A pair of authentic Sperry boat shoes for the dad who likes to dress-up those cargo shorts he loves so much.

A set of Bowflex adjustable weights for the dad who has an hour break during the day to get in his workout.

This relaxation-inducing device has three different speeds and interchangeable heads.

Promising review: "I had some neck pain and my physical therapist used this product on me and I bought one for home. It's amazing. Lightweight enough to not be sore from holding it and the angle works perfectly on pretty much every muscle group. Light enough to carry and travel with. It is very quiet and the three settings are more than sufficient. Worth the price for sure! I’m very satisfied with this product and very glad I ended up choosing this over the Theragun. I went to the store to check out the Theragun and much prefer the Hyperbolt!" —Helena

Shipping info: Available on Amazon Prime with next-day shipping, non-Prime shipping options will still arrive by Father's Day (see Amazon's full shipping information here).

Get it from Amazon for $129.

To me, these are such a smart purchase. You literally buy these, and then, there's no need for a gym membership. It comes with a video-on-demand component, so you have your workouts pre-planned. They're perfect for the dad who has a short amount of time during the day — or night — and wants to workout.

Promising review: "I have been extremely impressed with their versatility and convenience. These dumbbells are perfect for anyone who wants to get an upper-body workout at home without taking up a lot of space. The adjustable weight feature is very convenient, as it allows me to quickly and easily change the weight of the dumbbells to suit my needs. The weight range of 5–52.5 pounds is perfect for a variety of exercises, from lighter-weight lifting to heavier compound movements. The build quality of these dumbbells is also very impressive. They feel solid and well-made, with a durable construction that has held up well against regular use. The grip is comfortable and provides a good amount of traction, which is important for preventing slips and accidents during exercise. The base is plastic though (seems pretty durable so far) and you cannot change the weight dials without them being on the base." —Amazon Customer

So I've recently become a pillow/bedding snob. I think it comes with age. Anyway, this pillow — y'all. This pillow, along with the Purple Harmony pillow, is the best pillow I have ever had. It's adjustable, so you can basically make it the optimal comfort level for you. I will bring this pillow with me every time I travel now.

Promising review: "I took out one big handful of the foam pieces, and it's perfect. It's sooo soft, and NOT HOT. I'm an all-over sleeper: side, back, stomach. I sent back a feather pillow because it was hot and hard. This one has a zipper so you can customize your pillow. They give you a bag of extra foam so you can fluff up more or unzip and take some out to make it perfect. I bought these for my kids, too. One added all the extra foam, one added a handful." —SJ

These shorts, in my opinion, are better than Lululemon shorts. And I've always bought Lulu. But they're just better. They look better, feel better, and are nine inches, so your dad will wanna wear them.

Promising review: "Great shorts for every activity. Great fit for everything from yoga to weights to sitting on the couch. I prefer longer shorts and these look and feel fantastic." —Andrew V.

Shipping info: Standard shipping is free. Express shipping is available.

This robe isn't your average robe from Marshall's. It's super-plush, super luxurious, and fit for a king, aka your dad. Plus, I'm sure he's due for an upgrade.

This is genuinely the only reed diffuser I will ever buy. A non-Lafco standard diffuser lasts two weeks — this one last four months and it just looks good. Like, it literally doubles as a cute decor piece and a diffuser.

Get it from Sperry for $79.99.

I got my dad this for Father's Day one year, and it's the only shirt he's actually continues to wear regularly. No dad wants any type of ironing or "hassle" involved with dressing up, LOL.

Promising review: "Absolutely the best looking, best feeling, best all around style of clothing I have ever worn. All the other clothes in my closet that aren't UNTUCKit are either used as work clothes, workout clothes, and lounge around the house clothes, because all I want to be seen in now, in public is UNTUCKit." —Tanner D.

Shipping info: Standard and expedited shipping is available.

Get it from Untuckit for $89

Every stylish dad I've ever met has a pair of Maui Jim sunglasses. It's just science.

Your dad can use his phone to pick his favorite scents (from popular brands you know) which will then emanate through the car.

Get it from Pura for $34.99.

There are two nozzles that release a bunch of ingredients that moisturize your skin and may improve complexion, skin tone, and the appearance of fine lines!

Promising review: "This is the best moisturizer/serum I have ever used. It moisturizes your face — and it's not too thin, but also not too thick. As someone who has tried a million different moisturizers at multiple different price points, this is the one that I will always buy. It's top-of-the-line and actually works. My favorite part is the duality of the different serums integrated into a single pump. You can still feel it working after weeks of application." — Carleen, Verified Buyer

Shipping info: Ground shipping is available.

Get it from SkinMedica for $295.

It's like an adult S'well bottle. It's vacuum-sealed, leakproof, and double-lined with stainless steel. Perfect for hiking, going to the gym, or just running errands.

I wore this on vacation in Malta. It's perfect for dinner, brunch, or anywhere you want to dress a little more formally — but not too formal. It's got a buttonless color, so it's very lightweight but also fitted perfectly.
