Maybe he’s a fitness junkie, an avid outdoorsman or a clotheshorse. Maybe he’s a connoisseur of fine spirits or an audio-obsessed record collector. Maybe, probably, he is you and you are him. And you deserve some Father’s Day gifts that are actually good this year. They don’t have to be luxurious or expensive (though they certainly can be), just something that improves your life in some small, meaningful way.
Feel free to casually share this link with your kids, your spouse or anyone else who might be inclined to buy you a father’s day gift.
Our Top Father’s Day Gifts
Nike Sportwear Sports Essentials Shorts
Begone, busted baggies. He deserves a new pair of go-to shorts, and few are going to beat Nike’s lined Sports Essentials. They’re sleek, comfortable and guaranteed to drop your strokes.
Ray-Ban 0RB3025 Aviator Large Metal Sunglasses
Every father should own a respectable pair of shades, and it doesn’t get more legit than Ray-Ban’s Maverick-approved Aviators.
Bombas Men’s Calf Sock Starter 4-Pack
Bombas packs in way more features than the rest of the mundane socks in your drawer, a fact dad will surely appreciate.
Yeti Rambler Beverage Bucket
A hardwearing centerpiece for his backyard barbecues and other outdoor festivities, the new Yeti Rambler Beverage Bucket holds a 6-pack of beer or three bottles of wine — and like all of the brand’s gear — is engineered to keep drinks refreshingly cool all day long.
Courage & Conviction
In partnership with Virginia Distillery Co.
Proud, passionate and aged to perfection. Sound like Dad? Then let him sip a whisky that’s his equal (and another father’s lifelong dream). Family-owned Virginia Distillery Co.’s award-winning American Single Malt whisky line, Courage & Conviction, harnesses Virginia’s dynamic climate to add depth and intensity to expressions aged in first-fill bourbon, sherry and rare cuveé casks. Not sure where to start? The flagship Signature Malt just won Whisky Of The Year at the 2023 London Spirits Competition. The 4-pack of 50mL mini bottles features all of the above expressions, including the Signature Malt. Or you could simply focus on outdoing your siblings and go with one of the limited Single Cask offerings — watch for their Double Cask Reserve, coming later this year.
High Camp Torch Flask
If you really think about it, flasks are sort of impractical. A pain to fill, a pain to clean and, sometimes, even
a pain to drink from. High Camp Flasks have changed the discreet, on-the-go drinking game with the Torch Flask — a double-walled insulated, pocket-sized 6oz drinking receptacle with a screw-on cap that doubles as a shooter-style glass. Because let’s be honest: those endless children’s sporting events would be a lot more enjoyable with a few sneaky sips here and there. And in a vessel this handsome, no one would even judge. (Kidding, everyone will still judge, always, but fuck ’em.)
Cincoro Anejo Tequila
Usually, we’d shy away from recommending a “celebrity” tequila. But Cincoro, a project from five NBA owners (including Michael Jordan), is both an outstanding agave spirit and a uniquely packaged one as well. The añejo, barrel aged for over two years, is a copper-colored standout, with hints of dried fruit, cinnamon and dark chocolate. It’s perfect for a tequila Old Fashioned or as a sipper. BTW, if you really love dad, get him the 1.75L edition, which features the unique five-sided bottle presented in a tailor-made gold box.
Russell’s Reserve 13-Year-Old Bourbon
In partnership with Russell’s Reserve
According to Master Distiller Eddie Russell, “Releasing Russell’s Reserve 13-Year-Old Bourbon is a moment I’ve come to look forward to each year.” Much like the moment on Father’s Day when dads everywhere get to raise a dram of the good stuff. Russell created his bourbon brand in homage to his father, so there’s really no better choice of bourbon to pay respects to your old man than the oldest expression in Russell’s Reserve’s portfolio, which is also a recent winner of the coveted Double Gold medal from the 2023 San Francisco World Spirits Competition.
Legacy 10-Piece Roll Up Bar Tool Set
This ten-piece bar tool set features all the essentials dad needs to whip up cocktails on-the-go (well, besides the liquor, of course.)
Cuisinart Private Reserve Wine Cellar
For the dad who wishes he had space for a wine cellar, Cuisinart’s minimalist, 8-bottle refrigerator is a more practical alternative.
Whiskey Peaks Pacific Northwest Set of 4 Whiskey Glasses
You know we love our Whiskey Peaks. This particular set of handblown glasses features raised topographic impressions of notable mountain ranges in the Pacific Northwest.
Monte Rio Skull Red Wine 2021
For the dad who’s a little punk rock, this red blend looks good on the table and in the glass. The organic grapes are sourced from Lodi, one of our favorite California wine regions, and the juice was fermented in stainless and concrete with native yeasts. Put a little chill on it and serve with a grilled dinner — maybe he’ll even let you hold the tongs this time.
Father’s Day Style Gifts
Tod’s Gommino Nubuck Driving Shoes
A pair of loafers that he’ll actually wear, draped in an Italian-crafted Nubuck? No that’s a priceless gift.
OAS Dune Short Sleeve Terry Shirt
Every dad should have a party shirt, and we have just the one. OAS’ wavey terry top is pop-approved and summer appropriate — how’s that for a Father’s Day gift?

