If you're not quite sure what kind of hot sauce your dad likes, or if he isn't committed to this or that variety of the spicy stuff, then The Good Hurt Fuego Hot Sauces Sampler is a great gift idea. It features sauces made with peppers that come from India, Mexico, and beyond, and it has flavors ranging from Chipotle Pepper to Garlic Herb to Whiskey Habanero.
Whether your dad is a hunter, a hobbyist nature observer, or someone who just wants to know what goes bump in the night outside his rural home, an inexpensive trail camera is a surprisingly effective tool for capturing clear images and videos of wildlife. Our testing showed that the Wildgame Innovations Mirage 18 is the best trail camera under $100 because of its 720p resolution and ability to detect movement from up to 40 feet away. Just be sure to avoid its watchful eye when you’re sneaking out at night.

Smart watches are fun and all, but a traditional wristwatch is still a timeless way to complete an outfit. This Skagen Signatur watch is simple, but pairs perfectly with casual and formal outfits. I own two Skagen watches myself and I wear them all the time. If you’re buying for someone who likes a little more pizazz in their wardrobe, MVMT Watches also makes a huge array of stylish, affordable timepieces with great reviews.
Keep your social distance from big gatherings and holiday parties this year and give the impossible-to-shop-for adult on your list this ultra-cool Bartesian Premium Cocktail and Margarita Machine. Think of it like an at-home bartender, with push-button simplicity and almost shocking ease of use to make pro-level cocktails with minimal effort. They’ll pop a capsule in, select the preferred strength, and press “mix.” The system draws the appropriate spirit from its reservoir and mixes a cocktail that will instantly make them feel like they’re at a famous hotel bar or resort (or simply out of the house). It’s fully equipped, meaning the capsules ensure that no additional real juice, bitters, or extracts are necessary, but keep in mind that the alcohol itself is sold separately. This handy appliance also happens to be one of Amazon’s top sellers this year.
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.
Please note that while many of these gifts will still ship before Christmas with free shipping (we even updated links for select gifts that sold out on Amazon that are still available from other retailers!), you may have to pay for expedited shipping for certain gifts. Be sure to read the fine print before purchasing as shipping times are changing each day.
