    1. A set of large sphere ice molds so your dad can sip on a cocktail in the most efficient way possible, according to physics. Since spheres have the lowest surface area per unit volume, they melt more slowly so you can sip your cooled drink over an extended period of time without having it watered down. This also helps release the liquor's aromas and subdued tones from the water to reveal their full characteristics.

    2. This set of two whiskey glasses with a chrome rim that pay homage to the '50s and '60s classic roly poly glass, designed by well-known modernist artist Dorothy Thorpe.

    3. A shaving razor christened "the Cadillac of razors" by Queen Lori herself on Shark Tank. It has three custom shave settings, so they can achieve a great shave without ingrown hairs and irritation.

    4. A sleek, minimalist, and affordable Seiko watch that's perfect for the kind of dad who doesn't want too many bells and whistles — just a classic, stylish watch that tells the dang time without sacrificing quality.

    5. A multipurpose 6-inch kitchen knife with a high-carbon stainless-steel blade for dads who know their way around the kitchen.

    6. An elegant leather desk pad that looks and feels high-end while protecting your workspace from scratches and spills.

    7. A holy-grail beer glass designed by a craft beer expert and referred to by some as "the world's best beer glass."

    8. A small but powerful jar of all-purpose leather conditioner, because it'll significantly help restore the shine and extend the life of your father's leather goods.

    9. A Tile Bluetooth tracker designed specifically for wallets for the dads who are always misplacing their stuff.

    10. A popular fountain pen for beginners so your dad can stop using cheap, unreliable pens and start jotting down notes with a pen that'll basically pay for itself over time.

    11. And a bottle of smoky grey fountain pen ink with gold flecks in it for their new fountain pen that has exceptionally low dry times, minimal bleeding and feathering, and looks approximately a hundred times more interesting than your everyday black ink.

    12. A low-profile, under-$10 slim wallet if your dad is the kind who prefers to carry the bare minimum around.

    13. This ergonomic mouse that's a little on the pricier side, but will make any time spent working from home easier with its unique design and all of its customizable bells and whistles.

    14. Would this really be a Father's Day roundup if it didn't include the Scrub Daddy, aka one of the best-selling Shark Tank products of all time?

    15. A glass whiskey decanter with one very important distinction from other options: its stopper is made out of cork, not glass. Glass stoppers aren't airtight and alcohol will eventually start evaporating out if the whiskey is left in a glass decanter for too long. A cork stopper does a better job at protecting your liquor.

    16. This security camera that links up with your smartphone and can be controlled with Alexa so your father can finally keep tabs on who keeps adjusting the dang thermostat.

    17. And this Picaridin-based repellent to equip your dad with a trusty bug spray that'll protect against nasty bites from bugs like mosquitoes, ticks, gnats, chiggers, and more.
