Choosing the Perfect Father's Day Gift with Fast International Shipping

Father’s Day is just around the corner, making it the perfect time to find that ideal gift for Dad. But with so many options out there, what should you buy, and what should you steer clear of this season? Here’s a handy guide to help you navigate your choices.

What to Buy


Every dad appreciates a fresh wardrobe update. This year, look for modern yet timeless pieces he can wear year-round. Stores like Kohl’s and Old Navy often have special Father’s Day deals, offering great prices on stylish clothing. Consider checking out brands like Levi’s for classic jeans or Tommy Bahama for relaxed, island-inspired shirts.


Gadgets always make great gifts, and there are plenty of deals to be found on popular electronics. An iPad from Apple, a sleek laptop from Dell, or a new set of wireless earbuds can make any dad's day. Check out online stores like Amazon, Best Buy, and Apple’s official store for top-notch deals. 

Fitness Supplies

Help Dad stay in shape with the latest fitness gear. A cutting-edge GPS watch, such as the Garmin Forerunner, or new workout apparel from Nike or Under Armour can motivate him to keep moving. Retailers like MooseJaw and Dick's Sporting Goods offer a wide selection of fitness equipment and clothing.


A stylish new briefcase, carry-on, or suitcase can be a practical and appreciated gift. Brands like Samsonite and Tumi offer durable and fashionable options. For the best deals, visit stores like eBags and Zappos. While you’re on Zappos, you might also find a trendy new pair of shoes to complete the look.

What to Avoid


While gourmet treats might seem like a good idea, shipping perishable items internationally can be problematic. Many countries have restrictions on fresh produce, and chocolates can melt during transit. MyUS cannot ship perishable items. See our Restricted & Prohibited Items to learn more. 


Although a nice cologne is a thoughtful gift, many fragrances contain alcohol, which can be flammable and may cause issues during international shipping. While MyUS can ship colognes with special packaging for an additional fee, potential delays mean your gift might not arrive on time. It’s safer to choose another type of gift.


Items like swords or rifles might look impressive, but exporting these from the USA can be complicated. MyUS cannot ship firearms or explosives, and even items like knives and swords require thorough reviews that could delay your shipment. It's best to avoid these items altogether.
