Products you buy through our links may earn us a commission. Oh, and if something's out of stock, oops, it was there (and all prices were accurate) at time of publication.

Who can really put a price on all the things your dad has done for you over the years? This is for all the times he changed your oil, took you to soccer practice, listened to you on the phone describing your symptoms, and broke up fights between the very siblings who are helping you bankroll this gift. We’ve found clothing and accessories to help him step up his fashion game, premium steaks, and more. He deserves the splurge.

A linen shirt that’s just plain cool…

Buck Mason makes timeless menswear, and this linen camp shirt is no exception. It’s made of a lightweight linen that has a slight sheen and a camp collar. This is the type of shirt that will make him want to smoke a cigar or pair it with crisp shorts on vacation. ($168, Buck Mason)

You heard it here first, the next old-is-new-again trend will be the return of Ray-Ban Wayfarers. The shape tends to look good on everyone, and they’re polarized to reduce glare if he’s out on the lake. If they were good enough for Bob Dylan, they’re good enough for Dad. ($230, Nordstrom)

Show him you care by gifting him the comfortable sneakers you’ll also be wearing all summer long.

The Rolls Royce of shavers…

Hand-brewed coffee pods to make his mornings a little smoother…

These pods are brewed with the finest coffee beans, then flash frozen to maintain their freshness, so even true coffee connoisseurs will approve.
