Promising review: "I gave this to my dad for Father's Day and it brought him to tears. This may be the best (and one of the cheapest) Father's Day gifts I've ever bought. It takes some time and thought to fill it out (50 pages), but so worth it. Also, I filled it out with my sister so we each did every other page which made it easier to complete and made it more meaningful for my dad. I also cut and pasted a photo to the inside cover of me, my dad and sister. Get this. You're dad will melt if he's human." —Darrin M.Get it from Uncommon Goods for $10, Urban Outfitters for $10, or Amazon for $12.81 (also available for Grandpa).If you're more into letter writing, check out a Letters to My Dad set from Uncommon Goods for $16.

8. A 12-person tent that'll provide plenty of shelter for the fam on all those camping trips you have planned.

Promising review: "Did four camping trips this summer with my family of five and (sometimes extended family members). This tent exceeds our expectations. We call this our 'mansion in the woods.' It is huge and easy to set up even for one person. The stakes are garbage though so replace it with heavy duty ones. This is not winter tent since the top is just screen and the rooms are too spacious to hold heat but it'll be excellent for warmer climate. Can't wait to go camping again when the weather start to warm up." —BrendoGet it from Amazon for $281.14.Check out more gifts for outdoorsy dads and the best tents on Amazon.

11. An Echo Show to make hands-free calling super easy for your catchup sessions.

Call almost anyone hands-free, or make video calls to family and friends with an Echo Spot, Echo Show, or the Alexa App. Instantly connect to other Echo devices around your home. Echo Show lets you watch video flash briefings, Amazon Video content, see music lyrics, security cameras, photos, weather forecasts, to-do and shopping lists, browse and listen to Audible audiobooks, and more. Promising review: "I bought this for my dad who is 83 years old. Got one for me and my son, too. My brother has the app. Daddy loves it! He lives about three hours from us and this enables him to 'visit' us any time he wants. He can talk face to face with his children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren without having to learn something new. He just tells Alexa what to do. He smiles all the time and actually is 'dropping in' when he rarely picked the phone up to call before. Another bonus, he's hard of hearing but has no problem with the Echo Show. He can hear and see us clear as a bell! I get something out of him having it too (besides the joy of seeing him enjoy something so much!), peace of mind as I can check in on him to make sure he is okay. He's making use of other aspects of Alexa as well due to the on screen prompts. He loves playing 'his' music. All he has to do is ask. When I am able, I plan on getting everyone in the family one so Daddy can 'visit' all of us any time he wants." —LisaGet it from Amazon for $229.99.

My wife has wanted one of these things for years and I finally gave in and got one for Christmas. All I can say is wow, this thing sucks (in the good way)! We have a rather large and strangely laid out first floor with 11 rooms and four hallways in a very illogical layout. All tile with a few area rugs and door mats or rugs with frilly edges. The iRobot 980 has no problem at all. We have two black Labradors and the black hair used to show up along the baseboards daily. Not any more. I was so skeptical and all my concerns are vacuumed away. I recommend this little monster to anyone and everyone." —FB4NDGet it from Amazon for $799.99.

26. A pack of pickle brine ice pops meant as an athletic supplement for helping rehydrate and prevent cramps. Though we've heard it'll also help with hangovers 😉.

Like a pickelback, but not. Promising review: "Pickle juice ice pops, who'da thought it? But yeah, I am on a diet that has me constantly looking to replenish my electrolytes. I take electrolyte replacement liquid drops but this is an easy and tasty way to get more potassium, which is always a challenge. Each of these pops claims to replenish 2% each of your RDA of potassium, magnesium and calcium (in pickle juice?!?!?) and is a tangy, cooling, zero-calorie, zero-carb treat to boot. Win-win-win." —Jack_and_Lois_in_TX Get an eight-pack from Amazon for $7.16.

27. A new set of wheels (three wheels, specifically) with plenty of basket room to tote around the essentials in his neighborhood.

Promising review: "Definitely a two person assembly. The nice thing about it — unlike other bikes I have had to put together, most of the major components where already assembled. The directions are very basic. The nuts/screws are already at the location that they need to be, so you just take out the screw and then immediately reuse it in that spot for the item component that you are installing. I was thrown off by this at first as I was hunting for a bag of nuts/bolts and was worried about it being lost, but then we noticed they are already on the bike. The color is very nice — well-made bike. Purchased it for my father to ride around his neighborhood, he has had it for a few days and loves it." —ToddGet it from Amazon for $305.98 (available in six colors).
