The 75 Best Gifts for Dad That He'll Actually Use (& Won't Abandon in the Garage)


1. J.Crew Oversized Cashmere Wrap

For the Mom Who Loves Anything Cashmere

Near or far, mom will love thinking of whoever gave her this oversized cashmere wrap every time she drapes it around her body or neck. It’s simple, classic and a true treat-yourself moment—something she’ll associate with you whenever she's lounging, traveling and more.

2. The Sill Petite Orange Orchid

For the Individualist

The unique orange-and-blush color of this Phalaenopsis orchid is distinctive, as is the chic little planter (in your choice of blush, mint or cream). It's delivered with buds, which will open quickly once set out in the home...and then last for up to three months, far longer than the cut flowers those other kids of hers will send.

3. Slip Silk Pillowcase

For the Mom Who Doesn't Want Anything

She's got more than everything she needs...until you gift her this pillowcase. It's a little touch of luxury that will keep her hair and skin from being scratched, creased or tugged by the other pillowcases she uses. The case comes in nine luxe shades, all with the same rich silk sheen.

4. Gardenhome Garden Tool Set

For the Gardener

This ingenious set will prove useful to veteran gardeners and newbies alike. It includes a folding garden stool and a detachable canvas bag that holds five tools. Each is stainless steel with wood handles, and the weeder and weeding fork alone are worth the price of the whole set.

5. Noemie Custom Name Necklace

For the Woman Who Appreciates Cute Jewelry

Give her a cute reminder of something special like the name of her cherished pet, her nickname or the initials of an inside joke with an 18K gold cursive word as the centerpiece.

6. The Nue Co. Magnesium Ease

For Insomniac Moms

PureWow staffers are full-on converts to the cult of before-bed topical magnesium, and we bet any sleep-deprived mom will appreciate the relaxation it promotes. Additionally, this formula contains anti-inflammatory arnica, so it does double duty as a lightly lavender-scented muscle rub.

7. Samsung The Frame Smart TV

For the Mom Who Appreciates Art and Tech

This 43-inch television looks like a framed piece of art when you're not watching it and displays every piece of content in stunning 4K resolution. And since it is compatible with Amazon Alexa and Samsung's Bixby virtual assistants, she's going to be able to enjoy this with all the tech hookups she already uses.

8. Calpak Hue Mini Carry On Luggage

For the World Class Traveler

This little wonder comes in seven appealing colors and is sized to fit under most airline seats, so she'll never have to struggle with heavy overhead compartments ever again. And it's chock-full of extras, such as a TSA-approved lock, a removable inside strap to keep the lid at a 90-degree angle and a zippered interior divider with lots of pockets.

9. Tory Burch Kira Chevron Bi-Fold Wallet

For the Fashionista

If you want to really treat your mom, get her this gorgeous leather Tory Burch wallet. It's the perfect color to coordinate with any bag and has multiple interior slit card pockets as well as a coin pocket. Most of all, she'll delight in the luxe leather quilted feel of it.

10. Sterling Forever Constellation Necklace

For the Zodiac Obsessed

Meghan Markle may have set the trend, but zodiac anything is a forever favorite. We love the price point on this specific design (it’s cubic zirconia) and also the option to personalize. (Choose mom’s birth sign—or give her a couple of necklaces, one to represent the birth of each of her kids.)

11. Ted Lasso ‘Believe’ Mug

For the 'Ted Lasso' Fan

Just think of how much she’ll relish sipping her morning cup of joe from an arty mug that nods to the show you both loved.

12. Sonos Roam

For the Mom Who Loves a Portable Playlist

Maybe she pumps her tunes in the garden; maybe it’s while she fits in a workout. Either way, this portable, waterproof smart speaker will deliver hours of premium sound via a device so compact she can carry it wherever she goes. Pick up a second speaker and have her connect them via Bluetooth for multi-room music.

13. Shiatsu Neck Back Massager Pillow

For the Car Commuter

Tell her to strap it around the driver’s seat—or around her office desk chair. This deep-needing massage “pillow” features an ergonomic design that will improve her blood circulation and soothe tired muscles, the exact problems that tend to creep up when she spends hours on the road. The straps are also adjustable, so she can really fix it to any spot. P.S. Apply the coupon to snag $2 off.

