    3. A crewneck sweatshirt that is super comfortable but still looks nice so he can just throw it on and go on with his day.

    4. An iPhone dongle case aka a super-genius invention that will keep his dongle in a safe place so he'll know exactly where it is at all times so he doesn't end up losing it...again. I can't have the only dad that's lost about seven of this at this point. It has to stop.

    5. Anatomy of A Song, a book any music lover will find fascinating as they learn how some of their favorite songs came to be.

    6. A Hydroflask cooler cup designed to be both a can or bottle cooler *and* a cup just by switching the top sleeve. So it's basically two cool gifts he can use in one.

    7. A total beard care kit filled with everything he needs to keep his facial hair looking in tip-top shape and avoid any ~hairy~ situations that come with an unkept beard.

    8. Or a wet shave kit if he's more of a no-facial-hair-kind of dad. This kit will make him look super ~sharp~ and also feel super fancy. Don't be surprised if he starts walking around with his pinky in the air.

    9. A printed dress shirt perfect for the dad who doesn't like to shop for himself so he has def been wearing the same three nice shirts for too long. This will be a perfect addition to his wardrobe as it doesn't need to be ironed after washing.

    10. Rosetta Stone Language Software perfect for any dad who's been saying he's been wanting to learn a new language forever. He'll get everything he needs to succeed right on his phone.

    11. A coffee subscription service — it delivers globally curated, freshly roasted beans or grounds from around the world right to his door every month. This means that he'll still be thinking about the great gift you gave him months down the line. Now, who's the favorite sibling? You, it's totally you.

    12. Or a subscription to Trade Coffee, which delivers beans from roasters in the US based on his specific tastes. He'll be saying, "Thanks a ~latte~" for the gift for months.

    13. A Sony portable Bluetooth speaker designed to be small and waterproof so he can take it on all his adventures (including camping, hiking, etc.) and bring the dad rock right along with him.

    14. A baseball game you'll ~hit a home run~ with, because this gift turns one of his favorite sports into a fun game he can bring out at every game night.

    15. A bottle of honey with a kick that'll make anything he puts it on taste like the ~bee's knees~.

    16. A wireless fast-charging stand so he doesn't have to fumble around looking for his charging cord that fell behind the nightstand for approximately the 100th time.

    17. A Bearaby knit weighted blanket constructed from organic cotton, so it's an eco-friendly (and beautiful) way to help your dad reduce anxiety and get deeper sleep. Just know that when he grabs this and sits down in his chair and says, "I will not fall asleep," he most def will fall asleep two seconds later.

    18. A scratch-off poster for the movie buff dad so he can brag about how many movies he's seen. This is also great for the casual movie-watcher who spends more time deciding what movie to watch than actually watching the movie!

    19. A set of granite whiskey chilling stones specifically designed to chill alcohol without diluting it or adding flavors or impurities, meaning he can enjoy a stiff drink the way it's supposed to be.

    20. What I Love About Dad, a customizable book you fill out before you give it to him with all the reasons why you love him. *Cue the tears*

    21. An Always pan designed to replace eight pieces of cookware, and look good while doing it. This is perfect for any father who loves to cook but doesn't want to spend a lot of time doing the dishes (which is probably every single one TBH).

    22. A classic jean jacket he can wear for years and years because it will never go out of style, just like his dad jokes. Dad jokes are timeless.

    23. A Captain America waffle maker because every dad is basically their own version of a superhero, and they need a fun breakfast food to prove it.

    24. A handmade skinny necktie he can wear proudly to every nice event he's invited to and tell everyone who compliments on it that his favorite child bought it for him.

    25. A stainless-steel guitar pick with a dad joke so good, it's impossible that he won't love it.

    Hand with the guitar pick in the middle that says, "I couldn't pick a better Dad"

    26. An crewneck T-shirt he might think he doesn't need...until he starts wearing it and realizes that it gets softer with each wear, and now it's his favorite shirt he'll wear at least once a week.

    27. A personalized pizza grilling crate he will love — ~crust~ me. The crate has both tools and flavor enhancers that will help him turn his grill into a pizzeria that makes crisp and delicious homemade 'za. I'm getting hungry just thinking about it. Mmmmm.

    28. A Legacybox that'll make it so easy for him to turn all of his old photos and videos of you growing up digitally so you can all treasure them forever.

    29. A smartphone mount so he can keep Google maps up while he drives and *hopefully* end up at the right place at the right time...granted that he actually listens to the GPS instead of just insisting that he knows "a shortcut."

    30. A whiskey decanter for the dad who appreciates a nice after-dinner drink that shows off how worldly he is.

    31. A super-cool duffel bag that actually starts out as a garment bag, so he only has to pack one bag with everything he needs *and* not worry about his suits or other clothes getting wrinkled during the journey.

    32. A breakfast sandwich maker that'll make it *so* easy for him to craft a delicious sandwich in minutes without having to leave the house. *Chef's kiss*

    33. A casual button-down shirt designed to give him a sleek look and show off whatever "dad bod" he's rocking.

    34. A funny mug to fully cement you with the title of "favorite child." It's a hard job, but someone's gotta do it, right?

    White coffee mug that says, "Dear Dad: Thanks for putting up with a spoiled, ungrateful, mess, bratty child like my sibling. Love. Your favorite."

    35. A USA beer cap map for the microbrew lover who insists on drinking local. This will give him a place to display all the amazing brews he's tried.

    36. A shearling-lined slipper because the ones he's been wearing nonstop around the house the past year have probably seen better days, and his feet deserve a nice new pair to stay comfortable.

    Slip-on slippers with brown suede upper

    37. A set of percale sheets made from cotton so not only are they breathable but they also get softer with every wash. Your dad will be so thankful to have nice and comfy sheets to use every night.

    38. An air fryer designed to help him grill, roast, and bake up some delicious food in minutes. It uses "rapid air technology" to cook food evenly and make crispy fries, tasty veggies, and more without using any hot oil.

    39. And some chili sauce with a unique flavor of spicy, savory, sweet, and garlic aromas that together form one delicious sauce he may want to add to every single dinner he has.

    40. A Skylight Frame digital frame guaranteed to bring a smile to his face as it rotates through all the pictures. Plus, you can give your family the email address to send photos directly to the frame so dad can see updates on how much those cute grandkids are growing every day (granddogs count too!).

    41. A key organizer that'll turn a heavy and loud keyring into a compact device that looks like a Swiss Army knife.

    42. A wine decanter he'll feel extra fancy using as it aerates his wine to make it taste even better.

    43. A HyperChiller that can chill freshly brewed coffee – or other liquids, such as wine (!!) – in a minute without watering it down.

    44. A set of six coasters with '80s mistaken lyrics on them — or to your dad, the lyrics he's probably been singing for the past 40 years.

    45. A Star Wars cheese board you won't have to ~force~ him to use because it's just so cool that he'll want to show it off to everyone he knows.

    46. A pair of shredder claws — he might feel like Wolverine when he uses them to shred meat in seconds. Let's just hope he doesn't start to think his superpowers expand to other things as well—sorry, he still can't run as fast as the Flash.

    47. A pair of printed shorts with such a fun pattern he should have no ~problama~ wearing these all summer long as they show off just the kind of person he is.

    48. And a baseball stadium blueprint that'll help you really hit your gift ~out of the park~. It will be hard to top this one, but I believe in you.
