He's the guy who was there when you were ready to ride a bike without training wheels, who taught you how to symmetrically mow a lawn, who used duct tape to fix any and every household problem, and who introduced you to some of our all-time favorite family meals. Whether your dad cherishes a juicy steak, is a whiz at making cocktails, or prefers salads packed with healthy proteins, he is probably at the center of your most cherished food memories. To celebrate Dad and his big-time appetite, we've rounded up 16 fabulous Father's Day gifts.

If your dad is always checking his watch to see if it's five o'clock, then he'll love the smooth yet spicy Scottish single malt from Arran Distillery. If he's more of a morning guy, send him a coffee subscription so he can enjoy fresh-roasted premium coffee delivered right to his door. If he loves having fresh ingredients for his cooking and tends to like things spicy, gift him a grow kit for chiles. You can pair it with a molcajete for homemade guacamole, too, then make the gift even better by including some ripe avocados! A dad who wants to be healthy would embrace a top-notch juicer that helps him (and the rest of the family) up their fruit and vegetable intake.

And if he's the type of father who is always whipping up a feast for everyone in the house, you can't beat a new piece of cookware. Whether he's grilling, baking cornbread, or cooking on the stovetop, Dad will love the handmade Smithey Ironware Co. "No. 10" Cast-Iron Skillet ($160, food52.com) you see right here. With a satin smooth surface, pour spouts, and a helper handle, it's a hardworking kitchen essential he'll reach for constantly.

Any foodie father will love these gifts that make cooking, eating, and drinking at home a little more stylish and a lot more delicious. Happy shopping!
