Father's Day Gift Ideas From Home Depot Dads


Father’s Day is fast approaching; the gifts selection for dad’s day at The Home Depot is endless. I asked a few of my fellow associates, who are all dads; if they could choose anything from our Home Depot aisles, to receive as a father’s day gift, what would it be?


There was little hesitation for most of my work mates….two plumbing associate dads said in unisons, “power tools”!  When I fine-tuned their answer it was a cordless drill for both of them!



The stores “At Home Service Specialist”, Charles, also wants a drill but specifically a combo drill kit by Rigid, he had stars in his eyes as he talked about the beautiful pair of power tools! “What a sweet deal” he said, he even printed me up the on-line discretion page…..just in case one of his kids should happen to come through the store, and ask me directly what their dad wants for father’s day!



Mike the department head of electrical, without hesitation went right to the garden aisle where the weed whackers are stocked, and picked up the top of the line, commercial grade Echo trimmer….He definitely, really wants this!



 I asked my question about: a dads dream gift, to one of the hardest working fathers in the garden department; Donal, he came right down off the ladder he was working on to show me the grill he wants! I agreed with him, it is a great selection, a Weber grill!  Donal then he said he would be right back…he proceeded to gather all the tools and accessories that would make his dream grill complete!


The one dad that took his time on the answer to my question, in fact I asked him before my lunch break, and when I came back from my lunch break he was still undecided…he asked for a few more minutes.



Mike the M.E.T supervisor in the store, came back with his selection, a DremelTool, and the accessory kit with all the bits and pieces.

“I would love to have this, so I can build some special birdhouses with my kids”. Awe, he took the time to choose a gift that he would ultimately, spend time with his kids, sweet dad!


The Home Depot has so, so many gift options for father’s day, we are the mecca of choices for a dads dream gift! 

Stop by your local Home Depot, if you need a gift suggestion just ask one of the dads in an orange apron, they have great ideas and suggestions for you….and for themselves!

There is always the option of a Home Depot gift card for is a great gift when he opens it, and then again when he spends it!

Fathers Day Gift Ideas From Home Depot Dads: Part 2

Father’s Day Gift Suggestion from Dads in the Aisles:

I continued to ask the question of my co-worker Dads: What would like for Fathers Day from the aisle of our Home Depot?

John, who works in the hardware department, and who is the Captain of the Kids Workshops in our store, has simple request “ I would like a utility tool cart, this way I can put all the tools I need together for a project, cart them to wherever I am working and have everything close at hand”.


This is a great suggestion, and a wise choice coming from the man who gathers all the tools and materials for the,100 plus children, that attend his workshop monthly.



Who would have guessed the coolest dad in our Home Depot would request an air- conditioner for his father’s day dream gift?

Jerry: an Appliance Specialist, a mix master at the paint desk, and he also dances through the plumbing department giving out great advice and leaving everyone he helps with a smile on their face: said, “LG 6000 BTUs this is the baby I want, it has remote control!”  Perfect to come home to after a long day on the course, or in the aisles!....but Jerry you are already so cool!


John, a guru, and Electrical Specialist, is always running here and there to help someone solve an electrical problem, busy, busy, it is no wonder why he choose the gift he did.

The  'Timemaster' a dual blade lawn mower by Toro; yes this is an impressive machine... And with the broad 30 inch cutting path, he will be able to mow his lawn faster and easier, and be off to help someone who needs his electrical expertise!

Homer the most sought after hardware associate in the building, who has been answering customers questions and concerns for over 21 years in the Home Depot aisles, knows  exactly what he wants for father’s day.

“This is a great deal, two battery packs, a charger, a great DeWalt 20 amp cordless grill, and a carrying case, this is all I want.

I asked Homer “With everything that is in this store, and all the tools you advice on and sell all day, this is what you picked?

“Yes, this is what I would use the most, I would like own this drill, and this is a great gift”!


Father’s day is a day to give dad what he wants or needs: a gift that will make his life more convenient and easy, or comfortable and cool, or make tasks easier and faster, or a gift that is practical that he will value and use often.

Time is the greatest gift of all, give your dad some time…. pick up a Home Depot Gift card for  Father’s Day, and bring him to the local Home Depot, spend the time,  walk the aisles, let him choose his own gift.


Whether he picks up a drill, a mower or an air-conditioned, it is your time together he will appreciate and enjoy the most, the gift he chooses is just a bonus!
