For dads who love to bird-watch from their kitchen, Wirecutter’s pick for the best bird feeder is the Droll Yankees 18-Inch Onyx Mixed Seed Bird Feeder with Removable Base. It was the sturdiest and best-built bird feeder we tested, with tough metal components that secure tightly to the body of the feeder. The Onyx is versatile enough to hold several different feed types, and it’s backed by a lifetime guarantee against the damage any pesky squirrels can do. The base is easy to take off and clean, and—most importantly—there’s plenty of room for birds to perch.

If your dad routinely unwinds after work with a bottle glass of merlot, we bet he would appreciate a gift card from your local wine shop. If you don’t have one, we recommend Astor Wines & Spirits, which has a collection that spans the globe and often runs sales on already affordable wine. Astor Wines & Spirits is based in New York City, but it ships nationally (check its website for state-based restrictions). It also has a great selection of wines, sake, and spirits for the dad who lives more than a few blocks from a good wine shop. If his tastes are evolved enough that he knows exactly what he likes, he can search the Astor site by name, country, region, or grape.
This coffee maker is both high-tech and elegant. The unique brewing process uses a vacuum to pull water through the coffee grounds. The crema—the white foamy part—is separated from the final brew, resulting in a smoother, less bitter blend. Oh, and it’s quick too. The FrankOne brews a cup of hot coffee in 30 seconds. Cold brew takes just four minutes, rather than the usual overnight process.

Yes, it's possible to look good even when the temperatures drop below freezing. Canada Goose continues to be a favorite with our readers. While many Canada Goose coats are selling out, the top-rated 'MacMillan' is still available. The jacket has 625-fill-power duck down and is temperature rated down to -5 degrees farenheit, so it will easily contend with blustery winter winds.
A grill might not be the most original gift for dads, but our favorite pellet grill is anything but traditional. The Traeger Pro 575 maintains its set temperature to produce tender, juicier meat more consistently than the competition. It can also connect to Wi-Fi, which allows cooks to monitor it from afar—and frees up Dad to join the party instead of hovering over the food. (No judgments if he wants to throw a few burgers on the ol’ charcoal grill for fun, though.)
While Yeti makes our all-time favorite cooler, you might not want to shell out nearly $1,000 (!!) for his gift. Fortunately, you can get him the Yeti he loves at a more affordable price point (i.e. less than $25) with the popular Rambler mug. Made of double vacuum-insulated stainless steel, it has nearly 12,000 reviews on Amazon for keeping coffee steaming hot (or their water ice cold) for hours.
