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.

If you’re absolutely stumped about what to get the human on your list, Humans is undoubtedly a good choice. It’s a mostly inspiring, although sometimes uncomfortable, walk through the human experience on every corner of the globe, weaving readers through the existences of normal folks across a medley of cultures and continents. It’s an important read for those less prone to traveling, as well as an exciting addition to the literary collections of those often on the go. For friends and family who love the darker side of life, check out these 20 true crime books they won’t be able to put down.

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.

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.


If they’re prone to loving everything pink—from pink clothes to pink lakes—this bag of SaltWorks Ancient Ocean Himalayan Pink Salt is the ideal gift under $10. It’s comparable to regular table salt in use and size but a million times more beautiful, thanks to the natural mineral deposits that give it a soft, rosy glow. It’s also ethically sourced and devoid of GMOs.
If you’re looking to splurge on a special woman in your life, this Dyson hair dryer, engineered for all different hair types, is a worthy investment.

We tested it ourselves, and were truly blown away by how easily we were able to get a salon-quality blowout right at home.

Give Dad the gift of sleep. Google's Nest Mini has a lot of uses, but it's also one of our favorite white noise machines. Just have him say "Hey Google, play rain sounds" or "white noise" or "fan sounds." There's a whole list of relaxing sounds any Google Assistant speaker can make. But ambient sounds are just a sliver of what Google Assistant can do: It can play the news, blast music, answer your Google queries, even control other smart home equipment he might have installed around the house.
If Dad needs a serious wallet makeover, the Ridge Wallet is a great choice. It clamps together with a unique elastic design to hold anywhere from one to 12 cards, plus some cash in a money clip on one side. A groove on one edge lets you press out the card or cards you want, and the frame is made of metal with a lifetime guarantee. If rigidness isn't of interest, try the Big Skinny Wallet. It's what I've used for years.

For as low as $79, the glasses-wearing person on your list can pick out a new pair of frames they absolutely love—stress-free. They’ll pick five frames they really like from Liingo’s wide selection or text one of the brand’s stylists for suggestions based on face shape, style preferences, and trends. Then the brand will ship them free of charge (both ways), the recipient will give them a whirl, and they’ll pick the ones they like best. They can keep one, all, or even none—there’s no commitment, but we’re pretty sure they’ll find at least one perfect pair.