14. lululemon Align High Rise Pant With Pockets

For the Yogi

Heavenly soft with a weightless feel, these sweat-wicking yoga pants feature pockets and a four-way stretch that stays breathable while retaining its flexible fit. Also of note: The color palette. This design in particular is available in 16 shades (although we’re partial to the Red Merlot).

Size range: 0 to 20

15. J.Crew Collection Short Trench Coat

For the Cool Mom

She was serving looks before you were born. Show her she's still got it with this classic silhouette in a bangin' print that is totally on-trend as outerwear takes center stage.

Women-made foodstuffs fill this box including antioxidant-packed tea cookies, adaptogen-rich energy bars and more. If your mom has ever run a business or believes in more opportunities for females in business, she'll love this box.

17. Caraway Cookware Set

For the Mom Who Loves Cooking

With nearly 36,000 glowing reviews and a 4.8-star rating, it's safe to say she'll swoon over this cookware set. For starters, it's nonstick and eco-friendly, safely reaching 550 degrees Fahrenheit without leaving any stains. It also has stainless-steel handles and an enameled outer surface for oven-safe cooking, plus included pan and lid storage solutions. But she'll be even more impressed by how easily she can pull off cooking with no oil (super rare, folks).

18. Bala Bars

For the Exerciser

This pair of three-pound weights is balanced to distribute the resistance for a more comfortable workout. And they come in nine beautiful colors (sage, blush, sand and more), so she'll want to keep them out.

19. Our Place The Perfect Pot

For the Efficiency Queen

It’s the most thoughtful pot on the planet—much like its sister product the Always Pan. The 5.5 quart Perfect Pot can boil, bake, crisp and steam and looks super pretty on your stovetop while doing it.

20. Dailylook Gift Card

For the Mom Who Always Says She Has Nothing to Wear

After taking a short style quiz, mom will sign up to get a one-time or periodic box of 12 items that are stylist-sourced, which she can shop piece by piece (you’ll gift a certain dollar amount, but there’s no monthly subscription cost, aka the fashion inspo is free). Her style choices are refreshed daily, and anything she returns can be shipped back at no cost.

21. Augustinus Bader’s The Rich Cream

For the Skincare Obsessed

This fan-favorite cream deeply hydrates, conditions and renews skin so that it feels instantly nourished. She can slather it on, morning and night, then take note of the hydration transformation in just a few weeks’ time.

22. Vuori Boyfriend Jogger

She’ll no longer need out-of-the-house manicures on the reg, thanks to Olive & June’s DIY package deal, which includes a clean-up brush, polish remover pot, nail clipper, cuticle serum and more. Better yet, you can invest in one (or multiple) polishes so she'll have a rotation to choose from.

24. Clevr Blends

For the Mom Looking to Upgrade Her Latte

Forget coffee—these signature blends, dubbed magical elixirs, are so good they regularly sell out.

This blend, a spiced turmeric latte with adaptogens, mushrooms and probiotics, is designed to soothe stress and create calm and comfort.

25. Softies PJ Set

For the Mom Who Loves to Lounge

These jersey PJs are some of the softest we’ve ever tried. They’re flowy and fantastic and the material wicks moisture away so that you stay dry and cool all night long. Oprah continually places the brand on her list of Favorite Things list.

Size range: S to 3X

26. Soulcycle At-Home Bike

For the Mom Who Loves Her Home Workout

The bike that launched a national craze for spin classes is now available in-home, and it comes with access to so many group classes she won't know where to begin. Sturdily built, with a huge high-resolution touchscreen and power metrics readings like the pros use, she'll have everything she needs to amp up her fitness.

27. Tomales Road: Dusk Print & Frame

For the Art Collector

This vibrant print is something she can hang immediately in the bathroom (in the 5 x 7-inch size) or as a larger conversation piece in the living room (it’s available all the way up to 30 x 40 inches). This particular work of art was inspired by the countryside in Sonoma County, and it comes framed.

