    39 Father's Day Gifts You Can't Go Wrong With

    Gifts for every dad, even the ones that "don't need anything".

    We hope you love the products we recommend! Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A spice gift set for the dad who's an un-grill-ievable cook but wants to take his spice game to the next level.

    amazon.com

    The set includes six spices in the following flavors: grill master, smokey southwest, citrus pepper, fresh bay, and peppered habanero. The spices are handcrafted and made in the US.

    Promising review: "I bought this product for my dad for fathers day, and he was so happy to receive it! This product comes with a range of wonderful flavors of spices for both people who love spicy things AND sweeter things. I would buy this product again, but this time for myself because I loved it so much." —Julia Perez

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99.

    2. A travel bean bag toss game with storage for the bean bags in the back, so he can take it to every single tailgate he goes to (even if he's tailgating a high school theater production).

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This is the perfect alternative to the big, cumbersome cornhole game. My kids love it, and so do we. The set up simple, and it works perfectly. It has a really nice place in the back to store the bean bags. I think every kid should have one of these." —Watson

    Get it from Amazon for $26.70.

    3. A 22-liter cooler backpack he can fill with drinks and snacks for an epic picnic in the park or at the beach.

    4. A book any music lover will find fascinating as they learn how some of their favorite songs came to be.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I enjoyed reading this book especially when combined with the Spotify playlist. I learned quite a bit about the song writing and recording process of making a hit recording. It was a good trip down memory lane and also introduced me to some artists I wasn't that familiar with. A well written book that has something for any music fan." —Gene Herritz

    Get it from Amazon for $11.64.

    5. A wet shave kit that'll 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.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This comes packaged nicely. Everything is snug and not rattling around the box. My husband had a beard for 5+ years, and after he used the clippers, he used this to get a clean shave. It worked wonders! He usually has really bad razor burn no matter what kind of razor he uses. This left him clean and bump free! The aftershave helped a lot! I also like that it doesn't have a really strong smell, but it still smells really nice." —Lexi Vaughan

    Get it from Amazon for $49.90.

    6. A tin filled with cookies and brownies for a delicious gift he can enjoy for a couple days. (Hopefully he shares at least *one* with you, but I can't make any promises.)

    Cheryl's Cookies

    The tin includes two frosted cookies, two peanut butter chocolate chunk cookies, two lemon burst cookies, two butter pecan cookies, two red, white, and blueberry cookies, a caramel peanut butter brownie, a blondie walnut brownie, and a chocolate fudge brownie. Okay, now I'm hungry.

    Get it from Cheryl's Cookies for $39.99. (Enter the promo code CCOBUZZ15 to get 15% off sitewide and enjoy gourmet cookies, cakes, snacks and more!)

    Life is Good

    Get it from Life is Good for $28 (available in sizes S-XXXL and in five colors).

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

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This is now a staple for my kitchen. How I cooked without it before, I'll never know. It makes the best vinaigrette ever, quick pan sauces for pork, and is an unexpected zip in dozens of dishes. Does it come in gallons? I have given it a gift several times, and everyone gets hooked." —Martha Ronemus

    Get it from Amazon for $8.48.

    9. 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.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I bought four of these chargers as gifts for three iPhones and one Samsung Galaxy. It's been a few months now and everyone really likes their chargers. The favorite feature is being able to lean the phone and charge it while it's "standing" so the screen is easily viewed. It does charge through the phone case. It has a classy cloth type cover that looks nice on a desk or nightstand and keeps your phone from slipping. It's a nice upscale charger." —Lo Ko

    Get it from Amazon for $39.95.

    10. A scratch-off poster for the movie buff 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!

    Uncommon Goods

    Promising review: "I got this as a gift for my husband. He is a movie lover and has seen most of these movies by himself at one point or another. He's always trying to get me to watch movies with him, and I thought this would be a perfect way for me to do so. He loved this, and it was by far his favorite gift. We have already started with watching and scratching off two movies. This is a good excuse for us to sit down together, after the kids are asleep and have a little date night. Words honestly can't describe how much I love this gift." —Ashley

    Get it from Uncommon Goods for $15.

    11. A sophisticated watch that also counts sleep and activity so he can feel super high tech while still looking super sophisticated.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I love that my HR Steel not only tracks my sleep and activities, but it doesn't look like the alien sport-trackers. I love the analog watch look of what is actually a very sophisticated device!" —Leslie D Taylor

    Get it from Amazon for $59.99.

    12. A summer sausage and cheese gift box – the guy who tells the best ~cheesy~ jokes will have a gouda time eating this.

    Get it from Hickory Farms for $40.

    13. An eyeglass holder so ~on the nose~, he won't be able to stop laughing when he opens the gift. But he'll find it useful when he knows exactly where his glasses are in the morning.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I purchased this holder for my husband. He puts his glasses on the night stand when he goes to bed, and they usually end up falling on the floor or getting misplaced. This holder is great. It's made of heavy wood, so it's not light weight. It holds glasses perfectly and is such a nice gift for someone who wears glasses." —Leslie R.

    Get it from Amazon for $6.

    14. A Moose Munch popcorn tin because the best ~pop~ deserves something really special and delicious—and this is it.

    Harry & David

    15. A customizable book you fill out before you give it to him with all the reasons why you love him. *Cue the water works*

    Amazon

    Promising review: "My dad LOVED it. I mean what do you give to someone who is turning 80? So, I gave it to him, and he read the whole thing while everyone else was chatting away. I could see his face, (a guy who rarely smiles) and could see his lips begin to curl. His eyes were fixed on the pages. every now and then he would smile and chuckle. I asked him if he liked it and he said with his Spanish accent, 'I'm gonna take it to my grave!' Deep." —Purring Kitty

    Get it from Amazon for $8.54.

    16. 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.

    Amazon

    Get it from Amazon for $27.99.

    17. A coffee subscription service that delivers globally curated, freshly roasted beans or grounds from around the world right to his door every month.

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99.

    19. A handmade spartan knife block designed to truly ~cut~ it in the kitchen. How can you not smile when you look at this?

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I LOVE this holder. It's sturdier than I thought it would be. My husband and I cook together, and this guy adds a lot of joy. I didn't need to adjust any of the holes for my knives, so was happy about that." —Alison J

    Get it from Amazon for $99.95.

    20. A pair of sunglasses he will feel like *such* a cool dad in. Moms have been cool for years, but it's time for dads to accept that they can be cool too.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I love this decanter! It arrived on time and in one piece. It's very light and feels like it could break easily. But it looks amazing and will hold a good amount of alcohol. I was able to poor an entire 750 ml bottle into it with no problem. It also comes with a funnel which is very helpful. It's a really fun piece of functional art. It makes a great addition to any office." —Hannah

    Amazon

    Promising review: "My husband wanted this coffee for his Father's Day gift. I wasn't interested in trying it because I'm not all about super caffeinated beverages.

    Amazon

    Not only does the stand stabilize the phone and act as a tripod, but it also has a battery pack attached to keep his phone charged while using it. Now, that's pretty neat.
