Below, all our suggestions for home-run dad gifts, including things that may not be dad-specific but would be highly appreciated, from fun ideas to the world’s best knives set. We’ll continue to update this page as we get closer to June 16th.

Dom Pérignon is unveiling a very special vintage, Dom Pérignon P2, also known as “second plenitude” — launching just in time for Father’s Day. This exclusive vintage celebrates the way in which Dom Pérignon vintages evolve — not in a steady, linear way, but rather in through successive windows of expression throughout the maturation of the wine, making it a very fitting gift for father’s this year.

While each initial release of Dom Pérignon celebrates the harmony that the Chef de Caves finds and curates from a vintage, P2 is the wine at the peak of its energy. With outstanding maturity, reminiscent of that seen in 1982 and 1990, the complexity of the vintage is warm with striking flavors of sweet spices, fresh coriander, saffron and crystallized fruits that evolve into a darker, deeper bouquet that is more reserved and serene.

Maybe your dad enjoys a nice whiskey on the rocks (we’re not judging), but allow us to introduce you to Hillrock Solera Aged Bourbon, which is the first American whiskey to be aged in the centuries-old Solera method used traditionally to create exceptional Sherries, Ports, Madeiras, and Cognacs. Recognized internationally, the award winning whiskey is finished in 20 year old Oloroso Sherry casks which give the Bourbon floral notes layered with fig, roasted walnuts, candied fruit and spicy rye.

Solera aging involves a pyramid of barrels where a small portion of whiskey is removed periodically from the lowest tier of barrels and an equal measure of new whiskey is added to the top barrels. No barrel in the Solera is ever emptied, and over time, the older whiskey in the Solera mingles with younger whiskies to create unmatched depth and complexity.

Here’s a red-fruited cabernet that’s juicy and ripe, buoyed by the elegance of benchland tannins. Those tannins feel brisk, with rocky mineral edges and softer hints of leather.