28. Aday Trailblazer Belted Blazer

For the Mom Who Loves a Power Brunch/Lunch

The reviews are in: This durable yet dressy blazer from Aday is a perfect fit, whether you’re petite or tall. The belt (which is removable) makes it look instantly tailored and we love the gunmetal snaps. The piece is comfortable and low-maintenance, but most importantly it will make her feel stylish and pulled together, no matter what’s on her agenda.

Size range: XS to L

29. Ilia Mascara

For the Mom Who Lives for Good-Looking Lashes

Have you heard the expression 'lashes for days'? Well, this voluminous mascara from the clean beauty brand Ilia delivers on that ten-fold.

Even better, it’s proof that you can get out the door with a one-and-done beauty routine (mascara only, that’s it!) and look like a million bucks.

30. Cuyana Leather Airpod Case

This stylish little case ensures she doesn’t lose track of the tiniest piece of tech in her handbag. Made from leather that’s been sustainably sourced, this pouch is pretty and can be monogrammed for an extra-thoughtful touch.

31. Jenni Kayne Alpaca Basketweave Throw

For the Mom Who’s *Still* All About Hygge

This ultra-soft blanket "feels like a hug" according to one Jenni Kayne reviewer. We agree since the ultra-luxurious yarn blend (it's 70 percent alpaca, plus wool and a touch of polyamide) has a loft that makes it lightweight yet snuggly. Your mom will love wrapping herself up in a cozy throw that is as much a treasure resting elegantly on the corner of the couch or draped across a bed as it is on her lap.

32. Twinings Tea Bags Sampler Assortment Box

For the Disorganized Tea Fancier

She'll appreciate both the container and the goods inside when you order this assortment sampler stacked with 80 bags of Twinnings tea in 16 different flavors, like Green Tea Pomegranate and Raspberry and Honeybush Mandarin Orange. Just don't forget to apply the coupon for an additional $2 off.

Is she always out and about? Gift her this sleek and packable wool hat, which she can fold up and toss in her carryall or into the back seat.

35. The Weekday Vegetarians Cookbook

For the Foodie Looking to Expand Meatless Mondays

From New York Times bestselling author Jenny Rosenstrach, this cookbook features 100 recipes and a clear-cut plan for how to go about consuming less meat in her diet. (A tactic that’s good for the planet, FYI.) Her action plan: Saving her meat splurges for the weekend and prioritizing vegetarian recipes—with meals like cauliflower cutlets with ranch dressing and pizza salad with white beans—all week long.

36. Mon Couer Good Human Sweatshirt

For the Eco-Conscious

Not familiar with this new and sustainability-focused kids’ clothing brand? Well, they also have a few select options for parents too. Case in point: This super-cute sweatshirt that mom can match with her mini-me. Tres chic!

37. Parachute Linen Duvet Cover

You know a duvet cover is good when you start getting random texts about it from your mom's friends. Made from linen, after a couple of washes, this bad boy feels buttery soft and appropriate for any season. It comes in ten restful colors and is perfect for anyone having a hard time prioritizing sleep.

38. Artifact Uprising Color Series Photo Book

For the Mom Who Wants to Freeze Time

It’s been on her list to corral the memories from that epic beach trip all year. The Color Series from Artifact Uprising helps you do it for her—building out a volume so vibrant that she can display the modern cover (with a die-cut design) proudly anywhere. Also fine if it’s just photos of the grandkids!

39. Jenni Kayne Basil Glass Candle

For the Mom Who Needs a Pick-Me-Up

Hello, energizing. This bright and clean-scented candle from Jenni Kayne is made from a coconut blend and delivers a scent so fresh and uplifting she’ll want to ritualize the moments it burns. The key scents? Basil, of course, but there are also notes of neroli and green herbs.

40. Bach Rescue Cream

For the Mom with Tired Eyes

Speaking of sleep deprivation, this moisturizer is a miracle worker for reviving dry patches in delicate areas, say, beneath your eyes. The key ingredient? Shea butter. A makeup artist turned us onto this product and it’s since become a forever staple in our vanity.

