Father’s Day Gift Guide

June 10, 2021

Maybe he taught you how to ride a bike. Maybe he’s helping you raise a tiny human. Maybe he’s bringing you a glass of wine after a full day of #momlife. There are so many reasons to celebrate dad, especially on Father’s Day. Looking for the perfect gift? We’ve rounded up our favorite ways to make his year extra special (like grilling tools and beard oil), plus tasty recipes to make for a backyard cookout.

Men’s Grooming Gifts for Dad

These shower and shave essentials will have him feeling good and put the environment first.

Bulldog Shave Gel

Treat Dad to a smooth shave without harsh ingredients thanks to an invigorating and aromatic blend of eight essential oils along with soothing aloe leaf extract.

Seaweed Bath Co. Exfoliating Detox Body Bar

This bar does it all—moisturizes, exfoliates, and gently cleanses thanks to ingredients like bladderwrack seaweed sustainably harvested off the coast of Maine.

Thrive Market Broad Spectrum Sunscreen, SPF 30

Help Dad protect his skin on the regular with a simple addition to his morning regime. Our broad spectrum mineral sunscreen with SPF 30 is lightweight and easy to apply.

Bulldog Beard Balm

Nourishing ingredients like aloe vera, camelina oil, and green tea will help condition dad’s beard and keep it healthy year-round.

Gifts for the Grill Master

Upgrade his spice cabinet with a collection of new seasonings that are guaranteed to level up dinner, then grab a curated meat box so Dad can test them out ASAP.

To go along with some fresh new spices, treat the dad who loves to grill to a selection of our premium, 100% grass-fed, pasture-raised cuts. Ethically and sustainably sourced, every bite boasts rich, robust flavor.

Wagyu Starter Box

The serious steak lover will adore First Light Farms’ Certified Humane Wagyu. These cuts are melt-in-your-mouth tender, beautifully marbled, and grass-fed and pastured on the hills of New Zealand.

Organic Free-Range Chicken Box

Enjoy a selection of our best birds in this box featuring bone-in chicken thighs, tenders, and boneless skinless breasts. Mix your best marinade and whip up your favorite sauce—these cuts can handle anything.

Build Your Own Seafood Box

For all things fish, customize a box especially for Dad. Choose from succulent scallops, wild-caught shrimp, Atlantic pollock, crab claws and more.

Gifts for the Bartender & Barista

If Dad loves a good cup of Joe (or a strong drink), treat him to our exceptional and sustainable tools, beans, and mixers and more.

CoffeeSock Reusable Coffee Filter

He’ll enjoy his daily ritual even more knowing it involves eco-friendly materials. CoffeeSock makes its reusable filters using Certified Organic cotton which isn’t just better for the environment—cotton absorbs more oils released from the beans while allowing acids to pass through. The result? A crisp and robust brew, sans waste.

Thrive Market Organic Breakfast Blend

Say good morning to our smooth and mild brew that’s Certified Organic and made from ethically-sourced beans with notes of toffee, caramel, and dark chocolate.

Harold Import Co. Oversized Ice Cube Tray

Give your favorite mixologist an extra-large, BPA-free ice cube tray to help keep drinks colder, longer.

Califia Farms Coconut Cream & Almond Milk Better Half

Ditch the milk and enjoy the richness of half-and-half without dairy. Califia’s plant-based creamer is a member favorite for a reason, adding just the right touch of silkiness to every cup.

Q Mixers Tonic Water

This tonic water is less sweet than conventional picks, complementing great spirits instead of overpowering them.

Revive Citrus Ginger Kombucha

Revive’s unique kombucha flavors are sophisticated enough to enjoy on their own, but they also make a great starting point for cocktail creation—especially when fresh citrus and zippy ginger come to the party.

Edible Father’s Day Gifts

These gourmet nibbles are a good call for foodie fathers.

P. Balistreri Salami Point Loma, Rosemary & Garlic

No antibiotics here! This artisanal pork salami includes natural ingredients like sea salt, white wine, and garlic, making it a welcome addition to dad’s famous charcuterie plate.


EPIC Cranberry & Sriracha Beef Steak Bites

Made with grass-fed beef, sweet cranberries, and spices, these crave-worthy, Paleo-friendly snacks are a total dad win.

Thrive Market Organic Beef Jerky

If dad likes to snack like a caveman, he’ll love our organic, grass-fed, pasture-raised jerky, flavored to perfection with organic apple cider vinegar, honey, and savory spices, and smoked low and slow for a delectably tender texture.

Louisville Vegan Jerky Co Smokey Carolina BBQ Vegan Jerky

You don’t have to eat meat to enjoy jerky. This vegan snack is made by hand in small batches using textured soy protein, yellow mustard, apple cider vinegar, molasses, and tamari.
