GRILLMASTER

BigMouth Inc The Grill Sergeant BBQ Apron

If he takes this grilling thing seriously — maybe a little too seriously? — this is the ultimate accessory. A military-style apron that beefs up his whole experience.

$19.99 AT AMAZON

Nodpod Microbead Weighted Sleep Mask

Weighted blankets are great if he’s anxious and needs to feel supported through the night, but if he isn’t getting enough shut-eye, that’s a different story. In that case, weighted blankets aren’t soothing, they’re hot and feel suffocating. What dad needs to get a good night’s rest is  the Nodpod Microbead Weighted Sleep Mask that he can place over his eyes and, with the science of Deep Touch Pressure, be out like a light in minutes. 

$32.00 AT AMAZON

$227.00 AT AMAZON

LBLA FPV Drone with WiFi Camera Live Video

“It’s not a toy! It’s an advanced aerial photography device.” Suuuuuuure it is. Then why is he making sound effects when it takes off and lands?

$39.95 AT AMAZON

Perfect for slicing, carving, shucking, or any of the other things that seem like they could leave your handy guy a little less hand-y.

$11.49 AT AMAZON

Hamilton Beach Breakfast Sandwich Maker

Is your guy an early riser? Or maybe he’s the type to skip cooking whatever’s in the house and pick up breakfast at the nearest drive through instead. Hamilton’s Beach Breakfast Sandwich Maker will completely transform his mornings (and your bank account) for the better. 

$24.99 AT AMAZON

Parachute Classic Bathrobe 

Not all men will own up to loving the soothing feel of a soft, warm robe after a warm shower — but that doesn’t mean they don’t. If he thinks he’s low-key stealing yours (but you’ve definitely caught him on occasion), treat him to this spa-like number from Parachute. Snug at the waist and plush all-over, he won’t be shy to sport this loungewear essential around the house. 

$99.00 AT PARACHUTE HOME

Outdoor Voices CloudKnit Hoodie

We’re convinced throwing on a hoodie the second he gets home is the male equivalent to women yanking off their bra after a long day at the office. When he’s looking for something snug to lounge in, he’ll gravitate toward this hoodie from Outdoor Voices every time. Part polyester, part spandex, they should have coined this comfy pull over the Cloud Nine hoodie, because that’s exactly how he’ll feel once he slips it on.

$18.00 AT AMAZON

Knock Knock What I Love About Dad Book

Dads love sentimental gifts too. What better way to express your love for the father of your children than to have them present him with this book. It’s kind of like a sweet version of Mad Libs — your kids fill in the blanks about special qualities they see if their father or memories they’ve shared with him.

$12.90 AT AMAZON

YouTube TV Subscription

Cable bills keep getting pricier and pricier, but you can cut his in half (or more) with a subscription to YouTube TV (it’s his favorite app anyway, right?).
