Wondering what to get the dad who has everything? If you’re thinking of buying him another tie this Father’s Day, let me just stop you right now — that’s not it sis.
The holiday, which is meant to shower dads with love and appreciation, is also an opportunity to help them discover (or re-discover) their passions and what they truly love. So if your dad has been throwing down in the kitchen (and on the grill) all these years, it’s safe to say that you can come through with kitchen upgrades that will make his day. Why? Because if dad loves to cook, these gifts are not only useful, but they’re functional, practical and also show dad you truly thought about his needs this Father’s Day.
Below, we’ve rounded up a few gift ideas that you can order online for every type of foodie dad — from the grill master, to the cocktail connoisseur.

Thai Chef’s Moon Knife
Gift your dad who loves to cook a new knife this Father’s Day! This lightweight, carbon steel Moon Knife (named for its round shape) allows for a longer cut.

It’s a dream for cutting through meat and bone, as well as hard-skinned fruit (like watermelon).
Pampered Chef Cast Iron Skillet Set
Dad has been throwing down for years, so it’s only right that you upgrade his kitchen equipment this Father’s Day. What makes the Pampered Chef Cast Iron Skillet Set especially amazing is that it comes pre seasoned, so he can start using them as soon as he takes it out the box. Not to mention their natural, nonstick surfaces get better the more you use them.
Verve Culture Handblown Glasses
These glasses are perfect for drinking water, juices, tea, and most importantly — adding a pop of color to your dining table. They are also made from recycled glassware by artisans in Mexico.

Glassblowing is an art that takes up to 20 years to master, and Javier’s team has glassblowers of different skill levels.
