For The Dad Who Has Everything But An Outdoor TV: Furrion Aurora Weatherproof 4K LED Outdoor TV

For The Dad Who Jogs

Runner 60 Waterproof Wireless Earbuds

Runners love to listen to music and podcasts while jogging around town, but not many earbuds are designed with workouts in mind. The Runner 60 earbuds from Back Bay Audio are just what the doctor ordered—they’re true wireless for convenience, but wrap around the ear for a secure fit even when bouncing up and down on pavement. They also have a formidable IPX7 rating that means they’re fully waterproof, resilient to sweating, and great for running in the rain. In addition, they offer an 8-hour battery life—and can charge 9 more times from the charging case without plugging them back into the wall. Despite all that, they sound solid with a bass boost mode for distortion-free playback.

For the Handyman

Fanttik Electric Cordless Screwdriver

If your dad is a bit of a handyman, he probably already has an electric drill that can do double duty as a power screwdriver. But the Fanttik Electric Cordless Screwdriver is a much better option when it comes to driving screws. It’s small enough that it’ll fit in tight spaces, yet offers a generous amount of torque thanks to the neodymium motor and 2,000-mAh battery (which can drive about 260 screws before needing a recharge via the USB port). A magnetic keyless chuck makes it a snap to pop the bits in and out, and there’s even an LED ring light in front to illuminate your project.

For an Avid Griller

Meater Plus Smart Wireless Meat Thermometer

A meat thermometer is, forgive the expression, table stakes when it comes to baking poultry or grilling meats. But a lot of wireless thermometers are inconvenient or rely on hard-to-replace button batteries. Not Meater, though: This elegant thermometer automatically recharges in its attractive bamboo dock via a AAA battery. You can monitor your cook on your smartphone from yup to 165 feet away, seeing both the meat’s internal temperature and the ambient temp inside the oven or grill thanks to a pair of sensors on the probe. It’s one of the best tools any grilling guy could ask for.

For Dad the Baker

10 Must Have Spices Gift Box

Ilya Foods has a wondrously eclectic collection of flours (like tapioca, tigernut and hibiscus, for starters) and spices, and if your dad loves to create in the kitchen, you can brighten his day with this 10 “must have” spices gift box. You get all the essentials, namely cayenne pepper, red chili pepper flakes, ginger, turmeric, garlic, onion, sweet paprika, black pepper ground, parsley flakes and thyme. Ilya leans into quality ingredients and says that these are “preservative-free, additives-free, fillers free, msg-free, nothing artificial ever.” Help dad elevate his cooking with this bundle.

For Gamers

SteelSeries Arctis 5 RGB Illuminated Gaming Headset

If your dad is an avid video gamer, help him step up his game with a high-quality headset. SteelSeries is one of the most respected audio brands for gamers, and the Arctis 5 has won numerous awards for excellence in sound quality. RGB lighting add some panache to the headphones, but they’re also very comfortable thanks to to the padded, floating headband. The DTS Headphone: X v2.0 surround sound helps envelop you in gameplay, and multiplayer gaming is improved with the noise-cancelling microphone which retracts into the earcup when not in use.

For the Man Who Wants to Work Out without Leaving His Desk

LifePro Under Desk Elliptical Trainer

Does your dad work long hours and complain about never having time to exercise? Here’s the solution. The LifePro Under Desk Elliptical Trainer is a compact exerciser that lets you get an elliptical-like workout without getting out of your desk chair. It has 8 levels of resistance for dialing in just the workout you want to get, and a built-in handle makes it easily portable between work and home. And aside from a pair of AA batteries to power the display, the LifePro is entirely powered by pedaling, so there’s no need to plug it in to get a workout.

For Dads Who Like to Keep Things Hot

Ember Temperature Control Smart Mug 2

We’ve long been fans of the Ember smart mug; an integrated battery helps keep your beverage at the exact temperature you like between 120 and 145 degrees fort up to about 80 minutes at a time—or all day long if you leave it on the charging coaster. The Ember mug is app-controlled, but your phone is optional, because the mug will automatically default to the last temperature you had set each time you use it. IUt5’s easy to use, easy to wash, and fully submersible with an IPX7 waterproof rating. Finally, dad can keep his coffee at the perfect temperature all morning.

