Shopping for the father figure in your life can be a struggle. In fact, men in general can be tricky to shop for. Their hobbies can be expensive—Golf! Tennis!—and menswear and accessories come with their own particular size charts, so unless you’re literally snooping through your dad’s clothing collection to find his particular jacket, pants, or shirt sizes, you’re out of luck. Unless you’re shopping from this dad-approved list, that is.

This list has everything you need to impress your dad this Father’s Day. It has luxury candles! A few dad sandals that are actually cool! Cashmere sweaters on here that he would never ever buy for himself! I even found a travel gift card so that he can stay in a nicer place while on his next work trip! I really did try to think of everything.

The items on this list are all things I’ve bought for my father in the past or pieces he’s specifically told me he wants this year, so consider all of these gifts to be officially father-approved in one way or another. They work as summer birthday gifts, too, if the father figure in your life happens to have been born between the months of May and August.
