Gear Diary’s 2022 Father’s Day Gift Guide

Father’s Day is June 19, and if you’re stumped about what to give one of the most influential men in your life, check out our 2022 Father’s Day Gift Guide for an assortment of our favorite products for your consideration.

Beau Pack R1

If you’re shopping for a brand new father, consider setting him up with the $125 Beau Industries Beau Pack R1. Rather than the typical diaper bag, you’ll be giving him a carefully designed, fully-featured, and sustainably fabricated backpack with extremely comfortable ergonomics and a versatile style.

Beau Pack R1 for 2022 Father's Day Gift Guide

The R1 uses tactical-grade materials and hardware, and it has water-resistant, foam-insulated construction. The backpack comes loaded with everything a parent needs on their family adventures, including the bag, one of Beau Industries’ plush changing pads, and two insulated, water-resistant accessory pouches.

When the apple of dad’s eye is no longer wearing diapers, the Beau Pack R1 will seamlessly switch from parenting to personal use. How? The R1’s included changing pad also doubles as a padded laptop sleeve (it fits 15″ MacBook Pros and smaller laptops). The water-resistant accessory pouches can also be repurposed to carry and protect electronics.

Withings ScanWatch Horizon

As a special edition of the ScanWatch line, the $499.95 Withings ScanWatch Horizon pays homage to the Rolex Submariners that can cost tens of thousands of dollars, but it’s actually a 10ATM smartwatch loaded with state-of-the-art health-tracking technology.

Gear Diary's 2022 Father's Day Gift Guide

While it looks like and operates as a typical analog diving watch, step progress is shown in an inset analog subdial at the 6 o’clock position.

The ScanWatch Horizon will automatically track dad’s steps, workouts, sleep, and heart rate. In conjunction with the Health Mate app, it will provide valuable insights and progress data as he works toward his fitness goals. A circular notification subdial at the 12 o’clock position displays information, including the date, progress toward daily activity goals, settings, and more.

If there’s a set time that dad needs to get up each morning, ScanWatch can determine the best point during his sleep cycle to wake him with a gentle vibration. The ScanWatch can also alert dad to smartphone notifications for calls, texts, meetings, and other apps with a gentle vibration and lines of text on its subdial.

On top of that, the ScanWatch has a built-in FDA-certified and clinically validated ECG capable of detecting signs of atrial fibrillation or irregular heartbeat rhythms and a medical-grade oximeter for accurate SpO2 measurements. This watch can actually track dad’s breathing in conjunction with the ECG and SPO2 readings to measure any sleep disturbances or signs of sleep apnea.

Other ScanWatch-exclusive features include a sapphire glass crystal, a raise-to-wake display, a PMOLED subdial, climbed floor tracking, a do not disturb option, and a scrollable crown that quickly accesses the different settings and modes.

ScanWatch’s incredibly long-lasting battery can provide up to 30 days of use on a single charge, and it gives an additional 20 more days of use in power reserve mode.

Fenix HP30R V2.0 Headlamp

If the father you’re honoring is an outdoorsman, he’ll appreciate receiving the $219.95 Fenix HP30R V2.0; it’s the brightest headlamp they offer! Packing a whopping 3,000 lumens and a 60° adjustable beam angle, dad will enjoy owning a versatile hands-free light that can last for up to 120 hours when in the low Spot or Flood modes.

Fenix HP30R V2.0 Headlamp

Dad’s comfort and convenience matter! To that end, he can wear his Fenix headlamp’s battery pack attached to the lamp’s band on the back of his head, or he can wear the battery pack clipped to his hip if it feels too heavy there. When needed, the Type-C rechargeable 10,000mAh battery pack can even be used as a power source to recharge his smartphone!

The Fenix HP30R V2.0 has an IP66 dust and water resistance rating, a 6.5′ impact resistance, and a reflective headband, so it is ready for all of dad’s adventures!

Amazon Fire TV Omni Series

Available in 43″, 50″, 55″, 65″, and 75″, the 4K Amazon Fire TV Omni Series are smart TVs that will make a welcome upgrade in your dad’s man cave. Three HDMI inputs mean that cable, satellite, and video game consoles can be connected; there’s also HDMI eARC so audio equipment can be added for enhanced sound. The 65″ and 75″ models include DolbyVision for an even more cinematic experience.

