Father’s Day is coming up, but finding the right gift for dear old Dad can be tough. Sure, you want to choose something thoughtful, but you’ve probably already given him many of those more sentimental gifts over the years. If that’s where you find yourself this year, an edible (or drinkable) gift might be perfect!

Consumables are personal when you gift them, but once your pops eats or drinks them all up, he’ll be asking for more next year. From beer subscriptions to fancy imported cheeses, there’s a gift idea in here for every papa.