Quaker Marine’s Martinique gives “dad hat” a whole new meaning.

Bugatchi Crew New Merino Sweater
A sleek Merino wool sweater, now machine washable. (Aka, perfect for the less-that-laundry master man.)
Todd Snyder Riviera Swim Short
Those 11″ inseam board shorts are just not gonna cut it anymore. Instead, consider these super-luxe Rivieran trunks from Todd Synder, in all their side-belted, 5″ inseam glory. A pair of swim shorts fit for a king…or a pretty baller dad.
Shinola Bifold Wallet
We’re generally not big on flashy logos around here, but the subtle flex that is the embossed logo in the corner of this luxurious wallet from Shinola is pretty much perfect.
Faherty Sun & Wave Dad Cap
You don’t have to remember if he’s a Yankees or a Mets fan with Faherty’s agnostic (if not super stylish) Dad Cap. Made from 100% cotton, it delivers a perfectly lived-in look and feel that just screams grillmaster.
Zodiac Super Sea Wolf GMT Pro Diver Watch
There are many iterations of Zodiac’s Super Sea Wolf design that we’ve championed here on this site and personally coveted for our own collections, but for a serious gift, few beat the GMT Pro. A modern nod the original 1966 Zodiac Aerospace GMT, this a timepiece that watch fanatics and deserving partners alike should be able to get behind.
Scentbird Subscription (3-Month)
Skip the pharmacy cologne and let pop pick his own fragrance with Scentbird, a DTC aroma purveyor with hundreds of designer and bespoke colognes, all in convenient sample-sized bottles. It’s simple: just gift dad a subscription, walk him through his profile setup, and let the variety of colognes roll in.

The menswear moguls down yonder Southern Gents have blessed us with this relatively inexpensive, incredibly luxe suede trucker jacket. Shouldn’t you bless the pop in your life with the same?
Birkenstock Boston Vegan Clog
Trash his 20-year-old Arizona and bestow him with the chic Birkenstock Boston Clogs, instead. Pro-tip — the vegan versions are just as good, $30 less and circumvent any ethical issues he might have.
Father’s Day Fitness & Outdoors Gifts
Biolite’s FirePit features air jets that inject the fire with oxygen creating a more consistent temperature that also reduces smoke. The size of the flames can be controlled manually or wirelessly from your smartphone, which you can charge via USB from the integrated battery pack.
Klymit Traverse Double Hammock
The Traverse Hammock uses one panel of fabric, unlike most hammocks which use three panels. That seemingly small detail means that the Klymit doesn’t have any seams or stitching and is more comfortable to lay in.
Danner Trail 2650 Mid GTX Hiking Boots
The Danner 2650 is a great comfortable hiking boot thanks in part to the EVA midsole, which contributes to its lightweight 28 ounces. The suede and textile uppers with Gore-Tex liners keep water out while allowing sweat and moisture to escape.
Salomon Speedcross 6 Trail-Running Shoes
Salomon makes rugged, durable shoes that can handle ultramarathons or a challenging trail. It also has widely spaced outsole lugs and a tough Gore-Tex upper, which means the Speedcross is built for powering through mucky terrain.

The Voyager, unlike your regular outdoor seat, has a cooler that is welded under the chair. It has a 350lb weight capacity and the cooler can hold ice for up to eight hours before melting.

Six brightness settings, a white LED and red light color option as well as an IPX6 waterproofing with a rubber o-ring closure make the Third Eye headlamp an easy choice for any serious outdoors enthusiast.

A dermatologist-approved skincare item, this daily moisturizing sunscreen is a twofer, offering both hydrating moisture and SPF 50 protection, without the greasy white cast.
