With Father’s Day just around the corner, June 21st to be exact, it would be safe to assume that you have his gift already bought and wrapped, right? Nah? That’s what we figured, Father’s Day always sneaks up on us too. But no need to worry, we have the rundown on the best gifts for every type of Dad this year. Further, most are available online and can be delivered in time for the special day to make it even easier for you. So what are you waiting for?

Father’s Day Gift Ideas for the Backyard Dad
If you’re dad is like most backyard dads, he takes pride in his well manicured lawn. Spending hours cutting and maintaining his little oasis. But does he ever relax back there? May we suggest the perfect Dad staycation: a hammock, a book and a cocktail. We have found the most comfortable hammocks via Lee Valley and killer reads from Chapters Indigo.  Now about that cocktail, we suggest the Spritz Negroni from Ungava. It’s easy to make and refreshing.

But if Dad’s backyard is more pool than turf, maybe it’s time to gift him some new swimwear for Father’s Day. Canadian premium swimwear brand Copper Bottom Swim make the perfect swim trunk; their prints are fun yet classic and the length is not too short and not too long. Any dad, any age, would look great in these trunks.

Gifts for the Design Dad
If you have a design forward dad, you might find it tricky to find the perfect Father’s Day gift to match his aesthetic. But fear not, we have some great design forward ideas for his home and office. The perfect design forward ‘Dad Chair’ comes from Article; The Otio Leather Walnut Lounge Chair is the perfect combo of mid century aesthetic and the comfort he longs for today. Or maybe upgrade his home office lighting with the latest tech from Dyson. The Lightcycle Morph combines ideal task lighting and ambient lighting all in one. Plus he will love its slick minimalist design.

Fresh Gift Ideas for the Foodie Dad
If you have the type of Dad that loves to cook up a big pot of chili on the regular or considers himself the grill-master of the household, then you have a foodie dad on your hands. So why not help him up his cooking skills with some great foodie themed gifts? (Added bonus: more great food for you).

The past year has seen the return of the pressure cooker and we firmly believe every well stocked kitchen should have one. But why not up the ante with a pressure cooker that also air fries? The Ninja Foodi 9-in-1 Pressure Cooker &Air Fryer does everything dad could ever want: pressure cooks, air crisps, sears, bakes, broils, steams, dehyrdates, etc. Or how about upgrading his knives? Every proper chef needs a set of high quality knives, so why not pick up the Grand Maître Chef Set from Victorinox? Sounds impressive, right?

What to Gift the Gamer Dad
If you have a Dad who still tells tall tales of his gaming prowess at the local arcade, maybe it’s time to bring the gaming home. And when your Father’s Day gift includes a gaming console, you can go head-to-head with him and see if he really is as good as he claims.

The obvious gift of choice if you want to challenge him would be a PlayStation 4. This gaming station will get him up to speed with the latest in gaming technology and games. Soon enough he will be challenging you to online hockey games or medieval battles. Be prepared! Or if you want Dad to always win, opt for some solo gaming with the Nintendo Switch Lite – the perfect solo gaming console to keep him occupied.

Father’s Day Gift Ideas for the Hipster Dad
I think it is safe to say that many of us have a hipster dad, or at least a dad we want to be more hipster, right? So why not upgrade his wardrobe with, the hipster summer staple, a printed camp shirt? Yes, yes it much like a printed Hawaiian shirt but much cooler. We found some fashion forward printed shirts via GT Boutique that won’t break the bank and will make Dad look cool this summer. Further, every hipster dad needs some great shades this summer. Opt for sunglasses from Bohten; the brand is known for their fashion forward sunnies made from sustainably sourced materials in West Africa. Finally, every hipster dad needs a fixie bike from Martone Cycling.

Gifts for the Sporty Dad
If your dad is the kind of dad that likes to keep track of active he is, it’s time to gift him a Fit Bit. The Fitbit Versa 2 smartwatch is compatible with Amazon Alexa and can do everything from track his steps, calories burned, heart rate, and even the hours of sleep he gets every night. The perfect gift for the active dad. Or maybe pick him up some new workout wear from Uniqlo. Their Dry-Ex collection will keep him cool and stylish as he works up a sweat.

Tech-Forward Dad Gifts
Every Tech-Forward Dad should have a smart home, so why not help him set one up with the perfect hub from Google. The Google Hub Max can control everything in his home;  works with over 1000 compatible smart lights, cameras, locks (and even his television). If you have the type of Dad who loves to crank up the tunes, this just might be the perfect Father’s Day gift for him. The Sony XB41 speaker let’s him keep the jams pumping no matter where the party takes him. This compact, wireless speaker offers big sound and can connect to other speakers for multi-room enjoyment.

Giftables for the Well-Groomed Dad
We believe the foundation of a well groomed dad is a great shave. So why not upgrade his grooming game with the latest from Gillette? The SkinGuard razor ensures a close shave with minimal irritation. You can even order it for him via Gillette On-Demand system – ensuring he gets fresh razors every few months. Now that he has a close shave, he needs some great skincare. Kiehls is known for their great skincare for men, and for Father’s Day they have put together a gift set to take care of his face, hair and body. Or pick him up the latest skincare from Lumin – he will love their No-Nonsense Charcoal Cleanser. Everyone loves a great smelling Dad, so why not gift him one of the freshest fragrances? From Gucci Guilty Pour Homme to Tiffany & Love for Him or even the classic Hugo Boss Bottled – he will be smelling fine and dandy. Finally, don’t forget about Dad’s perfect coif. Gift him some hair styling products from American Crew.
