Promising review: "Mike's Hot Honey may be my favorite new condiment! I love the simplicity of the ingredients, no processed crap here. I've been putting this hot honey on my pizza and also on roasted Brussels sprouts! A little drizzle goes a long way so I think it's a great value for the money. I have a feeling I'll continue to find more foods to put this honey on. Don't overthink; just get it – it's that good." —Balkanista

Promising review: "I got this for a jigsaw puzzle crazed friend for her birthday and she loved it! She glued it together afterwards and had me write a note on it (props to her for being creative, cool, and sweet). There's no way I'd ever try to do this myself, but if you, or someone you know, loves a challenge, try doing this puzzle. 5/5 stars." —Nate

Promising review: "Fantastic headphones! They stay charged FOREVER! I had them fully charged and used them for an hour on average six times a week and did not need to charge them again for a month! The only complaints I have is when doing certain exercises they tend to slide off my head a little so I have to adjust them a few times." —Jessica Johnston

15. A Waterpik because if there's one thing all dads love, it's oral hygiene.

17. An official Tasty cookbook so you can stop sharing cooking videos with your dad and start making them together.

18. A subscription to Carnivore Club to save your dad a trip to the local butcher shop.

Carnivore Club

The service sends handcrafted cured meats from a different local artisan every month. All meats are cured and sealed so they don't need to be refrigerated, meaning you can buy it now and save it for the right moment. It comes in three styles: snack, classic, and wooden crate.

I tried out the classic box and I was really impressed with the presentation! I think you could even get away with just gifting a single box because it's packed with lots of fun treats.

Get it from Amazon for $39+/month (available in three styles).

19. Escape — a breathtaking photo book for the dad who always has the Expedia app open on his phone.

Promising review: "With its refined cover, silver gilded pages, a greater number of pages, and more variety, it is Beaches' grown-up sister. Every bit as colorful, it's even more breathtaking. Shots are mostly scenic, with some lifestyle ones interspersed." —walmur

Get it from Amazon for $30.53, Barnes & Noble for $33.08, or a local bookseller through IndieBound here.


21. A pack of grilling spices to encourage your dad to throw more BBQs (aka free food events).

Promising review: "I was so impressed when I used these for the first time. Every seasoning has an awesome, unique flavor!! I'm already addicted to grill master and citrus pepper, and I've been using them on EVERYTHING since I first opened them. Super delicious and really versatile — just don't hesitate on this one!" —Carly D

Get a set of five from Amazon for $24.99 (available in six themes).

22. A cookbook dedicated to all meals bacon and a cool bacon press. Get ready to ~pig out~.,

Promising review: "We got this book as kind of a joke stocking stuffer type thing for Christmas and let me tell you – we actually use it and it is pretty good! There are a number of recipes in here that you wouldn’t think of if you had a pack of bacon to use and a pantry of odds and ends but let me tell you – they work and they work really well." —Rebecca G.

Get the cookbook for $6.59 and bacon press for $11.97 from Amazon.


24. A set of landscape knives for the dad who's a cut above the rest.

Promising review: "Not only are these knives beautiful but they're super sharp as well. For the price I wasn't expecting too much other than them looking cute in my kitchen. However, I was pleasantly surprised. The handles have a nice subtle texture that keeps them from being slippery when wet. They come in a very nice box with a magnetic closure. Usually I don't care about packaging but the box and the presentation are so nice I couldn't help but think they would make an excellent gift." —April Arnold

Get a set of six from Amazon for $34.95.

26. A Roku Streaming Stick+ so your dad can watch all of his favorite shows. Plus it's so easy to use, you don't even have to worry about setting it up for him.


Not to say that ALL parents need a lot of hand-holding, technology-wise. Just mine.

The Roku lets the user stream television shows and movies from big names like Hulu, HBO Go, Netflix, Sling, and more. Simply plug the stick into the USB port on the television to get started. The plus has an advanced wireless receiver and voice remote.
