    5. An inflatable kayak you can get your father if you know he ~blows up~ when he hasn't had enough time out on the lake and would appreciate a new excuse to go out there.


    Promising review: "I am a T-2 paraplegic and a water baby at heart and have always wanted a kayak, but my lack of trunk control and balance has kept me from enjoying one. This boat is AMAZING! It is completely stable and gave me no worries of flipping over. I was able to unpack it, inflate it, get in it and go in no time at all. The material is super tough and feels very solid. Once inside the cockpit you feel nice and snug, and the skeg gives you great control over the craft. I plan on spending as much time on the water as possible with my new favorite toy! This is a great product!!" β€”Richard Baker

    Promising review: "These headphones changed my life. I am a computer professional who travels A LOT. Whether I'm at my desk or on the road, the noise cancelling on these is a life-saver. I can easily stay in the zone at work, drowning out any distractions. When I'm flying, I can't even hear the plane engines. These are worth every penny." β€”Sean S.

    10. A baby carrier for new dads who want their kiddo wrapped around them as tight as their newborn has them wrapped around their little finger.


    Promising review: "This is so much easier to put on compared to other wraps. It's also cooler and has better head support for my baby when facing inward. My baby doesn't sink down into it, it looks better than other wraps, and I also like the option of having my baby facing out. I have been using it daily for a few weeks now and we love it! So comfortable!" β€”Noah Gedrimas

    Get it from Rumpl for $129.

    12. A hammock sleeping bag to let your dad know how much you appreciate ~hanging~ out with him.


    Promising review: "I've never had a bag this warm. In the cabin of my boat I used just this as a blanket on a night in the teens. This is just long enough to pull over my face when it's zipped into the sleeping bag configuration and my feet are at the bottom. I've used it almost every night for over a month now and I've only seen two loose down feathers. I've never seen something insulated with down that didn't loose one or two a day. You will never find gear this good for this low a price, used or new." β€”huck

    Get it from Amazon for $149.97 (available in three colors).

    13. A pair of Ralph Lauren sweatpants for the dad who always asks for a nap for Father's Day, but whose worn-out pajamas look even more tired than he does.

    Get it from Casper for $129.

    15. A leather padfolio case that'll keep him organized on the go.


    Promising review: "This is expensive, but you definitely get what you paid for! The build quality is excellent and being 100% leather, it is both beautiful and durable. The leather is very thick and every seam meticulously sewn together with very tight stitching. I'm very pleased with this purchase." β€”Joshua

    Get it from Amazon for $70 (available in two colors).

    16. A seriously good looking charging dock, because your dad knows he is large and in ~charge(d)~...but his phone never seems to be above 52% β€” this just might help him get that satisfying full battery he deserves.

    Get it from Amazon for $44.99.

    19. A cool gel memory foam pillow, because your dad sometimes says you're a pain in his neck and this can help solve that problem... without you having to stop all your hilarious practical jokes.


    Promising review: "I have been searching for a pillow that works for me and finally found it. I almost can't believe how perfect it is. The foam has ideal firmness, it supports my neck while allowing my head to sink in just right. I switch from back to side sleeping and the pillow accommodates both sleeping positions. The cool gel keeps the pillow from heating up so I don't want to flip it around like I do with most pillows. I highly recommend this pillow." β€”Julie

    Get it from Amazon for $32.47.

    20. And a set of cooling sheets "made specifically for men" (who are said to tend to sleep hotter) to keep your dad cool when you've done something to make his temperature rise.

    This uses an LED light with a self-timer to help plants grow without any sunlight at all. Seriously, just throw your plants in this, give them some water, and away they'll grow!

    Get it from Food 52 for $150.

    23. A seat cover massage pad sure to add a whole new luxurious level to your dad's den. Just be prepared to never see him stand up ever again.

    Promising review: "This massage cushion is literally the best thing I have ever purchased. There are so many options to this chair that you can spend hours on it. There are four deep massaging nodes and you can pick your targeted massage zone. You can select full back, top of back, and lower back. You can also select how deep you want the massage. It can be as vigorous as you want or as relaxed. You can use this item in your home (where it's on my recliner), in the office, even in your car. It's VERY lightweight, so you don't have to keep it in one spot. There are many other options as well, such as the vibration massage, heated massage, and rolling massage. In addition, there is an auto timer you can control. I highly recommend this item and would suggest this to anyone who wants a nice relaxing massage. Get this! You WON'T regret it!" β€”Gnaps22

    Get it from Amazon for $59.95.

