Okay, so it might be a little late to get this gift card out in time (although orders usually ship in two business days). And, yes, some would say that gift cards are rather mundane fare. But if it's the thought that counts, Man Crates has definitely put in the brainwork to turn the everyday into an experience. With these uniquely packaged cards, Dad will get to smash or puzzle-solve his way to the present inside. Gift card options cover a wide range of stores he'll likely love, including Advance Auto Parts, Home Depot, Bass Pro Shops, REI, and Petco.

Still a gift card, but with a twist: You're giving a once-in-a-lifetime experience of Dad's choice. Virgin offers everything from hot-air balloon rides to wine tasting to the chance to get behind the wheel of a race car or take flying lessons.

Did you know that Amazon has jumped into the experiential gift game? If your favorite guy can't travel to his dream destination, why not send him on a virtual exploration instead? Amazon Explore connects adventure seekers with travel guides, cooking instructors, and even local creatives and business owners for journeys of discovery — all from the comfort of home. On the Explore section of the site, you can find something that'll intrigue just about any father or globally-minded grandpa, whether it's a city tour (haunted Prague definitely sounds promising), an exploration of exotic flora and fauna, or a live lesson on how to make Argentinian empanadas.

MasterClass Course

$15/month and up from MasterClass

Shop Now


Whether Dad's celebrity-obsessed or just loves learning, a subscription to MasterClass and its expert-led courses could be the gift that keeps on giving. Each class includes an average of 20 lessons, but they aren't a huge time commitment at roughly 10 minutes a pop. The gift membership offers a full year of access to the entire MasterClass library. Your father can fill his time with a filmmaking class facilitated by Martin Scorsese or Spike Lee, learn creative writing from Malcolm Gladwell or Margaret Atwood, or drop in on a chess lesson from Garry Kasparov or a jam session with Carlos Santana.

Omaha Steaks Steak Box

$130 and up from Omaha Steaks

Another option for a grillmaster dad is to gift him with some meat by mail, which Omaha Steaks has been successfully doing for decades. The company offers monthly, bi-monthly, and quarterly steak box plans with up to eight steaks in each. If your father's a fan of more variety, there are other meat-packed packages, many of which, like the Deluxe Father's Day Gift Package, come complete with a mix of proteins, sides, desserts, and more. We also like Omaha's Comfort Food Packages — because sending your pop a freezer full of lasagna, shepherd's pie, pot roast, fried chicken, and pub-style cod is basically the food version of a hug, right?
