Father’s Day is just around the corner. If you’re still looking for a gift that won’t drain your bank account, we’ve compiled a list of products for every type of dad, whether they’re into bourbon-infused soaps, the history of space travel, or just want to keep their beard a bit more lush. Check them out below.
1. Amazon Fire Stick and Voice Remote; $40

With Amazon’s Fire TV stick, your dad just has to simply plug it into his TV’s HDMI port and download his favorite streaming apps, and the stick will then basically turn his HD TV into a smart TV without needing to buy a whole new set. The included universal remote works in tandem with the stick to make it easier to navigate through channels and search for specific programs. With this tool, your dad won’t have to lift a finger to search for his favorite shows—he can simply say, “Alexa, play Bosch” to be taken directly to the right channel. (We don’t need to know your dad to know he loves Bosch.)

2. Dash Waffle Maker; $26

To really make your dad’s morning on Father’s Day, use this waffle maker to whip up a few Belgian waffles for breakfast. Then watch him get excited when he learns he can make his own gourmet-quality brunches in minutes. Batter up!

3. Stanley Never-Flat Stein; $31

While this 24-ounce stein from Stanley looks like it fits right in at a German beer hall, there’s a lot more going on under the hood than a typical mug. Its double-wall insulation and latching lid keeps drinks colder for longer (around nine hours), while helping to retain that oh-so-necessary carbonation.

4. Death Wish Coffee; $36

Help your dad power through any morning—even the first one after a three-day weekend—with an extra kick of caffeine, courtesy of Death Wish Coffee. This powerful dark roast boasts double the caffeine of a typical cup of coffee, and it’s paired in this two-pack with the Odinforce Blend, which is another dark roast aimed at people who simply won’t stand for weakness in their coffee (or their coffee’s packaging).

5. Give Back to Nature Candles; $24

A portion of the sales from each of these candles goes to supporting charitable organizations involved with environmental preservation, so your dad can appreciate this ethical purchase while also enjoying the earthy scents of teak wood and eucalyptus, citrus groves, or apples and maple. This gift is for any father who loves the outdoors and wants to bring a bit of nature inside the house.

7. 5-in-1 Tool Pen; $25

Surprise your dad with this pen that can do (almost) everything. This ballpoint includes a built-in 3-inch ruler, a bubble level, a screwdriver, and a stylus for touchscreen devices. But if your dad would rather wear his tools than carry them around in a pocket, you could instead consider this utility bracelet, which includes a knife and a flat head screwdriver and sells for $40 on Uncommon Goods.

8. Duke Cannon soap set; $20

If you’ve got one of those dads who thinks leather and tobacco is the ideal scent pairing for a living room candle, then he’s the exact market Duke Cannon is after. This “Bourbon and Beer” set features soaps made with actual Buffalo Trace bourbon and Old Milwaukee beer, meaning every wash will come complete with whiffs of oak barrels and sandalwood. And at a hefty 10 ounces per bar, these bricks of soap should keep him smelling like a distillery all summer long.

9. The Ultimate Book of Trivia; $20

Here at Mental Floss, we’re pretty big fans of trivia—and we bet your dad will be, too. This 352-page book contains more than 1000 tidbits that he’ll love spouting at parties and family dinners. Reigning Jeopardy! champion (and Mental Floss contributor) Ken Jennings’s trivia almanac of more than 8800 unusual facts is also a good choice for trivia lovers.

10. Teas of the Boston Tea Party; $35

Each of the five teas included in this kit were among the varieties that early American colonists dumped into the Boston Harbor back in December 1773, and it’s perfect for the history buff who enjoys the sweet, sweet taste of rebellion stirred in with their tea.

11. A History of Space Travel Cards; $14

This deck of cards isn’t just a dependable time-waster in a pinch; it’s decorated with illustrations that celebrate the planet’s history of space travel, from the 1950s space race to the days of the ISS. Featuring the different ships, satellites, and space suits that have paved the way for where we are today, this deck is a great collectible for any dad who’s had his neck craned up to the stars since childhood. For patient fathers, there’s also a 500-piece History of Space Travel puzzle for $14 that will ship within one to two months.
