The Best Father’s Day Gifts

1. For The Dad Who Loves to Grill: Cast Iron Grill Pans

A cast-iron grill pan would be an amazing gift for any dad who loves to grill! These pans are especially great for folks who don’t own an outdoor grill…or who love grilling so much that they want to do it all year round. The cast iron evenly distributes and retains heat, so it gives food a gorgeous char just like you’d get on an outdoor grill. I love this enameled cast-iron Staub grill pan because it comes in a range of colors, is small enough for everyday use, and is super easy to wash with soap and water.

The Lodge reversible griddle is a great affordable option that has a flat griddle side and a groove griddle, making it one of the best Father’s Day gifts for the dad who wants a little flexibility.

2. For The Dad with Limited Grilling Space: Weber Spirit II Grill

Best Father's Day gifts - Weber grill

We own this Weber Spirit II Grill, and we love it because it’s perfect for grilling on smaller decks or balconies. Its compact design has a side table that can be folded down for easier storage. And though it’s small, it still features the infinity ignition propane, high performance burners, flavorizer bars, and grease management system that Weber fans swear by. There’s also a center-mounted thermometer that lets Dad check the temp with just a quick glance. Another great feature? Six tool hooks on the side keep your grilling tools within easy reach.

3. For The Grill Master: Grilling Accessories

OXO grilling tools

If Dad considers himself the family grill master, these grilling accessories are the best Father’s Day gifts around! I love pretty much anything from OXO, and the OXO Grilling Turner and Tong Set does not disappoint. The tongs are comfortable to hold and the wide head with a beveled edge glides under food for easy flipping. Plus, the stainless steel and non-slip silicone grips are rust-resistant and dishwasher safe. Gotta love that easy cleanup!

I also recommend this Char-Broil grill basket set, which I use to grill ALL the summer veggies. The set includes a grill topper, round pan, and square pan, which are small enough that you can make grilled tofu or veggie burgers on the other side of the grill while you cook your veggies. With a non-stick finish, these baskets are also easy to clean.

4. For The Serious Pizza Lover: A Pizza Oven

Best Father's Day gifts - Breville Pizza Oven

At-home pizza ovens are one of the best Father’s Day gifts this year! I got the Breville Smart Oven Pizzaiolo Pizza Oven for Jack a year ago, and it’s really leveled up our pizza game. It comes with preset functions so that you can make any style of pizza you like—think wood-fired, New York, pan, or thin and crispy. It gives the crust an authentic wood-fired taste with a texture that’s better than what you can achieve in a regular oven.

Our friends also have the gas-powered Ooni Koda Portable Pizza Oven and love it for backyard pizza-making. This portable outdoor pizza oven can reach up to 950°F in 15 minutes—that’s hot enough to cook a pizza in just 60 seconds!

5. For The One Who Loves A Pizza Party: Picnic Time Acacia Pizza Peel

If you need a last-minute Father’s Day gift that Dad probably doesn’t already have, the Acacia Pizza Peel is the perfect present. The acacia wood makes for a gorgeous serving platter to display your glorious ‘za after pulling it out of the hot oven. Not only will Dad appreciate not burning his fingers, but he’ll also like the easy cleanup—just wipe it down with a damp cloth and use the hole in the handle to hang it to dry.

6. For The Dad Who Loves Happy Hour: Hearth & Hand Clear Plastic Ice Bucket

Hearth & Hand Ice Bucket

An ice bucket is essential for happy hour on the patio. This stunning Hearth & Hand Clear Plastic Ice Bucket is made from BPA-free materials, so it’s safe to use and won’t crack like glass if it takes a tumble. The clear material makes it easy to see if you need to add more ice for your next round of palomas, and the metal handle makes it easy to carry.

7. For The Dad Who Loves to Play Bartender: Bar Accessories

Bar Accessory Set

I love this 5-piece Houdini Bar Tool Set because it has everything Dad needs to be a mixologist: a jigger, a strainer, a wooden muddler for mojitos, a spoon for stirring, and a shaker. Or, to up Dad’s cocktail game even more, consider the Foster & Rye Canvas Travel Bartender Kit, which comes equipped with similar tools, plus a channel knife and ice tongs, that tuck away into a canvas roll-up for portable storage. I think it’s a truly unique gift for any cocktail lover or mixologist who has a rugged aesthetic.

