To help you out, we've rounded up some of the top favorites among the dads we know and listed them for you below. Whatever his tastes, hobbies, or wants, we've got you covered so that this Father's Day will surprise him with the best gifts from your heart to his.  Read on to find out what we picked and why he'll love it too.

Andar WalletsAndar Wallets  
After all the money you've "borrowed" and, let's face it, cost your dad, he deserves a nice wallet for what's left.

Go minimalist. There are several styles of Andar wallets to keep cash, credit cards, and IDs safe, secure, and organized in a slim wallet style made of leather that also sports RFID blocking material. The wallets feature several slots, several in a no-fold design, and keep Dad's stuff at the ready for easy access and no-fuss frills that he will want for on-the-go or just to keep the chiro happy. 

Multitool from Gerber 
Dad does all the things, so he needs a tool that can help him be the Renaissance man he aspires to be. From plumber to chief tightener of loose screws, the multitool is just what he needs. Gerber has created their multi-tool with a lot of function in a small package. This handy tool is made of 3CR13 stainless steel and features spring-loaded pliers, wire cutters, tweezers, scissors, a file, a fine edge blade, cross driver, flat driver, package opener, and a bottle opener. Yeah, it's a lot rolled into one convenient and efficient tool that's sure to please Dad-- a gift good for dads because they can sure use a little more ease-of-living packed into one design, i.e. less clutter, more function. 

Spyderco Sharpener 
Dad is one sharp cookie, but, even so, he probably could use what one of our favorite dads calls the best sharpener he's ever had. The Tri-Angle Sharpmaker from Spyderco brings advanced technology that's perfect for sharpening fixed blades, folding knives, scissors, and other sharp tools. This set includes a detailed guide and a DVD for step-by-step instructions to ensure Dad gets those blades sharpened correctly and efficiently. The two sets of ceramic stones provide aggressive sharpening and professional-grade finishing for serrated and non-serrated blades. This one comes highly recommended. 

Stanley Happy Hour Set 
For all those times he's out exploring the Great Outdoors where almost every hour is happy hour, Dad definitely needs this amazing set. He can make a toast with the Happy Hour System 2x from Stanley when the time is right... ie, anytime he wants. Whether that's fireside or mid-hike, this 5-piece nesting set sports a 20-ounce insulated shaker, two insulated rocks glasses, citrus reamer, and a jigger suited for any concoction Dad can imagine. The stainless steel design is durable, BPA-free, and dishwasher safe. 

Hammocks from ENO and Hatteras 
You know Dad could use a little R&R, so get him a roomy, comfy hammock.

ENO offers a durable, portable, and easy to set up, the DoubleNest is fit for a king, which is perfect for Dad. He can lounge at home, on the trail ... anywhere the hammock can be set up, he can enjoy the relaxing comfort. And we recommend adding the Atlas Strap Hammock Accessory. Dad might need a little extra rope to get to that perfect spot to hang his hammock. And the Hatteras hammock is the luxury hammock for the back porch or yard. Dad can sip his sweet tea and take his sweet time enjoying his favorite book or just a well-deserved nap. The Hatteras is soft, supportive, and still tough as nails. Just like Dad.

Sunglasses from Costa Del Mar and Native
Give Dad the best with these high-quality sunglasses. Whether he's out fishing, taking a Sunday drive, or just lounging on the deck, these solid shades will keep those eagle eyes sharp and protected. Because they aren't just to make Dad look cool, though they do-- these shades protect his vision, help him see better on the water and in sunny conditions, and let him pretend to be awake while he "rests his eyes."

Hats from Patagonia, Tilley, and Columbia
Give Dad a new thinking cap! These on-point and stylish hats from our extensive collection make great gifts for dads who fish, garden, or take in some sun in any old way. There are the revived trucker hats that are so popular, fishing hats like the versatile, feature-rich selection that Tilley offers, and hats for everything from sitting in the sun to taking safaris ... even if it's just to the backyard with the kids. 

Colonel Conk
Clean-shaven, mustachioed, or beardy – dads come in all kinds and have different hair care needs. In the 1800s, Colonel Conk asked a simple question – why can’t men have the same experience at home as in the barber chair? That led to the development of a line of products that have stood the test of time. So, whether your dad needs a beard comb, some mustache wax, or a little shave soap, you are certain to find a little something to make his day. 

YETI Coolers
Dad needs one of these! Just ask him. He'll know the value of a YETI. YETI coolers can keep drinks or other items cold for days, and with sturdy side-handles and carrying straps, they also offer easy transport too. Yep, perfect for Dad to take fishing, golfing, gardening, boating ... you name it, YETI has it covered ... and cool. 

These gift ideas are just a few of the favorite things from our favorite dads. We hope you'll find a new favorite your favorite dad too! Happy Father's Day!
