Father's Day is just around the corner, and boy did it sneak up on us! We blinked, and suddenly it was summer. And summer is prime dad time! We know Mother's Day gets a lot of the attention, but our best dads deserve to feel the love, too. They do all the ... dad stuff. Plus, a lot of the mom stuff! They make our lives so much easier, and bring so much joy to our kids! Who else can throw the baby 10 feet into the air (FOR FUN) or sit and play Legos with a toddler without losing their ever-loving minds? OK, moms can do that stuff too, but that's where dads really shine. And we can't forget about dad jokes, the corniest and best jokes ever. We definitely had those on the brain when we picked out these hilarious Father's Day cards from Etsy.
See, you can buy dad the best gift. You can spoil him rotten the day of. But what you REALLY need is a good card to pull it all together. And with dad, you have some wiggle room! You can go cute and funny. Or raunchy and funny. You can go sentimental ... but still funny. You're sensing the theme here, yes? For all dads do to make life grand, the least we can do is make them laugh. And these amazing Father's Day cards definitely fit the bill.
Awwwww, back when it all began! We all have our origin stories, right? Planned, not planned, REALLY not planned. But just think - if you hadn't let him into your vagina, you wouldn't be where you are today! This is definitely one of those Father's Day cards for the dad who loves a good dirty joke. But we are not responsible for him asking if he can get into it again after you give him the card. This funny card is brought to you by Etsy shop InANutshell. It's handwritten on heavyweight bright white matte card stock, and sells for $4.45.
Sure, we all leave the nest one day (well, most of us do, anyway). But knowing that the nest is always there to welcome us home with a little green? Priceless. Parents don't stop being parents when their kids leave home, right? And dad is always good to come through in a tight spot or give you that cushion you need to take a risk with your career. You may not be able to pay him back, but at least you can show your appreciation with this funny card from Etsy shop TopHatAndMonocle. And it's only $4.88! Just ... don't ask dad to spot you a fiver to buy it.
It's a dirty job, but someone's gotta do it! The wiping of butts is one of those lovely little parenting tasks that no one really tells you will last for years. What is it about wiping their butt that kids just don't quite understand! Luckily, dad is always there with a wad of TP or a wet wipe to get the job done, and he deserves thanks for that unpleasant work. This adorable card from Etsy shop MrsBestCo is the perfect way to let dad know you're grateful. The card is printed on heavy card stock, and starts at $3.94.
Stepdads are pretty special, when you think about it. They step up and fill a very important role in our lives and our kid's lives. It takes a pretty remarkable person to take on the responsibilities of raising someone else's child. Not only that, but raising them and loving them as their own! So the stepdad in your life definitely needs a funny Father's Day card to let him know you appreciate him, and this one is amazing. You can buy the card from Etsy shop CheekyKumquat for $5, and personalization is available.
First of all, we apologize if you'd finally gotten that song out of your head. We know how quickly this particular ear worm digs its way into your brain, so we feel sort of bad. But just sort of, because this card is SO CUTE. Your toddler may not be able to read, but they can spot a shark when they see one, and they can DEFINITELY make out the lyrics to their favorite song. And what better gift for Father's Day then your little one singing it at the top of their lungs for the entire day?! This card is brought to you by Etsy shop OmayraStudio, and can be yours for just $4.08.
We grow up, we leave the house, and we're adults! Ready to take on the world! We can do this thing, and we can handle anything that comes our way ... or so we think. Then something actually DOES happen and we're suddenly 12 years old again and needing someone for support or help. In an emergency, who you gonna call? Well, dad, of course! He's always going to be your superhero, even when you're your own superhero. Let dad know how important he is to you with this cute card from Etsy shop HarrisCardCo. It sells for just $4.28.
Dads are good at so many things. But if he's a dad and you're a mom and becoming parents wasn't exactly on the agenda, then pulling out is not one of those things, LOL. We love Father's Day cards that are a little bit inappropriate and a lot funny, and we have a feeling a lot of dads out there would appreciate this one, too. It all worked out OK, right? After all, you're hear celebrating Father's Day, so bygones and all that. But if you want to poke a little fun at his pull-out game this Father's Day, this card from Etsy shop PixieCardCo is the one for you. It can be yours for just $3.90.
