Father's Day Gift Guide

Gifts that are sure to impress the millennial dads, boomers and every father in between

A Better Summer Shirt

This shirt is what a Hawaiian shirt wants to be. The eye-catching print is both cheeky and subtle; nothing like the headache-inducing pattern of the ubiquitous tourist top. The shirt is also breathable, with a lightweight blend of organic cotton and recycled poly. Zuckerfield Shirt, prana.com

Lounge in Style

Cargo shorts, while admittedly comfortable, scream the opposite of “cool dad.” Swap them out with this breezy pair. It’s made of a weave that wicks moisture—useful during humid summer days—and has a good amount of stretch. Capital Shorts, oliversapparel.com 

Cool Kicks for the Dogs

These lightweight sandals are the quintessential summertime footwear, made of soft Mubuck leather and a molded EVA footbed for cushioning. Although the sandals are meant to be used in the trails, nobody will judge him if he wears these while tending the garden. Yucatan Sandal, us.ecco.com

Cheers to Better Times

The best way to transport his favorite brew from the brewery to the backyard is with this 64-ounce growler. The cold-trapping insulation keeps the suds in perfect temperature until it’s ready to be enjoyed. Pick up the gift set that comes with four 12-ounce tumblers. Classic Easy Pour Growler, stanley-pmi.com

Cover Up

Is he still donning caps that devolve into a sweat-soaked mess in the middle of the day? Go with a model that has a mesh back, problem solved. This Fair Trade-certified sewn hat has a brim made with material from 100 percent recycled fishing nets. Fitz Roy Trucker Hat, patagonia.com

Fire Up the Barbie

This compact and modular grill is perfect for indulging in a little bit of camping cookery, wherever the location may be. It’s made of durable stainless steel and is designed in Japan for a lifetime of use. Takibi Fire & Grill, snowpeak.com

A Day’s Escape

If Father’s Day celebrations involve a trip to the beach (don’t forget to practice social distancing!), pack items that need to be kept cold inside this backpack cooler. Its Polar Layer foam keeps its contents cold for 24 hours—more than enough time for the drive to and from the shore. Icemule Classic Medium, icemulecoolers.com

Shades Aplenty

These all-around sunglasses shine when worn during a fishing trip. They come equipped with high-end polarized lenses to improve color and clarity when looking down on the water, as well as an included quick-attach leash. Castaway Sunglasses, smithoptics.com

Forever Young

Any guy should apply moisturizer on a daily basis, regardless of age, to maintain a healthy-looking skin for years to come. This shine-free lotion has no parabens, sulfates, phthalates, silicones or aluminum. Hydrating Face Lotion, usehuron.com

Go the Distance

This e-bike is great for short trips around town where a car would probably be excessive, but it’s equally impressive on its own as a way to cover a few miles and burn hundreds of calories in the process. We call that a win-win. Medeo T10 HMB, gazellebikes.com

A Page from the Relaxation Playbook

Whether this is for utility—say, getting rid of unpleasant scents—or for decoration, candles scented with masculine perfumes (this one has notes of matcha tea, lemon zest, and wood) always have a place in his abode. Candle, getbeast.com 

Comfortable Living

What living room can’t be improved with a sustainably crafted throw in merino wool, organic cotton, or recycled cotton? Even one adds just the right amount of warmth to any dwelling. Luxury Natural Throw Blankets, avocadogreenmattress.com

Recover Like a Pro

Whatever the source—a heavy workout, a job that requires plenty of physical exertion, carrying a growing child—this LED light therapy pad provides relaxation to the muscles and relieves spasms. For those suffering from arthritis, this increases blood circulation to alleviate pain and stiffness. Flex Pad, revivelighttherapy.com