Gear Diary's 2022 Father's Day Gift Guide

These TVs have built-in microphones so that they can be controlled hand-dree with Alexa; dad will be able to ask Alexa to turn on the TV, find, launch, and control his shows without having to find that pesky remote. But when he wants privacy, there’s a switch that will electronically disconnect the microphones.

Featuring the MediaTek MTK T31 chipset, the Fire TV Omni Series receives new Alexa skills, features, smart home capabilities, and voice functionality all the time. Even better, it’s affordably priced with accompanying discounts now, starting at $299.99 for the 43″ version up to the 75″ version for $749.99.


Cariloha puts a significant emphasis on sustainable practices; to that end, their fabrics are made of bamboo viscose that partners worldwide make from renewable and sustainably grown bamboo harvested from the company’s farm.

Bamboo is better for the environment than other fiber crops, as it never has to be uprooted or reseeded after harvesting, it doesn’t use harmful chemicals or herbicides, it helps retain and improve soil health, and it prevents dangerous water or chemical runoff that can pollute our oceans and waterways.

There’s nothing better than a comfortable night’s sleep, and you’ll be able to give that to dad with the adjustable, breathable support he’ll get from a Cariloha Flex Pillow.

Gear Diary's 2022 Father's Day Gift Guide

Available in Standard size for $99 and King size for $109, the Cariloha Flex Pillow can be perfectly customized to fit dad’s firmness or softness needs by adding or removing the breathable, flexible bamboo loft fill at the pillow’s center.

Whether he is a side, back, or stomach sleeper, all he has to do is adjust the center fill, and this pillow will work!

The bamboo loft fill is accessible through a zippered, ultra-soft bamboo charcoal envelope; the bamboo charcoal envelope wicks away moisture and helps repel odors, toxins, and dust mites. There’s a removable and washable quilted bamboo cover on the pillow’s exterior.

You can help dad turn achy, sleepless nights into soothing, rejuvenating sleep with the $249 Cariloha Weighted Blanket. Dad can place the 60″ x 80″ blanket on his lap, shoulders, neck, back, legs, or over his entire body to improve comfort, relaxation, and healing.

Gear Diary's 2022 Father's Day Gift Guide

At 15 pounds, the blanket is strategically weighted with glass beads to provide deep pressure touch stimulation. The inner blanket holding them is covered by a washable and removable soft bamboo-viscose fabric. Deep pressure from the blanket weight ratio will cause dad’s body to produce more serotonin and endorphins, which relaxes and calms the brain, muscles, and various body systems.

Buying dad bed, bath, and apparel items from Cariloha is a great way to treat him to Sustainable Luxury!

1 TB iStorage Datashur SD device

Give dad a unique, ultra-secure, and cost-effective way to keep his data safe with the iStorage datAshur SD. It’s the world’s first and only PIN authenticated, hardware encrypted USB flash drive that incorporates removable iStorage microSD cards available in 32 GB, 64 GB, 128GB, 256GB, 512GB, and 1 TB — instead of fixed memory.

With this system, Dad can use one datAshur SD drive with as many iStorage microSD Cards as needed, in whatever capacities, giving him unlimited encrypted data storage. When the drive is locked, all data on the iStorage microSD card is secured using AES-XTS 256-bit hardware encryption.

The datAshur SD drive is tamper-evident, meaning that if someone tries to pry it open, dad will be able to tell. It is also IP68 dust and water-resistant, shock-proof, and crush-proof, plus it has a wear-resistant keyboard so the wear on commonly used keys won’t tip off hackers.

Even if dad isn’t storing state secrets on his iStorage datAshur SD, he’ll appreciate the security! The datAshur SD drive sells for $90, and the memory cards range in price from $33 for a 32 GB iStorage microSD Card to $390 for the 1 TB iStorage microSD Card.

Shokz OpenComm Bone Conduction Stereo Bluetooth Headset

If dad likes to wear a headset for calls or video chats, but he also wants to hear what’s going on around him, he’s going to love the $159.95 Shokz OpenComm Bone Conduction Stereo Bluetooth Headset.

Gear Diary's 2022 Father's Day Gift Guide

Dan has this headset, and he says that the sound coming from the bone conduction is surprisingly good, and the boom mic makes the Shokz OpenComm perfect for work calls.

Dan says that this headset is a good fit for work as it is for play; he wears it when he’s riding his Swagtron bicycle to enjoy his music while still being fully aware of his surroundings.