Remember how excited we were to grow up and be adults and do all the fun adult stuff we imagined adults sit around and do all day? You guys, we were so wrong. Our dads smiled and nodded and probably silently laughed at our naivete. They knew, friends. THEY KNEW. But even though we're adults now, we'll always be daddy's little girl, and he deserves to know that. Who knows, maybe this card from Etsy shop KnottyCards will guilt him into slipping a little cash in your pocket after brunch. At least enough to cover the $4.50 you spent on the card.
If you've ever heard a corny joke, chances are you heard it from your dad. Or your partner. Or another dad. Maybe your kid heard it from their friend who heard it from their dad and shared it with you. All we're saying is, dad jokes have a long reach, and we love them. There's something that comes over a guy once he becomes a dad - his shorts become more cargo-y and his jokes get cornier. Pay homage to the dads with the best dad jokes with this adorable card from Etsy shop WordFindersClub, yours for just $3.60.
You can thank your dad for all the supportive and amazing things he's done for you. You can thank him for having your back, teaching you how to change a tire and check your oil. You'll want to thank him for never judging you and always loving. But really, what it boils down to it this: you have to thank him for doing your mom that one time. Good job on having sex with mom, dad! You really nailed it (her)! This card from Etsy shop ThePaperCicada says it all, and we know so many dads who will appreciate the sentiment.
Listen, all those gray hairs aren't because of the stress or anxiety of parenting. They're smart hairs! They're a sign that our kids have made is wiser, more intelligent human beings! OK, maybe they're a little because of stress. But we should really reframe the whole gray hair thing to make it work in our favor. Wizards aren't considered stressed out, right? They're wise. Your dad is a dad wizard, and that head of gray hair he's rocking (because of you) is his smart patch. This card from Etsy shop Abbielmagine is the perfect way to make him feel better about needing Just for Men.
None of us are perfect, obviously. Especially as parents! We make mistakes and we annoy our kids and maybe even slightly traumatize them from time to time. But you know what? It's OK. Because even if your partner or dad isn't the perfect dad, he's not Darth Vader. And that's something to be celebrated, LOL. For the Star Wars fan in your life, this card from Etsy shop Witandwhistle is the perfect way to let them know you're completely fine that they are who they are, because it could always be worse.
There are two acceptable airport arrival times for dads: four hours early, or ... OK, come to think of it, there's only that one acceptable time. You get there early enough to watch half the airport depart, or not at all. There is no middle ground! But answer us this - have you ever missed a flight your dad was in charge of? We didn't think so. This card from Etsy shop BettieConfetti is the perfect way to say thank you for making us leave when it was still dark outside for an afternoon flight. Better to kill time in the gift shop than have to walk at a brisk pace to get to the gate, right?
Admit it - if you scrolled through your text thread with your dad, you would find this exact exchange at some point. Dads never miss an opportunity to trot out some dad jokes! Texting with our pops is one of the best things about text messaging, and these sorts of replies are the reason why. It's almost like it's ingrained in their DNA to reply like this at least once in our lives. This card from Etsy shop ClassyCardsCreative is the perfect way to remember these funny little dad moments forever.
Life can get pretty messy and hard. And parenting makes it even messier and harder! There are so many ways it can go sideways, and dads have to be skilled at dodging the big obstacles and fixing it when it things go wrong. It's a lot easier to do all that when your kids are easy on the eyes, LOL. We're kidding, obviously, but we definitely know a few dads who would get a chuckle out of this Father's Day card from Etsy shop PMPrinted. You've got to look on the bright side of life, right?!
It wouldn't be Father's Day without some good old-fashioned ribbing, right? We know parenting isn't a competition, except it totally is and your dad will appreciate you throwing mom under the bus in order to make his Father's Day extra special. Mom may not be too happy about it, but there's always Mother's Day next year to even the score! Put some points in dad's column with this card from Etsy shop TheBrownCardCo. Your dad will find it hilarious, your mom will pretend to be offended, and everyone will be happy. More or less.
