Best Bird Gifts for Dad
Comics About Birds
This hilarious book takes a look at the world through the eyes of Chicken the cockatiel and friends. Whilst everyone will enjoy the collection of funny comics, the book is especially relatable for bird owners and has clearly been created by someone that understands birds well. This 86 page hardback book costs less than $20 and makes an excellent birthday or father’s day gift for bird lovers.
Spoontiques Diner Birdhouse
Who doesn’t love a human-inspired bird box? Spoontiques are the go-to brand when it comes to novelty bird boxes with everything from a taco van to a sneaker-shaped design, all made from a durable resin. We think dads will love this American diner-themed bird house, but we recommend you browse through all of their listings.
Personalized Bird Box
If you like the idea of a bird box but would rather something a little more meaningful than the American diner, this personalized bird box from a seller on Etsy might be a better choice. The wooden bird box can be customized with both your name and your dad’s or grandad’s name to make it a special keepsake that can hang in the backyard.
Tiki Bird Hoodie
This tiki bird hoodie is a great gift to help your dad look good on those chilly days whilst still tying in with their passion for birds. The hoodie features a beautifully illustrated tropical bird in a design that’s fun and slightly quirky too. The hoodie is also available with a black, red, or grey background and there’s a zipper alternative too.
Bird Watching Binoculars
If your dad is someone that loves to watch the birds in his garden, this next gift will help him do that.
These Nikon Prostaff 3S binoculars are a great entry-level pair of binoculars for amateur birders as recommended by Audubon, a leading American non-profit organization dedicated to the conservation of birds. In their review, Audubon said these binoculars offered better clarity, brightness, and color rendition compared to others in the price category.
We also featured these in our guide to gifts for backyard bird watchers which is full of other gifts along the same line.
Stay Coo Mug
Your dad will be looking coo’ with this punny mug. The large handle mug is designed and printed in the USA with a fun pigeon design. It’s an 11oz ceramic coffee mug which is ideal for your dad to enjoy his morning coffee.
Personalized Pet Bird Print
If you’re buying a gift for a parrot owner or any other pet bird dad, this personalized portrait is will give them a huge smile when they open it. Send the Etsy store a photo of their pet and they’ll create one of these humorous pieces of bespoke artwork. The artwork will be printed on 175gsm fine art paper ready to be framed and hung where it will add a special touch to any room.
Owl Leather Journal
If your dad loves owls then this leather journal will make a great gift and keepsake. The 100-page leather journal contains blank pages that can be used as a simple notebook, sketchbook or travel diary. At 6″x8″, it’s small enough to carry in a jacket pocket and would be a great gift set when paired with a premium pen.
For anyone obsessed with owls, we have a huge guide with dedicated gifts for owl lovers.
‘Peckers’ Funny Tea Towel
When you tell dad you’ve bought him a peckers tea towel, he might have something different in mind. But this cheeky cotton tea towel featured 19 woodpeckers from across the world, each with tongue-in-cheek names such as lesser-spotted and hairy. If your dad has a playful sense of humor, this gift is sure to go down a treat.
Hummingbird 1000-Piece Jigsaw
This jigsaw will keep your dad entertained for many hours which means lots of peace and quiet for you, yipee. Joking aside, the 1000-piece jigsaw is a really great recommendation, especially if you’re buying a gift for someone that loves hummingbirds as it features a colorful garden scene with flowers, hummingbirds, and butterflies.
Bird-Themed Paint by Numbers for Adults
Paint-by-numbers for adults has had a big comeback in 2021 and this bird-themed kit will make a fun gift for your dad. Included is a 16×20″ canvas, paints, brushes, and fixings so that the piece of art can be hung on the wall afterward for all to enjoy. There are several other animals to paint too so you could buy a couple for a fun family activity.
Porch Swing Bird Feeder
We’ve already included a funny bird box but we couldn’t resist throwing in this novelty bird feeder that’s designed to look like a porch swing. Made from Louisiana Cypress Wood, the swing is easy to hang from any tree in the garden using the included chains. You could even hang it from the porch next to the human porch swing if you have one.
Obsessive Birding Disorder Glass
This beer glass is a great gift for birding dads who can’t resist drinking in style. At 16oz, it’s the perfect size to hold their favorite beverage of choice and also arrives neatly packaged ready to give as a present. Of course, you can’t just give them a beer glass without anything to drink, so it’s best when paired with a few bottles of the good stuff.
Effin’ Birds: A Field Guide to Identification
This is a field guidebook like no other. Be prepared for classic illustrations paired with rude expressions and insults that will bring a smile to any dad’s face. Don’t expect to take this one out birding though. If you want to get a feel for the type of content inside, check out the Effin’ Birds twitter feed which is how they made a name for themselves.
LEGO Bird Model Kit
This set will be great fun for anyone father that loves birds just as much as they love Lego. Included in the set are more than 580 pieces of Lego to create three birds; a robin, a hummingbird, and a blue jay. Each bird also has a stand to display it once complete so you can keep it as an ornament. There’s also an accompanying booklet with lots of information about each of the birds so that it can be a fun and learning experience.
The Birdfather Tee
This is the ultimate gift for bird dads, especially if they are the type of owner that likes to tell everyone about their beloved pet. The 100% cotton t-shirt is soft and comfy to wear with all men’s sizes from XS to 6XL available.
Funny Bird Watching Mug
