The 2024 FREDERIC Father’s Day Gift Guide

What do you call a person who is not a dad who makes dad jokes? A Faux Pa.

June 1, 2024

Let’s hear it for the dads: Whether they’re helping to shape our interest in art and music, teaching us how to swing a golf club or whip up a gourmet meal, or just plain being there when we need them most, our fathers (and father figures) help make us who we are. And while we think they’re worth celebrating every day of the year, Father’s Day is our annual excuse to get extra sentimental about it. So go ahead and wrap up one of our editor-approved Father’s Day gift picks from the list below, grab a cheesy card, and prepare for a big, teary hug.
