We only include products that have been independently selected by Romper's editorial team.

The dad who loves camping trips or who just likes to take their coffee on-the-go will get a lot of use out of this travel coffee press.

2 A High-Speed Blender
If you’re going to splurge, a high speed blender is a great choice. This one is BPA-free and can of course make smoothies and other frozen treats, but you can put hot ingredients in it too, so he’ll be whipping up homemade soups in no time.

From Amazon Explore comes this amazing virtual tour that will take you to Munich’s churches, historical landmarks, and of course, beer gardens.

his lawn game blends strategy and skill as teams work to knock down the wood blocks by underhand tossing other blocks at them. It’s fun for people of all ages and because the blocks don’t need to be dug into the lawn (like a badminton net, for example) it’s easier on the grass than other games.
28 A Game For Nintendo Switch
If dad already has a Nintendo Switch, get him the Mario Kart game to go with it. It’s everything he loves about the original plus new features like exclusive characters and the ability to compete online against friends. Plus it’s the rare video game that’s appropriate and fun for everyone in the family.
29 Comfy Joggers
