    1. Magnetic grill lights that I'm sure even Hank Hill hasn't heard of!

    But really though, why isn't every grill equipped with these from the factory?

    Promising review: "This was a surprise for my husband. He loves them. The lights are nice and bright and make grilling those last few things that didn't get finished before dark hot. He's also used them early in the morning when he's setting the smoker up before dawn. He's happy and finding them very useful. He especially loves the magnet on bottom so he can hang them off of so many things while he's busy and he can use the flexibility to shine them where he needs them. Very awesome and easy to use." —Holly Gomez

    Get two from Amazon for $16.99.

    2. A season of Aerial America for when he wants to take in gorgeous, narrated views without leaving the couch. (And perhaps discover Carhenge, like my dad did.)

    Smithsonian Channel

    And that's how we ended up at Carhenge in Nebraska on a family vacation a couple of summers ago! My dad is OBSESSED with this show to the point that my family and I tease him about it now. But I *get it* because it's pretty amazing.

    Watch it on Amazon for $2.99/episode or $34.99/season.

    3. A Hunt A Killer subscription so you can solve your way through a (faux) case together, now that you've seemingly finished all the true-crime stuff on Netflix.

    Hunt A Killer

    Finally! A reason to put a bunch of yarn between papers on a wall! Each box includes clues for a murder that you need to help solve! Also, this isn't a quick, little thing. It is involved, so Dad will stay occupied with this awhile. Each "season" of a crime is six episodes long. I recently did the Blair Witch series and it was a wonderful screen-free way to pass some time in quar!

    Uncommon Goods

    Promising review: "Dad LOVED it. I mean what do you give to someone who is turning 80? So, I gave it to him, and he read the whole thing while everyone else was chatting away. I could see his face, (a guy who rarely smiles) and could see his lips begin to curl. His eyes were fixed on the pages. every now and then he would smile and chuckle. I asked him if he liked it and he said with his Spanish accent, 'I'm gonna take it to my grave!' Deep." —Purring Kitty

    Get it from Amazon for $10.21.

    6. Or a thoughtful letter set if you're more into the idea of individual letters he can open up at different intervals.

    Get it from Winona Wood Craft on Etsy for $34.

    8. A stuffed burger press because he taught you everything worth knowing about hot melted cheese.


    Promising review: "Really well made product. It is sturdy and works great, I foresee this lasting for quite some time. It is very easy to use and can make stuffed burgers as well as regular burgers. I also bought the paper sheets recommended because then I can buy ground beef on sale and shape and freeze my own hamburger patties. It saves quite a bit of money to do it this way as opposed to buying already made ground beef patties, not to mention the taste is sooooo much better!" —deborah

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    9. An eight-person tent that'll provide plenty of shelter for the fam on all those camping trips you have planned.,

    Promising review: "Good Tent. Used it three weeks ago. It slept five. Me, my wife, and my three boys during a cub scout campout. I had a queen size air bed and a full size airbed on either end of the tent, and still had what seemed like 6 feet of space in between, which I used to set up a 3-foot-by-3-foot roll table and store my gear. The door is very convenient. It can be tricky to get the velcro to lineup, but not a big deal at all. What I really like about the door is the design. I had zipper issues with a previous tent, because of the tension put on the door. This tent zips very easily, and I can see it lasting much longer!! I got a lot of compliments from the other dads too, which is always a plus ;)" —Kory R.

    Get it from Amazon for $161.45+ (available in three colors).

    10. A handmade leather belt to replace that one you've been wearing since he dropped you off at kindergarten because, yes, he taught you the value of a solid purchase but maybe it's time to retire that old model.

    Get it from Nisolo for $50 (available in three colors, four sizes).

    11. An Echo Show to make hands-free calling super easy for your catchup sessions — especially if you live at least a few hours away and would feel better having video calls to see how Dad's doing!

    Promising review: "This is fantastic. My son gave me this for Father's Day. I'm in an assisted living facility. We have been on lockdown for quite sometime. I am able to communicate with my sons and daughter visually. I had an Echo before and enjoyed it tremendously but the shadow 8 is so much better. I think everyone should have one. This is surely a 5-star product." —Roger Brien

    Get it from Amazon for $109.99.

    12. A custom peg family that'll nestle in with family pics on his desk at work.

    13. A Gillette heated razor made for a super smooth, soothing experience like a hotel towel shave. I gave one to my dad and he's a big fan!

    model shaving their face with a razor

    But if your dad falls into the category of "Don't spend money on me!" like mine does, just don't mention how much it costs. (I told mine that when he asked out of curiosity because it was so "nice" and he said "Don't spend that much on me!" But he says that if I give him a $20 gift card, so....)

    The waterproof heated razor has a stainless-steel warming bar, two heat levels ( (109 degrees F/43 degrees C and 122 degrees F/50 degrees C), five blades, a contouring feature for comfortable contact with every stroke, wireless magnetic charging, and a lithium ion battery.

    Get a starter kit from Gillette for $200 (also available in a subscription for the same price plus $25/three months that includes a four-count refill pack every quarter).

