15 Father’s Day Gift Ideas Using Your DFCUPerks App

Today’s post is sponsored by DFCU Financial. Thank you for supporting the brands that support Good Life Detroit! You can read our disclosure policy here.

Father’s Day is right around the corner and that means it’s time to put your thinking cap on and find the perfect gift for your loved one. Shopping for men can be challenging sometimes, especially when it comes to gift shopping.

My dad, for instance, has a lot of cool gadgets and is very fashionable. I often struggle with what to get him because I’m not sure if he already has the item or what type of clothing he’d like.

Travis, on the other hand, is pretty laid back. Yet, I still have a hard time finding the right gift for him because I want to make sure the gift is something he would enjoy.

To avoid this dilemma, I decided to start my Father’s Day gift shopping a little early this year. I created a list of fun gift ideas to help you out, too!


What makes my Father’s Day gift list so special is each gift idea features a great deal for you! By using my DFCUPerks app, I researched where to find the best Father’s Day gift ideas in Detroit and the metro area!
