15 Father's Day Gift Baskets To Really Wow Your DadEmily Way/Taste of Home, VIA MERCHANT (3)

Father’s Day is quickly approaching, with this year’s dad-centric celebration falling on Sunday, June 16, 2024. Gift baskets are an easy yet thoughtful way to show Dad how much you love and appreciate him this Father’s Day. And there are some really unique Father’s Day gift basket options out there for men that you can order online and have shipped right to your own (or Dad’s) doorstep.

“Gift baskets have remained a popular choice for gift-giving for centuries. Their ability to adapt over time, along with their versatility in content and design, make them the best choice for gifting to people of all ages,” says VP of Brand and Creative Strategy at GourmetGiftBaskets.com Erin Hager.

According to Eric, food gift baskets in particular make a solid option for Father’s Day. “When there are no words, you can always count on food! Giving the gift of food creates an experience that allows people to share moments and memories, connecting them to a feeling of comfort or nostalgia,” he says.

Whether he loves grilling a thick, juicy steak, indulging in decadent cookies or sipping high-end whiskey, these are the best Father’s Day gift baskets of 2024, chosen and vetted by our editorial staff.

If Dad believes dessert should be its own food group, he’ll want to dive head first into this drool-worthy basket of sweet treats. It’s filled with some of Harry and David‘s most popular baked goods. He’ll love indulging in double chocolate chunk cookies, honey-filled baklava and lemon poppy seed coffee cake, to name just a few.

“The desserts inside are fresh, and the variety is perfect for sharing—or secretly hoarding!” says Editor Emily Way, who sampled the assortment. “It’s such a sweet way to show dad you’re thinking of him.”

For the Meat Lover

Porter Road

There’s no denying that steak makes for one of the best Father’s Day gifts. But why settle for one when you could give dad a whole platter of cuts? Enter this carnivore-approved meat delivery service, where you can send assortments with the meat of your choosing. Inclusions feature dry aged steaks, bacon, chorizo sausage and more.

“We tried a wide assortment from the brand, including ground chorizo, chicken breasts, pork chops, ribeye steaks, bacon, burgers and breakfast sausage,” says James Beard-nominated cookbook author Allison Robicelli in her review of the service. “Each cut was deeply flavorful and cooked up beautifully. The steak browned nicely using a reverse-sear method, and the bacon was meaty—well worth the calories! We were also impressed with the breakfast sausage.”

For the Caffeine Fiend

Coffee Pods

If Dad appreciates a high quality cup but simply doesn’t have the time to dedicate to intensive brewing methods, snag him a month’s worth of coffee pods from Cometeer. Brewed by expert baristas and flash frozen for freshness, these concentrates ship cold to his door and keep in the freezer. When he’s ready for a hot or cold cafe-style cup, he simply needs to melt them and mix with water or milk.

“On first sip, I was pleasantly surprised,” says Senior Editor Katie Bandurski in her review of Cometeer. “This cup could have come from a coffee shop. It was rich, bodied and had a nuanced flavor I would never expect from near-instant coffee.”

Dads that love experimenting in the kitchen always appreciate a new cooking method. Enter: The hot pot starter set from the chili crisp experts at Fly By Jing. The gift set comes perfectly portioned for two people and includes a dual set of chopsticks, serving ladles with slotted sides and a hot pot with flexible temperature controls and a tight-fitted lid. These spicy food gift baskets also arrive with two packages of spicy hot pot base, enough for four servings of hot pot. Just add dad’s favorite veggies, noodles and proteins for a filling and wholesome meal.

“The reusable hot pot makes this a thoughtful gift that keeps giving even after Dad finishes off his spicy bases,” says Emily. “I suggest bundling this pick with the brand’s classic sauce trio, which includes the chili crisp Fly by Jing is famous for!”

Aged and Charred Cocktail Smoker Kit

Add a kick to Dad’s drinks with this whiskey smoker kit, which comes with an assortment of wood chips that impart complex, smoky flavors with the use of an included butane torch.

“The butane torch filled up and operated flawlessly,” says Emily of this cocktail kit. “It’s super satisfying charring up the wood chips and watching the smoke drop into the glass. From there, just pop the lid on top of the smoking block to seal in the flavor for a few minutes. The result? A deliciously smoky cocktail with notes of Applewood, cherry, hickory or oak.”
