Trust us, we have ’em all: Gifts from daughters, sons, and wives; gifts for grandpas, stepdads, and future fathers. Personalized gifts. Cool gifts. Funny gifts. Cheap gifts (don’t worry, we won’t tell). No, we’re not kidding when we call this the ultimate Father’s Day Gift Guide — although, Dad jokes are always welcome around here.
But first, a moment of appreciation. While he may not be the one homeschooling the kids (or if he is, buy him everything he wants this year), he is Dad. Keeping the kids out of your hair, getting them off of their screens to do every sort of outdoor activity under the sun, even introducing them to the joy of music— Dad is there to teach the kiddos about life. Then there’s Grandpa, who’s there to bestow his wisdom (and debauchery?) on another generation, and let’s not forget the stepdads and soon-to-be dads who all deserve some recognition on this special day. Yes, the dads in our lives just have a way of making things better; whether it’s with a silly game, a power tool (yikes!), or a simple hug, they’re the real-life superheroes who always save the day.
We’re bringing you our top gifts so you can give him a little somethin’ somethin’ to make him feel appreciated and loved. Finding a great gift for dad isn’t as hard as you think— we’ve done the heavy lifting so you won’t have to.
Best Father’s Day Gifts
Being a dad is stressful and this handy device will work out the knots in his neck and back so you don’t have to. Heck, he might even let you use it, too! This deep-kneading massager will relax his muscles, but his favorite part will be the adjustable heat function that feels so soothing. And you’ll love the price — it’s cheaper than the cost of one massage, plus this gift will keep on giving. Just don’t be surprised if he falls asleep on Father’s Day while testing out his new gift. Just remember, it’s his day. With over 24,000 glowing 5-star reviews, there must be something magical about this massager.
You know what dads like? A project. You know what dads also like? Cooking things at a very high heat. Made In’s cult-favorite blue carbon steel wok actually gets the stamp of approval from this Scary Mommy editor’s chef husband — it’s a bonafide high-quality wok that evenly disperses the temp, so you’ll get perfectly cooked food every single time — it’s like a science. And yes, there is some maintenance involved (you have to constantly oil it so it stays seasoned. NEVER EVER wash it with dish soap, and heaven forbid it ends it in the dishwasher), but in the end, it’s worth it. Dads will be over the moon with this one.
Is your dad the kind of dad who scoffs at Apple products? Yeah, we all know an Apple skeptic dad. But you don’t need to go with Apple to get a really high-quality pair of wireless earbuds. We tested Bose’s QuietComfort Noise-Canceling earbuds for several hours — with kids, TV, and two dogs barking in the background — and they not only passed the test, but they excelled. If you really want to treat Dad this year, get him these earbuds. Even if he pretends to give you crap about how the free earphones airplanes give you are better (lol, come on Dad).
There’s no doubt most dads would love a quicker, easier, and healthier way to cook their favorite foods at home. This Air Fryer from TaoTronics is a fan favorite on Amazon that will allow them to fry, bake, reheat — you name it! It features a touch control panel, 11 preset menus, a dishwasher-safe basket, and it even comes with a recipe book. Dad will get everything he needs to make a quick batch a fries, roast a chicken, or reheat last night’s take out.
An air fryer just makes everything taste better. Just take it from this Amazon reviewer who said, “Amazing… Words can’t describe it.” Another happy customer raved, “I love this air fryer! I don’t know how I managed without one for so long. I was always concerned about counter space but it now has a permanent spot in my kitchen. I think anything smaller than this sized basket is not enough. This is big enough to easily cook meals for 2-4 people.”
If there are two words dad loves hearing— they are wireless and grill. Give Dad a little more freedom around the grill or smoker. This thermometer has a wireless device he can carry around the house and yard so he can monitor the heat of his meat. It comes with preset temperatures for a variety of different meats like lamb, fish, and beef, so he won’t have to remember what temp he’s aiming for, either. He can also set an alarm that’ll alert him if the temp is too high to prevent over cooking. Next time Dad barbecues for company, he can spend more time mingling and less time hovering near the cooker! Still not sure? Take a look at the 22,000+ reviews!
