TBH, dads are generally pretty easy to please in the gift-giving department. Get him a comfy recliner or a gift card to Home Depot or just laugh a couple of times at his corny dad jokes, and he’ll be good for a while. So, can someone explain why it feels like the ultimate mission impossible when the time comes to shop for a good gift for dads, especially with Father’s Day coming up? (Ahem, June 19 to be exact.) We have a hunch it has to do with the fact that dads always claim they already have everything they need.

And while we appreciate that sweet sentiment—sure, it might be true your dad doesn’t *need* anything—he probably has his eye on a few items he would love to get. But if he didn’t leave tabs open on the family computer showing what he wants or flat out told you, “I want this,” then figuring out what present to buy that you know he’ll truly appreciate can be quite the head-scratching endeavor. Fortunately for you, we’ve come up with a lot of uber thoughtful gifts for your pops this Father’s day.

Whether you see the big guy every day or live thousands of miles apart, you can still make him smile by gifting him something that suits his interests. We’ve got ideas for every dad personality type: the golfer, the outdoorsman, the traveler, the musician—whatever your dad’s passion or hobby might be, we’ve got a gift idea that will speak to his soul (yes, we’re that confident in our selections).

From inexpensive gifts that he’ll use every day to pricier options he’ll only break out for special occasions—be prepared to feel the love when your dad opens one of these 96 cool AF gifts for men this Father’s Day.
