A couple of years ago for Father’s Day I got Chris something I knew he’d never get himself. I got him a barbecue cookbook, and inside were tickets to Barbecue University, a 3-day class at Palmetto Bluff in South Carolina. Suffice to say he had the best time. But he wouldn’t have done it without my prompting because he would have felt guilty for investing that time and money into himself (he’s selfless like that).

Is your husband or dad the same way? That’s why one of the best things to give a guy for Father’s Day is the chance to do something that supports their hobbies. Maybe it’s a golf pass or grilling class. Maybe it’s a car detailing or guitar lessons. It’s just really fun to find something that really speaks to who they are as a person.

If you need a gift to go along with an experience (or just want something easy this year!), I’ve got you covered with these picks for Father’s Day.

Daily Driver Kit for MagSafe | $225 $165
Time to switch out dad’s wallet? Ridge’s Daily Driver Kit comes with their unique slim-design wallet and a matching key organizer (no more jingling keys — this case makes them silent). Upgrade to the MagSafe, which magnetically connects to the back of your iPhone. Chris has the Matte Olive and raves about it. Up to 40% off with our link! #ad

Ooni Pizza Oven | $799
If dad loves to grill, try upping his game with a pizza oven so he can create a signature pie! The Ooni is one of the most respected names in the game, and it’s the gift that keeps on giving to family and friends.

Fishing Vest | $26
Don’t let the name fool you, this vest is a jack-of-all-trades (sound like a guy you know?). From camping to photography, this vest can take on any adventure with plenty of pockets for your outdoorsman to store gear.

LEGO Icons Corvette | $149
Make him feel like a kid again with this car model building kit for a 1961 Corvette cabriolet sports car. It’s truly a collectible, with authentic features like an opening hood, spinning radiator fan, and removable roof.

Oslo Slim Laptop Bag | $155
For the guy on the go, this bag has serious staying power. It holds a laptop perfectly for everyday commutes or long flights. Go with the sleek moss color — it never fails to impress.

The Jack Boot In Navy | $295
A shoe featuring the craftsmanship worthy of a Renaissance man. It’s obvious that no detail has been spared in these boots that are handcrafted in Almansa, Spain. Dapper dad, delivered.

Personalized Braided Leather Bracelet | $160 $144
I love a gift that you can customize, and this leather bracelet perfectly fits the bill for dad. It has a masculine, rugged look with just a hint of gold. He can keep the kids close to his heart at all times.

Leaf Blower | $269
Give dad more time with the family on the weekends by making chores easier. We polled the team, and every guy said they’d love a high-powered leaf blower. I hear Ego Power+ is the best!

Carhartt Linus Cap | $68
Take dad out to the ballgame by tucking some tickets and this retro, sporty hat in a gift box. After all, you’re his biggest fan!

Fair Harbor Bungalow Trunk | $72
These Chris-approved swim trunks are so comfortable, he can’t stop getting them in more colors. On the fence with the 5″ length? Try the Anchor Trunk with multiple inseams to choose from.

Meat Shredder Claws | $25
Every backyard pitmaster needs this set of meat forks for shredding, lifting and serving barbecued pork or brisket. Five stars on Amazon!

Stance Icon Crew Socks | $29
There are socks and then there are socks. These breathable ones are the best on the market and will never let him down.

Braided Leather Belt | $128
One of the essentials he should have in his closet, a classic braided belt can go from the office to the golf course. These are made in Italy and — bonus — they’re totally adjustable for a custom fit!

Short-Sleeve Striped Linen Shirt | $98 $59
This breezy linen shirt will make dad look like a vintage movie star on holiday. (Pair it with a quick excursion to the seaside for extra gifting points!)

Oura Ring Gen3 | $299
Both Chris and I are obsessed with our Oura Rings. This sleek ring tracks so many different health metrics from steps to sleep, helping us stay on track and reach our wellness goals. It’ll make dad feel cared for in the best way.

Nesting Grill Baskets | $24
Shhhh, don’t tell Chris but I might be getting him this as part of his Father’s Day gift. There’s nothing he likes better than standing at the outdoor grill cooking up a meal for our family.

Bucket Golf Game | $114
I think there’s a universal requirement that dads have to love backyard games. This one has a unique spin on golf and is perfect to include the kids for family night.

Drift Car Air Freshener | $12
When I spotted this car air freshener, I was so happy to finally find one that was geared toward guys. It’s sleek. It smells like teak wood. It’s a great price. What’s not to love?

No matter what you pick, dad will be thrilled with any thoughtful Father’s Day gift. What are you eyeing for the man of honor this year?

I recently got an email from someone that asked, “Where do you go for new design inspiration?” She went on to say, “I use Houzz and lots of popular sites, but I feel like I’m stuck in an algorithm and keep seeing the same things.” I know the feeling — it’s so easy to get […]
