Father’s Day falls on June 18 this year, and it’ll be here before you know it. But luckily, you still have time to find the best possible gift for Dad or that father figure in your life — and there are plenty of amazing Father’s Day gift options, no matter your budget.

We’ve assembled a number of great gift ideas here at a variety of prices, including several that cost less than $100 and some for even less than $50 (our picks are listed from least to most expensive). And if you really want to go all out, we’ve got some pricier picks that I’m sure he’ll appreciate. All of the selected products have been fully reviewed or anecdotally tested by CNET editors. 

Under $50

If you’re on the hunt for a decent pair of budget sunglasses, Knockaround has various models, including those with polarized and mirrored coatings, for $25 and even slightly less (prices start as low as $15). They’re not premium glasses obviously, but the lenses are pretty decent and the glasses look more expensive than their low price would indicate. These designer sunglasses also seem pretty durable. Several different styles, colors and lens options are available.

Gerber makes some nice multitools and its Armbar Drive is one of its most compact models, featuring eight tools: a fine-edge blade, scissors, awl, two-sided 1/4-inch bit driver, pry bar, bottle opener and hammer, all made of stainless steel (the blade is is held securely with a frame lock). I got the burnt orange model. but it also comes in blue and onyx.

With the most streaming app options and most user-friendly streaming platform interface, Roku is our favorite streaming system, and the Express 4K Plus streaming media player is arguably the best value streamer out there right now (yes, it supports 4K HDR streaming).

Also, thanks to the AirPlay update, this Roku device is one of the least expensive ways to connect your iPhone or other Apple device to your TV. Cheaper than the company’s Streaming Stick 4K Plus and other 4K HDR streaming devices, it’s our top pick for best streaming device overall.

Small JBL Go 3 speaker resting on a table near a stack of books.

The JBL Go 3’s durable design, coupled with surprisingly decent sound for its tiny size, make it one of the top micro Bluetooth speakers out there.

Available in multiple color options, it has an IP67 water-resistance rating, meaning it can be dunked in water and is dust-proof. Battery life is rated at up to 5 hours.

What makes these Soundpeats Air3 Deluxe HS buds special is that they sound surprisingly good for open earbuds — they’re pretty close to what you get from Apple’s AirPods 3 for sound. On top of that, they support Sony’s LDAC audio codec for devices that offer it. Not too many cheap open earbuds have good sound but these Soundpeats have good bass response and clarity. They’re also good for making calls and have a low-latency gaming mode. Battery life is rated at 5 hours at moderate volume levels, and these are IPX4 splash-proof. 

Clip the on-page coupon to get an additional 15% off, bringing the price down to $43 — a very good deal if you’re looking for open-style earbuds.

blendjet 2

David Carnoy/CNET

There’s nothing like a little blending on the go for dear old Dad’s protein shakes. That’s where the BlendJet 2 comes in. Equipped with a rechargeable battery, it’s more powerful than you might expect and it can whip up smoothies without having to plug in anywhere. It charges via USB-C (you get about 15 blends per charge) and is fully waterproof.

The Baseus Magnetic Mini Wireless Charger is a great value

David Carnoy/CNET

The Baseus magnetic mini wireless portable charger is a compact 6,000-mAh wireless power bank that sticks to the back of MagSafe-enabled iPhones (or MagSafe-enabled iPhone cases) and charges your iPhone at 7.5 watts. If you’re looking for faster charging, you can plug a USB-C-to-Lightning cable into the battery and get 20-watt charging speeds. It also offers pass-through charging, so you can charge the Baseus’ battery while charging your phone. 

The battery is similar in size to many 5,000-mAh batteries and also costs less. That 6,000-mAh capacity will get you close to a full charge with most iPhones, though it may fall a bit short for iPhone Max models.

The Soundcore by Anker Mini 3 is fully waterproof

David Carnoy/CNET

The very compact Soundcore by Anker Mini 3 Bluetooth speaker may not deliver huge sound but it delivers more sound than you’d think (with just enough bass) from a speaker of its size. Available in multiple color options and weighing around 8 ounces or 223 grams, it has an integrated strap and is fully waterproof with an IPX7 rating.

The 6-watt Mini 3 sounds fairly similar to the new , which retails for $60 or around $20 more, and features good battery life — up to 15 hours at moderate volume levels. You can wirelessly link multiple Mini 3s together to create a wider sound field, but most people will use this speaker for casual listening on the go. It also makes for a good bathroom or shower speaker and does have speakerphone capabilities with a built-in microphone.

reef sandals

Reef makes a variety of sandals, flips-flops and slides with prices ranging from $30 to $75. While the premium models feature leather uppers, some Reef sandals have a key feature that certain dads will appreciate: a built-in bottle opener.
