    3. A Death Star mold that will make the coolest ice cubes (or chocolate! or anything!) in the galaxy.

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99.

    4. A personalized photo desk calendar so he can be surrounded by photos of his awesome family even as he toils at work all day. DEF include the embarrassing photo of him with a terrible sunburn from summer vacation 2009, it'll be hilarious.


    You can even change your starting month so he can *actually* use the calendar for 12 months even though it's purchased in the middle of the year.

    Get it from SnapFish for $9.99+ (available in six sizes and three styles).

    5. An old school game of Risk. I've never met a father who didn't hold this weekend-eating game of world domination close to his heart.


    This is the version of Risk that my family and I have and can confirm: it's dad-approved. My dad is the one who asked me to put a game of Risk in a Father's Day post in the first place! Hi, dad!

    Promising review: "This is the classic version of the game I grew up with — the design of the board, wooden armies, etc. I bought it as a gift and could not be more pleased with it. Playing it brought back a lot of memories and made me nostalgic for family game nights and late nights playing board games rather than watching endless televisions, iPhones, and iPads. I recommend it for every cabin in the woods, beach house, lake house, and anywhere you place a premium on relaxed human interaction. —fanofhistory

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99 (originally $39.99).

    6. An adjustable baseball cap because hey — they're not called "dad hats" for nothin'.


    Promising review: "This cap is my favorite out of many I own. Caps costing over three times as much have not been as well made and do not fit me as well. I love the 'washed' look of the fabric. The weight is perfect and very comfortable. Even after being crushed for travel, this cap goes back to its original shape with no obvious wrinkles." —J. Sams

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99 (available in one size and 42 styles).

    7. A bottle of Mike's Hot Honey he'll want to put on literally everything from now until eternity. And if your dad's name is actually Mike, it's illegal for him NOT to own some, sorry it's the law!


    Promising Review: "Saw this on a Food Network show and decided to try! LOVE IT! Great honey taste with just a bit of heat at the end. My husband loves 'hot' foods and even grows his own peppers to put on anything. He really likes this on his French toast and I like it with peanut butter. However, I just made baked beans and added a tablespoon of Mike's Hot in addition to the brown sugar, and they were the BEST baked beans ever!" —Ritakc

    Get it from Amazon for $8.48.

    For more ideas of how to enjoy this "spicy ambrosia," check out "I Tried This Spicy Honey And It Changed How I Eat Every Meal."

    8. A minimalist watch perfect for the kind of dad who doesn't want too many bells and whistles — just a classic, stylish watch that tells the dang time.

    Nordstrom Rack

    Get it from Nordstrom Rack for $37.48 (originally $95).

    9. A pair of blue light–blocking glasses so he can stay glued to his news app all day without experiencing any eye strain.


    Blocking blue light can make screen time more comfortable as well as reduce symptoms of digital eye strain such as headaches.

    Get them from EyeBuyDirect starting at $25.

    Enter code "25OFF90FS" at checkout for 25% off all orders over $90 and free shipping.

    10. A mirrored cube puzzle that'll really let his problem-solving skills ~shine~.


    Promising review: "My family thought this might be easier than the colored cubes, because the size of the piece would give away where it should go. It's been three weeks since we started playing with it and no one has been able to solve it! It's a great gift idea for the 'brain' of your family." —Victoria

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99.

    Get it from the BuzzFeed merch shop on Amazon for $17.99.

    12. A birdhouse making kit for doing a fun craft with the kids, sitcom-style. The birds will be thankful too!

    Man Crates

    The crate includes laser cut wood pieces, hardware, sandpaper, a multi-colored acrylic paint pack, three paint brushes, and an instruction manual.

    Get it from Man Crates for $34.99.

    Check out the rest of their Father's Day crates for more gifting inspo.

    13. A record player so he can finally break out all of his old albums again. Let's just hope he keeps his Springsteen-esque jeans in the box.

    Need some records to go with? My dad recommends Miles Davis's Kind of Blue ($19.99 on Amazon), Led Zeppelin IV ($23.35 on Amazon), and The National's High Violet ($22.98 on Amazon).

