It’s pretty amazing that Father's Day falls on the same date every year and we still can’t remember it. Up there with the most regularly forgotten gifting days every year, Father's Day is a big trap. Of course, your dad says he doesn’t need or want anything. He’s lying. He thinks you’re going to forget it again this year, too. You’re not though, and most surprising of all, you’re going to get him a gift he’ll actually like.

There’s another trap on Father's Day, too. The wealth of go-to, stereotypical presents that we’ve been taught dads love but which end up accruing dust in a cupboard with all of the other forgotten, I’ll-use-it-one-day presents. In 2021, there’s a wealth of fire gifts for dads out there, you just have to uncover them.

This year, we’re looking to names like GilletteLabs, Tekla, and Dries Van Noten to raise the bar for Father's Day. The key is to keep things within the comfort zone while pushing the boundaries with luxury and cutting-edge design.

Keep scrolling for 8 of the best Father's Day gifts.
