For the ultimate sous chef: Viking Acacia 20″ Butcher Block Prep/Serving Board
Up dad’s grilling prep with this beautiful Viking cutting board. It has three built in bowls so he can keep the peppers away from the onion in an effort to please the picky eaters in the family.

For grill lovers: KC Cattle Company’s Backyard Dad Bundle
Fire up the grill because Dad will waste no time cooking up the Wagyu Ribeye Steaks, burgers, beef and bacon cheeseburger bratwurst, and Wagyu beef hot dogs in this drool-worthy gift set from KC Cattle Company. The four-year-old company, which is 100 percent veteran-owned and operated, has won recognition for its gourmet Wagyu beef hot dogs, which taste like steak on a bun. Owner Patrick Montgomery, a former U.S. Army ranger, raises his cattle with zero hormones or antibiotics on 300 acres in Missouri. Don’t be surprised if Dad starts gifting KC Cattle Company to himself after this delectable eating experience.
For outdoorsy dads: Tommy Breeze Classic Soft Top Hat
Everyone needs a summer hat! Whether Dad does hardcore hiking or just hangs on the patio, he’ll keep a cool head with this comfy, soft, classic baseball hat from Tommy Breeze.

It’s hand-sewn in Fairfax, California, to add a personal touch.
For the Dog Lover: West & Willow Custom Pet Portrait
Let’s face it, the dog is probably his favorite “child” anyway, so instead of fighting that fact, embrace it. Dad will love a custom pet portrait from West & Willow. It couldn’t be any easier either: all you have to do is send in a photo of the pup, then choose a background and a frame.
For the traveler: Travelpro Platinum Elite Large Check-In Expandable Hardside Spinner
For times when it’s smarter to check your luggage, Dad will absolutely love this big daddy of smart bags from TravelPro. The majestic metallic spinner is lightweight and ultra-durable with an easy-to-clean polycarbonate shell, lots of interior zip pockets (including one for damp items), four spinner wheels that practically glide on their own, a two-inch zipper expansion, a TSA-approved lock, and built-in USB ports (with external FAA-compliant storage for a power bank) for powering electronics on the go. TravelPro is so sure of the quality of this luggage—it passed 15 durability tests, including something called a “cold drop test”—that it offers a Built For A Lifetime Limited Warranty.
For sock rockers: The Rolling Stones Box Set
You can’t always get what you want, but Rolling Stones fans can get the band’s iconic “hot lips” logo on three pairs of riotously colorful and fun socks from Happy Socks.

For dads who entertain: Galanz Convertible Fridge/Freezer

Solve both problems at once with the new Galanz Convertible Fridge/Freezer. This slender single-door unit can easily switch from one mode to the other with a touch of a button, and there’s plenty of built-in organization—with removable glass shelves, a clear plastic bin, and four-door bins.

Crafted in Turkey by a multi-generational family of knife forgers, this essential cooking tool has an 8-inch stainless steel blade that is practically begging for hardcore chopping duty. One manly reviewer writes: “Very sharp. Cut goose in half with ease. Love it.”
For movie buffs: VIZIO 55″ SmartCast Smart TV HDR V-Series V555-J
When we say big screen TV, we’re talking enormous, nearly movie-screen-size football games, Super Bowls, horror movies, comedies, and all of Dad’s favorite Star Wars movies and TV shows or episodes of The Crown. This VIZIO Smart TV is such a treat not only because of its 55-inch size, but for its award-winning SmartCast platform with hundreds of free streaming channels that Dad can access using an all-new Voice Remote (with no fees, log-ins, or subscriptions). It really doesn’t get easier than that. For tech aficionados, there’s also the 4K picture quality, Dolby Vision HDR, and a lightning-fast IQ processor. Since this smart TV clocks in at less than $500, throw in the V-Series 2.1 Home Theater Sound Bar for extra rich, clear sound that completes the entertainment experience.
For sharp dressers: BUGATCHI Melange Three-Button Polo

