14 Perfect Father’s Day Gifts

Thank you dads, for teaching us to skip rocks, ride bikes, and execute perfectly timed “pull my finger” jokes. We remember every time you got up with us on Saturday mornings and napped with us on Saturday afternoons. Father’s Day isn’t the only day we notice every good thing you do.

  • Kindle


    Kindle is a wireless book-reading device. He can buy a book, a copy of his favorite newspaper or magazine (including international editions), and have it delivered to his Kindle in minutes. He can also access over 300 big-name blogs without paying for wifi, or hotel hotspot service fees, because Kindle uses cell phone networks to connect. Best of all, there are no cables, and it takes up about as much carry on room as a notebook.

    You always were his favorite kid.

  • World’s Lightest Carry-On


    You know how your dad really likes to “pack light?” Remember how he sawed off the handle of his toothbrush? This carry on weighs just 5.5 pounds, so now maybe he’ll pack more than one pair of underwear when he travels.

  • Tivoli Model One


    The other day my husband came home with a very cool-looking vintage radio, but it plays only the AM stations. Badly. I prefer the faux vintage version that only makes you listen to sermons and conspiracy theories when you feel like it.

    Here’s a similar version that works as an alarm clock.

  • Coat Caddy


    He doesn’t wear a suit every day, but when he does? It makes him crazy when it gets wrinkled on the way to a wedding.

    Don’t even get him started on how binding a winter coat can be when he’s trying to navigate the Autobahn.

  • 11 In One Credit Card Tool


    Perhaps he’ll pull this card out of his wallet to breaking the window of a sinking car. Or, maybe he’ll save the day with a bottle opener. Everyone has a different definition of “emergency”.

    $4 at Amazon | Buy

  • Perfect Ice Cube Tray


    When we finally got an ice maker in our freezer, I thought our days of filling ice cube trays would be over.

    Then my husband found these silicone trays that make the most perfect ice cubes in all the land. They pop out of the tray in perfect squares, take a long time to melt in your cocktail or soda, and look cool in your glass.

    Back to arguing about who forgot to refill the trays.

    $10 at Sur La Table | Buy

    (For a set of two.)
