►Father's Day deals: The best Father's Day 2022 deals to shop right now
1. For the dad who listens to Spotify on the go: Sennheiser CX Plus True Wireless earbuds
Sennheiser is home to great audio equipment for solid prices, and if your dad is a huge fan of listening to music or podcasts, give them the gift of great sound with the CX Plus True Wireless earbuds. We tested the CX Plus earbuds and enjoyed features like long battery life and smart pause functionality. Of course the best part is their sound quality, which is among the best you can find at this price point.
2. For the dad who loves coffee: Keurig K-Elite Single Serve Coffee Maker
If the first thing the father you're shopping for does in the morning is make himself a cup of coffee, you might as well make sure he's brewing it from the best possible coffee machine. The Keurig K-Elite is one of the best single-serve coffee makers we tested, with several cool features like a button for brewing iced coffee, five different cup sizes and adjustable brew strength. Give him this and you're both in for a better morning.
3. For the dad who wants to fly: Potensic T25
Most high-quality drones will cost you $500 and up, which can be pricey if you aren’t sure if your dad will get a lot of use out of it. The Potensic T25 is our favorite drone under $200, making it an awesome way to practice flying (and crashing), without spending a ton of money. Despite the price, you’re still getting an included 1080p camera and smart features like hovering, decent battery life and a “Follow Me” mode.
4. For the dad who's a gamer: Oculus Quest 2
The Oculus is one of the hottest gifts to give or get right now, and if your giftee has been looking for new ways to explore new worlds or get out of their own head, the Oculus Quest 2 might be just the right move. The console comes with 128 GB of storage and the VR headset is equipped with an optimized display, capturing 50% more pixels than the original model.
5. For the sporty dad: lululemon gear
Maybe he loves playing sports or maybe he loves watching them. Regardless, the athlete in him will appreciate some lululemon gear this Father's Day. While there's plenty of apparel, shoes and accessories to shop from the beloved brand, you can't go wrong with a pair of lightweight joggers and a comfy hoodie.
6. For the dad on the go: Yeti Rambler Mug
While Yeti makes our all-time favorite cooler, he might just need a mug upgrade this year. Made of double vacuum-insulated stainless steel, the super popular Yeti mug is known for keeping coffee steaming hot (or water ice cold) for hours. It's a useful gift that will last for years to come. Yeti is offering free text and monogram customization from May 26—June 1, so don't miss out because Dad won't want to lose his favorite mug.
7. For the cool dad: Ray-Ban sunglasses
Do you have a cool dad? Or a dad who wants to look cool, anyway? If so, you can get him a pair of Ray-Ban's iconic Wayfarer sunglasses. The classic style features polarized lenses, full UV protection and they come in five neutral colors to match any of your dad's outfits.
8. For the dad who loves music: JBL Flip 5
Help dad fill a room with beautiful music that is so, so much nicer than what you get from basic smart speakers like the Amazon Echo. The JBL Flip 5 is the best value portable speaker we've ever tested, as it offered the best all-around performance with a waterproof exterior, excellent 12-hour battery life, and incredible, room-filling audio. This model comes in a massive range of colors too, and is compatible with USB-C quick charge.
9. For the meat-eating dad: Crowd Cow box
Steak, burgers, bacon, oh my! He can get all of the above—and plenty more—with a subscription to Crowd Cow. The delicious meat delivery service offers a vast selection of high-quality meat and seafood (all sustainably sourced from independent farmers) that he can pick and choose from each month. When we put this meat delivery service to the test, our tester found each cut to be great quality and deliciously juicy.
10. For the dad who likes to dress up: A linen suit
A linen suit is something every dad should own, and is a stylish looking for any special event, especially during the summer. Dad will feel comfortable and cool in a slim fit 100% linen suit from JoS. A. Bank, which allows him to select jacket and pant sizes separately for a perfect fit. Choose from tan, light blue or light grey for a sleek summer look. He'll definitely feel and look like the coolest dad on the block.
11. For the dad who values comfort: Bombas Socks
Never underestimate the value of a good pair of socks. Dad—and his feet—will be more than happy with these socks from Bombas, the top-rated brand known for its comfortable (and colorful) socks. The best part? For every pair purchased, another pair is donated to someone in need.
12. For the dad who has everything: AncestryDNA Kit
Is he really Prince William's long-lost second cousin? Probably not—but he can find out who he is related to, along with other fascinating genetic and family info, with a home DNA kit. AncestryDNA is one of the most well-known (and most popular) ones available because it's very detailed and easy to use: All he'll need to get started is a simple saliva sample.
13. For the swanky dad: TAG HEUER Chronograph Blue Dial Men's Watch
If he loves splashy gifts and you're ready to splurge, you can't go wrong with the ultra-luxe TAG HEUER Formula-1 Chronograph Watch. It comes in size 43mm and features a blue dial with a classic watch face. This watch is backed by eBay's Authenticity Guarantee program, so you can buy with confidence for Father's Day.
