    24. A pair of wireless sleep headphones that will play white noise or the music of their choice in a comfy headband, so they can enjoy the calm of it all night long (and block out the unrepentant snoring of certain people and/or pets).

    The pan with three rectangles of cooked lasagna with different ingredients in it

    32. A scratch-off world map so they can reminisce on all the adventures they've taken and dream up all the ones they want to take next 🌎.

    33. A sound bar alternative that'll help them get them most out of their TV's speakers for a whoooole lot less — they can place the two "turboscoops" directly under their speakers, and once they're easily installed, it helps funnel the sound, making dialogue clearer and background noises crisper.

    37. A collapsible microwave popcorn maker that doubles as a serving bowl, perfect for the Father's Day movie marathon you've got planned for them this year.

    38. *Plus* a cult-favorite ~secret~ popcorn salt that anyone in the movie theater industry will tell you is a perfect dupe for that oh-so-savory buttery goodness you love to inhale before the previews begin. Not to be dramatic about popcorn on main, but this stuff is game-changing.

    40. A rapid egg cooker that I am warning you right now is going to become your dad's only personality trait. It can make soft, medium, *and* hard-boiled eggs in addition to poaching, scrambling, and making omelettes out of them. This gizmo is like, a thousand potential breakfasts in one.

    41. A book of New York Times crossword puzzles for old school dads — they can ease into it with the simpler Monday puzzle book, then work their way up to the more challenging Friday puzzle book, until eventually reaching the Bowser level: the Sunday puzzle book.