For the gamer: Metafy Private Lessons
If Dad loves chess—perhaps he got wrapped up the year’s biggest Netflix hit, The Queen’s Gambit, or if he’s a fan of gaming—we’re talking Fortnite, Smash Ultimate, Mortal Kombat, and more, he’ll be thrilled with the gift of private one-on-one champion-level coaching from Metafy. Over 450 coaches offer personalized instruction in over 80 popular games. Rates start as low as $15 per hour, making it an affordable way to brush up on existing skills, build new ones, or reach for the goal of becoming a grandmaster.
For dads who love toys: Handmade Wood Game Tic Tac Toe
The classic game of tic tac toe is way more exciting when it’s in three dimensions. Handcrafted in Thailand from rain tree and rubber wood, the game features a square board with nine standing pegs to hold the X and O shapes. Here’s the coolest part: Sold on the UNICEF site, every purchase provides 13 packets of lifesaving nourishment to children suffering from acute malnutrition.
For the well-heeled dad: Harmony783 Men’s Brown Leather Driver
Harmony783 wants you to know about their patent-pending grounding technology that runs pure silver thread through the midsoles and footbeds of all their shoes to send natural energy up into the body. But fans of the soft full-grain leather and cushy padded memory foam in these dress-casual slip-ons rave about the incredible comfort, great fit, and high quality. One reviewer notes: “I wore the drivers right out of the box to work. I do a lot of walking and I was not fatigued at all! I even got a compliment from a co-worker. These shoes have now become my favorite!” Comes in sizes 7–15.
For the casually styled pops: Ben Sherman Archive Indigo Short-Sleeve Shirt
He’ll wear this timeless short-sleeved Ben Sherman classic for years to come, thanks to timeless styling, a versatile deep indigo color that goes with just about everything, and 100 percent machine-washable cotton fabric that makes even his messiest, sweatiest summer outings seem like no big deal.

For the sweetest guy: Maple Craft Bourbon Barrel Maple Syrup
If the words bourbon and maple perk him right up, this affordable luxury will have him smiling through the next several Sunday-morning meals. This delectable food gift is a family-friendly barrel-aged maple syrup (after all, it’s just the barrels imparting flavor, not actual bourbon) that offers notes of caramel, oak, and smoke behind the rich, local Vermont maple flavor. He’ll pour it over pancakes, drizzle it on salmon steaks before cooking, or throw a small spoonful in his morning coffee for a bit of fun.
For dads of all ages: JLab Audio JBuds Wireless Earbuds
These Bluetooth earbuds make the perfect tech gift for dad, thanks to sleek black and gold styling, an included charging case that’s small enough to fit in his favorite jeans pocket, and six or more hours of seamless play time with an extra 18 or so hours in the case. They also boast stereo calling, an upgraded microphone, and crystal-clear clarity—all of which makes them seem far more expensive than their under-$50 price tag. Did you wait until the 11th hour to look for the perfect present? We’ve got you covered with these last-minute Father’s Day gifts he’ll never know you ordered late.
For the work-from-home dad: Pixel Blue Light Protection Glasses
If he’s spending hours in front of a computer screen or tablet or catching up on work with his smartphone from home, these flattering Pixel blue light protection glasses will be the unsung hero of his workspace. They’re designed to reduce symptoms of eye strain and dry eyes, as well as headaches from too much screen time. The clear lenses don’t have the strong yellow tint many blue light protection products do, and these feature 100 percent UV protection as well. Try coupling this gift with the best sunglasses with UV protection and he’ll be all set for all seasons and occasions.
For the one with timeless style: Unbound Merino Polo Shirt
This simple-looking polo shirt is unlike any other he has in his collection. It features superfine Merino wool that feels as light as cotton but works hard to keep him stink-free because of its natural sweat-wicking and temperature-regulation properties; he’d be hard-pressed to find that in a synthetic material. It’s available in several classic dad-friendly colors, fits like a dream, and will excite everyone at home when they realize this extremely high-quality fabric actually requires less frequent machine washing than other materials. Plus, he can wear it tucked neatly into pants for a comfortable business casual look any day of the week.
For the comfort-driven dad: Dearfoams Oscar Microwool Clog Slipper
These comfortable microwool clog-slipper hybrids are just what he’ll want to lounge around in, but they also offer just the right amount of support, comfort, and traction for him to tinker around in the garage, run to the mailbox, or take the dog out for a couple of minutes without the hassle of getting a whole socks-and-sneakers combo going. At just $20, these versatile men’s slippers look a lot more expensive than they actually are.
For the outdoorsy dad: Sierra Designs Double Lightweight Hammock
He’ll love taking this lightweight and travel-friendly hammock with him on camping trips, vacations, and impromptu park gatherings with friends and family, but he can also just set it up in the backyard to enjoy a peaceful nap in nature. It’s the perfect gift from a wife or daughter, as it fits up to two people in case a kid or spouse wants to hop in for a photo, is great for relaxing, and is made of ultra-durable lightweight nylon that packs small for carry-on bags and backpacks.
For the family videographer: Pivo Pod Red
His home-video game is about to be forever changed with this content creation pod that works just as well for Instagram, TikTok, and other social media content as it does for fun, memorable family videos that make his work look like he had a whole crew behind him. Its auto-tracking feature means this phone-holding pod will actually follow him, you, or the kids in any direction so there’s never an off-screen moment, and it works just as well with hands-free FaceTime and video calls, too. He’ll be able to seamlessly video-chat while cooking, tinkering, working out, or whatever else he loves doing, which is exactly why this is one of the most life-changing tech gifts on our Father’s Day gift guide list.
For the top chef: Laconiko Black Truffle Extra Virgin Olive Oil
If he’s always whipping up something worthy of a Michelin star, Dad is going to love this ultra-premium black truffle-infused extra virgin olive oil from Laconiko. Add this bottle of savory goodness to a Father’s Day gift basket brimming with pastas, ripe salad vegetables, and his favorite proteins and you’ll see him smiling from ear to ear.

