Father's Day (June 18) is inching closer, and we all know that the fastest way to Dad's heart is through his belly. So if you're on the hunt for a gift that will really show him how awesome you think he is, a gift basket is an excellent choice. You'll find plenty of tasty selections on this list, from extravagant options such as a decadent lobster meal to standard father favorites like beer, chocolate and steak. 

If you aren't into edible deliveries, order up a fitness crate or send a box packed with stylish clothing. There's even a starter veggie garden that'll ship right to Dad. Luckily, it's possible to find baskets that cater to all types of interests, so whether Dad is a foodie, a wine lover or a workout junkie, you're sure to find something he'll love. To help you out, we've rounded up a list of the best Father's Day gift baskets for every type of dad. Check out our list and solidify your position as Dad's favorite kid on Father's Day.

If your Dad enjoys weekend getaways, you can't go wrong with this gift box from Zingerman's. Inside you'll find an assortment of sweet and salty snacks perfect for enjoying on the go, including a block of cheddar from Chabot's Creamery, a fresh loaf of farm bread, salami sticks, peanut brittle, coffee cake and more. It's pretty much everything he needs to take on his next road trip, and it's easy to freeze anything that doesn't get used right away.

If your dad is serious about his fitness goals, consider getting him a gift box packed with everything he needs to stay motivated. Choose from The Runner Box or The Rider Box (both $38). The selection of items changes every month, but each box includes snacks and gear meant to help folks refuel after a long run or bike ride, including protein bars, energy bites, electrolyte hydration mix and more.

When it comes to presentation, Williams Sonoma never disappoints -- and this Best of Beehive picnic hamper is no exception. Inside the wicker basket, you'll find Rustic Bakery's artisan crackers, Creminelli salami, Italian plum spread, and a variety of cheeses from family-owned Beehive Creamery, including Cajun, smoked apple walnut, Barely Buzzed cheese and more.

A charming tin packed with delicious popcorn makes a great gift for the Dad who loves to snack while watching his favorite flick. This 3.5-gallon tin comes with The Popcorn Factory's three greatest hits: classic butter, crunchy caramel and cheesy popcorn. And if you really wanted to impress your movie-loving dad, you could pair it with one of our picks for the best streaming services to give as gifts.

Cousins Maine Lobster is known for its fantastic seafood, but it also does a mean Surf & Turf combo. Get Dad two tenderloin filets, two lobster tails, a lobster bisque shipped frozen and ready to cook, along with a four-pack of chocolate whoopie pies. "The shipping was flawless, and everything was delicious!" raves one happy customer.

Knack gift boxes are unique because you build them with only the products that you want, and prices vary depending on the items (and how many) you choose. Then Knack boxes it all up and sends it off. Options for The Grill Master box include cedar grilling planks ($15), mesquite smoking chips ($5), barbecue sauce ($10) and more. A custom note completes the thoughtful gift box.

Watch Dad's tastebuds light up as he crafts a tall tower of delicious BBQ Trash Can Nachos. Everything he needs to make Guy Fieri-inspired comfort food is included in this handy package, plus a mix to make two Caliente Margaritas (alcohol is the only thing missing). Choose from black bean, brisket or pulled pork nachos.

If the dad on your list is into wine, this convenient gift box is loads of fun. Vinebox has curated a collection of six European wines -- bold reds and crisp whites -- with trivia questions, so Dad can have the ultimate at-home tasting. After he's tried out each 100-milliliter serving, he can check out Vinebox's virtual tasting videos to see how he scored on the trivia questions.

You might need Dad to share a little if you gift him Compartes' chocolate gift tower. There's plenty to share: Each tower contains a 20-piece gift box of luxurious chocolates and two premium chocolate bars. You also get a small gift box of chocolate-dipped assorted sweets like apricots, Oreos, fruits, turtles and marshmallows. (Each tower may vary a bit depending on stock.) These luxury sweets are handmade in Los Angeles.

Maybe a cleanser or face moisturizer aren't things that Dad would normally buy for himself, which is why this Kiehl's set makes a great gift. Six of the brand's top-selling products are packed up in this bundle: Ultra Facial Cleanser, Calendula Herbal Extract Toner, Rare Earth Deep Pore Cleansing Masque, Midnight Recovery Concentrate, Ultra Facial Cream and Avocado Eye Cream. 

Give Dad a hearty snack session with a Microbrew Beer Bucket from Gourmet Gift Baskets. He'll get six bottles of beer including Smuttynose Old Brown Dog, Fat Tire and Brown Ale by Shed Mountain. Plus beef jerky, popcorn and a variety of nuts are tucked in there for maximum enjoyment. What's not to love? 

Get Dad's garden started with a Leaf'd kit. You can get this veggie kit as a quarterly subscription or as a one-time surprise box. It includes 10 starter plants in the box, so Dad will be all set to garden. There are cucumbers, peppers, squash and tomatoes all ready to plant, and video lessons and activities are also provided to ensure growing success. Bonus: A portion of each kit is donated to the OnetoOne program, which provides clean water to people in need.

Steak lovers will go nuts for this gift box from Vermont Wagyu. Included are two large NY Strip Steaks and one large Chuck Eye, shipped frozen in vacuum-sealed packages. A satisfied customer posts, "The Vermont Wagyu steaks were some of the best I have tasted. Seared at 600 degrees and served very rare." Cook these babies up for the Father's Day dinner of Dad's dreams.

Some dads find clothes shopping a chore. Take this chore off his plate for Father's Day with a Revtown Men's Crate Bundle full of fashion. He'll get two jeans, two shirts and a t-shirt, all for under $300. Choose from a variety of washes, styles and sizes and get custom staples just for Dad.
