For Rad Dads: Father’s Day Gift Guide

Father’s Day is comin’ up, hot on the heels of May. Does picking the perfect present for pops have you all in a tizzy? Well, we’re here to help!

Shopping for Dad can be difficult, so we broke prezzie picks down into four fatherly categories (or ‘dad-egories’, if you will) based on interests and hobbies. Now sussing out a great gift is gonna be a snap!

The Outdoorsmen

If your fave guy is of the Ron Swanson school of thought, he probably wouldn’t mind a brand new portable charcoal grill — which he would use to cook the fish he just caught with his bare hands. Of course, he’d also never turn down a handy-dandy multi-tool (yes, one of them even has a hammer!). Other über useful accoutrements? A battery-operated LED lantern, a bicycle repair kit, a rugged, durable metal mug, and The Kaufmann Mercantile Guide, which is chockfull of helpful how-tos. Check ’em all out right here!

Cocktail Connoisseur

Can he distinguish the subtle differences between a ten year and twenty year whiskey? Name the top notes of a top shelf pinot noir with a single sip? Get him what he really wants: The Hungoevr Cookbook! No, but really — it’s got some great recipes for those morning-after moments when the sun is shining a bit too bright. And for the cocktail lover who’s always whipping up unique new concoctions, the Homemade Gin Kit is a surefire gift win, which allows one to customize their very own small batch. And, while we’re at it, why not throw in a sleek splatterware cocktail shaker in a deep blue hue, a cool copper mug, an expandable, keychain-ready shot glass (because you never know when a tasting could happen), and the ever-entertaining Tequila Mockingbird, a recipe book chockfull of enticing libations named for classic literature. (Come to think of it, we might need a few of these items ourselves…)

The Dapper Dad

Need a gift for the type of fella who appreciates the finer things in life? We have some savvy suggestions. Shall we start with a gleaming golden pineapple drink tumbler? Talk about classy. He’ll feel like a total baller carrying a cocktail around in this suave sipper. Next up: a few necessities for any true gentleman’s wardrobe! We suggest a genteel gingham plaid bow tie, perfect for upping the ante of any classic button-up shirt, a super-cool set of car-shaped cufflinks, and a dashing cognac-colored watch! For the dapper dude with a sense of humor — and taste for sushi — we have a pair of quirky-cool socks, complete with his favorite roll, edamame, and soy sauce. Last, but not least, this zebrawood-encased Bluetooth speaker makes for a great gift any stylish guy would love.

#1 Sci-Fi Fan

The gift force is strong with this one! If he’s into Star Wars, then there’s no doubt he’ll appreciate being on the receiving end of The Jedi Path, a portable C3PO battery pack, or a cool collection of coasters boasting close-ups of his fave characters. Or, perhaps you’d prefer to make a choice between two mugs — one for those who like their java on the Dark Side, and one for the type of fella who still fancies himself the next Han Solo. If he’s more of a fan of outer space in general, the a rocket ship-adorned tee will send him into orbit!
