You may still have another week until Father’s Day, but you’ll probably need all the time you can get. As you know, dads can be pretty difficult to shop for because they don’t always want anything specific or care for material things. In fact, you might have even heard this line: “I have everything I need,” or “Whatever you get is fine.”

As frustrating of an answer that may be sometimes, this is pretty standard for parents who claim to not want gifts on their special day. But because you know not to fall for that one, be sure to make this Father’s Day extra special — even if he says not to.

For gift ideas, think about what activities your dad enjoys, practical items he can use or products with sentimental value. This could be a hand-crafted card or a massage gun to help him relax. But if you need some more inspiration, take a look at these top-rated items below to help make Dad smile on his special day.
