Uncommon Goods

What's better than storing his favorite whiskey in his own personalized oak barrel? Although small, Dad will be able to accelerate the aging process due to the barrel's strategic proportions. The oak encourages three distinct flavors: lignan, lactones and tannins.


Good knives are the foundation of any kitchen and this set from Kilne delivers (it's not just good, it's fantastic). Likely the sharpest knives Dad will ever use, each piece is made of high-grade German steel and has a fully forged construction, meaning the blade is one piece all the way through the handle.

For the Dad who wants to say it loud and say it proud, this cozy hoodie is a worthy gift for Father's Day. With its casual, lived-in feel and "Dadurday" logo, it offers the best of both worlds: practicality, with a dad joke built in. "My husband regularly reaches for this sweatshirt, which is cozy with a broken-in feel," shares Karen Tietjen, our updates editor.


The self-cleaning water bottle from Larq is a groundbreaking gift for any dad on the go. Whether you’ve seen the brand on Shark Tank or it's your first time learning about it, this is one gadget that's actually useful. The UV-C LED light purifies water while the self-cleaning mode turns on every two hours ensuring your water is continuously filtered.

It's ready in just five minutes with minimal cleanup needed.

High Camp Flasks

Perfect for packing wine, whiskey or pre-made cocktails on any outdoor adventure, this sleek stainless steel set comes in three muted metallic colors and features a leak-proof cap and vacuum insulation to keep drinks chilled or warm.

For dads who love to grill, Brightland's Bestsellers Capsule is a thoughtful and practical gift.

This MagSafe charging stand is a stunning way to hold Dad's iPhone securely in place magnetically. It's made with a machined brass or steel base and sanded hardwood that looks like a piece of art. It's available in three finishes including walnut and maple and it'll be right at home on his desk. Head's up: It requires an Apple MagSafe Charger ($31), which isn't included.


Does Dad still commute to work? If so, the Nomatic Messenger Bag might be the perfect accessory for day-to-day as well as carry-on duty, transforming instantly from shoulder bag to briefcase. The magnetic shoulder strap buckles are worth the price of admission on their own, but it also has quick-access exterior pockets, a magnetic water bottle holder and a TSA-ready laptop compartment.

Harry and David

Why get him a box of chocolates when you can get him a whole tower of chocolate sweets? Harry and David's classic chocolate gift features layers of sweet treats like Moose Munch premium popcorn, chocolate covered cherries, mints, malt balls and more. Hey, maybe he’ll even share some with you.


This Yeti soft cooler will become Dad's new favorite accessory for beach days, fishing trips and tailgates. It's big enough to hold 30 cans of beer or a whole day's worth of meals, if he packs efficiently. And don't worry about it leaking—this model features a 100% leak-proof zipper that shouldn't break no matter how hard he tugs it closed.

Best Buy

It keeps hot beverages at the optimal drinking temperature for the entire cup and stays within seven degrees of the set temperature for almost 95 minutes.

Atlas Coffee Club

The perfect companion to the Ember Mug, you can also give Dad the gift of caffeine this Father's Day with an Atlas Coffee subscription, named our top pick in our best coffee subscription story. Available in three different quantities—a half bag, one full bag or two full bags—and three roast preferences, you’ll be able to customize the recurring shipment just the way Dad likes it.


Help him keep the bathroom organized with this electric razor wall mount. Made from stainless steel, it leaves more room on the bathroom counter for other essentials. Equipped with a self-adhesive, your dad can quickly and securely stick this to the wall for easy access.


Made with fluffy two-ply gauze, this Parachute Cloud Cotton Robe is ideal for lounging before bed or early in morning. With a snug waist tie and two hidden side pockets, Dad can keep his phone and other necessities (like snacks) on him at all times.


Give stressed out dads the gift of relief with a weighted blanket. Unlike most weighted blankets that are filled with beads, the Insta-famous Bearaby Napper is knit with soft, breathable and eco-friendly organic cotton. Bonus: It also looks beautiful as a throw when it's not in use.

Herschel Supply Co

For those trips to the beach or work softball games, every dad can use a high-quality cooler bag. Herschel Supply Co. has expanded its line to include coolers as part of its Insulated Program. Available in nine styles, there's a color and pattern combination for every father.


While everything seems to be digital nowadays, there are some people who still—gasp—carry cash. If Dad is one of them, step up his wallet game with Smythson's gorgeous four-card style. It has a smooth calf leather lining and also comes in four solid colors, including this dark khaki version (above). You can also get it personalized with his name or initials.


These aren't Dad's regular kitchen scissors. Made using German stainless steel, Material's Good Shears are almost indestructible, incredibly comfortable, easy to clean and surprisingly interchangeable with his sharpest knife. So whether he's snipping herbs, butterflying chicken breasts, slicing pizza or busting open Amazon packages, these shears are up for the task.


Every guy needs a good Dopp kit—a classically styled toiletry bag for all the items he takes on the road. Overland's Legacy American Bison Leather Travel Kit is made from deeply textured leather in a rich, dark walnut finish with elegant antiqued brass hardware. It looks every bit as rugged as it is, and inside, the plaid interior has ample room for whatever toiletries your favorite stylish man needs to carry with him.

