    1. Golden Polaroid-inspired coasters for the dad who always made you pose for pictures growing up.

    They're made with tempered glass and you can customize them with whatever photos you want. For an extra-personal present, gift them with your favorite images already in them.

    Get a set of four from Asos for $19.

    2. A wedge ice cube set that'll perfectly chill your dad's libation WITHOUT watering it down — and it also happens to look really cool.

    The set comes with a double old-fashioned glass and a silicone mold to make the wedge of ice.

    Get it from Amazon for $17.95.

    Promising review: "We absolutely LOVE these whiskey wedge glasses. They are simple to use, durable, and are such a hit at dinner parties and cocktail hour. The wedge stays solid for a very long time and melts at the appropriate pace so as to not water down your drink. The bourbon drinkers around here are very pleased with the water melt ratio in this glass and we have since ordered three more to add to our first purchase! Highly recommend!!" —Haley E.

    3. A luxurious shaving set with a monogrammed brush, apothecary mug, brush stand, and cocoa and shea butter-infused shaving soap.

    Get it from Amazon for $15.03.

    Promising review: "I initially got this as a fairly inexpensive Christmas present for my boyfriend, trying to be creative and improve his life by buying a more luxurious hygiene item. He decided to try it the other day and he absolutely loved it. He loves the smell, saying it is very clean and manly. After shaving, he said he couldn't remember the last time his face felt so smooth.The brush really stands the hairs on his face up for a closer shave, and the soap was perfect for the gliding action of the razor. The packaging was great and simple, and the apothecary cup is very handsome and a generous size. The amount of soap will last quite some time. After one use, it's difficult to see if a dent was even made in the amount of soap provided." —Rida Alvi

    4. A Game of Thrones-inspired comb perfect if your dad's coif and facial hair are starting to look like Shaggydog.

    RIP Shaggydog.

    Get it from Enjoy the Wood on Amazon for $9.99. You can even get it engraved, too!

    Promising review: "I just had to have it. It's a gift for my boyfriend; we are both obsessed with Game of Thrones. But this shipped quicker then I thought it would. I got it a week before the actual date. The comb is beautifully crafted. It was better then I expected. Whoever made this did an amazing job! It's perfect and so detailed. I will definitely order from them again. Fast shipping and an amazing product. You can't beat this! I'm so excited to give him this gift!!" —Ava

    Get it from Amazon for $14.95.

    Promising review: "These charts are the best I have found to chart a family tree. Plenty of space to write. Mismatch Enterprises has excellent customer service and fast shipping!" –Carrie

    7. A chrome puzzle cube with different-sized squares that make it even more challenging than a Rubik's cube — plus it looks really cool (even unfinished) as a desk accessory.

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99.

    Promising review: "This thing is fantastic! I've recently gotten into shape-shifting puzzles and this a great place to start from the regular 3x3. This is easily my smoothest-turning puzzle. I have done probably 20 solves so far and have had no hangups or issues what so ever. It just looks awesome in both its solved state and scrambled." —John M.

    8. A canvas and faux leather backpack to add a dose of dapper to the daily schlep.

    Get it from Amazon for $27.90. Also available in charcoal.

    Promising review: "Best backpack for the money, hands-down. Oh man this backpack is so cool. I used it for my trip to Europe and I was getting compliments daily on how it looked, from strangers and friends alike. Love that it has buckles in the front. Now I know it says large backpack, but it's like a standard size tbh. But I still fit a travel pillow, my bible notebooks and toiletries all in there with no problem. The quality is AMAZING. It's a super nice canvas material, and though I've stepped on it, slept on it, dropped it a ton of times and still looks good." —Frank

    9. An insulated water bottle that'll keep water cold for 24 hours and turns staying hydrated into a fashion statement.

    Get it from Amazon for $19.95.

    Promising review: "This thing is amazing. Got it for a Father's Day gift and at first I was bummed because I wanted a Yeti like my wife has. I start using it thinking it would be just another water bottle. Not so. This thing keeps my drinks intensely cold. I was out showing a house (real estate agent) and left it in the car while I walked the place with my clients. Came back out an hour later to the gorgeous 95-degree weather and just knew it would be warm, as the inside of the vehicle was burning up. I popped the lid and poured it in. It was like liquid ice. No joke. And I hadn't even added ice. It was as cool as it was when I poured my drink in from the fridge before I left the house. Buy it. You're welcome." —David Banker

    10. A mustache grooming kit for the Ron Swanson enthusiast whose 'stache needs a little upgrade.

    It includes mustache wax, trimming scissors, and a novelty-shaped comb, all in an adorable and travel-friendly tin.

    11. Polarized sunnies in a retro style that looks like you spend $$$ on Ray-Bans (but actually cost less than $10!).

    Get them from Amazon for $7.99.

