If the thought of buying Father’s Day gifts is already stressing you out, I’ve got you covered. I don’t know what it is, but I feel like men are always hard to shop for! Agree?
My husband Doug is pretty easy to please—as long as his gift is accompanied by food of some sort, he’s a happy camper! But my own father on the other hand? I always struggled to find the perfect gift.
If you have trouble shopping for the man in your life too, I found some great Father’s Day gifts that will make him smile from ear to ear.
Below, you can find some of the best cooking, travel, tech, and food gifts for Dad. I even included some unique and personalized finds that are perfect for your son, grandpa and anyone in between!

Grilling and Cooking Father’s Day Gifts
If Dad is the chef of the household, he’ll love these grilling and cooking gifts. I already have my eye on the pizza set for Doug!
I love grilled shrimp and veggies, but I hate when they fall through the grates. It makes for extra clean-up that no one wants to do! But with this Just Grillin’ Grill Pan, you can still get that char-grilled taste without your food sneaking away.
I don’t know about you, but my husband has had his grilling tools for FAR too long. If that sounds familiar, you can replace Dad’s rusty gadgets with this sparkly new BBQ Tool Set.
This one is pretty neat! Not all of us have a brick pizza oven in our backyard, but with this 3-Piece Grill Pizza Set, you don’t need one! It turns your regular grill into a pizza grill—no hassle necessary.
If Dad is cooking all day, chances are he’s exhausted. Thankfully, he can treat himself to a delicious and refreshing drink with this Margaritaville Frozen Drink Maker.
Travel Gifts To Give Dad
Memorial Day Weekend is the perfect time to travel, but summer vacations don’t have to stop there! If Dad is trying to do some jet-setting in the near future, here are some good gifting options.
I can’t say this enough… Doug LOVES his YETI cooler. This one is the YETI Roadie 24 Cooler and it’s ideal for those long car rides, camping, or fall tailgating.
A Dopp kit is a must-have for any traveler, but often, they’re basic and boring. That’s why I love this Personalized Leather Dopp Kit from Etsy which features a leather exterior and an embossed monogram in the corner.
I thought this little Craft Portable Cocktail Maker Kit was just the cutest little gift! It includes ginger syrup, a 1/2-ounce jigger, a bar spoon and a linen coaster.
Help Dad with all of his packing needs by giving him these Multi-Purpose Travel Bags for Father’s Day. They compress clothing into a compact square so that he can bring back some souvenirs from his trip!
The Best Food Gifts For Father’s Day
Who doesn’t love to receive food? I found some delicious Father’s Day gifts of food for the Dad who loves trying new dishes without the extra work.
This Mike’s Hot Honey is one of my FAVORITE food products! It’s something about the heat and the sweetness that makes for an explosion of flavor. I can almost promise you that the man in your life will love it as well!
Does Dad have a taste for the finer things? If so, he won’t complain when he receives these Top Sirloin Steaks. The pack includes eight 6-ounce steaks and a Kansas City Steak seasoning packet. It also arrives within two days of shipment to ensure freshness!
But if Dad is more of a BBQ guy, these Corky’s Baby Back Ribs might be a better option. Covered in original-flavored BBQ sauce, these hickory-smoked ribs are perfect for any summer gathering.
There’s also this Pulled Pork with Honey BBQ Sauce which is another great option for the man who loves anything that reminds him of a summer barbecue!
I love gifting quirky gifts because they’re super unique! Plus, you can be pretty sure that no other dad on the block will have the same thing. These Beer Infused Rubs feature six spice blends cleverly packaged in classic beer cans.
Unique Gifts For The Man In Your Life
Speaking of unique gifts, here are a few one-of-a-kind items I found that will truly make Dad’s day.
How nifty is this JumpSmart Portable Car Jump Starter? Disguised as a flashlight, this 10-in-1 multitool includes a USB charging cable, a compass, a thermometer and more. What else does Dad need?
Help the man in your life prepare for all those baseball games with this Pistachio Pedestal. This way, he can put the shells right in the little “moat” outside the bowl! I can also see it working well with peanuts.
Sometimes, the best gifts are the simple ones. I love these Best Dad Slippers because it shows him how appreciative you really are!
Top Tech Gifts To GIve Dad
The market is filled with a bunch of gadgets—from smart home products to wearable tech. If you want some options that will “wow” Dad, you can find some of my picks here.
Here’s one for all those active fathers. It’s called the GoPro HERO7 and it’s designed to capture all of his adventures. Not only does it take vibrant photos and videos, but it’s also waterproof!
Whether he’s working from home or he’s going into the office, he likely relies on coffee to get him through the day. This Ember Mug will ensure his cup of Joe never gets cold. How? It relies on smart technology to keep the drink at the perfect temperature.
Compact and portable, the Bose SoundLink allows Dad to take his music with him wherever he wants. It comes in a few colors, but I love this striking yellow citron. One that he can’t lose!
This Personalized Charging Station is great for the Dad with multiple gadgets. Instead of dealing with a bunch of obnoxious cords, it allows him to charge his iPhone, Apple Watch, iPad and AirPods at the same time!
I can’t stand coming home to a house that’s super cold or super warm. The Google Nest Thermostat is filled with smart features that work with your schedule to efficiently regulate the temperature of your home!
Custom Gifts To Make Him Smile
Nothing says you care more than a heartwarming, custom gift. Whether that’s a homemade card or a personalized product you make online, these Father’s Day gifts are sure to be extra special.
If your little one is looking for a gift to give Dad, I recommend taking a look at this adorable Super Dad Mug. Each one is customized with your child’s name and features sayings like “master handyman” and “contagious dance moves.”
I don’t think Doug ever leaves the house without a wallet. I wish I could say the same thing about myself! Anyway, this Personalized Leather Card Holder, equipped with a couple of card slots, is a great compact option for his essentials.
If these Custom Face Socks don’t make Dad laugh, I don’t know what will! All you have to do is submit a photo and a message, and Personalization Lab will send you a pair of unique, one-of-a-kind socks for Father’s Day!
I’m thinking of getting one of these Custom Pet Portraits for myself… I’m sure Brosky and Wilbert would love it! This wonderful artist takes a photo of your pet and turns it into a digital painting. If you ask me, it’s a perfect way to surprise Dad!
So, now’s your time to make Dad feel like a king! And while your love is probably enough, I’m sure these gifts won’t hurt 🙂
From my home to yours,
