Dads are notoriously hard to shop for—especially for important holidays like Father’s Day—but if you’ve got a foodie for a dad, it makes the dilemma a whole lot easier to deal with.

That’s because there are some seriously great food-based gifts out there, and who doesn’t love being celebrated with a great meal? Keep scrolling for the best foodie gifts for cooks and food-lovers, from the best meaty treats around to accessories for grilling and sauces to really heat things up.

MeatCrafters Father’s Day Box: $53.99

In our experience, dads love meat, and if yours loves everything from thick-cut bacon to bratwursts and cured sausages, he’ll love everything in MeatCrafters’ Father’s Day Box. Including black pepper bacon, raging brats, half-smoke recipe sausages, chicken basil sausages, chorizo de Pamplona and rosemary lamb salami, it’s got perfectly seasoned offerings for frying and grilling, as well as for enjoying with cheese and crackers when dad doesn’t feel like cooking.

Nutcase Chorizo ($5.99), Hot Italian Sausage ($5.99) and Nutty Burger ($5.99)

Whether your dad practices a plant-based diet or is just trying to cut out some of his meat intakes, he’s going to love the amazing flavors offered by Nutcase Vegan Meats, which are all vegan and nut-based, without sacrificing flavor. With their unique, nutty texture, Nutcase products are an awesome substitute for the real deal, with their chorizo, hot Italian sausage and nutty burgers being fast favorites with dads everywhere.

Holy Grail Steak Co. Tajima American Wagyu Burgers ($18) and Wagyu Brisket, Short-Rib Burgers ($18)

If your dad loves grilling up burgers worth bragging about, you have to help him get his hands on Holy Grail Steak Co.’s patties. While they’re available in a number of styles, we have to recommend the patties including marbleized Wagyu beef. These whopping, half-pound burger patties are so rich and juicy thanks to their high-fat content, and come from American-raised, grass-fed cattle, with a buttery, melt-in-your-mouth texture like you’ve never had before.

For the fisherman dad who prefers fresh flavors from the sea, there’s SeaBear.

Big Shake’s Nashville Hot Chicken Dinner: $99.99

Making fresh fried chicken is a huge hassle, and if that’s not something your family ever does, we don’t blame them—but that doesn’t mean that you all can’t enjoy an awesome, award-winning fried chicken meal in the comfort of your own home. Big Shake’s are the masters of frozen fried chicken, and all it takes is some time in the oven to get chicken that tastes better than any fast food joint can hope to offer. This dinner comes with eight quarters of mixed white and dark fried chicken, two pounds of mac ‘n cheese and two pounds of white beans, serving up to eight people. Even more, it comes in three different heat levels. You can also use the code DadRocks22 to save 25% off everything in their online store.

Fuego Box All-Star Crate Hot Sauce Gift Set: $49.95

For the dad who loves to turn up the heat in their cooking, we highly recommend Fuego Box’s hot sauces—especially their All-Star Hot Sauce Gift Set. While the Secret Aardvark Habanero Hot Sauce is tomatoey and perfect for Mexican food dishes, the Riza Ghost Pepper Verde Hot Sauce adds vinegary punch to anything, and the Fat Cat and the Jersey Barnfire India Summer sauce is like hot honey mustard with spicy sweetness. Our favorites are the Hoff Sauce Southern Stinger Hot Sauce, a hot sauce with a citrusy twist, and the Friendly Fire Guava + Habanero Hot Sauce, which isn’t actually that spicy, but packs a ton of vibrant flavor in every drop. Plus, it all comes in an awesome reusable wooden crate!

Umami Cart Father’s Day Grilling Gift Set: $93

For that dad that loves grilling up Asian-inspired meals, we recommend Umami Cart and their Father’s Day Grilling Gift Set. It doesn’t just include the meat in the form of wagyu chuck short rib, but also a medley of delicious organic mushrooms, plus KPOP Honey Glaze Sauce, Samyang Buldak Hot Chicken Flavor Sauce, Momofuku Savory Seasoned Salt and Ebara Yakiniku Mild BBQ Sauce for a variety of delicious flavors he’ll use again and again.
