How do you celebrate the dad who gave you the world without a second glance but tells you that he does not want or need anything in return? You ignore his claims and bookmark this article to use as your compass for all future father-related shopping endeavors, of course!

Forget the ties, the golf balls, the novelty socks. The best gifts for Father's Day are all about Dad's passions — including his passion for food, wine and watching the game on TV. Whether the dad in your life loves to grill, is a camping extraordinaire, brews his own beer, or just wants to eat, we’ve got the best gifts for Father’s Day.

And, if you’re shopping for a food-obsessed home chef who loves nothing more than experimenting with fresh flavors and fancy gadgets in the kitchen or hunting for a gift to give your resident Grill-Miester, frequent flyer or sommelier, we have you covered there, too. Below, we’re sharing 58 thoughtful Father’s Day gift ideas to shower every kind of dad with the love they deserve.

If He's a Master Griller

Celebrate your favorite guy’s passion for grilling with new gear guaranteed to uplevel his eats. A waxed canvas and leather grilling apron complete with an embroidered monogram is a foolproof gift your Grill-Meister will wear for years. Our advice? Pair it with a monogrammed forged steak brand to continue the personalized theme. Other top contenders for your grill-loving Dad include a cookout caddy, a curated spice collection or an updated BBQ tool set and wood box ideal for grilling on the go.

If He's a Sports Fanatic

Whether he talks your ear off about how his team (almost) won the National Championship thirty years ago, or he enjoys season tickets to watch his team attempt a comeback (from his armchair) every year — these gifts will earn you a win in your sports fanatic dad’s heart. Bring the ballpark to his man cave with a team-inspired candle like the Yankee Stadium scent from Homesick. This thoughtful blend wraps the room with notes of suede leather, cereal, vanilla, cedarwood and marbled rye. Other ideas? An heirloom leather-bound book with every article ever written about his team in the New York Times, a personalized golf set, a sports history subscription by mail or an NFL Whiskey Glass Oak gift set sporting his team’s emblem.

If He Loves to Cook

Looking to give a gift that keeps giving for the father that counts down the hours until he can throw on his apron and get to work experimenting in the kitchen? Spoil your household chef with gear to take his culinary craft to the next level. The GreenPan Stanley Tucci Essential Stanley Pan is a handsome upgrade to his trusty old pan (emphasis on old), and he’ll reach for this non-stick beauty to create mouthwatering meals every day. Splurge on a top-quality cold-pressed olive oil, an air fryer, a pizza oven or a Le Creuset Signature Enameled Cast Iron Dutch Oven. Or, give him the gift of inspiration with a cookbook tailored to his tastes, like The Meat Cookbook.

If He's a Cocktail Connoisseur

Leave your dad buzzing with delight with a Father’s Day gift that speaks to his love of craft cocktails. Stock his bar cart with dapper decanters, foil-embossed leather-wrapped old-fashioned glasses and some artisanal mixers. Or, bring the heat to the holiday gift exchange with this standout number: the Crafthouse by Fortessa Cocktail Smoking Cloche. This gadget will earn you major points for its ability to elevate any libation in his nightcap rotation. Bonus: The cloche looks chic while displayed on his bar between uses.

If He's Into Baking

If you’re searching for a sweet gift for the dad who never misses the chance to bring over brag-worthy baked goods, we’ve got you covered. When money is no object (read: you’re splitting the bill with siblings) a Kitchenaid Artisan Stand Mixer will never disappoint. But you don’t have to splurge to spoil your avid baker. Restock his spice cabinet with the Baker’s Deluxe Collection, add a non-stick ceramic pan to his arsenal or give him a new baking fixation to obsess on this summer with A DIY Sourdough Bread Kit.

If He Likes Wine

Trust us: the only gift better than these vino-inspired presents would be a round-trip ticket to Italy to split a bottle of Chianti alongside the grapes. If that’s out of the question, these finds will leave your family’s self-appointed sommelier buzzing with excitement. The Vinglacé Wine Bottle Chiller set is a must-have for the dad who looks forward to sipping an expertly chilled Sauvignon Blanc on a steamy summer day while the Aervana Original Electric Wine Aerator will enhance the notes of his favorite cabernet. And, if he loves nothing more than taking his reds, whites and rosés on the go for picnics or beach days, the portable picnic table and waxed canvas tote make an especially winning duo.

If He Loves to Travel

Equip your dad with inspiration for his next adventure and elevated essentials to help him along the way. Keep him comfy on long-haul flights with the ergonomic Ostrich neck pillow and provide him with bucket list destination ideas with a luxury coffee table inspired by 007 himself. A vegan leather passport cover and genuine leather garment bag make a handsome set and may or may not give you an excuse to toss his tattered, 20-year-old duffle bag once and for all. And, our favorite idea for the travel-loving dad in your life? A custom hardcover photo book that allows him to relive his best excursions over and over again with just the turn of a page.
