When it comes to gift giving, dad is often the hardest member of the family. He claims a gift would be a waste of money, and he refuses to give you hints when you ask. But it just wouldn’t be right to celebrate Father’s Day without a proper present! While dad always says he doesn’t need anything, we’d like to bet there are one or two goodies he would really appreciate—even if he isn’t thinking of them. Below, check out our editor’s picks for Father’s Day gifts in 2023, grouped by price (so you can find something in your budget).

  • Orchard Valley Harvest Snack Packs (Buy at Walmart, $3.98 per pack). A tasty and healthy snack option for a dad on the go: Orchard Valley Harvest Dark Chocolate Dipped Almonds, Salted Caramel Munch Mix, and OMG Omega-3 Mix. These crunchy treats are packed with protein, healthy fats, and important micronutrients like omega-3 fatty acids and antioxidants.
  • Cleaning Gel for Car (Buy from Amazon, $5.94). Does the dad in your life hate the crumbs and residue that gets stuck in car seats and cup holders? This car gel works like magic! Push the squishy gel into the dirty spot, then pull back up – it will grab all the gunk.
  • California Gold CollagenUP, Unflavored (Buy from iHerb, $17). Whether or not your husband or dad is active, collagen is a thoughtful gift that won’t get thrown away. California Gold’s collagen is made of hydrolyzed marine collagen peptides. It also includes hyaluronic acid, which improves skin elasticity and hydration, and vitamin C (which helps the body build and maintain its collagen supply). In other words, it has all of the good, and none of the bad.
  • Jones Cane Sugar Soda, Root Beer, 4 Pack (Buy from Amazon, $19.99). Who doesn’t love a classic, ice-cold root beer soda on a hot day? Jones Soda is made with 100 percent cane sugar (no high-fructose corn syrup here), and it has an old-fashioned, classic, delicious flavor that can’t be beat.
  • Smart Sweets Variety Pack Sampler (Buy from Amazon, $21). If your loved one has a sweet tooth but needs to watch his sugar intake, Smart Sweets are an excellent swap. Each pack contains up to 3 grams of sugar (that’s it!), and they’re bursting with flavor. Plus, you won’t find bad ingredients here. Smart Sweets include chicory root fiber, rice flour, and other natural, no-nonsense ingredients to give them a delicious chew.
  • Owala FreeSip Water Bottle, 16 ounces (Buy from, $22.99). When your husband’s full-sized water bottles are just too clunky and won’t fit in cup holders, smaller versions make excellent second options.

  • Loop Quiet Earplugs for Noise Reduction (Buy from Amazon, $24.95). It’s important to protect your hearing as you get older, and one of the best ways to do that, without missing out on the fun, is to invest in Loop Earplugs. These noise reducers don’t eliminate sound — rather, they dampen it, so you can still enjoy parties and concerts, and mow the lawn in peace. In fact, your love one may even hear better with these on, since they reduce extraneous noise.
