70 Father’s Day Gift Ideas Every Dad Would Love to Have
Instead of giving Dad yet another tie or collared shirt this Father’s Day, why not give him something healthier and more useful? We rounded up the best Father’s Day gifts—he’s sure to love at least one of these ideas.
Take his grilling to the next level
If Dad is always lifting the hood of the grill to peek at the burgers, he’ll marvel at the genius of the glass window in the Monument 4-Burner Propane Gas Grill with Clear View Lid, which lets you monitor what’s cooking without disturbing the process. The heavy-duty porcelain cast iron cooking grids ensure even grilling—no hot spots. Dad will love using the sneaky side and seer burners for veggies, corn on the cob, and even fish. Tell him to check out our foolproof guide to grilling too.
Speaking of perfectly grilled meals…
Dad will love getting his very own Meater, the first truly-wireless meat thermometer that’ll ensure his steaks, chicken, fish, and just about everything else are cooked to absolute perfection. This is the master griller’s secret weapon.
For the active dad
Whether Dad is heading out of town for the weekend or bringing gear to one of his activities, he’ll want to grab the Fjällräven Greeland duffel every time. It’s super rugged, effortlessly cool, and amazingly functional, with a roomy interior, pockets inside and out, and a padded adjustable shoulder strap. The only risk? Other family members will try to grab it first.
Master of the dinner table
Dad will be king of the kitchen with this 13-piece cookware set from Viking. The stainless steel exterior and aluminum-alloy core evenly heats your food so you can say bye to burnt chicken dinners. This set includes all of the essential pots and pans for any type of cooking, so dad will be able to experiment with some new recipes or perfect ones that have been in the family for decades.
Greetings from the dark side
If Dad has a repertoire of famous Star Wars lines—probably including Darth Vader’s big reveal: “Luke, I’m your father,”—then you’ll want to gift him this 3D card from Lovepop. When you open it, Darth Vader pops up with a red foam finger that reads “Best dad in the galaxy.”
A patriotic cooler
Dad loves to bring cold brews to the beach, to the game, on picnics, and camping trips, but somehow they never stay cold. Enter the Pelican ProGear 20QT IM Elite Cooler in Americana red, white, and blue. It’s insulated and leakproof and keeps bevvies cold for days, literally.
For the family hero
For the Dad who sees himself as the brave and fearless leader of the family, Trollbeads has a hip double-wrap leather bracelet with a silver superhero bead and blue tiger eye gemstone. Cape not included.
Everyone loves a care package, and the joy is multiplied exponentially when the package features tasty treats from around the world. Universal Yums is a subscription box of sweet and savory snacks—from Spain, France, Greece, Israel, Korea, the Netherlands and more. Dad will relish sampling 1, 3, 6, or 12 decadent months of delicious snacks that aren’t sold at your local supermarket (but should be). Choose 6, 12, or 20 snacks per box.
A manly wallet
Dads always seem to love good, reliable wallets that stand up to the test of time and ever-changing style. This Bellroy Hide and Seek Leather Bifold Wallet from Huckberry will be his go-to accessory that actually gets used every day. He’ll love that the RFID-blocking upgrade keeps his private information well, private.
Time is on his side
There’s no rubber or neon here: The Canton Day-Date watch from Jack Mason is all class for your modern man, with an elegant stainless steel case and bracelet, a day of the week and date display, and a black dial with silver hands and a sapphire crystal. The watch comes with a ten-year warranty too, so Dad will feel confident wearing it just about everywhere, all the time.
Dad’s new favorite shirt
You think we’re kidding. Get ready to see Dad reach for this short-sleeve v-neck tee from Amour Vert every day that it’s clean (and maybe some other days too). The 100 percent organic cotton fabric makes it super soft, comfortable, and durable, and the slim fit with rib trim detailing gives it just the right look. Feel-good bonus: For every tee they sell, the company plants a tree.
The perfect wine opener
Why struggle with a corkscrew when Cork Pops Legacy Wine Bottle Opener gets the job done in seconds, with zero effort? Just insert the needle into the wine cork and push—up pops the cork. Now all you have to do is practice the perfect toast. Cheers!
This shirt doubles as a play mat and a massage
It’s not the totally affordable $14.99 price tag that makes us think this “Car Massage shirt” is one of the best gifts for Dad on the market—it’s the fact that the feeling of small children riding toy cars along Dad’s back will be sort of like a massage freebie. Is anything better than keeping the kids happy and occupied while he gets a relaxing massage? Hardly. These are the 17 father’s day activities your dad will love.
