As the daughter of a bona fide foodie father, I’ve always loved tracking down cool gourmet Father’s Day gift boxes for dads. And there are so many!
I mean, so many gifts, but also so many kinds of dads.
(Shockingly, not every dad likes grilling, golf, hogging the remote control, and not knowing how to do the dishes, as every card store rack would have you believe. Sigh.)
So check out our guide to fabulous gourmet gift boxes and subscriptions for dads, whether he’s got a sweet tooth, a hardcore snack thing, a thing for bourbon, or a thing for tea. Any of these gifts lets you make a big splash, even when the price tag is pretty small.
Here’s to all the awesome dads out there! May they eat well for all their days.

A Gourmet Gift Box for the New Dad
Awww Baby Gift Box from One Hope Wines

A little something for him (wine + caffeine), a little something for the baby (not the wine or caffeine).
A Gourmet Gift Box for the Grilling Dad with Great Taste
Grill Sergeant Artisanal Gift Box
$139, Mouth Foods
Yes it’s a Father’s Day cliché, but what dad could say no? This box is filled with goodies from artisanal makers and smaller purveyors — and even veggie-burger grillers will love it.
A Gourmet Gift Box for the Military Dad Overseas
Sweet & Salty Gourmet Gift Box
$39.99+, Harry & David
Harry & David offers an entire collection of gourmet Father’s Day gifts available to ship to international bases around the world. He’d probably just be happy with the addictive Moose Munch Popcorn, but there’s so much more to devour here, he won’t know where to start.
A Gourmet Gift Box for the Dad Who’s Like, “Get Me Anything As Long as It’s Chocolate”
Vosges Dark Chocolate Truffle Collection
$48, Vosges Haut Chocolate
I have one of these kinds of dads in my life, and for him, I’ve often turned to Vosges. If he’s a real chocolate lover, he’ll appreciate the all-dark assortment here with adventurous flavors made with ingredients like ginger + wasabi, Modena balsamic, Ceylon cinnamon, wild Tuscan fennel pollen, and Café du Monde chicory coffee. Sold!
A Gourmet Gift Box for the Devoted Carnivore Dad

A Gourmet Gift Box for the Dad with a Big Heart
A Cookie of the Month Club That Gives Back
$40/mo and up, Cookies 4 Kids
What better way to celebrate an awesome dad, than a gift that helps other parents and kids? Cookies For Kids Cancer makes the most delicious treats (I’ve had MANY over the years!) and all profits go directly to support pediatric cancer research.
A Gourmet Gift Box for the Bourbon Connoisseur Dad
The Bourbon Planner Gift Box
$191.50, Mouth Foods
Is “bourbon-drinking dad” a Father’s Day gift cliché? Well, yes, and for good reason! If he’s a proud member of this group, check out this gift box filled with everything but the bourbon.
Oh, and if you want to include the bourbon? Hit your local liquor store or visit Drizly to find for EH Taylor Small-Batch Bourbon ($35.99+) from the distillery that makes Pappy Van Winkle. It’s a fabulous bargain that’s just as worth of savoring.
A Gourmet Gift Box for the Tea-Drinking Dad
Tea Master’s Private Reserve Duo Gift Box
$24.95, Vadham Teas
If he’s a teetotaler or just one who appreciates gourmet looseleaf teas, Dad will loooove Vadham’s elegant gift boxes as much as we do. (And hey, they’re one of Oprah’s Favorite Things so can both Cool Mom Eats and Oprah be wrong? No.) They’ve got lots of of gourmet tea gift boxes starting at just $14.99, but I’m eyeing this affordable Private Reserve box featuring looseleaf Himalayan Gold Black Tea, plus an Earl Grey Chai Tea, all beautifully packaged, as you can see.

Combining his love for beef jerky with his devotion to the Windsor Knot, we love this clever jerky sampler packaged in a tie box. Of course it helps if he likes jerky. If not, Man Crates offers plenty of other fun options.
