Father’s Day is June 21st, otherwise known as the roughest shopping day of the year. Don’t get us wrong, Dad deserves an awesome gift for all the great things he gave you. But let’s be honest — buying for your father is often a chore.
Your gift has to take into account what he already has, what he wants, what he’ll use, and what will actually elicit a smile. And if it also sends the message that he was a pretty great Dad and you feel lucky to have him...well, that’s bonus points.
To help streamline the process, we’ve assembled 40 cool Father’s Day ideas into this handy gift guide. And on top of that, you can also get an additional 15 percent off when you use the code GIFTFORDAD15 during checkout. On top of the fun gift, he’ll also give you props for being smart.
And a hint to all you dads out there — send this link to your kids with a couple of helpful suggestions. They’ll appreciate your usual well-reasoned guidance. As always.
For the well-groomed Dad
It’s a collection worthy of The Sailor Man himself, a three-step shave regimen of pre-shave oil, shave cream, and a post-shave lotion that’ll clean up the scruffiest of sea dogs. Well, blow me down!
The beard deserves all the treatment Dad gives the hair on his head, so this all-natural, chemical-free assortment featuring a 3-in-1 beard wash cleaner, a beard balm conditioner and some beard oil to maintain a manly mane that holds, feels soft and looks well-groomed.
No more unwanted cuts and scraggly trimmings now that this personal neck groomer with 3 interconnected razor strips and two handles carefully shaves the back of Dad’s neck for a quick, fresh cleanup.
After his shave, Dad can slap on this light, invigorating fragrance. It couples just a touch of citrus, including fresh lemon, grapefruit, and sweet tangerine, with natural scents like oakmoss, ivy leaves, sandalwood, and even a touch of honey for a fresh, clean aroma.
If Dad enjoys a richer scent, this Tommy Bahama variety brings notes of bergamot, nutmeg, and cedar to the table in a warm, spicy, masculine scent that matures — just like good old Dad.
For the kitchen wizard
Forged from ultra-durable 3CR13 stainless steel, these Sukasu Osami blades are the true kitchen weapons any well-armed chef demands. The 8-inch chef knife, 5-inch utility knife and 3.5-inch paring knife will have Dad effortlessly slicing and dicing ingredients with ultra-flexible blades built to last.
Born in Japan under the philosophy of creating instinctively, this compact coffee dripper set made of heat-resistant glass lets you do just that — simply put your coffee filter in the dripper, pour hot water, then watch Dad’s steaming hot cup of joe materialize.
The FrankOne Brewer uses its vacuum “VacTec” process to pull water through a bed of ground coffee, extracting more flavor with less bitterness and acidity in a shorter amount of time. Dad also gets to sample FrankCoffee, specially designed for the FrankOne, with a chocolatey bite and a mellow, yet lightly citrusy aftertaste.
For the grillhound
Made of silicone, ultra-high strength Dayan aramid fiber and polyester cotton, these heat-resistant gloves are the perfect protection from the dangers of high heat cooking, baking or grilling. They’re flexible enough to hold kitchen utensils, yet strong enough to withstand temperatures up to 1,472°F. Let’s see Dad not find these useful.
The Connect-it set features magnetic handles that clamp on to high-quality stainless steel spatula and fork attachments that can also be teamed up and configured into tongs or a handy server. Instead of arranging utensils like John Wick’s weapons case, now Dad will have all the tools in one resourceful handle.
These unique slide and serve skewers prevent food from falling off or turning on the grill so everything cooks evenly and in place. They’ve even got fun steer and fish motifs, so no matter whether you’re grilling shrimp, beef, chicken or veggies, Dad will also look good doing it.
When Dad doesn’t want to fire up the giant grill, the Otto Grill Lite can still serve up steakhouse-quality steaks quick and easy with a delicious, crunchy sear that seals in juices and flavor.

Speaking of pizza, this modular oven is not only pizza-ready, but capable of handling BBQ griddle work or even a lava stone cook, all in one unit. Dad just has to change out the cooking sets depending on the meal -- and this versatile, portable multi-purpose oven and grill does the rest.
For the true grill master, the GrillEye Pro Plus monitors up to 8 different temperatures at once, so no matter what Dad’s cooking or smoking (or both,) it’ll be perfect — and you’ll never have to guess. The unit also syncs to an app via WiFi or Bluetooth, so just set preferences, fire up a smartphone and cook — even when Dad isn’t standing right in front of his grill.
And when it’s finally time to clean up, the Q-Swiper uses its bristle-free, wire-free method to safely wipe away grease and grime so the barbecue is all set for a clean, healthy grill next time. With 65 cleaning wipes, this will mean the end of Dad’s grungy old grill brush...and good riddance.
