    Promising review: "When I saw The Comfy on Shark Tank I just knew I had to have one. I live near the beach and it is perfect for chilly mornings and cool evenings. I absolutely love mine. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the fabric. It feels so luxurious that I want to wear it all the time. I bought myself a navy blue one, but I am already thinking of getting a couple more ordered for both my kids. Great product." —Kat

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99 (available in 11 styles, and o/s).

    2. A 3D pop-up card that'll earn a spot on Dad's shelf/a place in his heart, rather than the garbage a few weeks after Father's Day.

    Promising review: "The quality of Lovepop cards is incredible and the joy it brings to whoever receives it is priceless! I got this card for my husband from his two dinosaur-loving toddler sons. He loved it. He proudly displays it on a shelf in his office at home and gets a smile on his face every time our boys see it and say Daddy T-Rex!!" —Alexis Estep

    Get the beer pop-up card (above) for $13, and be sure to check out the entire Lovepop shop on Amazon.

    3. An insulated water bottle he can also use as a blender bottle. It's perfect for cold beverages and protein drinks.

    This bottle can hold ice for up to 30 hours! It features a BPA-free leak-proof pop top that's easy to open, but still ensures no messes or leaks. This is also a sweat-proof bottle!

    Promising review: "I have had several plastic shakers in the past year that cracked. I was looking for a more durable option. When I saw this on Shark Tank, I ordered it! The price was a little more than I wanted to pay but it's turned out to be so worth it! I have used it for a lot of things and it has zero odor, is easy to clean, and it keeps everything cold for so long. Everyone in the office has been informed of just how awesome this product is." —Scott

    Get it from Amazon for $27.95+ (available in six colors).

    4. An acupressure tool to help Dad enjoy a nice massage whenever he wants, without ever having to leave the bedroom.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Was hoping this would take my job of massaging my wife's back when she gets these little gravel-like knots in her muscles. It did! Saw it on Shark Tank. She loves it! The padded handle is great." —rrr

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99.

    5. A protein-packed donut, yes you read that right, from The Dough Bar. These delicious treats are baked, not fried, and are a super yummy alternative to protein bars. Plus, they have gluten-free options!

    Some notable flavors include cake batter glaze, blueberry glaze, apple pie glaze, cocoa cookie butter glaze, red velvet glaze, and peanut butter and jelly glaze — just to name a few!

    Get them from The Dough Bar starting at $11.49 for a pack of four.

    6. A tube of Nerdwax for giving your dad the very wonderful gift of not having to deal with slippery glasses sliding off his face all-the-time.

    It helps to first wipe off any surface oils from the glasses. It can last one hour to all day depending on how much is applied, and a single tube of Nerdwax can last for about six to eight months.

    Promising review: "I got this for my wife. She has naturally oily skin and wears plastic framed glasses so has problems with them constantly slipping down her face. This product works great to help hold her glasses in place without raising the center of vision like with pads. The wax will wear off naturally, so she applies the wax every day or two. But don't worry, the wax won't wipe off and stick to your face, it just seems to sort of disappear." —Anthony

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    7. A sweat-proof undershirt so when Dad is getting dressed, he doesn't have to worry about future pit stains and sweating through his clothing.

    Amazon

    These undershirts are made with patented underarm sweat pads that boast stopping 100% of armpit sweat. They are chemically treated so they won't lose their effectiveness over time — hence the pricey, but v worth it price tag. The shirts are machine washable and dryer-safe!

    Promising review: "I didn't know these even existed until seeing them on an episode of Shark Tank. I gave them a try and wow! No more sweat spots. I have hyperhidrosis and sweat a lot, mostly in my armpits and hands. I would always sweat through my shirts, even with wearing an undershirt. With this shirt, I have yet to see any sweat spots. It fits well as an undershirt." —RoBroKnos

    Get it from Amazon for $34.99+ (available in four colors, and sizes XS–3XL).