Whether he’s a tech junkie or interested in home security — or maybe both — the Lockly Vision is a splurge-worthy gift that’ll also help keep the fam safe. Most notably (and unlike many competitors), this gadget is a smart lock and security camera in one. Owners can lock and unlock the door in multiple ways, including with a touchscreen key code, fingerprint recognition, or via the Lockly app, and they can even set a timed or one-time passcode to allow trusted people entry. For added peace of mind, this device streams and records video and has a two-way audio feature that allows users to speak with guests from anywhere via their phones. (What will they think of next?!)

For outdoorsy dads on your list, the Jack Wolfskin Men’s Go Hike Softshell Jacket will become his go-to layer for camping and hiking. This lightweight shell is water-, and wind-resistant, but unlike many waterproof jackets, it’s breathable and has stretch for comfort and full range of movement. It’s also easily packable, so he can stash it in his bag any time he’s traveling or exploring the Great Outdoors — after all, dads like being prepared!
There’s no escaping it— all dads young and old think they’re funny. Whether they are actually funny (we’re hoping for your sake) or only laugh at themselves, we appreciate the fact that they aren’t as bitchy as we are. So let’s amuse them with this 365-day calendar of DAD-ISMS— funny jokes, bad puns, and words of wisdom that *only* dad would use.
A pillow? For Dad? Yes, just listen. I (Scary Mommy editor here) gave my dad a new pillow for his birthday earlier this year, and he was…elated. Nobody had thought to get him a new pillow (except for his favorite daughter, obviously), and his were getting all lumpy and he thought that was NORMAL. Because, dads, ya know? I personally tested Nest Bedding’s Easy Breather Pillow, and as a super picky pillow person (say that three times), I love it. It’s the perfect amount of firm and soft, and it supports your head and neck with the foam fill.
Sure, you can gift dad his favorite beer on Father’s Day, but chances are he has a pretty nice supply of his own hidden somewhere. Take things to the next liquid level with this craft beer kit. It includes everything Dad could ever need to brew his own. You can help him or hop right out of his way, but in any case, you know he’ll be eager to share his batch with his friends.
One of the easiest ways to upgrade Dad’s home office? A Quartet monitor riser that’ll help ease the strain of tech neck. This adjustable riser will lift his monitor or laptop to eye level to help reduce craning, hunching, and the inevitable shoulder and neck pain that follows. If Dad has a tendency to put sticky notes all over his desk, he’ll appreciate that the Quartet features a built-in dry erase board, which slides under the riser when not in use. All in all, this glass-topped unit is smartly-designed, sleek, and much better looking than a haphazard stack of books.
Wait … Dad doesn’t have a JBL Flip yet? Well, you’re about to make his day. If the man of the hour loves to listen to music/podcasts inside and outside the house, this portable Bluetooth speaker is an absolute must. Not only does it play superior sound, it’s compact, lightweight, comes with its own protective carrying case, and — here’s the best part — this thing is waterproof. That means it’s perfect for beach days, vacations, or lounging poolside, plus Pops won’t have to panic if (when?) someone accidentally spills a drink on it. Not only is this a total dad essential, it’s a must-have for any kind of family. Of course, everyone wanting to use it may or may not work in Dad’s favor. It even comes in 11 different colors to suit his personal style. You can snag the JBL Flip on Amazon or at T-Mobile.
For health-forward dads (or those attempting to be more health-forward) the HEALBE GoBe3 watch offers multi-faceted tracking with no extra effort. This gadget monitors steps, heart rate, stress level, hydration, and sleep quality, and perhaps most impressively, it measures calorie intake and calories burned. One thing to note: The calorie counter can take several days of continual use in order to gauge each individual’s biochemistry accurately. (The recommendation is at least 22 consecutive hours of wear– it does need to be taken off for charging.) But even if he only uses this for the other markers, this sleek, easy-to-use watch is a step in a healthier direction.