For Dads Who Love the Lawn (But Not Watering It)

Rachio 8 Zone Smart Sprinkler Controller

The Rachio 8ZULWC-L R3e Generation helps your dad automate lawncare without spending a fortune. This inexpensive controller can manage 8 sprinkler zones and installs easily in about 30 minutes if you’re replacing an existing controller. It’s compatible with Rachio’s mobile app—so dad can set the sprinkler schedule from his phone—or by voice with Alexa. Perhaps the coolest feature, though, is that the controller can automatically adjust its watering in response to the weather with settings like Rain Skip, Wind Skip, Freeze Skip and others.

For Men Who Relish Warm Feet

Hanes Men’s Moccasin Slipper

This is a real slipper—a slipper worthy of your dad. Rather than a trendy open-heel shoe, this is a traditional moccasin design that won’t consistently make dad feel like his slippers are precariously sliding off his feet. It’s also made with memory foam cushioning and has Hanes’ Fresh IQ odor protection technology, so it’ll smell as fresh as it looks for a long time to come. It comes in nine colors and six sizes, so there’s a version of this slipper for everyone.

For Guys Who Like to Measure Stuff

Meterk 2-in-1 Laser Tape Measure

Of course, your dad already has a tape measure in the junk drawer or toolbox. But the Meterk 2-in-1 Laser Tape Measure finally lets him step up to laser measuring. Yes, it has a traditional 16-foot aluminum tape, but it can also measure distances up to 131 feet with the laser tool which displays results on the illuminated LCD display. And it has a slew of features, like the ability to add or subtract distances, measure area and volume, and even indirectly find something’s height by measuring a triangle.

For Dads In Need of Self-Care

Sonic Handheld Percussion Massage Gun

Theragun might have started the whole percussive massager craze, but you don’t have to spend hundreds of dollars to let your dad take advantage of some deep-tissue massaging after a workout. The Sonic Handheld Percussion Massage Gun from LifePro is an affordable alternative that offers 5 intensity levels ranging from a low 20Hz to a powerful 45Hz, as well as 8 massage heads for targeting different parts of the body. The wireless massage gun can run for 3 to 6 hours (depending on the intensity level) between charges. And it all packs away neatly in a small carrying case.

For the Watch Lover

Nove Modena Automatic

If your dad loves watches and you have a generous budget to show him some love, check out the Modena Automatic. This wristwatch features a beautiful, scratch-resistant double curve sapphire crystal and is powered by a Swiss R150 automatic movement. In addition to the understated two-tone fading sunray watch face, you also gets a partial skeleton watch around back—you can see the mechanism through a portal on the bottom. It’s waterproof up to 200 meters. 

For a Dad In Search of His Roots

AncestryDNA Genetic Test

Everyone wants to know more about their family history, ancestors, roots and relatives. If your dad is especially intrigued by the past, give the gift of a DNA test. AncestryDNA’s genetic test comes with an easy-to-use swab kit that your dad simply needs to pop in the mail using the prepaid envelope. A few weeks later, the results will tell him all sorts of details about his precise ethnicity, give historical insights and allow him to connect with other living relatives who have also opted into the AncestryDNA network. Results are available via the AncestryDNA website and mobile app. And it’s a gift that pays off handsomely, because his results can help you learn more about your own family story, too.

For the Dad Who Has Everything But An Outdoor TV

Furrion Aurora Weatherproof 4K LED Outdoor TV

For many people, this might be a more aspirational gift idea, but if the budget allows, what could be better than giving your dad a TV for the backyard? Designed for outdoor entertainment, you can mount this in any shaded outdoor area like a covered patio, shaded terrace or screened gazebo. It’s a 43-inch 4K UHD television that’s weatherproof with an IP54 rating, meaning it can handle rain, snow and other weather. The 350-nit anti-glare screen helps the TV remain usable in various lighting conditions and it’s all fully sealed for protection from the elements.