14. For the dad who wants to relax: Gravity Weighted Blanket
Cozy blankets have always been a great gift, but these days it's all about the weighted blanket. They're very popular right now not just because they're super comfortable, but they're also said to reduce stress and even help you fall asleep faster. We tried some of the top-rated weighted blankets and found that the Gravity Blanket provided just the right amount of pressure and feels extremely luxurious.
15. For the homebody dad: Ugg Slippers
Nobody wants to wake up and step onto a cold, hard floor—especially your dad. Slippers may seem like a mediocre gift, but these are not just any old slippers—these top-rated suede slippers are lined with the plush shearling that Ugg boots are so famous for, and they will keep his feet comfortable all day long. Actually, he might not ever take them off.
16. For the dad who wants to master new skills: MasterClass
A subscription to MasterClass is the perfect gift for a dad who loves to keep learning (or someone who just doesn't need any more stuff in their house). MasterClass is an e-learning platform in which famous people present a series of video lectures about their working methods. "David Lynch Teaches Creativity and Film" and "Annie Leibovitz Teaches Photography" are just a few. There's a staggering level of talent to be found within these virtual ivy walls. MasterClass's roster contains over 65 of the most high-achieving people in their respective industries.
17. For the sporty yet stylish dad: Allbirds Sneakers
Sneakers are having a major moment right now—so get him in on trend with a sleek pair that all the cool dads are wearing. Maybe that's Allbirds: washable wool sneakers that you see on every third person walking down the street (and that our editors are obsessed with!).
18. For the Netflix binge-watching dad: Roku Ultra
If you own a TV, you need a streaming box. The Roku Ultra, our top-rated streaming device, costs a lot less than an Apple TV device, but it’s easier to use and works with all the major streaming services. The best trick? This version of the Ultra has added the Apple TV app, so you'll have access to all your iTunes purchases.
19. For the dad who needs a new laptop: HP ENVY Convertible Laptop
If Dad needs a reliable, new laptop at an affordable price point, this one is perfect. The HP ENVY x360 Convertible Laptop is the best budget laptop we tested because of its premium performance, beautiful design and sturdy hinges. Dad will definitely send you a thoughtful "thank you" email from his new computer.
20. For the dad who prefers Android: Samsung Galaxy Watch 4
If the dad in your life insists that Android is better than Apple, treat him with the best Android smartwatch you can buy: Samsung’s Galaxy Watch 4. We loved this watch for its bright, vibrant display, solid fitness tracking, useful tile interface and relatively long battery life. It also won't set you back as much as an Apple Watch.
21. For the dad who likes to relax: Parachute Classic Bathrobe
He might not be at a five-star resort on a tropical island, but he can feel like he is with this luxe robe that is on everyone's wish list right now. Made of super soft Turkish cotton, it's so cozy that some happy customers even compare it to being wrapped up in a cloud.
22. For the dad who needs a massage: Theragun
Dad doesn't have to leave the house to get a spa-worthy massage—all he needs is the Theragun. One of our staff members put the handheld massager to the test and liked that it was powerful (perfect for kneading out knots) and could get to even the hardest-to-reach spots.
23. For the tech-savvy dad: Amazon Echo Dot
At Reviewed, we love voice-controlled smart speakers like the Amazon Echo, but the diminutive (and affordable) Echo Dot is a perfect way to bring that functionality to other rooms in your house. It's our top pick if you're a beginner looking for an entry-level Echo. I use mine in the kitchen, where it’s perfect for streaming music while I cook, setting timers, or entertaining my kids.
24. For the always prepared dad: Leatherman Wave Multitool
Even if he says he doesn’t need a multitool, most every dad wants one. The Leatherman Wave easily won our roundup of the best multitools. It looks great, offers impressive performance and comes with a 25-year warranty. 25 years! If you go this route, we also highly recommend picking up a pair of the best work gloves we’ve tested: Carharrt Men’s Grain Leather Work Gloves.
25. For the dad who loves pizza: A pizza oven
If the dad you're buying a gift for loves pizza (and really, who doesn't love pizza?)—then this is the gift that will really impress him. The Ooni-Karu Outdoor Pizza Oven is one of the best pizza ovens on Amazon and makes authentic, stone baked pizza in just 60 seconds! This outdoor, portable pizza oven can be fired up with wood or charcoal, or can be used with the Ooni Gas Burner attachment (sold separately) to cook with gas. Not craving pizza? The oven can also be used to cook steak, fish or veggies!

