If we had to pick the hardest person to buy a gift for, it would have to be the guy who gets his own holiday… every year. We’re talking about dads and father figures. We know it’s hard to buy him something other than all those fallbacks like a new tie, shoes, hats, and his team’s merch — especially when you are already a big enough gift!
But with Father’s Day right around the corner, we think it’s time to change it up. We’ve rounded up some new and exciting options that will make you his favorite child. Especially if your dad loves to cook, bake, eat, or drink. (And let’s face it — who doesn’t love at least one of those things?)
Check out this list for the man who will have everything once you finish shopping for him.
For the Dad Who Loves to Cook:
If you’re searching for the perfect gift for your dad who loves to cook, look no further. The FINEX cast iron grill pans allow dad to grill inside or outside on any heat source. Whether he is cooking or just eating, let dad enjoy those perfect grill marks on only a FINEX cast iron pan can make.
For The Dad Who Is All About Convenience
A Butcher Box Subscription will bring the best, high quality meats right to his door. Whatever your dad prefers — steaks, seafood, wings, or pork with any level of cooking experience. You can set him up for monthly boxes with a custom selection of meat or speciality boxes for a special holiday. Help make his life easier by sending the main attraction right to him.
The Dad Who Likes to Try New Things
Twisted Tea partnered with the iconic BBQ team from Mighty Quinn’s in New York City to help dads up their grilling game. If the father figure in your life is looking to change up his BBQ sauce game, he can try this robust, savory and sweet sauce with a slight tang that will leave him wanting more.
For The Perfectionist Dad
An essential tool in any chef’s arsenal — a meat thermometer. A thermometer allows the chef to know exactly when the creation is completed to perfection. And something your father who loves to cook needs. The Meater+ thermometer connects via bluetooth to your phone to let you know how long to cook your specific meat and at what temperature. Bonus: The app also factors in rest time so you can serve the most delectable meal.
For The Mixologist Dads
If your dad is looking to grow his mixology skills and expand his palate, look no further than the Shaker and Spoon subscription box. A subscription for 3, 6, or 12 months of unique drinks includes syrups, garnishes, fresh fruit, and step-by-step instructions with video tutorials to make learning new drinks easier. And, one box contains enough supplies to make three different cocktails, four times. You’re welcome.
For The Dad Who Craves Adventure
After being stuck at home more than a year, you can give your dad or father figure the chance to embark on a journey through Scotland via The Single Malts Tasting Experience. The tasting includes Oban, Talisker, The Singleton, Lagavulin and Mortlach — all smoky, smooth Single Malts. The pack also has two tasting glasses, perfect for celebrating dad.
For The Craft Beer Loving Dad
People love craft beers. The different flavors, unique aromas, and the hard work put into creating them. If your dad is one of these individuals, then we have the perfect idea for you — Tavour’s Gift Boxes. Whether he is a fan of IPA’s, sour beers, stout beers, or loves them all — this site has delicious options for your favorite beer lover.
