Attention: Father’s Day is This Sunday! Yes, it feels like Mother’s Day just happened (it kind of did) and now it’s time to honor the other half of your parental equation. Luckily, most of these items ship in time for a Sunday arrival (and some are available through Amazon Prime, so order today and they’re yours – or his – by Wednesday!) Let’s check out a few of the best Father’s Day 2014 gifts we could scrounge up from around the web.
For the Chef (Wannabe) – Know a Dad who’s ready to take his cooking to the next level? Try a subscription to Cook Smarts – They’re weekly, healthy meal plans with explicit prep and cooking instructions and categorized shopping lists. They also place the focus on the meals being healthy, fun to make, and improving your cooking skills. No thinking required, and perfect for the guy who’s ready to add more than meatloaf to his kitchen repertoire.
For the Floridian – Or, well, any Dad who doesn’t mind getting his feet wet. These classic Katin trunks are bound to make Dad look like a beach stud, not a beach bum. $68.99
For the Beer Drinker – May he never again endure the tortuous wait for his suds to cool, thanks to the Chillsner. $29.95
For the Grill Mastah – But the grill master who prefers science to a gut feeling for when the steaks are medium rare. iGrill Mini $39.99
For the Dad who’s always asking What Time it Is – Time for him to get a watch. TAG Heuer Aquaracer Professional $899
For the Hip Dad – If he’s on the cutting edge, he’s probably into all things subscription, and all things artisanal. Combine both with Bespoke Post. $45 per month or $55 per box.
For the Paleo Dad – Add to subscription and artisanal, dehydrated meat. It’s all the rage. Indulge him in (healthy) gourmet jerky courtesy of KRAVE. $42 for the Favorites Sampler.
For the Couch Potato – If it were up to him, he’d control everything with a remote. Get him one step closer with the Belkin WeMo light switch so he can master the power of photons using his smart phone. $44
For the Adventure Seeker – The GoPro is the hottest device on social media right now, with its bright, cool photo taking ability and jealousy-inducing documenting skills. Every stand up paddle boarding, parachuting, kayaking, spearfishing Dad needs one. $299
For the Comfort Seeker – If the closest your Dad gets to parachuting is parachute pants, it’s time for a closet makeover. Start with these insanely comfortable SWIMS loafers. They’re like Crocs, but less eye-singeing. Dad will love them. $90-$162
