Father’s Day is soon upon us, which means it’s finally time to show the main man in your life how special he is with a special gift. All dads are different — you have your sporty dads, your gourmand dads, and your dads who take chilling to a new level — so I’m here to help! I’ve rounded up the best Father’s Day gifts that are bound to paint a permanent smile on his face.
I chose the 29 best Father’s Day gifts based on things that I’ve gifted in the past and that Josh loves, as well as some trendy products I’ve been seeing all over the internet. Because after all, your father or father figure deserves the very best this year!
The Best Father’s Day Gifts
1. For The Cast Iron King: Lodge Pre-Seasoned Skillet
I use my Lodge cast iron skillet to make everything from Easy Skillet Chicken Thighs to my Skillet Chocolate Chip Cookie. I find that it has incredible heat retention and gets foods super charged and crispy. Dad will love that it comes pre-seasoned and that he can use it on both the stovetop and oven to create simultaneously juicy and crispy meals. It’s also an good inexpensive Father’s Day gift.
2. For The Gourmet Griller: Cuisinart Deluxe Grill Set
A grill master needs the best grill set to perfect his char! This 14-piece stainless steel set comes in a convenient storage case and has all the tools he needs needs to master the BBQ this summer: a chef’s spatula with a built-in can opener, grill tongs, a silicone basting brush, four pairs of corn holders, a cleaning brush, and an extra brush head.
3. For the Active Dad: Vuori Banks Hybrid Shorts
Josh and I love the look of these sustainably made Vuori shorts. They also work as bathing suit bottoms and look just as good by the pool as they do by the grill.Their stretchy quick-drying fabric and secure pockets will make them his new go-tos this summer!
4. For The Dad Who’s Not A Jerk: Bunny Beef Jerky Gift Baskets
This jerky box is equivalent to getting a bouquet of flowers. I love the variety of this box that includes fan-favorite jerky brands like Chomps, Think, and Country Archer. Because they’re shelf-stable, he’ll can keep them on hand at his desk or in the car for an instant boost of energy.
5. For The Takeout Fanatic: Breville Smart Oven Pizzaiolo Pizza Oven
For dads who take their pizza seriously, getting their own pizza oven is bound to feel like owning a new Porsche. I love this Breville pizza oven, which can reach 750 degrees F, allowing you to whip up your very own wood-fired pizza in just two minutes. It also features several customizable features that allow you to personalize your pie from desired char to crispiness level. Try using it with my Spinach Artichoke Pesto Pizza or Easy Taco Pizza.
6. For The Home Chef: All-Clad Nonstick Fry Pan Cookware Set
If Dad is one to take family dinner night into his own hands, he deserves a good set of cookware to do so. I love the cookware from All-Clad, and these 8- and 10-inch pans will be a great upgrade for him. They feature elevated sides and are non-stick and oven-safe, which I find makes them easy to clean. Plus, they’re compatible with gas, electric, ceramic, and induction cooktops, so they can work in any kitchen.
7. For The Sharpest Tool In The Shed: Zwilling J.A. Henckels Twin Signature 8-Inch Chef Knife
Not only does a proper knife make chopping vegetables and meats far more efficient, but it’s also safer to use. Gift him this ultra-sharp eight-inch chef knife that’ll last him decades. It’s the one that I use in my own kitchen and it has a sharp 15-degree edge for precise cuts and has a comfortable handle, which is essential when you have a ton of chopping to do!
8. For the Sipper: Insulated Tumblers
People (including us!) love the Yeti Rambler Tumbler! It has a nice, rugged look to it and keeps drinks both hot and cold thanks to the double-walled stainless-steel material. It’s really a great gift for any dad! Plus, the magnetic lid makes it spill-free and it can be washed in the dishwasher.
But if the man in your life is active and needs to be reminded to drink water, the massive Stanley IceFlow Stainless Steel Tumbler is another great choice. He can sip it using the included straw and easily carry the 30-ounce jug with the convenient handle. It also keeps drinks cold for up to 14 hours, which is a major win!

It also performs six cooking functions, including grilling, roasting, and baking, and it features dual meat probes to get the perfect temp.