26. For the dad who's always ready for happy hour: GrowlerWerks uKeg
Beer tastes from a tap: If Dad agrees with this statement, get him the uKeg from GrowlerWerks. Made of vacuum-insulated stainless steel, the growler/keg combo has gotten a thumbs up from over 1,000 reviewers who say it keeps their beer ice cold and carbonated (you can even customize the carbonation level) all day long. And whenever he's ready for happy hour, Dad can use the tap dispenser to pour the perfect pint.
27. For the dad who always puts off cleaning: Eufy Robovac 11S
Robot vacuums can't do all the household chores for him, but they're great for keeping carpets and floors clean on days where there is just not enough time to do it all. He'll appreciate this one from Eufy, which is our favorite affordable robot vacuum. It picked up the most dirt per run in our testing and is incredibly quiet while it cleans.
28. For the movie aficionado dad: TCL 55-inch 6-Series QLED TV
Named the best value TV of 2022 by our TV experts, you can't go wrong with the TCL 6-Series. It has built-in Roku for easy streaming and offers quantum dot performance at an affordable price. If you have more money to spend, our top TV is the LG OLED.
29. For the perpetually late dad: Apple Watch Series 7
The Apple Watch Series 7 is the best smartwatch you can buy. It has a large, always-on display, tons of health and fitness tracking features and is quick to charge. It's a great Father's Day gift, especially for the dad who's constantly on the move and has a lot to juggle.
30. For the bearded dad: Hatteker RF-692 Beard Trimmer
Did your dad keep the beard he grew in 2020? If so, it might be time to gift him the Hatteker RF-692 Beard Trimmer, which won Best Value in our roundup of the best beard trimmers. It's sharp, offers a well-balanced cut and it is waterproof. It comes with six guide combs, along with an adjustable comb guard to help your dad achieve the perfect trim.
31. For the dad who enjoys craft cocktails: Casamigos cocktail mixers
So your dad admits to loving fruity cocktails and there is nothing wrong with that. In fact, there's the perfect gift for him to mix some delicious margaritas and cocktails using these fresh and flavorful cocktail mixers from Casamigos. The gift set includes a bottle Signature Margarita Mix, Blackberry Basil Smash, Salty Sweet Orange Cocktail Rimmer and Pink Himalayan Salt Rimmer. Add a bottle of the brand new flavor, Guava Ginger, and Dad will be sipping on refreshing cocktails all summer long, and he just might make one for you, too.
32. For the dad who likes to play bartender: Cocktail Shaker Set
Mixing the perfect cocktail isn't as easy as it looks—you have to have all the right tools to pour, strain, measure, muddle and most importantly (in my opinion), shake! So if Dad likes to play bartender at home, this cocktail shaker set is going to come in very handy. The 13-piece set is made of a durable stainless steel that won't bend or rust, comes in four colors and is great for professional bartenders and aspiring mixologists (A.K.A. your dad) alike!
33. For the gym rat dad: Herschel Supply Co. Outfitter Convertible Duffle Bag
Duffle bags just might be the most underrated piece in the bag family—but they shouldn't be, because they are incredibly versatile. This Herschel Supply Co. duffel looks good enough for any dad to bring into his office, but it’s functional enough to work as a daily gym bag, a carry-on for traveling, or for throwing in the trunk for a fun outing.
34. For the dad who loves his backyard: The Solo Stove Bonfire
Know a dad who loves spending time in his own backyard? We recommend the Solo Stove Bonfire, a fire pit he can easily assemble and enjoy at home. This product has a devoted following who praise its ease of use and quick-start capabilities. Since the pit is smokeless, Dad won’t have to worry about cleaning up a bunch of ash once the night is over.
35. For the dad who appreciates quality sound: Sony Noise Canceling Headphones
Dad loves listening to his favorite jams—but the rest of the family probably does not. That’s why he needs a pair of noise-canceling headphones like one of our favorite ones from Sony. We found them to be very comfortable and incredible at blocking noise. Plus, thanks to their customizable Headphones Connect app, he can EQ the sound to his own preference. They are comfy for long flights, train rides or just working at his desk.
36. For an athletic dad: Fitbit Charge 5
Whether you’re buying for a dad who's a hardcore athlete, or one just trying to get up off the couch more, the Fitbit Charge 5 is the way to go. It has an easy-to-navigate menu, activity tracking, a heart-rate monitor and sleep tracking, as well as one of the better apps of any other smart fitness tracking watch.
Buying for someone truly hardcore? The Garmin Forerunner 235 offers much better activity and heart rate tracking as well as GPS for tracking your runs.
37. For the sentimental dad: Aura digital frame
This is a gift any dad would truly love and appreciate, but if your dad is extra sentimental, this digital picture frame, that can be pre-loaded with all those fun and meaningful family memories and baby photos, is sure to make Dad shed a couple tears. The Aura Carver Luxe delivers stunning, full HD image quality and offers unlimited free storage—you could literally send over 10,000 pictures and videos from your phone to this digital picture frame! Just download the Aura app, set up the frame and have tissues ready.
