Despite the fact that most dads are usually pretty easy going and happiest simply relaxing in a big chair with a frosty beverage watching their favorite TV program, Father’s Day is quite possibly the hardest gift giving day of the year. After all, what do you get a guy that just wants a little peace and quiet and maybe a hug? Another neck tie, gift certificate to the hardware store, or CD (yes, a compact disc because, of course, he still uses a CD player) are out of the question. Sure you could settle for more traditional gifts like shaving cream and socks, but that won’t win you major brownie points nor remind him why you’re his favorite child.
As the apple of your dad’s eye, your goal should be to give him something so special that he completely forgets all the bad stuff you did as a teenager or maybe even that you still haven’t moved out of his house. So this year choose something completely different and wow dad with a few cool threads to add to his wardrobe. There’s no question that he deserves more, so go ahead and go with a gift that is as unique as your beloved dad.

You’ll surely make Father’s Day the best day of the year when you gift one or more of these unique and fabulous t-shirts from our collection. And because we know that dads come in all sizes, please note that our t-shirts do too. We offer sizes from XS to 4XL.
This lively and colorful print portrays a young boy setting sail alone, ready for whatever obstacles may come his way. Painted in 1919, this beautiful Salvador Dali print is said to be symbolic of a child leaving home for the first time. The child is ready to find his own path in life and take on the challenges ahead. It also symbolizes the parents’ purpose in a child’s life, though they are not seen in the painting. The parents have done their job to raise the child to be independent and to head out in the world with the knowledge the parents have taught them. Salvador Dali believed that a father should raise his children well and teach them how to make smart choices, but once the child reaches adulthood, the father should take a passive approach. This is a great gift this Father’s Day, particularly if you are a recent graduate setting out on the next stage of your life.
What better way to let your dad know he’s truly out of this world, than with an all over print stellar space t-shirt! Whether he’s a space buff or simply just loves the look of a cool design, there’s no doubt he’ll truly enjoy wearing this extra comfortable t-shirt portraying interstellar space. The heliosphere is the space between the stars and full of cold particles in a magnetic field, which you gotta admit, would be a pretty cool place to hang out with dad and shoot the breeze. But since an all over print t-shirt most likely fits the budget a little easier than a rocket ship to outer space, we’re sure dad wouldn’t mind settling for this unique space tee.
Vincent van Gogh – “The Terrace Café On The Place Du Forum In Arles At Night Arles” (1888) Mens T-Shirt
Originally an oil painting by the Dutch artist, this piece was first entitled Coffeehouse. But yea, they just had to go with a name that was much harder to pronounce! Painted during the post-impressionism period, you can almost feel the energy that comes from the café at night as people settle in for a delicious cup of coffee al fresco. To this day visitors to Place du Forum can stand at the northeastern corner and see where van Gogh set up his easel. If your dad loves coffeehouses, this one is definitely a no-brainer.
Did somebody say pancakes? It’s hard to say no to a huge stack of pancakes dripping with butter and syrup. But if you have no idea how to make this breakfast of champions, or you’re afraid of burning them (remember last time?), don’t worry, you can still get dad the delicious stack of hearty pancakes he craves. As fun as it is comfortable, this t-shirt is always a big hit. So while breakfast in bed may be out of the question, you can still win dad over and make his day. If he’s a brunch guy, he’ll absolutely love this tee.
Next to actually creating a mix tape for dad, this all over print t-shirt of various mix tapes is the ultimate gift for any music lover. Who can forget the good ol’ days when mix tapes were the result of painstaking hours creating the perfect soundtrack? A combination of the hottest tracks and whatever mood a person was in, each mix tape had a story to tell. Remind dad of all those times he told you to turn your music down by giving him a t-shirt that he’ll love to wear. He’ll think of you every time he pulls this one out of his closet. For an extra fun gift, pair this t-shirt with an actual mix of songs for dad. Maybe go for the digital playlist this time…unless dad still uses a cassette player.
If dad’s the sporty type, than this short sleeve top is something he will want to wear every time he gets on his bike, goes for a jog, or heads out into his fishing boat. With UPF 50 protection, it’s the perfect tee to wear when the sun is blazing – both because it’s incredibly comfortable and protective. With bold, bright red and a spectacular marlin image, don’t be surprised when your father makes this his new favorite go-to t-shirt.
If there’s one thing that’s true about dads, they all seem to love astronauts and outer space. Maybe it’s the cool outfit, the whole no-gravity thing, or just the mystery of it all, but you truly can’t go wrong with getting dad an all over print t-shirt of the NASA Space Walk. He probably still remembers putting you on his legs and flying you around as you pretended you were in a space ship. Or listening to you as you told him your big dreams of becoming an astronaut when you grew up. Whether you accomplished that goal or not, your dad still loves you anyway, and he’ll absolutely love this tee.
If your dad is into avant-garde, then he’ll love this print from one of the most famous Russian artists and art theorists of the 20th century. This painting represents a constellation of color in space and geometry with incredible asceticism. Painted during the suprematism period, this print was sold for $60 million at auction to an anonymous buyer. It is the most expensive work in the history of Russian art, but you can give it to dad with a much better price tag. With bold, bright colors, this all over print goes with just about anything.
If your dad is anything like pretty much every other dad out there, then there’s a pretty good chance that the way to his heart is through his stomach. There’s also a pretty good chance he loves hamburgers and French fries. If that’s the case, then this all over print t-shirt is exactly what he wants in his wardrobe. Maybe his doctor has told him he needs to cut down on saturated fat, red meat, and trips to his favorite burger joint. With this t-shirt, he can have hamburgers and fries every day without gaining a pound or putting himself at risk for a heart attack. A perfect gift for the foodie father, this fast food t-shirt is sure to be a whopper, er, winner!
You know how your dad is always singing in the shower? Or the fact that he whistles nonstop whenever he’s working in the yard or the garage? Well, we’ve got just the thing for your music loving pop! This all over print t-shirt packed with Mozart’s sheet music notes, is everything he wants this year on his big day. If he’s really the musical type he may even try to belt out the notes or take it over to his trumpet to play the song printed on this all over print t-shirt. While we apologize in advance if that happens, we know that you’ll at least put a smile on his face when he unwraps this beauty. He’ll be extra surprised this year since you probably always get him piano socks. You’ll really outdo yourself this time.
