Mother’s Day has come and gone, which means that Father’s Day (Sunday, Jun. 18) is even closer. You could get one of the standard “Dad gifts” — socks, ties, maybe a golf club cover, if that’s his thing — or you could make the day more memorable by getting something a little more personal. The fathers in your life can tell when their Father’s Day gift has a little more thought behind it, and one of our favorite places to find these kinds of memory-making presents is Etsy.

From beautiful leather accessories to one of the most gorgeous whiskey glasses we’ve ever seen, Etsy has one-of-a-kind gifts that even guys who say they “already have everything” will appreciate. Check out our favorite kitchen finds below to take care of your Father’s Day shopping, and remember to visit Etsy the next time you’re looking for inspiration to upgrade your gift giving.

These artisan chocolate bonbons are delicious and totally eye-catching. The crunchy chocolate shell comes in all kinds of captivating colors and swirling designs, all with delicious concoctions inside. Flavors include burnt passionfruit, salted caramel, Mexican chocolate, dark and stormy (like the cocktail!) and more. Dads with a sweet tooth can enjoy them in private, and dads who just want to eat one or two will have no problem finding people to share them with.

If you want a really nice gift that's still pretty budget-friendly, this dual-sided spice holder made from gorgeous olive wood is an excellent choice. It instantly adds style and charm to any kitchen, and while it's great to use as pinch bowls for salt and pepper, it can hold any ground spices — making it a thoughtful gift for grilling season, too. And if cooking isn't Dad's thing, this is a wonderful catch-all for his nightstand or dresser, where it can hold cufflinks, rings, and any number of small doodads.

This set of 12 flavorful spice mixes is perfect for dads who like to share their presents with others. With flavors such as Memphis BBQ Rub, Tropical Citrus Rub, and African Berbere Rub, Dad will have plenty of spice mixtures to try out on the grill this summer, and if any become his new favorite, you can contact the Etsy seller to ask about buying a refill of that one variety. We also like that the gift includes a detailed description of ingredients for each spice mix and suggestions for which dishes to use them in.

Some dads have a hard time remembering to use coasters, while others are hyper vigilant about EVERYONE in the house using them all the time. This interesting whiskey glass set works for both kinds of coaster users because it practically demands to be used with its wooden drink rest, which is beautifully shaped to match the mountainous contour of the bottom of the glass. You also don't have to be a whiskey drinker to appreciate this supremely cool piece of glassware — it's just as nice for sipping water, mocktails, and iced tea or soda.

It's time to upgrade Dad's coffee ritual with this glass and wood pour over coffee set. Everything is handmade, and the glass carafe has an interesting diamond shape that sets it apart from your typical other coffee accessories. The divider that goes between the carafe and glass filter holder is made of walnut wood, which has a beautifully rich color. It's also 10 percent off right now, so grab it while you still can!

Bring the bar to Dad with this DIY gin making kit that makes gin in just three days. He can experiment with ten different botanicals, including juniper berries, green cardamom, hibiscus flowers, and licorice root, which come in clear glass vials that he can proudly display on his bar cart. You simply have to buy the alcohol and this kit will supply the rest.

Personalize Dad's kitchen with these customizable leather pot handles that are designed to best fit handles with up to 1 3/8-inch width (such as the ones on his 12-inch cast iron skillet). Once he slips it on, the leather handle will mold to the skillet handle for an ideal grip. Choose between eight colors — including classic hues like red maple, slate, and chestnut — and gold or silver foil for the lettering.

Dads who love cooking will enjoy having a handsome case for their favorite knives and kitchen tools. This suede knife roll has pockets to hold knives, sharpeners, graters, shears, and any number of grilling or cooking essentials. It keeps everything safe, which is great for high-end knives you really want to protect, and you can add a customized leather stamped name tag on the outside to make it an even more personalized gift.

No one ever suspects the customized bobblehead, which is what makes this utterly unique gift so delightful. Here's how it works: Send a high-resolution photo of Dad's face to the Etsy seller and choose from a selection of hair colors and skin tones. Then, you'll get a nearly picture-perfect replica with an outfit to match the one in the photo — and, of course, a bobbling head! Since this gift takes a few weeks to make and ship, you might want to get it now so you have it in time for Father's Day.

Handcrafted in Holland from full-grain buffalo leather and tanned in Italy, these luxury oven mitts will be a Father's Day hit. Not only are they hard to burn, but they're extra long to provide additional protection. You can choose from classic colors like gray or beige, but if you ask us, we're partial toward that gorgeous brown.
