3. This versatile backpack ($37) for the organized dad.

Obligatory dad joke:

Make any dad a Baghdad!

Most promising review:

"The Grid-It system can be very useful if you like staying organized. Once you have your preferred setup, your belongings will usually stay in place. The Grid-It bands are interwoven with silicone/rubber strands for grip."

Todd

4. This sand-free ground mat ($45 to $138) for the beachy dad.

Obligatory dad joke:

Don't fall asleep on it! Otherwise you may get resting beach face.

Most promising review:

Orlando Carvallo

Get it here.

5. This fountain pen ($24) for the elegant dad.

Obligatory dad joke:

Be sure to get extra ink cartridges. Otherwise you'll be kicking yourself saying, "I can't even write now."

Most promising review:
"Unlike many companies, Lamy makes pens and pencils. They don't use pretentious euphemisms for pens like those other companies, nor do they charge 10x-100x what the pens are worth. They do make awesome pens like the Safari, which are indestructible and feel good in the hand, and they make some incredibly smooth nibs."

6. This magnetic knife/tool bar ($10 to $20) for the sharp dad.

Obligatory dad joke:

This might be the knifest rack I've seen.

Most promising review:

"This little item eliminates digging around for a favorite tool in a drawer or pot. In addition, the wood is attractive. You can't go wrong with this. Be sure to buy the largest one you can fit in your kitchen or garden shed or garage."

7. This coffee aged in whiskey barrels ($33) for the sophisticated dad.

Cooper's Cask Coffee

Obligatory dad joke:

A latte people like this coffee.

Most promising review:

"The first thing I noticed was the aroma. The combination of coffee and the barrel aging smells wonderful. You could make a scented candle based on this. The flavors combine just as well, and I liked it too much to dilute with cream and sugar."

Seth Albaum

8. This fuel-powered hand warmer ($7) for the cold dad.

Zippo

Obligatory dad joke:

On a lighter note, you won't freeze to death with this!

Most promising review:

"I'm really surprised at just how well these work at keeping me warm, and I do get chilled very easily. In times when I'd normally need a jacket, these keep me plenty comfortable without."

BeachBunny

9. These performance toe socks ($11) for the active dad.

Injinji

Obligatory dad joke:

These don't sock.

Most promising review:

"They worked like a charm. Injinji's claims of eliminating blisters turned out to be absolutely true, at least in my case. Wearing them, I never got a blister while backpacking over very rugged terrain in the mountains of the Southwestern U.S. — something that I can't say about my old silk liners."

Terry Sunday

10. These heat-resistant gloves ($30) for the dad who loves bonfires.

BlueFire

Obligatory dad joke:

With these you could give the hottest high fives around.

Most promising review:

"These gloves are AMAZING! I was able to HOLD DRY ICE then a FLAMING LOG: I barely felt either! They do what they say. I have been looking for these for a loooong time and I'm really glad I found them!"

11. This super-thin and sleek wallet ($13) for the minimalist dad.

Obligatory dad joke:

Don't leave it in the wash though. That would be money laundering.

Most promising review:

"This is the mother of all minimalist wallets and its added bulk (relative to what you want to carry in it) is as small as it gets. It is well made and holds your stuff securely."

G. Arnold

Get it here.

12. This small hatchet ($25) for the lumberjack dad.

Fiskars

Obligatory dad joke:

You can chop all your wood with this! It's good axe-ercise.

Most promising review:

"I've had this hatchet now for about 6 months and have used it to chop everything from dead pine and fir to hard rock maple and it's performed fabulously."

ColoradoWildMan

13. This pizza stone ($35) for the chefy dad.

Obligatory dad joke:

It costs a lot of dough, but you pay for the quality.

Most promising review:

"Really nice product. Seems solid (more so than previous $20+ stones I've had in the past years). While those stones worked and were adequate at half the price of this stone, they also didn't have the finish, weight, and thickness of this one."

14. This belt that ratchets to the perfect size ($37) for the fashionable dad.

Mission Belt

Obligatory dad joke:

A belt that won't be a waist of money.

Most promising review:

"I bought several of these belts as Christmas gifts. All the guys that got them loved them. They are good looking, well made and easy to adjust. Everyone loves that they can be adjusted by small amounts rather than the inch between the holes on normal belts."

15. This portable battery that can jump-start your car and charge all your devices ($60) for the auto-tech dad.

Nekteck

Obligatory dad joke:

You'll jump at the chance to use this.

Most promising review:

"My car battery died a few days ago and this device jump started my vehicle instantly! It was easy to operate and you don't need to ask someone for help. Definitely a lifesaver and I recommend to everyone."

17. This wraparound extension cord ($16) for the flexible dad.

Quirky

Obligatory dad joke:

Shockingly useful.

OK, I'll leave now.

Most promising review:

"A twist on your normal extension cord! Think of one of those straws that bend and retract.... now think of that 1000% more sturdy and super sized! You get a nice 'crackle' (which is normal) as you bend to your desired position!"