A gift for his inner superhero
Dad’s childhood idol, Batman, is back and remastered in Batman: The Complete Animated Series Deluxe Limited Edition. The ten Blu-ray box set features 109 episodes of Dark Knight action and comes with three iconic Funko mini-figurines—Batman, Hoker, Harley Quinn—that Dad will secretly play with while no one’s looking.
A beard groomer for trendy facial hair
Courtesy Billy Jealousy Beard Envy Kit
Whether Dad has a neat, trimmed beard that’s on-trend with male runway models or a free-spirited long hipster beard, he’ll love this Beard Envy kit by Billy Jealousy. It comes with a bristled brush designed specifically for beard grooming, a beard wash (it’s similar to shampoo, but really gets all the weird beard gunk out), and a beard grooming product.
Help him achieve the best nap possible
Proven scientific fact: Dads like to nap (and by scientific we mean the evidence is in every household for all time). Which means, of course, that any and all sleep-enhancing paraphernalia is welcome. If you can’t pony up for a fancy new mattress, no worries, Casper makes truly unique pillow-in-pillow designs that are an unusually perfect blend of soft and firm.
For the frequent flyer
If Dad travels a lot for business—or pleasure—he’ll love the Victorinox Connex Medium Hardside Case. It’s spacious for easy packing, lightweight, and stable with wheels that glide effortlessly, and has its own USB port for charging on the go. Choose from classic black or a majestic silver called Falcon.
A manly fitness tracker
If Dad often trapped behind a desk or computer screen? There’s a chance he’s not getting the recommended 10,000 steps a day that he needs and wants. You can help him change that (and other sedentary habits) with a Fitbit Charge 3. It tracks steps, heart rate, sleep, exercise, and even offers GPS. Dad won’t even be able to skip the gym by using the old “But what if I get lost on the way there?” excuse.
Speaking of pool time and naps…
Courtesy Big Mouth Inc
Maybe Dad just wants to have a little fun and relax this summer? We can’t blame him—he works hard. These adorably whimsical pool floats by Big Mouth Inc. are over five feet long, easy to wipe down, and the comfiest way to snooze in the water (just don’t forget the sunscreen!).
The perfect accessory for his wine cellar
Take your Father’s Day wine toast to the next level with the help of Coravin, the only wine bottle opener that allows you to pour wine without removing the cork. Part bottle opening gadget, part wine preservation system, Coravin is an ideal gift for the dad who takes pride in a wine collection and loves to savor some vino.
For the craft brew lover
You really can’t get more “craft” than making your own small batches of home-brewed craft beer and cold brew coffee in the comfort of your own kitchen, which is why we think dads will be obsessed with the Pico C craft brewing appliance. Dad can use his own grains, hops, and other ingredients to brew his own beer recipes from scratch—or choose from the 200+ PicoPaks already available in the BrewMarketplace. The new Pico C UnPak’d Bundle includes a Pico C appliance with brewing keg, serving keg, reusable grain, and hops beer bags, plus reusable bags for brewing cold brew coffee. He’ll want to try these recipes to make with beer after he whips up his first batch of brew!
Something from the favorite child
Are you the favorite child? Probably, you need to be pretty great. If you’re feeling confident, get Dad this budget-friendly Susabella coffee mug that proudly announces your status in the family.
Need a little more than just the mug?
You’ll definitely make your way to favorite child status if you throw in a CRUX coffee grinder. It’s easy to use, compact, and the perfect way to allow Dad the freshest cup of coffee each morning. He’ll probably want to read these calorie-free coffee hacks too.
When he cooks, the whole family benefits
The All-Clad Deep Fryer will leave him (well, you) with world-class fries, onion rings, chicken, fish, donuts, and everything else that’s right with the world. This high-tech gadget also happens to look gorgeous on the counter.
A little vitamin C with a dash of love
That’s the recipe for a perfect Father’s Day, if you ask us, and if Dad needs convincing, tell him to read these vitamin C benefits for better health. He’ll love using a new Hurom Citrus Juicer for fresh orange juice, grapefruit drinks, and even homemade and fresh-squeezed lemonades on the hottest days of summer.
Something to enhance his favorite sport—grilling
Tell Dad to fire up the grill more often, because with Q-Swiper Grill Cleaner by the Proud Grill Company he can easily grill up more delicious meat, fish, fruit, and veggies without having to worry about the hassle of a long-winded clean-up process.
