Father’s Day is coming up this weekend, and we’re looking forward to a fun-filled day celebrating our favorite guys. After a year in lockdown, celebrating holidays this year feels extra special. The pressure is on, however, to find the perfect gift that is unique to both personality and preference. 

All the dads deserve something heartfelt and, well, rad. Whether its your biological dad, the dad that raised you, a family member, an incredible mentor, your child’s dad, or any other man that has stepped up to the plate, I’ve scoured the internet and local stores to find some cool stuff for every kind of dad. Check out my list below of the best unique gifts for Father’s Day! 


Father’s Day Gifts For The Camping Dad


Shades Of Green Rechargeable Pocket Lighter

Rechargeable Pocket Lighter

This lighter is super, super cool. My guy loves camping and we head out into nature whenever we can. This gadget has been a total game-changer for us, as it works in the wind and hard-to-reach places! Rechargeable and butane-free, it can be used up to 300 times in a single charge. 300 times!!! When you do need to charge it, just throw it on a USB cable and it’s fully ready to go for another 300 in just 90 minutes. Get yours here.

Purity Organic

If you know a dad that loves to enjoy a cup of tea by the campfire, or needs some extra hydration while enjoying the sunny outdoors, Purity Organic Tea makes a line of premium, organic CBD teas that would be perfect for him! Your camper can use the sun-tea method and stick a couple of bags into a Nalgene to sit out in the sun for a few hours to create a refreshing treat wherever they may be pitching their tent that day. No THC involved! Find them here

High Camp Flasks

High Camp Firelight 750 Flask

Got a dad who loves to camp? This flask is one unique gift for Father’s Day that’ll leave him smiling from ear-to-ear. Clocking in at a backpacking-friendly 29oz, this slender 3-piece bar set includes two 6-Shooter Tumblers and a 750ml Vacuum Insulated Flask that all fit together thanks to some magnetic magic. It’s large enough to fit an entire fifth of dad’s favorite spirit, a full bottle of wine, or even some chilled CBD iced tea. Double-walled and vacuum insulated, it works great for both hot and cold beverages. You can even customize it to make the perfect gift for dad! Grab yours here



The Finnish Long Drink

I haven’t been surprised by a drink in a long time the way I was surprised by The Finnish Long Drink. I’m not typically a gin drinker, so I wasn’t expecting to enjoy this gin-based spritzer. My husband was the first of us to crack one open and with eyes wide, he motioned for me to take a sip. I did, and well, nothing has ever hit the spot quite like this surprising canned cocktail. It tastes kind of like Squirt, but with alcohol and more floral. I can imagine no better day than sitting in my camping chair enjoy a couple of these bad boys in the shade! Find out the legend of The Long Drink (and where to buy it), here

The Finnish Long Drink


These canned cocktails pack a serious punch! Small, portable, and in a recyclable can, they are great for camping (especially those who like to pack light), because their small size doesn’t sacrifice on taste nor potency. My husband loves their White Russian! A traditional camping cocktail in our family, it makes enjoying our favorite possible without lugging along all those perishable ingredients. Find your favorite drink here.


Father’s Day Gifts For The PRIDEful Parent

Aura Hair Care


Pride month is here, and if your person celebrates, I highly recommend the fun and inventive gift of AURA’s personalized color tinting conditioners and conditioning hair masques. I use them frequently, and love how intimate and tailored the customization process is (my vanity also enjoys naming the bottles).  These colorful hair looks are a fun way to celebrate (and will get the kids giggling).  AURA is the first and only personalized hair care brand with temporary pigment options. AURA has something for all hair types and can be delivered straight to your door. You can choose and tweak your formula to address your individual hair needs and goals, and even name your products (like ‘Pride Weekend Hair’ or ‘Pride Purple’ for example)!  Learn more (and maybe get yourself a bottle or two) here



Father’s Day Gifts For The Grilling Dad


The High Water Shirt by California Cowboy

The High Water Shirt by California Cowboy

This is the ultimate Dad shirt. Called a “wearable happy hour kit, it features custom designed floral prints, water-absorbent terry-cloth lining, plus special pockets for your phone and a frosty beverage. You may think the terry-cloth lining would be too hot for summer, but you’re wrong. My dude gets sweaty, especially during the SoCal summer. This shirt helped keep him cool and sweat-stain free while at the Traeger last weekend, which is a pretty solid testimony. Don’t like terry-lining? Try the High Water Tropic! Same great features, no lining. Buy it here



My new favorite drink for summer, Volley is a tequila-based seltzer that just recently hit the shelves. Made with just three ingredients – 100% blue agave tequila, sparkling water and organic juice, it’s the first clean, tequila seltzer on the market. At only 100-110 calories per can, it’s the perfect sidekick to a hot day on the grill. Make his day and get your dad a pack (or two!) We recommend two. This stuff is goooood. (And you’ll want some too). Find it here

‘Merican Mule

There’s nothing more American than a dad at the grill, and this ‘Merican Mule is the perfect accompaniment. A Connecticut-based, premium, canned cocktail brand that just launched, they actually offer a cocktail variety pack for Mules of all type: Moscow Mule (vodka), Mexican Mule (tequila), Southern Mule (bourbon) and Tropical Mule (rum). Find them here

Father’s Day Gifts For The Cocktail Dad


Fresh Victor 

My husband LOVES these. Honestly, so do my kids. Before your freak out, they are non-alcoholic. Premium juices crafted into seven different blends for both cocktails and mocktails, I really can’t emphasize how tasty and tidy these juices are. They work for any cocktail, and make for an amazing drinking experience! If you’ve got a cocktail-lover in your life, these would be a gift that impresses. Shop here


Wellfounded Botanicals

This eco-friendly cannabis wellness brand just hit the market, launching a premium line of easy-dose tinctures that’s great for the eco-conscious dad that’s looking for restoration, relief, or relaxation. Grown free from pesticides, the cannabis mother plants that make up each bottle florist on an independently owned 63-acre organic farm. These tinctures are great alone, or mixed into a drink for a refreshing summer mocktail. My husband loves their RELAX 1:5 mix – 200mg of CBD and 1000mg of THC per 30mL bottle –  to alleviate pain and aid in sleep. You can also try their RESTORE 20:1 blend and their RELIEF 1:1, based on dosage preference. Check them out here. They make for a delicious cocktail that packs a buzz but is alcohol-free!

