Father’s Day is just around the corner, which means you’re probably on the hunt for the perfect gift as a small token of your love and appreciation. But finding a fitting gift that your dad will actually use is not always an easy task. To help you out, we’ve compiled a list of some of the coolest Father’s Day gifts out there for your outdoorsy dad.

A Good Sun Hat

The North Face Horizon Breeze Brimmer Hat | REI Co-op

Every outdoorsman needs a quality sun hat to keep them cool and to keep the sun’s rays from damaging their skin. Does your dad need a good hat for outdoor exploring and yard mowing? Check out North Face’s Horizon Breeze Brimmer Hat. The mesh venting with overlay lets air in to keep the head cool while offering UPF 50 sun protection. An elastic sweatband will keep him dry and the adjustable, removable drawcord lets you customize the fit. 

Price: $35.00 at REI

Motion Sickness Relief Band

Reliefband® Classic

This isn’t necessarily a fun gift, but it’s one that your dad will really appreciate if he’s prone to motion sickness. Thousands of users swear by Reliefband, the wearable motion sickness relief and prevention device. If riding in an RV or sitting on a boat tends to leave him queasy, get him this fashionable number so he can enjoy his time outdoors. 

Price: $99.99 ($199.99 for Reliefband Premier) at Reliefband

Insulated Thermos

Everyone has a Yeti nowadays, but the classic insulated thermos isn’t obsolete. This vacuum-insulated Stanley Classic Legendary holds 1.5 quarts of liquid, keeping it hot or cold for 24 hours. It has a leak-proof easy pour stopper, making it ideal for those dads who love to take their coffee to go. 

Price: $29.99 at Academy

Portable Espresso Maker

If your dad prefers a coffee-based drink to fill up that insulated thermos, consider a portable espresso maker. Wacaco Minipresso weighs less than a pound and presses out cafe-grade espresso for all of your favorite drinks, including lattes and Americanos. It’s perfect for those fathers out there who love their morning cup o’ joe. 

Price: $49.90 at Wacoco

Solar Lantern

Nothing’s more frustrating than running out of batteries or propane for your lantern when you’re out camping. Solar lanterns take care of this problem by using the sun’s energy to charge the battery by day, giving you plenty of juice to light up a campsite at night. 

Price: $25.00 on LuminAID


You can never have too many sources of light, which is why we are suggesting another bright gift: a quality headlamp. Headlamps free up the hands and ensure whatever you’re looking at is illuminated. This Black Diamond Spot 350 headlamp won the 2020 REI Award and was chosen as the best value headlamp by Clever Hiker. With a longer burn time and an even brighter LED than previous models, your adventurous dad can be out and about for hours.

Price: $39.95 at Black Diamond Equipment

Dutch Oven

Amazon.com: Camp Chef Classic 12" Dutch Oven: Sports & Outdoors

From slow roasts to fruit cobblers, the Dutch oven is a lifesaver when it comes to outdoor cooking. The Camp Chef 12” Dutch oven will expand your dad’s menu further with a lid that doubles as a full-sized skillet. This dutch oven can truly do it all!

Price: $61.00 at Camp Chef

Annual Parks Pass 

Give your father the gift of access to beautiful sights and attractions of the United States. The America the Beautiful Annual Pass admits pass owners and their passengers (not to exceed four adults) to thousands of federally managed lands. This includes personal cars, rentals, and RVs.
