fathers day gift guide

With Father’s Day just around the corner (as a reminder, it’s coming up this Sunday), there’s just enough time to get in those last-minute Father’s Day gifts! As we’ve noted before, buying your dad a gift is challenging because it’s such a personal matter. Maybe your dad needs a coffee-table book or a tech gift. Maybe he loves to cook. Maybe he hates it! In the spirit of finding the right thing for your dad, we went in search of all the best Father’s Day gifts on Amazon for every different kind of father.

 

For the dad who likes to keep his cold ones ice cold – Yeti Roadie 20 Cooler

Everyone that owns a YETI knows that they are the best coolers in the world, no doubt about it. 

 

For the well groomed dad – Philips Norelco Multigroom All-In-One Series 3000

“I have had a few very good beard trimmers over the years, but this one by far is the best. As soon as I started using it, I could notice the quality of the feel and cut. Very precise and smooth. Furthermore, it has millimeter settings that are ideal for any beard length. I love that there is no need to oil the blades, which was always a hassle with the other trimmers. The charge lasts a very long time. I used it twice a week and the charge lasts for months. For my needs, it is the perfect trimmer. I am delighted with it.”

 

For The Culinary Dad – Global G-2-8 inch, 20cm Chef’s Knife

Global knives are made in Japan, in an explicit homage to samurai warriors. The G-2 has an unusual dimpled handle that feels like a bicycle grip. This same handle is hollow, which explains the knife’s mere 7.84 ounces. These attributes — samurai-inspired and hollow — mean the whole thing feels like it disappears into your hand when you use it. And when you’re done with it, it’s forgivingly easy to clean and handsome to display.

 

For The Dad Who Likes To Be Comfortable – Brookstone Nap Robe

"The Nap Robe is an immersive experience. It is plush and machine washable. Its fabric is sewn from satin and angel skin. Imagine a bed on wheels, but then imagine that bed as a robe, and that is the Nap Robe. For the past six months, it has been the single best thing for my sleep hygiene. Instead of curling up in bed with my laptop, I can sit at my desk in my Nap Robe. It’s a transition point between the worlds of the living and sleeping, my own personal Sandman."

 

For the dad who needs his coffee at an optimal 137 degrees – Ember Temperature Control Travel Mug

How futuristic is this thermos? He probably doesn’t need something that keeps his drink to an exact temperature (you adjust how hot you want to keep it by turning the bottom of the tumbler), but he’ll certainly want it.

 

For the serious about grilling dad – Cuisinart Deluxe 14-Piece Grill Set

A grill master can’t do squat without his tools. These will do the trick far better than the mismatched tongs he’s working with now.

 

For the dad whose Sunday routine doesn’t require leaving bed – BedShelfie Bedside Shelf

Dads whose idea of a perfect day means lying in bed will enjoy this shelf, which clamps onto a bed frame and is ideal for holding a computer (or snacks or books). Makes for a great makeshift nightstand for small spaces, too.

 

For the dad who’s looking for the lastest technology in pain relief – ProSource Acupressure Mat

Naturally reduce muscle tension, and back pain by simply laying on the mat daily for 10-30 minutes. Acupressure releases endorphins that block pain, and helps relax the muscles in your back, neck and feet.

 

For culinary-tech dads – Drop Scale Smart Kitchen Scale and Recipe App

The Drop smart food scale makes measuring cups a thing of the past. Simply pull up a recipe and the app will let you know when you’ve added enough of each ingredient to the bowl. Another cool feature? “The Drop Scale will even calculate how to compensate with other ingredients when you make mistakes (add too much flour, for instance, and the Drop Scale will scale up the butter and sugar so your cookies turn out just fine).

 

For the dad who wants to keep an eye on the pets — and feed them – Petcube Bites HD Pet Camera and Treat Dispenser

Petcube Bites is the most advanced HD pet camera for monitoring and treating your pet. You can toss treats, see in clear HD video, chat using two-way talk, and see with night vision. From the app on your phone, spy on your pet, and save them from loneliness and separation anxiety. Have peace of mind that your furkid and home are safe.

 

For tinkering dads –
Vilros Raspberry Pi 3 Retro Arcade Gaming Kit With 2 Classic USB Gamepads

The Raspberry Pi is a microcomputer board that dads can use to design games, learn programming, and make websites. It won’t do much on its own, though, so buy him a kit with everything he’ll need to get started. This one has accessories for re-creating classic Nintendo games.

 

For the single-origin-only dad – Chemex Glass Coffee Maker

If dad’s a coffee lover, retire the Mr. Coffee. True devotees swear by the pour-over joe brewed by the Chemex.

 

For the dad who’s convinced that his neighbors are swiping his UPS packages – Ring Video Doorbell 2

Next-level security and convenience with the all-new Video Doorbell 2. Armed with motion-activated alerts, 1080HD video and two-way talk, Ring lets you watch over your home and answer the door from anywhere. Day or night, rain or shine – you’re always home.

For the dad who wants to home-brew – Home Brew Ohio Complete Beer Equipment Kit

This starter kit comes with all of the basic equipment your dad will need to brew his own beer. Bonus points if you also gift him the ingredients, so you two can brew his first batch together.

 

For gamer dads – Logitech G502 Proteus Spectrum RGB Tunable Gaming Mouse

PC-gaming dads will love this programmable mouse with more than 2,500 positive reviews on Amazon. We were won over by this one: “The software that comes with it is fantastic and makes it very easy to customize it for any game. It can even scan your computer for installed games and auto-program the buttons based on the game. I was very weary about spending so much money on a mouse, as I am a weekend-warrior FPS player; it was worth every penny.”

If your dad golfs, the only thing he’ll love more than the game itself is telling his friends all about the secret to improving his swing. With the Sklz Tempo Trainer, he’ll not only be espousing the miraculous improvements out on the green, but maybe also throwing in a footnote about his whip-smart kid that got it for him.

 

Between work calls and texting you gifs and emojis, it’s easy for dad to lose track of how much juice is left on his smartphone. Anker Portable Charger combine style and function, stuffing up to two times the extra battery power inside a sleek design.

The California Car Duster does a great job for what I call “tune up” cleaning. It takes me just a couple of minutes to clean the whole car and it looks beautiful again. It will not remove bugs or rain streaks, but if you use your car only on sunny days, this brush does an amazingly quick job to make it sparkle just as if you had it just polished.

This is the last razor your dad will ever need. The blades cost 9¢ each and last a week. For $4.50, I get a year’s worth of shaves. How much do you spend on Fusion cartridges in a year? 

The Merkur Futur provides an excellent shave quality because you are really able to experiment with how aggressive your razor should be for the type of facial hair that you have. And unlike most other adjustable razors that I’ve tried, this razor was built with tons of love. The craftsmanship of merkur always impresses me. This safety razor has a decently long handle and weighs a good amount. The balance is very good if you in place your fingers on the handle where the indentation is. The grip is subpar but that is the sacrifice you need to make for a beautiful chrome specimen. This is a fantastic razor for all levels of wet shavers