If you’re just looking for a shaker, the Threshold Stainless Steel Hammered Cocktail Shaker is a stunning option. The cap doubles as a shot glass for easy measuring without taking up too much cabinet space. Plus, it’s dishwasher-safe.

8. For The Quick Cocktail Maker: Libbey Mixologist Essentials 2-Piece Measuring Glass Set

Best Father's Day gifts - Mixologist glass set

If the dad in your life doesn’t want to fuss with a jigger and measuring cup, this Libbey Mixologist Measuring Glass will give him perfect measurements for his favorite cocktails. It also comes with a 4-ounce shot glass that has measuring lines printed on the sides in both ounces and cups to help Dad mix cocktails with perfect ratios. Pair this set with Dad’s favorite bottle of rum, gin, vodka, tequila, or whiskey for a fun Father’s Day gift!

9. For The Playful One: Hearth & Hand Kids’ Indoor Grilling Playset

Hearth & Hand Kids Grilling Play Set

If Dad’s favorite way to spend an afternoon is playing with the kiddos, this Hearth & Hand Kids’ Indoor Grilling Playset would be such a fun gift! It includes 18 pretend kitchen and food accessories like a burger, corn, coasters, mustard, ketchup bottles, and more so that your little ones can “grill” alongside dad. It’s suggested for kids 2+ years old and some assembly is required. In our house, this set would be a hit with the whole family!

10. For The One Frying Up Something Special: Staub Cast Iron Fry Pan

Know a Dad who loves cast-iron? There’s no better gift than a Staub frying pan. I use mine nearly every day for everything from frittatas to caramelized onions. The enameled cast-iron offers steady, even heat distribution for the best sear and sauté. It’s also easy to wash with just soap and water—there’s no special seasoning required!

I have both the 10- and 12-inch Staub pans. Both have the same great features: pouring spouts for draining off excess liquid and low, curved sides that make it easy to flip food. Each size comes in a range of colors.

11. For The Outdoor Adventurer: Portable Coolers

Best Father's Day gifts - soft Yeti cooler

If Dad loves camping, cookouts, or long days at the beach, a soft-sided cooler would be an amazing Father’s Day gift! We love the Yeti Hopper Flip 12 Portable Soft Cooler because it’s super durable and has superior insulation—we can keep up to 12 cans plus ice cold for hours on end. It also has a large opening so you don’t feel like you’re constantly digging through ice-cold water. It’s a bit pricey but totally worth it in my opinion.

For a budget-friendly option, I recommend the Arctic Zone Titan Deep Freezer Cooler. The 20-quart option holds up to 30 cans and keeps them cold for up to 3 days! It also has a removable shelf to keep things like sandwiches and drinks separate to prevent squishing.

12. For The Coffee Lover: Baratza Encore Coffee Grinder

Baratza coffee grinder

This Father’s Day gift is a must for the coffee-loving dad! The Baratza Encore Coffee Grinder has 40 grind settings, so Dad can grind coffee beans suited to whatever style of coffee he likes to make. Options include pour-over, French press, espresso, Aeropress, Hario V60, Chemex, and more. The grinder comes in black and white and is relatively small, so you can easily keep it on your countertop.

13. For The Pour-Over Fan: Chemex Classic Series 6-Cup Pour-Over Coffeemaker

Best Father's Day gifts - Chemex coffeemaker

This Chemex Coffeemaker has a simple, elegant look and makes amazing pour-over coffee. It’s made of Borosilicate glass, which doesn’t absorb odors or chemical residues. Whether Dad already loves pour-over brews or is curious about upgrading his coffee routine, it would make a great Father’s Day gift. Don’t forget to grab the matching coffee filters so he can get started right away!

