On the list of the most difficult things in the world, buying a good Father's Day gift is right up there with fire-juggling and speed-solving a Rubik's cube. Dads tend to be content with the stuff they've already got unless it breaks, in which case they immediately run out for a replacement. They aren't interested in doing a lot of shopping around, or making little wish lists; when they buy something, it's for practical purposes.

That means there's no way to cheat your way to a thoughtful present when you're stumped, they way you may have last month by giving your mother fancy French-milled soaps or hand-knitted cashmere socks—no, the only true success come from really, truly knowing what makes your father tick. Once you've got that figured out, it's a matter of purchasing one of the 11 gifts in the slideshow above, each one tailored to a specific type of dad. Click through to find the right one for your old man now (just maybe don't call him that on the card, okay?).
