And regardless of whichever blend you end up choosing, Dad is guaranteed a strong cup of delicious coffee. With Amazon Prime membership, your gift will arrive at his doorstep in two days or less — plus, BLK & Bold donates a portion of all profits to support at-risk youth both locally and nationally, so there’s also the satisfaction of contributing to a good cause.

If Dad has been drinking the same brand of bourbon for decades, help him shake things up a bit with a subscription to Flaviar. He’ll get to sample a range of different brands and styles — without having to commit to buying an entire bottle. That is, until he finds a new one that he loves! Membership includes free shipping of specially-curated spirits that come in individual vials, as well as virtual tastings, and a complimentary bottle of his choosing each quarter.

Is he a total sports fanatic? Hook him up with a subscription to ESPN+ so he can stream all his favorite teams. He’ll get access to thousands of events from MLB, NHL, MLS, Series A, FA Cup, Top Rank Boxing, and more. Or, you can get a bundle deal with ESPN+, Hulu, and Disney+ for $12.99/month for the ultimate entertainment setup.

Wild Alaskan Company

Wild, sustainably caught seafood is only a few clicks away with Wild Alaskan Company’s seafood membership. With his membership, Dad will be able to select the delivery frequency and type of combo box he wants, with choices between salmon varieties including coho and sockeye, as well as white fish such as halibut and cod. Plus, the seafood comes in an eco-friendly, insulated cooler, and is individually portioned for easy defrosting.

Does Dad dream of smoking the perfect brisket or pork butt? He’ll get a crash course on everything he needs to know from BBQ pro Aaron Franklin in his Texas Style BBQ MasterClass course. Broken into easy-to-follow, beautifully produced segments, he’ll learn how to control his smoker’s fire, and learn to master classic recipes such as ribs and BBQ sauce. For just $15 per month, you can get Dad an annual MasterClass membership (a good option if you’re joining forces with a sibling) so he’ll be able to take this and over 80 courses taught by prolific authors, business leaders, artists, chefs, and much more. Each class has a downloadable coursebook, which means he’ll have access to knowledge long after his subscription ends.

When in doubt, get Dad a nice bottle of the brown stuff. Not sure which bottle is his go-to? No worries: This The Glenlivet 12 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky casts a pretty wide net in terms of palate-pleasing, and even if Dad is more of a bourbon or rye guy, he'll love the approachable, fruit-forward notes of this balanced expression.

Driftaway Coffee

If Dad is a coffee lover, there’s no better gift than a subscription to Driftaway Coffee. He gets to pick the grind size, brewing method, frequency, and volume that he wants, so he always has fresh coffee on hand — no matter if he uses a French press or drip coffee maker! The first delivery of the subscription includes four different varieties of coffee to taste and rate so Driftaway can learn his preferences for future deliveries. You also have the option to get him a gift card so he can pick out exactly what he wants!

Bring a little life into Dad’s living room or office with a gift card to Bloomscape!
