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.

We called this our best iPad for most people. It’s a small but snappy tablet, with enough power behind the screen to handle most common computing tasks. While tablets haven’t quite fulfilled their destiny of replacing laptops, they’re still plenty useful. The blend of portability and a large, 10.2-inch screen makes the iPad a joy to use, whether it’s checking emails on a plane or watching a movie while sprawled across the couch. It supports Apple's Smart Keyboard and the Apple Pencil, too, making it more versatile than any of Apple's previous basic iPads.
Wirecutter editor Tim Barribeau waxed poetic about Hasami porcelain in 2017 and again in spring 2020, and in his stead, I will do the same. My favorite mugs—like Tim’s—are from Hasami, a Japanese ceramics company. I bet one of these mugs, given the chance, will become your dad’s favorite, too. Hasami mugs are gorgeous porcelain pieces that always look like a set, no matter what size or color you end up buying. They’re easily (and pleasantly) stackable, making it a joy to view more than one on your shelves. To start, I recommend investing in the 13-ounce mug in gloss gray, which is, in my opinion, the perfect size in the most striking color available.
Whiskey just hits different when it's poured from a 1920s-style decanter instead of the bottle—and he knows that, so he'll be excited to break out this gift the next time he has his colleagues over for a glass of scotch. According to hundreds of reviewers (who give the set a 4.7-star rating), the handcrafted glass is as sturdy and durable as it is luxe and distinguished.
