Our Kodiak Cakes Father’s Day Gift Guide is sure to help you find a great gift your dad will love!

Father's Day

What dads want for Father’s Day isn’t always obvious, unlike a good dad joke. But before you throw in the towel, or tie, we’ve come up with five unique Father’s Day gift ideas to help you pick the absolute best Father’s Day gift this year. As much as we hate to be the bearer of bad news, we’re sorry to say that “#1 Dad” coffee mugs didn’t make the cut.

Electric Griddle + Whole Wheat, Oat & Honey Frontier Cakes

Dads need their breakfast as much as bears need their honey, so it only makes sense to buy an electric griddle dedicated to the best and most important meal of the day for your dad this Father’s Day. We may be partial, but we think the best use for any electric griddle is cooking up a fluffy stack of Kodiak Cakes Whole Wheat, Oat & Honey Frontier Cakes. This frontier-inspired pancake and waffle mix is made with 100% whole grain wheat and oat flours and is naturally sweetened with honey to help satisfy the sweet tooth of the most immediate forebear in your life. You may even be tempted to put his new gift to good use by whipping up a surprise Father’s Day breakfast for your Pops!

Adjustable Weight Set + Power Cakes Flapjack & Waffle Mix

If your dad likes to work out, but isn’t necessarily a big “gym guy”, you can’t go wrong with a set of adjustable dumbbells. A compact and adjustable set of dumbbells is a great way to get a workout in from home. And because they are adjustable, they can help your dad dial in the right amount of weight to reach an appropriate level of muscle fatigue during his workout.

We recommend pairing this gift with a box of our protein-packed Power Cakes to help dad fuel his gains. Protein is proven to help repair muscle tissueafter an intense workout, and these pancakes are crafted with 14 grams of protein per serving. We even make them in six great-tasting flavors—ButtermilkCinnamon OatDark ChocolatePeanut ButterAlmond Poppy Seed, and Chocolate Chip—giving Dad something tasty to look forward to after an early morning workout. In fact, did you know studies suggest that a high-protein breakfast is a great way to reduce cravings and hunger throughout the day?

Dutch Oven + Buttermilk Power Cakes

Dad’s arsenal of camping cookware is not complete without a cast-iron Dutch oven. We recommend one with a minimum diameter of 12 inches so there’s plenty of space to cook dinner—or dessert—for the whole gang. A Dutch oven is a great receptacle for Kodiak Cakes peach cobbler. Made with our Buttermilk Power Cakes Flapjack and Waffle Mix, this recipe is the perfect dessert for summer camping trips. Not to mention, a 12-inch Dutch oven makes plenty of cobbler for the whole family to enjoy. Basically, it’s one of the best Father’s Day gift ideas out there!

Camp Stove + Oatmeal Unleashed

If dad is more interested in blazing his own trail than following paved paths to developed campsites, then you’ll want to get him something a little lighter than the ol’ Dutch oven—we know, your dad is probably pretty tough, but still. There are plenty of reliable backpacking stoves on the market to choose from, but we recommend a canister stove with a sturdy base, piezo (self-igniting) ignition, and a simmer function if you think he’ll use it to cook foods that require more than just boiling water.

A solid backpacking stove is more than just a unique Father’s Day gift idea; it’s also a great way to boil water for freeze-dried meals or coffee, as well as preparing water for Kodiak Cakes Oatmeal Unleashed Cups. Our oatmeal cups come in six different flavors—CaramelChocolate ChipPeanut Butter Chocolate ChipMaple and Brown SugarCinnamon, and Strawberry Dark Chocolate—and each one is packed with 14 grams of protein, making them the perfect way to start a big day spent exploring mountain trails with friends and family.

Wood Pellet Grill + All-Purpose Baking Mix

If your pops is a barbecue aficionado then it’s time he turned up the heat, or lowered it, with a wood pellet grill. What is a wood pellet grill, you ask? Well, as you might’ve guessed from the name, it’s a grill heated with wood instead of propane or charcoal. A wood pellet grill has a hopper on the side to hold a few pounds of food-grade wood pellets that will imbue whatever your dad is grilling or smoking with a natural, wood-smoked flavor.

Part of what makes a wood pellet grill such a great Father’s Day gift idea is its sheer versatility. From steaks to brisket to pulled pork or pizzas, wood pellet grills pretty much cook it all. In fact, Kodiak Cakes homemade pizza is a great way for Dad to switch up his grilling routine. Made with our All-Purpose Baking Mix, this recipe only takes about seven minutes to cook on a wood pellet grill, so he (or you) can keep churning out pizzas for the whole family this Father’s Day.
