20 Unexpected Father's Day Gift Ideas

ToteBag Factory |


As Father’s Day is approaching, many of us have already started the hunt for the perfect gift. This is the ideal time to show your dad not only that you appreciate him but also that you truly know him. After the pandemic in 2022 everyone started new hobbies to keep themselves busy. Therefore this father’s day will be a great opportunity to support and encourage your father or partner's hobbies.

So, let his hobbies guide you in selecting a present. If he is a golf or bowling enthusiast, pick out something that he can use to make the game more enjoyable. Also, you can try to pinpoint what he needs. A deluxe briefcase, for example, can help him carry all the important documents and daily work items. The secret to the perfect Father’s Day gift is to combine utility with esthetics.

1. First Father’s Day Gift



This is the perfect gift for a new dad! While the child might be a bit too young to celebrate the first Father's Day, other people can step up and ensure a wonderful surprise. An adorable white onesie with a spot-on message on the baby-s behalf is certainly an unexpected gift! Moreover, you can purchase a customized T-shirt for the father’s size to match their outfit together. You will take the loveliest photographs this way.


2. Clear Backpack


An ideal father’s day gift for the ones who love going to the stadium for live games. It is all the more appropriate since this favorite free-time activity is becoming an option again, as restrictions continue to ease nationwide. Having a transparent backpack will make the bag-check go much faster. You can also keep in mind that you can custom print on even transparent bags to specialize them. Have your father’s favorite team printed on the bag to support him!

Our product comes in two color options, dark and light. Also, the model has a front zippered pocket to store smaller items that might need easy access. What is more, the shoulder straps are adjustable for optimal comfort to the wearer.

3. Golf Bag Tag and Tee Holder



If your dad is thinking about picking up golf, or sports in general, this unexpected Father’s day gift might be the final nudge he needs. The bag tags that also act as tee holders are super practical and very cool. The black leather creates a striking and elegant contrast against the white tees. Also, you can easily personalize the item however you like. We believe he will be the coolest father in the golf club with his kids supporting him like this.

4. Cool Cyber Backpack

After the pandemic, everyone tends to start to have new hobbies to keep them busy. We believe cooking and baking was the popular one since all the ingredients and essentials were already home. If your dad or partner was one of the new cooks, it is time to make it official in 2022.

With professional chef knives, you will support their hobbies and also encourage them to practice more with their cooking skills.

The mini duffle bag is available in several color combinations: royal/black, red/black, gold/black. Pick your favorite!

We have designed our product to be resilient and versatile, so we have added both top and side handles for increased comfort while carrying it. Also, besides the main compartment, there is a zippered front pocket and one on the inside to separate the items to which easier access is needed.
