Grill Master Dad
First up is your traditional everyday dad who loves nothing more than to crack a cold one while smoking up some brisket in the backyard. While he may already have everything he needs for his outdoor grill, one can never underestimate the handiness of an enameled griddle pan to bring the outdoors inside. Handsome and understated, the Crane griddle simplifies side dishes, and transfers straight to the tabletop with minimal cleanup. For everything from hearty vegetables to meat, it's even lightweight and compact enough to take on your next road trip and put over the campfire. That wins bonus points in our book.
Crane Griddle Pan
Similar to Grill Master Dad, the Carnivore Dad is serious about his steak done right. With that said, this dad needs the right tools for the right job done well. The De Buyer steak pan is a dedicated pan that offers unparalleled performance in terms of searing and pan-frying the perfect cut of meat. A combination of low sloped sides that encourage rapid evaporation of moisture, and a heavy gauge carbon steel creates the best maillard reaction resulting in a perfectly seared, juicy piece of steak. Top it off with handcrafted Spanish-made steak knives and you're all set.

The New Dad
Still bleary eyed and sleep deprived, this one goes for coffee all the way. Our top choice? The award winning Espro Press. Keeps coffee warm for hours without over extracting, and never sludgy. A piece of solace in trying times. Still tasty at 5 am. Need we say more? Pssst... Go for the large.
The D.I.Y. Dad
Always tinkering, always testing like a mad scientist. That's what we love about him. The Homemade Gin kit allows dad to tap into his inner craft distilling dreams. Deceptively simple to make, this kit comes with all the tools and herbs required to make a home batch of craft gin. Just add alcohol!

Hippie Granola Dad
For all the veggie lovers and locavores, the handmade fermentation crock combines utility and form all in one. Hand thrown on the wheel by a Sante Fe farmer turned potter, the crock features a water-lock, which prevents oxygen from getting in to contaminate your friendly bacteria, while allowing built-up carbonation to escape. Comes with weights to hold down your veggies below the brine. Smart, right? We thought so. Pair with a hand-carved vegetable tamper to make life beautifully easier.