For the bearded dad: Walton Wood Farm Beard Balm
Some of the best cheap Father’s Day gifts from family members on a budget at the ones he’ll actually use every day, and this paraben-free beard balm from Walton Wood Farm is no exception. It’s made with a 100 percent natural base, offers fragrance notes of real maple bark and treasured hiking trails, and goes to work conditioning even the scraggliest of beards with minimal effort. It’s also great for traveling, thanks to its convenient size, leak-free construction, and dye-free formula.
For the dad you want to pamper: Brooklinen Classic Bath Towels
Maybe Dad hasn’t gotten the vacation, massage, or other relaxing experiences he truly deserves because of social distancing. You can change all that by creating an utterly indulgent Father’s Day package filled with home spa products, including a set of these over-the-top Brooklinen bath towels.

For the dog dad: Petsies Custom Pet Socks
He’s going to snort-laugh when he gets a pair of Petsies’ custom-printed socks with Fido’s face emblazoned on them.

He won’t soon forget this Insta-worthy personalized pet gift, and you’ll all get a good chuckle out of it.
For the surfer: Sharkbanz 2 Magnetic Shark Repellent Bands

They also feature a non-slip latex threading that sets them apart from other popular bands on the market, because these actually stay in place during use.
For the kitchen rock star: Stella Falone Reversible Cutting Board
This beauty is a far cry from his typical cutting board, thanks to double-thick exotic hardwood, marbled hues, and a dose of feel-good ethics. The West African ebony wood the board of made of is legally and ethically sourced from Cameroon, and the brand, Stella Falone, helps sustain steady jobs with living wages while supporting sustainable harvesting practices. Its large size (18 x 11.4 inches) is ideal for heavy-duty meal prep, carving, and jaw-dropping cheese boards. And in case you were wondering, wood cutting boards are typically better than their plastic counterparts.
For the best dad of all time: Nixon Sentry Chrono Watch
This sleek, almost sports-car-like Nixon watch is about to be his new favorite timepiece. He’ll wear it during the workweek, out to dinner, and as a dash of sophisticated charm with his typical jeans-and-tee look. The 42mm size beautifully displays a six-hand chronograph, 24-hour subdial, and a printed seconds track that make this watch seem like a far more expensive choice. Better yet, the steel three-link bracelet has a double-locking clasp with micro-adjustments that make it a comfortable, easy piece he’ll wear for years to come. And don’t forget to get a Father’s Day card to go along with this gift! If you’re stumped on what to write, here’s what to write in a Father’s Day card.

The brand’s signature hemp fabric offers anti-microbial and odor-repelling protection and doesn’t shrink or lose its shape in the wash.
For the sideline supporter: Bug Bite Thing Suction Tool

For the health-focused: Oura Ring
Tell his FitBit, Apple watch, and other fitness devices to take a seat because the Oura ring is the more easily worn fitness-tracking device you’ll both end up wanting. It looks like a regular, stylish ring, but it actually includes sensitive tracking for steps, heart rate, respiration, and more. It does most of the typical smartwatch things without all the weight and bulk of a larger piece, and it holds a charge for seven straight days instead of a watch needing daily recharges. Plus, a lightweight titanium ring that’s both water-resistant and sized specifically for his finger makes it something that seldom comes off. The accompanying app is easy to navigate and understand, and a free sizing kit and charger are included with every order, so you don’t have to worry about spending anything extra. Here are more smart devices that are worth every penny.
For the on-the-go dad: MaskTite Face Mask Tape
