Haven’t decided what to get for Father’s Day? The key is to hone in on the type of dad you’re shopping for. Sports dad, traveling dad, a dad who is always on top of the latest trends and fashion, or even a sentimental dad who is fond of the memories. Regardless of the type of father figure you have there’s a gift that suits them the best.
Give Dad some of the best sleep of his life with our pick for the best sleep mask of the year. It features a genius nose wire, so it blocks all of the light. The mask is soft on the eyes and comfortable on the head, and it never so much as budged during the night, no matter our sleep position.
There are lot of online photo books over the years and hands-down, this was the easiest to create. Complete with loads of customization options — from cover options and paper types to debossing and dust jackets — the book’s design process was not only intuitive, but also stylish and imaginative. Dad will love the result which is a professional-looking bound, hardback book with up to 100 pages of your family photos.
This one is divided into three compartments, and in addition to being able to accommodate a 15-inch laptop, it’s got loads of key design details you’ll want. Think of a top handle, hanging clasps, a USB port and adjustable straps, not to mention a ton of pockets for storing all your things. Boasting a 4.8-star rating, the backpack’s highlight is a padded mesh backing that will keep you as cool as can be, no matter how many times your flight is delayed. Did we mention it’s less than $30 right now? Done and done.
Yeti makes a lot of dad-approved gear, and that includes tough-as-nails drinkware. Case in point: This stainless-steel water bottle with double-wall insulation that keeps your hot drinks piping hot and your cold drinks icy cold. In addition to us naming it the best water bottle of the year, the cup is dishwasher-friendly, can fit in most car and boat cup holders and can be monogrammed or customized with dad’s favorite MLB team.
A perfect example of good old-fashioned fun, cornhole is the perfect game for family parties, tailgates or spending time together on a long weekend. This set has more nearly 13,000 positive Amazon reviews and comes with a carrying case and eight all-weather bags.
Take his pizza game to the next level with Ooni, the maker of portable, gas-powered ovens that can churn out fire-cooked pizzas in just 60 seconds. We love the ultra-portable Koda ovens, which come in 12- and 16-inch formats and have folding legs, making them easy to transport. The brand offers a slew of great accessories too, from pizza peels and stones to cutter wheels and infrared thermometers, all of which can be found here. The best part? This is a gift for you, too!
There’s luggage and then there’s Away. Immediately elevate Dad’s travel gear with this hard-shell carry-on, which we named the best carry-on of the year. It’s perfectly sized for the overhead bin, has 360-degree spinner wheels, an interior compression system and comes with a handy laundry bag. With more than 1,800 positive reviews, this suitcase is made to last — and it comes in eight colors, from neutral (navy) to fun (purple). Add a built-in USB charger for an extra 20 bucks.
Give Dad’s grilling game a real upgrade with this curated box from Porter Road. Included is two dry-aged steaks (which are either Ribeyes or New York Strips), two pounds of burger patties, and two pounds of bratwurst links. All you need to do is fire up the grill.
Solve all of Grandpa’s charging needs with this sleek wireless option from Nomad that can load up three Qi devices — including those from Apple, Samsung, Amazon and Google — at once. Delivering an official MFi MagSafe charge at up to 15W, Base One comes in two colorways and can be upgraded to a Max with an Apple watch charger.
There’s a reason those power washing videos go viral! Add some zen to Grandpa’s outdoor routine with this electric washer from Ryobi — trust us, there’s nothing more mesmerizing than watching mildew disappear from patio furniture or stripping oil stains from a driveway with a power washer. With more than 2,000 positive reviews, this compact option has a telescoping handle and durable frame wheels, and it stands upright when not in use, making it easy to store.
