41 of the best gifts for dads, even if he’s impossible to shop for

Finding the best gifts for dads is a notoriously hard task. Whether it’s his birthdayFather’s Day, or the festive season, it always seems like a last-minute scramble to find something special. But fret not — we’ve pulled together a curated edit of gift ideas for dads that is guaranteed to make him feel loved. Whatever the occasion.

Your stepdad, grandad, dad or father-figure may have been there with you since the day you were born, serving words of wisdom, backseat driving instructions and an endless supply of dad jokes. Chances are he already has everything he wants, and will probably insist that you don’t need to get him anything. How very unhelpful.

So, what are the best gifts for dads that show him he’s the best dad in the world? From utensils that feel fitting for the BBQ king to massage guns for the fitness-loving dad, wine subscriptions for the vino connoisseur and deluxe hampers for a long-distance father, our edit will help you out.
