    the spike ball game set

    Price: $11.79

    16. A Samsung Galaxy tablet because it's useful for everything from paying bills to watching movies. It's got up to a 13-hour battery life and has quad speakers so he'll be able to clearly hear the needle drops in his favorite Scorsese movie that he's watching for the 50th time.

    19. Or an Instant Pot for dads who prefer to throw down in the kitchen as opposed to grilling in the backyard.

    The alarm clock with phone plugged in

    Promising review: "Easy to set time and alarm. Three brightness settings for numbers (love that!). Snooze button from five minutes up to an hour. Alarm first sounds like almost a loud baby chick — 'beep' for 10 times. Then changes to a slightly louder 'beep-beep' for another 10. Then a louder 'beep-beep-beep' and it continues till you hit snooze or turn it off. I let it go for almost a minute before I hit snooze." —Target reviewer

    Price: $13

    22. A Casper pillow because it's probably time for him to replace his old, flat one he's kept for far too long. Give your dad the gift of knowing what it's like to sleep on a cloud, AKA this pillow.

    A model cuddling the pillow

    Promising review: "After researching what felt like hundreds of pillows online, I purchased a Casper original. So very happy with this pillow! It truly works for any type of sleeper since you remove a secondary pillow from the inside (instead of a bunch of stuffing), AND it's machine washable. Ended up buying new pillows for the whole family." —Target reviewer

    Price: $58.50+ (originally $65+; also available in King)

    23. A magnetic knife holder for any dad who likes to have tools right where he can see them.

    The magnetic knife holder holding a set of four knives with black handles

    Promising review: "This knife bar frees up a corner of our counter space, it’s a simple design, easy to install ( except that you have to take care to use a drill bit smaller than the 3/8” as instructed, but then any good handyman would have checked first), and very inexpensive." —Target reviewer

    Price: $16.99

    24. A Nespresso VertuoPlus coffee machine that will make his mornings way more productive. This incredibly efficient appliance is so simple to use. All dad has to do is insert the coffee pod and press a button and he'll have his brew in literal seconds.

    The Nespresso machine

    Promising review: "I bought this for my husband but I was leery. I love our stove top espresso maker and didn’t think I’d use the Nespresso often, or be able to find a coffee that would measure up. It came with a sample pack that we tried out, and we have found a few different coffee and espresso-based pods that we keep on hand. I love the ease of making a quick cup when I’m on my way out the door and forgot (or was too lazy) to prep our stovetop coffee the night before. the machine is easy to use, easy to refill, easy to empty of used pods. Nespresso, you’ve won me over!" —Zlane

    Price: $179.99

    25. A leather office chair to make long days at his home office more comfortable. This luxurious chair is fully padded and perfect for dads who do lots of computer-ing.

    Promising review: "I first bought this chair a couple of months ago. I use it every day for nine hours a day and it’s great. In fact, my 10-year-old daughter liked it more than the chair I bought her for her desk so I gave her this one and bought this chair again. It’s quick and easy to put together." —Target reviewer

    Price: $80

    26. A Hamilton Beach breakfast sandwich maker to help him make a gourmet breakfast in five minutes. McDonald's who?

    the sandwich maker with an english muffin, egg, ham slice, and cheese in the appliance

    Promising review: "This is great to use, easy and fast, for a tasty breakfast sandwich. It has a timer and is so easy to clean. I use an egg, ready to use bacon, a slice of cheese and the muffin. Taste just like the restaurants, if not better." —Target reviewer

    Price: $24.99

    27. A portable power bank to take everywhere he goes and solve that frustrating problem of his phone dying as the day goes on. He'll have the boost he needs to get through the day.

    person using the power bank attached to their phone

    Promising review: "I purchased my first one almost two years ago and used it weekly. I ended up buying a second charging bank (the same one) a few months ago after I gave my original to my husband for his travels. I can get a full charge on two devices using the quick charge port before having to recharge the bank. If you are aware of Mophie, this Anker brand is absolutely comparable to it and at the fraction of the price, also lighter in weight." —Lynn

    Price: $29.99

    28. An electric wine bottle opener because with regular bottle openers, there's always the chance the cork accidentally breaks. With this handy tool, not only is there no chance the cork will break, it comes out at the push of a button. Literally. Your dad will thank you for years to come, trust me.


    Promising review: "I bought this a few years ago for myself and everyone loves it so much that I've bought an additional two for gifts! Works great. Super easy to use! Not fighting with the always comes out intact and complete. Highly recommend!" –shoelove

    29. A Bluetooth tracker so he can spend less time stressing when he loses his phone or keys and spend more time relaxing because they're so easy to find. He just has to tap the device to ring his phone or tap his phone to ring the device. It's the little things.

    Price: $34.99

    The black suitcase has a record player on the inside and is set atop a wooden table

    Promising review: "The internal speaker pleasantly surprised me with its sound throw and volume. A lot of negative reviews in regards to the Bluetooth feature, but my 19-year-old had no problem getting it to work. Me, I prefer listening the old school way via the player speaker." –Target Reviewer

    Price: $79.99