Oura Ring

This Father's Day, give Dad a ring that's sleek, modern and helps improve his health. The Oura Ring is a health and sleep monitor that looks nothing like technology, but it's packed with sensors to keep him meaningfully informed about his wellness. "I really like that Oura Ring provides a broad overview and real time personal analysis," says staffer Jason Rich in his full-length review. "The most useful insight I’ve discovered so far is that maintaining a consistent bedtime and wake-up time directly impacts my daily energy and alertness level."

Rendell Co.

Crafted with 100% cotton denim that's as durable as it is stylish, this classic bib apron gives ample protection from all the inevitable splatters and messes in the kitchen or at the grill. Plus, the roomy pockets are great for holding everything from dishtowels to screenshot phone recipes.

Einova USA

These days, everyone needs a wireless charging pad for their smartphone and earbuds. Dad deserves one with a little more panache than the typical hunk of plastic, though. Wireless Charging Stones from Einova are carved from genuine marble or stone and look stunning, yet are Qi-certified for fast charging for virtually any wireless charging phone.


Whether Dad is looking to unwind post workout or simply just wants to relax, Therabody's Theragun portable massage gun will be a lifesaver. Theragun uses percussive massage therapy to help treat muscle soreness, relieve tension and reduce pain. The mini version is ideal for traveling thanks to 150 minutes of battery life and its QuietForce technology for minimal noise. The helpful tool is designed with an easy to hold grip and comes with three different speed settings.


You can't go wrong with fancy glasses and Dragon Glassware's designs are both unique and affordable. Take, for instance, this duo of diamond whiskey glasses, which Dad will love displaying on his home bar. If he's more into brews, you have to check out the brand's Upside Down Beer Glasses, too.

Dango Products

If Dad's wallet is starting to look tattered, it may be time to upgrade. Check out Dango Wallets, which are constructed to be tough, tactical and versatile—plus, they’re made in the USA. Take the D03 Dapper Bifold, for instance: Designed with a slim profile, it features an aluminum card slot with a push notch, pockets, an interior license viewing panel and an elastic strap to keep everything in place. It's also RFID secured, making it great for travel (and general everyday security).


The weather is getting warmer, so it's officially time to upgrade Dad's khaki game with Birddogs "Uncle Bucks" shorts. Made from modern, breathable fabrics with built-in briefs, once he tries these, he’ll never go back. It's the comfy, casual bottoms he never knew he needed.

Sonic Editions

One unique gift idea—especially for the guy who has everything—is a framed print. Sonic Editions features photography collections in categories that include music, sports, film, cars and travel, so you’re bound to find a photo that fits his fandom. On the site, you’ll discover unexpected artwork, like this "Beatles Taking A Dip" snapshot, which will class up his man cave (a win-win if you ask us). Says Karen Tietjen, our updates editor, "I have a Sonic Editions print and the quality is excellent. I love the brand's unique selection of photography for adding affordable art to my home (or giving as a gift for someone else's)."


Courant's wireless chargers offer a stylish way to stay charged. The Catch:3 is bound in leather and has a drop tray for stashing trinkets. That means he can juice up his tech and empty his pockets all in one place (and there's no special charging cases required). "My Catch:3 is stylish and functional—I use it to charge my phone and AirPods almost daily," says updates editor Karen Tietjen.

Ooni USA

Recommended by many Forbes Vetted editors, the Ooni oven is the ideal way to step up his pizza game while baking pies in 60 seconds. The Ooni Koda 12 fits 12-inch pizzas and runs on gas, but these outdoor pizza ovens come in a selection of sizes and fuel types to fit Dad's pie-slinging style.

Uncommon Goods

There's something about hot sauce that dads seem to love and for the father who likes everything spicy, this Make Your Own Hot Sauce kit is the ideal gift. It comes with all the fixings he needs to whip up a few fiery batches (minus some kitchen tools like a strainer and food processor), plus labels for creating punny names for each of his masterpieces.

Solo Stove

A favorite brand among Forbes Vetted staffers and readers (and featured in our best fire pits story), Solo Stove fire pits are portable so he (and his friends and family) can sit around the fire anytime, anywhere. It's also smokeless for cleaner, more comfortable breathing. Whether he takes it camping, on a beach vacation or keeps it in the backyard, it’ll be Dad's favorite gathering place. Bonus: The brand's cheeky Fire Starter Cards—yes, they’re meant to be burned—are free and qualify for free shipping with your $99 purchase.

If Pop is the type who's always up on the latest sports trend, he's undoubtedly played a pickleball match or two. Get him a cool set of his own pickleball paddles, so he can play anytime, anywhere. This 4-paddle set by Recess allows you to pick the style, making it feel that much more personal.


Most dads don't spend a lot of time and effort thinking about their skincare routine.

Williams Sonoma

There's nothing quite like a home-cooked meal, and there's really nothing quite like handmade pasta. Give dad access to the best of both worlds with Imperia's old-fashioned, Italian pasta machine. It comes with two rollers, giving him the option of a solid sheet pasta, fettuccine or linguine.

Blue Bottle

If he's more of an iced coffee guy, opt for Hario's cold brew bottle that lets him set it and forget it. All he has to do is fill the filter with ground coffee, add fresh water and refrigerate for 8 to 12 hours (overnight is often the best strategy) for a full bottle of the good stuff.


Loftie's alarm clock really does it all. To discourage Pop from using a phone in the bedroom and encourage a better night's sleep, the clock has app-free settings and sounds and a gentle, two-phase alarm for a soft wake.