As America’s favorite family-owned workwear brand, Carhartt makes durable, stylish gear to cover dad from head to toe. They have something for all the hardworking dads on your shopping list, whether they’re outdoor adventurers, DIY-lovers, or ‘Off the Clock’ relaxers. Here are some of our favorite warm-weather favorites.

Now that summer is just about here, dad will be looking for some comfortable shorts to swap out his favorite full-length pants for. The Force Relaxed Ripstop Cargo Work Short ($49.99 – $54.99) has lots of pockets, so he’ll have plenty of room for his everyday carry items.

Gear Diary's 2022 Father's Day Gift Guide

These shorts use Force technology to wick sweat and dry fast!

Depending upon where you live, mornings are probably still pretty chilly, but dad will be a pro at layering if he has the Loose Fit Midweight Logo Sleeve Graphic Sweatshirt ($49.99 – $54.99).

Gear Diary's 2022 Father's Day Gift Guide

The traditional midweight cotton blend makes for versatile layering, while Carhartt’s durability and familiar hoodie comfort mean dad can strap on his tool belt or relax with equal ease.

The waterproof Storm Defender Loose Fit Midweight Jacket  ($79.99 – $89.99) will be the difference between dad being uncomfortable in the rain or his being able to work through it all.

Gear Diary's 2022 Father's Day Gift Guide

Made of lightweight, breathable material that provides a seam-sealed barrier against the elements, the Storm Defender jacket has three pockets on the outside and drop-in pockets on the inside for dad to keep his essentials away from the rain.

If dad needs a versatile pack made of heavy-duty material that will keep his gear dry in light rain, look no further than the $69.99 Legacy Classic Work Pack.

Gear Diary's 2022 Father's Day Gift Guide

The main compartment includes a padded pocket for laptops up to 15″, and the zip pouch in front can fit easily-accessible essentials. Built to last, this backpack is reinforced on the bottom for extra strength.

TEMPUR Pillows

Do you want to know what’s cooler than the other side of the pillow? TEMPUR cooling pillows, that’s what. If dad has bought memory foam pillows because he wanted the support they offer just to complain that they made him sweat, these pillows will be perfect for him!

Gear Diary's 2022 Father's Day Gift Guide

The cooling technology in the TEMPUR-breeze° Pro + Advanced Cooling Pillow helps keep dad comfortable all night while giving his head and neck the proper support they need.

Gear Diary's 2022 Father's Day Gift Guide

Available in Hi or Lo profiles, this pillow starts at $219 for the Queen size.

The TEMPUR-Adapt Pro + Cooling Pillow is one of Tempur-Pedic’s most popular; it will precisely adapt to dad’s head, neck, and shoulders as he sleeps.

The Adapt Pro + features a removable, washable cooling cover, and it is available in Hi, Lo, and Mid.

Gear Diary's 2022 Father's Day Gift Guide

Pricing for his pillow starts at $169 for the Queen size.

Worth pointing out is that both of these TEMPUR pillows come with a 5-year limited warranty, so while these pillows may cost more than the usual cotton and fiber sacks that dad buys every few months because the last set has gone pancake flat on him, TEMPUR pillows are meant to last year after year.

In the long run, TEMPUR pillows will save money, save landfill space, and keep dad comfortable. That’s a win!

Brydge Stone Pro TB4

Gear Diary's 2022 Father's Day Gift Guide

If dad has an Apple computer you may have heard him grumbling about the lack of ports. And while Apple HAS restored some of the ports after darling with extreme minimalism, none of the computers has enough ports for all dad’s peripherals. That’s where the Brydge Stone Pro TB4 comes in.

This $329.99 dock has 11 ports, offers 90 watts of power transfer to keep even the most powerful MacBook Pro charged and facilitates transfer speeds of us to 40 GB/s. Best of all, it supports dual displays on Apple’s new M1 MAX and M1 Pro MacBooks. We love the sleek design and the ease of use, and we think dad will too!

FINIS Smart Goggle

FINIS Smart Swim Goggles

If dad is a swimmer, he’s going to love the $199 FINIS Smart Goggle! It tracks and displays his laps, splits, set time, rest time, and more while he trains. The display lives in the corner of the lens, and it can be seen at a glance, allowing him to focus on his laps. After he’s done, he can connect to the app to see a shareable breakdown of his session.

