Shopping for the right gift for anyone—even those you’ve known your whole lives—can be challenging. You don’t want it to be too sentimental or extravagant, but it can’t be too generic or cheap. Some people can be particularly difficult to shop for, like that finicky aunt, a significant other with luxury tastes, or a dad who has everything.

If you’re shopping for the latter this Father’s Day, think about what makes them happy. Zero in on a type of gift. Is your dad a gadget guy who loves electronic toys to play with? Or an aspiring at-home chef who’s never met a new recipe he wasn’t dying to try? Or a do-it-yourselfer who’s always tinkering in the garage?

Know what makes him tick, find a gift that works, then look for an upgraded version that’s better than the ordinary. A grill thermometer, for example, is great for chefs, but a wireless, app-connected smart thermometer is even better. A home projector is perfect for multimedia-loving dads, but a portable high-def model is way better. A pocketknife is cool for outdoor lovers and DIYers, but a personalized, made-just-for-them blade is a gift your dad will cherish forever.

If you’re having trouble finding the right gift for dad this Father’s Day, we’ve got a few ideas for you. Here are 38 of the best Father’s Day gifts we recommend for any dad in 2022.