Does the dad you love have a pain in the neck (aside from the kids? Kidding …) You can help alleviate those pesky aches and pains with Dr. Kerklaan’s Natural CBD Relief Cream. This fast-absorbing formula offers the comforting benefits of CBD combined with cooling relief from eucalyptus and peppermint essential oils. Bonus: It’s the perfect size for him to toss in his dopp kit, brief case, or gym bag.
Father’s Day Gifts From Daughters
“Daddy, can I have a [insert bill amount here].” If this sounds like something your dad/daughter’s father hears on the reg, this engraved money clip, which is made of stainless steel, is bound to be a hit. That is … if he has any cash left.
At least you’re telling it like it is (Dad will appreciate it). This funny card will make him laugh, but it’s also a humorous way of saying, “thanks for supporting me throughout the years.” It’s handmade in Virginia, so you know it’s made with love. P.S. They make a coffee mug with the same design on it, too.
Personalized Father’s Day Gifts
Pop’s heart will be warmed every time he checks the time. This watch is a unique stunner since it’s made of multi-colored wood, and the fact that it’s also lightweight and affordable is an added bonus. Choose any of the “custom” options for your choice of engraving on the back of this watch (a “Customize Now” button will appear on the right side of your screen) or choose from several heartwarming pre-written sentiments.
It’s a fact that dads love to nap (right?), so gift him with a customizable fleece blanket that’ll keep him cozy and warm his heart. Simply upload your fave photo and the “Wold’s Best Dad” text will be printed over it. It’s a thoughtful, unique gift that he’ll definitely cherish.
Personalized gifts are always the most meaningful, and there’s something truly special about customized glassware. These whiskey glasses from Rustic Route Designs — which are available on the charitable artisan site goimagine — are laser-engraved for longevity for an upscale look. (And, BTW, you can have them emblazoned with any design or sentiment you want.) Needless to say, Dad will love adding them to his barware collection, and they’re certainly suitable for display. Having bought a set myself, I can say that these are impressively high-quality, especially for the price (under $30 for 4!). But perhaps the best part is that each purchase on goimagine supports small businesses and profits go to charitable causes like Horizons for Homeless Children. All in all, it’s a worthy gift for anyone, even for those hard-to-buy-for dads!
Father’s Day Gifts For Grandpa
Everyone knows *that* Grandpa, and if the patriarch of your fam is “The man, the myth, the legend,” then this T-shirt is the perfect gift. Available in 5 different colors.
For the grandfather that can fix it all, this adorable keychain is a fantastic gift from the grandkids. He knows he’s handy, but the recognition for his young fans will be priceless.
Funny Father’s Day Gifts
For your favorite farter — er, father — who’s always making everyone crack a smile (even if he cuts the cheese). This microwave- and dishwasher-safe cup will become his new favorite, right alongside his “Coffee Makes Me Poop” mug.
This gift is as much for you and all of your kids and guests as it is for dad. Dad’s Bathroom Candle is a concealing candle that will work wonders in practically every single relationship. This large candle (almost 14 oz), is made in the USA with an all natural soy-wax blend and is meant to burn for 60-80 hours. Scent choices include Early Morning Mow, Firing Up The Grill and Saturday Morning Pancakes— all of which are way better than the smell we’re hoping to cover up. So let him think this is a gift for him, but smile inside knowing you’ll appreciate this money spent every-single-day.
