Dads are notoriously difficult to shop for any time of year, let alone Father’s Day. If you ask the father on your shopping list what he might want this year, chances are he’ll say nothing at all. Have you noticed him eyeing a new tech gadget? If he wants it, he’ll buy it himself. And don’t even think of buying him a tie if he only wears it once a year. Thankfully, there are plenty of cool Father’s Day gift ideas for any man on your list this year. Our editors have tested and gifted these gadgets, elevated wardrobe basics, grooming products, and accessories to men who seem to have everything — and these gifts were total hit.

If you’re looking for a luxury gift for dad, opt for a wellness gadget he’s never heard of that will make him feel like a new man. From Theragun’s massaging eye mask to the Chillipad Bed Cooling System, any dad can unwind from a stressful day to get the best shut-eye possible (even if he has a restless newborn that wakes him in the middle of the night). For a sensible designer fashion gift, nothing makes a man walk with confidence quite like Loro Piana Summer Walks. For grooming goods, Lab Series has the perfect line-up of skin care products that has him covered, while Tom Ford’s latest perfume release will make him smell as fresh as he looks. A sensible Tommy John lightweight pajama set for summer is perfect for chill Saturdays before he practices his golf swing in the backyard with his new Rapsudo simulator. Speaking of the outdoors, any dad will appreciate Solo Stove’s tabletop fire pit (and the kids will, too).
