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

    Even though he says he doesn't need anything!

    We hope you love the products we recommend! Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page. 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

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

    Promising review: "These grill lights are exactly what I needed! They light up the area so well. The magnets are strong and the ability to direct the light where needed is great. The package they came in is perfect to store them in when not using! I have recommended these to several people who also think they are great. I was worried they would be cheap and maybe not have a lot of magnetic hold to them, but they do!!" —LC

    Get two from Amazon for $17.97.

    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 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.

    Pet Characters / Etsy

    And your dad didn't even WANT a dog.

    Get it from Pet Characters on Etsy for $99+.

    4. 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 $8.54 or Uncommon Goods for $10 (also available for Grandpa).

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

    Amazon

    Get them from Amazon for $11.95.

    6. A splurge-worthy heated razor for a towel shave–like feel because though he deserves to get a super fancy one of those every single day, he doesn't have the room in his schedule!

    Gillette

    It has a warming bar, wireless magnetic charging, adjustable temperature levels, Li-ion battery, and an intelligent heat safety control system. The heat activates with a touch and it's fully waterproof so a switch from a regular razor to this will be super easy. *And* it won't get too hot! (Obviously, you don't want to give him a gift that'll injure him.)

    Get it from Gillette for $200.

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

    Engraving Pro / Etsy

    Get it from EngravingPro on Etsy for $46.95+ (available in five wood types, three engraving options).

    8. A ~tasteful~ apron because he taught you that hot melted cheese with a few things to dip into it makes a perfectly fine meal and you should honor that in every possible way.

    Amazon

    Get it from BuzzFeed's shop on Amazon for $17.99 (also available in a T-shirt and sweatshirt!).

    9. And a stuffed burger press because of what I said up there ^ about the glory of melted cheese in meals.

    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 $10.86.

    10. A 12-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: "I love this tent so much! I sleep in it with my four kids when we camp. I fits two queen mattresses and a toddler mattress in it and I sleep on a bed roll. It would fit three queen air mattresses side by side I believe. The airflow is great and the ease of setting up is amazing. I'm the sole adult and I have no problem having this up in five minutes and down in 10. I love the gear pockets inside for stashing flashlights, etc. It has openings for an electrical cord that work really well and has sturdy hooks in the roof supports for fans/lamps that make a huge difference. This is a great family tent —being able to show up at our site and know I've got everything I need (no poles to go missing!) and know I can have shelter up with a minimum of cursing within a few minutes of arrival takes so much stress out of the trip!" —Melissa G.

    Get it from Amazon for $219.99.

    11. A boater hat for the classic dresser who'd rather die than wear a snapback.

    Nordstrom

    Get it from Nordstrom for $63.

    12. A Zodiac Killer Tarot card tee in case your text chain is riddled with spooky podcast and Netflix doc recs.

    Museum of Death

    Being spooky is ~hereditary~. Oh and I just saw this shirt IRL at the New Orleans Museum of Death. I highly rec a family visit!

    Get it from the Museum of Death for $25+ (available in sizes S–2XL; also available in Charles Manson "The Heirophant," Richard Ramirez as "The Devil," Carl Panzram "Death," Jeffrey Dahmer "The Sun," Ted Bundy "Temperance," Ed Gein "The Hermit," Aileen Wuornos "The High Priestess," and Myra Hindley and Ian Brady "The Lovers.").

    13. 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.

    Get it from Uncommon Goods for $35.

    14. 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!

    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.

    15. 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 $129 (available in two colors).

    16. A brownie sampler because even the father figure who argues they don't need anything will get a thrill (that's cheap for you!) out of this.

    Cheryl's

    Get it from Cheryl's for $19.99+ (Enter the promo code CCOBUZZ15 to get 15% off sitewide and enjoy gourmet cookies, cakes, snacks and more!).

    17. 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 $105.

    18. 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.

    19. 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 135, 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 $7.99+

    20. 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!

    21. 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).

    22. 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 $297.49.

    23. 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.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This product is amazing! I used it to sealed my fountain and it is working perfectly. It did not change color when in contact with water. Please do not buy Rubberseal if you want a black color finish. Rubberseal turns brown when in contact with water." —LCU

    Amazon

    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 $6.98.

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

    Amazon

    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." —Todd