There comes a time in every Dad’s (okay, person’s) life when they realize they just can’t handle liquor the way they used to. In the midst of several alcohol-themed gift ideas (heh), this duo of Cheers Restore and Cheers protect supplements would go great with Dad’s new booze. Yes, Cheers Restore is a literal hangover pill (well, supplement) that’s taken after imbibing to get ahead of the next day’s woes. But how does it work, you ask? “It works by reducing GABAa rebound, replacing lost vitamins, and supporting the liver, which has the function of breaking down alcohol’s toxic by-products,” the brand explains. As for Protect, it’s a “daily supplement designed to significantly increase glutathione levels, support overall liver health, and boost immunity.” (You’ll want to check out the Cheers Hydrate ORS Electrolyte Powder too, which is superior to the typical morning-after Gatorade.) Yeah, this gift is pretty funny, but according to reviewers, the stuff really works.Bonus: If Dad’s a Shark Tank fan, he may recognize these products, since they made an appearance.
Just what we always (never) needed, a book that gives the “laws” of being a dad. There are a lot of dads we all know that will get a good laugh in reading about these previously unwritten rules dads live by— like the one where the dad gets to control the thermostat (forever). Or the law that states all dads must joke and say things like “were you raised in a barn”? HA. Well you’re not laughing, but he will be. And new dads, it’s a guarantee they’ll be laughing out loud realizing they are not in this alone. These may not be actual laws to live by (thank god), but when dads get together and read over these 202 pages of unwritten rules of dad hood, they’ll surely appreciate the gift of a big laugh sesh.
Father’s Day Gifts From Kids
Perhaps the most satisfying sensory desk toy, Speks Blots are ideal for fidgety or stressed dads who work at a desk. They’re “silky soft,” ergonomically-shaped, and made of 100% silicone for a squeezable, stretchable, plunk-able distraction from the inevitable stressors of the daily grind. Depending on Dad’s destruction preferences, you can get ’em in 3 different shapes (the Splotch. Splatter, or Slammer) on the Speks website, or grab the Splotch (our favorite) right on Amazon.
For the father who can fix just about anything, gift him this multifunctional pocket tool so he can be prepared wherever he goes. This gadget includes a mini hammer, pliers, file, wire cutters, bottle opener, and more, making him a regular ol’ MacGyver. For the wood handle engraving, you can choose between 3 sweet sayings.
Dad may have the latest iPad, but he may have skimped on a quality case to protect his investment. The Dux Plus Duo — STM’s most popular iPad case — is “ultra-protective” with a polycarbonate panel and rubberised bracket for shock absorption. It’s also water-resistant, has an easy magnetic closure, doubles as a stand, and has a groove to stash an Apple Pen. Thanks to its price point, practicality, and usefulness in the midst of — er — accidents, this makes a great gift from the kiddos.
Whether he’s a smoothie sipper or a cocktail connoisseur, Dad will use his BlendJet 2 for whipping up blended concoctions anytime, anywhere. This powerful mini blender is rechargeable and cordless, which means it’s portable. Clean up is a breeze, too: Simply add water and a drop of soap, blend, rinse, and done. So whether he’s at work, the gym, the beach, or he’s hangin’ out by the campfire, Dad can play smoothie master/bartender/barista with this handy little gadget. (P.S. Snag him the Next-Gen Blending book for 50 recipe ideas he’ll be eager to try.)
Member price $39.99
The key to helping Dad drink more water? A really, really good water bottle. This 32-ounce pick from ECO Vessel features triple-insulation, meaning it can keep liquids hot for 14 hours or cold for a whopping 72 hours. But, the cool features don’t end there. Open the cap, and there’s a rubber-lined spout for comfortable drinking; then, the top unscrews to reveal a strainer, perfect for steeping loose-leaf tea or adding fruit for an infused beverage. There’s even a removable rubber bumper on the bottom to prevent dents. Yes, this bottle is as durable as it is useful (and comes with a 100 year warranty), which is great because Dad will be taking it everywhere. It’s available in 4 different sizes and a variety of colors.
Where did your dad come from? (Not being facetious, here …) Give pops a closer look into his DNA with the 23andMe Ancestry + Traits Service. (P.S. If he’s particularly health-conscious, the company’s 23andMe Health + Ancestry Service is also a great option.) This kit will help paint a picture of his ancestral background and he *may* even discover some long-lost relatives. Cool! As a bonus, it’s currently 10% off, just in time for Father’s Day.