Give Dad something to smile about
Help him smile brighter and healthier with an Oral-B Pro 7500 Power Rechargeable Electric Toothbrush. It comes in a few fun design-friendly colors, makes a fully clean mouth a realistic breeze even when he’s pressed for time, and requires the slightest amount of effort to keep charged and ready. Don’t forget to add our list of foods that fight tooth decay too.
If he’s handy, he’ll love this do-it-all yard helper
OK, maybe it seems a bit obvious as an idea, but Dad will love any powered-up equipment that helps him achieve the perfect landscaping in less time. The Anker Roav 14-Inch 36V Lithium-ion Cordless Chainsaw offers him easy trimming, cordless mobility, and all the vroom-vroom power he’s been known to love.
Something to keep him cool
This textured heathered polo from 32 Degrees might look like any other handsome short-sleeved shirt Dad would wear to the golf course or out to brunch, but it’s got secret anti-odor, anti-static, and quick dry qualities. Dad will love that it’s super-soft and stretchy, and you’ll love the price—less than $15!
He’ll sink his teeth into this
Nothing says Father’s Day like a perfectly grilled steak, and Dad will flip for all the options in Omaha Steaks’ Father’s Day Gift Package. In addition to the ribeye steaks, filet mignons, Omaha Steaks burgers, and signature seasoning packet, there’s potatoes au gratin and German chocolate cake. Drooling yet?
The better to kiss you with
The dad in your life is already a handsome devil, obviously, so he’ll appreciate a sophisticated set of SPF 25 lip balms like this one from Jack Black. It includes three lip-protecting balms with SPF 25 that help seal in moisture while protecting from the elements. Don’t miss these 20 dads and the best Father’s Day gift they’ve ever received.
Yes, this is hand soap, but it is French—ooh la la—and so wonderful and luxurious that anyone would be thrilled to receive it as a gift. If the black glass bottle wasn’t already cool enough, Dad will really dig the notes of black tea and blackberry and the fact that the soap actually softens hands as it cleans. Don’t be surprised if Dad uses every last drop and then orders more while no one’s looking.
For the general in your home
Dad keeps all the little soldiers in line, so he’ll love this ultra-fun large duffel in camouflage from Quilted Koala. He can get the kids from Point A to Point Soccer Practice, head to the gym, or take you on vacation with it.
Clothes that don’t bite
Seriously though, this insect-repellent shirt from Craghoppers is an outdoorsy dad’s dream. He can relax, hang out, grill, or just about anything else without fear of pesky mosquito bites. If you don’t get him this shirt, you can email him our guide to why he’s getting so many mosquito bites.
Let’s taco ’bout these cool socks
Fun dads love fun socks. Whether they wear them with a smart suit or shorts and flip flops, the three-packs from Bold Socks, with themes including tacos, tech, puzzles, sharks, magical creatures, water travels, and colorful geometric patterns, are sure to make Dad smile. As a feel-good bonus, each pair sold helps provides 100 days of clean drinking water for a person in Africa.
Give him a healthier version of his fave hearty meal
Sure, you could wrap up a bottle of his favorite liquor or some new mixers, but wouldn’t he (and everyone else around) revel in the idea of a nonstop bevy of healthy meal options thanks to this Bella Air Convection Fryer? We think so, and we’re positive he’ll love the tasty, healthier chicken wings upgrade.
The perfect backpack for business travel
If Dad is constantly on the go and needs to bring his laptop, files, and other electronic gear with him, he’ll love the NOMATIC Backpack. It’s a slim, water-resistant accessory that features anti-theft design, RFID protection, and the modern masculine styling he loves. Check out these movies to watch on Father’s Day, too.
Coffee gear, because duh
Those bulky coffee mugs of the past will need to take a seat, because Dad’s new favorite coffee accessory, the STOJO Biggie 16-Ounce is a travel-friendly, dishwasher-safe travel mug that folds into everything from briefcases to pockets with ease.
Is he still wearing shorts from 2006?
We’re not judging unless the board shorts in question have tears or holes in them. Bring Dad up to current fashion with a pair of modern, temperature-moderating, and super comfy Dickies Men’s 11 Inch Temp-iq Performance Hybrid Utility Shorts. They’ll cement his not-a-regular-dad-but-a-cool-dad status. Don’t miss these absurdly macho Father’s Day gifts people actually buy.
