Father’s Day 2023 is Sunday, June 18. Just around the corner!
Below you will find my top recommendations for practical gifts that your dad, brother, husband, or son will use all year long.
These gift picks will be perfect matches for almost any man - regardless of his line of work or his interests. Whether he enjoys traveling, reading, hiking, or golfing, you're bound to find a great idea below.
Our top Father's Day gift pick for 2023 is a Weber stand-alone Griddle, which is the fastest growing product in the outdoor grilling category! The Weber 36" Griddle makes cooking a breeze. Preparing burgers, pancakes, paninis, omelets, and vegetables is simple...and clean-up is easier and more straight-forward than a traditional grill! You'll be surprised at how flavorful griddle-prepared menu items are. In fact, your guy actually may end up neglecting his traditional grill in favor of the griddle!
If the man in your life works in law enforcement (police, fire, military, etc), he may already be a fan of 5.11 Tactical. If not, this is the time to introduce him. 5.11 Tactical is “purpose-built gear for the most demanding missions" to help people “always be ready” for any situation.
Needless to say, we are huge fans of the lightweight, well-designed, and super functional clothing pieces by 5.11 Tactical. The brand's military-inspired pieces offer more than meets the eye – invisible mag pockets, water repellent fabrics, and other useful features.
For Father's Day 2023, we especially want to draw your eye to the Ridge Shorts - which feature eight pockets (including hand pockets with knife reinforcement!) and a comfort waistband.
Looking for ultra soft cushioning and reliable traction in a running shoe? The Caldera 6 by Brooks Running is a solid option. These running shoes offer the soft support that his back and knees need for long runs.
Carhartt is a family-owned company that designs robust and reliable workwear for use on the ranch, farm, construction site, or workshop. This Michigan-headquartered company stands for hard work and the associated values of dependability, honesty, and trust.

Designed specifically for use at the gym, the Men's CXT-1 Trainer is a highly rated shoe for use in cross-training, cardio, running, and weight lifting. Created by trusted swim brand TYR, the refreshing navy/turquoise color scheme is both eye catching and pool-inspired. Some of the many features include: extended toe guard for added durability & traction, smooth heel tab for effortless glide, and stable in the heel for control and ground contact.
For comfortable, well-fitting clothes that are both stylish and functional, we recommend that you peruse Columbia Sportswear's website. Whether he travels internationally, hikes on the weekends, or spends lazy afternoons on a fishing boat, he is sure to reach for Columbia's quick-drying, sun-protecting, and cooling clothing options wherever he goes.

"Easy to digest and quickly absorbed, honey helps power your performance without causing a sugar crash like other sweeteners." Of note: the waffles are also available in a gluten-free option!
