Each product we feature has been independently selected and reviewed by our editorial team. If you make a purchase using the links included, we may earn commission.

Your grandfather is a living legend. After all, he taught you all about your family lineage, tells the best stories, showed you how to build and mend everything with heart, and shaped you into the person that you are today. As you think about how you want to spend the day dedicated to Dad and Grandpa, Lisa Cokinos, the founder of and party planner at LC Events in New York City, advises planning a celebration and giving a meaningful gift. Ultimately, choosing a Father's Day gift for the man who has everything may seem like a tall order—but in actuality, he's easy to please: If he's a hobbyist of time-honored traditions, he'll love game boards and model airplanes. A movie night with a reel of family videos, on the other hand, would make for a delightful surprise—especially if he could watch it in the company of his children and grandchildren. If he's a gardener, equip him with a set of solid tools so he can dig in the dirt—or deliver a new potted plant for him to nurture indoors. And if he's an unstoppable explorer, an engraved watch will always remind him when it's time to come home again.

Ahead, shop some of our favorite Father's Day gift ideas for your grandfather—they're guaranteed to put a smile on his face and be used for years to come.
