Finding the perfect Father’s Day gift for the dad (or father figure) in your life can feel intimidating. For some reason, dads (and actually men in general) can feel so difficult to shop for. They either never tell you what they really want, or they ask for something obscure or strange that you can’t find. If you feel totally stuck on what to get but you want to show your dad some love for the holiday, consider a premade Father’s Day gift basket. Packed with an assortment of products like food, drinks, or accessories, gift baskets are a fun present and make shopping easy.

You can, of course, put together your own Father’s Day gift basket, but this is definitely more of a time consuming project. If you don’t have the time or energy to do it, buying one that’s already done is so much more convenient and still just as thoughtful. There are lots of options out there, so pick a basket that is full of things you know your dad will use and love. This might be a basket of different snacks, a collection of items for cocktail hour at home, or some self-care products to promote some much-needed relaxation. We’ve included some of our favorite Father’s Day gift baskets below.

We at Romper only include products that have been independently selected by our editors. We may receive a portion of sales if you purchase a product through a link in this article.


For the hot sauce-obsessed

Another reasonably priced item, the Dad’s Spicy Box Of Champions is such a great gift idea for the dad in your life who can’t get enough spicy stuff. It includes over $60 worth of award-winning hot sauces, so you’re getting a great deal with the $50 price point. Inside, you’ll find Sweet Heat Gourmet Roasted Jalapeno or Seafire Diosa Verde, Lucky Dog Cherry Chipotle, Dirty Dicks Hot Sauce or Pepplish Provisions Peach Agave Hot Sauce, Ghost Scream Hot Sauce or Charman Original Hot Sauce, and Hellfire Ritual Hot Sauce or Hellfire Fiery Fool. It’s a mix of hot, medium, and mild sauces.


For the beef jerky lover

Man Crates is known for the unusual way they ship their items. This Primal Hunger Crate is no exception. It comes packaged in a sealed wooden crate with a laser-etched crowbar to crack it open, making it really fun to unwrap. Inside, they’ll find Whiskey Hill Smokehouse Bison Jerky, Whiskey Hill Smokehouse Venison Jerky, Chef’s Cut Beef Jerky, Field Trip Cracked Pepper Turkey Jerky, butter toffee almonds, and chili citrus cashews. It’s the perfect mix of savory and sweet, and it’s really the ideal gift for the guy who can’t get enough beef jerky. You might want to sneak some too!


For the dad who appreciates a good skin care routine

A lot of Father’s Day gift baskets are filled with snacks, drinks, and things like that. This one is different because it’s all about self-care, which dads need just as much as moms. This Self Care Package from Etsy is a thoughtful way to encourage some relaxation, which is probably much-needed. Inside, you’ll find a whiskey scented candle, charcoal soap, mud soap bar, heel balm, hand balm, shea butter lip balm, two shower steamers, and a handy soap coaster.

For the foodie

For the dad who is constantly snacking, a basket full of food is a great gift that he’ll definitely enjoy.

Golfing seems like basically every man’s favorite hobby right now, so if you want to get the dad in your life the perfect Father’s Day gift basket, this just might be it. The Hole In One basket is made with golfers in mind (so, that said, if he doesn’t golf, this won’t be quite right) and is really beautifully curated. It comes with a P.F.