Keep him charged up
Dad has tons of tech gadgets and is always in need of multiple charging cables. For a practical gift, consider this super-strong, flexible charging cable for Apple devices from Native Union, with a ten-foot cord for reaching almost any outlet in the room. The eye-catching zebra stripe and cool decorative knot means it’s less likely to get accidentally left behind.
Comfortable summer sandals
While you may have the intention of sending him to the beach in these chic, comfortable Sanuk Men’s Yogi 4 Flip Flop sandals, there’s a good chance they’ll be his go-to locker room shoes, run-to-buy-milk slippers, and can’t-be-bothered-to-tie-laces-for-school-dropoff footwear. Check out these 13 funny Father’s Day quotes to make him laugh.
For the effortlessly cool father
Just think of all the easy, thought-free outfits he’ll put together with his PUMA Roma Basic Sneakers. They appeal to his vintage-loving side, his desire to always be comfortable, and your love of staying up to date. Tell him he’s free to pair them with everything from denim and button-down shirts to shorts and a day at the playground.
He’ll wear these every day
Because Dad deserves a good pair of sunglasses with his own prescription, enter Lensabl. This company will add your personal Rx to any set of frames you might already own. So send in Dad’s favorite shades and have them fitted with lenses that don’t just look cool, but that actually help him see.
The smoothest guy in town
The most charming, smooth-talking dads will love the gift of Celestial Silk 100% Silk Pillowcases. They’re the ultimate luxury, feel like a dream against his skin, and will do wonders for your hair.
For the comfort-loving gym buff
Swap out his tired summer gear for Thompson Tee Sweatproof Undershirts for Men, which are designed to trap cool air and wick sweat away. They’re great as undershirts, gym shirts, or just about any other life activity that renders Dad sweaty.
Help Dad discover his love of new wines
He’ll love a new ULLO Wine Purifier with filters if he considers himself a food buff and a lover of all types of gadgets. This nifty little device helps seamlessly filter out the chemical additives in most commercially produced wines that leave us with headaches, flushed cheeks, and other annoyances. He’ll be left with all the best flavors and none of the hassle. Bonus with every kit: dinnertime science discussion.
If he’s obsessed with his hair
Paging Uncle Jesse, paging Uncle Jesse. We found the miracle hair supplement every dad with flowing locks will thank you for. Nutrafol Hair Loss Thinning Supplement is loaded with everything he needs to stimulate healthy hair growth from within—meaning he can stop rubbing all those weird snake oils into his scalp.
Flavor-loving fathers will love this
Give him an Eparé Salt or Pepper Grinder to help him enjoy time in the kitchen just a sprinkle more. He can grind exciting, rare peppercorns, the sea salt you brought back from your last vacation, or just about any other dry spice.
Shoes he’ll live in
Forget stuffy, uncomfortable shoes. Let Dad head to a casual day at the office or around town in these ultra-comfortable slip-on sneakers from BEARPAW. The perforated styling will keep his feet cool on even the hottest days of summer. And at this price, you might want to buy two pairs because they’re definitely going to see a lot of traffic.
For the biggest sports fans
The sports fan in your home will go wild for a new pair (or several) of Stance Pop Fly Baseball Socks. Whether he’s for the Yankees or Sox, Marlins or Cubs, he’ll be excited to display his team pride.
The most versatile oil
He’ll enjoy dipping bread, drizzling salads, coating his favorite sandwiches, and so much more in Bono Val di Mazara Sicilian PDO Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil. It’s the food lover’s answer to heart-healthy organic condiments, and it goes with just about everything.
He’s the sweetest, isn’t he?
For the super sweet father with a love of desserts, he’ll love nibbling on this Giusto Sapore Italian Panettone Premium Salted Caramel Gourmet Bread alongside his favorite espresso drink. It’s a fun, sugar-sweet way to let him know he’s the best and most loving guy in the world. Check out the 31 times our dads were the funniest people on Earth.
For the Game of Thrones fan
He’ll get a smile(and a lot of use) out of this Tervis Game of Thrones tumbler. He can pop cold brews in it for easy sipping, or use it on colder winter days as a hot coffee travel mug. It’s BPA-free, suits both cool and warm drinks, and is both dishwasher and microwave-safe.
Probably the most useful gift of all time
Remember those gift coupons for massages, taking out the trash, and doing the dishes we all used to make and give our parents in the past? They’re back, and Knock Knock Vouchers are the more formal and sophisticated way to give Dad the joy of gift coupons he can give at any time. He can cash them in for a variety of useful luxuries like control of the remote, peace and quiet, or a car wash. Don’t miss these 10 books for dad that will bring you closer.