LiveWire Drinks

LiveWire Drinks

Award-winning canned cocktails specially crafted by award-winning bartenders, LiveWire is an excellent gift for not only those who enjoy a good drink, but want to support local bartenders and art. Each can has a unique design based on their curator, and each recipe has been concocted by a respected bartender. My husband especially loved the Rocket Queen by Erin Hayes:  a seamless combination of Magdalena Rum®, red pomelo, cinnamon, pandan, and absinthe. Learn more here.

Canned Vodka Transfusion

Canned cocktail champ Cutwater Spirits’ has partnered with PGA TOUR Player Harold Varner III (HV3) to create the true golfer’s cocktail. Meant to be enjoyed at golf course bars and country clubs around the world – and let’s be honest, anywhere you want. “For years, the Transfusion has been my go-to cocktail to enjoy after a day on the course. And Cutwater’s Transfusion is great, with a nice little kick from the ginger beer and just the right amount of carbonation! As a guy who prefers drinking a cocktail to making one, I especially love the ease and convenience of enjoying my favorite mixed drink in a can,” says Harold Varner III. “Now, I can toss them into a cooler and go – it doesn’t get better than that!” Cutwater’s Transfusion features award-winning Cutwater Vodka, Ginger Beer and real grape juice. Find out where to buy it at the end of June here

Father’s Day Gifts For The Dad That Needs To Relax


CBD Bath Salts from Life Elements

CBD Bath Salts from Life Elements

Tune dad into his inner-self this Father’s Day with Lunar CBD Bath Salts. Made for moon bathing rituals and intention-setting, with a blend of essential oils to promote deep meditation and relaxation. With ingredients like magnesium, oatmeal, CBD, patchouli, palo santo, frankincense, sage and ylang-ylang, a good soak will vibe him out and help him renew in the way he needs. Buy them here


I love Amass for several reasons, one of them being that they are a local business that powered through the pandemic by briefly pivoting from distilling gin to rapidly producing hand sanitizer when there was a dire need for it. They’ve further branched out, now creating botanical-based items including The Art of Staying In candle. Scented with grapefruit, light florals and cozy woods, it’s a great way to help your dude settle his spirit after a long day. 


22Red is awesome for many reasons, particularly its inception. Founded by System Of A Down bassist Shavo Odadjian, 22Red CBD tinctures and vapes have none of the psychoactive effects of cannabis, but provide the relaxing punch of cannabinoids. Flavors including mint, watermelon, strawberry sorbet and cereal killer. I can speak from personal experience that their watermelon flavor is super yummy. Find a California store near you here

There’s nothing more chill than a tasty joint, and High 90’s delivers big time. Their unique blend of flavored pre-rolls make a great gift for the dad that needs some time to himself, with 8 flavor varieties and 1,200mgs of 30 – 40% THC. Encourage dad to kick back this Father’s Day and get him a few here

Hydrology9 NX

Hydrology9 NX

This is, quite literally, the most insane thing I’ve ever seen. Other reviews have said “it’s like the Dyson of vapes,” and that’s a pretty solid description. A flower and concentrate vaporizer, what sets this vape apart (other than its cool look), is that it’s a modular water filtered vape. With a switchable concentrate atomizer and a hybrid convection flower heating chamber, this badass piece really does do it all. Best part? The smoke is fine and discreet. Great for a dad who loves to get down! Check it out here




Father’s Day Gifts For The Outdoorsy Dad


High West

High West American Prairie Bourbon

If the dad in your life loves the outdoors, then he’ll love this bourbon. High West Distillery launched Prairie Dash, a limited-time mobile game crafted in support of long-time partner and non-profit organization, American Prairie.

Helmand Valley Growers Company

Of the bat, you should know that this is a great company to support. They recently released a line of potent, high-THC pre-rolls in indica, sativa, and hybrid strains. All of the profits from these pre-rolls go to the Battle Brothers Foundation, which helps fund studies on how cannabis can help treat PTSD and pain in veterans, taking a holistic approach to helping soldiers return to civilian life.

Their Two Woods series is a limited edition series that shines a spotlight on the rare, native trees that are quickly being depleted from the country’s rainforests – many for cachaça use. “Novo Fogo’s commitment to sustainability and environmentally sound practices has been quite literally embedded in the earth that grows our sugarcane since we founded the company,” explains Dragos Axinte, Founder and CEO, Novo Fogo Cachaça. “This is because of where Novo Fogo comes from: our distillery and sugarcane farm are in the largest protected patch of Brazil’s Atlantic Forest. Despite its enormous biodiversity, 88% of the Atlantic Forest has been lost to deforestation and degradation. We produce cachaça in this precious ecosystem, so we have an obligation to practice agricultural and production methods that aren’t detrimental to the natural and human communities that call this place home.” It’s a wonderful and unique gift that’ll not only impress dad, but support a great cause.
