This candle from f.s.c. barber smells like wood and is snuggled into a reusable shatterproof camper’s cup — so think more fiery wax, less scented candle. $55, www.freemanssportingclub.com


Modeled after binoculars found in an old French naval shipyard, this tripod pair from Restoration Hardware is the perfect dad mix of spy toy, history and gadget. $2,495, www.restorationhardware.com


He gets the Ninjabread Men cookies. You get the cutters. Everyone gets kicked in the face and jumps over couches for old time’s sake. $12, www.unique-vintage.com


White wine would look silly in these. So would chocolate milk. Designed by architect Jorn Utzon,

We’re not saying he’s old, but there is a retro cool to this  bi-fold wallet from Paul Smith. $195,
www.bloomingdales.com


Thor, the new whiskey inspired by Nordic gods, Vikings and general Scottish badassery: Yes. $199, www.highlandpark.co.uk

The “Gentleman’s Collection” from DavidsTea features three blends and a suave little mustache-bedecked box. $16.50, www.davidstea.com


The Glenlivet 18 Years of Age is the perfect Father’s Day scotch: Nice enough to give as a gift,
but not so nice that he won’t pour you a glass. $74, www.theglenlivet.com


These onesies make diaper duty a little easier. $48 (set of two), www.gilt.com/kids


After all these years, isn’t it about time someone bought him a bike? C. Wonder’s single-speed  boasts a classic  look and comfy seat. $249, www.cwonder.com


Pair this corkscrew with a nice bottle of steak-friendly red that your mom won’t drink. $26,
www.unique-vintage.com

Don’t run this one by mom: La-Z-Boy’s new XZIPIT recliner features a removable panel so he can
match his gigantic chair to the sporting season. $889, www.lazboy.com


Kitsch alert! Because sometimes, you’ve gotta get him a bottle-opening universal remote control. Add a “No. 1 Dad” mug at your own risk. $17, www.brookstone.com