From June 6 to June 19, FINIS is offering a 20% discount on the smart goggles which retail for $199; they’ll also include a second pair of goggles so dad can alternate between them. Use the code MakeHisDay when you checkout to get the discount.

Oakley Eyewear

Whether you’re hoping to gift your dad the coolest sunnies for Father’s Day or you’re looking for a new pair to rock all summer at the beach or during your workouts, Oakley’s got you covered! For instance …

The $246 Re:SubZero is an advanced, lightweight frame made to wear during a run, training session, or whenever dad’s breaking a sweat in pursuit of self-betterment. With the application of the brand’s industry-disrupting PhysioMorphic Geometry, Re:SubZero provides dad with everything he needs to lock into the present moment and look ahead to a lighter future within a singular frame.

Gear Diary's 2022 Father's Day Gift Guide

Equipped with innovation and weighing just 24 grams, the Re:SubZero will make dad feel like he is wearing nothing, so he can channel his energy to move and progress.

The $189 Turbine cranks up the active look with interchangeable metal icon accents plus inset zones of sure-grip Unobtainium at the ear socks and nose pads for increased comfort and performance.

Gear Diary's 2022 Father's Day Gift Guide

Along with clean lines of comfortably lightweight OMatter and a lens shape inspired by Oakley’s popular Hijinx sunglass, its durability and performance would make a sport frame jealous. Turbine is available with Polarized and Iridium lens options, Prizm lenses, and Oakley Authentic Prescription Lenses.

Gear Diary's 2022 Father's Day Gift Guide

You can even customize Turbines to get a completely personalized pair like the ones pictured above. If dad has a favorite cause, sports team, or phrase, you can incorporate them into a customized pair. These might just turn out to be his favorite pair of sunglasses ever!

The $197 Leffingwell features a full rim, square lens shape, and is infused with design inspiration taken from the craftsmanship and finishes of surfboards and the lifestyle around surfing.Gear Diary's 2022 Father's Day Gift Guide

The Joggle Factory

Dan went to school in North Carolina and was a member of a southern fraternity. Even so, he had never heard of Joggle Boards until a few weeks ago. Joggle Boards are basically a bench made of a long, semi-flexible board supported on both ends by wooden stands that rock. Because the board is springy, it’s easy to bounce up and down, providing gentle exercise while also simulating the motion of a carriage ride.

Gear Diary's 2022 Father's Day Gift Guide

The Joggle Factory offers a number of these unusual benches, including a 6′ Joggling Board for $675. Dad will love sitting on one and slowly rocking while enjoying his morning coffee on lovely days.

But, if dad is handy, you might want to get him the DIY Joggling Board, which starts at $450. The kit comes with everything he’ll need to build his own joggling board except the 2″ x 12′ long top board.

Dad can occupy some of his free weekend summertime putting the pieces together, painting or staining them in the color he prefers (traditionally, joggling boards are painted in green), and then purchase and finish the top board.

It looks like a fun project that won’t be too terribly challenging to build, and when he’s done, dad will have a great place to sit that both of you can enjoy for years to come!

Lenovo Smart Clock Essential with Alexa Built-in

Combining a smart clock with a smart speaker, the $49.99 Lenovo Smart Clock Essential with Alexa Built-in will allow dad to set timers, alarms, and reminders verbally with Alexa. The Smart Clock Essential works perfectly as a standalone bedroom smart clock, or it can be integrated with a larger smart home ecosystem.

Gear Diary's 2022 Father's Day Gift Guide

Having Alexa built-in gives dad immediate access to his Alexa-connected accounts. The Smart Clock Essential promises privacy when he wants it; there is no camera, and there is a physical mute switch.

The soft-touch fabric-wrapped clock has an LED display that shows the time, temperature, weather, and more at a glance. The Smart Clock Essential also has 3W front-firing speakers so dad can enjoy listening to his streaming music, audiobooks, and podcasts.

TheraICE RX Headache Relief Cap

Gear Diary's 2022 Father's Day Gift Guide

If dad suffers from migraines, he is going to love the $39.99 TheralCE RX Headache Relief Cap; it’s a game-changer! The pillowy, cloud-like fabric gently cushions pressure points with no messy ice packs, uncomfortable hard inserts, scratchy velcro, or awkward straps.

The one size fits all Relief Cap works on all types of headaches (common tension, sinus, cluster, and migraine), and it can be used for cold and hot therapies. Dad can wear it over his eyes to block out 100% of light, or he can wear it above the eyes to ease his pain while working, doing chores, or watching TV.

