What do you get for the man with super-discerning taste? If you have the type of dad who won’t be satisfied with a “World’s Best Dad” mug or yet another silly tie, it can be tough to come up with a gift he’ll actually like this Father’s Day.

If you’re struggling with gift ideas for a picky dad in your life, check out these four awesome presents that even the most particular of dads will love.

1. Stroller

For a new dad, a stroller is the perfect summer companion. Whether he likes to multitask and get a workout in with a jogging stroller, or just wants to go for a leisurely walk in the park with a lightweight model with plenty of storage room for snacks, a dad with a baby or toddler will get great use out of this thoughtful and practical gift.

2. Karaoke Machine

Watch a secret shower singer’s face light up when you gift him a karaoke machine. It will provide hours of entertainment for any fun-loving dad. If he’s used to feigning excitement when he opens another package of golf balls — or worse yet — more socks and underwear, he’ll be thrilled when he realizes you’ve switched it up in a big way this year.

3. Zero Gravity Chair

Workaholic dads can be tough to please, but he won’t be able to resist snagging some R&R when you give him a super-comfortable zero gravity chair.  Of course, it’s also the perfect gift for the dad who’s tough to shop for precisely because his favorite activity is doing nothing at all. Don’t be surprised if you catch him snoozing away by day’s end.

4. Sous Vide Machine

Sometimes the best gifts are those that you would never think to get for yourself, but once you get one, you can’t imagine life without it. Dads who love to cook (and eat!) will love a sous vide machine, a great gadget that allows you to cook food in temperature-controlled water while it’s in a vacuum-sealed bag.
