Klein Tools | Screwdriver Set
I've been happily using this exact set for about a decade now. It's a classic. Sure, I've got a whole bunch of power tools, fancy ratcheting drivers, multi-tools with all the different attachments, etc. but I still reach for these screwdrivers all the time. Every dad needs a durable, traditional screwdriver set and this Klein set is a solid option. $69 at homedepot.com.
American Giant | Highway Shirt
Some of you have seen photos of me in Stargazer's social posts or emails, so I don't need to tell you how fashionable I am. Take my word for it. This is a good looking shirt and your dad will look good in it. American Giant clothing is fashionable, comfortable and built to last. $124 at american-giant.com.
EarthQuaker Devices | Erupter Fuzz Pedal
Does your dad play guitar? Maybe he has an electric guitar tucked away in the corner of his office because he said he was going to learn to play it like twenty years ago but never made it happen. He needs a fuzz pedal. Plug it in for instant Jimi Hendrix or Smashing Pumpkins (depending on your dad's age). Fine, probably not, but the couple chords he knows will sound awesome. $149 at reverb.com.
Bison | SoftPak Cooler Bag
Your dad probably already has a cooler but this one is better. It's lightweight and flexible, but durable. It's suited equally well to a day at the beach, camping in the mountains or just tailgating. Don't overthink it. $99 at bisoncoolers.com.
Harley-Davidson | 2021 Low Rider S
If you have like $20k burning a hole in your pocket, get your dad a Harley. I know when you ask him what he wants for Father's Day, he says something boring like, "I just want the love of my family." That's nonsense. My dad wants a Harley, your dad wants a Harley, all dads want a Harley. I personally own a Harley very similar to this one and it is my happy place. Help your dad find his happy place. $17,999 at harley-davidson.com.

JerkyGent | Craft Jerky Gift Box
I wouldn't be mad about a jerky gift box showing up at my house and neither will your dad. He probably thinks beef jerky is too expensive, so this is the perfect gift he'd never buy himself.

Belmont Peanuts | Best-Sellers 6-Pack Sampler
My husband picked up some of these nuts at a local store and insisted I try them because they were "SO GOOD" and he was right, they were pretty great.

Terrane Glass Co | No 12 Rocks Glass
Please excuse me as I'm officially drooling over this barware. Have you ever seen anything so...beautiful?! It's weird to call barware beautiful but, really, these pieces are showstoppers. Never mind the set you picked up at Marshalls, dad deserves better. $40 at terraneglass.com.
Stargazer Cast Iron | 10.5-Inch Skillet
Last, but certainly not least, is of course, a Stargazer skillet. If dad doesn't have one of these already it's officially time to upgrade his cast iron game. Even if he didn't ask for it, trust us, he wants one. $115 at stargazercastiron.com.
With options from $20 to $20,000 and everything in between, there's something for every dad on this list. If you're having a hard time deciding, we'd say go with the skillet.
