Father’s Day may not get the same kind of sentimental, show-some-love outpourings of press as Mother’s Day, but if you’ve got a great dad, he definitely deserves a special day of gratitude. Let him know you’re glad he’s your dad, and give him a gift he’ll love. If you need some help on that front, we picked out the perfect Father’s Day gifts for every kind of dad out there.

If you’re on a budget, consider something homemade—a mustache-shaped dessert, maybe, or a grilled paella feast (it’s not too pricey if you stick to chicken and sausage). But if you can swing it, there are lots of options for both virtual and in-person presents below—and we’ll be adding more as we get closer to dad’s big day.
