Here is our gift guide to the best father’s day gift ideas that are ideal for your dad, father-in-law, husband, brother, and all the men you love. Prices range from under $15 to $300+. Let’s get shopping!

A Gift for Dads Who Love a Good Burger
Complete Shake Shack Burger Grilling Kit for 8 (you supply the tomato and lettuce)
Do you remember being a kid, and spending a whole summer day swimming at the community pool. At about 5 o’clock, your eyes red with chlorine, you nearly scalded your feet as you ran across a hot parking lot to tumble into the backseat of the family car. If you were really lucky, on the ride home you stopped for drive-through burgers. As the smell of your bag of warm burgers and tangy ketchup filled the car, you knew then life could not get better than a day like this.
Shake Shake knows the joy of those summer afternoons. Even their name harkens back to a simpler time. They have distinguished themselves with a signature burger blend of 100% Angus beef, hormone and antibiotic-free devised by Pat LaFrieda. And since Father’s Day falls in the early days of summer, maybe a burger kit for 8 from Shake Shack is the perfect gift. The kit supplies everything but the lettuce and tomato.

A Gift for Dads Who Love Bacon
A Gift for Dads Who Love Pizza
By my estimation, a dedicated pizza oven would cost about 5000 pizza deliveries. But here’s an affordable solution. It turns out you can make a proper Wood-Fired pizza right on your backyard grill.
Enter the Kettle Pizza stainless steel inserts, which are beautifully designed, simple to use, and so brilliant. They will turn your outdoor charcoal or gas grill into a pizza oven capable of reaching 750 degrees. Magnifico! As seen on America’s Test Kitchen, The Today Show, and the Steve Harvey Show, this is the gift that will transform your grill into a pizza oven with results worth bragging about.

A Gift for Dads Who Love Quality Tools
An Award-Winning 8-inch Chef’s Knife for Under $40
If, like everyone else, your dad is spending more time in the kitchen, he has grown to appreciate the utility of a well-made, sharp knife. If he wonders what the pros are using, we found it.
For more than a decade the Victorinox Swiss Army Fibrox Pro 8” Chef’s Knife has been America’s Text Kitchen’s chef’s top choice for all the slicing, dicing, mincing, and carving their professional work demands. Not only has this knife withstood the test of demanding chefs, it’s the #1 best-selling Chef’s Knife on Amazon with more than 12,000 5-star ratings, and it’s truly affordable.
A Gift for Dads Who Love Deli-Style Meats
A Gift for Dads Who Are Always Prepared
Why are they so popular? Beyond the high quality construction, and food-safe interiors, we think it’s the modern, streamlined design, and the promise of super durability. The Yeti line includes hard coolers, soft coolers, and drinkware that will keep your drinks as cold (or hot) as science allows. With 18/8 stainless steel construction, double-wall vacuum insulation, No Sweat™ Design and dishwasher safe (which is really important). If you’re looking for a gift that will still be used and appreciated years from now, a Yeti product may be the way to go. The stainless steel vaccuum insulated Drinkware starts at $24. Hard and soft-sided coolers come in some really nice colors but are a bit of an investment.
Chocolate Gifts for Dad’s with a Serious Sweet Tooth
Fran’s Chocolates, Seattle
Recchiuti Chocolates, San Francisco
Red Truck Bakery, Virginia
We’re not even going to pretend to be objective here. We’ve enjoyed and sent nearly every one of Red Truck Bakery’s cakes: Alma Hackney’s Rum Cake, The Almond Cake with Amaretto (so moist, so good), the Triple Chocolate Cake (still getting compliments), The Shenandoah Apple Cake (deep sigh of joy), and every one was better than what we could ever hope to produce in our own kitchens (and we are accomplished bakers, FYI). Just order from Red Truck Bakery ($30 and up) and your gift-giving is expertly done!
Gifts for Dads Who Love Coffee
Classic 1940’s Chemex Pour-Over Coffee Maker
But remember you need to use Chemex filters, either paper or you can buy a stainless steel reusable one, whereas in the French Press above, you don’t. However, have you every gotten the grounds out of a French Press without making a mess?
More than 2500 top reviews on Amazon.
OXO Burr Coffee Grinder
The OXO Burr Grinder is beautifully and intuitively designed of course, and it creates uniform grounds for optimal flavor extraction. Choose from 15 settings (plus micro settings) which adjusts the grind to suit any taste. The hopper holds up to 0.75 lbs of coffee beans, enough for 12 cups of lovingly brewed coffee.
Death Wish Whole Bean Coffee Beans
The premium beans are expertly roasted to ensure a bold, smooth brew. Bonus: If your man isn’t completely satisfied they’ll refund your order. No questions asked.

Gifts For Dads Who Like Gadgets
Apple Series 7 Watch
“I don’t need any gadgets!” my husband told our son as he was fishing around for Father’s Day gift-giving ideas. But when my obstinate husband was told by his doctor to watch his blood pressure, he realized our son was right. Maybe a watch that did practically everything he needed to stay connected with work, and GPS, and served as a fitness tracker in and out of the water could be a good idea. The Apple Series 7 watch is the ticket.
Gifts for Dads Who Prefer the Quiet
Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones
You will be amazed what tension can be defused when you can retreat into a cocoon of quiet by clapping on a pair of these sleek, wireless, Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones. Of course you have the option to pipe in favorite tunes and shows and podcasts as well. When the house is crowded with family, or you are in a family known for blasting dueling television shows, this will help your favorite guy quietly rise above it all.
