If the dad in your life saw Jurassic Park when he was younger and still believes dinosaurs will roam once more, you can’t go wrong here.

Prehistoric terrors and buttery popcorn are perfect for family bonding.

3. Plates for Your Planet Lovin’ Papa


Planet Plates, Unemployed Philosophers Guild $38.95

6. For the Father who is Prepared for Real Walkers

Is your dad ready for the zombie apocalypse? Help protect his scalp as he tills the land in his self-sustaining garden with the Dale Bucket Hat. After he shows you his stockpile of canned corn, binge watch The Walking Dead on Netflix with him.

7. Dedicated to the Daredevil Dads


Daredevil Polo, ThinkGeek Exclusive $23.99+

9. For the Sharp-Dressed Hero


DC Comics Silvertone Oval Batman Logo Cufflinks, Bed Bath & Beyond $52.99

10. Marty McFly Daddy-O


Back to the Future Time Machine Mark I Car, Forbidden Planet NYC $53.99+

This 1/18th scale Back to the Future Time Machine Mark I Car replica with fully-detailed moving parts is 14 inches long and infinitely awesome.

11. So Your Father’s a Timelord
