The dad in your life probably doesn’t need (or want) another tie. These 10 creative and unique Father’s Day gifts will help you think outside the box this year. Whether the dad in your life is a grill master, Star Wars lover or whiskey connoisseur, we’ve got the perfect gift for him. Happy shopping!

For the Tech Lover

Williams Sonoma

This Meater wireless smart thermometer with Bluetooth lets Dad walk up to 165 feet away from the grill—then pings him via the Meater app when his steak is perfectly cooked. ($99, Williams Sonoma)

For the Beer Drinker


This Hopper M30 soft cooler is massive (it holds 20 cans of beer) and keeps food and drinks frosty all day thanks to Yeti’s famed closed-cell foam insulation. It has a magnetic, leakproof closure that’s easier to use than earlier models (no snagged zipper here) and is way less cumbersome to tote than its boxy plastic counterparts. ($300, Orvis)

For the Creative Cook

Burlap and Barrel

EatingWell worked with Burlap and Barrel to put together this special collection of nine novel and versatile spices—including Cobanero chili flakes, ground black lime and flowering hyssop thyme—to treat foodie dads Use on everything from meat and veggies to popcorn. We also like that this company purchases its spices for a fair price directly from farmers who use environmentally friendly practices. ($74, Burlap and Barrel)

For the Whiskey Lover


These hand-blown whiskey glasses feature raised topographic models of mountains like Half Dome, Denali and Mount Everest—so, you know, he can sip his drink on the rocks. (Set of 4 for $65, Huckberry)

For the Grill Guru

Williams Sonoma

This perforated grill pan prevents veggies from falling through the cracks. And Dad will appreciate that it has a lower profile to fit most sizes and types of grills. It’s also heavy-duty enough to be used on an open campfire. ($40, Williams Sonoma)

For the Jedi Master

Williams Sonoma

For use by fathers and Wookiees, this thin, flexible spatula is great for getting under pancakes, eggs or cookies and the nylon head won’t scratch pans. Plus, how could he not smile every time he uses it? ($17, Williams Sonoma)

For the Clean Shaver

Neiman Marcus

Help dad’s face stay smooth and baby-soft with this sleek shaving set. We promise, after he tries this, he’ll never touch a drugstore razor again. (Neiman Marcus, $95)

For the Home Cook

Sur La Table

This chef’s knife from Wusthof is a game-changer if your dad loves to cook. Best part? It’s on sale for almost a third of its usual price. ($53, Sur La Table)

For the Caffeine Addict


Dad can make espresso, lattes, iced drinks and more with this Nespresso machine. The aeroccino milk frother allows him to make hot or iced drinks with a touch of a button (and in less than a minute!).  ($199, Saks)

For the Gardener


Does your dad love getting his hands dirty in the backyard? Treat him to a luxe leather set of gardening gloves. This set is 16.5” long, so they’ll protect dad’s arms from thorns, brambles and twigs. ($98, Terrain)
