With social distancing rules making it difficult to set up in-person plans for Father's Day, we wouldn't be surprised if this year's celebration has fallen off your radar (FYI: it's on June 21). And while it's classic American-sitcom fodder to think dads don't care as much about gifts and arbitrary holidays, they certainly appreciate an honorable mention just as much as moms do. So, it's our duty to shower them with all the love and swag that they so deserve on their special day — even if it's done from afar.
Many dads may revel in department store banners for lawnmower sales, but let's take a break from the usual "practical" gift routine. A little nudge towards modernity never hurt anyone — and, best-case scenario, your pops may wind up finding his life completely enhanced by those quirky beer accessories, that hi-tech air fryer, and maybe even this new-fangled brand called “Everlane.”
Whether you've only got $14 in your wallet or a slightly heftier sum saved up (plus five siblings who are willing to pitch in), we're supplying the unique gift ideas worth spending it on ahead.
