Dads are notoriously hard to shop for, but that doesn’t mean all they want is a new pair of socks (again). Treat that dude to something special this Father’s Day with this handy-dandy gift guide organized by type o’ dad and designed for even the procrastinating-est procrastinator — because all of these items are available for same-day delivery with DoorDash. 

Yes, folks, that means that even if you waited until the last minute to buy a Father’s Day gift, you can still send him a fancy new drill or a high-quality golf bag or a nice bottle of rum — no matter how far away you live. And if you’re more of a planner, that works too; you can schedule a delivery (and a virtual card) up to one week in advance and get a text when your Dasher is off to Dad’s house. Happy shopping!

The Chef

For dads who love to cook, you can’t go wrong with a set of Cuisinart Stainless Steel Mixing Bowls with Lids — these babies will appeal to bakers and outdoor grillmasters alike (they’re the perfect size for marinating large cuts of meat) and the lids make transport a breeze. Pair them with another gift that keeps on giving — an XL tin of your favorite olive oil (I’m partial to, which comes from Sicily and looks as fancy as it tastes).

Or go big with a fancy new kitchen gadget like the Ninja Pro 4-in-1 Air Fryer, which fries (with little to no oil), roasts, reheats, and dehydrates. It heats to 400 degrees in minutes, is sleeker and easier to clean than most other brands on the market, and may guarantee a lifetime supply of perfectly crispy chicken wings for you.

The At-Home Bartender

If you have one of those dads who appreciates a good stiff drink after work, whiskey may feel like the obvious gift choice. But if you’re my dad, you got that last year… and the year before… and maybe you want to switch things up a little. Enter Diplomatico, a highly refined Venezuelan sipping rum with notes of orange peel, toffee, and licorice that give it a smooth, almost bourbon-like mouthfeel. This is certainly not the Bacardi of frat parties of yore — and the bottle will add a nice gentlemanly aesthetic to his bar cart.

Or maybe he’s an Italophile who appreciates a good summer cocktail? Try one of the exciting new Italian liqueurs on the market, like the citrusy, bergamot-driven Italicus (which plays well with gin) or the orangey, herbaceous Amante 1530, a bittersweet amaro that subs nicely for Aperol in a spritz. 

The Home Improver

Got one of those dads who spends his weekends tinkering around the house? Treat him to some new power tools, like a CRAFTSMAN 4-volt 1/4-in Cordless Screwdriver, which stores bits in a handy rotating cartridge to make every screwdriving task — from assembling furniture to hanging pictures — quicker and easier. Or a DEWALT V20 20-volt Max-Amp Brushless Hammer Drill, the go-to drill for tough jobs thanks to its serious horsepower, on-tool work light, and high bit retention. 

As an add-on or a standalone (if Dad already has all the tools he needs but just wants a place to store them), give him a Klein Tools MODbox 18 Pocket Tool Pouch. With a whopping 18 pockets for all kinds of tools, fasteners, and supplies (there’s even a proprietary tape measure clip!), this tool pouch easily attaches to and releases from any belt.

The Skincare Appreciator

Dad’s skin deserves love too — and he’s probably not going to give it to himself. Treat him to some H&E (hydration and exfoliation!) with a Jack Black Skin Saviors 4-Step Regimen Set. Included in the set are the brand’s best-selling aloe and sage face cleanser, energizing vitamin C scrub, moisturizer (with SPF 20), and minty lip balm, all in TSA-approved travel sizes. Or go big with a luxurious 15.8-oz  tub of Lush’s delightful Dream Cream Body Lotion — the matte black aesthetic belies the seriously skin-soothing ingredients within: calming oat milk, lavender, and chamomile. If Dad’s skincare regimen is already on point, treat him to an upgrade (and maybe an at-home spa day) with Innisfree’s Super Volcanic Pore Clay Mask, which contains purifying volcanic ash from Jeju Island in Korea.

The Gadget Lover

If Dad’s screen time needs an upgrade, grab him a TCL Technology S-Class 1080p 40" FHD HDR LED Smart TV with Google TV.  TCL is a surprisingly reliable budget brand that costs a fraction of what the other big players do. 

Or, let him game on the go with the new Nintendo Switch, a split pad compact style with an old-school feel thanks to its full-size textured analog control sticks, which will bring him back to his gaming glory days (Mario Kart, anyone?).

Or, if he’s yet to upgrade from his decrepit pair of wired earbuds (Dad, did you get those for free on an airplane?) treat him to the latest Beats by Dre Studio Pro Wireless Noise Canceling Headphones. With up to 40 hours of battery life, extra-easy one-touch Bluetooth pairing, and Dre’s signature custom acoustic platform, he’ll get the richest, most immersive sound quality he’s ever experienced, whether listening to music, podcasts, or your voice on the phone. 

The Sports Fanatic

If Dad’s idea of gaming involves more balls and grass than screens and switches, keep it classic (and on budget) with a Wilson Orange & Black Official NCAA Legend Basketball. A composite, all-surface cover and extra-grippy wide-set channels make this basketball perfect for pickup games in the driveway or sweating it out on an indoor court. A pair of ultra-soft and cozy Nike Black & White Sportswear Club Fleece Jogger Pants make for an excellent addition or a stand-alone gift. They bring a cozy but on-trend upgrade to his early-morning jogs… or even his late afternoon football-watching sessions. 

Oh, and did we mention that Father’s Day coincides perfectly with peak golf season? If that’s your dad’s game, treat him to a fancy new Top Flite Gamer Golf Stand Bag, which carts easily and props up on its own for easy access.  A 7-way padded divider will keep his clubs safe and organized while its seven additional pockets hold smaller accessories like tees, balls, scorecards, and even a cold beverage. Talk about a great last-minute Father’s Day gift!
