Is your dad or grandfather a real estate appraiser? When you’re out shopping for Father’s Day gifts this year, keep in mind that property appraisers tend to work long hours, spend lots of time in the car, and many of them own their own businesses. That said, here are our favorite Father’s Day gift ideas for appraisers.
For the appraiser dad who works for himself
A coffee mug to contain his morning cup of joe and remind him of the perks of being your own boss. Pair it with a bag of his favorite coffee beans for a personalized touch.
For the appraiser dad who works from home
A custom docking station to help keep his desk organized and make it easy to find everything he needs when it’s time to head out for his next appraisal inspection—including business cards.
For the appraiser dad who loves nature (and needs to relax)
An eco-friendly scented candle to help him relax and unwind at the end of a long work day. For each pine candle sold, one meter of trail is restored in Yosemite National Park.
Parks Project: $34
For the appraiser dad who’s ready to embrace technology
An iPad (or another tablet) to improve his efficiency and make his job easier throughout the appraisal process.
Apple: Starting at $329

For the appraiser dad who’s on the go
A portable charger to keep all his gadgets charged up and ready to use, even on days when he spends more time in the car (e.g., driving to remote comp properties) than at his desk.
Or, a vacuum-insulated tumbler guaranteed to keep his coffee hot or his iced drinks cold when he’s out visiting properties—no matter the temperature outside or time of year.
For the appraiser dad who loves Star Wars
A personalized t-shirt (you can replace “Luke” with your own name) inspired by the famous line from Star Wars, one of the best-loved movie series by fathers and grandfathers everywhere.
