Dads are teachers, protectors, helpers, cheerleaders, coaches, providers—and often, notoriously hard to shop for. With Father’s Day right around the corner on June 18th, what do you get for the dad who does everything, and sometimes has everything?
These 10 ideas are ideal for saying “thanks” to fathers and father figures alike this year. And the best part? Some you can enjoy right alongside him.
Albergo™ Clock Radio with Bluetooth from Tivoli Audio
A father who does everything deserves a gift that does the same. Make his life easier with a design that combines four things in one: Tivoli Audio’s Albergo Clock Radio combines an alarm clock, an AM/FM radio, a bluetooth speaker and a digital clock.
Dartboard from Fredericks & Mae
We have no doubt that a game of darts with Dad can accompany a great conversation—and a little friendly competition. This vibrantly colored dartboard actually doesn’t have any numbers, so keeping score is optional. To complete the set, use the Black Dart Set, which perfectly complements the colors of the dartboard.

For the dad that is a beer connoisseur, a pair of these stunning beer glasses is the perfect gift. The Tank Beer Glasses by Tom Dixon are a sophisticated, elevated version of the classic beer glass and will keep your dad enjoying his favorite brew (or any beverage, really) in serious style.
Man Ray Chess Pieces from IC Design Group
These whimsically designed Man Ray Chess Pieces by IC Design Group will refresh a tired chessboard. This set was designed by the famous artist Man Ray, who was known for his pure, honest forms. He created each piece to represent a different historic artifact. Whether your dad is a history buff or simply an avid chess player, these will serve as a great conversation starter at his next game.
You and Me Ping Pong Table from RS Barcelona
When your dad is hard to shop for, a great gift idea is one that you can use together. The You and Me Ping Pong Table can be used in a mancave, outdoors on a patio, or even in the living room—the net, balls, and paddles can be stored away in a side compartment to transform this game table into a regular one for dining or work.
Tank Whiskey Decanter from Tom Dixon
This ultra-sleek decanter will make your dad’s bar or bar cart the envy of all his friends. The smart design of a slender stem and a flared mouth make serving whiskey from this stunning decanter easy to control for a perfect pour every time.
Icon™ Whisky Stones®: Father’s Day from Teroforma
Help your dad never forget which glass is his. Designed to keep dad’s drink cold without watering it down like ice will, these stones also add personality to his drink by spelling out that all-important three-letter word. Pair these Whisky Stones from Teroforma with the whiskey decanter for the perfect Father’s Day gift.
Cog Keyring Loop from Tom Dixon
Your dad may be superman, but even superman loses his keys every now and then. This solid brass keychain is the perfect way for dad to keep all his keys together while still being small enough to fit in a pants pocket or attached to a belt loop.
Golfball Indoor / Outdoor Lamp from Smart & Green
Golf and dads go together like pools and summertime, which is why we love this oversized golf ball that doubles as an outdoor lamp. It’s a great gift for the avid golfer or golf fan to enjoy some of his favorite sport even when he’s not on the course.
