    1. A heartfelt fill-in-the-blank journal that'll make even the most aloof dads melt.

    2. Anatomy of a Song: The Oral History of 45 Iconic Hits That Changed Rock, R&B and Pop by music historian Marc Myers, a book that'll give any music-loving dad an inside look at the making of some of his favorite tunes.

    3. A mouth-watering gift box of organic spices and seasonings to make his home-cooked meals and grill creations even better (which you honestly didn't know was possible).

    4. A delightfully punny card for the man who's always there to offer ~kernels~ of wisdom.

    A card with a cute little personified piece of popcorn with a mustache patting its kernel "child" on the head. It reads "There is no butter pop than you"

    5. Or a card that's pretty cheesy — but something tells me he'll still love it.

    The card has five blocks of cheese drawn on it and reads "This is the cheesiest Father's Day card I could find"

    6. A sharp-looking waterproof watch he'll probably think you spent a ton of money on.

    7. A sophisticaped map-etched glass so he can sip his favorite beverage while appreciating his favorite city. Because if your dad is anything like mine, the only thing he enjoys more than a cold drink is geeking out over maps.

    8. A handy smart plug that truly lives up to its name: your dad can sync it with his smart home devices or control it through an app to easily turn lights and appliances on and off. He'll never have to yell at anyone to turn the damn lights off ever again!

    9. A sweet stainless-steel guitar pick worthy of any dad who totally rocks.

    10. Mike's Hot Honey, an all-natural, chili-infused honey your spice-loving pops is gonna want to put on everything.

    11. Some super cool sunglasses that are available in several funky colors, actually practical for outdoor activities, and amazingly affordable. That pricey but kinda ugly pair he's had for ages? Heading into retirement.

    12. Some fancy dark chocolate almonds sure to be the ~sweetest~ gift he's ever received.

    13. A sheet of custom stickers featuring the face of a family member or pet for a gift that'll stick out from the basic cards your siblings sent.

    14. A pair of socks for the man who confidently owns every terrible one-liner that has ever come out of his mouth.

    Socks that read "Ain't no bad joke like a dad joke" and feature a sketch of a pleased-with-himself dad lounging in an armchair

    15. Jack Black Industrial Strength Hand Healer, a hella nourishing cream with vitamins A and E to provide some major relief to his super dry hands.

    16. A professional-looking genealogy chart he can fill in instead of just telling you stories about about your Great-Great-Grandpa Steve for the hundredth time.

    A poster-sized piece of parchment that reads "genealogy" at the bottom and has space to fill in names throughout the generations, with the left side labeled for paternal ancestors and the right for maternal ancestors

    17. A stylish leather bracelet for the dad who's not a regular dad, he's a cool dad. In fact, he's the best dad, and you can even have the inside of the clasp engraved to say so.

    18. A punny tee, because your dad shouldn't have to go fishing for compliments on Father's Day.

    19. An amazingly affordable, portable, water-resistant speaker so he can jam out wherever he goes. Warning: it may cause him to break out his signature air guitar routine or force you to hear him singing in the shower. And if your dad is like mine, singing is not exactly one of his talents.

    20. A LOL-worthy video e-card starring the man himself, your dad. When you upload the pic, it'll automatically be animated into the video so his lips will move like he's saying the dialogue or singing the song!

    21. A set of gold foil playing cards as a way to thank your dad for spending countless hours teaching you to play cards and to really show you karat about him.

    22. A luxe shave set because your pops deserves something a cut above his old drugstore razor.

    23. A clever ticket stub diary so he can save souvenirs of games, concerts, plays, and more. It even has lined spaces in the margins to write notes about favorite memories.

    24. A chic camera strap so that the next time he goes on vacation rocking the classic dad-with-camera-around-his-neck look, he'll at least be ~stylin'~.

    25. A 20-page mini photo booklet full of favorite pictures and personal messages for a keepsake he'll treasure forever (and one that's actually in your budget).

    26. A comfy 100% cotton shirt he'll wear all summer long.

    27. A classic baseball glove that you should definitely gift along with an offer to go play a game of catch right away.

    29. An insulated tumbler and set of stainless-steel straws for a polished and practical gift he'll love.

    30. Or a minimalist mug that just about sums it up.
