    45 Father's Day Gifts For The Dad Who Has Everything

    If he already has a custom Renaissance-style portrait of the family dog, well, I wanna meet that dad.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

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

    amazon.com

    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 $26.99.

    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.

    the Hunt a Killer box
    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.

    Get a one-month subscription from Hunt A Killer for $33.95 (also available in a six-month subscription).

    4. A custom pet portrait to expand the family gallery wall now that your four-legged sibling is ruling the empty nest and getting the royal treatment.

    HommeSurLaLune / Etsy

    And your dad didn't even WANT a dog.

    Get it from Homme Sur La Lune on Etsy for $80+.

    5. A fill-in-the-blank book you can put down some of your favorite memories in and he can keep on hand for when he needs a pick-me-up or is just thinking of you.

    Uncommon Goods

    Get it from Amazon for $7.68 or Uncommon Goods for $10 (also available for Grandpa).

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

    Get them from Amazon for $10.19.

    7. An engraved fly fishing box to ~lure~ him into doing his favorite outdoor activity even more often. (If that's humanly possible.)

    Winona Wood Craft / Etsy

    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.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I love this burger press! Whether it's to fill with cheese, bacon, jalapenos, or whatever, this is an awesome tool for grilling season! Even if you aren't interested in stuffed burgers, it helps with making burger patties. Burgers are perfectly sculpted and your hands don't get completely covered in raw beef. But be sure to spray some Pam inside the press on the walls and the base, otherwise it's a major pain getting the patty to come loose." —AGonzales7

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99.

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

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    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 $48 (available in three colors, four sizes).

    11. A heroic poster that'll remind him deep down that every hero and villain has something in common with Captain Underpants.

    Uncommon Goods

    And the VERY EXCELLENT Captain Underpants movie would make a great pairing for this gift. Don't @ me.

    12. Or a Super Dad shirt to help him show off his legendary status.

    Shop BuzzFeed

    13. 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!

    product shot of Echo showing an episode of Good Morning America
    Amazon

    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: "The commercial where the daughter burns the dinner before her date arrives and her dad helps her out via video on the Echo Show literally makes me tear up every time. My dad is not able to help me with things like that. He has dementia and has trouble walking. I am his daughter, but live six hours away from his nursing home. We used to talk on the phone all the time, but now he has trouble answering his cell phone and indeed yesterday left it in his pants, washed it and the cell phone died. I could not talk to him as I wanted. He was not able to answer video calls via Alexa without me reminding him on his cell to push the answer button. But now, thanks to the Drop-In feature I can just video call him anytime without him having to answer and the nurses have left a note telling him what to say so he can drop in on me and his two beautiful granddaughters when he wants. Now, we spend hours together. It is nothing short of a miracle to see his and my face and his granddaughters faces light up as he is able to interact with my family EVERY SINGLE DAY. You have brought our lives JOY and i cannot thank you enough for this innovative technology and the ease with which to operate it. My kids and family adore every single feature and we are getting to know more and more about what it can do. Thank you sincerely from the bottom of our hearts." —Amazon Review

    Get it from Amazon for $229.99.

    14. Or a Google Home Hub in case he's extremely against anything with a camera function (like my parents!) but loves the idea of listening to his playlists, pulling up recipes by speaking by his hands are a mess, or controlling all sorts of smart things around the house.

    Target

    I gave my mom one for Christmas and she loves it. It works with Nest and 5,000+ smart devices from 400+ popular brands, so surely it'll fit his needs! He can also enjoy songs and videos from YouTube Music, listen to Spotify and Pandora, and call for US and Canadian domestic calls only.

    Get it from Target for $89.99 (available in two colors).

    15. A custom peg family for nestling in with family pics on his desk at work.

    Peg & Plum / Etsy

    Get them from Peg & Plum on Etsy for $112.

    16. 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.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    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 144, 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+

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

    Amazon

    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 $18.92.

    18. 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
    Geologie

    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.

    19. 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.

    Amazon

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

    20. 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.com, 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).

    21. 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.

    Amazon

    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 $447.54.

    22. A pair of notched couch bowls, (yes, couch bowls), fit for a spoon and grip, lest he have to mop up spilled milk from the couch ONCE MORE.
