Father’s Day is almost here! If you are looking for a unique gift for the great dad in your life check out your local Salvation Army Thrift Store. As someone who mostly hunts for women’s items I thought it might be a good idea to take a look for dad. I found so many great pieces and hopefully it will provide you with a little Father’s Day inspiration.
How to thrift great Father’s Day gifts:
As with all thrift store visits, make sure to go with a plan. Have some ideas of what you are looking for, I always have a list in my phone. With a plan it will help you look for specific items and when you find one it will feel like a success! Without the plan you might look around a bit and not see anything, leaving empty handed. For this article I made a list of what I was looking to purchase. I wanted a bowl as a catch all for keys or change, a secondhand wallet worn in, a board for charcuterie and a tie, I was able to find everything in one trip! With the list I knew what sections to search in and easily found what I was looking for.
A charcuterie board is perfect for Father’s Day. You could use this for meat and cheese or a pancake brunch or all of your favorite snacks.
A bowl is perfect for all the items in dads pockets! A place by the door for keys, a wallet or maybe some change.
Do dads still wear ties? I figured some dads may want to dress up for Zoom meetings or when they go back to the office or when parties open up want to get dressed up.
A nice leather wallet is a keepsake. This one was perfectly broken in and although secondhand would still make a beautiful gift.
Do you want something different for you dad? Here are some more ideas you could thrift from the Salvation Army Thrift Store.
- Board game
- Hat for summer

The fun part about the thrift store is so many different people donate the items you can find are endless!
