Father’s Day is just around the corner, and I know I’m not alone in wondering “what the hell do I get my dad?” I’m a fan of splurging, but I also know that it’s what he’ll love most over what costs the most. If you’re panicking on what to get your own father, these Father’s Day gifts will get you through the holiday. I’ve included splurges for those who want to go all out, as well as affordable dupes. Now get shopping!
Assouline’s book is up there price-wise, but it’s filled with every tidbit of information a dad may want to know about whiskey. From whiskey’s history to the 100 bottles it explores, he’ll be a true whiskey connoisseur. The World Atlas of Whisky is a perfect, more affordable dupe, explaining the process and taking you to more than 200 distilleries around the world.
I own a few Wüsthof knives, and they are my absolute favorites. This seven-piece knife block set has five stars thanks to its high-carbon, no-stain, weighted blades, which will give him a precise cut no matter what he’s chopping. Cuisinart’s 15-piece block set is more affordable, but it has extremely high ratings, so he won’t be missing out.
If your dad wants to practice his golf swing, he can play a variety of virtual courses with the Phigolf simulator through the WGT app and Phigolf app. (He can show off the next time he goes out to the real course.) JEF WORLD OF GOLF’s collapsible chipping net is extremely durable, and each target hole has its own net — never question the swing’s accuracy again.
If your dad likes to block out the world, Master & Dynamic’s noise-cancelling headphones will be his dream come true. Best part: their battery lasts for 12 hours on a 15-minute charge. Plattan’s headphones are also Bluetooth, so you can say goodbye to cords. One charge lasts 30 hours, and they’re collapsible when not in use to save space.
What can the Apple Watch do after so many upgrades? The answer: well, a lot. Measure blood oxygen, track activity, check heart rhythm with an ECG app, and monitor sleep all in one watch. The Suunto 3 is also top-notch, counting steps, collecting sleep data, and measuring stress levels to keep him highly aware of his health throughout the day.
If your dad travels a lot, The Bigger Carry-On is ideal for him. With a compression system and a laundry bag, he’ll stay organized. Bonus for the seasoned traveler: it comes with a TSA-safe battery to charge his phone with. Terminal 1’s carry-on is ultra-durable and luxe as hell by combining polycarbonate with leather detailing.
There’s nothing quite as nice as a warm shave, so gift him this razor starter kit. The stainless steel warming bar heats up for that hot-towel shave, with four sensors keeping the heat even throughout. Harry’s Truman Set’s base has a weighted core, giving him total control, while the heads have flex hinges and lubricated strips for close, razor-burn-less shaves.
Items Under $100