DripDrop ORS

If you want to help dad stay hydrated this summer without the extra calories (and expense) of sports drinks, you ought to get him some DripDrop ORS.

DropDrop ORS individual powder packets have three times the electrolytes as sports drinks but half the sugars. The patented, doctor-developed formula is described as a “fast-acting, delicious-tasting dehydration remedy trusted by doctors, firefighters, elite athletes, and the US Military.”

Gear Diary's 2022 Father's Day Gift Guide

To rehydrate, dad just needs to mix a DripDrop ORS packet with 8 ounces of water in his favorite reusable water bottle. Each packet costs about a dollar, making it significantly less expensive than most sports drinks and much better for the environment, too, since there is no plastic bottle involved.

Dan’s been drinking DripDrop instead of Gatorade; he says that the flavors taste great, and the mix is simple to prepare; you just add a packet to a glass of water and stir. More electrolytes, fewer calories, and good taste have made him a fan!

Phylian Water Flosser

You can help dad stay on top of his oral care routine by giving him the $63.99 Phylian Water Flosser; it can help him prevent tooth decay, dental plaque, dental calculus, bleeding gums, and tooth hypersensitivity. The water flosser has Normal, Soft, and Pulse Modes to choose from, and each mode has five different levels.

Gear Diary's 2022 Father's Day Gift Guide

Small, lightweight, and perfect for travel, the Phylian Water Flosser’s rechargeable battery lasts for up to three weeks. Its water tank holds about one cup of water, so dad will get plenty of flossing action without refills. If dad wants to floss in the shower, he can, as it’s rated IPX7 for water resistance.

Cobra RX680 Walkie Talkies

Summertime is the perfect time for dad to enjoy the great outdoors again. Whether he’s hiking, taking the dog for a long walk in the back-country, or just trying to slip away briefly to get some screen-free peace and quiet, the Cobra RX680 is a fantastic way for him to keep in touch — even in areas without cellular coverage.

Gear Diary's 2022 Father's Day Gift Guide

For $99.95, you can get dad a set of two RX680 Walkie Talkies that are rugged, waterproof with an IP54 rating, deliver NOAA Water Alerts, and have a built-in LED flashlight. Best of all, dad will get up to a 38-mile range when he’s out in the wilderness; if he’s hiking in the wilds of Manhattan, he can still expect up to a 3.8-mile range.

Swagtron EB11 Electric Cruiser Bicycle

If dad is looking to get back in shape this summer, you might suggest he take up bike riding. And if he’s going to take up bike riding, you might consider getting him the Swagtron EB11 Electric Cruiser Bicycle.

Gear Diary's 2022 Father's Day Gift Guide

The cruiser has a Shimano 7-Speed shifter, direct-pull breaks, a removable battery, and a cargo rack. Weighing in at just over 50 pounds, the bike takes minutes to assemble and offers a comfortable ride.

Dad can expect to get speeds of over 15 miles per hour on flat terrain with a range of over 25 miles per charge. Of course, the range dad will get depends on how much he relies on the motor and which of the three available modes he selects; Mode 1 is the slowest but will deliver the most extended range, while Mode 3 will have dad moving faster but, of course, will consume more battery power.

We love the fact that the bike offers pedal assist and has a throttle, so dad can cruise along without needing to pedal when he wants to keep moving but needs a break. We also love that the bike, which usually sells for $1511, is currently on sale for just $799.99.

Wild Willies’ Arsenal Mens Grooming Kit

Gear Diary's 2022 Father's Day Gift Guide

Help dad keep his grooming game strong with the $13.99 Wild Willies’ Arsenal Mens Grooming Kit, which includes everything dad needs to clip, file, tweeze, or snip!

The kit’s contents include straight edge nail clippers, multi-purpose scissors, slanted edge clippers, tweezers, a nail file, a scraping tool, a cuticle stick, a V-shaped push stick, a needle and loop blackhead remover, and an ear pick!

The Arsenal Mens Grooming Kit’s sleek design will fit perfectly in any sized toiletry bag, which makes it the perfect gift for dad to use at home and while traveling!

Elevated Wellness

If dad’s been dealing with the aches and pains that come from getting older, you can help him feel better and relax with Elevated Wellness full-spectrum CBD products. Here are some of our favorites.

