It’s that time of year again. You’re racking your brain as to what you should get your old man. A neck tie again? That set of coasters your mom loves at Pottery Barn? You don’t have time to be thinking about such things. That’s why we’ve got you covered! We’ve put together a list of 10 top-notch Father’s Day gift ideas inspired by our favorite celebrity daddys. And to make things as simple as possible for you, we’ve linked up each gift with the type of dad it’s best suited for.
Chris Martin a.k.a “The Intellectual Dad”

Chris Martin, Coldplay frontman and father to Apple and Moses, comes across as one smart dude; from his elegant piano arrangements to his heartfelt ballads, it’s quite clear that Martin enjoys himself some deep thoughts. So what better way to crank out those brainy lyrics that a sweet old-meets-new typewriter. This USB typewriter, which you can can for $799, hooks up to your tablet device and allows you to go all old-school typewriter while still retaining your new-age flair.
Jay-Z a.k.a. “The High-Rollin’ Dad”

There are some dads, like the new father to Blue Ivy, Jay-Z, that flat-out roll in style. You know who we mean: those dudes like Jay that carry around wads of cash who like to bust it out at fancy restaurants looking all slick. If this is your pops, he needs an exquisite money clip. And there’s nothing finer than one of the Gucci variety. A black leather one will run you around $180 but it’s worth every penny.
David Beckham a.k.a. “The Athletic Dad”

Face it, sometimes your dad, like our favorite soccer star dad, David Beckham, is so freakishly athletic that even by the time you’re a full-grown adult, he’s still gonna whoop you in a run and smash your ego in an arm-wrestling march. Well, one way to tame this beast is by getting him on the links. That’s right, it’s time this freak of nature gets on the golf course. And the best way to get him started (aside from clubs, of course) is a solid pair of golf shoes. These babies from Nike, the Air Range WP, run $130, and are not only supportive, but are also quite stylish if you ask us.
Brad Pitt a.k.a. “The Outdoorsy Dad”

We admittedly don’t truly know if Brad Pitt, the father to a boatload of children with Angelina, is the outdoorsy type, but with that beard he’s been recently sporting the man could fight off an entire pack of brown bears without breaking a sweat. As such this outdoorsman is going to need to be properly dressed. We suggest this waterproof Ketchikan jacket from Carhartt. And at only $180 you’ll get a trusted product without breaking the bank.
Johnny Depp a.k.a. “The Dad Who Thinks He’s A Rocker”

Sure, Johnny Depp has mad acting skills. But recently the Hollywood mainstay, whose always a daddy, has been testing out his musical chops; check his recent performance with The Black Keys at the VMA’s. This wannabe-rocker dad is naturally going to need a means by which he can blast his tune and rock out on his (air) guitar. We think the Big Jambox from Jawbone is your best bet.
Will Smith a.k.a. “The Middle-Aged Photographer Dad”

We see Will Smith, proud papa of Jaden and Willow, walking the red carpet and getting his picture taken like it’s his job — well, it kind of is. But what about when he’s at home? We all know, with a teenager, Will’s the go-to man on family vacations to snap pictures. A closet-photographer like Smith needs a top-tier camera.
Our choice is the Sony Alpha NEX-F3 Digital Camera. At nearly $600 it’s a bit pricy, but one of the best on the market.
Lil Wayne a.k.a. “The Swearing Pops”

Everyone knows that dad that flips the bird while he’s driving and can’t go five minutes without swearing. Based on his racy lyrics, we’d have to think rapper/dad Lil Wayne is this guy. What better way to honor his fresh mouth than this gag-gift-of-sorts. The “F-Bomb” paperweight is not only hilarious but also quite useful: after all, just think of all the fan mail Wayne could use this to help organize.
Barack Obama a.k.a. “The Traveling Dad”

If you know a dad like President Obama, the sort who is traveling across the globe on a daily basis, a classy, yet efficient travel bag is a must. We’ve uncovered a gem: this leather excursion duffle bag from RedEnvelope is canvas line and bustling with pockets. And for that dad who wants to know which bag is his, you can personalize it with up to three characters.
Jack Black a.k.a. “The Beer-Drinking Dad”

Dads like to drink beer — It’s a known fact. Jack Black, who has to be the coolest dad alive, sports a beer belly like it’s going out of style. So what better gift to get the dad that lives for a good brew than the Krups BeerTender. This home-friendly tap gets beer fresh for up to 30 days and has a built-in CO2 dispense to keep the pour flowing perfectly every time.
Chris Hemsworth a.k.a. “The Young, Hip Dad”

Young dads, like actor Chris Hemsworth, may have a little one to tote around, but that doesn’t mean they don’t still want to look as stylish as ever. We recommend a classic pair of Ray-Ban Wayfarer sunglasses for the young, newbie dad. They’re not only slick-looking, but they’ll be sure to protect dad’s young, precious eyes so he doesn’t become that old man who has to squint every time his dad calls him from afar.Tags :