    24. A messenger bag for the dad who appreciates practicality, durability, and an unnecessary amount of pockets.


    Promising review: "Wow! What a great bag. You will not be disappointed. This is very well made, has plenty of pockets, and is well designed. Depending on the adventure, I like to just throw some essential in this bag and take off. All together it can fit my camera, accessories, a shirt or towel, water bottle, bars, note pad, tablet, flashlight, batteries, light tools, and a few more small items. Throw this around your shoulder, make a quick adjust of the strap, and you're good for the day. This really will fit your individual needs." β€”FJD

    Get it from Amazon for $44.99+ (available in eleven sizes and 79 colors).

    25. A handcrafted leather wallet your dad will love so much, he may even give you some of the cash he puts inside it.

    Rose Anvil

    Get it from Rose Anvil for $45 (available with customized pockets and threads).

    26. A quality speaker so he can rock out in the comfort of his own home (instead of at yours).


    Promising review: "This is the most amazing speaker. The setup is super easy and it really gives you unbelievable sound for just one speaker. I still can't believe the quality of the sound. This product is amazing, the tuning is fun and helpful, and the sound is better than my multi-speaker setup (clearly because of the tuning app I used during the setup). The next holiday season will be filled with perfectly clear, exceptionally filling music in my living room. This product is worth every penny. Saving for the next one because they can connect and talk and play in different rooms, syncing the music. I can't wait." β€”Charlie B.

    Get it from Amazon for $149.

    27. A grownup Lego set sure to help your relationship ~take off~ even though he sometimes thinks you're a little ~spacey.~


    And for all the history buff fathers out there, this set has exactly 1969 pieces, which is the year of the Apollo 11 mission.

    Promising review: "I just finished building this last night in a five hour cream soda and licorice building binge. It's LEGO, so it's good quality, the design makes sense, and it was a lot of fun. The finished set is very tall (or long depending on how you choose to display), unless you choose to display it as separate booster units. Instructions were easy to understand β€” the booklet is the size of a magazine and contains some really great supplementary material about the Apollo mission, pictures, and information about the process of design. This is worth the money." β€”trailblder

    Get it from Amazon for $119.95.

    28. An Echo Spot, because Alexa will be way better at doing what your dad asks than you ever were.


    The Echo Spot is a hands-free, voice-controlled device that uses Alexa to play music, control smart home devices, make calls, send and receive messages, provide information, read the news, set music alarms, and read audiobooks from Audible. It can also control Amazon Video on Fire TV, give random facts throughout the day, tell you the weather, and can show you grocery lists, recipes, and set timers... I'm still just trying to figure out what my Echo Spot CAN'T do.

    Promising review: "I am not one for reviews but I just had to write this. This thing is a work of art. My whole house is a smart house, from my locks to my thermostats. I have one Echo, four Echo Dots and now one Echo Spot. I love this. It works as expected. I am a total Apple guy but I choose Alexa over Siri any day. Amazon has knocked it out of the park!" β€”Apply Guy

    Get it from Amazon for $129.99 (available in two colors).

    29. A UV cell sanitizer so you can give your dad a way to clean up his phone after all the times he's told you to clean up your language when you text him.


    PhoneSoap is designed to sanitize their phone via UV light in 10 minutes and also serves as a charger.

    Promising review: "I bought this for my wife as a birthday gift and she loves it! It's perfect for a germaphobe, and so much better than using a disinfecting wipe. You don't have to risk damaging your phone by getting it wet. We even have our guests use it when they come over. I definitely recommend it!" β€”Brad

    Get it from Amazon for $59.95 (available in nine colors).

    31. An iPad Pro that's sure to show your father you're the ~apple~ of his eye.


    Promising review: "This is everything I ever wanted! I bought an Apple Pencil to go with it and they work together perfectly. I have sped up my art flow immensely.

    35. Or a Hydro Flask to keep your dad hydrated if he refuses to drink water that isn't ice cold.


    Promising review: "This is amazing! It's the best water bottle I have ever owned. It keeps ice in it for days. I went to the gym at 5:30 am on a Thursday and then went camping Thursday afternoon. I drank all the water and continued to fill it up. I wanted to see how long the ice would last so I tested it out. Friday it was still about 3/4 full of ice. I filled it twice with water on Friday. Then Saturday I checked and it was still half full of ice. My family and I hiked all day Saturday and by the end of the day the ice was near the bottom. So that’s two in a half days of ice cold water. Amazing!! I’ll be purchasing more of these." β€”Mammabug
