Find out which hot sauce is the royal family’s favorite.
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.

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.
Whether it’s game day or just a busy Wednesday, sometimes you just want something quick, easy, and delicious. Air fryers aren’t the most health-conscious products in the world, but they do a good job of providing crispy food without the mess or hassle of frying in oil. This Philips model won our roundup of the best air fryers, excelling in most of our testing.
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.
If the dad on your list loves beer, then he is going to really love making his own. A beer brewing kit is a gift that continues to give long after he has thrown away the wrapping paper. Getting him a brewmaster kit will give him a new hobby and a goal to reach, making a beer that he and the rest of the family loves. He'll be dying to invite his friends over to taste the new brew that he made from scratch. Watch in awe as he registers this gift when he opens it. Listen closely because you are about to hear him say, "oh this is so cool!"
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.
While many women are happy with "traditional" gifts like candy, flowers, or jewelry, it can sometimes be a bit harder to find a gift that resonates with a man. The best birthday gifts for him include everything from a new luxury watch to a stylish slim fit suit to a healthy supply of his favorite protein powder. The Ringside 100-pound Muay Thai Punching Heavy Bag is another great gift choice.
Philips Hue A19 smart light bulbs make it easy for Dad to create a relaxing environment for when he’s at home, and they’re even easier to control using Bluetooth and his smartphone. If your dad is particularly tech savvy, we recommend adding a Hue hub, which will allow him to set Schedules, as well as integrate the light bulbs with motion sensors and wireless switches from the Hue family of accessories. The White and Color Ambiance A19 Starter Kit includes four bulbs (and a Hue hub) to get dad’s system off the ground and running.
Create a fun, visual display of treasured family moments with these adorable Mixtiles. Choose one photographic Mixtile for as little as $12, or create dozens of gallery-worthy expressions for the whole crew. Even better? Your giftee won’t have to pull out a hammer and nails to put them up. All they have to do is peel off the sticky strips on the back of the frames and put them wherever they want. This set of nine Mixtiles is ideal over a dresser or entryway table, and it’s a perfect surprise gift that shows appreciation and artistic value.
While a personal massage therapist would be a wonderful gift, this portable massager is a more practical solution to alleviate muscle tension. We tried the line of Theragun products, and the mini stood out to us as an accessible and effective way to massage out any soreness. Plus, if she’s working in front of a desk all day, she’ll surely appreciate this pocket-size problem solver.
If he loved chocolate milk as a kid, this elevated health-focused version in a can will be the wow-worthy gift he’ll want to add to his regular routine. It’s a lactose-free, low-sugar, non-GMO, and high-protein take on everyone’s favorite childhood drink, with each can boasting a full 17 grams of protein and only 130 calories. It’s also a great protein solution for vegetarians who still enjoy dairy.
Facial hair may not be the only hair your dad wants to be rid of. (We don’t judge, and neither should you—he changed your diapers, after all.) In this case, we recommend the Panasonic Electric Body Hair Trimmer and Groomer. The Panasonic is vertically oriented (unlike other trimmers that work horizontally), water resistant, and extremely powerful, so your dad can easily cut through any annoying body hair in a single pass. Fully charged, the Panasonic’s battery lasts 40 minutes—more than enough time to get the job done.

If your dad just needs to chill out (and he’s open to it!), we recommend giving him the AirVape X, our favorite portable cannabis vaporizer—which we recommend after researching more than 50 models and testing nearly two dozen over the past four years. Whether he’s completely new to cannabis or has been a casual smoker in the past, a vaporizer is a great way to bypass the sticky, ashy, black mess that comes along with smoking joints, pipes, and bongs. It also provides a cleaner taste, less lingering odor, reduced throat irritation, and more efficient use of your material.

It contains organic oils blended with a concentrated hemp extract for a light, moisturizing oil that enhances relaxation. Each bottle contains 200 mg of hemp extract that works hard on muscles to soothe, calm, and relax. A massage with this stuff is a surefire way to be lulled into restful sleep.
Another item from the Stanley brand that makes the ‘nice’ list this Christmas is the Stanley Adventure Flask. Responsible for many shared family memories and adventures of friends, the all-steel vacuum bottle invented by William Stanley in 1913 is a prized possession that is often passed on from generation to generation, for camping trips and hikes. All Stanley vacuum bottles are easy to clean and are made to last a lifetime by using rustproof, food-grade stainless steel covered with a hammertone powder coat that can stand the test of time. You can enjoy your swig of beer without fear of rust being a part of the mixture. This flask can fit into anything and any occasion. Carry this flask it in your pocket while you have fun at a music festival or keep it in your hiking bag as you get closer to your campsite.

Right now, it's hard to find a regular Nintendo Switch that will arrive before Christmas, but the Nintendo Switch Lite is still available from Best Buy and is also a fantastic gift.
