While we honor our fathers and dad-figures every day, Father's Day is a universal way to celebrate all that they mean to us.

Of course, nothing beats quality time (but, a good gift doesn't hurt, either). That's why the New York Post Shopping team extensively researched and combed through the thousands of items you can order online and cherry-picked the 62 best Father's Day gift ideas of 2023 for you to browse and add to your cart. (Related: Best Father's Day Gifts on Amazon).

From handy tool boxes and sets to handsome-looking polos, our picks are unique and suited for every budget — and every type of dad. If he's your household's go-to pool boy, there's an outdoor pick for him, too.

Not to mention, we also included a second item each of our individual products would pair well with (for example, the classic Sperry boat shoes and the brand's matching socks). With a matching item, it makes this year's present a bit more cohesive and festive.

Ahead, take a look at all of the options we’re currently adding to our carts and sending to our friends IRL. Whether you’re shopping for your grandfather, dad, best friend (or hey, even yourself), rest assured that we carved out the hard part: the answer to the question, "what's a Father's Day gift he’ll actually like?"

Be sure to check out the best last-minute Father's Day gifts we rounded up, too, in case you’re in a serious pinch (though most of these options will arrive well before the upcoming holiday weekend).

Let's start with something super practical. For the dad who loves driving his car, you can't put a price on protecting his cherished vehicle, either. That's why we recommend CarShield Auto Protection. Depending on your budget, you can gift dad a custom plan that’ll save him a pretty penny in the long run, should his four-wheeler break down.

For a Father's Day splurge he may not purchase for himself, the lululemon Evolution Short-Sleeve Polo Shirt is a wonderful gift to grab for less than $100. Namely, its neutral color selection and generous size range are both impressive, with this particular men's polo featuring a slim-fit design and sweat-wicking fabric.

All of our eyes are on the Samsung Galaxy Watch5 Aluminum Smartwatch. For $50 off right now, he’ll appreciate this sophisticated, modern take on his usual watch.

The Personalized Masonic Emblem Money Clip is a practical gift for Father's Day that he’ll appreciate, especially if he doesn't want to carry around a full-blown wallet. Affordable gift idea, unlocked.

Shop the Fitbit Sense 2 Advanced Health Smartwatch that's $70 off just in time for your next Father's Day pick-up. With a cool face and match-all look, it's a great tech buy for any type of dad.

OK, if you’re at a loss at what to get grandpa, fear no more — the Anecdote Candles Grandpa's Cardigan Black Pepper & Birch Candle is hand-picked for your shopping cart. According to the brand, it "smells like old world charm with a modern edge," and that's all that matters.

Allow the dad in your life to try new cocktail blends and spirits with Minibar's Alcohol Delivery. Prices vary depending on your location and what's in your cart, and it's one of New York Post Shopping's favorite online grab-and-go delivery services.

Plus, take $10 off orders of $75 of more with our exclusive code THENYPOST10 at checkout.

For the dad who loves quality, unique items with a bit of flair, Flint and Tinder's best-selling Flannel-Lined Waxed Trucker Jacket is exactly what he needs. Namely, you’ll fall in love with all of its color options, appreciate its well-made and weather-resistant sailcloth (with a fabulous denim feel) and wear it all year round.

We’re a little too in love with Huckberry's exclusive Olsen Bath Bundle — one of its best-sellers. This quality bath set includes two bath towels, two hand towels and two face towels for the upgraded stock-up you didn't know dad needed. Plus, its 100% long-stapled cotton is oh-so-dreamy — in any color.

We must say, we’re big fans of DL1961 for creating high-quality, flattering and classic denim for a variety of styles and sizes. For Father's Day, pick up the brand's Russell Slim Straight Jeans that are sustainable and made in-house. That said, check yes on this years-lasting pair for your loved one.

We’re already eyeing what appears to be the most relaxing and self care-surrounding Father's Day gifts you can buy. Shop the top-rated Snailax Shiatsu Heated Massage Cushion for $100 and nearly 17,000 rave reviews. With adjustable massage nodes and soothing heat therapy, it's one we’re glossing over.

