Father’s Day gifts can be practical, but still have a wow factor.

Don’t mistake useful for boring. Find a Father’s Day gift you know he’ll use and enjoy for years to come from our recommended list, which includes something for every type of dad: from on-the-go dads to those who love to light up the grill.

Portable car battery jump starter: Make sure Dad never gets stuck by a dead car battery again by giving him a portable starter. These lightweight miracle workers are easy to use and get drivers back on the road in no time. Many models come with bonus features such as air compressors and USB phone chargers.

A multi-tool: Put a wide world of tools in the palm of Dad’s hand with a popular multi-tool. Think of these gadgets as the next generation of the Swiss Army Knife. A multi-tool holds tools such as knives, scissors, screwdrivers, files, can openers, bottle openers and more. Your dad can be ready for just about anything with this handy gift that doesn’t bust the budget.

Grilling accessories: If your dad loves grilling, then consider picking up some quality tools to help him prepare some amazing meals outside. There is so much more out there for grilling lovers than tongs and spatulas, although those are two essential items in any man’s grilling arsenal. From grilling mats to keep food from sticking and falling between the grates to planks that infuse food with flavor and keep it moist and tender, there is a wide variety of gift ideas to bring out the grill master in any dad.

Wallets: If you’re dad’s wallet looks like it’s been through a war zone or dates back to before you were born, then take the initiative and present him with a new one. Today’s wallets are built to last, make it easier than ever to have a place for everything (cash, credit cards, identification), and yet can still fit comfortably in a front or back pocket. Whether dad is more of a traditionalist who likes leather wallets or more of a modern man who appreciates a magnetic clip, you can find something to fit his style and needs.

Travel tech gifts: If you have a dad who is on the go for work or play, give him a gift that will make his travel easier and even more fun. Today’s tech gadgets offer so many options for a better travel experience, including noise-cancelling headphones, electronic luggage trackers, multipurpose iPhone cases that carry earbuds, cash/credit cards and a mirror, portable electronic chargers and more.
