Instead of buying dad another power tool or a bundle of socks this Father’s Day (unless it’s these socks, of course), you should get him a gift that keeps giving long after June 16 has passed. These five subscription boxes contain tasty treats, ranging from homemade cocktail ingredients to rare Japanese snacks, that Dad can enjoy both now and later. The best part — you decide how many months to gift for each, depending on your budget.
If you’ve ever visited a Japanese convenience store or the candy aisle at an international market, then you know that the best snacks come from Japan. But if you’re unsure how to navigate the foreign packaging, Bokksu is a great introduction to authentic nibbles from the country. Every month, they curate a selection of Japanese snacks from local makers. The boxes are themed — recent and upcoming include Spring Picnic and Citrus Summer, for example. In our most recent box, we got to enjoy things like uni fried rice crackers, honey butter potato sticks, and white chocolate pear butter cookies. Every dad that savors his snack time will love this box.
Grill Masters Club
For the dad who loves to grill, this monthly subscription is sure to step up his time over the coals. Every month, Grill Masters Club sends a box that’s chock-full of sauces, rubs, wood chips, and even a chef’s choice item, which could be anything from a pair of BBQ gloves to a bag of delicious jerky. Each box also comes with product information and custom recipes, so he’ll know exactly how to use his new meat-ready bounty. You can buy dad a one-, three-, six-, or 12-month subscription depending on how much you want to spend.
Shaker & Spoon
If dad loves to play bartender at home but is stuck in a cocktail rut, Shaker & Spoon is the perfect way to expand his spirituous horizons. Every month, a themed Shaker & Spoon box is delivered to his door, filled with all the syrups, bitters, garnishes, mixers, and citrus to make 12 delicious cocktails. Pro bartenders create the recipes, so all he needs to do is follow along, and he’ll be sipping an expertly crafted libation in no time. Dad will love the variety of boxes that range in theme from Negroni variations to cocktails made with Jamaican rum.
If dad is more of a wine drinker, Leon Circle would be the perfect gift. The monthly wine club was started by Chris Leon, who comes from a family of wine lovers, has worked in many a restaurant and winery, and owns his own shop in Brooklyn. Every month, Leon Circle delivers three region-specific wines (recent boxes have covered Chile and Piedmont, Italy) that are inspiring to Chris. Each bottling is guaranteed to be a special, thoughtfully made wine, and the package comes complete with fun, educational tasting notes that anyone can understand.
Murray’s Cheese of the Month
Even if you don’t live close to a gourmet cheese shop like Murray’s, you and dad can still enjoy the finest cheeses in the world. Murray’s Cheese of the Month can be gifted in four, six, or 12-month subscriptions, or it can even be ordered month-to-month if you’re not ready to commit long term. Each shipment includes three cheeses — totaling 1.5 pounds — with detailed descriptions, serving suggestions, and wine pairings to go along with them. From triple creams to aged cheddars, each cheese is chosen at peak ripeness for the utmost satisfaction.