You can totally shower your partner with love and gratitude for all he does for your family this Father's Day. And then you can make some raunchy jokes and give some adult-only gifts after the kids go to bed! Let the kids give him their homemade cards and gifts, throw some steaks on the grill for dinner, and then make fun of the fact that he probably won't get what he really wants that night, LOL. This card from Etsy shop BanterCards made us laugh out loud. But once again, we take no responsibility for the BJ begging that will most definitely happen after you give it to him.
These are like the three pillars of dad wisdom: don't do drugs, don't get pregnant, and don't get arrested. If your dad gets you through those early years without you doing any of these things, that is definitely a win! Obviously, there's a lot that dad probably doesn't know, and what he doesn't know won't hurt him, right? This card from Etsy shop CraftsUniquey is hand-designed on heavy card stock, and sells for just $3.29. Let your dad know you appreciate his hard work in keeping you sober, child-free, and out of jail.
Obviously, if you've got a good partner, they're going to love you no matter what you look like. But we can all agree that we've gone above and beyond in giving them their children, yes? The very least they can do is continue to give us the heart eyes and make inappropriate comments about how hot we are when the children aren't listening. We made them dads, and we appreciate how much they love us for our sacrifices. So really, this is a card for Father's Day and also a card to pat ourselves on the back for all our hard work. Etsy shop CheekyKumquat really nailed it with this one.
It's the sibling rule! You cannot let a holiday go by, especially one honoring your parents, without taking a moment to highlight all the ways your siblings have undoubtedly disappointed them. The best Father's Day cards will accomplish both! This card from Etsy shop PackAPunchDesigns is the perfect way to wish your dad a Happy Father's Day while absolutely demolishing your siblings. Bonus points if you give dad the card when all your siblings are around, so they can see it all go down.
Your dad is the one you lean on, rely on, go to when you need support or advice. He's the one you call when you get good news, and call when you get bad news. Your dad is your dad, and DNA has nothing to do with it. There are some really amazing stepdads out there, and they deserve to know how much they're loved and appreciated. It's not easy to step in and fill someone else's role, but those who do are true rock stars. Make sure your stepdad knows that he's the real deal with this card from Etsy shop BanterCards.
Dads are just like us - they want to know that even though they're parents now, we still want to jump their bones! And really, is there anything hotter than a good dad? Just watching our partner make airplane noises to get the toddler to eat is enough to get us all revved up. Make sure your partner knows he's more than just a dad this Father's Day, with this cute card from Etsy shop CrimsonandCloverGift. We find the dad jokes and cargo shorts and kid wrestling matches to be VERY attractive.
It can't be a coincidence that FATHER and FARTER look and sound so similar. After all, who's the one responsible for most of the noxious gases in your household?! Newborns and dogs excused, obviously. Dads really embrace the farter title though - a lot of them make it part of their dad jokes routine, even! And when your kid is melting down, dad is always good for a well-time toot to turn that frown upside down. So really, you WANT to thank them for being the best father and the best farter, because those two things go hand-in-hand. This card from Etsy shop PricklierPear is the perfect way to kill two birds with one stone.
OK, so your dad may not see the silver lining here, but honestly? This is a huge gift! He's off the hook for at least another year, who wouldn't appreciate that?! You saved him lots and lots of money, AND you got him a card. Really, you went above and beyond and he should be super grateful. This card from Etsy shop CrimsonandCloverGift is the perfect way to say Happy Father's Day and also force your dad to keep his expectations very low. Hopefully he doesn't get tired of waiting and blow your wedding fund on a Corvette or a timeshare in Hawaii.
Unless you're planning on sending dad to the moon in the Millennium Falcon for a private concert with their favorite band, perfectly cooked steaks, and a keg that never runs out, it's probably not going to be as fun as life before kids. But hopefully he'll be happy with a water slide, the steaks you accidentally burned when the baby woke up from their nap too soon, a sixer of cool-ish Miller Lite, and the Disney channel on Spotify. Plus, he'll get this card from Etsy shop SpadeStationery. So really, it's going to be an epic Father's Day.
