Father's Day is just about here, and even though the old man says he'd be happy with nothing, you couldn't do that to him. I mean... I guess you could just FaceTime him, but this is your dad we're talking about here. The man who raised you—or, at the very least, whose character flaws you'll probably inherit. It's your duty, as his child, to get an awesome Father's Day gift for dad.
But forget what to get for a moment, where do you even shop for a guy like him? You could go to Amazon for anything. You could figure out where he buys all his tech gadgets or outdoors gear or home products. Or! You could rely on us and our wonderful friends over at Bespoke Post—who, like Esquire, have a real deep understanding of what guys want. For the guys that have everything, the guys that want something no one else has, or just any ole dad, we know what they want. If you need some inspiration, check out this list of the 17 Gifts for Dad on Bespoke Post. It's our gift to you.
Portable Grill & Smoker
Perfect for a camping trip, tailgate, and any other occasion when his full-size grill is a bit overkill.
Edison Mini Lantern
It looks cool and old-timey, but this little lantern has LED bulbs and just runs off two AA batteries. It puts out enough light for a table top or tent, but he can hang a few around the fire pit for a proper setup.
Yukon 2.0 Pit & Stand
Speaking of fire pit, Bespoke Post carries the Solo Stove, makers of the best looking smokeless fire pits out there. The Yukon is the brand's biggest model, and it'll make the perfect centerpiece to dad's new outdoor space.
The XL Personal Concrete Fireplace
If he's short on space, how about a concrete fireplace? This thing adds a little bit of heat and a lot of visual interest.
This plus a bottle of his favorite bourbon, and you've got his favorite gift of the entire year.
If dad partakes, then this three-tier grinder is the classiest way to prep herb. It hardly looks like drug paraphernalia. So go ahead, leave it on the coffee table.
Big Apple Grinder
Or... get him one that's a little bit more fun. Still doesn't look like a grinder. Still looks good enough for the coffee table.
It's a cool-looking lighter none of his buddies will have. Plus, Woodchuck plants a tree for every unit sold. It's the perfect gift.
Portable Glass Lantern Speaker
Part lantern, part speaker—and it's great at both. Men over a certain age love this type of shit, so expect to see him showing it off to all his boys at the next barbecue.
Canvas Weekender Bag
The whole family likes to rip his airport style. How about you offer a solution: A good looking (and affordable) canvas duffel that comes in a handful of classic colors.
The Grill Dads Salt Trio
Pre-made blends are the performance enhancing drugs of the grill world, and with these three, he can level-up a whole lot of recipes.
Tokay Wireless Adventure Speaker
He loves his tunes. He loves his pool. Now, finally, he can enjoy them together, without worry of ruining valuable electronics.
SUV Tailgating Canopy
This one seems weird, but it's probably the most useful thing on this list. Campsite, Friday night football parking lot, or third-base line at the grandkid's peewee game, with this thing he can set up a solo tailgate with almost zero effort.
Mini Tactical Tomahawk Hatchet
Dad just might be a hatchet guy. Whether he's a hatchet guy who'll use it to do practical stuff like clear brush, or intense stuff like target practice, is up to personal preference. In either case, with this hatchet, he can do so stylishly.
Stash Case and Lighter Duo
On one end, there's a hollow cylinder that'll keep a cigar—or whatever else he's lighting up—safe. On the other end, there's a lighter.
The Upstate Candle Quad
A perfect grouping of candles for the dad with good taste. Ash & Fir pulls notes from places like forests and bourbon distilleries—you know, Peak Dad destinations.
Trova Go Biometric Stash Case
If dad's got security on his mind (and when doesn't he?), then this Bluetooth-enabled stash box fits the bill. He can open it via passcode or face scan, and he'll never tell you what's hidden within.
