It’s been ages since our son was small enough to explore the world sitting atop your shoulders, and even longer when they were just a tiny blip on sonogram print-out. But now they’re not only a full-grown adult, but a dad at that — one with their own son or daughter to raise, with a new appreciation for cheesy dad jokes, and experiencing the joys of fatherhood, especially on Father’s Day. To celebrate the son who was kind enough to upgrade you to grandparent status, consider these Father’s Day gifts for sons.

The type of gift you give your son for Father’s Day depends a lot on your relationship with one another (and your budget, naturally), but even more so on what they enjoy, their personality, and what phase of parenthood they’re in. For instance, a Father’s Day gift for your son that travels a ton might be a set of brilliantly-designed travel containers. On the other hand, for your son who appreciates a gag gift, a pair of socks with his kid’s mug on them will crack him up. And let’s say he’s got three kids under three and loved being outdoors as a child — a hammock to hang in his backyard to create his own kid-free space to unwind might just be the perfect Father’s Day gift.

Whether you keep it practical with something simple like a grooming kit, splurge on a big ticket item, or go the sentimental route, there is no doubt that your son will love getting one of these fantastic Father’s Day gifts for sons from you, Mom or Dad.

They will streamline the contents of your son’s dopp kit immensely, whether he’s going away for a week-long work trip or putting together his gym kit.


*The* Father’s Day gift for coffee lovers

Let’s say your son is very enthusiastic about his coffee. If so, the Moccamaster coffee maker is for sure on his radar. It comes in 23 cool hues (from this sleek forest green to a reflective chrome to school bus yellow), from one to 10 cup capacities, and it makes really really great-tasting coffee using a pour-over-like method. It’s quite simple to use, but the mechanism is precise, from the type of heating element used (copper) to the temperature the water heats to (between 92 and 96 Degrees Celsius), and way the water “sparkles” over the beans.


A Father’s Day gift for men who like to cook, grill, and entertain

Their products are also higher-quality than the convenient 10-pack your son might usually pick up (and have to regularly replace), and range from workout-friendly ankle cuts to taller, thicker hiking-friendly pairs. They’ll last longer and retain their shape longer than the average sock. As far as practical Father’s Day gifts go, this one should be at the top of your list.
