It’s probably too late at this point to ship a Father’s Day present to Dad’s door, but a gift card will get to him with time to spare, given that it’s going straight to his inbox. Though it may not be the most inspired solution, a voucher to his favorite store shows that you care, and he can finally get the tent, bottle of whiskey, or speakers he has been eyeing. If Dad’s the type of guy who likes to do research before any purchase, an e-card has the added benefit of allowing him flexibility to shop around and read reviews (we’ve got him covered on that front, from razors to dashcams). So whether Dad’s a voracious reader, constant snacker, or national-parks lover, you’ll find just the right gift card below to make him feel appreciated.

Clothing and accessories

Quince’s loungewear made our list of the best women’s pajamas, and its men’s collection has the same luxe cashmere and ultrasoft jersey to keep Dad cozy.

A pair of blue-light-blocking glasses could be the key to helping Dad get a restful night’s sleep (especially if he likes to scroll before bed). Eyewear brand Felix Gray appeared in our roundup of the best options twice, with one pair being named “most stylish,” thanks to minimalist silver frames that could easily pass for normal specs.

Fitness dads will love Ten Thousand’s lineup of specialized shorts, including a pair for water-to-land workouts that we named the best performance swim trunks.

From $25

Socks make up the foundation of a comfortable outfit, and we can’t get enough of Bombas’s, including its compression and wool versions. Strategist associate editor Louis Cheslaw has given the Gripper Slippers as gifts and loves that they “pack down flat for travel, and the rubber dots on the soles keep you from slipping.”

From $25

With a purchase from Haerfest’s Nothing Changes If Nothing Changes collection, Dad can support the fight against anti-Asian violence every time he wears his new T-shirt, beanie, or baseball cap.

From $25

We love Everlane’s quality staples that range from underwear to denim, so help Dad pick out some new basics with our guide to the brand.

A new linen shirt or pants will ensure that Dad looks spiffy for dockside drinks.

From $25

If Dad’s ready to swap his old Hanes T-shirts for something a little more stylish, point him toward the curved-hem one that we named the best overall pick in our white-tee roundup (actor Cheyenne Jackson also praised the black version).

Dads looking to replace a well-loved pair of Levi’s may want to consider the straight-leg or slim-fit cuts included in our roundup of the best men’s jeans.

From $25

Whether Dad’s into streetwear, running, or tennis, he’ll find something swooshed to zhuzh up his look.

Dad will look like he stepped straight out of Field & Stream as he’s packing Orvis polos and fly-fishing gear in a handsome duffel that appears in our guide to the best monogrammed gifts.