Gear Diary's 2022 Father's Day Gift Guide

The $79.99 Good Vibes Tincture is a 1500mg, 1:1 CBDA to CBD full-spectrumterpeneinfused formulation that can help calm dad’s mind and body from most stress-related issues.

CBDA is known to help increase natural serotonin and dopamine production and relieve inflammation and pain issues. A low percentage of Delta-8 THC has been added to the tincture to help potentiate the formula’s stress-relieving properties and increase its pain-relieving efficacy. Each bottle has 30 servings.

If dad needs something even more potent, the Good Vibes Tincture is also available in a 3000mg formula for $125.

If dad needs something more localized, he’ll find that the 1500mg Full Spectrum CBD cream for Pain is formulated to support calming effects in his muscles and joints quickly after application. Dad will get the whole plant entourage effect for increased relief as a full spectrum formulation.

Another product to consider is Elevated Wellness Delta 8 Gummies. Made from organic and vegan ingredients, full panel tested, and fully homogenized for safe and even dosing, each gummy has 20mg of Delta 8 for easy and accurate dosing. If dad requires a higher dose than 20mg, these are about as healthy as a gummy can get, so feel free to eat a few if needed.

Elevated products are made by pharmacists, tested by doctors, and are one of the leading brands medical professionals recommend. All Elevated products are manufactured locally in Austin, TX, within their state of the art, USDA-approved, sterile labs.

All Elevated Wellness products are lab tested, and their certificates of authenticity may be accessed by scanning the QR code on the packaging or their website.

KnowRoaming eSIM

International travel is opening up again. If dad is itching to add another passport stamp to his collection, you can help him keep in touch with those back home for less by getting him a Knowroaming eSIM to use while overseas.

The KnowRoaming eSIM is supported in all unlocked eSIM compatible devices. If you aren’t sure if dad’s phone is eSIM compatible, you can check this list.

The benefits of dad using a KnowRoaming eSIM for data include having 4G/LTE and 3G coverage in over 200 countries and territories.

Dad can easily switch between his home carrier for voice calls and the KnowRoaming eSIM for data. Depending upon the eSIM plan selected, dad can get 500MB of data over one day for $4, 1.5GB of data over three days for $10, 1 GB of data over 15 days for $12, or 5 GB of data over 30 days for $50.

If dad knows to take advantage of the hotel’s WiFi when he’s doing more intensive downloading, uploading, or streaming, these KnowRoaming eSIM data packages should be more than sufficient for keeping in touch and on top of what’s going on at home without paying a carriers’ daily international fees or international roaming charges.

Gear Diary readers can also save on their eSIM orders; until June 30, the following discount codes will apply:

GEARDIARY10 – 10% OFF website wide (exclusion applies for the USA 1 GB 7Day plan)
GEARDIARY15 – 15% OFF when they order over $50  (exclusion applies for the USA 1 GB 7Day plan)

Amor Perfecto Coffee

Millions of dads start their day with a cup of coffee, but getting a good cup of coffee shouldn’t have to mean making a daily trip to a nearby coffee shop. This Father’s Day, you can ensure that your father gets the freshest and best-tasting coffee right from his own kitchen.

Amor Perfecto is the only coffee in the world that is harvested, roasted, and then shipped straight from Colombia to dad’s doorstep within 6-8 weeks of harvest. If you were wondering, the industry standard is 24 to 144 weeks!

Gear Diary's 2022 Father's Day Gift Guide

If you’ve never heard of Amor Perfecto, that’s okay. But if dad is particular about his coffee, it’s a brand you’ll want to get to know. Here’s why:

Founded by Luis Fernando Velez, Amor Perfecto began in a flower shop that served as a bootleg coffee roasting operation in 1997 in Bogota, Colombia. At that time, green coffee beans were considered too valuable of a commodity to be roasted and served in Columbia. It was actually against the law for Columbians to enjoy coffee made from beans grown in their homeland; instead, they had to drink lower-quality imported coffee.

Luis Fernando Velez lobbied to change this law, and in 2003 he saw success! Velez then established Amor Perfecto, and his company has become the pioneer of fresher, better-tasting coffee that is roasted at origin — reducing the carbon footprint of the coffee by nearly 80%!

Amor Perfecto offers its flagship coffee bean, Nariño, as a pound-size bag for $19. If dad is a “multiple cups of coffee per day” guy, you can get four one-pound bags for $69 or throw down and get a five-pound bag for $95. Happy Father’s Day, indeed!