    Promising review: "These are now the only sunglasses I will buy. They are great quality and for the price, you simply can't go wrong. I had these sitting on a table next to my friend's $200 Ray-Ban Wayfarers and you almost couldn't tell the difference. I have seriously purchased these sunglasses several times (because I unfortunately have a dog who seems to think they taste better than they fit). Love these!" —Christopher M. Davis

    12. A wind-up robot DIY kit for the dog dad who wishes he could bring his pupper to the office.

    When you wind this heckin' good doggo up, he sings and even does a little jump! 12/10 would put on desk.

    Get it from Amazon for $17.98.

    Promising review: "I do not do well on planes. That scene in Bridesmaids where she is running around the plane freaking out — that's me. And sometimes I want to feel fancy when I am trying to drink away my fear. These Carry On Cocktails do the trick." —Helen Boucher

    14. A classic wristwatch with a minimalist dial and a leather strap to serve as the perfect finishing touch to any outfit.

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99.

    Promising review: "This watch is awesome! I get complemented a lot while wearing this! Every time someone asks me what the brand is, I tell them how much I spent on it and they're blown away! Looks fancy and expensive, and the quality is pretty great too. I haven't had any problems with it so far.

    I highly recommend this product for someone on a budget who wants to look fancy." —Elric16

    Get it from Amazon for $35.

    Promising review: "The perfect storage for my vinyl collection! It's sleek, modern and I love the fact that I can easily flip through my records. So happy I found this, because it's by far better than anything else I've looked at. I'm going to buy a second one." —Modern Decor Fan

    17. 18K white gold-plated cufflinks personalized with your dad's inital.

    Nothing says "Look how thoughtful I am!" like a personalized gift. Plus, they come in a nice velvet gift box.

    Get them from Amazon for $21.99.

    Promising review: "These are awesome quality (strong, sturdy), and I love the style. I bought them for a wedding I was attending and they were a fantastic addition to my overall outfit. I'd definitely recommend these. Plus, the engraved initial makes for a nice touch." —Amazon Customer

    18. A golden box grater for the paterfamilias whose mac 'n' cheese recipe is as good

    Get it from Huckberry for $24.98.

    19. Noise-isolating headphones with beautiful wood detailing, crisp audio, and a strong bass so they both look AND sound amazing.

    Get them from Amazon for $25.99.

    Promising review: "I have had these earbuds for a little under a year and have really enjoyed them the entire time. They produce good quality sound and do a decent job of muffling noise, to the extent that I no longer bring my larger over-ear, noise-canceling headphones. I have really enjoyed the ability to pause my music/podcast with the button on the cord, and the clip to attach them to your shirt works great as well. What is really outstanding is the customer service. I called in today because the glue holding one of the headphones together had come apart and the headphone no longer worked. Luckily I was within the 1 year warranty, and within 5 minutes, they had verified the problem, confirmed my original order, and sent a new pair of headphones to my new address. I would highly recommend products from Symphonized because of this alone." —Goose

    20. A phone dock crafted from white oak that'll add some rustic charm to your charging station and keep it neat.

    Get it from Woodland Fever on Etsy for $29.99.

    Promising review: "Really beautiful and seems very sturdy. Shipped quickly, love the wood they chose to use, and I think my husband will love it for Father's Day. Thank you!" —Alex Whatton

    21. Flannel-lined slippers to make every day a little cozier.

    Get them from Amazon for $29.95. Sizes: 7-13.

    Promising review: "Best features are the soles which don't slip on wet surfaces or ice for the occasional trip outside, the not-too-thick wool blanket-like lining, and best of all the laces are not faux leather but real shoe laces which allow one to truly adjust the fit when they stretch a bit to become your "well-worn" favorites. Great pair of slippers!" —Mark K.

    22. A Penguin Classics hardcover edition of his favorite novel that'll make any bookshelf look more like an old timey castle library.,

    Get The Odyssey for $15.83 and War and Peace for $22.92. Check out the full range of available titles on Amazon.

    Promising review: "I am a big fan of this new series from Penguin Classics. The hardcover bindings (each featuring a stylized pattern that relates--sometimes subtly, sometimes obviously--with the subject of the book), the high-quality pages, and the ribbon bookmark all make these books attractive collectibles. But I also really enjoyed the content of this book. The prose translation was accurate but not slavish. I felt like I was reading a novel. The introduction was also highly readable and informative--I actually wanted to read it, which is unusual." —Tess R. Stockslager

    23. A felt and faux leather laptop sleeve to keep your dad's tech safe and stylish — it looks so nice, he won't even have to carry it in a briefcase.

    Get it from Amazon for $9.49.

    Promising review: "I love this case. I've had it for quite a while now and it is still holding up nicely. I've gotten many compliments on how nice it looks as well. And the material is not something that's going to hurt my laptop" —Nick

    24. A golden scratch-off map for your favorite travel buddy (and maybe drop a hint for an upcoming trip).

    Get it from Amazon for $20.95.

    Promising review: "This is the second map we've purchased, and we've had fun scratching off the places we've been and dreaming about the places we'll go! Our missionary daughter has the first map and it is quite the conversation piece in her apartment." —S. Moss

    Now just pop a bottle of the good stuff and say "Thanks, Dad!"
