The 18 BEST Father's Day Gifts For Dad

Searching for the perfect gift for dad can be, oh what's the right word...IMPOSSIBLE? Yea, we get it. If your dad is anything like ours, he has very specific taste (i.e. he's picky) and you will probably end up giving him a lame tie or something else he wont appreciate and has way too much of. It doesn't help that each year dad likes to remind you he "has everything he already wants and needs."

But come on, you're better than that! Plus, doesn't the man who faithfully supported you through everything in your life deserve something more, well, deserving? We think so. Whether he's a new dad, an empty-nester or somewhere in the middle, we've curated a list of our 18 favorite gift ideas that dad is sure to love.

Fire Extinguisher Cocktail Shaker

We're not sure this gift even warrants an explanation, but just in case you need a little convincing, it's a cocktail shaker that is designed to look like a fire extinguisher. [Insert gasp heard around the world right here]. Great for the host in your life, the cocktail shaker is handmade in brass with a nickel-plated exterior and a silver-plated interior. The coolest part was that it was designed to mimic cocktail related tools & accessories created in 1920's Prohibition, which were intended to disguise their true purpose.

Before we go into why this is a great gift for dad, can we stop and take a minute to appreciate the sleek design of this coffee grinder that is, by the way, actually functional too? Don't believe us? Well it was designed by ROK Kitchen Tools and financed by a passionate community of crowd funders from Indiegogo.  The non-slip base and vertical orientation will give dad all the leverage he need to grind with minimum effort. He can finally have the perfect cup of coffee with his favorite coffee beans, in the comfort of his own home.


For When Dad Is Getting In Shape

WHY DAD WILL LOVE IT

S'well Water Bottle

S'well bottles are nothing new, but if your dad doesn't have one, well then he's missing out. The triple wall insulation means he can keep hot liquids hot for 12 hours (morning coffee, anyone?) and cold water cold for 24 hours. We predict he won't want to use any other vessel to transport his beverages once he starts using it.

Crossrope Complete Elite Set

The ultimate fitness gift for your dad, the Crossrope Complete Elite Set is an interchangeable jump rope system, which offers high performance training tools. You can easily clip in 7 different cable weights, from just under 2 ounces to 3 pounds and it lets you decide whether you'll jump rope for weight loss or if you want to focus on improving your conditioning.
