So your dad’s impossible to shop for. So what? If one thing’s for sure, it’s that a guy’s gotta eat. For those who can’t imagine a Father’s Day gift that’s not a version of something Dad already has, let us present a selection of our most scrumptious, uncommon foodstuffs, from irresistibly tangy condiments to cocktail kits that’ll have him feeling like a real bartender. Check ’em all out below. (Sorry if we make you hungry, but some things can’t be helped.)
Your dad is one of a kind. From his funny stories (sure, you’ve heard ’em before, but you love hearing ’em again), to his funny jokes, to his ability to always know exactly when you need some fatherly advice, he’s a pretty special fella. We’re here to help you make your papa feel even more special on June 17 with a selection of unique Father’s Day gifts that you can only get at UncommonGoods.
Got a pops who loves his hops? This set of pint glasses celebrates the ingredients that make beer great with Alyson Thomas’ clever illustrated diagrams.
Maybe a touch of absinthe is Dad’s drink of choice? This set comes with everything that would have been included in a 19th-century absinthe service for one. (Except that enchanting green spirit. Throw in a bottle of his favorite brand and he’ll surely raise a glass to you on Father’s Day.)
Are Dad’s favorite pastimes baseball and snacking? This clever tray and dish combo makes it easy for him to nosh while he watches.
So your dad’s the kind of guy who doesn’t love it when you spend money on lavish Father’s Day surprises for him. He really believes it’s the thought that counts and would be perfectly happy with the gift of a pair of tube socks or a value pack of batteries—ya know, something he can really use. While we understand Dad’s devotion to utilitarian gifts, we think there are plenty of creative ways to compromise. This collection of thoughtful-yet-useful gifts will help you find something that makes you feel great about gifting while, more importantly, giving Pops a practical gift he’ll want to try out right away.
So maybe a water bottle that looks nice isn’t on the top of your practical dad’s gift list. But one that’s made of super durable borosilicate glass, easily attaches to his bike or bag, and comes with an app that tells him the closest places to refill it for free probably is. The nice-looking part is just a bonus.
Dilemma: Dad loves strong coffee but hates cleaning up. Solution: This press lets him make French press-style brew without the residual sludge.

For the pop that’s always outside, we’ve assembled 13 little somethings to enrich the experience this Father’s Day, from hammocks to handheld tools that keep the grill extra clean. Read on for more.
