If your dad is talking nonstop about how he misses his favorite restaurant ― from their freshly grated parmesan on pasta to those little packets of sugar on the tables ―you might be looking for a Father’s Day gift that will help his restaurant FOMO (even if he doesn’t know what that stands for).

So far, the HuffPost Finds team has recommended all kinds of Father’s Day gifts, including last-minute presents on Amazon, personalized gifts that’ll feel special, gifts for the dad who’s a sports fanatic, and presents for the self-proclaimed grill master.

Father’s Day is just a few days away — June 21, to be exact. And while it might be a while until your dad can go into a restaurant IRL safely, you can celebrate the day by bringing the restaurant to him — including contactless takeout, restaurant cookbooks, and, of course, Father’s Day gifts that’ll help him around the kitchen.

From a mortar and pestle set that’ll give him guac on the side at no extra cost to a mandoline that’ll give him restaurant-worthy thinly-sliced carrots, these Father’s Day gifts are perfect for the dad who misses going out to eat.
