    72 Of The Best Father’s Day Gifts To Give In 2023

    You better believe your dad would appreciate a sweet outdoor canopy swing.

    Hi shoppers! At this point, it's likely that some gifts may not arrive in time for 6/18: it all depends on the retailer, the item, where you live, and how much $$$ you're willing to spend on expedited shipping.

    So please enjoy our gift ideas, but understand that, for many of these items, you'll have to simply let your loved one know that their gift may be arriving *later*.

    1. A ThermoPro meat thermometer with Bluetooth capabilities that'll let Dad know his steak is *perfectly* cooked to his liking — no more second guessing when he's workin' the grill while also trying to entertain guests with endless witty banter.

    2. A stylish desk clock Dad won't believe you thought of picking out for him all on your own (no worries — I won't tell him you discovered the idea while scrolling this list).

    3. An Adventure Challenge book designed for the whole family to get in on — it has 50 scratch-off activities to help dad and all his kiddos have a blast together while making unforgettable memories.

    4. A classic bocce ball set like the set your grandparents had growing up that'll bring back fond memories for them and help you all create new ones together.

    5. A pack of Happy Socks that'll make a delightful gift for the most fun dad in your life — and, ideally, encourage him to replace some of the socks he's worn so many times there are holes in 'em.

    6. A 64-piece iFixit kit for when their most used gadget gives out and they'd rather try to repair it themselves than buy a new one.

    7. A set of LED light saber chopsticks they'll probably misplace in their utensil drawer but then have the opportunity to exclaim "THESE are the ones I've been looking for!" once they finally find them. They'll also pair perfectly with you and your dad's annual re-watch of all the Star Wars films in order (4, 5,6, 1, 2, 3, of course).

    8. A pack of super-strong magnets Dad can attach to the top of the fridge to ensure their drink of choice is *always* refreshingly cold without taking up space for leftovers.

    9. A turntable to help bring music into the living room in an old school (but now super trendy) way while also adding in a conversational piece of decor.

    My husband has this record player and it's become such a beloved piece in our home. We love putting it on during dinner time and letting the music drift from the living room into the kitchen while we cook. Super soothing and gives you an excuse to start searching for all kinds of vinyl records to add to your collection. Note that you'll need to also pick up a pair of speakers to get the full experience.

    Shipping info: Available on Amazon Prime with 2-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Father's Day (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

    Get it from Amazon for $149.

    10. And an acrylic vinyl holder to store some of their favorite records while also showing anyone who sets foot in your living room what great taste in music they have.

    11. A wireless charger that'll open up to reveal an array of cords to ensure they'll be able to charge any device anywhere at anytime. Welcome to the future, Dad.

    12. A Lego Land Rover Classic Defender 90 for anyone who has always dreamt about owning this timeless vehicle and would happily settle for one made from Lego Bricks.

    My husband collects Lego cars and has them on display in his office — this was the most recent addition to his collection. He's been building Legos for decades now (literally), so this didn't take him very long at all to put together, despite the fact it has 2,336 pieces in the set. It looks very cool on the shelf, and he had a blast building it! Definitely worth the splurge for Lego and Land Rover fans.

    Shipping info: Orders typically ship in 3 to 5 business days, but you can upgrade to Express shipping for an additional fee.

    Get it from Lego for $239.99.

    13. Bananagrams – it'll *lit*erally bring a smile to any bookworm's face — it combines all the fun of crossword puzzles and Scrabble for a fast-paced game anyone who loves words will appreciate.

    14. A golf club cleaning squeeze bottle complete with a nylon brush that'll ensure dad's clubs, golf balls, and shoes are the freshest looking ones on the course.

    15. A Jeopardy trivia book to properly commemorate one of the greatest men to ever grace our televisions. You two can test each other and see who would actually become a Jeopardy champion.

    16. A heated eye massager complete with five different massage modes and Bluetooth music so they can fully indulge and relax while relieving pain from eye strain and headaches.

    17. mug warmer to keep on their coffee table so they can continue to sip on hot coffee even if they completely forgot about it while getting the kids ready for school.

    BuzzFeed editor Jenae Sitzes can confirm this gadget is worth the money:

    "After seeing this coffee warmer all over BuzzFeed Shopping and even gifting my dad one for Christmas, I finally decided to buy one for myself. Based on all the reviews, I was pretty confident I'd soon be kicking myself for not getting it sooner, and that proved to be true: This thing not only looks good, but works great for keeping my coffee warm all day long (because yes, I'm one of those people that'll sip on coffee until 5 p.m., all right!!). I was kind of worried it'd be too small for some of my larger mugs, but the center plate is bigger than expected and accommodated every mug in my (very eclectic) collection perfectly. I can confirm that flat-bottomed mugs are the best option for using with this warmer as they do stay hotter, but it still keeps my concaved-bottom mugs warm enough for my taste. Also, I looove how sleek the white version looks on my white desk, and the auto-shutoff function is a nice safety feature as an absent-minded person."

