Of course, if you’re like us, you find it incredibly tricky to shop for your father and often leave shopping until the last minute (shh). Lucky for you, we’ve kept our eyes peeled for goodies for all types of dads—available on Amazon. Maybe your dad’s a sports fan, word nerd, or fitness freak. Or maybe the man’s got needs: sore joints, a forgetful mind, trouble sleeping. Never fear!
You can customize this Allform Arm Chair to suit their room perfectly, making it not only a truly unique gift but also a truly unique decor piece.

In a world of similar rooms, this is one very cool way to make a unique design statement.
This soft-sided lunch box from Carhartt is the perfect size lunch box to bring to work or the job site.

A perfect front zippered compartment is provided for storing utensils and condiments. Carry your lunch bag with ease using its top handle and shoulder strap.

The grill master on your list will be awestruck when they open this memorable Solo Stove bundle, perfect for everything from the grilled steak to fish to veggies. It brings a no-hassle approach to charcoal grilling that gives even novices the ability to grill a master chef–level meal. Aside from the grill itself, the bundle includes both a short and tall stand, so it’s easy to transport or set up more permanently in the backyard, as well as a grill pack with four pounds of charcoal briquettes, a set of grill tools, a grill shelter, carry case, and more. If you’re on a budget, you can still find plenty of unique gifts for the BBQ aficionado in your life: Try these 17 must-haves for any grilling station.
The iRobot Roomba 675 is the only vacuum anyone actually wants as a gift. It’s Wi-Fi-enabled, cleans on demand, and doesn’t require anyone getting off the sofa. In other words, even the laziest soul can get the house looking tidy with the help of this nifty little robot, and that’s a life we want to be a part of. Make sure the lucky recipient knows these tips about where you should (and shouldn’t) store a Roomba.

SpaceTimeCoordinates will create a personalized art print that shows—when you include a date and time—how the solar system looked at a specific moment. We think this makes a special gift for your dad, whether you decide to use the date and time of his birth or another pivotal moment in his life. You can choose to include the date and event name on the print for a more symbolic present, or just show the solar system. It’s sweet and simple, and it’ll look great hanging on his wall.
Among the drippers we tested for making great pour-over coffee, the Kalita Wave 185 Dripper produced the most consistent, flavorful, and balanced coffee, perfectly suited to your dad’s sophisticated taste buds. After brewing 150 cups, we found the Kalita Dripper’s flat-bottomed design promoted more-even water drainage and made it easy for beginners to get consistent results (for example, it made great coffee even when we just eyeballed the amount of water per pour, or when our aim and timing were off).
Take, for example, the D.I.Y. Laguiole Toothpick Knife Kit: Like a pocket knife, a traditional toothpick knife can be used for a wide variety of everyday tasks, from opening a package (video) to chopping fruits and veggies. (If your dad is so daring, he can even take its name literally and use it to floss.) With this knife kit, your dad will have all the parts necessary to make his own Occitan-style pocket knife (so it’s a mini assembly project, where building it is half the fun). This gift is craftier and requires a bigger time commitment than if you simply got your dad Wirecutter’s favorite budget pocket knife, the Sanrenmu 710 (aka 7010). But the 710 is a great choice, too, if your dad doesn’t have time for crafts.
The Nightflight from MONTBLANC is a great option when searching for a wallet that is both classic and functional.

This aptly named Seize the Season holiday gift box that includes three pairs of Gaten Matarazzo x Happy Socks will make the Stranger Things fan in your life quiver with joy. They’ll celebrate the moment they’re in with Gaten (aka Dustin), his holiday spirit animals, and the stocking stuffers of everyone’s happiest sock-related dreams. Any true Netflix fan will approve of this awesome gift for boys.

If you’re going to buy the little girl in your life some new clothes, let them be Piccolina Trailblazer tees. They’re each made of 100 percent cotton and feature illustrated portraits of iconic female superheroes from real life, like Amelia Earhart, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, and Mae Jemison. These little bits of inspiring fashion art send a powerful “you can do anything” message to growing gals. For superheroes of the fictional variety, check out these out-of-this-world Star Wars gifts for every Jedi fan.


We like that it also comes in ceramic and stainless steel versions. Picking one material over another is ultimately a matter of your dad’s preference: Sneak a couple of suggestive questions into casual conversation to decide which might be the best surprise for him. Keep in mind that a full pour-over setup includes a lot more than just the dripper, such as a gooseneck kettle, a good burr grinder, a scale, and a timer.
Many dads may already have a Kindle e-reader by now. For those who don't, it's an excellent gift that lasts for years (and stays alive up to a month on a single battery charge). Books are cheap—many are free with Amazon Prime—and the new standard Kindle comes with a light-up screen for under $100. There are other Kindles with extra features like waterproofing, but we think this is the one to buy.

At Reviewed, we love voice-controlled smart speakers like the Amazon Echo, but the diminutive (and affordable) Echo Dot is a perfect way to bring that functionality to other rooms in your house. It's our top pick if you're a beginner looking for an entry-level Echo. I use mine in the kitchen, where it’s perfect for streaming music while I cook, setting timers, or entertaining my kids.
With battery life that can last about a week, the Garmin Fenix 5S is an outdoorsy fitness watch made for a dad. It has an accurate heart rate monitor, GPS and GLONASS satellite positioning, workout tracking, and step counting. The 5S is particularly nice, because it fits a wider variety of wrists, both large and small, but there are plenty of other awesome fitness trackers if you're shopping for someone with particular needs.
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.
