The Techie Dad: Oculus Meta Quest 2 ($299)
Dad’s constantly raving about digital advancement and the future of technology, so it’s a no-brainer to gift him a VR headset. With 1832 x 1920 pixels per eye, he can fully absorb himself in realistic 3D worlds through gaming or attending a live event from home. He can even use his new toy to do things like learn a new language or teleport almost anywhere in the world.

The Grill Master Dad: Rodney Scott's World of BBQ: Every Day Is a Good Day: A Cookbook ($17.77)
Sure, your mean, lean grilling machine dad might have all the tools to fire things up but does he have the recipes from an award-winning chef. In the first cookbook by Black pitmaster chef Rodney Scott spills what makes his pit-smoked turkey, barbecued spare ribs, smoked chicken wings, hush puppies, Ella's Banana Puddin', and award-winning whole hog so darn good. The photos alone will make you drool!
The ‘King of the Throne’ Dad: TUSHY Ace Electric Bidet Seat ($499)
If dad’s favorite seat in the house is his porcelain throne then why not upgrade it? Tushy, the makers of the attachable bidet, created an electric bidet seat that will turn any toilet into a spa-quality experience. Use the designer remote control to adjust the water temperature and pressure (or double-tap for the signature oscillating massage spray). Plus, the heated seat and air dryer can both be customized with five settings for customizable comfort.

The WFH Dad: SlantedDesigns Blade Headphone Stand ($59)
With the anticipation of Marvel’s Blade movie building, there’s no better time than to appeal to your dad’s slightly nerdy comic obsession that may or may not have taken over his work-from-home office. While MCU is at the top of its game right now, he’ll surely appreciate this ode to the original Blade (hello, Wesley Snipes) that’s completely functional as a place to rest his headphones.

The Hip Hop Head Dad: Bright Black Hip Hop Candle ($30)
If dad has “Rapper’s Delight” on repeat in the car and has a closet full of Coogi sweaters, why not extend his love of hip hop culture to cover all the senses—including smell. Bright Black is a Black-owned business that uses scent as a medium and candles as a platform for sharing positive narratives about Blackness. Its Hip Hop candle blends shea butter, evergreen, and oud scents into a matte black vessel that as a whole captures the spirit of the genre.

The collection was intentionally designed to enhance the shave experience for Black and Brown men, helping to alleviate razor bumps while providing superior moisturization.
