We can all agree dads are famously known for ‘never needing anything.’ And if you’ve bought one too many ties over the years and are in search of something a bit more unique...we found gifts that’ll do the trick.
From bigger-ticket items to subscriptions that keep on giving, these are the perfect options to split with siblings or other family members. So you can shop smarter and make his Father’s Day memorable.
Emphasis on touchless. All he’s gotta do is sweep everything in the direction of the sensor, and it’ll suck everything up. And he won’t need bags or anything for the canister. Once it’s full, it can be dumped directly into the garbage. His kitchen never looked so clean. ($99, The Grommet)
He’ll get a mixing glass with a strainer, a double jigger, a channel knife, a bar spoon, and a walnut wood muddler. And with the marble organization base, this sleek set is something he’ll want to keep out on his bar cart or kitchen counter. Because it really is that pretty. ($150, Bespoke Post)
It’s v simple: he can fill a glass with his fave liquor and place the white oak ring on top. From there he can add the smoking chips to the mesh dish and then apply the flame. Psst...the smoking chips are made from a blend of teas, herbs, and spices. So his drink will get an awesome new flavor and he’ll get that cool-looking smoke all his friends will ‘ooh’ and ‘ahh’ over. ($40+, Uncommon Goods)
Made from a recycled, water-resistant polyester blend, it’s the closet staple he never knew he needed. It also has a 365-day guarantee, meaning if the zipper breaks or the jacket gets a hole, Everlane will replace the item with a brand-new one. ($98, Everlane)
It’s made from 100% Turkish cotton with pockets and a matching belt. And there are even matching slippers too. It’s the perfect option to throw on at the end of the day. And if he says he doesn’t need a robe, don’t listen. He really doesn’t know what he’s missing. ($109, Parachute)
You can select either 12 or 24 beers a month. In the shipment of 12, he’ll get brews from two different regions in the US, with four different beer styles. Selections include each brewer’s most popular option, along with any award-winning beers. It’s a great way to expand his flavor palate. ($44.75/12 beers, Craft Beer Club)
It’s time to upgrade his ultra-worn wallet. Is he still carrying around something with holes? Nope, next. This thin wallet is designed to easily slide in and out of pockets. It’s made from drum-dyed leather, with a fabric lining. You can also get it monogrammed for him. Fancy, fancy. ($80+, Leatherology)
Finally. No more using a bar of soap on his face. That’s madness. This set includes a facial moisturizer, a facial cleanser, a deodorant stick, and a body wash. The deodorant is aluminum-free and all-natural, while the moisturizer, cleanser, and body wash include ingredients to reduce redness, hydrate skin, and smooth texture. ($64, Disco)
Like a 13-inch laptop, 17-ounce water bottle, keys, wallet, notebook, and more. The large compartment can act as a catchall for random items. And anything smaller can go in the zippered front pouch. The backpack also has padded shoulder straps and a luggage sleeve for easier travel. ($105+, State)
He can stream directly from his phone via Bluetooth, and if he’s in the yard, the device works via WiFi. The speaker features technology that adapts to what he’s listening to and where he is, so he’ll always get balanced, crisp sound. It’s also drop-resistant and waterproof up to three feet. Time to jam out to some oldies. ($169, Sonos)
Newsflash: the dad figure in your life will love it. He’ll get to practice his short game, while also enjoying a cold beer. And if he’s playing with anyone too young to drink alcohol, he can sub in water. It’s an easy way to stay entertained outdoors for hours. ($98.99, Wayfair)
Yep, that’s right. It can reduce up to 99.9% of bacteria within minutes. So while his phone juices up, it’ll also come out wayyy cleaner than it went in. And with a full battery he can go back to playing “Words With Friends” nonstop. Because we all know parents never gave that game up. ($99.99, Sharper Image)
Why limit him to local food when he can eat the best of the best? We’re talking ribs and pulled pork from North Carolina’s King’s BBQ. And sausage from Texas’ Snow’s BBQ. You can choose between gifting a three- or six-month subscription. Once you buy it, your recipient will be notified via email. ($89/3 months, Goldbelly)
So he can read anything, anywhere. A single charge can last up to a few weeks, and with twice the storage, he can download more magazines, audiobooks, and reads. It also includes Audible, so he can pair the Kindle with his headphones via Bluetooth. The screen brightness is adjustable, aka it’s easy to read comfortably at night and outdoors. He can also adjust text size and boldness. And thanks to the massive selection of new and old releases, he’ll never be bored. ($129+, Amazon)
He can use it to fry, saute, steam, braise, sear, and boil. So whether he’s making an omelette in the morning or a sauce at night, this pan will become his go-to. Oh, it also comes with a beechwood spatula that nests on top of the handle. And a nesting steamer basket and colander. Psst...we’ve used this pan and love how easy it is to clean. Leftover oils and juices slide right off. Phew. ($145, Our Place)
Because no one loves tossing and turning. Evenly distributed weight while he snoozes can help produce a deeper sleep, plus more serotonin and less cortisol. Aka more relaxing vibes and less stress. It’s made from hand-knit cotton (not tiny artificial beads typically found in weighted blankets), so it feels soft and breathable. Sweet dreams to him. ($249, Bearaby)