    8. Groovebook — a service that'll allow Dad to take all of his fave photos from his mobile phone and convert them into awesome photo books he'll cherish for years to come.

    How it works: First he'll download the free Groovebook app from the App Store or Google Play and sign up.

    9. A service that'll allow Dad to refill his entire basics drawer with up to 19 products (ranging from socks to underwear to T-shirts to joggers and more) for just $70!

    This didn't actually get a deal from the sharks, but that doesn't mean it can't strike a deal with you. Read BuzzFeed's full review of this service.

    Get it from Basic Outfitters for $70.

    10. A pack of cupcakes in jars that anyone, even those whose sweet-tooth game isn't so strong, will want to dig a spoon into immediately.

    Get them from Wicked Good Cupcakes starting at $21.45 for a two-pack.

    11. A set of acoustic filter earplugs that'll come in handy to help reduce noise-levels — a perfect way to thank him for tolerating the fact that you blast your music loud enough that the neighbors could probably hear it.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "These have been life-changing for me. Due to personal health issues, I have become very sensitive to sounds. These are a way to get through loud birthday parties, my daughter's activities, concerts, or even church services. I can hear what I need to hear without being bothered by all the accumulation of background noises. All doing so discretely. Also, l love the tiny hard case. I keep them in my purse at all times." —Amazon Customer

    Get them from Amazon for $23.98.

    12. A smart notebook for a cool, and dare I say, even fun (?) note-taking experience. Spiral notebooks are so yesterday.

    Amazon

    While this one didn't get a deal from the sharks, it's still an awesome, v legit product, promise! He can download the Rocketbook app for Android or iOS, and send his notes instantly to Google Docs, DropBox, iCloud, Evernote, and more. To erase, just pop this into the microwave! It can be reused up to five times.

    Promising review: "I love this notebook — Shark Tank be damned! This is a very cool product and a great way to keep your notes electronically, but also have the time to process through handwriting (which the experts say is important). Great product — makes note-taking fun again!" —JeannieInMD

    Get it from Amazon for $20.73.

    13. A frywall because we all agree (dads included) that all foods taste better when they're fried. We can also all agree that frying up Dad's favorite foods and running the risk of dangerous/painful oil splatters isn't so great.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I used my Frywall for the first time tonight to fry sole filets. Worked like a charm. I was surprised by the amount of oil that accumulated on the Frywall. That's grease that would have ordinarily gone onto the stove, counter and wall. It fit nicely in my 10.5-inch All Clad saute pan which means it should also work in the All Clad saucepans since the lids are exactly the same. I washed it by hand and left it on the open dishwasher door to dry." —ezreader

    Get it from Amazon for $18.95+.

    14. Glasses holders so when he's not wearing his glasses, he can still keep them nearby without having to hold them or put them back in their case.

    Promising review: "I can't tell you how many reading glasses I've killed in the past few years, largely from jettisoning them from my breast pocket or hooking them awkwardly in my shirt collar. These clips are amazing. They're discreet enough that I don't look like a goon wearing one on my shirt all day, and when I hang my glasses from them I can tie my shoes without spilling them lens-first on the ground. What else can a fellow ask for?" —Asha Ember

    Get them from Amazon for $18.99 (available in two colors).

    15. A rapid ramen cooker to help him quickly whip up a delicious ramen meal so he can spend more time doing, idk, whatever it is that dads do.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This thing may seem like just an ordinary Tupperware, but I assure you it will blow that thin plastic garbage out of the water. It retains heat amazingly and does not bend or falter under extreme temperatures. I'm a college student and I have never felt such joy from making ramen in my small dorm microwave. For a 900 watt, I recommend five minutes. Buy this product if you live and breathe air, because it is beautiful." —Theron

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99 (available in six colors).

    16. A leather belt without holes that'll allow Dad to perfectly adjust his belt's sizing the way HE wants, rather than settling for the closest possible option.

    Amazon

    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 $24.99 (available in o/s).
