Father’s Day is a time to show Dad appreciation for all he does, big and small. This year, get him something more exciting than the traditional tie, golf gear or barbecue accessories.

In general, dads can never have enough tools, and depending on your dad’s personality and what he likes to do, there's always something that will rev his engine. This tool guide will give you the insight you need to get him something that he'll truly appreciate this Father's Day.

For the tech lover:

Give him something that will keep the lawn looking great and save him time. With a Husqvarna Automower® robotic lawn mower, he can sit back, sip his favorite beverage and watch it in wonder! He won't have to lift a finger all summer long to get a lawn that's the envy of the neighborhood, plus he can brag about the robot mower to the guys. The Automower 115H already includes professional installation, so Dad can take all the credit without any of the work.

For the green guy:

Does Dad have a thing for Mother Nature? If he wants to go green while keeping his green lawn looking great, consider gifting him a battery-powered weed trimmer. They are strong, remarkably silent and nearly vibration-free. Keep in mind when shopping, curved shaft trimmers are lighter and great for trimming smaller lawns and flowerbeds. Straight shaft trimmers with bevel gears are designed for bigger jobs and can reach under hedges, bushes and fences.

For the power hungry:

If Dad likes power, nothing is more exciting than a brand-new chainsaw. Consider getting him an easy-to-start and simple-to-use smart chainsaw that is perfect for any season. The all-new Husqvarna 130 chainsaw is gas-powered yet designed for low fuel consumption. It is ideal for light tasks like shrub pruning, tree felling or cutting firewood.

For the new homeowner:

If he just moved into a new home, he's probably building up his tool collection. Basic essentials are sure to be appreciated. Consider building him a toolbox with all the basics needed for minor household tasks. A hammer, screwdrivers, wrenches, a tape measure, nails and screws will come in handy for years to come. Want to go bigger? Get him a ladder or rechargeable drill.

For the laid-back cruiser:

If your dad has a larger yard and likes to get the job done himself, consider going big and gifting him a riding lawn mower or lawn tractor to cruise through his yard work. When choosing a rider, be sure to select a versatile model with the right-sized cutting deck. Husqvarna riding lawn mowers are equipped with the ability to side discharge, mulch or bag and can be fitted with a variety of accessories from a trailer to a spreader to a two-stage snow blower.

For the neat freak:

For the dad who is always taking care of messes, consider a leaf blower that will allow him to power through any job. Handheld leaf blowers are typically lightweight and easier to maneuver into tight spaces, making them ideal for light-duty yard projects. Backpack leaf blowers provide the extra power and air speed to clear leaves, sand, gravel and other debris.

For the gadget guy:

There is no shortage of great gadgets for Dad this Father's Day. From multi-use tools that fit right in his pocket to laser stud finders that make it easy to find studs in the wall, you can't go wrong with gadget gifts. For the outdoors, consider gifting him a garden camera so that he can see all the critters that come into the yard day and night.

Finding the right gift for your dad this Father’s Day doesn’t have to be a shot in the dark. From gadget guys to power lovers, there’s a tool out there for every dad.
