1. Proof 72-Hour Merino Polo
Here’s a polo for the low-maintenance dad who still likes to wear a collar from time to time (think golf outings, BBQs, and graduation parties). Made with moisture-wicking merino wool, this shirt is designed to be worn for 72 hours without showing signs of wear. So yeah, it can weather even the most raucous backyard bash. Buy it now.
2. Flint and Tinder 365 Pant
Think of all those years your dad spent crouching to tie your shoe, lace up your skates or attach bait to your fishing rod. Nobody tells you how much crouching is actually involved in fatherhood. Repay your dad with pants that are comfortable to move in. While these may look like chinos, they have the stretch of performance pants. Buy it now.
3. Proof Nomad Short
For the traveling dad, the Proof Nomad Short will keep him comfy on long flights and keep his essentials (like his passport) safe in a hidden zip pocket. Made with super breathable Japanese Toray twill and a water-resistant coating, this short is a bestseller for a reason. Buy it now.
4. Flint and Tinder 10-Year Hoodie
Every grilling, hauling, fixing, and doing-stuff dad needs a go-to hoodie. But most probably don’t have one that’s guaranteed to last for a decade. That’s where you come in: Treat your pops to this double-lined, structured sweatshirt with a secret inside media pocket for a phone or wallet. A true cross-country collaboration, the hoodie’s fleece comes from South Carolina, the heavy-duty zippers from Georgia, and the twill tape from Pennsylvania. Then it all gets constructed in California. Buy it now.
5. Victory Sportswear Speed Runner
If your dad’s been knocking around in the same kicks since your family had dial-up internet, he might need a little guidance in the style department. Introduce him to these casually-cool sneakers via a thoughtful gift. And if he’s resistant to change, just let him know that the high-quality pigskin suede provides durability, the specialized lining will keep his feet cool and dry, and they can be resoled up to four times! Buy it now.
6. Whiskey Peaks Mountain Decanter
Have a father who’s taken you on a hike or two? Pay homage to your many summits (even if it was just your local park most of the time) with this hand-blown whiskey decanter. The majestic peaks at the bottom of the vessel, made from 100% lead-free glass, will give a whole new meaning to a drink on the rocks. Buy it now.
7. FLIKR Fire Personal Concrete Fireplace
Make every time your dad tells a story a fireside tale. This mini fireplace is easy to use and convenient to light up indoors or on a backyard picnic table. It’s built from cement that doesn’t overheat, and it has adjustable bottom feet to protect any surface beneath it. Plus, the Tabletop Fireplace uses isopropyl alcohol for a clean burn that’s safe to eat over — time for s’mores! Buy it now.
8. The James Brand The Carter
Give your dad all the pomp and circumstance he deserves when you gift him this knife, aka “the daily Excalibur,” and knight him “Lord Dad, the Greatest Father in all the Land.” But in all seriousness, this tool, with a VG 10 stainless steel blade and a deep-carry pocket clip, will become mightier in his mind than any sword. Buy it now.
9. Barebones Classic Work Glove
He’s protected you from bee stings, stray baseballs, and that one time you tried to eat multiple bowls of refried beans (wait, nobody else?). The least you can do is protect his hands from his tinkering around the house and yard. These handmade work gloves are made from natural cowhide leather, making them soft, protective, and breathable. Plus, they’re crafted by Pakistani artisans as part of a cross-cultural program, so you can feel good buying them, and he can feel good wearing them. Buy them now.
10. YETI Trailhead Camp Chair
He raised you well, so now he deserves to kick back and relax. This camp chair is what he needs to do just that on his next adventure. Made by Yeti, which has a reputation for expertly engineered products, it’s built to last, with fabric that won’t sag or fade in the sun. Plus, it’s lightweight, easy to pack, and comes with a dual-strap carrying bag. The built-in cup holder is an added bonus. Buy it now.
