This year, Father’s Day is on Sunday, June 19 — and if you haven’t yet ordered a gift for dad, time is running out to make sure it arrives on time. But we’re here to make it easy for you. To help you find the best gifts for Dad, no matter what he’s into, we’ve put our best Father’s Day gift ideas — from a handsome portable radio to a Black-owned beard oil — all in one place. That includes gifts for outdoorsy dads, techie dads, even dads who say they don’t really want anything, honest. Right now, just about everything is expected to arrive by Father’s Day, but as the date gets closer, stock and shipping times will likely change, so if you see something you like, buy it now. We’ll also continue to update all of our guides and make note of any products that might arrive late, so be sure to bookmark this page for our latest gift ideas.
To save you the hassle, we’ve rooted through our archives to find gifts perfectly suited to absolutely every type of Dad.

We reached out to booksellers across the country and compiled a list of thoughtfully curated reads sure to delight many types of dad.

Staff writer Chris Mandle asked 11 stylish people about the gifts they’re buying their dads this year, so if your dad has a certain panache about him, you might find some inspiration.
