Sometimes dads can be the hardest people to buy for. They might have a completely different set of interests to you, which makes it hard to choose something they’ll like. In this list, we’ve selected 20 of the best gifts for Father’s Day, based on some classic things that dads love – whiskey, beer, BBQing, tech, and tools.
Gifts For Fathers Day
Our Best Choice gift for Father’s Day is the Zojirushi Stainless Steel Mug. The reason we’ve selected it as the best gift on our list is that we think every father should own one. Whatever hobby or career your old man has, we’re almost certain he’ll benefit from owning one of these. It’s a thermal flask but it has a few features that make it slightly different from its competition. The first thing feature that impresses us is the safety lock opening system. Instead of a screw-lid, you open it using a button on the front, and next to that is a locking slide to secure it. That means you won’t get any unnecessary spillage when you’re carrying it around. We also like the plastic mouth, which allows you to drink straight from the bottle without that metallic taste you get from some flasks. All in all, it’s one of the best flasks on the market.

Sous Vide cooking has made a huge comeback in recent years. If you’re not aware of it yet, it’s a boil-in-the-bag style of cooking that produces flawless results every time. It’s one of the most accurate ways to cook food and, because of that, professional chefs have been using it for years. And, now your dad can become a top chef with the ChefSteps Joule Sous Vide. This gift might be on the expensive side, but it’ll be money well spent when he’s treating you to gourmet meals every night. It’s simple to use as well – you just have to program it using your smartphone, place it in a pan of water with the food in the bags provided, and it does the cooking for you. The other benefit of this particular Sous Vide cooker is that it’s much smaller than other models, which means you can fit it into smaller pans.

For some reason, dads love cooking outside. Most of them opt for the BBQ as their weapon of choice, but smokers can produce some amazing results as well. Instead of turning the steaks into charcoal, you can slow cook food to perfection on the Weber Smokey Mountain Cooker. It might take a little longer, but when the delicious meat is falling off the bone, it’s going to be so worth it. This 18-inch smoker is mainly made from porcelain, which means that it can retain heat without rusting or peeling. It’s got two large cooking grates inside, so there’s plenty of space for two large pieces of meat or plenty of smaller ones. And, it has a temperature gauge and dampers so you can cook at an accurate temperature without lifting the lid.

Plus, you can save and store your measurements for future reference. Your old man might not know that he needs this product, but once he has it, he’ll never look back.

There’s nothing like a perfectly poured beer straight from the tap. Unfortunately, until now that’s not always been convenient. If you want to have a tap in your house, you have to drink the whole keg before the beer goes off, which can be a tall order. The Fizzics Waytap Beer Dispenser solves this problem. You can place a can or bottle of your favorite beer (works with all styles of beer) and the fluid and sound technology inside will turn it into tap-poured perfection. If your dad’s a beer lover, this is one of the best gifts for Father’s Day.

If you’re looking for an affordable and fun present for Father’s Day, the Corkcicle Whiskey Wedge is perfect. At less than $20, it’s one of the cheapest items on this list, but it’s unique and something you can enjoy together. If you didn’t guess from the images, it’s a mold to create large triangular ice blocks. The benefit of having one large ice block, rather than a few small ice cubes, is that it won’t melt quickly and water down the taste of the whiskey. It also comes with an old-fashioned whiskey glass that holds the ice block perfectly. It creates a unique and interesting shape to look at and will let your old man enjoy his whiskey even more.

The Garmin Speak Plus is the perfect co-driver. It has a built-in dash cam that records your drive and provides information to the driver. For example, it will tell you if you’re driving too close to the car in front, it can alert you to lane departures, and it will tell you when to move in traffic. On top of that, it detects when an incident occurs and will record and save the footage. That protects you against any legal action in a collision that wasn’t your fault. It also has Amazon Alexa built-in, so you can control your music, phone, calendar, notifications, and everything else without touching anything. It could make the perfect Father’s Day gift, especially if your dad has lost his confidence a little behind the wheel.
