Father’s Day Gift Guide
11 ideas to get you started
For the Grill master
Every dad who mans a grill should have a meat thermometer. Specifically, a Bluetooth-enabled smart grilling thermometer. The handy gadget takes the temperatures of up to four pieces of meat at a time and alerts you when your food is ready. (Read: Never eat an undercooked steak again.)
For the Handyman
Mr. Fix-It deserves a new tool to play around with, like this 12-piece customizable pocket knife. It's small enough for him to carry on the go, and versatile enough to perform 16 functions. Just remind him, for your mom's sake, that he cannot take it through airport security.
For the Techie
The guy owned one of the first CD players, so naturally he's got his eye on a smartwatch. If your dad is an Android devotee, he'll love the LG Watch Urbane, a functional, attractive piece of wearable technology powered by Google. If he's an Apple devotee, there's that thing called the Apple Watch.
For the Imbiber
You love your pops. And your pops loves beer. This kit will allow him to experiment with brewing his own at home. Then if he gets the hang of it, you can get him a more advanced kit next year.
For the Music Maven
Let your dad channel his inner Mick or Steve with a ticket to see his favorite band. The Rolling Stones Zip Code Tour will travel to 15 cities across the country this summer. If you can’t snag tickets for the Stones, The Who, Neil Diamond and Fleetwood Mac are also on tour in the coming months.

For the Businessman
A man can always use a sharp new tie. Get him one that’s both affordable and stylish.
The Tie Bar ($25)
For the Channel Surfer
He keeps saying he's giving up on cable. Help him pull the trigger with an Apple TV. Be sure to set him up with some subscriptions to streaming services like Netflix, HBO Now, MLB TV, Hulu--you get the idea.
For the Wine Enthusiast
The oenophile in your life probably doesn't need another corkscrew. He probably does need this one-of-a-kind gadget, which will allow him to drink his fancy wine by the glass while ensuring the bottle stays perfectly good.
For the Clotheshorse
Admit it: Your dad has pretty good taste. Spoil him by letting one of Trunk Club's personal shoppers hand pick and ship clothing to fit his style and budget. Anything he doesn’t like, he sends back for free.

For the Golfer
He can use this indoor putting green any time he wants--and finally stop practicing his swing in the living room.
For the Dad Who Has Everything
Instead of buying your father an electric razor he'll never use, sign him up for a subscription service that delivers new razors to his door monthly. Then tell him how much money this will save in the long run. He'll be so proud.
