8 Subscription Boxes Sure to Delight Any Dad This Father’s Day
It’s a universal truth that dads are among the hardest people to buy gifts for. While Mother’s Day can be won with a gorgeous bouquet of flowers and a trip to the spa, Father’s Day always makes us question what our dads even, you know, like. Enter the following eight subscription boxes, which truly have something for every type of dad.
For the Dad Who Needs to Be Caffeinated: Heartwood Coffee Club
He’s been brewing the same Dunkin' blend for as long as you can remember. No shame to that, but why not help him discover some new types of java? This subscription includes one bag of freshly roasted arabica coffee beans that are ready to enjoy as soon as they're delivered. Dad now runs on an exotic blend from halfway around the world.
For the Dad Who Likes It Hot: Hot Sauce of the Month Club
Not like that, you weirdo. This monthly subscription sends your pops one or three bottles of artisanal hot sauces (that he hopefully hasn’t tried yet) ranging from mild to extra hot.
For the Dad Who Still Uses Disposable Razors: KC Shave Co. Shaving Crate
This is likely a gift he would never get himself but would appreciate immensely once it’s on his bathroom counter. Each box comes with 25 replacement safety razor blades, mahogany-scented pre-shave oil, mahogany-scented shave soap, menthol aftershave tonic and (bonus!) your dad’s belated realization that he’s not too much of a guy’s guy to groom.
For the dad WHO'S ALWAYS WATCHING FOOD NETWORK: BBQ Box
If your dad’s idea of happiness is standing over a hot grill with an ice-cold beer in hand, look no further. Every month, BBQ Box sends one sauce or marinade, one rub or spice, one edible treat and one sample pack of wood chips, plus a recipe card to help him whip up something new and delicious.
For the Dad Who's a Bookworm: Culture Carton Book Club
The point of this subscription? To ship guys a book each month “that belongs on every man’s bookshelf,” along with lifestyle accessories curated around a monthly theme. That means your dad can expect fiction, nonfiction and everything in between.
For the Dad Who Makes a Mean Old-Fashioned: American Cocktail Club
Whether your pops sticks to the same scotch on the rocks out of habit or is constantly ordering the coolest-sounding drink on the menu, American Cocktail Club can introduce him to great, new recipes. Each month he’ll get everything—including an option to add booze—to make four servings of a cocktail he might not have usually concocted for himself (think: mezcal and gin martinis and watermelon mojitos).
For the Dad Who Loves a Good Game Night: UnboxBoardom
He went from Chutes and Ladders to Mouse Trap when you were a kid. He’s even dabbled in Cards Against Humanity (but finds it a bit risqué). This fun subscription lets him choose a new board game each month, or every two or three months, from a selection that includes party games, family games and strategy games. Just be ready to get really competitive at game night, like, all the time.
For the Dad Who Loves Fishing: Postfly
Your dad's best life takes place on a lake at 5 a.m., so he’ll be delighted by these fishing essentials. Each month, he’ll get a box with premium flies, tying kits and other gear we’re sure is straight from fisherman’s heaven.
