    1. A pair of PS4 performance thumbsticks to upgrade their gaming controller and increase their accuracy, and reduce wrist, hand and thumb fatigue.

    2. A Black+Decker toolkit because they have been dubbed "The Fixer," always ready to tighten up the legs on your TV stand or help you set up your new bed frame from West Elm. And let's face it, they love when you ask them for help.

    3. A portable standup grill with a push-button ignition for matchless lighting, three adjustable burners, and quick-fold legs and wheels that make toting it around the campsite super easy.

    4. A wireless remote food thermometer so the grill master can monitor their meat on the grill and catch up on the most recent episode of Law & Order: Organized Crime without having to worry about burning the meat.

    5. A Bluetooth speaker ready to play the custom playlist you made your stepdad of all the songs that remind you of them. It's lightweight and waterproof, which makes it a great companion.

    6. A bike phone mount so they can always be available to answer your FaceTime calls without having to stop their evening ride around the neighborhood.

    7. A personal fireplace for an ambience that sets the scene for ultimate relaxation that they can even roast marshmallows and other food over. It burns clean and it's just a super cool gift that no one else would think of. Let's see your siblings try to top that!

    8. A LifeStraw water bottle perfect for the stepdad who loves a good hike and is always trying to get you to join them. This water bottle has an integrated filtered straw that will allow them to drink water from a lake without worrying about contamination.

    9. Or, a self-cleaning water bottle to upgrade their hydration experience. There's a UV-C LED in the bottle cap that sanitizes water, neutralizes any odor-causing bacteria, and cleans the inner walls of the water bottle — all in just 60 seconds.

    10. A vegan leather watch roll that'll keep their favorite time keepers organized at home or during travel. *sigh* Oh how time flies when you have an awesome stepdad. You can also get it monogrammed with your stepdad's initials!

    11. A gift-boxed Fisher Space Pen if your stepdad is the type to always have a pen clipped to their front pocket. This pen has the ability to write in extreme temperatures (minus 30 degrees to 250 degrees Fahrenheit, underwater, on wet surfaces, literally anywhere. Not that you anticipate them needing to write a note from inside a volcano or swimming with dolphins but if they decided they wanted to, they can!

    12. A bottle of Mike's Hot Honey, because they like it hot, on EVERYTHING. Seriously, sometimes you glance over in the middle of dinner and wonder, "Why would anyone put this on salad?" But, that's the best part of this sweet-heat chili pepper-infused honey, you can literally put it on anything from pizza, wings, tea, cocktails, and more.

    13. A Bartesian cocktail machine that'll make their favorite drink just the way they like it. And, they won't have to drift out to the local dive bar; they can stay home and spend more time with you instead. It's like the Nespresso of cocktails that reviewers say is totally worth the splurge.

    14. A GQ subscription box in case their favorite pastime is receiving packages filled with ~the best stuff~ that is both super cool *and* practical. Perfect for the stepdad that isn't a shopper but likes to try new things.

    15. A Kindle Paperwhite for the bookish stepdad whose nose is always in a John Grisham novel. They're kind of quiet but always seem to get going when explaining the plot twist of their favorite book.

    16. A Philips smart light complete with five natural sounds and an FM radio. This smart light simulates sunlight to ease their wakeup, and simulates sunset for smooth transition to sleep.

    17. A coffee table book filled with a collection of art from Austin, Texas-based gallery Mondo, which is known for its modern interpretations of movie posters. This book has been referred to as a true gem for film aficionados and art lovers alike. If they're a fan of both, they're sure to love this gift.

    18. A scratch-off poster that's more of a family gift because you can all sit around and watch the films together. This bucket list of 100 films will be a fun ride for them, especially if they find a few movies they've missed. After all the movies are scratched off, they can hang the artwork in their home office and reminisce on the funny movie night moments you've had.

    19. An espresso machine that'll save them a trip and a few dollars by allowing them to make quality lattes from the comfort of their home. And you know, they're always down for saving a dollar.

    20. A pair of Sony wireless headphones with noise cancellation, a microphone for calling, and Alexa voice control. Treat them to something nice, even though you know they'll mostly be used to tune out you and your siblings 😂.

    21. An Apple TV streaming device so they can finally catch up on all the shows you've been going on and on about during your weekly check-ins.

    23. A road trip candle that'll serve as a reminder of the great road trips you've had so far, and a promise that when it's safe to travel, the two of you will hit the road for another adventure. OK, I guess the rest of the family can come, too.

    28. A hardcover Moleskine classic notebook so they have a place to jot down all their thoughts and ideas and don't have to keep writing phone numbers on the back of your mail. And they'll look super sophisticated jotting down their scribbles and whatnot.

    29. A Levi's trucker jacket because they never go shopping and have been rocking the same jean jacket pretty much since they met your mom. It's time for an upgrade, and they'll be super grateful.

    30. A durable, waterproof Earth Pak compression bag perfect for stepdads who like to fish, camp, or partake in other outdoor activities. It's built to last and can handle being dragged around and thrown around.

    33. A gardener's tool seat because, as we all know, there's nothing dads like more than sitting the heck down. With this, they can rest and garden at the same time!

    34. A pair of compression socks for the sporty stepdad who's always insisting you bond over exercise. In addition to being moisture-wicking, these bad boys will keep their legs supported and pain-free through any kind of activity.