    Promising review: "A very sturdy product and built to last. It is very well designed and great for the price. I love how it is easy to travel with. It was a Father's Day gift and my dad loved it." —T. Ficklen

    Get it from Amazon for $49 (available in 21 colors and patterns).

    14. A movie scratch-off poster for the dad who just hasn't been able to stop quoting The Goonies since he saw it in theaters in 1985.

    Uncommon Goods

    Promising review: "I got this as a gift for my husband. He is a movie lover and has seen most of these movies by himself at one point or another. He's always trying to get me to watch movies with him, and I thought this would be a perfect way for me to do so. He loved this, and it was by far his favorite gift. We have already started with watching and scratching off two movies. This is a good excuse for us to sit down together, after the kids are asleep and have a little date night. Words honestly can't describe how much I love this gift." —Ashley

    Get it from Uncommon Goods for $15.

    15. A Lifestraw personal water filter so you can always rest assured your outdoorsy dad will have clean, fresh water to drink on his frequent hikes.

    Promising review: "Used it on a hike recently; tried different configurations as shown, with the drinking straight out of the river, and out of a wide-mouth bottle. The flow-rate through the LifeStraw is a little reminiscent of drinking a really thick milkshake, which is understandable considering the filter basically gets everything. When I filled up my Nalgene with water from the stream, I could see the sediment start to settle; I even made sure to get some with the straw just to see. Worked like a charm. You just need to remember to blow into it afterwards to clear out the straw." —Kingston

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

    16. An Atlas Coffee Club subscription because you may not be able to give him the world...but you can give him coffee sourced from all over the world.

    17. A retro polaroid alarm clock for anyone whose father still "doesn't trust" cell phone alarms.


    This clock has dual time display, an indoor temperature display, a calendar display, and alarm and snooze option. It runs on three AAA batteries (not included).

    Promising review: "This clock is exactly what I needed. It's a really great compact alarm. It has all the bells and whistles. I'm very happy with it, except having it wake me up." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $4.97.

    18. A baby carrier for new dads who just want their little ones to be as close as possible literally all the time.


    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!" —Noah Gedrimas

    Get it from Amazon for $65.99+ (available in three colors).

    19. A Yeti Rambler mug that keeps coffee hot for a ridiculously long time by using double-wall vacuum insulation. Now pops can majestically stare into the distance while holding his coffee for as long as he wants, and it'll still be hot when he snaps out of it.

    A man in the snowy outdoors is in a parka dusted with snow and drinking from a white Yeti mug.

    Besides being used for hot liquids, the mug can also be used for serving things such as oatmeal *or* to keep cold beverages cold. It's dent-resistant, doesn't sweat (genius!), and is dishwasher-safe.

    Promising review: "I bought this Yeti for my Dad. He loved my mug so much he wanted one for himself. He absolutely loves it. It keeps his coffee hot, as it takes him a little while in the mornings to drink his coffee and that is what is what he uses it for. Great price!" —Kelly Stone

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99+ (available in nine colors).

    20. A knife set so he can stop saying that he needs to sharpen your really old kitchen knives soon and get to using nice, sharp ones right away.


    The set includes a paring knife, chef's knife, and utility knife, each with its own blade guard.

    Promising review: "Purchased as a gift for my mom, and she loves them!

    They are wood and steel, and the handles are really pretty. Also the guards they come with are nice, and they're very sharp! Great set for a great price — considering getting some for myself." —MiVi

    Get them from BuzzFeed's Goodful line, exclusively at Macy's for $23.93 (originally $57.99).

    21. A stuffed burger press because the only thing dad might love more than you is the glorious taste symphony of juicy meat and melty cheese.


    Promising review: "I love this burger press! Whether it's to fill with cheese, bacon, jalapeños, or whatever, this is an awesome tool for grilling season! Even if you aren't interested in stuffed burgers, it helps with making burger patties. Burgers are perfectly sculpted and your hands don't get completely covered in raw beef. But be sure to spray some Pam inside the press on the walls and the base, otherwise it's a major pain getting the patty to come loose." —AGonzales7

    Get it from Amazon for $10.86.

    22. A sandalwood shaving kit so he can treat himself to a luxurious shave smoother than he ever thought imaginable. Self care for dads, 2019!

