Is it a cliché? Maybe. Is barbecue delicious? Definitely. This stainless steel four-piece kit by beloved kitchen tool brand All-Clad is a great gift idea for Dad or Grandpa and exactly what a grill master-in-training needs.
Graphic socks are the new cufflinks for guys, if you didn’t know. Available in seven stylish sock options, these dog-themed ones will definitely make him want to flash a bit of ankle the next time he crosses his legs (just tell him no #manspreading).
Whether he’s an urban adventurer, a nature lover or just a commuter who occasionally gets caught in bad weather, this backpack is cool, sleek and waterproof. Translation: His stuff will stay dry, and he’ll stay unfazed by the weather.
Looking for a practical gift he’ll love? Thanks to built-in Amazon Alexa, the Fitbit Versa 2 smartwatch is like having a virtual assistant -- it'll track his workouts, maintain his calendar and play music. (Bookmark this on your list of potential Father's Day gifts while you're at it.)
He may claim to not be a "candle person," and this is a great gift to prove him wrong. Nothing is more relaxing than this rich, earthy and delightfully smoky cannabis candle from Malin+Goetz. It’s THC-free but full of good vibes.
What would impress Dad even more than having his dear daughter or son tell him how fantastic he is? Having them say it in French -- and on a sweatshirt where everyone else can see it, too.