Cool Father’s Day Gifts
If you ever wondered how dad’s showers take 3 minutes compared to your 30, it’s because they wash with an all-in-one product! (And clearly they aren’t seeing the shower as an escape from the kids.) This Father’s Day set features 2 solid cleansing bars (body wash, shampoo and conditioner all in one) and a mesh pouch which helps to enhance lather and provide an easy grip. Coming in scented or unscented, the coconut-derived formula includes shea butter and oat flour. Each bar is meant to last through 30-40 showers and is 100% biodegradable from packaging to product.
Bravo Sierra is the first military-native performance wellness company— all products are developed based on direct collaboration with a core community of over 1,000 U.S. active duty military service members. We love the message and love the product. All the guys in your dad squad will, too.
Sometimes we worry about dad more than he worries about himself. One mantra being, “drink more water”! Well, since he loves his gadgets, we’re combining the need for hydration with a smart device, that way he has to finally commit to daily water goals. This super cool water bottle, available in 5 colors actually glows when he needs a reminder to drink. The soft grip, BPA-free silicone bottle has a finger loop for carrying and fits in most cup holders or backpacks.
Give Dad the highest compliment that’s carved in wood. An Amazon Handmade pick, this “The Grillfather” cutting board is crafted in Oklahoma and comes in a variety of sizes and wood tones that you can customize. There’s also optional add-ons like coasters, wood oil, and/or a display stand for a complete Father’s Day gift that’s as cool as it is useful.
Got a cool dad, not a regular dad? Then he definitely needs a pair of ultra-modern shades. SPY Optic sunglasses don’t just look cool, they’re technologically advanced; according to the site, “Our world-renowned Happy™ Lens Tech is the only patented therapeutic lens on the market to not only enhance color and contrast, but is also scientifically tuned to boost mood and alertness.” Whoa. We’re partial to the highly-reviewed Discord style (you can choose from a variety of frame and lens colors, as well), but there are plenty of other silhouettes to complement Dad’s classically good looks.
Father’s Day Gifts From Wife
The Proraso Vintage Gino Tin Gift Set is ideal for the gentleman who grooms on the reg. He’ll appreciate the nostalgic vibe of this collection, which is fitting since he has such classically good looks. The included products are made with eucalyptus and menthol fragrance, which is super soothing for that delicate (but manly) facial skin.
Is the man in your life a hot sleeper? Treat him (and, if you’re sharing a bed, yourself) to this set of True Temp sheets from Sleep Number. Made of a cotton blend, this set features a smooth sateen weave, a SmartFit fitted sheet (it secures at the corners so they don’t pop off), and will keep your body at a comfortable temperature, even on those sticky summer nights. (The majority of 5,700+ site reviewers agree.) They’re available in 6 colors and each set includes a fitted sheet, top sheet, and two pillowcases. And remember, the gift of a good night’s sleep is the gift that keeps on giving. (P.S. They’re also 20% off until 6/7!)
20% off until 6/7
In the name of giving the comfiest night’s sleep to your fave MVP (Most Valuable Pa), Sleep Number’s True Temp pillows will help him keep a cool head all night long (even if he has teenagers … heh, heh.) Each of the brand’s 3 True Temp designs contain layers of foam so he can sink right in, but we’re particularly fans of the Ultimate Pillow, which contains 3 removable pieces so sleepers can customize the loft. Feeling jealous? Get one for yourself, too — each pillow is buy one, get one 50% off.
Even a man’s man needs a decent umbrella in inclement weather, and this pick is as hardcore as it gets (by umbrella standards, of course). Designed by a meteorologist who was tired of umbrellas that flipped inside out, these are designed to resist heavy rains and wind forces up to 55 MPH. Despite its heavy-duty protection, this pick is lightweight for easy traveling (that said, there’s a smaller travel version, too). It’s available in a handful of colors and is so useful, you may want to pick one up for yourself, too.
