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)

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

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 Tequila Lover

If dad loves tequila, this Casamigo's blanco tequila is about to be his new fave. Each batch is distilled for at least two months and has notes of citrus, sweet agave and vanilla. It's perfect as a chilled shot, but would also be delicious in a tequila sunrise. (Buy it: $55, Drizly)

For the Grill Guru

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

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

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)

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)
