Sneakers are having a major moment right now—so get him in on the trend with a sleek pair that all the influencers are wearing. Maybe that's Allbirds, washable wool sneakers that you see on every third person walking down the street (and that our editors are obsessed with!). Or maybe it's a pair of classic Adidas sneakers like the Stan Smiths which have hundreds of five-star reviews and that are giving us all the nostalgic feels.
This Braun No Touch Thermometer is quickly becoming one of this year’s most sought-after household essentials, and its popularity probably won’t be slowing anytime soon due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. It offers non-invasive comfort that’s easy to use, safe, hygienic, and ideal for contactless forehead measurements. Pair it with one of the best neck gaiters for coronavirus protection to create a whole kit to get them through the next wave.
Any dad who tinkers needs a solid tool to make precision cuts. This lightweight, stainless steel knife is sleek enough to carry around and sturdy enough to handle all of his slicing needs. The 3.5-inch blade flicks open with alarming speed and a satisfying snap. It’s great for outdoor use, say while camping or fishing. Or, if your dad is really hardcore, he can use it to open mail in record time.

A genuine fashion miracle is happening here—cashmere basics at affordable prices, like this Quince Mongolian Cashmere Tee ringing in well under $50. Before you run off thinking that it’s a blended fabric and not fully cashmere, think again. The brand uses 100 percent grade-A Mongolian cashmere at a 15.1-micron thickness sourced from Hircus goats in Inner Mongolia. It comes in a variety of colors and only requires a modest amount of extra laundry care. But don’t worry: Here’s how you can unshrink a sweater if you forget to read the label.


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.

In this strange, strange year, a 1,000-piece Lego set (1,023 pieces, to be exact) paired with a cup of coffee sounds like the perfect Saturday-morning getaway from Dad’s usual doomscrolling. We’ve been drooling over Lego’s The Mandalorian Razor Crest set since we first saw it at Toy Fair in the Before Times. (How can you resist tiny Baby Yoda?) We think dads who are Star Wars fans will get a kick out of it, too.
These newly released Made In red wine glasses are crafted by the cookware brand of choice for Michelin-star restaurants around the United States, and they feature titanium-reinforced coating that hardens the glassware itself to make it more resistant to abrasions, scratches, and breaking. Made in Italy with pure raw materials, they are light in the hand and dishwasher-safe.
Whether you’re celebrating your granddad, your dad, or your favorite “zaddy,” you may need some gifting inspiration. Dads often don’t help in this regard; the most common refrain from my own father as we approach any holiday is a gruff “I don’t want anything.” But of course he does, and even if you can’t pull it out of him, you can still get your dad something he’ll appreciate. Send him one of these great, Wirecutter-recommended gifts for dads—none of which is another boring tie.
Cozy blankets have always been a great gift but this year, it's all about the weighted blanket. They're very popular right now because they're said to be super comfortable, reduce stress, and even help you fall asleep faster. We tried some of the top-rated weighted blankets and found that the Gravity Blanket provided just the right amount of pressure and feels extremely luxurious.
