Whether you’re celebrating your father, brother, husband or any other fatherly figure or dad-to-be, we’ve rounded up a selection of gifts that are sure to put a smile on your favorite guy’s face this Father’s Day.

1. The Tie Bar Brass Tie Bar (Set of 3), $45
If you’ve got a dapper dad who is dressed to impress on a regular basis, then a simple gift like this tie bar set would be perfect for him. We love that this set comes with three different colors, so Dad can switch and swap them out as he pleases.

2. Cathy’s Concepts ‘Dad’ Keg Mug, $34
It may be that all your dad needs this Father’s Day is to kick back with a cocktail served up in a mug that is exclusively his. If your guy is the type that can often be found tending the bar, then we’d recommend pairing this gift with our number six pick below for the cutest gift set.

3. Ray-Ban Metal Bridge Round Sunglasses, $160
You truly can’t go wrong with a classic pair of sunnies, and we love that this pair is stylish enough to keep Dad on-trend while still looking sophisticated. With these tortoise shell frames added to his wardrobe, he’ll be cool as can be and perfectly suited for summer.

4. The Little Market Leather Key Fob in Chocolate, $24
We love a classic leather piece for anyone, but especially for our dads. This one is simple enough to suit any style, and it doesn’t hurt that it supports a good cause, too.

5. Paul Smith Kew Stripe Socks, $30
…because every dad deserves a fun pair of socks, right? A little pop of color peeking out of his shoes will make him smile and remind him of you every time he sees them.

6. The Gentleman’s Guide to Cocktails, $65
Whether your dad is a whiz in the kitchen, at the bar, or both, we love that this little guide to cocktails encourages your dad to get creative with his cocktail creations and try something new.

7. J.Crew Cotton Belt in Stripe, $45
If your dad likes to go the casual route when it comes to his wardrobe, this cotton belt would fit the bill perfectly for his Father’s Day gift. It has just enough personality to avoid being boring, while not being too loud either.

8. The Little Market Ethiopia Medium Roast Coffee, $18
If your childhood was filled with memories of waking up to the aroma of Dad making his morning cup of Joe, then he’ll love this fair-trade variety sold by The Little Market. Your purchase benefits small-scale farmers in developing countries, so you and Dad can feel even better about sipping your morning coffee.

9. The Little Market ‘The Best Dad’ Soy Blend Candle, $26
This soy blend candle not only has a sweet and simple message on the front, but also comes in over 30 different scents—including everything from sandalwood to churro—so you can select one that fits your dad’s taste and personality perfectly.

10. Nixon Time Teller Watch in Rose, $100
A clean cut watch is always a good idea for the guys in your life, and we love that the rose gold hue on this one gives it a modern and unique touch, while still being masculine. For $100 flat, we think this pick looks pretty luxurious without totally breaking the bank.