14. For The Caffeinated Camper: Aeropress Go Portable Travel Coffee Press Kit

Aeropress travel set

If your dad loves coffee—but NOT the crummy gas station coffee he’s forced to drink while traveling—get his hands on the Aeropress Go Portable Travel Coffee Press Kit. It’s a cross between a pour-over and a French press, and it’s by far the best way I’ve found to make coffee when you’re camping or on the go! It packs down into a plastic mug with a red silicone lid. Inside, you’ll find a tiny spoon, a foldable stirrer to swish the grounds around, and a little case that holds microfilters, which yield a great, grit-free cup of coffee.

15. For The Slow Sipper: Yeti Rambler 20-Ounce Vacuum Insulated Tumbler

Yeti Rambler Tumbler

If TikTok trends were geared toward dads, this Yeti tumbler would always be trending. It’s easily one of the most popular gifts for men! Any Dad will love this 20-ounce stainless steel tumbler for its ability to keep liquids cold or hot all day long. The MagSlider lid makes this tumbler extra-special, using magnets to keep it from popping open to reduce the risk of spilling. You can pick Dad’s favorite color from 20 different hues!

16. For The One Who Could Eat S’mores All Year Long: Solo Stove Bonfire Smokeless Fire Pit

Solo Stove Portable Fire Pit

This cult-favorite portable fire pit is perfect for the outdoorsy Dad, especially if he’s a fan of roasting marshmallows or camping! True to its word, it’s 100 percent smokeless, and it has a sleek, durable stainless steel construction. It only weighs 23 pounds, so it’s easy to move around and take on outdoor adventures. For fuel, Dad can choose to use firewood logs or wood pellets, which put out that classic bonfire scent.

17. For The Spicy One: TRUFF Gourmet Hot Sauce Gift Pack

Truff Hot Sauce Set

If you’re looking for a unique Father’s Day gift, this TRUFF hot sauce pack is a great option for the truffle and hot sauce lover in your life. It comes with the brand’s signature black truffle and white truffle hot sauces as well as the coveted black truffle oil he can use for drizzling or cooking. A little goes a long way towards taking pizza, burrito bowls, and French fries to the next level of yumminess.

18. For The Coffee Lover: Stumptown Coffee Roasters Organic Whole Bean Coffee

Stumptown coffee beans

If your dad knows a cup of coffee is not just a cup of coffee, get him a quality bean to enjoy in the morning. Stumptown Coffee Roasters signature beans are 100% organic Arabica coffee that is part of a direct trade program, so you’ll be helping coffee farmers while helping Dad enjoy a great cup of joe. The Founder’s Blend has notes of vanilla and cocoa powder, but there are a few other blends worth checking out!

19. For The Foodie: Brightland The Duo Extra Virgin Olive Oils

Best Father's Day gifts - Brightland olive oils

Quality olive oil will quickly become a game changer for any foodie. Brightland Olive Oil comes from olives grown on small family farms in California that are cold-pressed for freshness and flavor. The two-pack comes with the Awake oil for cooking and the smoother Alive that is best for drizzling on bread or veggies. The whole family might never go back to “regular” oil again.

20. For The Sweetheart With a Sweet Tooth: Tony’s Chocolonely Milk Chocolate Bundle

Best Father's Day gifts - Tony's Chocolonely chocolate bars

There are chocolate bars, and then there are the ultra-chewy Tony’s Chocolonely chocolate bars. Dad will smile like a kid when he tears into the giant bar to discover a foil wrapper. In honor of the company’s dedication to combating the inequalities of the chocolate industry, none of the pieces are equal in size and you’ll see a small map of West Africa, where the brand sources its chocolate ethically, on the wrapper. This 3-pack features one bar each of the classic milk chocolate, caramel sea salt, and hazelnut.

21. For The Home Chef: Cuisinart 7-Cup Food Processor

7-cup food processor

This Cuisinart 7-Cup Food Processor is the ultimate kitchen gift for a home chef who wants to make delicious dips, spreads, sauces, or pie crust. It’s the one I own, and I love how easy it is to use and clean. It comes with attachments for chopping, pureeing, shredding, and slicing veggies and cheese.