    25. A adjustable leather belt without holes so he can stop using his Swiss Army Knife to create new holes that are just to his liking.


    Promising review: "What a clever idea — a belt without holes! It's quite easy to put together and cut to an appropriate size. To me, it seems quite sturdy and the plastic latches the belt uses to clamp it on look solid enough. They don’t appear to look like they will wear out or separate from the belt anytime soon. A belt with holes tends to get ugly fairly quick, especially for someone like me who fluctuates in weight. I would expect this to stay looking sharp at least as long as belts with holes. Seems like some quality was built into this one. I bought a brown one after finding the black one quite satisfactory. I don’t expect these to last forever but should last long enough to be worth the price." —Alphonsel

    Get it from Amazon for $14.42 (available in one size and two colors).

    I have these headphones and can confirm: they're super noise-cancelling!

    Promising review: "I got these for my father for Christmas and he loves them. He wanted a nice pair of Bluetooth headphones that weren't the inner ear kind and these were perfect. He uses them all the time and loves that they're noise-cancelling and that the sound comes out crystal clear." —Megann

    Get them from Amazon for $37.99+ (available in seven colors).

    27. A sous vide perfect for the dad who treats everything like a fun science experiment. This genius device lets you meticulously control the time and temperature at which your meat cooks, ensuring it's to your exact taste.


    Place the sous vide in a pot of water and place vacuum- or plastic-sealed meat inside to have it heated to the exact temperature you want for perfectly cooked steak, pork, chicken, and fish every single time! It can even pair with a phone app, and we all know that modern dads can't get enough helpful apps.

    Promising review: "This makes an eye of round roast as tender as a prime rib. Excellent product. Just plug the thing in, make sure your water level is good, and set it and forget it. This thing will cook absolutely perfect food every single time." —Leeway63

    Get it from Amazon for $78.85 (originally $99).

    Learn more about sous vide cooking in "I Tried The Precision Cooking Gadget That's All Over Pinterest." It's a different brand but gives you the vibe of the sous vide process if you're curious!

    28. A pair of loafers that couldn't be more "Dad" if they tried but you'll also want to borrow all the time, to be honest.

    River Island

    Get them from River Island for $70 (available in sizes 7–13 and two colors).

    29. A riveting copy of Does It Fart?: The Definitive Field Guide to Animal Flatulence because your dad knows a ton of useless — I mean — interesting facts, but I bet the specifics of animal toots aren't yet among them.


    Promising review: "This was a gift for my 45-year-old son! Yes, they never leave the fart phase. ;) But this book is actually filled with very interesting info — there's lots of science written in an entertaining fashion, and the simple illustrations fit perfectly. I'll admit that I read it before giving it to my son. He will now be the most popular teacher on his high school campus because hey, who else knows that sloths don't fart? LOL! If you're looking for something different for a gift, consider this. I think I'm going to order another one!" —Maryann Watkins

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99+.

    This version comes with a ~free~ smart lightbulb. An extra fun dad project!

    Promising review: "Got my parents this for Christmas, and they love it. It helps my mom with answering questions she has and with cooking-related questions and helps my dad with phone numbers and weather as well as news. Speaker is nice, I would highly suggest getting Amazon Music or Spotify Premium to help on the music end of things. It makes life a lot easier." —Amazon Customer

    Promising review: "I got this for a jigsaw puzzle crazed friend for her birthday and she loved it! She glued it together afterwards and had me write a note on it (props to her for being creative, cool, and sweet). There's no way I'd ever try to do this myself, but if you, or someone you know, loves a challenge, try doing this puzzle. 5/5 stars." —Nate

    Get it from Amazon for $16.86.

    32. A box of cookies and treats because Father's Day is a great excuse to chomp on some sweets and swig milk right out of the carton.


    Get it from Cheryl's for $29.99 (originally $29.99) and take 15% off sitewide with code CCOBUZZ15.

    33. A whiskey wedge and glass to give his old favorite libation a new ~slant~.


    Having minimal ice surface area touching the whiskey means it'll get less watered down. The set comes with a glass and silicone slant mold. Both are dishwasher safe.

