If your dad already has everything he needs, and is so hard to shop for, you’ve come to the right place. At least one of these unique ideas should be perfect for him!
Bygone Backpack Cooler

OK, odds are he already has a cooler, but this one comes in backpack form and can fit an entire 12-pack of beer—with ice—inside its main compartment. Of course, it is also tall enough to fit a few bottles of wine inside, if that’s more his thing.
Stainless Steel Ice Packs
some classy ice packs
He may have those blue-looking cold packs at home, but, I assure you, he does not have leak-free, stainless steel ones. These babies are much better looking than their older counterparts, plus they will keep your cooler contents chilled for four to six hours!
Trancoso Wooden Beach Bat and Ball Set

Help him maximize his time at the beach this summer—or just have fun in the yard—with this set of multi-tone wooden paddles and rubber balls.
Chef Knife Making Kit
a chef-quality knife-making kit
For the dad who loves to cook or grill, there’s no better tool than a chopping knife he’s made himself. This kit comes with a blank knife he’ll have to sharpen perfectly and a wooden handle he’ll have to carve and screw into place.
Dutch Leather Oven Mitt

Speaking of cooking, grilling, baking, what-have-you: Why not upgrade his standard oven mitts with a colorful leather one?
Dutch Leather Apron

And while we’re at it—help him get his coordination on with a matching leather apron that’ll keep him protected whenever he’s attempting dinner.
Marmont Leather Money Clip

Sure he’s got a wallet, but for those times he doesn’t want to carry all his cards, cash, and receipts, this timeless moneyclip will come in handy.
Element DLP Projector
A movie buff will love this tiny projector that can hook up to his laptop or phone. It works on any solid surface and can project up to 11.32-feet of screen from mere inches away. If he wants, he can also use the device at work, as it is compatible with USB and HDMI cords and dongles.
Small-Batch Quarterly Hot Sauce Subscription

Excuse me, but does he like spice? Maybe he’ll enjoy this subscription that’ll have three new hot sauces appearing at his door every three months.
Striped Spray Slides
a trendier weekend shoe
Get him out of his classic slippers and into a pair of striped pool slides that will keep his feet happy, but be a tad more stylish in case anyone’s coming over.
Sofort Instant Camera

Photography his thing? Yeah, digital pics are great and all, but he might appreciate the new version of this vintage Leica camera.
Custom Baseball Cards

Sports fans will appreciate this customizable set of trading cards with his picture, logo, and team in the same design as the professional MLB players’ merch.
Main Street Farmhouse Silver Cloud
an overnight stay in a vintage trailer
If your dad truly has everything, the one thing he couldn’t already own is a future trip. A cool staycation spot, like this vintage airstream AirBNB trailer located in California’s wine country, might be the perfect present. But if that’s out of the budget, try going on a day trip, like a hike in a nearby park.
alpaca socks, just ’cause
IDK, sometimes a guy just needs a pair of llama socks.
Two-Pack Playing Cards

A spare deck of playing cards is always useful, and this ultra classy duo will look elegant on his game table.
Portable Openfire Pit

He may not *need* a take-it-anywhere fire pit but he definitely wants one.
Pizza Grilling Crate

If pizza is his food group of choice, he’ll love this boxed set of supplies that will help him grill up the best-tasting pie of his life. If pizza isn’t his thing, just check out this site, Man Crates: They’ve got something for pretty much any hobby or interest that he’s into.
File this under: “Things You Never Knew Existed but Also Sound Amazing.” If he loves his whiskey, he’ll definitely appreciate these long toothpicks, which have been infused in a barrel-aged, Islay single malt made by a 200-year-old distillery. Yum.