The best nap of his life
If Dad is prone to weekend naps and the whole family piling into bed for cuddle time, he’ll grin from ear to ear when he receives a set of Sheets & Giggles 100 percent Eucalyptus Lyocell. Not only are they crafted from trees grown on sustainably managed plantations, but they’re sleep-inducingly soft, breathable, and luxurious in all the best ways.
For the travel buff
If you haven’t already heard of Ostrich Pillow, you need to, because Dad is about to be obsessed. It’s the modern answer to those old school, uncomfortable neck pillows meant for long flights. The Ostrich Pillow works as a sort of cocoon for the head and neck, creating a fully supported and dark environment for Dad to catch up on sleep.
The world’s comfiest T-shirt
It turns out the people at Bensly have made the most comfortable fitted men’s t-shirts of all time—out of organic cotton and other thought-forward materials like tencel —and if your dad is the casual type, he’ll love a few tentree Juniper Pocket Short Sleeve T-Shirts.
Man maintenance is a growing trend
There’s no reason the dad in your life shouldn’t be privy to all the latest and greatest men’s grooming trends, which is why we know he’ll love this Braun Series 9 Men’s Electric Shaver. It’s a major upgrade from anything he’s used to because this model promises to shave more hair in the first stroke than any other premium shaver. In other words, less time wasted in front of the sink and more time with a smooth affection-ready face.
Work days just got easier
Work pants don’t have to be stiff and uncomfortable. The Savane Men’s Active Flex 4-Way Stretch Garbadine Pants look professional but have a secret stretchy waistband that makes them ridiculously comfortable for all-day wear. These will be Dad’s go-to work pants in no time.
For the father in need of some soothing
Dads known to hit the gym with all their might will love the gift of a new Hyperice Vyper 2 foam roller. It uses vibration technology to offer added resistance when used during various exercises, as well as providing myofascial release post-workout.
Hats off to Dad
Who’s your papa bear? That’s right. Dad will wear his Life is Good Papa Bear baseball hat with pride. It helps that it’s made of 100 percent cotton twill that’s pre-washed for softness.
Because he’s constantly connected
Whether he’s on an android phone or a die-hard iPhone user with the latest model, he’ll love an iOttie iON Wireless Fast Charging Pad Plus. All he’ll have to do is manage to put his phone down on this sleek, design-friendly pad, and within minutes his phone will be charged so he can get back to gaming, surfing, working, and whatever else he’s up to.
Because you want him in the best health
Even if Dad can’t get on board with traditional vitamins, he’ll have a tough time passing up the yummy gummies from Garden of Life mykind Organics. Made with good-for-men ingredients such as vitamin E and D3, they have the equivalent of nine organic whole fruits in every bottle, minus processed sugars and syrups, artificial colors and flavorings, animal products, and GMOs.
For the man who loves a seriously close shave
If Dad loves the idea of having his face be almost as smooth as baby’s, he’ll obsess over the travel-friendly Gillette Fusion5 Proshield Chill Men’s Razor Handle + 4 Blade Refills kit. It’s an affordable item teens and tweens can use their allowance on, or you can load up a bag of his favorite practical must-haves and just wait for him to smile.
For the coffee lover
Even better than breakfast in bed—who wants crumbs in the sheets anyway?—is a piping hot jolt of caffeinated goodness before your feet even touch the floor. You can feel extra good about brewing up some rich Grounds & Hounds organic whole bean single origin coffee because 20 percent of profits support life-saving animal rescue initiatives.
For anywhere he styles his hair
If Dad has the best beard in town and loves a professional-level coiffure, he’ll need you to replenish his collection of RICH by Rick Ross Strong Styling Wax. It’s ideal for wire-like beards, thair on his head that could use some texture, or just about anywhere else he feels like he’s losing control (except getting the kids to bed, styling wax simply can’t be used for that).
For the gadget-dad
He’ll never be caught without a bottle opener, can opener, screwdriver, wire stripper and other go-to tools with the Alox Limited edition Pioneer Swiss Army Knife for 2019. It’s compact and hardworking—perfect for his pocket every single day.
Gluten-free fatherly goodness
Sometimes the best Father’s Day gift idea is a simple, delicious dessert that honors his health needs. Biscoche Garmone Pistachio Coconut Macaroons are both gluten-free and egg-free, making it easy for him to stay on track with his specific dietary goals. Be sure to check out these tech gifts for dads that he’ll love, too.
