Dad has been there for you through it all: bike falls, broken hearts, you name it. The best way to show your #1 guy how much you appreciate him is with a gift that's equally thoughtful, practical, and budget-friendly (since you know that is very important to him). Steal the show on Christmas, his birthday, or any other special occasion by showing up with these unique gifts for dad, ranging in price, shipping time, and sentiment. There are picks for every kind of dad: the beer lover, home chef, the one who might as well be called "Mr. Handyman," and so forth. If he's the dad who claims he already has everything he could ever want, we made sure to find a few thoughtful options that will prove him otherwise (and steal his heart at the same time). But we all know that anything is a win in his eyes, as long as it comes from his son or daughter.

The Filson Rugged Twill Tote Bag makes a great present for Dad for the same reasons we love it as a gift for any other occasion: It’s lightweight, well constructed, and can suit any occasion, from running errands to sitting in on a business meeting. And it has a standard but elevated design that makes it appear as though the wearer has it all together, too (even if that’s not the case). The Filson tote is made from 100% cotton water-repellent twill, and the inner seams are bound to protect them from fraying. Basically, it’s safeguarded against all of the activities that dads are wont to do—but in case you’re still worried, the Filson Tote has a lifetime warranty.
Philips Hue A19 smart light bulbs make it easy for Dad to create a relaxing environment for when he’s at home, and they’re even easier to control using Bluetooth and his smartphone. If your dad is particularly tech savvy, we recommend adding a Hue hub, which will allow him to set Schedules, as well as integrate the light bulbs with motion sensors and wireless switches from the Hue family of accessories. The White and Color Ambiance A19 Starter Kit includes four bulbs (and a Hue hub) to get dad’s system off the ground and running.
What do you call this infamous Christmas tradition? Depending on where you are in the country, you might use one name or the other for the same game. There are a variety of variations on how to execute this gift exchange, but the fundamental difference between these two monikers lies in what you’re gifting. Is your gift exchange all about funny, impractical gifts? Then you’ve likely been playing White Elephant all along. If your gift exchange is more about universal, practical gift-giving- that’s a Yankee Swap. However you choose to play, coming up with the perfect gift can be tricky. Browse these gift exchange gift ideas for more inspiration.
This authentic Japanese-style barbecue sauce from Bachan’s is the exciting vegan, small-batch, non-GMO way to take their dishes on a trip around the world even when everyone is staying home. Don’t expect this one to go on like American barbecue sauce, because it simply won’t. It’s a thinner, more teriyaki-like sauce that adds just the right balance of salty, sweet, and savory notes to meat, fish, veggies, and even tofu.

For dads who love to bird-watch from their kitchen, Wirecutter’s pick for the best bird feeder is the Droll Yankees 18-Inch Onyx Mixed Seed Bird Feeder with Removable Base. It was the sturdiest and best-built bird feeder we tested, with tough metal components that secure tightly to the body of the feeder. The Onyx is versatile enough to hold several different feed types, and it’s backed by a lifetime guarantee against the damage any pesky squirrels can do. The base is easy to take off and clean, and—most importantly—there’s plenty of room for birds to perch.

One fan sums it up: “Definitely more than five stars!”
If the guy in your life has been locked up inside the house, it might be time for a weekend getaway (while being safe and socially distant, of course).

It also comes in a larger size for a more extended escape. And if he packs super light, there’s also a mini size for shorter trips.

When was the last time your dad bought himself a new pillow? Was it after you puked on his bed from eating too much Halloween candy in third grade? If so, it’s time he had a new one. It might not sound like the most glamorous gift, but we’ve found shredded-foam pillows like the Nest Bedding Easy Breather to be life changing, both in comfort and in their impact on our sleep quality. It’s the ultimate practical gift that Dad might not even know he’s missing.
A grill might not be the most original gift for dads, but our favorite pellet grill is anything but traditional. The Traeger Pro 575 maintains its set temperature to produce tender, juicier meat more consistently than the competition. It can also connect to Wi-Fi, which allows cooks to monitor it from afar—and frees up Dad to join the party instead of hovering over the food. (No judgments if he wants to throw a few burgers on the ol’ charcoal grill for fun, though.)

Bose QuietComfort 35 Series 2 are among the best you can get when it comes to canceling noise, and they sound good too. They'll help any dad relax, even if the world around him never does. For a more affordable option (that still rocks), try the Plantronics BackBeat Pro 2 or Voyager 8200.
