For the Dad who loves the kitchen

This awesome knife rack from Design*Sponge will help him keep his cooking tools close at hand and stylishly displayed.


For the Dad who loves his tech

For the Dad who loves to be outdoors

Whether he’s waiting for the steaks to finish or sipping a beer, these DIY Adirondack chairs from Lowe’s will be a hit! Note: this one may require some sweat and lumber.


Happy Father’s Day to all the great dads out there!