41. Framebridge

For the Gallery Wall Novice

Available in 12 different finishes, this frame is made to order with a few taps on your iPhone. Simply choose a pic or select one from Instagram and upload it. Our favorite detail is the story pocket that comes included on the back. Tuck in a handwritten note about why the photo is one of your favorite memories and, voila, gift of the year.

42. The Neck Hammock

For the Mom with Tech Neck

She can hang this innovative device from a door, railing or even a sturdy chair and celebrate the feeling of increased mobility in the neck and shoulders. This “hammock” of sorts works by gently pulling the head away from the neck to stretch and decompress the spinal cord, which increases blood flow and oxygenates her muscles. In other words, a dream for anyone who spends a bit too much time hunched over a desk.

43. Panda Planner Pro

For the Productivity-Minded

The Panda Planner asks her to jot down three things they’re grateful for, three things they’re excited about and an affirmation to get them in the right frame of mind for the day. Plus, five daily priorities, along with a super-helpful hour-by-hour scheduling template, so she can map out how it’ll all get done.

44. Mama Bear Buffalo Plaid Clog Slipper

For the Mom Who’s the Fiercest Protector

Yes, these slippers are charming, but they’re also cozy, comfortable and come with grip and no slip (there’s an indoor/outdoor outsole, so they’re durable no matter where she has to walk).

Size range: S to XL

45. Bloomscape Prickly Pear Cactus

For the Woman with a Black Thumb

If she can't seem to keep ferns or palms alive, this low-maintenance plant is the perfect gift. The beaver tail-shaped pads are eye-catching, and the plant hardly needs any fertilizing or even watering.

46. Brooklinen Linen Robe

For the Mom Who Wants to Luxuriate

Picture this: Mom steps out of the shower, she reaches for her robe. There to greet her? A bathrobe so effortless, she’ll feel like she’s at the spa. Made from the finest Belgian and French flax, the material is stonewashed for an extra soft feel.

47. Provence Glory

For the Wanderluster

She’ll always have Provence thanks to this gorgeous, photo-heavy coffee table book that showcases the iconic but also the lesser-known landmarks throughout the South of France. It’s the perfect book to page through whether she's feeling wistful or actually trip-planning.

48. Vice Versa Folding Heels

For the Frequent Flyer

This ingenious pair of shoes has heels that snap on (for when she's headed to an appointment) and snap off (to make chic flats for when she's racing through an airport). Not to mention, the simple silhouette and stretchy single-back strap are attractive and versatile.

Size range: 6 to 11

49. Menopod Instant Cooling Device

For the Perimenopausal Mom

This genius little device cools to 41 degrees Fahrenheit in under a minute—perfect for holding against the back of a neck, on wrists or behind the knees during a hot flash. It's designed to look like a mouse, so it blends into a desk set, and it's palm-sized, so this USB rechargeable device is completely discreet.

50. Zojirushi Rice Cooker

For the Healthy Eater

This easy-to-use Japanese-made rice cooker lets her select the rice type from the settings menu (white/sushi, mixed, porridge, sweet, brown and quick-cooking), put in rice and water, and then just go about her business. What's just as handy: The device keeps the rice warm without overcooking it, even if she's not home for hours.

51. Béis Mini-Weekender Bag

For the Organized Traveler

Does the mom in question have a place for any and everything in its place? Gift her this multi-functional tote and travel bag.

There's also a trolley sleeve to balance it atop her rolling luggage.

52. Senteibasami Carbon Steel Pruners

For the Garden Snob

The way she fusses over her outdoor space, you would think she must have all the tools. But odds are, she hasn't splurged on Japanese gardening tools renowned for their design and functionality. These rust-proof secateurs will fit nicely in her hands and come with their own protective holster.

53. Trade Gift Coffee Subscription

For the Coffee Feen

Mom can't go without her cup of joe, and we can't blame her. So we simply can't think of a better gift to give her than this Trade coffee subscription. You can personalize the box with six bags based on her favorite roasts from more than 450 flavors and more than 55 indie roasters worldwide. And it will arrive fresh at her door in no time.
