Dear old Dad. We love him with all of our hearts, but man is he hard to buy for! He probably just wants to spend time with you, but if you want to give him a little something special, I found tech gifts, grooming gifts, and tough-as-nails travel gifts, all for under $100. Too steep? Check out my Gifts Under $50 guide for dads.
The Cadence Cube Speaker ($89.95)
If Dad likes to share his tunes with everyone in the room, this Bluetooth speaker is the perfect vehicle. It looks like a stylish piece of home decor, pairs with his phone in seconds, and sounds fantastic.

Gentleman Farmer The Distinguished Gentleman Set (regularly $68, now $54)
This gift set is ideal for a guy who is tricky to shop for. The set contains the Wood Paneled Library Candle, which includes notes of Bergamot, Vetiver, and Leather, and a set of handcrafted Whiskey Stones, which are designed to chill, but not dilute, his favorite cocktail. The set comes in an elegant box, ready to gift.
Everlast Cardio Fitness Training Bag ($99.99)
If Dad’s looking to level up his at-home fitness game, this easy-to-assemble foam punching bag is just the thing to add some intensity. Complete the gift with a pair of training gloves, like the comfortable Everlast Striking Training Gloves ($35.99).
Baseus PowerCombo ($59.99)
If his desk is a mess of cables, this powerful compact power strip houses two USB-C ports, two USB-A ports, and two AC sockets, charging several desktop devices at once.
This gorgeous butcher block is fit for a guy with elegant taste. It can be used for serving or prep – I vote for serving because it’s so elegant! It’s also reversible, featuring a flat side and a side with 3 smooth divots, ideal for olives or nuts.
milk + honey Detox Bundle ($79, a $94 value)
Does Dad need some downtime? This set includes everything he needs to chill and regroup, including a sugar-and-sea salt body polish to exfoliate, a charcoal face masque to cleanse and hydrate, and Regular Strength Deodorant No. 9, which is an effective and refreshing aluminum-free deodorant.
On the go
Duchamp Garment Duffle Bag ($98.50)
I love a well-organized bag and this one has all the bells and whistles. It lays completely flat for packing, has a zippered section for suits, plus it has pockets for a pair of shoes and plenty of room for his Dopp kit and other essentials. And it meets the TSA’s carry-on bag requirements.
EZQuest GaN 90W Fast Charger ($79.99, on sale right now for $69.99)
If he always forgets to charge his devices, tuck this little charger into his carry-on. This charger features several protections, including over-voltage, over-temperature, and short-circuit, and can power up his devices 3x faster than regular chargers. There are several models available, but this 90W version has one USB-A port and two USB-C ports. It comes with one reinforced USB-C cable as well as an EU pin converter for his adventures abroad.
Stryke Club Fresh Start Kit ($64.99)
This kit contains all the essentials for grooming on the go, including an all-in-one shower wash, zit stick, cleaning wipes, lip balm, and a bamboo toothbrush. All tucked into a sturdy travel bag.
If he’s a fragrance guy, this gift set comes with a cool travel bag and two gorgeous men’s fragrances; AWAKEN [08:00 GMT], which has top notes of bergamot, grapefruit, and coriander, and UNWIND [20:00 GMT], which has top notes of lemon and ginger. The set is exclusively on So-Avant-Garde.com, and will be discounted 25 percent from June 8-12.
He’ll be the king of the campsite with this 21-piece packable cook set! It has everything he needs to prepare, cook, and serve meals for up to 4 people. The kit includes items like a stainless steel pot, a 3-ply frypan, plates, bowls, and more.
Motorola ROKR 500 Wireless Portable Speaker ($69.99)
This portable speaker is the ideal companion while he’s swinging in his hammock or lounging on a pool chair. It’s slim and compact with solid sound and an integrated wireless charging pad for his devices. It can also be used wired and it’s cool enough to sit on his desk. Available in several colors.
This tough-as-nails cooler keeps the contents cool for up to 30 hours, making it ideal for worksite lunches, tailgating, camping, and more. The lid opens 180-degrees, and stores important items, like his phone, keys, medicine, etc. The shoulder strap makes it easy to carry and what’s more, the cooler can be used as a seat!
If he practices yoga, pilates, or stretching, this lightweight, 100% rubber mat will get lots of use at home, but it also folds up into his duffel or suitcase when he’s traveling (so he doesn’t have to work out on gross hotel carpets). I also like the quick-drying, absorbent Les Mills Yoga Towel ($29), which is good to lay on the mat or on a workout bench once he works up a sweat.
All Citizens Gift Card ($25 and up)
This socially-conscious apparel brand offers a selection of super-soft, flattering and affordable basics in sustainable fabrics with inclusive sizing and extended fits. My favorite Father’s Day gift is their $99 drawer refresh, which offers his choice of tees, underwear, workout shorts, and socks.
Dad will love these buttery bamboo pajamas, which are some of the softest I’ve seen. He’ll love that the bamboo fabric is sustainable, hypoallergenic, and cooler than cotton. He can even match with Mom or his little one’s jammies! Available in several colors.
If Dad loves his cozy apparel but doesn’t want to look like every other guy in a sweatshirt, this pullover has a broken-in feel and cool details so he’ll stand out from the pack. Also available in the collection are joggers and shorts. Available in several colors. I have the Blue Topaz and it’s fab.
Kamik Marty Cross Sandal ($89.99)
If Dad’s been wearing the same old flip-flops year after year, it’s time for a style upgrade. These comfortable, eco-friendly faux leather slides have a microfiber lining and are perfect for a casual brunch or a stroll on the beach.
