We all know how hard it can be to shop for dads. It doesn't help if every time you press him for hints, he says, "Oh, I don't need anything." But shopping for Father's Day doesn't have to be stressful. To help you out, we've scoured Amazon, which not only makes ordering easy but also offers a variety of gifts for just about any kind of dad. And right now, you can find some of these items on sale during Amazon's Memorial Day sale

Whether he wants to have a little fun, spend some time outdoors, or just chill on the couch with his favorite show, we're sure you'll find something here to make his day. Everything on this list is on Amazon and is available for free, on-time delivery if you have a Prime membership -- or you can sign up for a free Prime trial. For more Father's Day gift ideas, check out our roundups of gifts for DIY dads and personalized presents for Dad.


Not everyone wants a Stanley cup. For those who are looking for something that's a little more spill-proof, the Yeti Rambler is the way to go. It's on the pricey side, but it's seriously sturdy, fits nicely in a car's cup holder, and will keep beverages cold or hot for hours.

The New York Times

Does Dad start off every day with Wordle? Then chances are he's also playing other NYT games, like Connections, Strands and, of course, the Mini Crossword. The addiction is real. But this collection of Mini Crosswords will keep the word nerd action going...all day long.


The SodaStream Terra is a popular machine, and we especially like it for making sparkling water. But if you want a machine that'll make any sort of fizzy beverage you could possibly want -- think sparkling juice, sparkling cocktails, you name it -- go for the Drinkmate OmniFizz. You'll need to buy new carbon dioxide once the sample canister runs out, but you can use any screw-in carbon dioxide cylinder, not just Drinkmate's.


When it comes to reliable skin care products, Jack Black is a classic. This set comes with all you need to cleanse and pamper your skin, including a daily facial cleanser, an SPF 20 sunscreen, a minty lip balm and an energizing facial scrub. It works well for all skin types -- and it's perfect for traveling too.

If Dad likes to whip up elaborate meals, he could probably use a fancy chef's knife for all his chopping, mincing and slicing needs. Global's popular 8-inch chef's knife is CNET's top pick for the best chef's knife out there. CNET's David Watsky notes that this Japanese-style blade "boasts a scary-sharp edge and a nimble-feeling lightweight body." 

Is your dad a fan of camping or even just lounging around in the yard? He'll love this comfortable portable hammock. It comes with two 9-foot straps and two carabiners, so it's easy to set up pretty much anywhere. And it's light and compact -- perfect for tossing into a backpack.

If Dad needs to ease sore muscles after training or going to the gym, he'll appreciate the Theragun Mini. While the 1.5-pound Theragun Mini massager isn't as powerful as of one of Theragun's more expensive, full-size devices, it packs a surprisingly powerful punch. Designed to be portable, it easily fits in a backpack or gym bag, and the rechargeable battery is rated to last two-and-a-half hours.


Does Dad like outdoor games like cornhole or horseshoes? Believe us when we say that Molkky is way better -- and chances are he's never heard of it. This game is hugely popular in Europe, and it's great for all ages. You can set it up in your yard or take it to the beach or camping. Before you know it, everyone in your crew will be playing this highly addictive game.

The Apple Watch SE is a nice budget smartwatch that's responsive and has great fitness features too. It offers a lot of the same software-based features as its more-expensive siblings, including sleep monitoring, workout tracking, Apple Pay support and the ability to get iPhone notifications on your wrist. So not only can your dad track his workouts, but he can tackle basic social needs from his wrist too.

Read our Apple Watch SE review.

Craft A Brew

If your dad enjoys beer, he might also enjoy making a quality brew from scratch. This home brewing kit from Craft a Brew has everything he needs to make one gallon of beer. Choose from an IPA, American pale ale, hard cider, Hefeweizen and more. If he decides to dive further into brewing, he'll need to make some equipment upgrades, but this kit covers all the basics and is a great way to get started.


Grab this beverage cooler for your coffee-, wine- or beer-drinking dad for a quick cooldown of any warm drink. CNET's David Watsky reviewed the HyperChiller, and he was able to take a warm drink from 175 degrees to 59 degrees in just 2 minutes. So the next time your dad grabs a warm drink, hand him this for an upgraded experience.

Now that the weather is warming up, chances are Dad could use a new pair of flip-flops. Reef sandals comfortable, durable and stylish. And the bottle opener on the soles will win major points.


With far too many shows streaming online, what better way to manage it all than to use a Roku Streaming Stick? The 4K+ version of this stick has a simple setup so your dad can find streaming channels from Disney Plus to Netflix easily. There's even a built-in remote finder in case it goes missing. Plus, your dad can listen to the TV privately by connecting his headphone jack to the remote.


Do you have a dad who loves to host get-togethers and show off his charcuterie designs? Give him this affordable bamboo cheese board set. This isn't just any old board. It's designed to serve large portions of snacks and has special ridges for crackers around the entire edge of the board. It even has a hidden drawer for holding cheese knives, labeling slates, a wine opener and carrying bag.

For its first three generations, JBL's Clip micro Bluetooth speaker had a circular design. But with the fourth-gen Clip 4, JBL moved to a more oval shape, bulked up the speaker slightly and added USB-C charging. It does seem more durable, with a sturdier integrated carabiner "clip," which is great for clipping onto a backpack. With an IP67 water-resistance rating, it's not quite fully waterproof, but it's dust-proof.
