If there’s one thing we can all agree on about our fathers, it’s that they are notoriously hard to shop for. This may be why so many gift guides tend to recommend the same things over and over again. Not that there’s anything wrong with a nice tie, but if you’ve already gifted it once (or 10) times, it can be hard to break out of the pattern and do something different. We can all agree that our dads deserve something unique — and not something that’s going to end up forgotten in the back of a random drawer.

    Grilled Personal Pizza Maker

    A pizza oven can cost a pretty penny, but if Dad's already got a grill he loves, we've got the perfect workaround: a personal pizza grill. All he has to do is assemble a pizza of his choice, pop it inside this mini oven on the grill (just be sure he leaves the lid on), and in 10 minutes he'll have a delicious homemade pie he may even share with you.

    Parks Project Feel The Earth Tee

    My dad's a huge t-shirt guy, and a couple of years ago I started an unintentional tradition of gifting him a new shirt from Urban Outfitters Parks Projects collection each Father's Day — and he's begged me never to stop. Celebrating America's National Parks, every piece features a fun design as well as funds projects in National Parks, including vital wildlife conservation efforts, trail restorations, visitor education, and more. I call that a win-win.

  4. Dalwhinnie Distillers Edition 2020 Single Malt Scotch Whisky
    Dalwhinnie Distillers Edition 2020 Single Malt Scotch Whisky

    Dalwhinnie Distillers Edition 2020 Single Malt Scotch Whisky

    If your dad is a whisky fan, Kitchn senior commerce editor Ian has the perfect recommendation. "The Dalwhinnie 15 is one of my dad's favorite bottles, and the Distiller's Edition is just special enough to make it gifty. If you're not sure your pops is into scotch — or if you're not which what kind of scotch he likes, since there's a huge variety in flavor within the category — Dalwhinnie is a super-safe bet, as it's not overly peaty or abrasive, and lends itself to drinking both neat and in cocktails. Plus, it's a great introduction to the world of single malt and can serve as a starting point for many gifted bottles down the road. (Pro Tip: If Dad is more into the peatier stuff from Islay, I'd opt for a Caol Ila, if you can find it.)"
