might’ve noticed that these darts are a different tungsten percentage and might be wondering if one is better than the other.
Well you don’t need to worry, the percentage of tungsten is a reflection of density, not quality. Lower percentages are less dense and therefore lighter and soft tip darts are often made at lower weights than steel tip darts. This is because most electronic dartboards recommend a maximum weight of 20 grams.
The Viper Diamond 90% Tungsten dart set also comes with three darts, a case, and spare accessories. Again, this is everything your dad will need to keep playing and is a perfect gift, whether he is new or a pro.
Father’s Day is a day for dads to kick back and relax and it never hurts to do that with a drink in hand, so why not treat your dad with a BenShot drinking glass?
We offer a wide variety of these popular glasses. This ranges from the classic BenShot glass embedded with a real bullet, to miniature billiard balls, golf balls, broadhead arrows, and, of course, a miniature dart.
For a more patriotic option, there are also the BenShot ‘Merica glasses, which are printed with an American flag. The BenShot glasses come in 16 and 11 ounce options and are the perfect compliment to any dad’s drink of choice.
A popular, yet more affordable option for newer dart players, is the Casemaster Sentry Dart Case and Viper Dart Set. This package is exclusive to our website and comes with six darts, as well as spare tips, flights, and shafts.
Each package will give your dad a set of backup darts and any accessories he could need to keep his darts in top shape. They also ensure that if he is in the mood for a game he will always have a set ready for whoever he is up against.
This package comes in three different color options, red, blue, and green.
If your dad is the kind of guy who is always up for a hand of cards, then the Fat Cat 500 Count Texas Hold’Em Poker Chip Set would be the perfect gift. As the name says, this set comes with 500 poker chips in five different colors/values.
This is another gift that the whole family can take advantage of. Texas Hold’Em is a fun game that can provide hours of fun, and in case anyone in the family needs a refresher on the rules we have a handy How to Play article here.

This set comes in a carrying case that's packed with everything you’ll need to play: cards, a big blind, little blind, and dealer button. Your dad will be able to bring his new poker set anywhere, perfect for a night out with friends, or a night in with family.
If your dad is a fan of billiards and loves to show off his patriotic spirit, then the Viper Desperado Freedom Cue is the perfect gift for him this Father’s Day. This maple wood cue is laser engraved with a bald eagle, comes in a beautiful dark brown color, and features a 100% genuine leather wrap.
The design is made to stand out and catch the eye of anyone who sees it, but even more importantly, it’s built to feel good as it’s used. It’s the perfect gift for any dad who likes to make frequent trips to the pool hall.
The Desperado Freedom Cue comes in four different weights, 18, 19, 20, or 21 ounces, so you can customize the weight to your dad’s preference. If you’re unsure of what your dad wants, 19 ounces is a very popular cue weight.
If your dad is a fan of the more natural wood look, then check out the Viper Naturals Zebrawood Cue. The butt of this cue is made from, you guessed it, Zebrawood. Unlike the Freedom cue, the Naturals Zebrawood cue, true to its name, keeps things natural and doesn’t come with any special engravings.
What it does come with is a beautiful natural wood grain texture that is simple yet elegant, and sure to be the talk of any pool hall. Like the Desperado cue, the Naturals cue comes in 18, 19, 20, or 21 ounces so you can tailor the weight to your dad’s preference.
Another piece of advice about cue weights: lower cue weights will give your dad more control over his shots, while heavier weights will make it easier to put more force into the ball.
If you really want to treat your dad this year, then you can go all out with the Fat Cat Trueshot 6’ Folding Pool Table. This compact pool table makes the perfect addition to any game room.
As an added perk it’s so easy to set up that when your dad says he doesn’t need the instructions, he'll actually mean it! Simply unfold the legs and secure them in place and you’re ready to start playing. It’s just as easy to put away, making it perfect for smaller spaces. Simply fold the legs and prop it against the wall to get your room back.
The Trueshot billiard table comes with two cues, billiard balls, and a triangle, so no need to order anything extra. If you want to give your dad the ultimate gift this father’s day, then the Trueshot pool table is it.
As a small business, we here at GLD Products recognize how important family is and while we would love for you to hop over to our store and pick up all of these items, it is important to keep in mind that at the end of the day, being together as a family is what is most important.
That being said, we hope that this list has given you some inspiration on a great gift for your dad and that you have a great Father’s day!
