Most dads will tell you they already have everything they need, but that’s not very helpful when it comes to gift buying. We’ve put together some suggestions for something thoughtful and cool to give your old man this Father’s Day.


Upgrade His Daily Routine

You can upgrade some of the little things in his life by buying him some huge comfortable bath sheets or really freaking cool mountain glasswear.

For the coffee-drinking dad, the best Nespresso machine and a cup to keep it warm all day.

All the face-shaving members of The Inventory staff swear by the Philips OneBlade. If you think he might prefer an even closer shave, the Braun Series 7 was also recently crowned our readers’ favorite electric razor.


Upgrade His Wardrobe For The First Time In Years

Outfit your dear old dad in some incredibly comfortable and lightweight sneakers, Chelsea boots for summer, shorts with built-in liners, a merino pullover, or maybe some non-sloopy sweatpants he could actually wear out in the world. Or just give him more excuses to lounge.


Upgrade His Kitchen Game

For those dads who like to cook, consider gifting a smart and functional ThermoWorks thermometer, a quick-heating Nerd Chef pizza stone, a beautifully-designed Brooklyn Butcher Block, or an affordable Victorinox knife set.



Get Him Outside

Packed with more features than a YETI, yet cheaper, your practical father will appreciate an OtterBox cooler. If not that, then maybe a feature-packed rain coat, or a badass plasma lighter.



The Hobbyist

If your dad is retired like mine or if you’re buying for a father who is always looking for a new hobby, check out this home-brewing BeerDroid, a magic chess board, or a movie pass that doesn’t suck.