Because Father's Day is in June, we can't help but want to spoil our dads rotten with the best summertime grabs, like the Reef Draftsman Leather Sandals. Just shy of $75, this well-made pair is applauded by nearly 1,500 satisfied shoppers who love an easy, sunny-day slip-on.

Even cooler, they double as a bottle opener!

For a sentimental gift that dad will cherish for ages, the Knock Knock What I Love About Dad Fill-in-the-Blank Book is one we’ve personally given in the past and is just under $15. Say less.

Splurge on dad this Father's Day with one of the best names in the grill industry. Weber's Genesis E-325 Liquid Propane Gas Grill is nearly 15% off just in time for the peak of summer (not to mention, we’re already dreaming about that lovely char on our shrimp and burgers).

There's something about a beverage bucket that just screams Father's Day. They’re practical, perfect for summer and excellent for entertaining — what's not to love? Shop the YETI Rambler Beverage Bucket that comes fully clad with a lid and is ultra-durable, so much so that it can haul a six-pack of wine.

For the dad who's all about fitness (or, rather, wants to get into fitness), shop the Fitbit Versa 4 Fitness Smartwatch, the model with more than 3,000 rave reviews on Amazon for its "amazing features" — like tracking sleep patterns and steps — and "user-friendly design."

The father who loves quality olive oil and whipping up new dishes in the kitchen, the Brightland Lucid Lemon-Infused Extra Virgin Olive Oil makes for a lovely gift for less than $50. Particularly, this is a 100% lemon olive oil infused with early-harvest Frantoio olives.

Not to mention, we reviewed Brightland and still use it for all of our kitchen creations.

For less than $75, the lululemon T.H.E. Linerless Short 9″ is one of our favorite options to grab, much ado to the pair's lightweight, swift fabric and wide color variety. Plus, they’re a pair of shorts you can live in pretty much all summer.

Meet the ultimate Father's Day selection: the Rastelli's Burger Sampler. Just shy of $100, the delectable bundle of steak craft burgers, 100% grass-fed steak craft burgers, short rib burgers and Wagyu burgers is sure to make dad super happy when out on his grill. All burgers ship frozen unless stated otherwise.

One of the most popular gifts among our readers is, hands down, the YETI Hopper Flip 12 Soft Cooler. Though a splurge, it's the only outdoor cooler dad will need, fully clad with a leakproof design, trusty hardware and wide-mouth opening for easy loading.

There's always a loved one you know who has an obsession with hot sauce. Instead of gifting them a new bottle, take their gift one step farther with w&p's The Homemade Hot Sauce Kit. It's the perfect gift idea for less than $50 and, inside, you’ll find two Chili Lab blends that offer hot pepper ingredients so you can DIY.

For the dad who's an avid golfer, you can't go wrong with a newly minted pair of adidas Tech Response Spikeless Golf Shoes. As a No. 1 Amazon best-seller with nearly 5,500 reviews, it's a show-stopper for its breathability and comfort.

As one of the most unique Father's Day gifts on this list, the Personalization Mall Personalized Plano Tackle Fishing Box is one of the most meaningful, too, especially to add to the fishing corner of his shed or garage. With some fishing-themed add-ons (like bait and tackle), you have yourself a supreme gift.

True story: we gifted our fathers the Abercrombie 3-Pack Essential Long-Sleeve Tee and now, it's the only work-from-home shirt they’ll wear. For $70, this black, white and gray trio is one he's sure to appreciate.

When in doubt, grab an UNTUCKit Shirt for a premium dress shirt-style offering he’ll wear on repeat. The brand's Wrinkle-Free Performance Hawkins Shirt will be one of the nicest in his closet for date nights, family outings and other semi-formal occasions. Plus, it's one that's well-received by our family members.

As the quintessential Father's Day gift, the best-selling DEWALT 20V MAX Cordless Drill & Impact Driver is readily available, backed by a whopping 42,000+ reviews for its "well-built" and "long-lasting, durable products" and conveniently stores in this carrying case for on-the-go use.

Plus, its rechargeable OneBlade can edge, shave and trim any length of hair.

There isn't a better gift to present to the dad who's also a sports lover than the OneL Studio Best Dad Ever 3-Photo Collage Football. Not only is it personalized but it's ultra-unique, making it the perfect keepsake for either your bookcase or to play on the yard with.