For the dads with a full head of hair (or the ones that aren’t quote ready to let their wisps go), this Hair Kit from Hair Craft Co. will have them looking and feeling great. This kit comes with everyday essential like, Gel Pomade, Hair Clay, and Sea Salt Spray. Because each can be used to achieve a different look, dad can easily switch things up day-to-day! Trust us, he’ll love it.
For the man with a sweet tooth who could use a side of chill, Lord Jones’ Old Fashioned Hemp-Derived Gum Drops are a special treat. Each gummy contains 20 mg of broad-spectrum CBD for relaxing vibes, especially after a long workday. The classic Old Fashioned drops contain strawberry and lemon flavors, but there are lots of other varieties — like wild berry, blood orange, and white peach — to suit his taste. PSA: Just make sure he doesn’t eat ’em all at once.
If your fave tequila fan hasn’t tried Løs Sundays, now’s the time to introduce him. This award-winning, 100% blue water agave tequila is sustainably farmed and is gaining traction in the liquor world. It’s available in Blanco, Reposado, and Coconut so Dad can use it to mix up some specialty cocktails or sip it on the rocks. If he’s feeling nice, he may even share (he better share).
Stepdad Father’s Day Gifts
For the stepdad who loves like a dad-dad, this cool sign is a thoughtful Father’s Day gift. This Amazon Handmade pick has several customizable options; you can add the name of your stepdad and choose to add your own definition, and decide whether you want the photos to have color, black and white, or sepia tones. Either way, this important figure will be touched by how much you care about him. (Just note: This print comes unframed, so you can choose whether to add your own.)
Know an adventurous dad or stepdad who’s always getting himself into a mess? The sporty, water-resistant NIXON Staple is built for all his shenanigans — er– adventures. A soft silicone band is extra comfortable to wear, and a digital face allows him to tell the time at a glance. Basically, it’s the perfect accessory for any dad who likes to work out, hike, surf, or swim, or has a tendency to *accidentally* fall into the pool.
Cheap Father’s Day Gifs ($20 and under)
In this hysterical book by comedy king Jimmy Fallon, all the dad animals try to teach their babies to say “Dada” first. Unfortunately, all the babies just respond with their animal sounds! It’s cute and silly, and first time dads will get a kick out of annoying the wifey with this story. The board book style makes it easy for toddlers to “help” Dad read along. Write a sweet note inside (you can make it from your LO), and it’s ready to go. There’s a Mama book, too, so you can fight about what word BB says first and what book they like better. Let’s hope baba wins so neither of you gets to gloat for the rest of eternity.
Don’t let the fairy on the front of this tin fool you: Jumby Beauty’s Warm as Toast balm is tough on aches and pains (we know because we’ve tried it). It’s made with potent, organic ingredients like ginger, clove, and calendula oil to cool and tingle away muscle stiffness and strain without leaving a sticky residue or chemical odor behind. Any dad who’s prone to sore muscles will want to keep this stuff in his gym bag or on his bedside table.
Looking to treat Dad to a new brew but not sure what to choose? We gotchu. Try Stone Beunaveza Salt & Lime Lager for a refreshing, slightly citrusy drink that’s perfect for kicking back in the warm weather. Not only will he enjoy the flavors of malt and lime (add a fresh wedge for an extra kick), let’s be real — the label’s pretty cool, too. You can order the San Diego-based beer online, but it’s also widely available nationwide — check the site’s locator to find a store near you, which is especially convenient if you’re in a pinch! (Don’t worry, we won’t tell.)
Dad will drool over this gourmet hot sauce made with black truffle oil, and after he tastes it on his wings, he’ll probably dub himself “Truff Daddy.” Red chili peppers are blended with black truffle and agave for an earthy, yet sweet-and-spicy sauce that will bring a dad to his happy place. We know this condiment is a bit expensive, but it’s a special treat that Dad wouldn’t buy for himself. Plus, nearly 10,000 5-star reviews and bestseller status will assure you that’s it’s worth the price.
