28 Of The Best Father's Day Gifts Of 2019

1. A fill-in-the-blank book so you can tell your dad just how much you love him, one strong verb at a time. Just know there’s a HIGH chance of dad tears upon opening.

Promising review: "Dad LOVED it. I mean what do you give to someone who is turning 80? So, I gave it to him, and he read the whole thing while everyone else was chatting away. I could see his face, (a guy who rarely smiles) and saw his lips begin to curl. His eyes were fixed on the pages. every now and then he would smile and chuckle. I asked him if he liked it and he said with his Spanish accent, 'I'm gonna take it to my grave!' Deep." —Purring KittyGet it from Amazon for $8.58.

5. An old school game of Risk. I’ve never met a father who didn’t hold this weekend-eating game of world domination close to his heart.

This is the version of Risk that my family and I have and can confirm: it's dad-approved. My dad is the one who asked me to put a game of Risk in a Father's Day post in the first place! Hi, dad!Promising review: "This is the classic version of the game I grew up with — the design of the board, wooden armies, etc. I bought it as a gift and could not be more pleased with it. Playing it brought back a lot of memories and made me nostalgic for family game nights and late nights playing board games rather than watching endless televisions, iPhones, and iPads. I recommend it for every cabin in the woods, beach house, lake house, and anywhere you place a premium on relaxed human interaction. —fanofhistoryGet it from Amazon for $24.89 (originally $39.99).

6. A bottle of Mike’s Hot Honey he’ll want to put on literally everything from now until eternity. And if your dad’s name is actually Mike, it’s illegal for him NOT to own some, sorry it’s the law!

Promising Review: "Saw this on a Food Network show and decided to try! LOVE IT! Great honey taste with just a bit of heat at the end. My husband loves 'hot' foods and even grows his own peppers to put on anything. He really likes this on his French toast and I like it with peanut butter. However, I just made baked beans and added a tablespoon of Mike's Hot in addition to the brown sugar, and they were the BEST baked beans ever!" —RitakcGet it from Amazon for $8.06.

12. A Yeti Rambler mug that keeps coffee hot for a ridiculously long time by using double-wall vacuum insulation. Now pops can majestically stare into the distance while holding his coffee for as long as he wants, and it’ll still be hot when he snaps out of it.

Great price!" —Kelly StoneGet it from Amazon for $24.99 (available in nine colors).
