To help save you time, energy and endless scrolling, we chose 18 highly rated Father’s Day gift options from Select editors' and readers' favorite brands.
If your dad is constantly asking to throw his oversized wallet into someone else’s bag, gift him this space-saving cardholder that holds cash and up to twelve cards while remaining less than one inch thick. Its RFID-blocking technology prevents wireless fraud by protecting your credit cards’ electromagnetic signal, according to the brand. Plus, it comes in 30 unique colors, allowing you to tailor it to your dad’s taste
A Select Wellness Awards winner, the newest Apple Watch is perfect for any father figure who’s interested in optimizing their health data. Shari Uyehara, manager of editorial operations, wore this watch over the course of one month and loves how easy it is to make sense of her sleep patterns, track information about her heart rate and assess how many calories she's burned during a workout.
For the dad who’s coffee cup is never empty, this smart mug from Ember will keep all of his warm beverages at his ideal temperature. Low-tech fathers can use the mug straight out of the box, as it self-heats to 135 degrees Fahrenheit, which it can retain for up to 80 minutes on its own or all day via the brand’s warming coaster. For a more personalized experience, they can use the Ember app to adjust the temperature to their liking. The scratch-resistant mug also has an “auto-sleep” feature, enabling it to turn off after two hours of inactivity, or when it senses an empty cup. It’s also hand-wash only, so remind Dad not to throw it in the dishwasher at the end of the day.
If your dad is an avid reader and has a house filled with books to show for it, help him save space and money with the Kindle Paperwhite. Simple enough for someone new to e-readers, the glare-free device can keep hundreds of books in a portable, 4-ounce tablet. This latest version offers a 10-week battery life and auto-adjusting screen brightness that reflects your reading environment.
Smoothies, juices, soups, sauces — the Beast Blender can handle it all. Its minimalistic design will add some style to your father’s cooking gear, while its 1,000-watt motor and minute-long blending cycle constantly adjusts to the texture of your ingredients so Dad will get smooth results, according to the brand. For an added bonus, the accompanying glass water bottle features an infusion chamber for making flavored water on the go.
Bose makes some of our favorite over-ear headphones, smart speakers and more, but when it comes to products that are both great for dads and available on Amazon, this SoundLink Flex Bluetooth Speaker might be its most exciting offering yet. The SoundLink Flex has an IP67 rating, which means it’s protected against dust and water — in fact, it even floats. The speaker’s coating is also rust- and UV-resistant, so he can rest assured that it’s built to last.
Featured in our guide to the best Dutch ovens, this enamel cast iron pot from Lodge is a good option for father figures who love spending time in the kitchen. It can withstand temperatures up to 500 degrees Fahrenheit and its heavy-duty cover keeps heat and moisture locked in so your food won’t dry out, according to the brand. Plus, its loop handles help make it safe and easy to move the pot from stove to the oven.
Whether he needs them for workouts, work calls or streaming movies, any father figure in your life will appreciate a good pair of over-the-ear headphones. I’m rarely without my Apple Airpods Max, mainly due to their comfortable ear pads and crisp sound quality, but also for their sleek style. I’m particularly a fan of the active noise cancellation and transparency modes, which allow you to choose between full sound immersion and remaining aware of your surroundings.
If your dad is already equipped with the best luggage for his travels, consider upgrading his weekender bag with this option from Herschel. The bag, which comes with a removable padded shoulder strap for comfortable carrying, has an interior mesh pocket for added organization and a shoe storage compartment so the bottoms of his sneakers don't have to touch his clothes.
The Instant Pot is one of the most well-known pressure cooking brands in the world, and this model is both an electric pressure cooker and slow cooker in one that can make rice, porridge, soup, stews and yogurt. Depending on your family’s size and kitchen needs, you can choose between the three-, eight- and 10- quart capacity options. It also has a “keep warm” function for gaps between cooking and meal time, as well as a “delay start” that allows you to schedule cooking time up to 24 hours in advance.
Whether he’s already an expert behind the bar or has been wanting to upgrade his mixology skills for years, this bartending kit is the perfect way to encourage his hobby. The all-inclusive set includes a shaker, a strainer, two liquor pourers, a muddler, a jigger, a corkscrew, a spoon and ice tongs — plus a display tray to neatly store all of the accessories. Additionally, you can choose between two wood colors for the display tray and four metal finishes for the tools.
Is your dad a commuter? A frequent traveler? A mountain hiker? If you found yourself nodding along, consider adding a stainless steel Hydro Flask Mug to Dad’s kitchen. The 24-ounce travel mug features the brand’s signature insulation, which should keep beverages hot for up to six hours and cold for up to 24 hours, according to Hydro Flask. It also comes with a splash-resistant press-in lid that helps with temperature retention and spill prevention.
If your dad has expressed interest in growing his own food, but isn’t quite ready for a full garden, an indoor solution like the AeroGarden Harvest could be a nice middle ground. The tabletop garden uses 20-watt LED lights to grow herbs, veggies and flowers from the comfort of your kitchen. And if your dad doesn’t naturally have a green thumb, the AeroGarden’s touch-sensor control panel will let him know when his herbs need more food or water.
You probably don’t want to talk to dad about body hair (let alone shaving). But everyone has it, and this electric blade beard trimmer can help him achieve a comfortable, close shave. Its replaceable blade, which can last up to four months, works on stubble or beards of any length, according to Philips. If you want to give dad a pair of extra blades, you can order those from Amazon, too.
Another Select Wellness Awards winner, the Theragun Mini is a compact recovery tool for active dads. “I would use the Theragun during marathon training after long runs,” says Select editorial director Lauren Swanson. “The round massager was able to release muscle tension in my calves and IT band, which helped me get back to running quicker.” The tool has three massaging speeds to help soothe soreness and muscle fatigue, and comes with three head attachments, a soft case and a charging cable.
For dads who are always on the go, this portable charger from Anker features twin USB ports that let you charge two devices at the same time with 15W of total power, according to the brand. Uyehara says this power bank charges her phone to 100% about three full times before she has to recharge it. It’s great for long travel days, concerts and beach trips where Dad might not have access to an outlet.
My dad loves experimenting with spicy food and, to his delight, this Hot Ones Trio made him break a sweat. If your father figure is still warming up to spice, start off with the Classic Chili Maple flavor for a sweet touch. Then, move onto the Los Calientes Barbacoa, which ups the ante with red jalapenos and habanero chilis. Finally, for the ultimate challenge, there’s The Last Dab which stars the Apollo Pepper — a hybrid of the Carolina Reaper and Pepper X.
If your dad enjoys camping, fishing or just lounging outdoors, a cooler is a great option for all of his food and drink needs. Featured in our roundup of the best coolers, this 20-quart option can hold 24 cans and keep ice frozen for up to 10 days. Its stainless steel handle has textured grips for easy carrying and, after use, its rapid drain system allows for easy cleanup, according to the brand.
