Choosing the perfect Father’s Day gift can feel like navigating a minefield, especially when Dad’s hobbies range from “collecting rare stamps” to “reorganizing the garage for fun.” But fear not, our gift guides gives you an array of cool options. For the dad who loves his backyard gatherings, a Brutank cooler can keep his drinks icy cold and his dad jokes flowing smoothly.

If he’s more of a fix-it fanatic, the Vornado heavy-duty fan will keep him cool as he tackles his next big project. And for the pool-loving dad, the Bettabot pool skimmer will give him more time to lounge and less time fishing out leaves. Just remember, no matter what you choose, it’s the thought that counts—and that you didn’t resort to getting him another tie… again. Of course, if Dad’s home bar needs a new bottle or two, we have some recommendations too.