ZEVO Flying Insect Trap

Why use messy, smelly, and potentially dangerous chemical insecticides inside the house when dad can control house flies, fruit flies, and gnats without them? That’s what the $19.99 ZEVO Flying Insect Trap will help him accomplish.

Gear Diary's 2022 Father's Day Gift Guide

If there seems to be a place that every fly who enters the house likes to gather, or if dad is being driven crazy by gnats swarming his indoor houseplants, there is a solution. All he has to do is place a ZEVO device in a nearby outlet, leave it plugged in continuously, and enjoy his new bug-free zone.

The ZEVO plug-in base uses a blue LED and UV light mixture to attract flying insects which are then caught on a refillable and disposable adhesive trap that can be replaced when it’s full of insects — which they recommend you check for every 15 days or so. The blue LED also makes ZEVO a handy night light when it’s placed in the kitchen, bathroom, laundry room, or garage.

The $19.99 ZEVO Flying Insect Starter Kit comes with one plug-in base and one trap cartridge; trap cartridge refills sell in packs of two for $6.99.

DRILLS Boxing Gloves

Boxing can be a fantastic workout. It combines cardio with a bodyweight workout, plus you get experience in balance and awareness of your body and surroundings. It doesn’t matter if your opponent is another person or a heavy punching bag, you need a solid pair of boxing gloves to maximize the workout.

Whether you’re buying for a father who already loves to box or helping to outfit him for the first time, the $39.99 DRILLS boxing gloves are the way to go.

Gear Diary's 2022 Father's Day Gift Guide

DRILLS come in black or blue and in your choice of 12-ounce and 16-ounce sizes; we can attest that the 16-ounce size is perfect for adult hands. These boxing gloves are solid enough to protect dad’s fingers and knuckles while punching but comfortable enough that he can wear them through the workout without suffering.

DRILLS can be wiped clean with a wet towel, and dad will be able to easily put them on without requiring someone else to help, making them the perfect low maintenance but high reward fitness accessory. Zek put them through several days of drills on a heavy bag, and they still look and feel pristine, so it’s safe to say these are a solid pair of gloves!

DRILLS are named after boxing legend Phil “The Drill” Williams, a former professional cruiserweight boxer credited with the fastest, officially recorded knockout in boxing history. All proceeds from the gloves sale funds programs at Northside Boxing Club in North Minneapolis, a non-profit boxing gym that provides free boxing classes, on-site tutoring, and a nutritious meal every weekday evening for at-risk youth in Minneapolis, where Williams is now a coach.

You can feel good about giving dad a set of DRILLS because each purchase is also a gift to the kids in Minneapolis who benefit from the structure, community, and fitness that the Northside Boxing Club in Minneapolis provides!

Kokoon Nightbuds

Gear Diary's 2022 Father's Day Gift Guide

If dad has trouble sleeping, the $249.99 Kokoon Nightbuds might be just the thing. The Nightbuds offer a snug comfortable fit so they won’t disrupt dad’s sleep. While they don’t offer the active noise cancellation of the company’s over-the-ear headphones, they offer intelligent noise-masking that in conjunction with the tight fit of the earbuds themselves, does an excellent job eliminating ambient sound.

The Kokoon companion app offers a variety of different sounds, from gentle nature sounds to guided mediation. Dad can also listen to his own music through the Nighbuds.

In addition, the Nightbuds are able to sense when dad falls asleep and fade out so as not to disturb him. When they do fade out, dad has the choice of enjoying silence or having quiet, ambient sounds throughout the night. Finally, the Nightbuds are able to monitor dad’s sleep and help him better understand his sleep patterns.


Happy Father’s Day!

  1. I’d love to win the Swagtron EB11 Electric Cruiser Bicycle.! I’d love to give that to my Dad. It looks like so much fun, I’d have to borrow it! Thanks for offering this.

  2. The coffee would make a great gift

  3. I like the Amazon Fire TV Omni Series the best, because you can control them with Alexa if you can’t find the remote control. I’d probably have to go with the smaller sizes due to lack of space.

  4. That eBike would be the best gift of all. I rode one once and it was a lot of fun.

  5. Mikhail Rapoport | May 30, 2022 at 1:22 am |

    I really like the 4K Amazon Fire TV Omni Series Smart TV as a gift. It is perfect for viewing animated films and fantasy movies.
