You guessed it, another best–Father’s Day–gift-ideas article. If you’re here though, it’s because you also know that shopping for the fatherly figure in your life can be a challenge. For the pickiest dads, or should we say the dads with refined taste, this can seem like an impossible task, and you don’t want to gift him just anything.

To save you some time from anxiously browsing the internet, we’ve concentrated all of our shopping expertise on Nordstrom’s selection and done all the work for you. We’ve rounded up gifts for dads who love grilling and cooking to gifts for dads who love sports and sneakers but most of all dads who love a classic gift (think slippers, caps, and grooming kits) but with an elevated twist. Not to mention that Nordstrom’s Half-Yearly Sale has just begun, so if you want to dig a little deeper when it comes to gift giving, you can save up to 60 percent on select items until June 5th.