    14. An album-centric book related to one of his faves, like Black Sabbath's Master of Reality or Neil Young's Harvest, to bring fresh perspective to some familiar tunes.,

    This excellent book series is written by different authors about the creation and/or impact of a specific album. Disparate artists covered include acts like Dinosaur Jr., Jawbreaker, Lou Reed, Nine Inch Nails, and Sleater-Kinney. As of now there are 154, so there's probably an artist addressed that your dad seriously digs.

    Get them from Amazon: Master of Reality for $9.99+ or Havest for $9.99+

    15. A pair of blackout sunnies for sleeping. Or looking cool. Both OK?

    person sleeping on a plane wearing the sunglasses

    Promising review: "I have used these glasses for several months now and they work great. They are perfect for in-flight naps as they really do block out the light. If you fit the glasses close to your face, there is very little light that filters through. They are light and comfortable, without all the annoying straps from a sleep mask — and look stylish too. I have purchased a few more as gifts." —Jeff C.

    Get them from Amazon for $18.54.

    16. A super soft pair of novelty socks with a few of my favorite things on it. Maybe take him to a beer garden for Father's Day? There are worse ideas.

    sock with a cartoon print of beer steins and pretzels

    They're made in a super soft and durable cotton blend with a cushioned toe and heel.

    Get them from Saxx for $12 (available two sizes and in six more styles). And if you have an especially cool relationship, you can get him the matching boxers!

    17. A customized skincare regimen because you recently discovered he's been washing his face with that green strong-smelling soap (you know the one!) after he complained about his face feeling dry and weird.

    group of skincare products

    But, like, the regimen isn't *too* wild. It's doable stuff like cleanser, day cream, night cream, and eye cream. So like, the basics. He can take a quiz about his routine (or you can take on his behalf because you know) and set up a trial for 30 days.

    Get a 30-day trial from Geologie for $37.

    18. A pair of enamel pins for your hometown library's most loyal patron, especially since he discovered the branch's e-book offerings and has been speeding through them.

    enamel pins made to look like a library stamp and library checkout card

    Get them from Amazon for $18. And your siblings can buy him the coordinating socks and coffee mug!

    19. But if he's in need of a new e-reader, a waterproof Kindle could be just the thing for the main man who has gotten so sucked into a tome that he spilled a mug of coffee all over himself. Multiple times. It happens!, Amazon

    As this cat is demonstrating, it really IS waterproof!

    Promising review: "I preordered this to replace my last generation Kindle. I read a lot and mostly in three areas — outside in the sun, in bed in no light, and indoors during the day. I like the ease of adjusting the backlight as needed to read in the different environment. I don’t know what could be included in the next iteration of the Paperwhite as this one is about perfect." —Mike

    Get it from Amazon for $129.99+ (available in two sizes).

    20. A fancy Roomba robot vacuum with Alexa connectivity you and your siblings can go all in on because he's obsessed with gadgets and could use another pet.

    Works with Alexa for voice control, and on carpet and hard floors.

    Promising review: "I read a lot of reviews before purchasing this specific Roomba — and I have to say, I am IMPRESSED! I love this thing, seriously. After just a few days of use my floors are cleaner than they have ever been.

    Let me give you a little background: I have a big ol' hairy lab mix, two long-haired cats, a bunny rabbit, and two very long-haired humans (including myself) who lose a lot of hair over the course of a day. Everyday at 7 p.m. my Roomba, which I have named "Dumb A**," navigates itself through my apartment cleaning as it goes. After just a few days having it I have watched it slowly map out my home. The first two cycles it went through it was very confused. It ran into things and zig-zagged around for about an hour and then called for help because it was lost. I am ashamed to say that during these first few cycles I had to empty the bin SEVEN TIMES and I had just cleaned prior to using it. Since then it navigates around furniture pretty seamlessly and covers the whole floor in about an hour. I was worried it wouldn't be able to clean my thick shag area rug but it has had no problem climbing up onto it and going to town.

    It picks up so much frickin' pet hair. oh-my-god. This little robot vacuum has changed the way I clean — hopefully for a long time. I highly recommend!" —Rachel

    Get it from Amazon for $449.

    21. A special cereal bowl because apparently no matter how old you are, getting the perfect non-soggy cereal/milk ratio is humanly impossible. *Also* it has a grip on the bottom that makes it easy to hold while eating on the couch.

    Promising review: "I bought this for my dad for father's day and he's told me that he likes it so much he uses it daily. Which is a big deal seeing as that means he has to hand-wash it every morning! Big hit!" —Claris Leigh

    Promising review: "The Gopro hero 8 was one of my best purchases ever. Amazing action camera, good stabilization, good video and photo quality. It reached my home in good conditions. The camera battery it's not super but it's ok! The voice control isn't so good! But's fine, I think it's kinda tricky." —Mauro Marcano

    27. Flex Seal to play around with in areas that could use a flexible barrier, like an unfinished basement, backyard pond, workbench, or hand tools.

    Promising review: "Turned out perfect. Got for my dad for his birthday! He love it and arrived perfect. He had to wash before use as it came really wrinkle but dried quickly. Great gift if you're second guessing yourself. Purchased the 70-inch. I selected this style because it reminded me of a burnt tortilla and that’s how he likes his tortilla with extra crisp. It looks perfect match to it." —Amazon Customer