    Promising review: "Bought these as a Father's Day gift for my dad. He is a single malt scotch guy and has previously used whiskey stones, the ball ice mold, and the large square ice molds. This is, by far, his favorite. He loves showing it off to his friends, too." —Jessica Potter

    Get it from Amazon for $17.95.

    34. A go-anywhere table tennis set so he can always get in a quick round of the best game ever after dinner. Or literally *over* dinner if he just can't wait.


    The set comes with two paddles, two balls, a retractable net, and comes in a handy carrying case. Grab some extra balls ($9.99 for a 60-pack on Amazon) if you foresee the ones included getting lost forever under your couch.

    Promising review: "This thing is great! I bought it as a stocking stuffer for my husband and he loves it. We actually set it up on the dining room table. It's very sturdy and the poles that hold the net are spring loaded so it holds tight no matter what size your table. The clamps that hold the poles up are also spring loaded so there's no damage to the table. It even comes with a travel bag and takes less than a minute to set up and take down. I'd highly recommend it to anyone with limited space or who likes to camp. I would also recommend buying a few more ping pong balls, though. It comes with two but they aren't the best." —Phillip or Laura

    Get it from Amazon for $19.21.

    35. A tortilla swaddle and cap for the new dad in your life who may need a bit of a chuckle in between changing diapers for his little burrito.

    Uncommon Goods

    Promising review: "The Tortilla Baby was a great gift for friends (he's an Executive Chef) celebrating the birth of their newborn son. The gift was humorous, fun, unforgettable, and actually practical for the new little 'baby burrito,' Ben. It was well-made with great graphics and quality materials. I bought it with the taco booties, too. So cute and fun!" —PopcornKate222

    Get it from Uncommon Goods for $48.

    36. A salt block and grill tool set so he can run towards the siren song of the grill well-prepared all summer long.

    Hickory Farms

    Cooking meat and veggies on a Himalayan pink salt block creates a depth of flavor beyond compare, but don't worry — it doesn't just make things overwhelmingly salty. The set comes with a salt block, apron, spatula, fork, tongs, and a tool wrap.

    Get it from Hickory Farms for $75.

    37. A sweet guitar pick that perfectly combines his love of Dad Rock and Dad Jokes.


    YES I capitalized "Dad Rock" and "Dad Jokes," they are capital "I" Important.

    Promising review: "My cool daughter bought this for me as a birthday present. I instantly tried it and noticed that the weight was perfect and it gave a much deeper, thicker, and fuller sound considering I was using it on an unplugged electric-acoustic. It was really the thought behind the gift that made it priceless to me, but the fact I love using it so much is an awesome bonus." —Darren De Wilde

    Shop Homesick's memory collection for more gift ideas.

    39. A Squatty Potty because the last thing dad wants to do after a long day at the office is spend a bunch of time in his "office."


    Promising review: "I've bought one of these for myself, my parents, and my friends. I'm not kidding. You may think I'm just some made up spam account, but I honestly have bought multiple squatty potties. Not to get too graphic, but when I'm doing my business I'll think almost nothing came out based on the amount of pushing I did. I'll turn around and the bowl is full. I've never seen so much come out of me so easily before. As long as you are also getting an appropriate amount of fiber in your diet, this will work better than sitting on the toilet normally. I almost don't want to use a toilet for number two unless there's a Squatty Potty." —Ludlum

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99.

    Get it from WizBitArt on Etsy for $13.47+ (available in three sizes).

    43. A box set of A Song of Ice and Fire — aka — all of the Game of Thrones books! No better way for him to mourn the end of the show than delve into months (years?) of reading about the same characters.


    The set comes with A Game of Thrones, A Clash of Kings, A Storm of Swords, A Feast of Crows, and A Dance with Dragons.

    Promising review: "I am a big fan of the HBO series and decided I wanted to read the books. I have gotten through the first so far and it is incredible. I find I have to Google characters every now and then because there are so many, but it is very nice to be able to put a face to each person. I am very excited to continue reading and am very happy with this boxed set. I even purchased another to give to my dad as a gift!" —samiam46

    Get it from Amazon for $29.97.

    44. A nail grooming kit that'll be essential whenever dad gets a little too into some yard work, resulting in dirt-caked nails.

    45. A circular saw pizza cutter — anything can be a DIY project if you have the right ~tools~.
