If you’ve gotten your father more ties, golf balls, and #1 dad mugs than he knows what to do with, you’ve come to the right place. Level up your gift-giving game this year with cool Father’s Day gifts your dad deserves.
For the Dad that Would Grill Anything If He Could
DiamondKingSmoker – Smoker Grill Box
DiamondKingSmoker makes smoking meat and fish easy because it works inside any grill. All Dad needs is a protein of choice and the box takes it from there, cooking ribs, chicken and more to smoky, tasty, doneness. It’s a simple process, but it does take some time to get that smoky goodness just right. An experiment we’re sure Dad will be happy to conduct.
GasWatch – Bluetooth-Enabled Propane Tank Scale
GasWatch wants to make sure Dad never runs out of grilling gas again. It’s a digital propane tank monitor that keeps an eye on the tank’s level. And it’s Bluetooth-enabled to send updates to his phone, too. The propane tank sits on the scale while it’s connected to the grill. And it’s safer than other measuring methods because it works with closed tanks.
MEATER – Wireless Smart Meat Thermometer
This smart meat thermometer and app work together to keep an eye on what’s cooking, so Dad doesn’t have to. The wireless stainless steel probe reads the temperature of meat and the ambient temperature in a grill or oven and connects to the easy-to-use app. The app sends alerts and cooking times —even a five-minute warning that food like steak or chicken is almost ready.
For the Dad Who is Always Looking for a New Project
Handle Rite – Ergonomic Loop Handle Pliers
Ergonomic loop-handle needle nose pliers from Handle Rite are an easier-to-grip redesign of the tried-and-true household tool. You can also opt for side cutter, lineman, and slip joint pliers that have all gotten the same makeover. The loop handles give dad better leverage and control of the pliers and feel good in his hand, especially if he is working with gloves on.
Forj – Moldable Thermoplastic Tape
Dad will keep this thermoplastic tape from Forj on hand for fix-its and patch-ups, to create a custom grip, or even to do some heavy-duty jobs. The self-bonding tape is lightweight and flexible and becomes moldable — and re-moldable— with heat. It hardens in minutes and has a tensile strength of over 1,000 pounds. Just heat, press, and repeat.
iFixit – Pro Tech Toolkit
iFixit contains all the poking, prying, gripping, lifting, ESD safety, and screw driving tools needed to service consumer electronics. It provides all the tools you need, and none you don’t. iFixit’s kits contain unfamiliar tools like Pentalobe and Torx bits—tools that the tech companies hope you won’t have so you’ll buy a new device or pay them to repair your existing one.
For the Dad Who is Always on the Cutting Edge
Time Traveler – iPhone & Apple Watch Battery Bank
The Time Traveler Apple Watch portable charger provides on-the-go power and is the only travel solution that lets you use your watch in Nightstand mode, too. The pocket-sized design combines an induction charging pad with a built-in Lightning cable and a USB port to charge three devices all at the same time.
JunoJumper – Portable Jump Starter
Your dad can jumpstart a car, but he probably needs another car to do it. At least he did. JunoJumper is a handheld car starter that won’t operate unless the cables are connected correctly, has a boost button that jumps completely dead batteries, and, when not jumping cars, charges a phone from 0 to 100% four times. On second thought, you might just want to get this for yourself.
Tablift – Flexible Universal Tablet Stand
Get your tablet out of your hands and into the perfect position. Tablift holds your tablet securely on top of bendable, adjustable legs, leaving you to enjoy it hands-free, even when lying completely flat. Use it in bed, on the couch, or on an uneven surface and it holds your tablet at eye level, which is easier on your neck. The flexible legs fold compactly for easy storage.
For the Dad Who Always Brings the Fun
Makeblock – Airblock Modular Programmable Drone
Dad can make this programmable drone from Makeblock look just how he wants and move how he wants, too. The modular design consists of a central hub and six foam-covered magnetic propeller modules that can be endlessly reconfigured—even as a hovercraft. The Makeblock app provides a simplified coding lesson and turns a smartphone or tablet into the remote control for the drone. And it’s where he can drag and drop commands to make their DIY drone fly and hover.
Chippo Golf – Outdoor Golf Game
Chippo Golf combines cornhole and chip shots to make for a fun new golf-centric backyard game. Use Dad’s irons to hit from turf-covered chipping mats into the netted holes. High-density foam balls have true spin and trajectory so they feel like the real thing but won’t cause damage like a real ball can. The game boards are made with lightweight and durable plastic that’s easy to stow or move to wherever Dad wants to play.
Across the Board – Wooden Tabletop Baseball Game
Across The Board games are handcrafted wooden tributes to classic games that are designed to get Dad and the whole family together. This baseball board game hits it out of the park. Roll the dice and run the pegs around the bases to score a run. The wooden game board is handcrafted in Missouri and is made with the mission to last for years of screen-free game night fun.
