Father's Day Gifts for Every Type of Dad
Finding the perfect food- or drink-inspired present really comes down to deciphering Dad’s taste buds. Is he a coffee nut? Does he eschew wine for a tall pint of chilled lager? Or does he like to dreamily plant pea pods in the garden?
Think it over and consider a few of our favorite gifts for every type of Dad.
For the Caffeine-Crazed Dad: A Chemex Starter Set

If Dad’s a four-cup-a-day kind of guy, help him make each one amazing with this "pourover" coffee starter set from La Colombe. A hundred bucks gets you a Chemex six-cup brewer, filters, a scale to weigh your coffee beans, and a bag of La Colombe coffee.
Since pourover coffee is brewed a cup at a time, it’s super fresh, and the shape of the Chemex helps release tons of tantalizing aromas that’ll have Dad buzzing.
For the Tippler Dad: A Cocktail Club Membership

If Dad spends more time at the bar than manning the grill, a membership in New York City cocktail bar Saxon + Parole’s "Cabinet of Cocktail Curiosities" club might be just the thing. Each month, Saxon + Parole’s cocktail maestro Masa Urishido crafts a cocktail that’s bottled and sent to Dad’s doorstop.
For instance, this month’s cocktail is the Bluegrass Swizzle, a potent combination of Basil Hayden Bourbon, Fino Sherry, and a house-made sugary syrup infused with Provence herbs, lavender, rosemary, oregano, thyme, and marjoram. Try the membership out for $75 a month, $225 for three months, or $790 for a full year.