38. For the dad who likes to cook: Philips Air fryer
Whether it’s game day or just a busy Wednesday, sometimes your dad just wants to make something quick, easy and delicious. Air fryers do a good job of providing crispy food without the mess or hassle of frying in oil. This Philips model won our roundup of the best air fryers, excelling in most of our testing.
Want something a little more adventurous? You could set Dad up with a gift card to Home Chef, which won our roundup of the best meal kit delivery services, giving him tasty ready-to-make meals a few times a week.
39. For the avid reading dad: Amazon Kindle Paperwhite
Amazon has finally updated its best all-around Kindle with more storage, a more even backlight, a lighter and thinner design and waterproofing. The Kindle Paperwhite was already the no-brainer choice for anyone who wants the best Kindle you can buy, and the newest updates just cement that reputation.
40. For the dapper dad: Kenra hair wax
Does you dad spend a lot of time in front of the mirror, making sure every hair on his head is in place? If so, this is the hair wax for him. Kenra's Platinum Working Wax achieves a medium, flexible hold for texture and definition, without feeling stiff. Made with a matte finish, this incredible hair wax will not leave Dad's hair (or what he has left of it), looking or feeling greasy, either.
41. For the pit master dad: Cuisinart Grill Set
There's something about the bond between a man and his grill that can't be matched. So you can't go wrong with a barbecue-themed gift like this highly-rated 20-piece set of grilling tools. People like that it has everything you could ever need for a backyard BBQ (from spatulas to tongs to skewers to even corn cob holders) and that the tools are made of high-quality, durable stainless steel.
42. For the dad who loses everything: Tile Mate
If his favorite phrase is "Has anyone seen my keys?!" then he will definitely benefit from a Tile Mate. The number one item finder on Amazon, the Bluetooth tracker clips right onto his key ring and can locate items over 250 feet away. Users praise its long battery life and the loud volume of the ringer—so there's no chance those keys are going to get away from him next time!
43. For dad who loves hot sauce: The Good Hurt Fuego Hot Sauce Sampler Pack
With seven different flavors of hot sauce and a clever packaging design, this sampler pack from Thoughtfully is a standout gift idea for any dad who likes to add some extra flavor and spice to his food. The spices range from mild like Garlic Herb, to extremely hot like the infamous Ghost Pepper. Remind your dad that just a dab of that will do!
44. For the whiskey drinking dad: A decanter set
Whiskey just hits different when it's poured from a vintage-style decanter instead of the bottle—and he knows that, so he'll be excited to break out this gift the next time he has his buddies over for a glass of scotch, bourbon, whiskey or all three. The handcrafted glass is as sturdy and durable as it is luxe and distinguished, and the decanter set comes complete with four glasses.
45. For the yogi dad: lululemon Yoga Mat
Maybe he's a regular at hot yoga or maybe he wants to start stretching more. No matter his level of down dog, he'll love our experts' number one yoga mat from lululemon. It provides just the right amount of cushioning and has a non-slip surface that is perfect for even the sweatiest of workouts.
46. For the dad who needs a new wallet: Mark & Graham Personalized Leather Wallet
Upgrade his old worn-out wallet with this nice leather wallet from Mark & Graham. The minimalist design has a durable magnetic clip on one side, comes in four color choice and is the perfect size for holding all his cards and cash without being too bulky. Bonus: You can even get it personalized with his monogram.
47. For the practical dad: Davek Umbrella
An umbrella may not seem like the most exciting gift but the Davek Solo isn't your average umbrella. It's the fanciest one we've ever tested, but it's well worth the splurge. It will keep him dry in a downpour (and will hold up well on windy days, too) and is made with quick-drying, durable fabric that will last for years to come.
48. For the dad who likes keeping an eye on the house: Arlo Pro 3
For a dad who likes to know who's coming and going at his home, a wireless camera to keep an eye on things is a great gift. The Arlo Pro 3 security camera is a great home security camera. It’s easy to use, comes with local storage, works indoors and out and is compatible with Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant.
49. For the dad who's an aspiring chef: Henckels Zwilling Pro 8-Inch Chef’s Knife
Ask any chef or serious cook: an 8-inch Chef’s Knife is a must-have. This Henckels model won our roundup of the best chef’s knives, easily slicing through the competition in our testing. If you want something to go with it, I personally love the $50 Epicurean Gourmet Series cutting board, which is beautiful, functional, excelled in our testing and is even dishwasher-safe.
50. For the dad who's always on his phone: Morphie Powerstation PD
Let's be real: No dad has time for a dead phone. Keep his device fully charged with our experts' top portable charger, the Mophie Powerstation PD. Not only does its slim design make it easy to tote around on the go, but it can also charge two devices at once so he can power up his iPhone and his tablet at the same time.
