Whether you’re shopping for the one who raised you or the one currently co-raising your kids, finding a truly great Father’s Day present is more difficult than you might think. They do a lot for us, these dads, and thus deserve gifts that are as considerate and dynamic and idiosyncratic as they are. Luckily for you, we’ve gone ahead and tracked down the perfect present for just about every type of father there is: the fashion dad, the sporty dad, the terrible-joke dad; the one who’s constantly on the move and the one who almost never leaves his La-Z-Boy.

For the Caffeine-Addict Dad

Just right for those 5 a.m. drives to soccer practice, this attractively angular coffee-maker delivers six shots of espresso right on your stove top.

For the Tech-Savvy Dad

A sleek, nonslip charging pad that’ll ensure you’re no longer stuck wondering why his phone is always close to dying.

For the Dad With Classic Style

Tortoiseshell Wayfarer-style specs are always a safe bet: They go with everything and look good on absolutely everyone.

For the Active Dad

Sweat- and weather-resistant earbuds that pump out high-quality sound and will stay firmly in his ears no matter the terrain.

For the Vacation-Ready Dad

Sharper and subtler than the average floral camp shirt.

For the Dad Who Works From Home

Mid-century good looks without the antique-store price tag.

For the Dad Who Hangs Poolside

Trim, handsome trunks that’ll double as his favorite shorts all summer long.

For the Dad Who Never Replaces Anything

Crafted from natural, untanned cowhide, this conveniently slim wallet will age and deepen beautifully with years of use.

For the Minimalist Dad

For the Road-Trippin’ Dad

Everything you could want from great duffel: striking, spacious, tons of well-placed pockets.

For the Sneakerhead Dad

If you can’t afford those Jordans he’s been lusting after, this is a worthy consolation.

For the Dad Who Looks Great in a Tux

Elegant enough for a black-tie gala, functional enough to wear every day.

For the Grillmaster Dad

Help him take those backyard cookouts to another level.

For the Couch-Potato Dad

If he’s going to spend the whole weekend watching sports and Netflix anyway, the least you can do is upgrade his sweats.

For the Dad on the Go


Depending on his stage of fatherhood, this’ll either serve as a perfect-size weekend travel pack or the luxest diaper bag ever.

For the Rad Dad

A rugged denim jacket remains an absolute must-have for guys of every age.

For the Casual Dad

A minor Italian-designed upgrade on his go-to canvas Vans.

For the Dad Who Hits the Links

The same silky smooth golf shirt he watched Tiger win the Masters in.

For the Meticulous Dad

Socks might seem like one size fits all but that’s not the case. For the most precise fit, Kane 11 offers styles that run from 7-17.

For the Dressy Dad

If there are outdoor weddings in his future, this breezy double-breasted number will keep him cool and looking snappy all summer long.

For the Jet-Setting Dad

A slew of essential skin-revitalizing serums stored in a handy reusable Dopp kit.

For the Cinephile Dad

Movie buffs will go nuts for this hugely entertaining deep dive into the year that gave us The Matrix, Office Space, Being John Malkovich and way, way more.

For the Gourmet Dad


Exactly the right size for a nice cut of steak — which, come to think of it, would be a great addition to this gift.

For the Flashy Dad

A head-turning gold watch that won’t (completely) break the bank, built from hardy steel that’ll survive just about anything.

For the Outdoorsy Dad

The kind of jacket that makes you look forward to bad weather.

For the Dad Who Sails

Timeless nautical stripes from a brand that’s been outfitting French sailors for the better part of a century.

For the Photographer Dad

For all those photos of the kids he’s endlessly snapping.

For the Dad Who Loves to Nap

A kinder alternative to a box of anti-snoring nasal strips.

For the Competitive Dad

It’s fun to play, sure, but also won’t be an eyesore hanging on the wall.

For the Committed Dad

This’ll look rad engraved with the kids’ initials, or even just “DAD.”

For the Dad Who Means Business

A slick trench that’ll keep his suits crisp and dry in a downpour.

For the Hippie Dad

Tie-dye is back in the biggest possible way.

For the Chill Dad

Much more becoming than those ratty Adidas slides he’s always putting around the house in.

For the Exercise Dad

These sleek shorts are lightweight and will wick away sweat so he can enjoy his intense workouts. Added bonus: the brand donates a portion of every sale to the SEAL Legacy Foundation which provides support to wounded and fallen SEALs and their families.