    Shipping info: Available on Amazon Prime with 2-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Father's Day (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

    Get it from Amazon for $19.79+ (available in six colors).

    18. And a hilarious mug that'll definitely start a lighthearted argument amongst you and your siblings, but will make Dad chuckle to himself when he uses it each morning.

    19. An easy-to-use ice cream scoop with a curved shape only a genius could've designed that'll smoothly cut through ice cream and create a picture-perfect scoop time and time again. Pair it with some of Dad's favorite pints for a delicious and thoughtful gift.

    Promising review: "I think I just found the best ice cream scoop ever! I was very surprised when I took it out of the box because it has some weight to it, so I knew right away that it would not break easily. It scoops ice cream beautifully and is dishwasher safe. I am so glad TikTok made me buy this!" —MamaKickAsh

    Get it from Amazon for $11.97+ (available in 13 colors and a two-pack). 

    20. The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom for Nintendo Switch — an absolute must-have for anyone who likes to unwind after the kids go to sleep with an open-world adventure. It'll be a great gift for the new dad who has been playing games from this franchise for years.

    My colleague Jenae says it best: "Tears of the Kingdom, for those unaware, is the direct sequel to 2017's mega hit Breath of the Wild, and it's easily the most anticipated Nintendo Switch game this year, maybe even the past *several* years. Though story details are somewhat slim, we know that Link will take to the skies and explore the mysterious islands floating *above* Hyrule as well as return to the sprawling landscapes below, with a host of new abilities to wield for puzzle-solving, exploration, and combat. I got the chance to play over an hour of Tears of the Kingdom at a recent Nintendo event, and it's gotten me seriously pumped for this latest Zelda adventure. Graphics- and gameplay-wise, it very much feels like Breath of the Wild, but with more freedom than ever before to manipulate the environment and get creative with how you approach, well, pretty much anything. I know I'll be diving in on release day (May 12!) and will probably lose over 100 hours of my life to TOTK like I did with BOTW, and if you love Zelda, open-world games, and (TBH) cozy vibes, it might just be the *best* way to treat yourself."

    Shipping info: Available on Amazon Prime with 2-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Father's Day (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

    Get it from Amazon for $69.99 (available physically or as a digital code, which can be redeemed on the Nintendo eShop). It's playable on any Nintendo Switch console, including Switch OLED and Switch Lite.

    Psst — if you've been itching to get a new console lately or upgrade your current Switch model, Nintendo just released a *gorgeous* special edition of the OLED model for Tears of the Kingdom, available for $359.99!

    21. A T-shirt with a racetrack on the back, so Dad can lay on the floor of the playroom and have a quick rest while simultaneously entertaining the kids. A win for everyone, if you ask me.

    22. An airplane phone holder to clip onto the tray in front of him whenever he travels — he'll never stress about only owning wireless headphones again! Added bonus? No need to *only* choose from the handful of meh movies the airline is showing.

    Promising review: "If you watch anything on your phone during a flight, you need one of these! I purchased for my husband and I for use on a recent flight, and they worked like magic. The design is lightweight and compact to pack, easy to 'hang' and adjust to keep your phone at eye-level to then sit back and relax. Definitely better than having to hold your phone in your lap or the tray table and get a kink in your neck looking down. Everyone sitting around us on the plane asked where we got them. Totally worth it and highly recommend." —Amy Fritzer

    Shipping info: Available on Amazon Prime with 2-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Father's Day (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

    Get it from Amazon for $12.97 (available in two colors).

    23. A standing weeder (without the chemicals!) for anyone with a bad back who still wants an award-worthy lawn. If there's anything I know about dads (or at least every man in my life) they'd love nothing more than a flawless lawn.

    Made with a bamboo handle and powder-coated steel, it uses a simple lever system to made weeding easy. Added bonus? Grampa's Weeder is a small business!

    Promising review: "Oh my god, I friggin' love this tool. I bought this on a whim given we bought our first house and know nothing about caring for a yard. Boy has it come in handy. Our new house had a ton of weeds in the front yard and this tool helped me get most of them out in no time. In fact, the process of yanking out the weed was strangely satisfying! I don't think anyone can say that weeding is fun but this tool made it as close to fun as you can get, especially when you see a long root along with the weed you pulled." —JG
